Keds Shoes for women and kids. Keds created the first shoe with a soft rubber sole in 1916 and it quickly became an American Classic. Their original sneaker, called "the Champion," has remained their style icon for over ninety years. Their authentic, classic style was worn by the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Today, a new generation has discovered the Keds brand that has helped inspire a new spirit of American style and youthfulness. Keds casual canvas shoes come in a variety of styles and colors.
