Keds Century - Killing me through Time

I can not believe that I did not know about this until just yesterday. I feel so out of the loop and now I'm totally depressed.

Keds may possibly be one of my favorite shoes for all time. If I had to limit myself to one shoe, say on a desert island, or that I would have to wear for the rest of my life, it would be a pair of Keds Classic Champions in white canvas.

I've been wearing white Keds for as far back as I can remember and I can't imagine a time I haven't had at least one pair in my closet.

But because they are so classic and eternal to me I don't check in all the time to see what new things they have going on. And now I feel I've missed out because they are doing this amazing limited edition countdown of styles influenced by the decades of the 20th Century.

The 1910's Take Flight designs are so cool with an Amelia Earhart vibe. I wish I'd nabbed the white ones but the dark olive style is still available.

For the 1920's there's the Dapper and the Deville - menswear wingtip and Art Deco design.

1930's Throwback in natural, pink and black are the classic Keds we love.

Of course as limited editions, these have a limited run and I'm just killing myself over the fact that I was not able to get a pair of the amazing Dappers. I need need need these. Somehow I have to track a pair down.

Now I will be checking back eagerly to see the evolution over the remaining decades.

Can it get any better than these? I can't wait to find out.
