Simply Fab: Design Your Own Keds

Keds are always cute. And I have to say the brand's model, Mischa Barton, is a good fit. It's been a while though, and technology recently made me purchase my first pair since third grade.

When I found out you can customize Keds on the brand's website, I just had to give shoe designing a stab. The technology can look scary, but it's quite easy. After playing around, I created some trés chic Keds from an Eiffel Tower photo I found on the Internet. For $70, I can afford to take a risk and see if it will translate as well in person. Stay tuned: I'll keep you posted when they arrive. Besides lace-ups, you can also choose from regular slip-ons and mini slip-ons. Imagine the creative possibilities — your favorite fashion editorials, magazine covers, celebrity muses, and artwork on a pair of Keds. Beyond Fab.

To see some more designs I created for fun,

Dude! I don't often get excited about sneakers, but these are so freaking cute. Now I gotta think about what I want on mine. (I imagine there are things you CAN'T put on a sneaker.) :nerdgirl:

I actually just received the shoes I designed in the mail and they came out awesome. I highly recommend it. There are so many different things you can design it's limitless. Go check it out for yourself, kedsstudio.com

I saw this in Lucky, how you can design your own pair...I would love to try it. Keds are cute.

This sounds like hours of fun when I've got time to try my hand at it. Though $70 seems like an awful lot of money to spend on a pair of Keds.

Love them! I've been playing around designing for the last hour - it's actually really easy and once you get going, more and more ideas start popping up! And Javsmav - I too think high school/middle school when I hear Keds, but actually they have some super cute wedges (and for a shorty like me, I need em!).

Very cool! I just designed a pair using a Mondrian design.

They actually make some cute little flats, nowadays. They've done some interesting collabs with designers, too. It's still catering to a younger market, but coming from someone who schleps around campus all day, a cute little comfortable shoe that I can chuck in the washing machine is a good deal for me. I can't think of what I'd put on a pair, though...maybe argyle? I'm an utter freak for argyle :)

wait, what?!? you just spent $70 on a pair of keds?! Where am I and what year is it? 1992? I would have killed for these in the 8th grade, but I haven't seen anyone besides overweight tourists and Mischa Barton wearing keds since I was in high school.
