As a Lindy Hopper, it’s pretty mandatory that you have at least one pair of Keds in your collection for dancing. They are comfortable, last for a long time and come in cool colours and now super cool designs. BUT did you know that Keds had a division that started in the 1930’s that were strictly for women called “Kedettes“? They did! and the line was stylish, really beautiful and with its shock-absorbing sole also comfortable (Keds history)!
Take a look at the following selection of vintage ads for Kedettes and start imagining how cute you would have looked on the dance floor with them on…sigh.
Love this dancing Kedette ad
I will take the Green one’s, the Yellow ones, brown ones…..
This ad is just adorable (and so me) and the polka dot bow shoe is to die for!
I just loved the colours in this ad and had to add it to the collection of pics.
All of these 1950’s Kedettes would be perfect in my closet, every single one.
I may be tall but I’m a sucker for a wedge and these wedges don’t seem to be too tall for little old me and they are so beautiful as well.
1940’s Kedettes are simply gorgeous and I have at least 10 dresses that would look perfect with them 🙂
There you have it, Keds was not always a brand for just running shoes. Now I don’t know about you but I think I might run off to ebay/etsy and see if any still exist in this world that I can drool over.
