Basic canvas tennis shoes haven’t changed in major ways for decades and the Keds brand is still being made, but the older ones have an edge over what’s been sold more recently. The soles on the old ones, especially, last longer.
There are also slight differences in the silhouette of the older shoes and the design of the insoles. Although 1950’s and 1960’s versions are still the best, as far as I’m concerned, so fun to find an ’80’s or ’90’s pair that may not ever have been worn!
A real classic and still my favorite . . . . . . . .
