Trendy Tuesday - Keds

When I was growing up, the basic white Keds were totally cool. Everyone knew if you had the "real deal" or not, cause the real ones had that little blue "keds" sign on them that the knock offs didn't. Over the years, Ked's has tried to keep up with the flow of fashion, which is fine, but I was stunned the other day to see these Do-Si-Do Linen Wedges:


I LOVE wedges, but the thought of mixing that look with Keds just doesn't appeal to me. It would be like Reebok hightops adding a wedge...

Anyways, although I'm not a huge fan of the big wedge, Ked's does make these super cute mini wedges that I think I might have to try out:

They have cute shoes in their slip on section, too. I just have one question? Why are keds that expensive? I always thought of them as cheap. I'm not paying $50 for a pair of shoes(unless its like a running shoe).

Should've called the big wedges "Do-Si-DON'T." Get it?? Yeah, I'm lame.

Keds are the first childhood status symbol that I recall. I remember, if you didn't have the blue tag, you just weren't quite "it".

It was supposed to be the end of September, but I think we're pushing it back to early October because the weather will still be nice & we have a less likely chance of hurricane weather. What about you guys?!?

Yeah, the second one...that's the ticket! : )

I remember my mom wouldn't buy me Keds when I was in middle school cause my feet were growing so fast. So I took her old ones and cut the blue tag off that back and glued it to my cheap K-mart versions. The things we do to be trendy, huh?

I live in China and I have to say that the high-wedged tennis shoe is very common here! But I have to agree that it's pretty ugly.
