Keds Sneakers: Making a change since 1916

The U.S. Rubber company came into existence in 1892 when 9 different rubber manufacturers that were based in Connecticut merged together with an aim to channel the innovative vulcanising process of rubber to produce a range of rubber based goods. In 1916, they decided to produce good quality rubber shoes under one name which was “Peds” (the Latin word for “foot”). They then opted for “Keds” when they found out that “Peds” was already taken which is a Native American word for moccasins.

When the U.S. Rubber Company saw a need in the market for a casual, rubber-soled shoe, Keds took the opportunity to introduce to the world a canvas plimsoll (currently known as the Champion Original) which was an instant hit because of its casual appeal. Its practical design and style that is extremely appropriate with a huge range of outfits and occasions, the Champion Original which was available in both black and white took the whole world by storm and started collecting an ever growing fanbase up to this very day.

Keds is the first ever footwear company to introduce sneakers to the world. The term sneakers was created as a nickname for Keds because of their footwear rubber soles that that made any steps taken so quiet, anyone could “sneak around” without being heard. Even though there was a cultural revolution in the 1960s, canvas sneakers became common and was accepted everywhere. Keds also started spreading their wings all over the world as they become a huge hit in the United States. In countries like Russia, the Pro-Keds (a collection of simple athletic shoes) became so common that the word “Keds” was accepted as a term for sneakers. Today, as one of the most sought after brand, Keds continues to impress the world with their unique and out of this world designs.
