Do you remember Keds? I know they still exist, but I remember rocking them out as a kid. I was a big fan of slip-on shoes, especially ones that also allowed me to run amok. They weren’t quite gym shoes, though you could get away with them in a pinch. Keds were your everyday sneakers, run to the store on a Sunday kind of shoes.
Nowadays I would give that honor to TOMS shoes ($44-98), which are similar to Keds in style, but come with a higher purpose. You see, with every pair of TOMS shoes sold, they give a pair to a child who needs them. One of my friends only wears TOMS, swearing they are the most comfortable shoe on the market.
Good shoes doing good? Put it on the Wish List.
