I've only bought "look-a-like" Keds from Target. Not the real deal, but still comfy and a little bit more affordable. I tried on a pair of real Keds at Kohls last weekend and loved how adorable they were. They were also comfortable and made seemingly, very well. I'm debating on shelling out a few extra bucks for a pair and use them as "back-to-school shoes". (Hey, not only high schoolers should get new back to school clothes, right?) I'm loving the Kate Spade and Keds collaboration, these are a little more expensive being at $75 but still not terrible. I'm swooning over the polka dots and stripes.
