I’ve never considered myself a shoe shiner, but being a shopping editor means using more shoes than my closet can fill (what a problem). Recently, Keds sent its limited edition Renaissance women’s sneakers ($85), and I think I’ve met my shoe shine mate (aka shoe soulmate). I am all for retro fashion – Y2K stylethe ’90s baggy jeansand whatever else is trending on TikTok. I took it all in, and these Keds fit the bill back. Released for the second time in 30 years, the iconic style of the Renaissance shoe is here to grace today’s streetwear. It was originally a running shoe in the ’80s for its light weight, breathability, durability, and comfortable style, and now it’s a collector’s item. Literally only 300 pairs were released globally.
Where can I buy Keds Renaissance sneakers?
Keds exclusive partnership with Bodega for the return of this classic shoe (including a limited edition colorway). As mentioned before, there are only 300 pairs worldwide and they’re selling out fast – but don’t stress, this isn’t the end of classic Keds. Jen Lynch, Vice President and General Manager of Keds, said in a press release: “We look forward to celebrating and showcasing the heritage and depth of the archives with a range of reduced pieces. prices are high throughout the year,” said Jen Lynch, Vice President and General Manager of Keds, in a press release – so stay tuned! If your size is out of stock, there are pairs similar to this Female runner-up Tiasa ($80) and this Courty II women’s leather goods ($55) gives it an old-school feel.
Would I Recommend the Keds Renaissance Sneakers?
I would totally recommend this shoe. The color scheme creates the perfect accent to your outfit and the beige mesh won’t get as dirty as the white shoes you have in your closet. I wear a size 9, and they fit me perfectly. While I won’t be running in these shoes (they’re so pretty), I will absolutely wear them everywhere I go. I love these sneakers, and believe me, so do you. Hurry up and get yourself a pair before they run out of stock!
