Keds Announces it Will Launch an Apparel Collection in 2012

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Iconic sporty-shoe company Keds has announced a partnership with global sourcing network Li & Fung to create a Keds-branded apparel line, reports WWD. The men's and women's line will cater to The Millenials—that generation of young 'uns who are all over media lately (more on that later)—and will launch in Spring 2012.

Does anyone else (translate: is anyone else as old as we are) remember back in the late-80s or early-90s, Keds had a very short-lived apparel line? We distinctly remember owning a white Keds sweatshirt—literally, it was a white sweatshirt that had the Keds blue logo emblazoned on the front—sometime either in elementary or junior high school. Bueller?
