Major League Baseball
For the 2016 season, Keds teamed with Major League Baseball to release the Champion MLB Pennant collection featuring 11 teams — including the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers. The shoes are embroidered with team logos and include baseball-stitch detailing.
Taylor Swift Collection
Keds’ multiyear deal with Taylor Swift was a major push for the brand. Last year, Swift starred in Keds’ Ladies First campaign, kicking off a new era surrounding female empowerment. With multiple collections, Swift gave fans shoes commemorating her 1989 World Tour, along with the Champion Sneaky Cat.
In 2011, Keds teamed with Opening Ceremony to create a collection of baseball-inspired shoes. Keds reintroduced the Championship Series in three colors for Opening Ceremony’s Fashion’s Night Out event.
