Keds

The sneakers have a sleek, simple silhouette with classic lace-up closure. They sit low on the ankle for a casual look and offer supportive comfort with a “cushioned ortholite insole” the brand says helps keep feet cool and dry by wicking away moisture. Plus, the canvas material is lightweight and breathable.

“All the cool kids wear Converse, but I love my Keds. I’ve been wearing them forever and have them in a million colors,” Thomas recently told The Strategist. “I wear my white ones the most, usually when I’m walking to the store or just loafing around casually,” she continued. “They’re very comfortable and aren’t cumbersome. So many shoes now have a life of their own, but I like these because they’re more streamlined.”

Thomas isn’t the only one singing Keds’ prasises. The classic shoes thousands of five-star reviews on Amazon, with reviewers calling the shoes “versatile” and “timeless.”

“I’m really happy with these shoes. They are true to size, look great, and are so comfortable. The insole is nicely shaped and cushioned…They look great with a summer dress, shorts, or jeans,” one Amazon reviewer wrote. Another called them their “everyday pair of shoes,” adding: “You can never go wrong with Keds.”

Plus, many reviewers agree with Thomas that the all-white Keds are a fashion staple. “I have tried a few other brands and looked in stores and nothing compares to Keds when it comes to the pure white,” one reviewer raved. “I have gotten so many compliments on these and how white they are. And they fit great. I love them!”

It’s clear that Thomas knows good shoes. After you add a pair to your cart, check out more of her favorite things, according to The Strategist, below:
