Pro-Keds

Pro-Keds Logo
PRO-Keds began in 1949 as a brand aimed at sports and athletic performance. Based on quality, durability and a solid reputation, PRO-Keds became one of the leading names in athletic footwear. The first PRO-Keds shoe, originally released as the Royal Tread, was the Royal, a classic canvas basketball shoe in high and low tops featuring an identifying red and blue power stripe adjacent to the toe. The Royal was worn and endorsed by the then Minneapolis Lakers, the first-ever NBA® champions, who won five consecutive titles in PRO-Keds, led by the great George Mikan.

By the late 70's, PRO-Keds was worn by a portfolio of NBA stars and had become tantamount with the biggest personalities in sports. The athletic shoe brand grew into a full performance line for athletes, making PRO-Keds one of the oldest shoe brands in the world.

Many styles attained cult status in the neighborhoods of New York among the streetwise who adopted PRO-Keds shoes as the first real sneakers with style. PRO-Keds became the shoe of choice with b-boys everywhere and earned its place as a true icon of early hip-hop culture.

After an absence of nearly 20 years, PRO-Keds shoes are reissuing some classic styles from its archives such as the Royal Canvas, the Court King and the historic Royal Master basketball shoe, bringing to life, once again, the heritage and history of this athletic brand.

To this day, PRO-Keds continues to stay rooted in its heritage with its classic styles while reinvigorating the footwear category with designs that capture today´s popular culture trends. In addition, Pro-Keds continues to progressively release authentic sports originals in a wide array of colors and materials, staying at the top of their game!

Bought these to replace my Converse. Not a good shoe! The sole is already separating from the front of the shoe ( I have only worn them 4 times). I have had to super glue twice already. Really just disappointed in the quality. Also the tongue rides down on the shoe and bunches up and looks terrible!

While the Keds feel and fit well, the workmanship and/or quality control is not as good as I wanted it. The eyelets aren't aligned well and end up crooked. This leaves the bottom edge and two eyelets near the toe, appear crooked. Pertaining to quality control, this is not the first time. My last sneaker order was for Converse Allstars and the same thing happened. Zappos should be able to do better. I could have returned the orders but there is no guarantee that it wouldn't happen again because it is quite evident that no one is actually checking the product before it ships.

Why do so few manufacturers offer wider sizes. These would fit perfectly if they were 4E wide.

These were a compromise when I couldn't find and Converse or classic Vans in my size. I like them, but they definitely run a bit big. I returned the 12s and got 11.5 - I haven't worn 11.5 since high school (many years ago). I'll put some insoles in them for arch support and I'm counting on them stretching out for width with use. I'd probably get them again; they're a nice departure from Converse which aren't exactly premium shoes themselves - we can all just admit we buy these for how they look.

then buy a pair of those Aetrex inserts, probably another 60$ bucks but you’ll have the most comfortable summer shoes. You look good to!

Great looking nostalgic shoe. The compliments flow when I wear these. I normally wear a 13 in my sneakers. Knowing that Chuck Taylors and Pro Keds run a size larger I sized down to a 12. Fit perfectly on the money. They were a tad bit on the expensive side but then again whats not. I have no regrets on this purchase.

My New Favorite Sneakers! The upper is canvas with snakeskin print. Never thought I'd ever love a pair of Keds since the women's sizes run narrow and they always seem to save the wide widths for just the basic styles. These Pro-Keds are really mens shoe sizes so the equivalent size for me is an 8M (typically a 9.5 to 10M in womens). Super happy!

They have a very cool minimal style but they run long and have no support. They feel similar to Chuck Taylors. If you have high arches or need supportive shoes, these probably won't work for you.

I often have to purchase men's sneakers as most women's do not carry size 12.5. But I never thought I would find a guy's shoe in pretty pink ... OMG !! My new favorite sneakers. I was afraid they would be too wide as my feet are narrow ... they are not. A plus was that they came with an extra pair of laces (pretty pink) in addition to the white ones that were on the shoes.

Fit is great, stylish and really comfortable. My feet sweat a lot so they tend to get wet on the outsidae due to them being made of thin canvas. All good though.
