Nate “Tiny” Archibald wore PRO-Keds; so did Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. (Your shoe size will presumably fall somewhere between the two.) Keds, the very first shoes to be called “sneakers” (thanks to their noiseless rubber soles), added PRO-Keds to their team in 1949. The line may be designed specifically for athletes, but these classic canvas and leather kicks have appealed to generations of top-notch jocks and style-minded weekend warriors alike.
Ah, that perennial problem: You’re scouring a sale for shoes, and just when you think you’ve found the perfect pair, and are starting to figure out which suits and jeans they'll work with, you suddenly discover that the store is completely, utterly sold out of them in your size. It’s the shopping equivalent of that old trope in the movies where a turntable needle scratches across a record. Well, whether you’re looking for sneakers, boots, or lace-ups, you won’t experience that here, because every shoe in this sale comes in your size.
As much as we here at Gilt love all of our sales, we can't argue with the instinctive logic of a shoe sale that give you quick access to all the great options we've got in your size. For all you size 10 members, we've got a great array of shoes by Cole Haan, Alexander McQueen, ALIFE, Paul Smith, and a ton of other celebrated designers. See a pair you like? We suspect they'll be a perfect fit.
This selection of kicks from the masters of old-school style at Pro-Keds has everything the discerning sneakerhead could want. Classic canvas low-tops? Check. Updated leather models punched up with a dose of modern edge? Not a problem. It’s exactly the kind of sport-inspired cool you’d expect from a line that’s been one of the top names in the sneaker game for over half a century.
Rubber-soled style appears here in both formal and casual, classic and contemporary shapes. From the classic PF Flyers and PRO-Keds to the decidedly modern sneakers of Cushe, Clae and Gourmet, this massive sale has all you need when benchmade wingtips are too formal but a pair of beat up sneakers is too <i>declassé</i>
