Keds’ signature Champion style has never really gone out of style since it was released in 1916. They’re guaranteed to be on any best sneakers of all time list, and it’s easy to see why. Keds’ timelessly minimal, preppy aesthetic is still beloved by kids, adults, students, vacationers, and even professionals.

Recently, Keds has revamped their classic look with slight style tweaks and different colorways that bring the Champion squarely into 2018. Check out the best of these knew styles below.

5. Keds Champion Wool

These wool champions are ideal for those chilly months when sneakers don’t keep you warm, but boots are overkill. They feature a super minimal look that we recommend styling with an eye-catching pair of jeans, your best vintage tee, and a great jacket.
