Pro-Keds Making A Return

featsarea-shoePro Keds is a sneaker company that has been around for sometime now, but lately hasn’t been getting a lot of attention. When first launched in 1949, many styles attained cult status in the neighborhoods of New York among the streetwise who adopted PRO-Keds as the first real sneaker 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 is reissuing some classic styles (such as those seen here) from its archives, bringing to life once again the heritage and history of the brand.
