Keds Hosts Sneaker Design Contest With F.I.T. & Pratt Institute

words // Brandon Richard

Looking to put a fresh spin on their classic Champion model and give opportunities to two of the preeminent design institutes in the country, Keds has teamed up with the Fashion Institute of Technology and Pratt Institute to create limited edition sneakers as part of a design contest.

Each school is represented by four students, who created unique graphic designs on the Champion. The looks are currently available to vote on at Lord & Taylor. The winning school's shoes will be sold at the popular retailer this July. Voting ends on May 5th and the winner will be chosen on the 10th. Cast a vote for your favorite today.
