Before hipsters took over Williamsburg. Before SoHo turned into an open air mall. Before workwear became a fashion statement. There was PRO-Keds. Not just a “classic” athletic footwear label but the original athletic footwear label, PRO-Keds welcomes the new season with 2 silhouettes that need no introduction the Royal and 69er. Marbled Leather, Waxed Canvas, Washed Twill and in other various materials, the Royal is still the same as it was in 1949. 2 decades later, it was the 69er’s turn to shine on the spotlight, especially on the streets of New York where a quick pick up game could take place anywhere. PRO-Keds Spring 2011 Collection, a rendition of old school favorites with new school appointments, now at PRO-Keds retail locations and its official online store.
