I will include photos of my old keds compared with the new ones. My old keds were a size 6.5W. My foot size is actually a size 6 XW so first I ordered those. The length was the same length as my old 6.5!! And the width was even thinner. So I ordered up, another size 6.5 and this time XW.
If you look at my photos obviously my old shoes are more worn and therefore more stretched out. Additionally, they're also looser in the laces. But even with these new ones looking at the soles it's clear to see they are slightly narrower and also a good couple centimetres longer.
Why do good brands have to change their design? The arch support is also less. In my old keds there was more padding in the arch.
I'm pretty disappointed because now I will definitely have to buy arch inserts if I want to wear these because I have plantar faciitis. I don't understand also why a size 6XW is narrower than a size 6.5 W. Going by a typical width size chart, (healthyfeetstore is the source) a size 6 XW should be 4 1/16" wide whereas a size 6.5 W should be 3 3/4" wide but the size 6XW was significantly more narrower by a substantial amount, a few centimetres, than my old 6.5 W.
These shoes have certainly changed; with less arch support, narrower sizing, and a longer length. I don't know how I feel continuing to buy them after this and I may have to find a new shoe that still carries W sizes.
(The worn out looking shoe in my photos is my old 6.5 W and the newer one is the 6.5 XW.)
The side is separating from the sole. I've never put them in the washing machine or anything, and I wouldn't say they take a ton of abuse (I'm a stay at home mom, and don't wear my shoes in the house, so it's not like I'm on my feet all day every day in these shoes).
I plan on contacting Keds to see if they offer any sort of warranty. Maybe I received a lemon pair or something, because I've only ever heard good things about Keds. These are my first pair, so I'm not terribly impressed.
If Keds offers a warranty and replacement I'll update my review to reflect that.
The size is spot on and maybe just slightly wider than I expected (no complaints about that). Until recently, I thought I had wide feet, but I Googled the correct way to measure your feet and found out that I'm really a 10.5 normal width instead of an 11 wide as I thought. I looked this up before I ordered of course (there were barely any 10.5's available anyway and I prefer the slightly looser fit--my feet like to have their own personal space) and was expecting a little room for socks, which there is, but I could also easily wear them with no socks or just thin liners without any worry of them sliding off (I could probably wear them without the laces and I doubt they'd slide off that way either).
The only thing I wasn't very fond of, and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5, is that the arch support is too far forward for my foot. The arch support starts before my arch does, which feels somewhat awkward, but it's not enough to keep me from wearing them. I'm assuming that with wear, the arch support may form to my foot better.
These shoes look great with skinny jeans and leggings. I haven't tried them with anything else yet, but I imagine they'd look cute with almost anything. I also ordered a similar pair of Ked's, the Chillax style, in a pastel color that I'm planning to wear with shorts/dresses during the summer.
I do feel that I paid a bit much for a used canvas sneaker at around $25 including shipping, but they are the shoes that I wanted. For what I paid, I hope that they last longer than generic canvas sneakers of the same style.
All in all, this is a versatile shoe, that is true to size, and seems to be well made. If anything changes, such as the pair wearing out too soon, I will update my review.
a kid's size. I wear a size 7 1/2 AA and, yes, that's what I got. But they are too tight, kind of low-cut, and somewhat flimsy as well. In hindsight, I should have opted for Grasshopper "Janie." A much better fit and quality! Find them on Beallsflorida.com.
