Back in the day (the 1930′s to be exact) Keds, premiered “Booster,” a low cost and simple flat walk shoe which just about anyone could afford. Later on, the Booster, and many other shoes like it, took on the name “Wino” for obvious reasons. The cost kept it on the feet of just about anyone who needed footwear.

Today, Keds, re-issues the Booster with some design help from our favorite cobble, Mark McNairy. Using similar “red brick” colors found on his in-line  collections. The “hopsack” canvas upper does them right. Three colorways start it off. Look for them in August. Urban Outfitters will carry them.
