Ever since I caught sight of Keep's kicks, I've been borderline obsessed with boat shoes. My tootsies just don't feel right without them (seriously, I have 6 pairs, it's kind of sad). They're like Vans slip-ons, except way cuter. Now Keep is satisfying my snack attack with pretzel-patterned sneakers! Don't they look yummy?
Never heard of Keep? The line was started by designers Una Kim and Margot Jacobs in 2006. The gal pals--who are also skaters--entered the world of women's footwear because they were sick of settling for unsightly shoes in kids sizes or worse yet: buying insultingly girly skate shoes (think oversized sneaks with pink and black skull-and-crossbones). To learn more, check out the Oct/Nov 2007 issue of BUST for an interview, or head over to keepcompany.com to purchase a pair.
