Keds Tennis Shoes
Quite possibly the first pair of Keds tennis shoes ever made,
If not, you tell me what you know.
Great Story behind these shoes
I am selling these to help purchase equipment and create a nonprofit video studio.
( Rare women's Keds Tennis shoes - approx: 1916).
(Excellent shape for 100 years old)
Around 1892, the U.S. Rubber Company came up with more comfortable rubber sneakers
with canvas tops, called Keds.
The Pictures are below.....
Extremely Rare Keds Tennis Shoes located
in Eugene Oregon
I have been looking for information for years.
and even Keds does not have a pair and the only other pair I have ever seen are Black.
Keds wanted me to give them to their Museum.
these shoes are almost 100 years old
In 1916, Goodyear and US Rubber merged to create the ultimate
footwear franchise, Keds. US Rubber had over 30 individual brand names
using their special process, which they consolidated under one label, Keds
Here are a few pictures of quite possibly the first pair of KEDS Tennis shoes ever made.
They are both rare and for Sale to the highest offer.
I may put them on ebay one of these days
The basket is also for sale I believe it is over a hundred years old but I have no way of knowing for sure
I have spent several hours looking for information on the internet but to no avail.
If you have any information please let me know.
I am trying to put together a video studio in Eugene Oregon for People to be able to learn how to use the equipment correctly and create video projects for non profits that they are involved with
the proceeds will go to
purchasing some of the necessary equipment that is required to make this happen.
we are not a 501 C3 non profit organization
but we are involved with a 501 C3 non profit organization
as they have offered a space for us to get started putting together a video studio
Additional photos of the shoes and baket may be found at
