V Style: Animal Style


John Kennedy / December 16, 2009

The latest installment in the collaboration between Keds and Opening Ceremony has just touched down in New York, though it’s from London town that the limited-edition kicks take their inspiration.

Featuring three different horse hair animal print styles in cheetah, leopard and zebra, the women’s Keds are inspired by the gritty 70’s London punk scene that spawned The Sex Pistols and The Ramones. With their floral print interior and white laces, the Keds are about as punk as Barry Manilow and are more Miley Cyrus than The Monochrome Set, but what that means really comes down to a question of musical taste rather than style. No judgment. –Adrien Field
