What It Is: Keds, the classic canvas sneaker brand, has regained its cool cred by tapping another ‘It’ girl (a mantle formerly held by Mischa Barton, who put the line on the fashionable map back in The O.C.’s heyday) to not just model, but actually ‘design’ some kicks with them. That girl is none other than Taylor Swift, reigning queen of the pop scene. Her shoes are predictably Taylor – feminine, girly, with a classic, preppy edge. The cool part is the brand is continually releasing new styles, the latest being tied into her 1989 world tour. Whether you’re a fan or not, the shoes are too cute to pass up!
Who It’s For: Your niece, who loves all things Taylor. Your wife, who loves all things printed. Your sister, who loves all things sneakers.
What It Costs: Most pairs are in the $50-$70 range.
