Shopping Alert: Nanette Lepore Does Keds!

03/08/2007 at 12:00 PM ET

We love when fashion is not only affordable, but comfortable as well. So, we were thrilled when we heard that uber-adorable designer Nanette Lepore was teaming up with Keds, and the results are everything we hoped for! From the leopard-print ballet sneaker, $55, to the polka-dotted thongs, $55, these are one-up on your run-of-the-mill flats. Pair them with sweet sundresses, like Keds spokeswoman Mischa Barton, or jeans for a chic but casual look.

ok..i just looked at the polk-dot thong shoes..first of all, there are just ugly! second of all…$55??? are you kidding? I get my flip-flops for about $3 and they are a hell of a lot nicer!!!

jennifer l. on

Nope! U G L Y.

Nicole on

these are hideous….

Kristin on

and wow, they are ugly.

Jane on

i have to agree when i first saw them i thought ugley, you have to be kidding me. then i read the postings and was happy to find i wasn’t the only one. and i’m going to laugh at the people who buy them. also mischa barton was linked to them i think that says it all.

Lynn on

Ummmmmm!!!!! No.

elle on

No I would not buy, they are desperately UGLY. And $55 for canvas Keds…for real?

Jamie C. on

The polka dot ones are pretty, how can ya’ll say their ugly?
the leopard-print ones are ugly, but not the polka dot ones. Ya’ll must not have eyes. But I would never pay that much 4 any shoe.

ucokaty on

hmmm not my cup of tea… but i’m more of a stiletto girl! To each his own though right?!

Dixie Marie on

Wow!! Those shoes are so ugly, they hurt my eyes!!!

KR on

i think they are kind of cute. stanging alone as they are probably wouldn’t complement them as much as with a whole ensemble like jean capris and a cute tee. and they are sneakerish so although $55 is a bit much it’s still doable if you’d like to splurge a bit.

Emi on

uco katy – stiletto girl? can you say shallow? god girls are stupid.

ucokaty on

emi…. sweetheart, you don’t even know me!!!! i work in an office and i guarantee i dress way better then you ever could! go attack someone you actually know!!!!!!! how pathetic….

ucokaty on

oh and by the way, how does one’s shoe preference make them “shallow”? I can understand how killing an animal fur a fur coat is “shallow” or getting plastic surgery is sometimes called “shallow”, even that is debatable…but a style of shoes??? haha that’s laughable!

Julie on

ucokaty, you can tell s/he was just looking for someone to attack! Just ignore the bitterness :P

Kate on

I think they are so cute and cool, but you have to wear it with somenthing classic, for instance: a black jeans, a white T-shirt and a silk scarf.
And they are different from other shoes… it’s nice not to wear always the same style.
But I agree with you that are very expensive!!!!

jkl on

those are hiddeous who un their right mind would wear those

ucokaty on

thanks julie you are RIGHT! i got on here to talk to normal, rational, civilized people like you!you are a doll :)

tangy on

i think this shoes is adorable….i saw mischa barton wearing them with this cute little black dress and the first thing i noticed about the outfit were the shoes

they’re girly and youthful and not the same classical lepard print which i think makes them even more fun!

i’d really like a pair but 55 dollars is a bit much for keds (these are the only only i’ve seen that are even worth buying tho)

kathy on

Im sorry but I think Star looks awful she was much prettier and healthier looking in 2006. She has gone to far I hope for her sake she doesnt go farther.Her head and face look so much bigger and unreal. Like I said she was a pretty woman before but now she really looks awful gain back 15 20 lbs you will be happier and look much better

tray on

Allie on
