HOW KEDS AID FOOTWORK
Here’s something most stars have discovered about footwork training – There’s just one best shoe for it – the Shoe of Champions – Keds are design to give you fast, sure footwork. Keds’ rugged canvas tops bring snug, sturdy support to your ankles. Keds’ outsoles give you a sure grip on any playing surface. Keds’ insoles keep your feet cool throughout the hardest games.
And just as Keds outsell all other canvas rubber-soled shoes – so Keds wear longer, give you more foot miles per dollar than any shoes you’ve ever had at equal price.
You can get Keds at the best shoe dealers in your town. Ask for Keds by name. They are not Keds unless the name “Keds” is on the shoe.
YOU can Pedigreed Dog!
Free, too! Wire-haired fox terriers – the smartest puppies you ever saw – are looking for owners. Want one? There are a lot of them and you’ve got a big chance. They’re the prizes in the Second keds Dog Contest – open to every boy and girl under 16. Nothing to buy – nothing to sell.
