The first official Boy Scout sneaker.
It can take all the brutal punishment you can dish out.
When you’re sliding into home plate or climbing over sharp rocks, your sneakers can take one heck of a beating.
So when Keds made the first official Boy Scout sneaker, we made it extra tough.
We used extra-tough thread for the stitching and extra-strang rubber for the soles.
And talking about soles, just take a look at ours. They’ll give you a sure grip wherever you go. Even if you have to climb up a long rope.
Another thing that you’ve probably noticed about our sneaker is the color. It matches your uniform.
(For the first time you can be completely in uniform while wearing sneakers.)
So, all in all, you’ve got a sneaker that not only gives a great performance. But also a great appearance.
