Keds wanted to make a mule unlike anything they'd seen before. Something versatile and sporty but still totally feminine. So they turned to their classic Kickstart tennis shoe. In mule form, it feels a bit more dressed up and it’s also an easy way to instantly update everyday basics. Because its laces go down to the toe (rather than stopping in the middle of the foot), you can pull the laces tight or keep them loose in order to find just the right tightness.
