Keds saddle shoe sneakerWhile all of the trend forecasting is pointing to the 80s for fall, I’m loving the 80s-meets-50s footwear mashup of the new Keds saddle shoe sneaker, right in time for back to school shopping.

It’s that rare hybrid that’s got all the comfort and support you want in a sneaker, but can still look adorable with a twirly skirt or little belted dress. The only drawback is that my own dainty-footed preschoolers can’t fit in them since they start at a 8.5. But on the good side – they go up to a 6. So I’m wondering if I could fit into them myself. –Liz
