Craftsmanship is a vital benchmark for shoemaking. All of the excellence and beauty that one sees in footwear today came from centuries-old traditions of creating the perfect shoe. From high fashion stilettos to casual sneakers, each and every shoe is designed and constructed through this outstanding craft. Even though some look simple, the outcome becomes a beautiful feature that makes the footwear all the more outstanding. One only has to look at Keds’ collaboration with Rifle Paper Co. and see their Triple Decker Slip-ons in Lively Embroidery to understand this.

The collaboration between Keds and stationary brand Rifle Paper Co. has been going on for a few years, but the Triple Decker Slip-ons in Lively Embroidery was just released during the latter part of March 2018. The shoe was part of the new spring line from the American shoe brand, which consisted of other classic Keds models in full bloom as well. At $80 per pair, the beautifully-embroidered Triple Decker Slip-ons have become one of Spring’s most popular shoes. They’re now on sale at only $59.
With only a needle and some yarn, Rifle Paper Co. was able to liven up the classic Keds Triple Decker Slip-On shoe with floral embroidery that harkens back to simpler and more innocent times. The modest design is its most endearing feature, capturing a nostalgia that will have people treasuring the pair for years to come. It’s an equal mix of Keds’ simplistic approach to shoe craftsmanship and Rifle Paper Co’s outlandish floral designs. And with the cushioned outsole and narrow fit, it’s also one the season’s most comfortable new footwear.
The shoe is made up of canvas, a material that Keds has built their shoe empire on. While comfortable and beautiful, the canvas is not that strong of a material. One’s feet are left vulnerable to any type of weather, particularly that of the wet variety. Considering that the pair is also mostly stark white, it leaves a lot of space for dirt to be more evident than ever. This makes the shoe difficult to maintain, especially since they can only be washed through air dry only.
