I have worn Keds for the last 20 years or more. I love the oxfords canvas shoe. It was difficult to find them in a narrow width before the internet, but would wear thicker socks with the medium width. Still the most comfortable shoe I've everworn. Well I finally found them in an 8 1/2 narrow. The first pair I got was purple and fit perfect. Well when I ordered my 2nd pair in red I was and am still having health issues with my kidney and my feet have been swollen to 2x their normal size and I haven't been able to put any shoe on my foot in months. However I know that when I am able, I will love them only because I've worn the narrow purple and the are perfect.I have worn my white,tan, blue, etc for years in comfort. I have about 7 pairs and will continue to buy Keds for their comfort and their variety of colors. I will someday have every color.
