Keds Champion – the original trainer?

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.


The Keds Champion dates back to 1916, giving it some claim to being the very first trainer on the market. Although today, it’s probably viewed as more of a plimsoll.

If you want a pair, they’re available for £30.
