Kate Spade & Keds, More Milly & Sperry, Hello Kitty!

Hello-Hello, and happy Thursday.

Today we are looking at shoes, springtime fare of the collaborative sort. The first partnership effort is one we love, Keds and Kate Spade have created a small line of sneakers.

Those are Monopoly game tokens. The Iron is going away, to be replaced with the Cat.  Hasbro asked fans to vote on Facebook, deciding which token would be “retired”.

And which would be added, voters chose the cat from the options shown below. Yours truly was fond of the robot, while The Consort favored the guitar.

  1. What was their reasoning for changing one of the tokens? I was rather partial to the iron and it seems like Monopoly is such a time-honored board game that they wouldn’t want to mess with tradition. Maybe that’s just my old fuddy-duddy rearing her head 🙂

  2. NO!!!!!!!! I love the iron and hate change! I just dont’ understand why they would change a good thing. Add one, maybe but don’t take the originals away..that is sad:(
    I remember my Keds days and my kids wear Sperrys now…..good things never die. Stay safe and lets hope this snow doens’t wreak too much havoc on the northeast!

  3. I especially adore the Keds with the bow!

  4. I love the new shoe collaborations.

  5. I cant wait to pick up a pair of Kate Spade Keds this spring! They’re all so precious!
