To celebrate its collaboration with The Whitney Museum, Keds has released a a conceptual sneaker from artist Jenny Holzer. Keds has gone all sorts of collab-crazy in the past few months, with limited-editions of the plain Jane slip on from Alice + Olivia and an ever-continuing “Centuries” line that’s been cycling through the decades. The Jenny Holzer shoe, featuring the words “Protect me from what I want” (a comment on consumerism, perhaps?), aligns with Keds’ sponsorship of The Whitney exhibit Christian Marclay: Festival, as well as a summer concert line on Fridays highlighting experimental music. Throw on these avant garde kicks, and you’re sure to fit in with the prog rock scene.
