This is a brilliant idea: take a vintage shoe style that may not be the most comfortable for dancing in its original form, or the most affordable when made in leather, and make a Keds-style sneaker replica. Suede the soles and you’re set! I wore these at DCLX for the first time and they were comfortable and received a lot of attention.
