Launched in the summer of 2006 Keep is a shoe company, a clothing company, an amalgam of interests, a way of being, a force, a language, a family and many other things. Keep started out making kicks for ladies but now the sizes run big enough to fit the bro’s too and a few styles are small enough for kids. Keep is proud to work closely with an international community of artists, thinkers, photographers and humorists. Our friends include painter Ashley Macomber, tattoo artist Marco Hernandez, designer Ulrika Lofgren, artist Amy Yao, photographers Tobin Yelland, Ray Potes, Deanna Templeton and many more. Keep is based in Los Angeles, CA, with a showroom in New York, and is run by Una Kim. Keep has a store on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles and is available from great retailers around the globe. For this Spring Summer 2009 as ever Keep boldly uses fabrics in fresh combinations, contrasting scales, patterns and colors to bring us Ginghams and simple Cordlane in bold primary colors adjacent to spicy Madras fabric. For Summer, Polka dots and stripes add new graphics to the range while the color palette widens to include cooler blues, soft grey and sunshine yellow. New screen-prints bring ?owers and watermelons to your very feet! Fun and eye-catching, these shoes will get you noticed. Visit keepcompany.com for details.
