THE NEW SNEAKERS THAT PUT A ‘SWING’ IN YOUR STEP…

SWING-PATROL-SWING-DANCING-LESSONS-LONDON

We’ve been thanking the shoe gods (and goddesses – now let’s not be sexist) for the ‘cool trainer trend’ for a few seasons now. But as much as we love a plain trainer, there’s definitely been a lack of fun, printed options around…

Cue our new collaboration with iconic American sneaker brand, Keds. Bringing you all the comfort your hard-working toes can possibly imagine, plus a sprinkling of four original Oasis prints – designed in-house at Oasis HQ.

Pretty special, huh? We like to think so. In fact, to celebrate the new collaboration we did a little ‘Swing dance of joy’ with the London Swing Patrol last week. Why Swing we hear you ask? Well it’s not as random as it sounds…

Keds shoes were originally made for Swing – the high energy American dance craze that was fuelled by the rise of jazz music and big band in the 1930s and 40s (think of Robbie’s ‘Swing while you’re winning’ album then add cooler trainers and better moves).

The lesson was hilarious and fun in equal measure and we picked it up surprisingly quickly (or so we like to tell ourselves). In just over an hour our patient dance teachers had us mastering the basics, and tap-stepping all the way home. But you needn’t ‘do the Swing thing’, to qualify for our KEDs trainers – they’re just as good for foot-tapping to Pharell or boogieing to Beyoncé. Trust us.
