Along with her Bravehearts campaign, Taylor Swift partnered up with Keds on a very fitting shoe collaboration. The collection — which retails for $50 a pair — features 12 Champion sneaker styles reimagined. "The sneakers are really fun and easy to wear, and the designs reflect some of my favorite things," said Swift. Translation: the classic silhouette comes covered in a quirky sunglasses print; chevron patterns are tinged with mini guitars, paw prints, and flowers; and a stars-and-anchors motif provides a preppier slant. And if the shoes don't already speak for themselves, Swift sat down with stylist Zanna Roberts Rassi to talk all things collaboration, personal style evolution, and "dressing like a fairy." Keep reading for the best Swift style quotes, as well as a complete look at the Swift for Keds collection inside.

Our latest shoe — rather, shoe color — obsession may not exactly fall into this season's lighter, brighter palette, but it certainly does make a serious case for red's unequivocal statement-making power. It boils down to this: we love the idea of sticking to the outfit basics (we're talking white tee and denim cutoffs here). So, when one accessory can do all the work, that's kind of like styling nirvana — herein lies the appeal of a great red sandal.
Whether the shoe be flat-soled and adorned with the bare two-strap minimum or come complete with a chunky platform and sexier lace-up details, the idea is to turn heads with one fell swoop of standout red and a cool silhouette to match. And let us remind you that these sandals were made to be worn for day and night. So, if this weekend's brunch calls for a red-hot pick-me-up, then look no further than our picks — at every heel height and price point — below.
