When it comes to comic book besties, Betty and Veronica are two of the coolest gal pals despite their fashion differences. But whether fans relate more to Betty’s upbeat preppy looks or Veronica’s dark features and fierce silhouettes, both River Vixens' styles are represented in the Betty and Veronica x Keds collection.
Fans of the Archie Comics can step into an assortment of six super cute (and nostalgic) styles designed with the characters and the Archie Comics in mind. According to a press release from Keds, the collection features classic Betty and Veronica pop art, denim fabrics, and touches of velvet to reminisce in the characters’ iconic styles. Plus, the collaboration reintroduces the animated dynamic duo with messages of friendship and empowerment, so it’s a retro, yet timeless collection.
Although Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge first appeared as fashion-forward characters in the 1950’s Archie Comics, the two resurfaced as a brand of their own in 2016.
"We love that we get to keep these two iconic females relevant along with the reincarnation of these characters in the CW show, Riverdale,” said Betty and Veronica Creative Director Jena Kane in the press release. “Together, we are keeping these timeless characters alive as strong, modern day women."
The Betty and Veronica x Keds collection is officially available on the Keds website on April 8, and each pair retails between $60 and $75.
Grab the B to your V and scope out all these sweet sneaks in this collaboration. Here’s what Keds fans can expect in the collection.
