With summer approaching ... I'm hoping to find a good source for old-fashioned canvas tennis shoes, what we used to call tennies.

Keds is one source, but I don't like the visible Keds tag.



If you know of options, please share. I'm thinking of colors such as navy, blue, tan, white, olive, etc.

Another vote for PF Flyers. They have one in natural canvas that's fantastic.

Yes these surely looks not only great but very colorful as well. I like them and they makes me want to buy one for myself.

Thanks for sharing.

I still call 'em "tennies"!
I picked up these Top Sider 75th edition awhile back. They come in navy, ecru, red and seafoam.

Very nice Parker. Of course, I expect nothing less of you.

I certainly prefer the five pairs of eyelets of these and the PF's over the four pairs on the Keds.

PS I'm glad to know that others still call them tennies. I wasn't sure.
