Riverdale’s feuding friends Betty and Veronica get their own sneaker line
The collection by Keds features six sneakers in classic 1950s comic design and starts from S$81.
Riverdale’s iconic feuding female duo are now putting their best foot forward – by getting their own sneakers.
For over 75 years, love rivals and best friends Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge have switched up their style through the decades. Now, Keds is bringing the comic characters to life with a line of Betty and Veronica sneakers.
Priced from US$59.95 (S$81.38) to US$74.95 (S$101.74), the collection features six different shoes, from slip-on sneakers printed with black-and-white comic strips to a muted pink design featuring comic book sound effect graphics.
The Keds x Betty and Veronica collection is available to shop on the brand’s website and via US online retailer Zappos.
Betty and Veronica have been feuding friends since the 1940s. Betty was introduced in December 1941, while Veronica was introduced the following April as her love rival to titular character Archie Andrews.
In the live-action Riverdale series by CW, Lili Reinhart plays Betty and Camila Mendes plays Veronica. The show, which debuted in 2017, has since launched its co-stars to A-list status.
