Published Feb. 15, 2017

Rifle Paper Company's floral takeover of the world — first with our stationery, then our bags, phone cases, children's book classics and even our walls — is coming along nicely.

Starting today, you can pre-order Keds sneakers bedecked in three of Rifle founder Anna Bond's girliest prints. (And you can get file folders to match.)

The Keds classic "Champion" tennis shoe is $55 in the coral-toned Jardin de Paris print.

The Keds "Triple Decker" platform slip-on is $60 in the black Lively Floral pattern with pops of pink and blue.

The "Triple Decker Champion" is, naturally, what you get when you combine those shoes, available in the pale-pink Wildflower print. Also $60.

Shipments begin March 9.
