Following in the footsteps of Teva and Chaco, Keen has elevated the sandal category to a new level of performance with their hybrid shoe designs. Once a simple style of footwear designed for casual wear, today’s sandals are designed for adventure, water use and all-around fun.
Sandals fall into two primary categories, performance or “sport sandals” and lifestyle or “casual sandals.” Keen designs all of their shoes with adventure in mind and has a big presence in the sport sandal category. Keen’s all-terrain designs offer great ventilation, protection and traction in all environments. The signature Keen toe cap offers superior protection for your toes, too. In fact, most of Keen’s performance style sandals offer shoe-like protection for hiking and scrambling with full ventilation and water sports compatibility of a sport sandal. Their best selling Newport model comes in men’s, women’s and kid’s sizes. Its comfortable, anatomical footbed is treated with Aegis™ anti-microbial finish for long-wearing comfort and function. The Newport’s trademark toe cap offers protection while on the trail, while its super breathable design has made it a favorite among boaters and water sports enthusiasts around the country.
Keen offers several variations on the popular Newport style that offer varying degrees of increased performance and breathability for hiking, walking and warm weather pursuits. Secure fit matched with an EVA footbed and midsole means that you can run, scramble and play your hardest with Keen sandals. They even have water shoes for serious water sport applications that take performance water shoes to a new level with a drainable midsole, outsole, and toe box.
Keen’s sandal styles extend into the lifestyle category, too. They utilize the same comfy, anatomically designed footbeds in their lifestyle designs as they do in their performance styles. They even make flip flops with the Keen toe box to keep your toes safe. Their casual styles for women extend from slide-on sports minded models all the way to full-grain leather sandals suitable for city wear. Keen’s flip flop styles for men and women add arch support and non-slip padded soles to the classic beach style footwear.
Treat you feet to comfort and style this summer with a pair of sandals from Keen. Whether your plans include hiking to a remote waterfall or lounging at the beach, Keen has the footwear to keep your feet comfortable.
