Keen footwear began with a moment of pure vision and a design question. Could a simple sandal protect the toes? The answer was yes, and Keen's innovative breakthrough sandal in 2003 was the first to protect the toe, changing the face of summer footwear forever.
Since then Keen sandals have become hugely popular thanks to efficient design, comfort, style and toe protection. Their range of walking shoes and hiking boots is equally well-respected in the outdoor world.
Keen promise to make a hike on the hill feel like a walk in the park.

After finding a ready market with sailing and water sport enthusiasts all over the world, this U.S. company has now produced a range of shoes suitable for a host of other outdoor activities, not to mention stylish, casual wear.
From coping with those unexpected downpours to simply helping to avoid tired feet, Keen have the answer in a collection of footwear that includes the original Newport sandal, the Targee 2 off-road shoe, and the Insulated Revel walking boot for women.
Keen Hybridology is about eliminating anything that comes between you and your comfort, ensuring a superior fit, extreme durability and exceptional performance. Not forgetting, of course, keeping those susceptible toes protected.
Named as ‘Launch of the Year’ and one to watch by the industry’s leading trade magazine in their inaugural season, Keen are as committed to caring for the world around them as they are to their own success in business.
They call this ethos HybridLife, and just one year after the company’s formation they donated their entire marketing budget to the Asian Tsunami relief fund.
Their mantra is work, play…and always give something back.
