A wise person once said, "There are two things well worth investing in over
the course of one's lifetime — a comfortable bed and a good pair of shoes."
After 2003, that wise individual, or any other person for that matter, likely
came across the Portland-based all-American shoe manufacturer known as Keen
in the pursuit of such worthy footwear. Chances are too, that that said wise
individual's search ended right there.
With thousands of retail locations across the United States and worldwide distribution
of its products, Keen has proven to be a company that embraces the balance of
work, play and the act of giving back. Keen describes this mantra for living
as HybridLife and supports that striking emphasis with a product line that includes
design footwear, bags and socks engineered to enhance all activities under the
sun. From the Keen Emerald City Sandal for women to the Gorge Boot for men and
even the Coronado High Top Canvas Shoe for kids - Keen has everything to fulfill
all of the feet's desires.
With its first developed shoe line in 2003, Keen sought to create a sandal
that also protected the toes in a way that wasn't suffocating. Today, the Keen
Venice H2 Sandal embodies that refined idea and gives the diverse adventurer
a range of activities to undertake with the Venice H2 on foot. Whether that
necessitates the multi-directional lugs with razor sipping to maintain unprecedented
traction on the deck of a slippery sail boat or a secured bungee fit for transitioning
from boulder hopping to mucking about at stream crossings or hiking in the woods — the Keen Venice
H2 Sandal has got you covered.
More still, Keen continues to expand its product line with substantial advancements
that take style and utility to a whole new level throughout out all the facets
of life. From industrial boots that combines dual-density midsoles with steel
toe protection to the lazy-day boulevard shoes like that of the Maderas Slip-on
and even the Gypsum Waterproof shoes that can take you beyond the road's end
- Keen knows how to show your toes a good time.
In taking that idea a step further, Keen offers even more cushion for your comfort
by the use of it's inviting line of socks. Whether you are a kid, woman or man;
Keen offers various kinds of coziness in the form of its socks that fit into
the casual lifestyle and keep up with your active endeavors with performance
you can rely on. Any backpacker could relate to you the importance of socks,
especially on mile eight of a single day's trek. To avoid that kind of blistering
engagement, Keens Olympus Medium Crew socks bestow upon its wearer that crucial
bit of abrasion-resistance so mile nine can be taken on with a pep in your step.
With Keen footwear covering every aspect of life's engagements, Keen socks cushioning
the experience of it, and Keen bags keeping all the little things in check —
the HybridLife mantra Keen stands by is a pair of shoes worth stepping into
to experience. Promising to care for one another and the world around, Keen
offers a diverse line of gear to enjoy the world around just as much. It just
takes one step in front of the other and with anything Keen, good luck slowing
