The creation of Keen footwear for men, women, and children first stemmed from a design challenge: Can a sandal protect the toes? Keen rose to the occasion, eventually creating an entire line of footwear with comfort and durability in mind. Redefining what a sandal can do, Keen.com also redefines the outdoors as anywhere without a ceiling. Keen sells shoes to keep up with more active lifestyles. Keen also calls its consumers to be more aware of how to be part of a bigger community.
