In 2003, the first KEEN shoes were invented to answer the unasked question, "Can a sandal protect your toes?" and they featured a signature thick black toe bumper. KEEN found a ready market in sailing and other outdoor and water activities, and now offers products for many outdoor activities as well as lifestyle shoes. We create products with play in mind. We are committed to putting our values in motion. From the products we make, to the actions we take, we inspire ourselves and others to live and work monumental every day.
