Keen began by asking a simple design question: Can a sandal protect the toes? The answer was yes. The answer was the Newport. This one radical departure for sandals inspired the overriding Keen philosophy of hybrid innovation, of striving to create new possibilities in everything they do, pushing themselves to discover and implement original ideas in their products and challenging themselves to consider each choice they make. As Keen has grown, the promise to continue seeking product solutions for life's everyday needs carries on. Designing shoes for your HybridLife and incorporating processes that reduce their impact on the places you play.
Keen products are designed with play in mind. From mountains to deserts to city streets the Keen playground is anyplace without a ceiling. When Keen first started in 2003 they made a promise to themselves. If the little shoe with a big toe bumper ever caught on, things would be done differently—they had the chance to act on that inspiration quickly.
With only a year of business, Keen already had a history of supporting good causes. Since then, they’ve partnered with non-profit organizations around the world to help turn ideals into actions. From getting youth into the outdoors, to protecting land for its environmental and recreational value, to giving bikes to kids in need, they stand beside their partners, actively working for change instead of hoping for it from the sidelines.
