Our story starts in Portland, Oregon, dreaming up designs, rolling up our sleeves and working with our hands and hearts. We partnered with photographer, writer and do-er James Joiner to explore the DIY spirit of American industry—traveling around America to meet the artists, innovators, craftspeople and creators who are out there sparking inspiration every day.

What does "American Built" mean?

It means KEEN is proud to be a part of bringing footwear manufacturing back to the USA in one of America’s most modern factories. We understand that buying American products and supporting the American economy is important to many of our customers. We gather the finest materials from around the world and perform the final and most critical steps of assembly here in Portland. We are not making these products 100% from scratch in America, but we are using our current resources to focus on delivering the most innovative, high quality products we can.

What does "Using the Finest Materials from Around the World" mean?

KEEN is a global manufacturer and distributor of lifestyle and performance footwear. We currently manufacture in Europe, Asia, and North America. Our products are built with materials and components from all over the globe.

How many products is KEEN building in the Portland factory?

We are now producing more than 20 styles at our Portland factory. The quantity and range of our local production will continue to increase dramatically over the next few seasons.
