Here at KEEN, adventure is our thing. We love climbing mountains and swimming in lakes, but we also love adventures of the closer-to-home variety. Trekking to the coffee shop. Meeting friends at the pub. Exploring new cities. Chasing around our kids at the park. Our KEEN casual shoes for men and women are your multitasking, wear-them-anywhere, adventure shoes, with all the style and comfort that daily life requires. Not sure which pair is right for your life? Read on to find the statement that best matches your needs.
“I’m looking for men’s sandals that are breezy enough for a warm day and nice enough to wear to dinner.”
If you want one pair of sandals that can double down on comfort and good looks, you’ve found it in the men’s UNEEK sandals. These hybrid trainer sandals have a foot-hugging, cord upper that delivers 24/7 comfort no matter how long you sightsee (goodbye, museum-induced foot fatigue) and a breathable upper that keeps things airy on balmy days. When you’re getting dressed for a night out, their casual style always makes the cut. KEEN fans have worn their UNEEKs when exploring Portland, Oregon, by bike; eating ramen in Tokyo; and even building surfboards in the Netherlands!
“These sandals rock! Perfect fit out of the box. Wore them to a street fair. Spent four hours on my feet in these things with zero problems. I’m buying more!” – Pete
KEEN tip: Take your UNEEKs along when you travel to save on suitcase space. Their minimalist design packs down flat, which leaves extra room for any souvenirs you pick up along the way.
“I’m looking for women’s sandals that let me walk all day in comfort.”
Farmer’s market-approved and city-ready, our women’s UNEEK sandals will let you tread happily from point A to point B to wherever your day leads you (karaoke, anyone?). Their innovative two-cord design adapts to the shape of your foot to keep you moving in comfort, no matter how many steps you take in a day. Plus, they offer a winning combo of toe coverage and ventilation. You probably guessed it from the name, but these hybrid trainer sandals have a unique look that often leads to compliments.
“I love my new KEENs! They are so comfortable, they feel like slippers! I get so many compliments on them also. True-to-size and very easy to adjust the laces for [a] perfect fit. I'm thinking of getting a different colour pair.” – Maru
KEEN tip: Check out our UNEEK collaborations with brands like Topo Designs and Jerry Garcia. In addition to striking collaborations, these sandals come in a whole lot of colours so you can find the one that fits your personality.
Women’s Everyday Sandals
“I just want one pair of women’s sandals that I can wear absolutely everywhere.”
Leave them by the door. Wear them everywhere. Get a little obsessive. Our women’s Elle sandals are so darn versatile, there’s never a reason not to wear them. Weekend brunch? Yup. Day by the river? Definitely. Exploring a new city? For sure. They look great with shorts and sundresses, and they feel just as comfortable on dirt paths as on city sidewalks. Basically, our Elle sandals are the only sandals you need all summer. They ride on plush cushioning that’s super-duper lightweight, and their straps stretch to fit the shape of your foot. Oh, and they come in lots of colours. Find classic neutrals or vibrant hues to match your personal style.
“I spent last summer in these sandals and they still look great. I have fussy feet that need some cushioning in the sole, but not too much, and these hit the perfect balance. The elastic has just enough give. The style works with everything, so it’s perfect for travel. It even cleans up in the washing machine if needed. This is the perfect casual sandal and I’m back for another colour!” – Christine
Wear Anywhere Men’s Trainers
“I’m looking for men’s everyday trainers that are as rugged as my hiking boots.”
However you spend time outside, the men’s Jasper shoes are here for it. We designed these trainers to combine the climbing-inspired durability of an approach shoe with style you can wear to the coffee shop. So, go ahead, lace up the rope-like laces, and trek into the city. Rugged suede holds up to scuffs and scrapes as you hop curbs and cruise down the sidewalks. Their cushy footbed feels good from your morning bike commute to that afternoon barbecue with friends.
“They are light and fit my feet beautifully. Even after wearing them for many hours, they are still very comfortable. I walk a lot, and when I do so wearing my Jaspers, I walk confidently and feel safe and balanced. These are easily one of the most comfortable pairs of footwear I have ever owned. One final note: the build quality of these Jaspers is outstanding, from the quality of the materials to the way they are constructed — they are first rate.” – Lenn
Kids’ Everyday Trainers
“My kid needs everyday trainers that also protect their feet.”
If your little adventurer only knows one speed (fast) and seems to have an endless amount of energy, the kids’ Speed Hound shoes are the ones you’ll want to strap to their feet. Kids will love the easy-to-slip-on design that gets them out the door fast, plus the fun colours and soft feel. Parents can get some peace of mind knowing that KEEN’s protective toe bumper extends all the way to the heel to keep little feet safe. Skating, scooting, biking, or zooming through the day, your little speed hound is set for adventures big and small.
“Great quality shoes — fit my son really well, and he actually doesn't fight me putting them on (which is a HUGE win for our house!!!). Really happy with these and definitely recommend!” – Ali
Kids’ Durable Shoes
“My kiddo needs durable shoes that can hold up to non-stop play.”
Playground. Bike ride. Backyard. The kids' Knotch Hollow shoes are made to keep up with all the action. They have a grippy rubber sole; a toe bumper that protects little feet if they get stepped on during tag; plus a lightweight, flexible feel for all-day play. Getting out the door takes about 30 seconds, thanks to an easy-to-slip-on design. Parents, you’ll also be happy to hear that these shoes are machine-washable.
“My daughter is really hard on shoes. The last pair I spent a good amount on, she blew through in less than six months. I wanted one that had a heavy-duty toe because she is tough on that part. These shoes are amazing. We have only had them a couple weeks, but she loves them. Easy to put on, comfortable, and easy to clean. These look like they will last a long time!” – Melisa
