Back-to-school with KEEN FOOTWEAR...

One thing I always remember about going back-to-school shopping is getting new footwear.  It's a long school year and having great shoes whether you are at school or not is very important as a kid.  Kids are so hard on shoes and buying a quality pair that lasts just makes sense.  

That's why today I am excited to introduce you all to KEEN Footwear.

I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with KEEN, but if you are not we are excited to introduce them to you and share this review with you!  Here is a little more about the company...

Founded in 2003 with the launch of the Newport Sandal known for its patented toe protection technology, KEEN creates innovative and comfortable products that transition seamlessly from work to play, calling it the HybridLife.

  HybridLife is the KEEN mantra, their commitment to create solutions in their product and business practices, to design footwear, bags and socks that enable you to play anyplace without a ceiling; and their promise to care for each other and the world around us. KEEN invites you to join them in tossing on a pair of KEEN shoes, socks or a bag and to diving head first into living a HybridLife.

You will be happy to know that KEEN shoes are made right here in the USA...

KEEN recently allowed us to choose a pair of children's shoes to review for this back-to-school feature and we couldn't have been more excited.  We had heard of KEEN footwear before, but had never owned a pair before now.  

 After browsing all of the children's styles we decided on the Boy's Clayton WP in the color Shitake/Tawny Olive for our 1st grader, Jace.  

The Clayton WP is one of KEEN's newest styles.  Ready for off-roading it's great for muddy forest trails or frozen fields. Its dual-climate, non-marking outsole has aggressive lugs for traction on any surface. It features waterproof leather and textile upper with a waterproof, breathable membrane that keeps little feet safe and dry.  

Jace loves his new shoes and says they are very comfortable. We couldn't be more excited about the quality and know he will get lots of use out of these this winter.  He loves to be outside and where we live it is very "outdoorsie" with fields, woods etc...  we can now let him explore, knowing his feet will be very well protected. 

The Clayton WP retails for $70 and is available in both boys and girls styles and several different color combos: Shitake/Tawny Olive (as shown), Slate Black/Chili Pepper, Black/Yellow and Dark Shadlow/Purple Heart.


KEEN offers styles for MEN

and of course Children!

  1. 90% individuals would agree - The past emotions attached with the school need to be revised along with all global market to show the whole shining of the current dreams. To talk about the shoes, these look something different ones and evergreen styles that are simply nothing but eye catching at first sight.
