Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) June 8, 2010
KEEN Shoes and Onlineshoes.com are combining forces to put the focus on gearing up for summer fun and living KEEN's HybridLife™ to its fullest. Don't miss the chance to enter the contest to win a free pair of KEENs!
Get acquainted with the extended KEEN family by checking out the latest styles of KEEN shoes, KEEN sandals, KEEN boots plus handbags, totes, backpacks and travel bags for men, women and kids of all ages. Eco-conscious shoppers are devoted to the green-friendly KEEN Harvest Collection of bags and footwear, crafted from repurposed materials. And don't forget KEEN socks, anatomically designed with a left and right sock in each pair for a superior, foot-hugging fit. (Read on for further details about KEEN, Onlineshoes.com and the contest.)
Based in Portland, Oregon, the story of KEEN shoes began in 2003 when Martin Keen and Rory Fuerst set out to create a water-friendly style offering the support and protection of a shoe combined with the freedom and comfort of a sandal. Available for men, women and children of all ages in a wide range of colors, the popular KEEN Newport H2 sandal is a current version of that first, innovative boating sandal, featuring KEEN's signature, patented protective toe bumper.
KEEN's product offerings have expanded to include active walking, cycling and hiking footwear, casual, urban styles, cold-weather boots and accessories, all designed with comfort and performance in mind. KEEN footwear collections include Waterfront, Market St., Blvd, Trailhead and the latest addition, Pedal (cycling shoes). A warm-weather favorite from the Blvd collection, the retro sneaker-inspired Coronado Sandal features a recycled polyurethane and cork footbed and canvas upper.
The KEEN company also emphasizes corporate social responsibility: KEEN donated their advertising budget to Asian Tsunami relief efforts in 2005, which became the KEEN Foundation and later evolved into their HybridLife™ philosophy ('Create. Play. Care.'). They have partnered with numerous national and global earth- and eco-conscious organizations dedicated to improving the planet, including The Conservation Alliance, The Forest Park Conservancy and Leave No Trace. Every year, KEEN and Onlineshoes.com employees join forces to clean up a public park in the Seattle area.
This devotion to being environmentally friendly has translated to their footwear as well, such as the popular Harvest Mary Jane. Hand woven from discarded rice bags, each pair of this repurposed KEEN shoe style is unique. The entire Harvest Collection has been embraced by consumers dedicated to walking an earth-friendly path.
