Keen is a ver.Â environmentally conscience company that started out making a closed toe sandal that was safer for cyclists to wear..Â They’ve since expanded into bags and other forms of cycling-safe sandals..Â Their newest model is the Commuter.
The Keen company has a great back story and they do a lot of recycling and re-harvesting of rubber, aluminum and other bits to make their products..Â I encourage you to read more here.
The Keen Commuter is a closed toe sandal that has a comfortable sole and is designed to wear around all day..Â It fits any SPD compatible clipless pedal system and it keeps the cleat tucked into the sole so you won’t be clicking around like you’re in heels..Â MSRP: $115
The Keen Springwater is their commuter shoe that has three velcro straps to close and also has the same comfortable, SPD compatible sole..Â MSRP: $130
Their sandals are also pretty rad and the toe cover looks pretty rad..Â The men’s version use recycled bike inner tubes and women’s use recycled rice bags..Â They aren’t SPD compatible, but for folks like me that like to run flats, I can’t imagine a better set of sandals to commute on..Â MSRP: forgot to ask…
Another of the new products from Keen is their Newport pack..Â It has lot’s of places for storage including laptop sleeve, hydration bladder slot and then plenty of pockets here and there for your little stuff..Â The outer shell will easily hold a helmet, pair of shoes, etc..Â There’s also a waist strap that is hidden and tucked away yet easily accessible when you need it..Â MSRP: $100
