KEEN Debuts Women’s Leather Summer Sandals for Work and Play

Portland, OR – July 22, 2014 – Meandering city strolls, winding country walks and picnic lunch excursions all call for footwear with both style and comfort. The KEEN Spring/Summer 2015 casual collection is ready for boardwalk, sidewalk, and any place without a ceiling.


“If there’s something women can agree on, it’s the importance of a solid wedge heel. A playful heel that offers comfort and stability is a staple of every wardrobe,” says Johanna Koeberle, Senior Merchandise Manager at KEEN. “As the sandal resource, KEEN is bringing feminine, colorful styles for summer city adventures.”

This season, KEEN elevates its women’s casual collection, quite literally, with a line of comfort wedges for work and play. The midsole and outsole of each wedge is created from one PU component, providing hours of comfort. The KEEN Victoria Sandal ($110) features a strappy, full-grain leather upper, a soft pigskin lining and forefoot and heel foam pods for added comfort.

The City of Palms sandal collection brings comfort and style to city streets for Spring 15. The City of Palms Sandal ($95), City of Palms Posted ($95) and City of Palms Slide ($85) all feature adjustable full-grain leather uppers, leather lining with burnished palm details and a non-marking rubber outsole for traction and grip.
