KEEN Summer Sandals Make a Splash with Kids
With styles for every age, KEEN is an active sandal resource for kids
Portland, OR – Aug., 1 2014 – Known for durable and playful footwear for kids, KEEN demonstrates its sandal expertise with several new styles for Spring 2015. The new offering includes flexible sandals for early-walking toddlers, new sporty and dressed up sandal options for girls, and a new superlight sandal for kids of all ages.
The girly Juliet (MSRP $55) features colorful leather uppers infused with sparkle. On the flipside, the Harper (MSRP $50) is a water-friendly style for girls who aren’t afraid to get their feet wet. Two points of adjustability on both sandals makes for on and off ease, while non-marking rubber outsoles provide traction for games of tag.
The Riley (MSRP $45) sandal offers toddlers room to wiggle their toes as they stretch their wobbly legs. A new, ultra-flexible outsole is ideal for early walkers and two points of adjustability offers superior fit. The style comes in a fun mix of material and colors.
And a style for kids of every age, KEEN debuts the Rio (MSRP $40) at a price point every parent will like. This ultra lightweight, technical sandal provides sure-footing with a non-marking rubber outsole and a flexible upper with cutouts for breathability. Rubber pads on the outsole add increased traction on the jungle gym while the bright and colorful prints and patterns add a dimension of fun and flair.
“We know kids tend to live in their sandals all summer long” says Erin Simons product line manager for KEEN Kids. “KEEN is already known as the sandal resource for kid’s summer fun, this season we used that sandal expertise to create styles that look great and are ready for any adventure.”
