KEEN Impact

Making a KEEN Effect Since 2003

Every KEEN boot, sandal, and sneaker you buy has a positive effect, funding organizations to protect the planet and making the outside and trades more accessible to all.
See our latest Impact Report.

‘Forever Chemical’ Free!

We want forever shoes, not “forever chemicals." So we gave PFAS the boot.

For People

We help fund organizations making the outside and trades more accessible.
