KEEN is an American footwear and accessories brand founded by Martin Keen and Rory Fuerst in 2003. KEEN is based in Portland Oregon, a city known for bridges, bicycles, nature and forests. KEEN sees this city as the perfect backdrop for innovations and pioneering culture.
The Newport sandal was the first shoe to be released, the sandal was born out of the question 'could a sandal protect the toes?'. The now-iconic sandal has created adventures, connected communities and inspired people of all ages, genders, races and abilities to get outside. Since the start of KEEN, the brand has made sure to do its part to support the earth and its environment. They are giving back and doing the right thing for the world. At Baskèts, we value quality and authenticity. A brand like KEEN fits perfectly within our brand package.
