Keen makes some of the best and most affordable shoes around. Outside contributor Jakob Schiller has outfitted both of his kids in the Chandler shoe, and Gear Guy Joe Jackson considers the Targhee Vent to be the best hiking boot for the money. Read on for five shoes we think are worth buying, or check out everything that is currently on sale.
Women’s Elsa Sneaker ($60; 20 percent off)
These classic canvas sneakers go with nearly anything in your closet, from jeans to your favorite summer dress. The shoes are 100 percent vegan and have a nonmarking rubber outsole.
Men’s Durand Waterproof Mid Boot ($160; 12 percent off)
This solid, waterproof hiking boot is built to last. The height of the boot provides more ankle support than a traditional hiking shoe, and the hefty cushioning in the midsole means it’s super comfortable on long hikes.
Big Kids’ Newport H2 Sandal ($44; 12 percent off)
Perfect for getting in and out of the water, this kids’ sandal has a nonmarking rubber outsole to protect your floors from rambunctious little ones. The hook and loop closure system across the top of the foot allows kids to easily adjust the sandals on their own when needed.
Men’s Uneek Sandal ($80; 20 percent off)
These simple sandals are made from two strands of cord and a rubber sole. A soft midsole easily molds to your foot shape, while the sticky rubber outsole lets you walk with confidence over rocks and water.
Women’s Rose Sandal ($73; 20 percent off)
The Rose sandal looks great but can also handle light adventure, thanks to the front toe bumper for extra protection from rocks and sticks.
