Spring Preview: Keen

Keen is taking its sandal business to a whole new place for spring ’11. Founded on the strength of its iconic Newport sandal, the Portland, Ore.-based outdoor firm has expanded to include men’s and women’s leather casual versions; strappy, feminine styles; and closed-up but water-friendly performance shoes that build on the Newport’s heritage. Retailing for $30 for flip-flops to $90 for performance and leather styles, the collection will deliver in early 2011 to outdoor shops and family independents.
