Founded in 2003 by Martin Keen, Cali-born brand Keen Footwear filled a gap in the market with their sandal shoe hybrids. They were created by Martin who loved competitive sailing in his downtime, after he noticed that classic sandals weren't suitable on board as they didn't provide enough protection or grip underfoot. His first silhouette, the Newport, was released in line with the launch of the brand and became a huge success. Currently, styles such as the Keen Uneek Sandals dominate the market thanks to their timeless functionality and casual gorp-core aesthetic. Shop Keen Footwear online at Aphrodite now.
