Keen for Spring
Keen has you covered as you transition from the heavy trappings of winter footwear to the carefree days that lay ahead. Keen has launched a new line of footwear known as CNX, which are ultra lightweight. Since the weather turned warmer recently I have been sporting a pair of the Keen Mercer Mary Jane, which weigh in at just over 7.5 ounces. These adorable flats offer all the styling of a traditional mary jane flat, with the toe protection and arch support that we have come to expect from Keen. This past Saturday, my Mercer Mary Janes kept me feet feeling and looking good on an inshore fishing trip, to a dockside lunch and then on to running errands for that evening’s dinner party. I love the fit and style of these flats. If you are looking for the perfect pair of shoes to pair with shorts, skits and other warm weather outfits, look no further than the Keen Mercer Mary Jane CNX. They come in eye catching colors.MSRP $90.00.My other go-to shoe for the warmer days is the Keen Maderas Oxford. Think Ked’s but grown up, more stylish, and much more comfortable. The Maderas Oxford is a canvas shoe with a white rubber sole that offers a touch of hipster style. The sole is perfect if you need a shoe that does not scuff. They provide the expected Keen toe protection and a surprisingly comfortable fit. They also pair wonderfully with a pair of jeans for a day of brewery tours or festival going. The Maderas Oxford fits true to size and weighs in at under 11 ounces. They are available in six colors, from bright to neutral.MSRP $60.00.
