Best Of The Best... 'Top Gear' Of The Year

Sandal Slim-Down — The biggest line introduction in its 10-year history, last spring KEEN launched CNX. See the original KEEN Newport sandal from 2003 (on left below) and the new Cascade CNX sandal, launched last spring, to get a visual of how the line changed the look and feel of some of the company’s designs.

We tested a half-dozen CNX shoes over the year and were happy with the lighter, more flexible KEENs on our feet. In all, KEEN introduced 20 CNX shoes, including sandals, crossover, kids, and even leather “dressy” shoes for men and women. (Go here for our first look post on CNX by KEEN on GearJunkie last spring.)
