I would love to try a pair of the “Tunari” on this years 2650 mile Pacific Crest Trail 2013 Adventure. I am a disabled hiker and normally have cheap camp shoes, but I bet they would look nice in a picture on top of Mt Whitney. Good luck to everyone else who enters.DIP

I love the Clearwater style keen’s…they really suit my style. I like to wear sandals..but I always tend to bang up my lil piggies while i’m out trackin down good snapshots with my camera . This shoe takes care of that with the brilliant design, a toe guard! from the pictures the insole looks like it would be like floatin’ on a cloud. The synch-up lace is great because lets face it who likes to bend over and retie a lace when your trekkin through the woods, you might miss somethin’! …Great lookin shoe, a guy from minn’sota could really use a pair, dontchano..

Posted by keith - 03/05/2013 07:41 PM

I like the Cascades. These look like the perfect shoe for some family hiking and waterfall exploring this summer! Plus I need a pair!

Posted by smrtrthnu - 03/05/2013 08:26 PM

Something about the Tunari is calling my name. I just need variety in my shoe life.

Posted by Cheryl Billings - 03/05/2013 08:26 PM

Delancey MJ would be my choice…I am on my feet all day and these look so stylish and yet vey comfy.

Posted by Kimber Michelle - 03/05/2013 08:32 PM

Delancy Ballerina look so comfy

Posted by jon burpee - 03/05/2013 08:35 PM

I like the sagewood

Clearwater in women’s. My kids wear keen sandals and there are none better

Posted by Rosie Lineham - 03/05/2013 08:42 PM

I love the ‘Clearwater’ …I’m disabled, living on a fixed income, and I would love to win a pair of Keen Shoes. Thank you!!

Posted by vikki P - 03/05/2013 08:44 PM

I like the women’s Clearwater. It has great style but looks like it would be so comfortable and really give me good foot support

Posted by BECKYCOLQUITT - 03/05/2013 08:44 PM

I LOVE CASCADE WOMENS SIZE 8,,I NEED NEW WATER WORK OUT SHOES AS MY FILA SKELE-TOES ARE SHOT FROM ALL THE CLORINE USED IN SENIOR CENTER THERAPHY POOL THAT I ATTEND EVERYDAY AFTER THE SENIORS ARE DONE SO THAT OUR AQUATICS EXERCISE GROUP CAN DO WATER AREOBICS,ZUMBA,WEIGHT TRAINING AND BODY BUILDING!!!

Posted by Ed Horst - 03/05/2013 08:52 PM

Cascade for the toe protection,open breathing for the feet & toes.The warm weather that we have here in SWFL makes wearing sandles a must.

Posted by Linda Hanley - 03/05/2013 09:02 PM

Clearwaters -lime green sandles. I am in terrible pain with neuropathy, athritis, fibro – and I found with Keen – it really helps with the pain ! With those sandles, I will be able to walk the dog in the summer months with good support and traction – and protection from kicking rocks on trails – thank you !

Posted by CC in Wi - 03/05/2013 09:05 PM

Clearwater, they match our canoe.

Posted by Isaac Dunigan - 03/05/2013 09:13 PM

I love the Clearwater. Looks like they would be great for kayaking, camping, hiking and so on. Love the colors and have always enjoyed putting on my keens after a long day of climbing trees.

Posted by Terri Gill - 03/05/2013 09:26 PM

I would definitely pick the Mercer Lace in Bright Green! I live in Sugar Land, TX & wear Keen trail shoes or sandals everyday! The Mercer Lace could be worn year round here in Sugar Land and look smart with jeans, capris or shorts. Due to the lighter weight, I could pop them in my carry on for a fun weekend in San Antonio or Austin. Hoping I win!!!

Posted by Rebekah Fountain - 03/05/2013 09:29 PM

Love the look of the Sagewood! It’s outdoors meets refined in looks- can wear hitting the trails or the mall.

Posted by Jason Whitaker - 03/05/2013 09:36 PM

Mercer MJ, I like the color and it appears easy to put on

Posted by Cassie Bosley - 03/05/2013 09:42 PM

do I have to pick just one? like the Cascade and Clearwater, but really love the Delancey and the Mercers… I have a shoe problem ;) hoping to get a shoe shot of all 5 of us in our Keens this summer

Posted by Deb Cohen - 03/05/2013 09:45 PM

Mercer MJ comfy and the strap is great adjustable when needed

Posted by Brian Bjorklund - 03/05/2013 09:54 PM

Check out the Clearwater shoe…classic Keen shoe and similar to what I own, but a more low-profile and lightweight design…perfect!! Looks like the ideal shoe for all my favorite outdoor activities!

Posted by Peter D - 03/05/2013 11:02 PM

Bleecker Slip-ons because I used to live on Bleecker Street and they are just about the same size as my old apartment. Cheers for the giveaway!

Posted by Grant B - 03/05/2013 11:12 PM

Cascade (women’s) for my wifey. She’s always bustin my chops for some new KEENS.

Posted by Nephré - 03/05/2013 11:54 PM

Sagewood is the perfect shoe for me to wear while riding my bicycle and picking wild white sage! Can’t wait for my size 8…..thank you!

Posted by Laura - 03/06/2013 12:16 AM

I love Keen shoes. They are the perfect shoes for summer fun. I would like the Cascade for women. I will wear them hiking, to the lake, to the beach, to the water park with the kids-all summer long and they will still look brand new because that is how good keen’s are

Posted by Gloria Mathews - 03/06/2013 07:54 AM

I have never tried on or purchased a pair of Keen shoes, but I think they would be a perfect choice for me and my lifestyle. I particularly like the Clearwater style – I frequently take care of my 2 grandchildren who are 3 and 5 years old. These shoes would enable me to chase them around outside, running through puddles, sprinkler parks, zoos and any other challenge they present to me. Whew, I need all the help I can get!!!!

Posted by Jeanne Kelly - 03/06/2013 10:58 AM

I recently purchaced a pair of keen hiking shoes, the fit is fantastic! I live in the mountains, these new sandal/shoe would be perfect for use around the lake and town after the snow ends!

Posted by Nicole Biddle - 03/06/2013 12:14 PM

I love the Women’s Clearwater in Norse Blue. I’ll be spending the summer at the American River trying to escape the heat since I’m pregnant with my fourth child. I’ll need all the help I can get to remain comfortable and stylish in the state I’m in while chasing after my three other river rats.

Posted by gene - 03/06/2013 02:53 PM

I’m diggin’ the Tunari. I walk my dog daily in all kinds of weather and terrain. This looks like a versatile pair that I should love if it feels anything like my old beat-up pair of Keens.

Posted by Dan S. - 03/06/2013 05:49 PM

I’m grooving out to the “Tunari” because it rhymes with Atari. Someday I hope to go on a Safari, and perhaps I’ll wear the Tunari. I bet these would go great with a Sari, or even drive a Ferrari. Perhaps I’ll have better luck in this contest than Mata Hari, so I’ll end this comment with I’m sorry.

Posted by tony trapani - 03/06/2013 06:28 PM

Tunari

Posted by Lisa G - 03/06/2013 08:35 PM

Heavenly ‘Haven’ even if I might be mis-behavin’ ! Would fit my clubfoot and make it feel ravin’ !!! Whoo whoo! ;)

Posted by Steve R - 03/06/2013 09:53 PM

Tunari! Would be perfect for the summer time!

Posted by katarina - 03/07/2013 12:27 AM

Mercer olive green looks like a racing snake would love to give it a bash. All the way in south africa. Shoes look awsome.

Posted by JAMES RATHBONE - 03/07/2013 08:08 AM

need a pair that fits

Posted by Jeremy Zoss - 03/07/2013 04:15 PM

I like the Tunari. Those are the same colors as my Commander Shepard costume, the main character from the Mass Effect video games. With those shoes, I could parade around in costume in public and still run away when the jerks came to beat me up!

Posted by Dave Kelly - 03/07/2013 04:45 PM

Bleecker Lace (men’s). Not only do they look professional, but the comfort that’s so carefully integrated would help any consumer/worker that has to stand up for one of those bleak 8 hour shifts.

Posted by Curtis - 03/07/2013 04:48 PM

Gargoyle Cascade because they are versatile. I can use them for water sports and casual wear.

Posted by Trish - 03/07/2013 05:22 PM

Delancy Ballerina (women’s) – because I already own nine pairs of Keens (mostly sandals and a pair of snowboots – which rock!)
Time to show off a more girlie Keen style I think…

Posted by William T - 03/07/2013 05:58 PM

The name Cascade implies flowing like water; going where the undulation of the land takes you. I liken it to the flow of my own fitness journey that started out with a home fitness program, then transforming into a group program, then to running, then to yoga. I don’t know where I’ll go next, but I don’t really have to think about it. At some point I will feel another undulation and I will just naturally follow that path.

Posted by Aly - 03/07/2013 06:19 PM

I love the Mercer MJ’s…normally, I live in my Newports but, I love having something closed toe for a relaxed hike/walk to the lake. This new lineup looks great!

Posted by Wil Colquhoun - 03/07/2013 06:22 PM

Men’s Cascade. Great colors and looks like well built shoe. I would use on the beaches of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.

Posted by Abby White - 03/07/2013 06:24 PM

I am looking for a new pair of KEENS to get married in in May since i am a hardcore KEEN junkie and i love living outside the normal traditions. I think the Mercer Ballerina (women’s) would be a great pick and would be even more amazing and special if i won them!

Posted by Erin - 03/07/2013 06:26 PM

The Cascades remind me most of my beloved Newports, which I first bought for a climb up a waterfall. Waterfall, cascade, coincidence? I think not.

Posted by sandi - 03/07/2013 06:27 PM

Cascades look nice and comfy and great for the Colorado terrain

Posted by Tim Morgan - 03/07/2013 06:27 PM

Clearwater (Mens)

Posted by jcap - 03/07/2013 06:32 PM

tunari, not a sandal guy myself

Posted by Tim Morgan - 03/07/2013 06:32 PM

The Clearwater’s seem like a great river shoe. easy in and out of Kayak with stability and slip resistance. Keen’s are amazing!

Posted by mike brown - 03/07/2013 06:37 PM

cannot beat the comfort and quality. my 7 other pairs attest to that. the cascades are what im looking for

Posted by Elizabeth - 03/07/2013 07:29 PM

i like the haven and the color green
i would wear them hiking along the streams
hope to win that would be great
thanks for the chance you guys are great!

Posted by Rick - 03/07/2013 07:31 PM

love the clearwater style mens

Posted by linda ball - 03/07/2013 08:09 PM

OK I FIRST SAW THE KEEN LINE IN CHICAGO IN 2002. I WAS THERE TO RUN THE CHICAGO MARATHON..I HAD NO EXTRA MONEY TO BUY ANYTHING IN THE EXPO HALL BUT I WALKED PAST THE KEEN BOOTH WHICH I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THEM I TURNED AROUND AND SAID IT DOESN’T COST ANYTHING TO TRY THEM ON SO I DID AND FELL IN LOVE IMMEDIATELY. I WAS WITH MY BOYFRIEND AT THE TIME WHO OWNED A SHOE STORE AND TOLD HIM HE HAD TO BRING KEENS TO BLOOMINGTON…IT HAPPENED AND NOW KEENS ARE ALL OVER THIS TOWN ON MOMS, DADS AND KIDS EVERYONE LOVES THEM. I WAS AT A SCHOOL CARNIVAL AND I WAS IN SHOCK, ME, OTHER VOLUNTEERS, THE KID PLAYING THE GAME AND THE DAD ALL HAD KEENS ON AND WE WERE ALL STRANGERS SO THERE YOU HAVE IT…LOVE..LOVE..LOVE DELANEY LACE WOULD BE SWEET ON THE DANCE FLOOR!

Posted by Jennifer - 03/07/2013 08:11 PM

The Haven looks as comfy and durable as my current Keen sandals, but with it fully enclosed I wouldn’t have to stop to empty twigs and pebbles out of my shoes repeatedly while running my dogs on the trail.

Posted by Carla - 03/07/2013 08:28 PM

These all look great, but I think the Medomak (kid’s) would be a great choice for my son. I teach his nature preschool class and these would help him explore the great outdoors, fill up the bird feeder he bought with his own money, and go on the frequently requested nature hikes!

Posted by Leo - 03/07/2013 08:30 PM

Surely digging the Tunari size 9, I have felt Keen rubber before, and these rubbers make for good terrain feedback on whatever surface you are on or in. Big fan of the lacing system, nice and tight to the foot and not bulky, less chances of my breaking another ankle on the AT. I would love to see how they handle the PCT or even Long Trail, I need new shoes, a big fan of Keen, help a broke ass hiker out! I don’t care who is wearing them, I want to be wearing them, on the trail, in the car, passed out on the plane, they all look comfy.

Posted by Eric - 03/07/2013 08:48 PM

I like the cascade

Posted by Kim - 03/07/2013 08:51 PM

I love the Haven! Looks lightweight & comfy – perfect for warmer weather trail walks when there’s too much underbrush to risk wearing my KEEN sandals, & it’s too hot for heavy hiking boots.

Posted by Jason - 03/07/2013 09:06 PM

The Tunari is cool! Covers up, but lightweight. Great styling and will go with anything. Two thumbs up!

Posted by Harold Richardson - 03/07/2013 11:42 PM

I like the cascades. Heard alot of my friends saying those shoe are very comfortable to wear. Never had one. Love to have one to wear and try it out! Please hope I get a pair. They look so awesome. I wear size 13. Hope its me to wear those awesome shoe!!!

Posted by Adam Griffith - 03/08/2013 02:33 AM

The Men’s Tunari looks mean. I need a pair of them stat!

Posted by Kyline A. Gray - 03/08/2013 10:03 AM

I would go with the Haven, I like the color purple and they would look great on my feet. I thing they would be a great asset for when I start to train for the bike team at work. We are getting ready to gear up for the summer festivals in our area and I will need something comfortable on my feet. Keen has proven through and through that it is the best made footware a person can wear. That is why own six pairs of keens already….

Posted by Lisa Beech - 03/08/2013 10:09 AM

I love the KEEN Women’s Cascade. Several years ago I fell down a flight of stairs severely injuring my left ankle. My ankle healed, but I had lingering pain and foot cramping. In spite of my injury and ankle weakness, I was determined to enjoy my trip to Yellowstone. I bought a pair of Keen sandals. They were the only pair of shoes I could find where I had both arch support and toe protection. I climbed to the summit of Mt. Washburn, wearing my sandals, walking through melting snow pack. What a thrill! That was 2 years ago. Today, age 45, I am training and running again. This summer I plan on hiking Mt Harney and climbing the Cathedral Spires in the Black Hills. Not sure, if I’ll be up to rock climbing, but I am definitely making my way up the spires. I’d love to do it again in some lightweight, low profile Keens. The toe comfort and protection helped me to rehab my ankle. I’m a fan for life. Thank you, KEEN,for helping me meet my goals. This summer I will climb to the summit of granite spires and scale to the top of this year’s personal goal.

Posted by Elaina Franklin - 03/08/2013 01:43 PM

I like the Delancy Ballerina (women’s). I play violin and often am required to wear black shoes for concerts. However, I have yet to find a pear that are both comfortable and look nice. The Delancy Ballerina in black, look likes it would be just what I need.

Posted by Danielle Dodwell - 03/08/2013 10:04 PM

Cascade looks great because…
1. They’re KEENs!
2. They’re GREEN!
3. I have plantar fascitis, it makes walking very uncomfortable. I need a great shoe with good support just to make it through the day. A lighter weight shoe that I know I already love is beyond perfect!

Posted by Wahid Kurniawan - 03/09/2013 06:40 PM

Tunari sounds great for my foot …
Why … ? because my foot feels comfort on it.

Go Green with KEEN

Posted by DIP Dad In Pain - 03/10/2013 03:01 PM

We’ll I didnt win round one……but I would love to try a pair of the “Tunari” on this years 2650 mile Pacific Crest Trail 2013 Adventure. They look like they will keep the rocks out while hiking in softer sand. I am a disabled hiker and use KEEN Oregon PCT Boots while hiking and normally have cheap camp shoes, but now KEEN offers such a lite weight shoe….I really want to try them. I bet they would look nice in a picture on top of Mt Whitney. Good luck to everyone else who enters.DIP

Posted by mc - 03/11/2013 05:34 PM

Love the fun Green Clearwater. Love my current pair but happy to try a new one. Love the colour, and if they are even lighter than my current pair of Keens, what a treat :)

Posted by Bonnie B - 03/13/2013 08:18 AM

Mercer lace women’s in green. I would rock those so hard every single day. Plus they look mighty fine for chasing down my two crazy toddler daughters.

Posted by Alisha - 03/13/2013 12:43 PM

I would pick Cascade, I really love the look! If I were chosen as a winner I would be wearing my new Cascades To visit my mum and papa in the country. The covered toe would be perfect for all the outdoor fun the country has to offer!

Posted by Murray - 03/13/2013 01:00 PM

My pick would be Clearwater. If I win I could finally say I own a pair of Keens. My fiance loves her Venice H2 sandals, its all she talks about all summer and keeps telling me how comfortable they are! If I had my own pair of Clearwater Keens I could tease her about how comfortable they are and we could sport our Keens together!

Posted by Sindy - 03/13/2013 01:15 PM

So, I am sitting here trying to come up with a whitty comment befitting of winning myself a new pair of Keens. I am usually quite a wordsmith, but find myself at a loss for ‘whit’ at the moment. I can tell you this. I love every one of my five pair of Keens. I am a geologist by academics and love to hike. I have flat feet, which is a challenge as most shoes, especially anything decent for hiking have huge arches and cause me a great deal of pain. Keens fit me to a tee. I do not have Keen sandals, as I just mentioned to my sister yesterday after she ordered a new pair, but they will come for me at some point. Instead today I would like to vote for the Keen Cascades, the men’s ones in grey and yellow, but I would like to vote for these in hope of winning them for my Dad. He is a senior, who is on a fixed income, recently had knee replacement surgery, (has flat feet, and very narrow heels-hard to fit) but LOVES his old pair of Keen sandals that I handed down to him a few years ago. He loves the toe cap, as he is always bumping into things, combined with the coolness the sandals provides to his feet. He lives in the country and every step is a hike for him. I think he would not only love brand new Keens, but can not afford them himself, so he would think winning a pair was the best thing ever. Please consider my vote for Keens for my Dad, from an already hooked Keen fan, his daughter. He is a size 9 men’s. I believe. His size has changed after several surgeries, but we can check for sure against his old ones when I win. Ahhhh! The power of positive thinking and the desire to pay it forward. Thank you for the opportunity to spread the love, literally and KEENLY.
