Keen announced, “women will have more choices, while digital nomads, reflecting today’s new workforce, have a wider selection of styles that easily transition from work to play” in its Fall 2022 collection. The line also “reinforces Keen’s commitment to design and manufacture footwear without perfluorochemicals (PFCs), known as ‘forever chemicals.'”

The collection will be available at retail in August 2022.

“We’re living in disruptive and challenging times, and getting outside together has never been more important,” said Erik Burbank, VP KeenEffect. “Getting outside isn’t just fun; it’s physically and mentally good for us whether hiking in the Tetons, walking the Highline in New York or volunteering to maintain local parks and trails. We’re welcoming more people outside by marrying Keen’s ‘out of box’ comfort with performance innovations like Keen.Bellows Flex Technology while also expanding our sustainability initiatives. Our focus has always been making shoes to make a difference, from creating a lighter footprint on the planet to making outside more accessible to all.”

For those trying outdoor activities for the first time, Keen’s Circadia for men and women is available in three styles with “approachable pricing.”

The collection features environmentally friendly leather and the brand’s LuftCore technology, “ensuring every step is cushioned by micro air pockets in the outsole for incredible lightness and all-day rebound while reducing the use of toxic solvent-based glues.”

The Circadia Mid WP is waterproof without using toxic per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and has eco-friendly
anti-odor protection.

The insulated Circadia Mid Polar is best for winter hiking while the Circadia Vent has a performance mesh upper and is vented for air circulation.

All Circadia models feature the brand’s All-Terrain outsole.

For women, Keen introduces the Terradora Flex, a hybrid hiking boot and sneaker. Featuring Keen.Bellows Flex technology, the style requires less energy to bend for ease of movement. It also has a grippier and more aggressive sole fused to the upper without toxic glues or solvents. Includes an eco anti-odor insole, lightweight air-injected Luftcell midsole and a stiffer outsole.

For the “digital nomad working and playing on the move,” Keen will debut its Mosey Collection for men and women with natural components, including cork.

The Mosey Felt is made with a ReWooly felt upper using a “50 percent recycled Italian wool blend and an eco anti-odor footbed.” And the leather is “environmentally preferred” with a sustainable finish.
