Keen Footwear Made in the USA

Keen Made in the USA(video). Keen, a maker of shoes, boots and sandals since 2003, has started bringing back making some of their footwear back in the United States., since 2010. Originally developed by Martin Keen and Rory Fuerst in Alameda, California, Keen moved to Portland, Oregon in 2006, where they still reside.

Keen now has four different lines of USA made footwear: Nopo, which are casual and waterproof (in boot and shoes) ; the Ontario line shoe (leather and water-resistant); Barkley line with Nubuck leather as a shoe, boot or slip-on; and the Glisan Sandals.

Keen Ontario shoes are still available, but I believe they have discontinued the boots in this line. The Glisan sandals are the only sandals made by Keen in the United States.

The latest line of American made footwear introduced by Keen is Barkley which made with Nubuck leather.

These lines of boots and sandals are all made in their factory in Portland, Oregon. Do not forget that Keen makes socks made in America in many various patterns.
