Great New Women’s Keen Sandals Models for 2011

New Keen Sandals Models for 2011
The Keen sandals collection has long been the best choice for water sports and summer adventuring, offering a highly versatile design which performs just as well in the water as it does on dry land.  The range has come a long way since the Newport was released back in 2003, with the brand now offering shoes for greater protection on winter walks and hikes and a model to suit all tastes and outdoor activities. However, Keen are most famous for their hybrid sandals, and this year promises even more variety with great new colour schemes, cool new designs, and improvements to the technology to keep the feet in even greater comfort.

Whilst the brand is famous for its chunky soles and beefy toe bumpers, the women’s Keen sandals collection has been evolving over the years, and now includes much slimmer models with more feminine styling, naturally without compromising the toe protection for which they are world renowned. The patented toe protection system still features in all the latest models, even in their Waimea H2 toe post sandals. Naturally with such a lightweight design, the toe bumper has had to be slimmed down, but it still keeps the toes perfectly protected, and far and above any other summer sandal brands. The shoes are sure to be big sellers this year when the winter weather finally makes way for what we are all hoping will be a beautifully warm spring.  As with the other models in the range, the Waimea H2 uses a Microban treated footbed to counter odour, a metanomical footbed for great support and comfort and polyester webbing straps which dry quickly after you come out of the water.

Taking the protection up a notch is another new addition to the Keen sandals range, which uses the popular Keen Whisper as the base, and turns it into a slide.  Whilst the heel and rear foot straps are gone, the shoes still offer a secure fit, and stay tight on the feet to avoid any flip-flopping when you walk. The zip lock elastic fastening keeps them snug on the feet, with the same high traction sole as the original Whisper for great grip on the beach and river banks.

If you like the fit of the original Whisper, but want fewer tan lines this summer, then the Keen Venice H2 will be right up your street. The latest incarnation of the popular Venice sandal in Orion Blue or Striking Purple offers a funky design which gives a sterling performance over the full range of terrain. Great for the beach, brilliant for the boardwalk, and terrific on the trail, it is one of the most versatile styles, in an incredibly versatile range.

With these excellent new models, spring and summer adventures are going to be a lot more comfortable, and you’ll be able to take on any outdoor activities with maximum style. What’s more, if you do get filthy, you can just run the shoes through the washing machine and they’ll look just as good as they day you bought them. After all, you don’t want to be spending lazy summer days cleaning the great outdoors from your shoes.
