Following the debut of their Innate travel shoe in Spring 19, Keen has joined forces with travel apparel brand Sherpa Adventure Gear to launch Keen Innate x Sherpa for autumn/winter 2019.
With both brands sharing an affinity to take action, give back and create a better future for communities in a meaningful and immediate way, values are woven into the soul of this unique collaboration, with €15 being donated from the sale of every shoe to charity Room to Read®. Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education.
The proceeds of the sale of approximately three pairs of Keen Innate x Sherpa Adventure Gear shoes will enable one child to read and write for a year and the sales of 25 pairs will fund a child to be supported through secondary school for an entire year. The brands are hoping to reach the goal of teaching 1,000 children to read and write for one year.
Featuring a distinctive endless knot embossed into the upper and subtle signature Nepalese flag detail to the heel loop, this stylish boot pays homage to the Sherpa climbers and unsung heroes of the Himalayas. Constructed in premium, environmentally preferred Better Leather from a Leather Working Group (LWG) tannery, a PFC-free Durable Water Repellent system and featuring Eco Odor Control, the Keen Innate x Sherpa Adventure Gear looks good, feels good and does good.
The KeenInnate x Sherpa Adventure Gear will be available from selected retail partners across Europe from late summer 2019 priced at £140.
