Keen Uneek 8mm Scoops Gold Award
The folk over at Keen footwear have updated the Uneek shoe for Spring/Summer 2016 – the new version features an 8mm flat cord, making them even more comfortable, and the new cord opens-up the possibilities for new colour combinations – including solids and stripes to camo-colored cord. The price has also come down a smidge and the RRP of the new versions is £80.
This continued innovation has earned them a much coveted much coveted ‘Gold Award’ at last weeks OutDoor Trade Fair, held in Friedrichshafen. The OutDoor Industry Awards are internationally recognised design awards, given-out to only the most innovative, trend-setting products and ideas – this year the hybrid manufacturer were the only footwear brand to be honoured with this globally recognised distinction – so not something to be sniffed at!
“Creating a shoe as unconventional as Uneek represents our irreverent way of thinking when it comes to design and comfort, while keeping true to the hybrid versatility in our DNA,” said Rory Fuerst, Jr, Keen innovation program lead. “We wanted to create a truly new fit experience and are delighted that the hard work of all of the production, design and development team has been recognised by such an important accolade as the Gold Award”.
