I’ve come to realize that there are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who wear and love Keens, those who covet Keens in a way that Moses would greatly disapprove of, and those who’ve never heard of them.
So for those of you in category 3, here’s a rundown of why I love Keen to encourage you to join categories 1 or 2. If you still need convincing after reading this, visit their new website and I’m sure you’ll be hooked.
1. They’re environmentally and socially responsible. Much of their products are made from reused or recycled material. They use environmentally friendly manufacturing processes, give back to the community, and are working through a Fair Labor certification process. There are so many companies who have jumped on this bandwagon half-heartedly but I get the impression that Keen really means to make a difference in the industry and the world. Their company was founded on these principles 5 years ago and they keep taking their commitment to the next level.
2. They’re based in the Northwest so we’re neighbors and likely soon to be BFFs.
3. Their design is smart and their shoes are well-made, rugged and durable.
4. Handbags. You just have to look. Trust me.
5. Everything they make is gorgeous.
Now you’re asking yourself, “Why is Kathryn giving me a big fat advertisement for Keen?” Firstly because I like em so darn much and secondly because they want to give one of you a Christmas present. An awesome Christmas present, a present of which I am totally jealous in a hypocritical I-enabled-this-so-why-am-I-freaking-out-with-envy sort of way.
Head over to the site and look through everything. May I suggest the Ridgelines, Betty Boots, Palermo Boots or Palermo MJs?
How about a pair of classic Newports or Wear Around MJs?
And let’s face it. If it were me, I’d spend a good long time checking out their laptop bags and handbags. I’ve particularly got my eye on the Oswego and the Betty bag. The day packs are also delicious but I’d feel like I’d end up sharing them with my family and honestly, who wants that?
So yes. Go to the site. Pick out something you can’t live without and come back here and tell me what it is in the comments section of this post. Next Sunday night I will choose one random winner to rule them all who will receive a coupon code good for one free item of your choice from the Keen website. That’s right ladies and you 3 gentlemen. The winner gets to pick any one thing you want. Squeee! I’m so excited.
Here’s the bonus. If you post about the contest on your own site with a link back to this page, then come back here leaving a second comment with a link to your post, you’ll be entered twice.
But wait. There’s more. When the contest ends, I have a coupon code for everyone else to get free shipping on anything you order from the site.
So everyone wins. And the peasants rejoice. Now go. Window shop. Come back and report your findings.

The Palermo MJ in black spoke to me. They said that they want to live on my feet.
Shannon Armitage says
Holy Sweden, I like those Stockholms!
All Adither says
MMM, the Betty Bag in Nile-Iguana. Rawr.
Wasatch Crest WP, Targee II, Arroyo II, San Sebastian, Laguna. Do I have to pick just one?
Definitely Palermo MJ.
Wow! Really neat styles. Since I need new boots, I say either the Chamonix boot or the Stockholm boot.
…And I just looked again and discovered the Winthrop Boot. Decisions, decisions!
wow, didn’t even know they did bags, too.
i liked those chamonix boots, kewwwwwllllll!
An Ordinary Mom says
The Wear Around Mary Jane … cute!
I luuurve the Sienna Ballerina in Port Royale. So gorgeous!
Kate the Great says
I like the Winthrop boot. But I don’t dare poke my head in longer than one drool-worthy thing. It’s just too good to be true.
I’m loving the Charleston Mary Janes. I’ve been looking for some new shoes, and this company is fabulous!
I love the wear around MJ 🙂 I’ve never tried Keen’s but am an avid-shoe-aholic so I’d love to try them out!
Cori (from church)
oooh here is the link I put on my blog…I want these shoes 🙂
Amy @ Experience Imagination says
I’d get the Richmond Mid boots to see me through the winter. I like the ladies’ Napa Boot, too, but they don’t seem to offer wide widths.
mother of the wild boys says
I love all the Mary Janes…I guess if I have to choose….the Palmero MJs! No, the Charleston MJs! Oh man, I can’t choose. 🙂
Wow, wow wow!!! I love the Saratoga II clog !
Gina M. says
Wow! This is the first I have ever heard of Keen and I love them! I especially like their MJ’s, way, way cute!
Emily G. says
I am one of the wear and love type. Keens are awesome!! And I am loving the Wear Around MJs. Can they be mine?
I have coveted the SIENNA BALLERINA’s for quite a while now. I really do need to just break down and buy them already.
I love the MJs, but I really need a cute laptop bag too. It would/will be a hard choice! 😉
i love the charleston mary janes. and the winthrop boots. and amsterdam.
i absolutely love my keens. they are my favorite shoes. def want another pair!!!! great giveaway:-)
Well this is hard. How am I supposed to choose between being propelled to the fringe of nature and letting my cold weather excitement spill over? I ask you. It’s a tough choice, but I think I may have to book my next vacation in the place where fun, freedom and fashion converge.
I’ve never encountered an online store where the descriptions are so fun to read. Do they have a blog?
Lori O. says
I need a new bag and think I would have to go with the Alameda 15.
I love the Betty Bag – in the brown.
Ohhh – that would look nice under the tree.
sarah k. says
Oh Kathryn, I desperately want those Winthrop boots. And the Palermos are a close second. I will tell you why I deserve to be the winner, so you can channel me during your random choosing: I am terrified of the winter. I’ve been buying up wool sweaters and corduroys from the thrift stores, and asking all the parents and in-laws for silk long johns and wool socks, since those things are apparently desirable enough that people never give them to the thrift stores. I’ve had the same winter shoes for 6 years now, and the faux fur lining is worn right through at the heel and the toes. Because I wear them in the house and out, all winter long. I have some crazy hypersensitivity to cold (somebody suggested the other day that it might be hypothyroidism, which, coincidentally, would explain the depression and panic attacks).
Did you shed a tear for me yet? Should I go on? I’ll throw in the unrelated fact that I gave myself a lye burn the other day while making soap that didn’t turn out.
The Daring One says
Many many tears have I shed for you. I hope you don’t freeze man. We should talk about that other stuff. Similarities abound.
You are so making me break the covet commandment right now. It was too hard chooseing. I’m going to pick the Men’s Ridgeline for my teenage son. And then I’m going to go right ahead and keep breaking that commandment because I want some too. But it would be an awesome Christmas present for my boy.
I will post a link to your contest on my blog sometime today.
Most Awesome give-away.
The Daring One says
Don’t forget to come back and link it Fawn!
I’m a self-confessed #1 Keen fan. My favorite pair is my Saratoga II, which currently reside at my backdoor as I wear them for the hourly ‘potty’ trips with my furry twins. The twins even love them so much they put their noses inside and take a nap cuddled around them (do my feet stink?). If they use them for a chew toy, there is no evidence. Can they be this rugged? Not that I want to find out. Since this pair is a sexy sling back, I think I’ll go for something completely different to expand my love of Keen’s. A warm pair of boots is on my list. I’m really fond of the Wintrop Boot. DId you notice the corset back (is this a theme for me?). They might be the best thing for a trip to Winthrop – my favorite rustic shopping town. Ever been? I’ll be off to Winthrop in my Winthrops.
I loooove the Amsterdam for my toddler and the Timberline for me 🙂
What a great giveaway! Katherine, you’re all about them lately!
The Daring One says
I like doing them if I really like the products and if they don’t take over the blog. If it’s getting too much, I hope you’ll tell me because the blogging and content are what I really care about. I just can’t pass up an opportunity to get free stuff for the people who spend time reading this blog.
I have a foot thing and have to buy good shoes, which are always expensive.
I would love to have the BLVD Timberline in orange (Love orange!) They look so comfortable and that my feet wouldn’t hurt at the end of the day.
I also love the green Betty bag.
I will definately link you on my blog!
The Daring One says
Just don’t forget to come back and post your link so I’ll know to enter you twice!
I can’t decide.
Laurel bag. Berkeley clog. Timberline clog.
The check these out too feature is dangerous. I could spend hours on the site checking everything out.
I linked to your contest on my blog!
Steph @ Diapers and Divinity says
I want the Winthrop boot! (It is SO cold here.) And behold, the peasants rejoice.
Cathryn Lane says
Love the Sidney II. Great site.
I want a pair of those Market Streets in Rust. I’d really really love them.
I saw these: WINTHROP BOOT and my heart went pitter patter! It’s LOVE! 😀
Mrs Lemon says
palermo mj in black, size 9.5 please 🙂
I forgot the name already, but I like the blue mary janes with the laser cut-outs. Either calistoga or charleston, one of those c words 🙂
Oh my. Ever since hearing about them earlier this year, I’ve been wishing for some. I’d love the Palermo or the Sydney, and then there’s the whole Laguna style for ocean kayaking in the summer. But if I’m really nice, and since my toes really aren’t in danger of going naked yet, I’d get my husband either a pair of Lagunas for when he leads kayaking trips or Whistlers because that’s as close as he will get to dress shoes and we live just a few hours from the place for which they are named. And men, including my husband, need more than two pair of shoes outside of mountaineering boots and climbing shoes – no matter what they tell you.
I love the Laurel bag i nblue – so cute! I also really like the Palermos – they look so comfortable!
Thanks for introducing this company to me – I was in group 3 before but I am totally looking forward to being in group 1 or 2.
I would love the black slate and grayed jade betty boot. I can’t live without them because my in-laws are snow-enthusiasts, and I am not currently prepared. My in-laws own a cabin in the mountains, in the woods that they built (by hand) themselves. They go there for holidays and throughout the year. It is a quiet and beautiful place to go, but until this past weekend I had never been there with significant snow. I’ve heard the stories about their snow ball fights, their sledding (night and day) and their sledding trails weaving amongst the trees – but I had never been a witness or invited to participate. Unfortunately, I don’t have a pair of snow boots, or snow pants, or a good-for-playing-in-the-snow winter coat. I have a pretty, flowy black winter coat and ankle-high fleecy boots… but they get wet and cold pretty quick. My In-laws ALL own knee high boots that snow will never penetrate. I was left out of the fun, relegated to sniper snowball attacks from the protected porch. I desperately need a good pair of snow boots!
Wow. These are great shoes. I’d love the wear around MJ, the palermo, or the sienna. These would be awesome to wear working at the hospital – cute but good for my feet!
Wow, am I ever having a hard time choosing one thing. I really love the Betty Bag in black slate/grayed jade. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway and the free shipping.
Mary O says
I like them all, but the Wear Around MJs look great, especially in Port Royale.
What a great giveaway!
Okay, I’ve plugged it. Thanks again for getting such a fun giveaway. Here’s my link to my post…..http://inklingwrites.blogspot.com/2008/11/very-keen-giveaway.html
The Daring One says
Did you just comment with this or did you comment telling me what you want too? I want to make sure you get entered twice and there have been a lot of Sara/Sarahs today.
This is my second comment. I forgot to put my link to the first comment, but here is the text of the first comment that I wrote at 8:05 a.m. your time today….

Mary Jenkins says
I want the sienna ballerina shoes in black! Keen rocks!
The Winthrop boot rocks and I need new boots bad. Though the Palermo MJ in brown are just adorable!
I would pick the betty boot in nile color. They are so cute!
Molly Novak says
I am so into these shoes and how great they would be for my kids but also our world… These are so cool. You always find fun new items to look at… Thans Katy! I am in the need of winter boots for my boys… I always try to get good things since I plan for at lease 2 boys to use them… 😉 I love how the winterport has some much insulation, good up to -25° F. The boys always start to cry when the fingers and toes start to sting. And the Easy slip-on design with bungee lace makes it so James can do it on his own…SO NIce! I think I will have to put these on our Santa list. Thanks for sharing. you Rock!
Jen @ The Short Years says
Oh goodness. How to choose one thing? I have been really wanting some cute, comfortable versatile shoes I could wear with everything. Probably the Palermo MJ, the Wear Around MJ, or the Sienna Ballerina. Getting more specific than that will be tough at this point. I hope I win! Awesome prize.
sweet mama entropy says
I’ve been looking for new shoes for 2 years now (seriously). I think I could find happiness with Keen. Thanks for moving me out of category 3! I like the Wear Around MJs or the Palermo MJs. But I suppose I don’t have to choose for real unless I win, do I? 🙂
oh how to choose….shoes i can wear to work? the palermo mj in black. shoes i can wear everywhere else? the ventura suede in black.
i never win anything so i’m really keeping my fingers crossed for this one!
sweet mama entropy says
And because I like the odds, here’s the link to the plug I gave ya on my site:
(since I can’t figure out how to make it a “live” link, if you click my name for this comment, it’ll take you right to my giveaway post)
I absolutely love the Irvington bag! It even has an LED light inside. Thanks for the introduction…I love the look and that the products are made with recycled materials!
Easy! the Keen Betty Bag – it’s already on my christmas list!
I love the Barcelona Mary Janes. They are fantastic.
My parents have bought a pair of Keens for all the boys in my family over the last few years. Seems they think the girls just don’t have a clue how great Keen is and what they’re missing.
I KNOW what I’m missing. Love the giveaway idea. Thanks for sharing!!
Never heard of the company, but their products look really nice. I like the Napa Boot-the flowers on it are really cute 🙂
Amy Huff says
I have been coveting the Sydney IIs for a LONG TIME now. I wander through REI every once in a while to catch a glimpse of them! Thanks for the contest!
Molly Novak says
I have added it to our site along with the deal I have been getting on http://www.thegrocerygame.com. My site is http://www.wheresdaddy.net
Sarah S says
Oh. My. Word. I love my keens. I want to own more. All of them. But my husband gives me that look anytime I even mention the brand. This will show him. That Mary Jane you featured will DEFINITELY be my next pick. Love it.
Oh wow! Just one…but how can I? I love the Charleston clogs or lace, but those mj’s are so cute too! Thanks for the opportunity!
Love the Black Olive Ridgeline trailhead shoes!
Can I just say that I reaaaaaaaallllllly want some Keens?
They are so cute! I love the MJ’s. And the bags too!
I would choose the Palerma MJ or the Sienna MJ. And I think I am going to win. Please!
I love the Sienna Ballerina!
Great giveaway! I would select the Vaoyageur boots (perfect for upcoming campouts–I’m a Scoutmaster), the jasper for comfort, or the Palerma MJ for my wife 🙂 Thanks.
would love the Amsterdam MJs for my daughter. and might have to get a matching pair for myself!
Squeee indeed! I think my favorite is actually the Winthrop boot in Cordovan. Some of the little kiddie shoes are charming too, but tragically cost way more than I’m willing to spend on something my little banana-biter will wear for less than six months. I guess if I win, I’ll have a real dilemma on my hands.
Palermo MJ in coffee for SURE.
My son wears only keens in the summer and I have a pair for warmer hiking months as well. I never really thought of them as an all-weather brand! You have opened my eyes, and probably my pocketbook!
hmmm, I really like the Wear around MJ or the Palermo MJ. But really, I think i would end up getting something for my hubby.
Stacy (mama-om) says
I knew what I wanted right away!
The Chamonix boot in pinecone, baby!
I have wanted brown boots forever. For some reason, I am doomed to never finding the perfect pair, but I can just feel that this time it’s going to be right! And FREE!!
(please, randomizer, pick me! pick me!)
Thanks, Kathryn and Keen!
I like the palermo mary jane.
The Wear Around MJ’s please.
So much cooler than the tennis shoes my daughter rolls her eyes at. 😉
I found your site through FawnDear’s…I’m sooo loving this. I like the Winthrop Clog! I’m loving clogs these days! Thanks for doing this. You’re awesome.
Jennifer May says
I would love the Oswego Messenger bag or the Trailhead Vail boots…… Awesome contest!
Hillary - The Queen I Am Not says
Oh, I’m loving the boots! Maybe the Betty? Maybe the Summit? Love them!
Ooooohhhh. I want those Vail boots! I need something to keep me warm in Chicago this winter.
Okay… I linked to ya! It’s on here: http://fourinarow.net/cool-i-mean-warm/
Wow, I love them all! But I really like the San Antonio slip-ons for men. My husband is an elementary school teacher and is always looking for comfortable shoes that are professional looking. These look perfect! Great contest!
I can’t decide between the brooklyn bag for me or the amsterdam shoes for either of my girls. Or maybe the blue genoa peak WP. There are so many good choices!
First off, don’t punish me simply because I don’t have a blog….I know, I can only be entered once because I’m not blog-proficient yet 🙁
However I must tell you how Keen’s saved my life. I have an 11 year old daughter that apparently has some sensory issues when it comes to her feet. For one year she would only wear these certain shoes I could only find at Payless simply because she could wiggle her toes in them. Then, once school is out and summer hits, it is only flip-flops, that’s it! Well, then come this summer when Grandma and Grandpa are taking her to Disneyland. Grandma politely tells me that should won’t take a grandaughter to Disneyland wearing flip flops every day…oh, and the Payless shoes are not being made any more. What is a Mom to do? Welcome Keens. I must admit, I was not to ‘keen’ on the price after shopping at Payless for this girl for several years. However, after Grandma convinced me, I caved and spent more money for my 11 year old daughter on a pair of shoes than I think I have ever spent on a pair of shoes for myself. As you can suspect, by the end of the summer, I was telling everyone that that was the BEST $100 I’ve ever spent! Thank you Keens! Of course now she needs a pair she can also wear in the winter which is why you must choose me for this offer!
Jennifer Sandbergt says
Love the Chamonix! Shoes in the winter are so hard for me, but I love Keens!
Holy crap..the Winthrop boot is TO DIE FOR. I picture myself wearing it with jeans, with slacks and OF COURSE, with a cute skirt.
Kellie Unger says
The wear around MJ’s look really cute and comfortable. My poor feet could use some comfort. Thanks for doing this.
wow, I LOVE the wear around MJs. So cute, so comfy looking! What color would I choose…blue or black? Hard to say…
OK: mother of 5 boys chiming in here! I don’t usually use that as a maneuver for sympathy, but here it only makes sense. These feet deserve their first Keens -they have active kiddos to run after. I’d totally pick the Berkeley or Palermo Mary Janes. Cute. Classy. Versatile. And easy to slip on as I run out the door!
I’ve heard of them, but have never seen them either in stores or on someone else, so I’d love to try out these “wonder shoes!” I really liked the Winthrop boot – it looks warm and great for rainy/snowy weather.
Seriously? This is too cool. I’d get the Betty bag for my sister. It’s so cute!
Oh, I’m drooling over the Winterport shoes. Stone grey and mulled grape, please.
Alyssa Tessmer says
I love the Winthrop boot! Cute, but also warm and functional!
I am liking the Sienna Mary Jane. I also like that they have sizes to fit my huge feet!
I love the Shay boots in black. They look so cozy and wonderful!
Amber Snair says
Boo yah! Linked you!
pick me! pick me! pick me! I’m digging that Betty bag but really need the Shay boots for dog walking.
Wow, I didn’t realize Keen had so many styles now. I love the winthrops and the palermos. I have perpetually cold feet so the thought of my little feeties encased in those warm boots sounds heavenly!
Um, what *don’t* I love on their site? I think the final tossup is between the Palermo and the Ventura. Yum.
It looks like I have a crush on the Calistoga little mary jane looking shoes. And the Winthrop boots are awesome. I wouldn’t know what to do with the rest of myself if my feet looked that cool!
And now that I have torn myself away from the Keen website, I need to figure out what to do with the cinnamon scented pinecones I bought at Joanne’s on a whim – I think they are burning my nostrils…
Ohhh I choose one of those Irvington bags, what a hip diaper bag it would make!
Jocelyn R says
I have decided that I cannot live without the Wear Around MJ in Port Royale.
Oooooh, I have been coveting the Trailhead sandals for a couple of seasons now (I will have them, yes, yes someday!) but you made me look at the bags.
And I have fallen in love, I am daydreaming about the Alameda computer bag (black) because I have convinced myself that it will be the perfect mommy/toddler bag. The rugged construction, the inspired and many organized pockets. Sigh, if only I had not seen another bag first, but the hubby will never let me replace an ok bag.
So throw my name in and I’ll cross my fingers, hope and daydream some more, that one day my love and I will meet and never part.
I’m back and your linked! Wahoo two entries. I can’t wait!
The “Market Street” ones are just what my brother has been looking for. They are stylish and will keep him dry and warm in the New England weather.
Ahhhh I love the laptop bags!
I love the PALERMO BOOTS! I desperately need a pair for my upcoming trip but haven’t been able to justify the expense on top of the travel… this could be my big chance!
Oh my – I love the Palermo MJ – can’t decide between black of coffee bean. They are too yummy.
Thanks for introducing me to an super-cool company. Am currently adjusting gift giving ideas!
Now, I don’t think my life will be complete without a pair of Venture Suede shoes. 😉
sarah k. says
I see my chances are diminishing exponentially. Well, I did post a lovely and emotional entry
on my own spectacular blog. You’re welcome.
I cannot live without a messenger bag big enough to fit my planner, Franklin Covey wallet, and all other necessary purse items. I’ve been searching for months. IKEA is the closest I can find to something that would work, but still not in a decent color…I’m hoping the OSWEGO would work…
You are know featured on my blog too! Crossing my fingers.
I love so much that I’m having trouble narrowing it down BUT right now I’m totally crushing on the Palermo Mary Janes. LOVE THEM!
Paula Walker/Jensen says
Cute shoes, I am ashamed to admit but I am in category #3, I have never heard of these shoes before, maybe because I haven’t bought new shoes in over 5 years…just flip flops, but now that it is my second winter in Utah, i’m venturing out and looking for some close toed shoes. This are very stylish, my favorite two would have to be the Presidio’s and the Winthrop boots. Anyhow, glad to see you are doing well.
Just moved to Wisconsin to start a PhD program and NO BOOTS.
Come on, Karma, I need those orange and grey Winterport boots, # 5221.
Because the sneakers that I wear because they have good traction? Are made to let hot air OUT, which means they also let cold air IN. Eep!
Put me in twice – here’s my post –
Lady of Perpetual Chaos says
I’m liking the Calistoga’s. I may even be daring enough to get them in blue! ;o)
I love the Wear Around MJs!
I love the Oswego bag in the port/orange color. It would be a bright spot in all of my dull colored winter wear, and it looks like it could last. Most of my purses tend to die after 5 or 6 months. I tend to carry at least one book (sometimes two- cause what would I do if I finished the first one?) and various products to beautify me (most of which I never use or thought I’d lost.) So that is the product I would choose from the website. Thanks!
I love Keens! They are so great, I feel like a cool Seattlite when I wear the ones I have! I really need the Mary janes, gotta have them to fit in with all the cool moms on the block!
My Twenty Cents Keeps Moving says
I love the Winthop clog!
So… yeah. I pretty much need everything on that site now.
But I love the Palermo MJs.
And I think I kind of need to have the Morrison bag.
And either an Oswego or a Brooklyn. Or both.
(pick me! pick me! pick me!)
Hmmm….There are a lot of really cute Mary Janes there, but I think I am leaning towards the Winthrop boot in black.
And please pick me again because I link-ed!
Please pick me!!!!
I love the coffee liquor Sienna MJ’s (Say that five times fast – while you have a screaming baby in the other room!
Oh, I LOVE the Sienna Ballerina Shoes in tan. GORGEOUS.
myrna eisenlauer says
OOhhh, thats a tough decision. But the Palermo Mary Janes, look quite comfy.
These shoes look awesome:
Wow, what a great give away. I looked at the women’s shoes and completely love the Palmero MJ’s. But if I won this I would have to get the Youth Tallinn boots for my munchkin. She is in need of boots for the winter and I always put her needs before mine. Good luck to all!
I think I would have to pick the wear around MJ. I have been looking for something other then sandels to wear since the weather is getting colder. I just cant stand tennis shoes all the time.
I love the Sienna Ballerina. Awesome!
Must have the Calistoga Mary Janes. I bought my son a pair of Keens this summer and they held up so well through all of his shenanigans. Even if I don’t win, I need a pair of my own.
I’m entering for my beloved friend, if I win these, it’s the best present I could ever give her. 🙂 Please pick me. 🙂
What a great company!! I love their style too. I had a hard time choosing but I finally decided on BLVD “ventura suede” in the pine cone color.
Thea @ I'm a Drama Mama says
I loved the Winthrop Slip On
haha I’m not entering the giveaway, but i believe that the three kind of people in this world are:
1. people who can count
2. people who can’t
Oh man.. it’s a tie between green Jasper shoes and the black Betty bag.
Okay, well… after getting lost on the KEEN website, I think possibly, maybe my fav is the OSWEGO bag in Port Royal. However, I am quite sure that if I visit that site everyday for the next seven days I will decide on a new favorite on each and every day. They have some awesome stuff!
I am not a shoe person ( I KNOW!) but just a few days ago I complimented a friend on her Keen Berkeleys. She’s really cool, so if I can have shoes like her I know I, too, will be cool.
Palermo MJs please. I’d be happy with either color too! 🙂
Calistogas in Orion Blue- I LOVE these! Thanks for sharing these great products!
Okay, this is my first time commenting on your blog but I emailed you a few weeks ago! Pick me. I love the Winthrop Boot…if that is how you spell it. I really like the black ones!
I love your blog!
After my surgery I plan on getting back into hiking the beautfiul mountains and would love to have the TARGHEE II MID. They are just awesome!! Thanks for the chance to win.
the wear-around MJs were, quite simply, made for me.
The Wear Around MJs are pretty stinkin’ cute!
Newport, Laguna, Venice…doesn’t matter. I wish thye still had the orange ones! I’d live in those shoes!
I love the Wear Around MJ pair that you have pictured, and I also love the Sienna MJs. So cute! For a second entry, my post is here.
I’ve put this second entry in for Seven to make the drawing easier.
I looove the Saratoga IIs. 🙂
Oh my goodness. I’ve never heard of these shoes until now, and they are so, so pretty. I like the Venice H2 to match our new-to-us canoe. The Winthrop boots are stunning, and the Calistoga and the Palermo are just fun.
Can I say how much I really love ALL the shoes? Especially since I’ve been wearing the same “leather mocs” for 7 years now?? Seriously. I need help.
count me in, woman!
What I really, really want are an exact replacement for my 4 year old Jamestowns that have travelled everywhere with me and are starting to finally wear out. Sigh.
Being that I have to choose something currently available on the site, I do love the Berkley mary jane/clogs. Something new and different compared to my other five pairs of Keens. My family is definitely in category 1 – that is all anyone over 1 wears! My 7 year old cries if I make him wear his tennis shoes…
I love the Palermo Mary Janes in black. I”m looking for a new casual black shoe–this is perfect! Thanks for a great giveaway!
Pamela D says
These are amazing! I would love to be able to get the Palermo Boots in red or brown.
Well, I’m absolutely in love with the CHAMONIX in Pinecone! They are a thing of beauty. 🙂
On the bag front I love, love, love the Oswego bag.
Link to my blogpost..
Love me the Palermo Boots!
Pickles & Dimes says
Thanks for doing this contest! I love the Palermo MJs. Mary Janes are SO CUTE!
I have fallen in love with the Sienna Ballerina!!

Oh my word! This giveaway is to die for!
The part of me that things I should dress better would love the Palermo Mary Janes! They are SO cute.
The “I need new walking shoes’ part of me loves the Genoa Peak WP.
If I win, then I guess we’ll have to see which part of me wins out!
love those MJ’s….but LOVE any kind of Keen!
I have to agree with many other commenters and choose the Sienna Ballerina. Always wanted to do ballet just to have the shoes but had no talent or coordination whatsoever. So these will satisfy the desire while being more comfortable and enviro-friendly! Looking forward to the free shipping even if I don’t win free stuff.
Really…just one thing? I guess it would be the presidio….no…the briggs…..or maybe the portola….so hard to chose!!
I’ve been dieing for a pair of the Venice sandals…in bosa nova!
The best giveaway I’ve ever seen!
Check out the linky love..

I loooove the winthrop boot!!! 🙂 What a fun site keen has. I’ve seen their stuff advertised in magazines once in a while but had never visited them before. Cool stuff.
winthrop boot in black. size 8.
I know I’m going to win this one.
Gretchen Moscon says
I LOVE THE WINTERPORT SHOE!!!!!!! I live in the Boston area, far, far from my beloved Seattle beginnings, where this shoe couldn’t be more perfect for stomping down slush-covered sidewalks!
I laughed for hours about your “little green balls of death” post 🙂

After much “shopping” on the site- which I totally love now, (thanks)- I had a list of 4 items, until I saw the Irvington bag- rust-orange shitake ochre. OMGosh!!! I love it. Right now I have a 7very tacky hot pink bag that I currently take to work. It has 1 pocket- and as we all know, 1 pocket is not enough for a woman. I have too many essentials I need at work and I end up digging around in the main section of the bag for everything because the small pocket is only big enough for my cell phone and a pen. YIKES! CAN’T WAIT for the big announcement of the winner!!!
Julie Y. says
Check out my post about your lovely giveaway!!!
The Winthrop boot would have saved me in Montreal. I would love to have them for Missouri! Thanks for the great giveaway!
Those Winthrop boots are giving me heart palpitations. Can any boots be that good? Apparently… yes.
The Daring One says
Congratulations! You are the winner. Please email me back soon with the email address where you’d like your promotional code sent.
I think my husband would really like the Winterport boots or the other pair of winter boots. 🙂

I like the Palermo Mary Jane in brown. So cute, yet looks comfy, too.
I’m a very indecisive person, it would take a long long time for me to pick only one thing…I had no idea they had so many different shoes, even mjs! I had only seen the Keen’s water shoes. As for the site: I love that when you can move your mouse over the shoes you can see all the color options. I think the pink and burgundy ones are very pretty, but if I was buying them I would most likely talk myself into a conservative (goes with everything) blue or brown. But there’s just too much to choose from. I agree the calistoga shoe and the mjs are very cute, but I would probably get a running type shoe. I’d have to go to a store to see which one fits my narrow kangaroo foot best. I’d have to ask someone, who has shoe know how, which shoe, for my foot, would be best to train in for a marathon…and then that’s what I would get. They all look extremely comfortable. My parents and sister’s family each have a pair (or two) of the water ones (which was the first time I heard of keens) and they love them… If I HAD to pick right now, I’m guessing, I would pick the ridgeline trailhead shoes in barogue rose. Because they are very pretty and look like they would wear well for a running shoe and not look dirty really fast. I wish I could see the bottom of the shoe…I need lots of arch support…and I’d have to make sure they weren’t too tall on the sides for my ankle bone. But these are really cute! So I guess that’s what I’d get.
Woo, I love the Chamonix in Army. My husband has been wearing Keen shoes for the past couple of years. I had to talk him into getting some, he said they were funky, but now he loves them.
Oh boy! I totally (heart) Keens so it is a tough choice. I’ve narrowed my choices to two. Option one is if I am feeling generous I would get the Morrison day pack to replace my husband backpack that was stolen a couple weeks ago. Option two if I am feeling selfish is the Targhee II walking shoes so I can get out in the Seattle rain and splash in the puddles.
I didn’t even realize I was a Keens fan until I saw the sandals we bought my toddler on their site. So, if I was to pick an item out, I’d choose a pair of their sneakers for him for the winter: http://www.keenfootwear.com/product.aspx?p=524&pc=1493.
I can’t decide between the Calistogas or the Presidios. Not to mention all the cute kids’ stuff.
I really, really want to get my hubs the Summit County Winter boots. We both love, love, love everything Keen. And his tootsies will be cold without any winter boots!
I love the PALERMO BOOT in red because they look warm (Minnesota winters) and I had some red boots in high school and I miss them.
Their website is really neat! I love the shoes- the boots are super cute, but I think my favorite shoes are the Calistoga ballet shoes in the BLVD collection. I would probably get black or possibly seal brown.
Ohhh the morrison daypack…would be extra awesomeness.
Jennifer W says
The Morrison Daypack for my love, my hubby. Would be perfect for his bicycle commute, which is awkward at the moment due to big ol Jansport bag from college that isn’t lasting us much longer.
Definitely for my man!!
The Stockholm boot is simple, pretty and extremely practical for those of us entering an icky New England winter!
I’m a Palermo kind of girl, in black please!
I really need the Calistoga for my feet during this pregnancy!
Those Palermo Mary Jane’s are seriously drool-worthy!
I have been eyeing keens for a while now, but this is the perfect opportunity to take the plunge! I *need* some new snow boots (my old ones literally fell apart after 7 years of abuse) and the Betty Boots would be perfect! My fingers are crossed!
I admit I have a deep love of shoes so it is impossible to only choose one soooooooooooooooooooooooooo
I narrowed it down to four:
Napa, portola, winthorp boot or Chamonix boot.
Any one of them would bring much much foot joy. Happy holidays everyone!!!
Mrs. F says
I love. love, love the black Calistoga’s. I also love giveaways, so this is perfect for me!
Wow, I love those Waterfront Newports. *crosses fingers*
That Northrup bag and those Calistoga shoes . . . mmm.
If I had to pick just ONE it would be the Calistoga….but what a difficult choice.
I could really go places in a pair of those Oregon PCTs. Thanks for the link!
Heather Lafter says
I’d love a pair of boots!! I am a poor sweet Utahn who lives in much snow and has not even one pair of boots!! I need me some boots!!
Love your blog!
Bailey's Leaf says
Wear Around MJ’s in Port Royale, please! Thank you so much! I love my Birkenstocks, but would love love love a pair of these, too!
Bailey's Leaf says
I behaved and did as instructed. Please, may I have the pretty shoes now?
Sarah Sakry says
That’s a huge decision, but at the moment (since I have a snowballs chance in you know where – I’ve NEVER won anything. Seriously, 4 years of playing bingo in spanish class in high school and naught a win, big sigh), I really like the weararound MJs, in blue because that’s my son’s favorite color (which he insists on telling everyone. I think the entire state of MN knows his favorite color). I’ll keep my fingers, toes, eyes, etc crossed. Oughtta make for an interesting couple days….
Brad B says
We have been converts ever since we got our boy some Vail’s. Wish they made an adult version! But in the meantime, my adult pick for myself would be some black Winterports..
I love the palermos, you can wear them anywhere!
I’m pretty much in a forever kind of love with the Wear Around MJ…..the problem is, I can’t decide which color. If I win, I’d probably have to buy the other two.
The wear around MJs are the cutest things I have ever seen. I am CRAZY in love with them, I tell you. I wish I had a current blog so that I could be entered 2x or better yet, a bazillion current blog sites, so I could be entered that many times. They are just that cute and look really comfortable. My legs have been aching lately and I think they would be just the thing to help cushion the tile floor trauma. OH, Please pick me!!!
Oh without a doubt the Moroccan Blue Wear Around MJ’s. Adorable!

Milaka Falk says
I can’t decide whether I like the Palmero boot or the Winthrop boot!!! I love boots!!! But then there’s the Barcelona . . . .
And have a great thanksgiving!
Gina Martin says
The shitake and ruby wine wasatch crest wp’s in size 5.5 are calling to me…they want to come live at my house and comfort my poor, aching tootsies.
Ohhhhh I LOVE the boots….all of them.
I am a boot and clog freak!
These shoes are awesome!
My girls and I would fight over picking a favorite. We all 3 can share the same shoes. It’s so cool!
I love the Palermo’s and Winthrops.
Perfect for snowy Indiana!
Melanie @ MelADramatic Mommy says
The suede ballerina slippers are so cute! I like the rice paper bag too but I’m more into the shoes. Thank you!
Wow. You rock. You find the coolest stuff.
I’d pick the MJ’s. They are something I would totally love to get but are on my “I’ll never splurge on something like that” list.
bev hale says
I like the saratoga II and the berkley and most of the others…sigh,. I want most of the shoes. Thanks for telling me about this site.
My husband really needs a new pair of sandals. I think he would be all over the Newport ones…
Jennifer Poncavage says
I so need a black pair of palermo mj’s or perhaps wear around mj’s. Love them both! Thanks for the opportunity!
I’m “keen” on the Winthrop Slip-On shoes in black!
I love the Palermo boot (practical and pretty) and the Sienna Ballerina. I’ve only admired Keens from afar, so this is a very fun giveaway! And I’m glad to have seen their site!
I want the Winthrop boots. WANT WANT WANT!
Wow, you’ve got a lot of entries for this one. I’ll give it a try anyway. I hadn’t heard about Keens, but after looking at their website, I know they are the shoes that I’ve seen and coveted on other’s feet. We just got back from a trip and I was wishing I had some shoes like the Trailhead walking sandals, maybe Mystic variety. I saw someone wearing some of those and knew I needed to get some shoes like that soon for the right mix of breathability and comfortable walkability. But my day pack also disintigrated on the trip, so one of their daypacks would also be very useful.
