A Really Keen Giveaway

**A winner has been chosen**

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.
Wear Around MJ
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.

Betty BootHead 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?

bag_bettyAnd 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.

    I love the palermos, you can wear them anywhere!

  2. Sara says:

    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.

  3. grammyelin says:

    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!!!

  4. Heather says:

    Oh without a doubt the Moroccan Blue Wear Around MJ’s. Adorable!

    I can’t decide whether I like the Palmero boot or the Winthrop boot!!! I love boots!!! But then there’s the Barcelona . . . .

    Pick me!!!

    And have a great thanksgiving!

  6. 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.

  7. Wanda says:

    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!


  8. The suede ballerina slippers are so cute! I like the rice paper bag too but I’m more into the shoes. Thank you!

  9. Squishy says:

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. Shalee says:

    My husband really needs a new pair of sandals. I think he would be all over the Newport ones…

  12. 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!

  13. Michelle says:

    I’m “keen” on the Winthrop Slip-On shoes in black!

  14. Kit says:

    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!

  15. Beck says:

    I want the Winthrop boots. WANT WANT WANT!

  16. Carolee says:

    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.
