Is it even really summer if you’re not walking about with a pair of KEEN on your feet? Not as far as we’re concerned. In each of the last couple of years, the sunnier months have seen a proliferation of these slightly odd creations, growing in popularity each year. A crowning moment then, sees KEEN collaborate with END on a version of the UNEEK that takes inspiration from flying Kites.
Drawing inspiration from the age-old pursuit of kite flying and the British coastline, the British and American brands’ offering combines the spirit of freedom with the UNEEK’s unparalleled aesthetics. Cast in a neutral, earthy colour palette, the collaboration pairs Vetiver and Crème Brulee tones to gesture to the kaleidoscope of colours seen in the sandy beaches, dunes and coastal elements of rural Britain. Just nice, understated sandals that can be worn with ease by everyone from your biggest try-hard mate to your actual Nanna.
