Summer is around the corner and that means kids need new summer footwear. KEEN makes some of our favorite summer footwear for kids and adults in our home. KEEN launched a new line of kids footwear this week called UNEEK. This unique collection mirrors the adult UNEEK shoes and defies traditional footwear style through its innovative two-cord construction and open-air footwear technology. The line is available in five vibrant color combos for youth and little kids—Liberty/Azure Blue, True Blue/Kio, Black/Macaw, Magnet/Tango Red, and Dress Blue/Very Berry. My oldest daughter was so excited to review a pair of the KEEN Kids UNEEK shoes in Dress/Blue/Very Berry (as always, all opinions are our own).
The UNEEK offers a water-repellent nylon cord design manufactured to adapt to the natural form of child's foot for a custom and comfortable fit—perfect for exploring the trails, city hopping, and running through the sand! With the color options available, there's sure to be one that every child likes. The UNEEK shoe comes in little kids (sizes 8-13) and big kids (sizes 1–6), which means that even women with small feet like me can wear the kids' sizing, too!
The fun, bright colors and free-moving cord construction make this shoe a must-have. The UNEEK offers sneaker support with a sandal-like feel and a non-marking sole, which means they can even be used in gym class without the worry of marking the floor. The interlocking nylon cords form to kids' feet for a just-right fit. The UNEEK has a fully enclosed heel with soft, quick-dry lining so even if they get wet, they'll soon be dry for the next activity. The UNEEK is comfy enough for a full day of play, and the eye-catching design stands out in a crowd. The secure fit lace capture system makes getting them on and off a cinch! And with Cleansport NXT™ for natural odor control, you have to love that your kids' stinky feet odor will be tackled before it begins, which is super important with rugged summer play. My daughter loves her pair and my twins would like their own pairs, as well. I expect soon the whole family will each have their own UNEEK KEEN shoes.
