These Keen Santiago Shoes are a big step forward when it comes to a positive business innovation that gives back to the very community that inspired it.

After being inspired by Santiago’s propensity for sustainable footwear-making practices and vibrant colors, the forward-thinking company began production on a new line of footwear that would celebrate and contribute to the region. The result was a collection of Keen Santiago Shoes with names like Living Coral, Mimosa and Lilac Sachet. However, Keen’s tribute to this hotbed of inspiration didn’t stop at catchy product naming. In fact, a portion of every Santiago Shoe sold goes to the HybridLife Hope Fund, which is a socially conscious organization that works to help revitalize Santiago communities in a majorly positive way.
