Active Vacation? Shoes to Take You Anywhere
We recently completed a very active vacation filled with hiking, bicycling and white water rafting. It was amazing. Also amazing was that we found a brand of shoe perfect for outdoor vacations.
Keen makes the perfect shoe for active families. The thick rubber sole is perfect for hiking; my daughter said it helped her “stick” to the mountain rocks. Breathable sandal design and quick drying webbing make these terrific for rafting. And the ability to tighten the shoe for a secure fit makes them great for biking. The protected toes mean no painful stubbing.
We absolutely loved our Keens and highly recommend them for active summer fun!
