IN OTHER NEWS:
Keen Name: Did you know? The word ‘keen’ can be used as an adjective to describe anything from someone having a sharp and penetrating mind to something having a sharp edge or point. As a noun, ‘keen’ is a vocal lament, like what you’d hear at a traditional Irish wake. But the footwear brand KEEN is not named for any of the above. The company is named for its founder, shoe designer and world-class sailor, Martin Keen. Sick of smacking his toes as he scrambled around the deck of his boat while wearing traditional sandals, Keen invented the Newport, which offered more support and a little something new—a protective toe cap. That spirit of innovation continues to drive KEEN to redefine footwear.
