Though KEEN is known primarily as an outdoor and activewear company, its hybrid UNEEK sneaker/sandal is a silhouette that does double duty from a style perspective — blending seamlessly into the towering glass buildings and concrete backdrops of the urban terrain. The modern look of The Monochrome Black and Star White colorways of the UNEEK allow them to transition easily between the trials of the hiking trail, where performance is key, and the metallic city landscape where a sleek look helps them stand out.

Built using an open air, flexible cord construction, the UNEEK is a break from all the suede and leather that defines most footwear today — welcomed especially during the humid summer months in the city. Functionally, the cords can be tightened down with a lock for a perfect fit and the razor-siped sole adds stability on slick surfaces whether you’re scrambling over rocks or running to catch the subway.

Take a look at the complete lookbook above, and shop the UNEEK sneaker on KEEN’s website for $100 USD.
