The New KEEN x HYKE Footwear Collaboration Is a Breath of Fresh Air
Featuring two new editions of the Rosarita II and San Juan Sandal II.
KEEN and and cult Japanese label HYKE have just presented their new footwear collaboration and it sees the duo unveil a series of breathable sandals that take inspiration from the great outdoors.
The collaboration was first spotted during HYKE’s Spring/Summer 2023 runway show and it showed a combination of HYKE’s classic styles with KEEN’s futuristic approach to footwear silhouettes. Now, HYKE is following up on its recent collaboration with Moncler with two special edition versions of the classic Rosarita II and San Juan Sandal II.
Each sandal has been crafted using eco-friendly nubuck leather and has been complemented with a footbed made from a microfiber top layer, combined with an EVA sole and midsole. Additionally, the sandals are also given increased traction through the groves that have been added to the sole.
Rounding things off, both breathable designs are made with a dual-branded footbed, while each style also includes breathable air holes on the lateral sides and around the heels.
You can take a closer look at the new KEEN x HYKE collaboration above and the sandals will be available on the official HYKE website here and the KEEN site here from March 22.
