The low-top Keen Jasper is available in both US men’s and women’s sizes. Keen acknowledges the sneaker’s sizing inaccuracy. It suggests adding half a size because the sneaker runs smaller than the usual size.
Secured wear is possible due to the lace-to-toe extended lacing enclosure while the suede leather upper offers flexibility and a lightweight feel.
Offered in various color schemes, the Keen Jasper ensures that anyone will be able to appreciate its distinctive silhouette. Its climbing-inspired profile consists of a suede leather upper, toe cap protector, front lace-up enclosure, and pull heel tab.
It is recommended to pair the sneakers with shorts for men and leggings for females to bring out its outdoor-style charm. Complete the ensemble with a plain shirt and wayfarer sunglasses.
The recycled PU (polyurethane) and cork footbed provides cushioning and conforms to the shape of the foot. Its non-marking rubber outsole provides grip and traction.
The shoe brand Keen was established in 2003 by Martin Keen in Alameda, California. Being relatively new to the sneaker industry, it quickly gained notoriety because of its marketing strategies and being labeled as a brand on the rise by the publication Footwear News.
Throughout its existence, Keen has been mostly known as a women’s brand. Its affordable and high-quality slip-on shoes and sandals certainly helped in establishing that notion. Recently, the brand made strides on its appeal to male consumers by offering versatile casual shoes. One of the recent additions to the brand’s lifestyle collection is the Keen Jasper, which is available for both men and women.
- The color schemes currently offered for men are silver mink, Cathay spice/Orion blue, black, bluebird/autumn glory, and green/red/purple.
- Women’s color options are black, Cathay spice/Orion blue, and silver mink.
