Oh, my boys need the Kootenay in Pinecone!
I adore the sienna ballerina flats in black!
Oh, I LOVE those boots and I LOVE Keens! They are my favorite shoe! I would totally love those boots!
Those Stockholm boots are suitable in Stockholm right now as the city turned white a few says ago - suitable for the ladies that is.
I would be *keen* to wear a pair of hiking shoes or the boots. They have some great selections!
I've been looking for a pair of black boots. I like the Stockholm too, but I think I'd choose the Winthrop.
I love Keen products! I love the Ventura Suede kickers! I am also digging the Sienna Ballerina and Wear Around MJ. Hmmm, so many choices! As for Keen things other than shoes - LOVE THE Irving & Betty bags. I am a bag junkie!
I love the design of the Berkeley. It is really hard to pick a favorite!
I am in love with Keen too! I have a couple of pair sandals, and a pair of shoes too....but am in need of black boots at the moment too....so it's a toss up between the Stockholm and the Winthrop...but I think the Winthrop is winning because it is a shinier leather.
I am a Keen ADDICT. Er, well, I would be if they weren't so expensive. The boots fill me with joy and I covet them like crazy - both the Stockholm and the brand new Winthrop, which I've been adoring from afar for a few months now. This would totally make my Christmas.
Oh my goodness...I'm in love with those boots...and like a million other things. Here are a bunch of my favs:
The Ventura Suede Shoes (in Pinecone) are super cute! I'd love to win them!
The Vail boot for toddlers is PERFECT for my youngest!!
I like the Stockholm Winter Boots too and also the Market St Palermo MJ :)
i agree the stockholm boot is great, i'm also totally into the Oswego bag and the Winterport Shoe.
I really love the Coffee Bean Chamonix!
Thank You for the great givaway! My favorite Keen product is the, Palermo Boot in biking red. My friend gave me my first pair of Keen shoes. Let me tell you I love them.
OMG-I'm SALIVATING! I love the Venice, Winthrop clog, Napa, Charleston clog and the wear around lace just to start!
The Winthrop Boot is the cutest ever... but it was a very very hard choice...
Love the Sienna Ballerina!
I like the Trailhead shoes in red. Very practical for hiking!
I love the CHAMONIX boot. It looks so stylish and comfy at the same time. Keen always has good quality products.
I would seriously wear those Ventura Canvas shoes every single day of my life!! They look so comfy. Thanks!!
My favorite pair are the Targhee II Mid in Concord. Thank you for a great contest!
I adore all KEEN products!
I love the Calistoga shoes in blue
Hi... the Winthrop Clog. I love all their stuff - every pair of Keens I've ever bought are super high quality. Thanks,
What a fun giveaway. I'd love a pair of Mary Jane's, but I'm actually hoping to get a pair of Whistlers for my husband who needs shoes but won't let me spend money on him to do that.
I love the BLVD, Timberline in Sweat Pea!
I love the Winthrop boots in black - they'd be great for the city. dagro1 at aol dot com.
Wow. I don't think I've heard of this co. before but I love all of their shoes. The winner is going to have a hard time choosing. I currently like portola but I'm sure it will change the next time I look at the site.
I love keen shoes. Very comfy. I love the Winthrop boots in black or the Palermo boots in red. Awesome!
I love the Winthrop boots and the port royale Sienna Ballerina
I need some new boots-the Betty Boot
Black Winthrop OR Stockholm boots. This is hard! I have loved Keen's shoes for so long :)
I am a recent Keen convert. I'd go with the Stockholm in brown or the Portola. I love them!
The Stockholms in black will get me through a maine winter!
Keen is a fabulous company all around. Everything they do is perfection, but if I had to pick some favorites, I'd say I like the Wear Around Laces and the Wear Around MJs. I also love the Harvest bags for their sustainability factor.
I love the Berkeley... so cute!!!
Love the Palermo MJs and the Amsterdams
I love all the boots but I think the Winthrop are my favorite. Thanks for the chance. lys76 at msn dot com
I don't care about giveaways...I just want to say that I love Keens.
i love the vail toddler boots!
Those boots are great!
I love the black Stockholm boots! Get ready for winter in Colorado!
Those are some cute boots! I love Keen's shoes especially for their toe wiggle room. My husband bought my first pair at REI for my birthday. So far I've only worn the amphibious sandals, but now that I've seen their website, there are so many more to choose from. I love clogs, so the Saratoga II in soy is a favorite, as well as the Chamonix in army (looks so European). And I love the Betty Bag in pink. Too cute! I also like the fact that Keen gives back to the community. I'd really enjoy wearing these boots while hiking with my bouncy lab Cooper up in the Oakland Hills.
I like the Charmonix shoes in coffee bean! They look comfy!
I like the Palermo, Chamonix and Winthrop boots. Ooh the Timberline looks really comfortable.
