Dubbed "Hybrid Footwear," Keen's shoe line has a clear emphasis on sustainability. The Ventura Canvas reflects this philosophy, while maintaining a classic, casual sneaker design. Their first completely vegan shoe, the canvas upper uses organic cotton and recycled aluminum eyelets. Like the rest of Keen's line, the Ventura makes comfort a high priority. The removable metatomical footbed—made from jute, cork and natural latex—helps mold to the foot. The outsole is composed of natural rubber too and features Keen's signature toe protection in the front.
The Ventura Canvas comes in five different colors (all of them faded earth tones). You can find retailers on their site. And if you were unsure of Keen's commitment to sustainability, you might be convinced when they come in a new Hybrid Box that uses biodegradable materials, natural water-based latex glue, soy-based inks and weighs 25% less than the old box, reducing labor, power and fuel in shipping.
