High Gear: Review of KEEN Versatrail men's shoes
I’d always heard such awful things about KEEN shoes, like how genuinely soft and cushy they were justice out of the box, but never tried them out until easing my tootsies into the Versatrail men’s hikers.
Boy, were previous to word-of-mouth reviews spot on. These all-purpose, mountain-inspired lows felt like old friends from the importance I clamped down the bungee lacing system.
With just enough traction to seamlessly transmutation from casual trail running to aggressively attacking hills, or even condign for getting yourself around town, these lightweight, progressive shoes don’t disappoint. Granted, these aren’t Virbram-upfront outsoles made to tackle the toughest of treks, but they’re also a lot more comfortable than many of the shoes I’ve frayed that possess those heavy rubber outers.

Nand said his sense launching Creative Recreation in 2002 was helpful in preparing him for his new foray, but that consumer demands today are original. (Nand sold his interest in Creative Rec in 2013.)
“It’s been a call into doubt to rethink the way I do everything,” he said. “A simple exempli gratia is producing shoes seasonally — that’s not how people rat on, that’s not how direct-to-consumer works.”
As he navigates the challenges that charge with a new business, Nand believes the future of retail is a compound of traditional retail relationships and online commerce — and that’s why the Barneys partnership will be an substantial step for the brand. “Barneys is an experiential retailer. It’s significant to me to have our customers be able to actually pick up our collection, try it on and pat and feel the quality for the first time,” Nand explained, noting that the be influenced store’s buyers pride themselves on discovering new brands.
