Keen Footwear Expands US Operation

9 February 2021

Keen are increasing their U.S. production by 26%, driven by strong demand for its “American Built” Utility boots and premium hikers. In addition, Keen are expanding their relationship with Nester Hosier, a partner of 14 years. Specifically, Nester Hosiery will develop, manufacture and distribute new designs for men’s, women’s, and youth socks

“Built in America has never been more important,” said Erik Burbank, vice president of the Keen Effect. “We’re excited to increase the number of boots we build in our Portland factory. We continued to invest in technology to ensure the facility is state-of-the-art and our talented team puts heart and soul into every pair of boots and sandals they assemble. We’re equally excited to expand our relationship with Nester, one of our most trusted partners. Through this partnership, we’ll help ensure Keen socks will continue to be made in America.”
