KEEN x Loftman and Bamboo Shoots: FAULTLess Footwear with Custom UNEEK Designs

Exciting news for sneaker enthusiasts and outdoor enthusiasts alike! KEEN, the Portland-based outdoor footwear company, has announced their latest collaborations with Japanese brands Loftman and Bamboo Shoots to produce custom colour designs for their iconic UNEEK silhouette.

The UNEEK shoe is a trail shoe and sandal hybrid that blends comfort, durability, and style. Its patented interlocking cord system made of two polyester elastic cords conforms to the foot’s movement for a superior fit, while the microfiber heel provides a soft hold. And with bungee laces for easy on/off wear, the UNEEK is the perfect shoe for any outdoor activity.

Now, KEEN has challenged Kai Kazuhiko of Bamboo Shoots and Makoto Kimura of Loftman to put their own spin on the UNEEK’s design, inspired by the traditional “MADE IN USA” sneaker culture. And the results are FAULTLess!

The UNEEK Bamboo Shoots Edition in Black/Silver Birch and the UNEEK Loftman Edition in Steel Grey/Drizzle are both available for purchase on KEEN’s website. These limited edition shoes are the perfect addition to any sneakerhead’s collection, with their modern interpretation of American-made design from a Japanese perspective.

Both Bamboo Shoots and Loftman are popular retail spaces in the Kanot and Kansai regions of Japan, respectively. Their in-house designers possess a unique home-grown style perspective, resulting in an exciting new take on the UNEEK silhouette.

If you’re looking for a stylish and comfortable shoe for your outdoor adventures, look no further than KEEN’s UNEEK collaboration with Loftman and Bamboo Shoots. These shoes are perfect for hiking, running but most importantly (for us) just strolling around town stunting. And with KEEN’s commitment to sustainability and ergonomic design, you can feel good about your purchase.

These limited edition shoes won’t be around forever, so act fast and elevate your sneaker game with KEEN’s latest collaboration.
