Keen and Sherpa Adventure Gear have joined forces on a new edition of their Innate travel boot for men and women for the autumn/winter 2019 season, which follows a similar release for spring 2019. The new product is PCF-free and uses premium nubuck leather certified by the Leather Working Group. It uses Keen's own membrane and an all-terrain rubber sole, among other features. From the sale of every shoe, which carries a price tag of €159.95 in Europe, €15 will be donated to Room to Read, a charity that seeks to improve literacy and gender equality in the developing world. The initiative coincided with the International Literacy Day on Sept. 8. The partnership between Keen and Sherpa seeks in particular to offer a better future to Nepalese children, with a goal of teaching 1,000 children to read and write in one year.
