Keen Commuter Bike Sandals

Keen Commuter Bike Sandals – A great shoe for summer biking.
Keens are designed to be versatile and now they are more versatile than ever. The company has introduced the Keen Commuter Bike Sandals. These hybrid shoes feature the same great design and comfort as the Keen Newport Sandals, but with a full length SPD compatible plate and a thermoplastic urethane cleat tap plate.

The Keen Commuter Bike Sandals are great for nice summer day out on the trail, both on the bike and off. The Keen Commuter Bike Sandals allow you to run, walk, bike, and hike just about anywhere. The sole of the Keen Commuter Bike Sandals is made from a non marking carbon rubber which means they’ll last for a long while.

Another nice feature of the Keen Commuter Bike Sandals is that the linings are treated with AEGIS Microbe Shield. This treatment helps to prevent bacterial growth and to fight odor causing bacteria. Both of which cant be a bad thing after a long day on the trail or off.
