Why we chose it: Very comfortable, good eco improvements
The Keen Howser III is kind of a weird concept; it’s basically a slipper that you can wear outside. But we’re completely and utterly sold by it – in fact, we challenge anyone to pull on a pair and not be. These things are super comfortable. So comfortable, and surprisingly practical, that they’re the kind of things you’ll end up wearing a heck of a lot, and not just in the living room or while taking the bins out, but for wearing at camp or around your touring van, or on a quiet weekend away at an airbnb in the countryside. If the weather’s been dry, we’d even be happy wearing these on the morning dog walk.
It’s all thanks to that outsole. It’s a kind of out-of-the-house style one that has a nice bit of traction to it along with plenty of cushioning.
Then there’s the eco aspect, because what we also like about these is that the upper is made from PET plastic – recycled plastic bottles, in other words. You can also rest assured that the anti-odour treatment used here is totally free from any eco-hazardous chemicals.
