Portland, OR – January 18, 2011 – The KEEN booth (31183W) at Outdoor Retailer, January 20-23, 2011, will be hopping with opportunities for visitors to play, learn, do good and purchase KEEN products. Mark your calendars for:

Conservation Alliance Happy Hour-Fundraiser
Join the fun and purchase shoes and socks with 100% of funds raised to benefit The Conservation Alliance and Winter Wildlands Alliance's SnowSchool Program. Features styles include Women's Snow Mass Low Boot, Women's Concord Crew Lite, Men's Anchorage Boot and Men's Bellingham Crew Mid. Plus, enter a raffle to win a KEEN gear package and $500 toward the winter adventure of your choice. Friday, January 21, 4 pm to 6 pm.

Frisbee Dog Demos
Take a 15-minute recess break from show and join KEEN and JD Platt's K9 Kings for some Frisbee dog fun. JD Platt and his K9 Kings have appeared on Greatest American Dog and travel around the country bringing smiles to the faces of dog lovers everywhere. Performances are scheduled at 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The Heat Trapolater Machine
See KEEN's latest technology come to life! The Heat Trapolater Machine takes three layers (honey comb, wool felt and thermal heat shield) and combines them to create footwear with 25 percent more warmth than a standard 200g insulated boot. This new technology, when combined with KEEN.WARM, provides 360 degrees of lofted insulation and works a lot like the insulation in the attic space of a house.

Making Socks on the Spot
Check out how KEEN re-engineered socks. The KEEN Hybrid.Sox machine is making a special appearance at the show, crafting socks on the spot. Always thinking outside of the box, KEEN runs its knitting machines counter-clockwise to create seamless, fantastic-feeling Hybrid.Sox. Best of all, KEEN socks are specifically engineered for right and left feet, providing bunch-free comfort and the perfect fit.
