Launched in the summer of 2006, Keep came into being through the solid combination of timing, auspicious zodiacal forecasts and the deep desire to make classic, clean shoes without the bulk and bother of other brands. Keep is a shoe company, an apparel company, a maker of objects, a curator of curiosities, an amalgam of interests, a way of being, a force, a language, a family and many other things. We aim to keep things personal. We pay attention to the details. We try to keep things simple and pure.
Every day people are bombarded with decisions. One of our goals is to make your choice in shopping easier, and one of the ways we do this is by making all Keep products vegan and cruelty-free. This means no animals were harmed when making our goods. This also means that we produce all of our footwear in factories audited by international, third-party non-profits who monitor ethical working conditions. A Keep representative is on the line of every production.
