If you were in the market for a pair of bike shoes, would this sway you toward Keens?
YES! Besides my New Balance I don't think I've bought a pair of shoes/boots made in the US in a long time. My Sidi's are made in Italy, Crocs made in Canada, Timberland made in Dominican Republic and I think everything else is China. I like my Dr. Martens, but they have been China made for a while (I still have the first pair I bought back in 1996 that were made in England and are much better quality than what is sold now).
