Uneek is pronounced unique. It is also KEEN U spelled backwards. Love the wordplay there. Heheh! It is a new innovative sandal by KEEN which is like its name suggests, unique.
It’s nothing like what we have ever seen or worn before. Using innovative two cord construction, it is said UNEEK is able to mould to your feet for the perfect fit.
Unlike conventional shoes, UNEEK is devoid of traditional process of shoe-making like stitching, gluing and welding. The construction is simple – two cords weaved together to a lightweight sole.
The cords are made of braided polyester with nylon core for increased strength. The free-moving cord junction design allows the upper to move and adapt to the shape of foot.
The lightweight PU midsole delivers durability and comfort while the non-marking rubber outsole with razor siping for improved ground traction.
The sandal is made for the outdoors, so it is not afraid of getting wet! We took our pair to the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park yesterday to try it out for the first time. There was a lot of walking done as we were there for the Sunway Lagoon Walk and Hunt competition.
The sandal is easy to put on and very comfortable. It had the support of the traditional shoes and the free moving cords on the hold the foot perfectly.
You can adjust the tightness using the flexible bungy cord on top of the sandal. Once we had them one, we are ready to take up the challenges in the park.
We walked every terrain that is available in Sunway Lagoon. We climbed stairs, hiked the jungle trail, wondered through the newly opened zoo, strolled on the suspension bridge and of course, jumped into the water at the largest man-made beach in the country.
UNEEK performed brilliantly on land and water! It is the airiest sandal, we have ever tried on. Once we were out from the water, we do not have to take them off to drain the excess water. The sandal dries off quite fast too. After Sunway Lagoon, we went shopping in Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre and by the time we got home, in a few hours later, the sandal is completely dry!
We have no negative feedback for this sandal. Be it outdoor in the woods or urban setting like water theme parks, UNEEK shines with comfort and style. It is so comfortable, you would want to wear it anywhere – a trip to the mall, running errands, picnic in the park etc.
