Keen Children's Shoes was founded by Charles R. and Joann Keen in 1961. Their first store was located in Broad Ripple on the old north side of Indianapolis. Mr. Keen saw the need for a more personalized service -oriented children's shoe store, which catered to the footwear needs of parents and their children. In 2000, the store was moved to Carmel by their son Rusty. In 2006 the store manager, Lisa Flowers, bought the store and started broadening the shoe selection to give customers as many options as possible! Today, Keen Children's Shoes carries 20+ brands of shoes and socks, each with many styles to choose from!
