So I am obsessed with these discontinued boots, Keen brand, Kaci style, tall, black, size 10. Discontinued in 2010. I posted about buying them off this janky scam site a while ago (I didn't try it; good decision on my part). 

I obsessively searched for them, like at least once a day, for several months. I mean like mid-Jan through early April. I searched eBay, Amazon, the web, my local FB garage sale site. They're no where to be found. So I kind of gave up. 

Well I just looked again for funsies and what the fuck do you motherfucking know:

It's even IN MY FUCKING SIZE and it SOLD ON APRIL 12TH?!??!?!?


WHAT THE FUCK DID I DO TO OFFEND THE SHOE GODS SO TERRIBLY?!?!?!?!

Does the company have a fb page? Post on there if anyone has a pair to sell and start leaving comments on their posts about it?

Usually it's because the material became too expensive to generate a profit. I always wondered why McDonald's only had their mcrib during certain times when people would go bat shit crazy over it. Well. It's because during certain times of the year, they get all the pork by products from farmers super cheap (after harvesting season), and they grind up all the unwanted parts, form it into a rib shape, and sell the disgusting shit.

When I made cloth diapers from bamboo fleece or bamboo cotton, it sold in seconds. People love the shit. But when the price shot up 40% for the fabric, and I in turn had to raise the price of the diapers, people didn't love it anymore. So I stopped ordering the fabric and stopped making cloth diapers out of them. Now minky diapers are all the rage, buy once minky goes up too, because it's suddenly popular, it will be the same thing.

I boke down and bought some in the brown color, because you can still get those in a few places. But no black :( 

DJ, that's a good point about the material, because they do use a certain type of leather that I haven't seen used on their other shoes. You just blew my mind.

What blew your mind? The mcrib? It's made of pig heart, scalded stomach, and tripe (stomach tissue). They grind it, mix it, and form it. Fucking vomit.

Haha, no, that I have been searching keen shoes for months and just realized that the Kaci boot is made with different material.


I've always felt the McRib was a beautiful example of everything that is wrong in our country, and you just solidified it. Scalded stomach, what the fucking fuck.
