When you’re really serious about hiking, it goes without saying that you can’t trust your experience or your safety to just any old hiking boot. You need something sturdy and supportive that’s capable of seeing your feet through even the lengthiest days on your favorite trails. However, the option you choose naturally needs to look fantastic as well. After all, you put a lot of work into your hiking look, and your ensembles deserve the perfect finishing touch!
That’s where Keen hiking boots come in. Every single option in the Keen catalog features innovative technology you can confidently trust your feet to. (Think top-notch heel support, ultra-tough construction, and metatomical footbeds!) Plus, you’ll enjoy access to original, fashionable designs that you’ll love wearing both on and off the trail. The following are just a few of our favorite items from Keen’s current catalog. Which ones have your attention?
Keen Men’s Warren ESD
The amazing Warren from Keen is so much more than just a hiking boot. It’s a footwear option that’s tough and reliable enough to double as a work boot, so you can rest easy in the knowledge that it’s capable of handling even your toughest, most grueling backpacking excursions. Its classic design ensures that it looks as good as it performs.
Features like a padded collar, a sturdy support shank, and a cushioned footbed will keep your feet comfortable and protected from the beginning of your hike all the way through to the end. Solid ESD construction, a steel toe, and a 90-degree heel have safety covered as well. And did we mention it’s weather resistant? What’s not to love?
Keen Men’s Lansing Mid WP ST
Looking for a reliable but comfortable low-rise hiking boot that’s as versatile as it is practical? Look no further than the ever-popular Lansing from Keen. It looks just as fantastic with your favorite pair of jeans and a tee shirt on the weekends as it does with your go-to hiking gear. Enjoy unbeatable comfort and style both on and off the trail!
The Lansing is also the boot to pick if safety is a major priority for you. Steel toes protect your feet from injury while sturdy ESD construction works to keep static electricity at bay. Reflective webbing adds an extra degree of visibility, as well, so don’t worry if your adventures keep you out close to sundown.
Keen Women’s Kaci
Who says a hiking boot has to look like a hiking boot? For that matter, who says great hiking footwear has to be a boot at all? The women’s Kaci is one of the most popular and enduring items in the Keen catalog, coming back year after year, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s everything you love about a Keen hiking boot in a uniquely charming shoe.
The Kaci is made from full-grain leather that’s weather resistant, the better to keep your feet warm and dry even during the colder, damper winter months. It also comes attached to the same amazing traction, fantastic support, and comfortable footbeds you’ve come to expect from a name like Keen. Last, but definitely not least, its fashion-forward design means you’ll have no trouble whatsoever going from your favorite hiking trail all the way downtown to take care of your errands or to grab lunch with your friends.
Keen Women’s Elsa
Here’s another hot option we’re really excited about when it comes to women’s hiking boots from Keen—the fantastically attractive Elsa! Like the Kaci, it comes complete with all the features you’d expect in a good hiking boot, including tough traction, a durable mesh lining, and odor control technology. However, it also looks like a million dollars.
What’s more, the Elsa is super comfy and cozy—just what you need if you love nothing more than a brisk morning hike even when it’s cold, damp, or snowy out. It comes in an entire rainbow of colors, as well, although we’re personally pretty partial to the black/red dahlia combination.
Of course, these are just a few of the many options Keen has to offer hikers, outdoor enthusiasts, and style lovers this season. Don’t forget to check out the company’s extensive selection of hiking sandals, slip-ons, and more as well. Happy hiking!
