The best hiking shoes are the ones you don’t want to take off when you reach your destination, whether it’s your tent or the footpath. KEEN hiking shoes and boots are built to take you wherever you wander, with our supportive, higher-traction soles and premium technical materials to keep you dry, comfortable, and hiking happy for seasons to come.
KEEN HIKING SANDALS
Originally designed for use on boats, the KEEN Newport walking sandal for men, women, and kids is a sandal that handles a wide range of wet and dry terrain, from rocky put-ins to desert trails. The Newport water sandal is beloved for its toe bumper, supportive, protective sole, and easy-venting waterproof uppers. The bungee closure offers an effortless anatomical fit that flexes with your foot as you walk.
The men’s and women’s Arroyo Sandal offers an even more protective take on the classic, with added mesh material in the upper, and leather reinforcements to the traditional webbing. With extra heel and toe protection along with a grippy sole, the Arroyo is an easy choice for canyon trails or other mixed-terrain travel.
KEEN HIKING SHOES
Our top-rated Targhee Hiking Shoe offers a burly leather upper and a stiff but lightweight internal shank for extra support on the trail. With reinforced eyelets for the laces and 4mm multi-directional lugs, the Targhee is as durable as it is stable. The premium nubuck leather uppers are water-resistant, but choose the waterproof version of the Targhee to get our waterproof breathable membrane if you plan to be hiking in variable weather.
For a lightweight hiking boot or shoe with a women’s-specific fit and tons of technical features, the Terradora Hiker is a popular choice. The mesh uppers offer great breathability while the flexible but supportive sole gives you confidence on a variety of trail types. Check the leather version for our most durable performance, or the colourful mesh version for a more lightweight daily hiker; both are fully waterproof with our breathable waterproof membrane for your biggest objectives in trail fitness.
The men and women’s KEEN NXIS hiking trainer offers similar lightweight performance with subtle technical features for fast and light adventures. Designed around our grippiest sole ever and an extra-secure fit system, the NXIS trainer is a hiking shoe that is suitable for fast hiking and will keep you planted without slowing you down.
KEEN HIKING BOOTS
Most KEEN hiking shoes are available in a “mid” or boot option, which gives you the extra ankle support and protection you may prefer for longer stints on the trail. Our boot-only options are also available for more demanding trips when a more supportive option is required.
For a lightweight hiking shoe you can wear to the office, check out the NXIS Waterproof Hiking Boot. With a lightweight upper, locked-in fit, and higher-traction outsole, these waterproof hiking boots are built to pounce onto the trail with you, featuring a lightweight upper, locked-in feel, and higher-traction outsole.
For adventures deep in the backcountry, dependable comfort is key - try the KEEN Ridge Flex Waterproof Hiking Boot. This waterproof backpacking boot features board-lasted construction for added stability plus a heel brake for extra support on the descent.
Our Revel IV Winter Hiking Boot offers superior warmth, traction, and protection against the elements with 200g of insulation, heat-trapping materials underfoot, waterproof membrane, and deep multi-directional lugs. You can wear the men and women's Revel winter boot all winter long, both for work and play, from taking care of winter business in the yard, to building a snow man with the kids or heading out on a snowshoeing expedition.
