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 trailhead. 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 is a sandal that handles a wide range of wet and dry terrain, from rocky put-ins to desert trails. The Newport 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.
For a more enclosed shoe that is still open on the sides like a sandal, check out the Targhee III sandals. There is also an open-toe version of the Targhee III sandals for people who love to bare their toes to the great outdors.
KEEN Hiking Shoes & Boots
New to hiking or looking for a simplified hiker? Look no further than our Circadia collection.
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 hiking boot or shoe with a women’s-specific fit and tons of technical features, the Terradora Flex hiker, or any member of our Terradora collection is a popular choice. Featuring KEEN.BELLOWS FLEX technology, these shoes are made to take you further.
Our Ridge Flex boots and shoes take the best parts of Targhees and add KEEN.BELLOWS FLEX durability to the fore foot.
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.
If you're looking for shoes to wear for trail fitness, check out our NXIS light hikers, or Wasatch Crest trail runners.
