With a wide variety of styles, you’ll be leading the way whether you’re exploring island shores, enjoying a marathon museum tour, or sampling local delicacies at a colorful outdoor market. Don’t let flimsy footwear hold you back—find the best KEEN travel shoes for you and get ready to immerse yourself fully in your travels.
KEEN Travel Sandals
Sandals might seem like a strange choice for travel, but for those who know, they can be a game-changer. Next time you’re waiting in airport security, check out the feet around you. No matter the season or the destination, you will see the KEEN Newport sandal in one of its iterations. Why? Because it’s insanely versatile, very packable, and suited to a wide range of temperatures. Plus, it lets you walk literally anywhere, even through a creek, in supreme comfort.
The Newport is the sandal that started it all here at KEEN. With its protective toe, supportive sole, and barely-there feeling ventilation, it has inspired worthwhile spin-offs for all your travel and adventure needs.
The women’s Whisper sandal, for example, offers a more feminine silhouette in ten gorgeous colors, with all the same functionality of the original. The Rialto shoe is a great choice for more extreme adventurers who need water performance.
Next time you’re booking a flight, think about tossing your KEEN travel sandals in your bag. They might just become your new travel favorite.
KEEN Travel Shoes
Travel shoes take up minimal space in your bag, so you’ll have ample room for your photo gear or duty-free finds. Of course, when they’re also the most supportive, comfortable and stylish shoes you’ve got, you’ll probably want them on all the way from the flight to the sights.
KEEN travel shoes are built to go the distance, and they’re always ready for a hearty helping of spontaneity. With our signature supportive insoles and anatomically engineered designs, you’ll know that whether you choose a ballet-flat style like the Sienna Mary Jane or a hiking shoe like the Targhee boot, you’ll be walking in comfort all day.
Our Targhee III Waterproof men’s and women’s boots are top-rated travel shoes for their neutrally-styled leather uppers, trail-tested soles, and all-weather versatility. When you want a full-on long-distance performer, the Targhee boot is a great option for both urban and rural hiking.
Women looking for a highly-packable travel workhorse that looks cute with everything will want to check out the Sienna Leather Mary Jane. Built with springy, recycled polyurethane and cork, and a natural rubber outsole, this modern flat will give you significantly more support for walking than you’ll find in most standard ballet-style shoes. The Sienna shoe looks great during the day with jeans, and can match any outfit for an evening out (check out the Oxford style for more coverage).
KEEN UNEEK For Travel
Of course, some travelers prefer to make a statement rather than blend in—and for them we have a truly unique option. Crafted from just two cords, a bungee closure and a supportive sole, KEEN UNEEK sandals are ultra-lightweight, highly breathable, and guaranteed to turn heads.
Go for the KEEN UNEEK O2 sandal version if you prefer a more secure fit and some heel coverage or choose the classic for the most freedom and flexibility for your feet. At home everywhere from surf towns to city streets, UNEEK sandals give you great ventilation and a real signature look—plus they pack down to almost nothing. Why not stash them in your bag? They’re so outrageously comfortable and street stylish that you might end up wearing them more than you think.
