The right pair of boots will turn Canadian winter into your favorite season if it isn’t already. With insulation, slush-proof waterproofing, and a wide variety of women’s, men’s, and kids’ styles to choose from, KEEN winter boots and shoes will have you reveling in the outdoors, year-round.
KEEN Targhee Winter Hiking Boots
Our most KEEN of KEEN boots, the Targhee collection offers a couple of excellent winter boot options for men: Targhee Lace Up and the even more extreme Targhee Lace High Boots. The lower profile (but still ankle-protective) Targhee Lace boot’s insulation is rated to -4°F/-20°C, with waterproof leather and KEEN.FREEZE rubber outsole. Targhee High Boot covers a bit more of your lower calf and is rated to -25°F/-32°C. It’s waterproof and salt-proof and ready to rock the extreme conditions.
KEEN Women’s Winter Boots
On the women’s side, our Hoodoo III collection offers low, medium, and tall options for all your winter boot needs. Hoodoo Low Zip is made of leather and quilted fabric, 200 grams of insulation, a water-resistant zipper, and grippy outsole for walking on snow and ice.
Hoodoo Lace Up is a little taller with crisscrossing straps for variable tension. It’s made of nubuck leather & textile upper with a thermal heat-shield insole that captures warmth. Hoodoo Tall Boot is the ultimate and tallest version with a water-resistant zipper and insulation rated to -25°F/-32°C.
KEEN Kids’ Winter Boots
KEEN Kids offers a truly wide array of winter boots for the Canadian children and parents who buy footwear for them.
Our Lumi Waterproof winter boots are ultralight, nice and tall, and features our strongest insulation rating at -40°F/-40°C. The Torino II waterproof snow hikers are more of a mid-height, have a breathable mesh lining, and a removable insole.
Hoodoo is a more feminine tall silhouette with insulation rated to -25°F/-32°C. Levo offers lightweight durability in waterproof leather, with insulation rated to -25°F/-32°C. Terradora Winter is a tall boot designed for female feet and rated to -25°F/-32°C. Winterport NEO is another tall winter boot with a waterproof breathable membrane and rated to -25°F/-32°C.
KEEN Performance Winter Boots
When you want to get outside and stay there—even when the temperatures drop and the weather goes south, KEEN has a selection of high-performance winter boots designed to stand up to the most challenging conditions.
The top-rated men’s Summit County boot features a tall 6” height, fully waterproof nubuck leather uppers, and targeted insulation (300g around your foot with 450g around your toes) to fend off even the iciest chills. A multi-layered insole helps you avoid losing warmth to the ground, and our KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane lets your feet ventilate when temps warm up.
The women’s Durand boot offers similar features, with 400g of KEEN.WARM insulation in a fully waterproof package. The 6.3-inch faux-fur lined collar helps keep blowing snow from finding its way to your ankles, and our grippy sole will help you stay planted on slippery terrain. Both the men’s and women’s Durand models are built in Portland, Oregon, from premium materials chosen from all over the world.
The men’s and women’s Revel III boots are the ultimate in winter hiking protection, with our ultra-comfortable hiking sole and fully waterproof insulated uppers. The 200g KEEN.WARM insulation strikes a nice balance, helping keep your feet warm without overheating as you move, and the anatomically designed insole gives you miles of support. Features like the gaiter-ring hook will let you enjoy your winter adventures without worrying about snow getting in when you post hole.
Winter Walking Shoes
A little snow on the ground shouldn’t stop you from getting your daily steps! Winter walking is a great way to get some peace and quiet around the holidays, keep those cookies from adding up, and get some fresh air. Even if you’re just shoveling the walk or getting the dog some exercise, KEEN winter walking shoes are designed to keep you going in confidence and comfort year-round.
The men’s Brixen II waterproof slip-on shoe is casually styled in all leather, disguising our technical KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane and KEEN.WARM insulation. With an overbuilt sole to help with traction on slippery surfaces and a supportive, anatomically engineered insole, it will become your cozy daily-driver on cold, dreary days.
Of course, for truly cozy comfort with a grippy sole, the KEEN Howser (men’s and women’s) is the shoe you might find yourself wearing inside and outside. With a variety of upper materials and styles, from quilted to felt, and a gum-rubber sole, the Howser cuddles your feet in warmth while helping you stay planted on dog walks and firewood missions. Get the tall version and layer with your favorite wool socks for the ultimate lodge slipper.
