Parents know that kids' shoes need to be durable. Between rowdy recesses, PE, and family adventures on the weekends, little feet put plenty of stress on shoes. That’s why KEEN uses the same materials and construction techniques you’ll find in our grown-up models, to keep your kiddos comfortable and focused on the outdoors—not their feet.
The Newport collection of watersandals for kids is available in a variety of styles. The Newport H2 is a supportive sandal that can take on anything. An adjustable Velcro strap lets kids put these sandals on themselves, and the quick-drying fabric is perfect for the water - but also out of the water. Newport NEO H2 has a sole that can handle any terrain. It feels active, sporty and lightweight, with durability that makes this sandal ideal for all things rough and tumble.
The lightweight materials and bungee closure in the Newport collection are especially convenient for little hands and feet, giving them a shoe that’s easy to put on and won’t weigh them down. And for the world’s many irresistible water features (you know: gutters, puddles, streams—basically anything wet) the Newport dries quickly and is machine washable.
WALKING SANDALS FOR GIRLS
Our KEEN Moxie collection for kids offers some easy hiking options. The Moxie kids' sandals offer performance and style that you need for adventure. With a comfortable construction, cushioned footbed and toe box, your daughter won't have to worry about watching her step when she's out and about.
The Greta Waterproof Winter Boot for kids features supportive cushioning for a girl's foot, as well as a waterproof leather upper and insulation down to -32° so she can go outside in any weather.
SHOES FOR THE KID WHO’S ALWAYS ON THE GO
We all know that kid who never sits still—and if you’re lucky enough to be the parent of one you know they need a shoe that can keep up. The Chandler CNX play shoes for kids is designed to be as lightweight as it is durable, with our most flexible, non-marking sole and legendary KEEN construction, for agile performance that won’t fall apart.
And despite what they may believe, not even the fastest kids are impervious to water, which is why the Chandler CNX has them covered with a waterproof membrane to keep toes dry. Paired with an easy-on bungee closure, it’s a shoe kids will reach for every day before heading off on their next adventure.
GIVE THEM ADDED WATERPROOF PROTECTION
For days with poor weather, kids need a shoe with a little more waterproofing and protection. Our choice for the job is the Hikeport Mid Strap Waterproof hiking boots for kids, which gives them a chukka-style coverage without forcing anyone to struggle with laces.
Constructed with our waterproof, breathable membrane and a sturdy sole, the Hikeport boots for kids will be your go-to for shoulder-season adventures and wet walks to school. It’s protective enough to keep them dry, but far superior to a clunky winter boot when it comes to playing tag. Whether you’re hoping to simplify your weekend packing list or just keep them comfortable through a day’s worth of activities, the Hikeport is an easy choice.
SHOES FOR YOUR MINI-ME
The KEEN Targhee is a premium hiking boot for all conditions and trails—and the kids’ Targhee waterproof hiking boot looks and performs just like yours—the only difference is our easy-on bungee closure. The TPU heel-capture system helps increase stability on varied surfaces, and the lugged sole gives them better traction than a standard trainer.
Of course, the kids’ Targhee hiking boots offers the same waterproof membrane and partial-leather uppers as the adult model, for protection from the elements and lasting durability. For family backpacking trips, day hikes and everyday adventures, the Targhee is a kids’ shoe that will make them feel like one of the grown-ups.
THE SANDAL FOR THE WHOLE SUMMER
We support outdoor play and want to provide kids comfort when exploring nature. We also love wearing the same sandal all summer long. That's why we developed the Verano hybrid summer sandal for kids with an open toe that girls can wear on any occasion - especially when playing outside. The Verano children's sandal for girls has two adjustable straps that ensure a firm fit and can be optimally adjusted to fast-growing feet. The upper is made of quick-drying fabric and is machine washable.
