Outside is our happy place. From hiking to snowshoeing to exploring new places — if it’s got fresh air and adventure, we’re all in. Here at KEEN, we believe that the time we spend outside doesn't have to be a major event (although it totally can be). Outdoor moments can be as small as getting out for a lunch-hour walk or as big as a multiday rafting trip. No matter how you like to spend your time outdoors, we’ve got a KEEN shoe, sandal, or boot to match.
For almost 20 years, we’ve been making footwear to keep feet happy outside. You could say we’re a little obsessed. Our iconic KEEN fit is adventure-ready and designed with a spacious toe box that makes it easy for toes to spread out and feel good. From durable and grippy outsoles to rugged, long-lasting uppers, we use materials that help protect feet while you’re hiking, camping, beachcombing, or just kicking around the neighbourhood. And because we care deeply about the outdoor places we explore, we take a Consciously Created approach to making footwear, using environmentally preferred and recycled materials whenever possible.

“My favourite way to experience the outdoors is from the trail. I'm looking for a comfy hiking boot that’s waterproof, so I can hike no matter the weather.”
Rain or shine, our women’s Circadia waterproof boot and men’s Circadia waterproof boot are ready to explore. The durable, Environmentally Preferred Leather upper holds up to use and abuse and easily transitions from the trail to everyday wear. Each pair features a KEEN LuftCore midsole designed with high-density foam and a lightweight air-injected core for comfort and support right from the get-go. For traction on the trail, 5mm multidirectional lugs and a KEEN.FUSION rubber outsole make it easy to navigate loose rock or muddy terrain. Thinking you want to hike through fall and winter? No problem. The KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane and PFC-free, durable, water-repellent treatment keep feet dry and comfy all hike long.

“Best waterproof boots out there! I ordered these after becoming disgusted with the waterproof feature of another leading brand. Researched quite a few and landed on these. First of all, they fit like custom boots right out of the box! Truly!!! Loved the look and the detailed stitching. Hiked two hours out of the box and never felt any pinch points or rubbing. The waterproof is on point. Ordered a second pair in a diff. colour. I highly recommend!” — Barbara H.
“I love to get out and explore new places. Got a versatile shoe that can keep up with jam-packed travel days?”
From a morning garden tour to an afternoon spent exploring ancient ruins, busy travel itineraries can be hard on feet. That’s why we make do-it-all travel shoes that look as good as they feel. Two of our favourite options are our men’s Mosey Chukka and our women’s UNEEK SNK trainers.
Made with a supple, Environmentally Preferred Leather upper and an ultra-grippy gum rubber and cork outsole, the Mosey Chukka is a casual, easy-wearing shoe made with comfort in mind. Whether you’re hitting up the antique shops or heading to a nice dinner out, the versatile ankle cut goes well with shorts and slacks alike.
A versatile hybrid trainer, the UNEEK SNK is part shoe and part sandal — the perfect one-and-done travel trainer. The adjustable bungee design makes it easy to fine-tune the fit while you’re on the go, and the high-traction rubber outsole provides grip while you’re busy taking in the sights. Wear them with or without socks; the breathable mesh lining and natural odour control keep feet comfy and fresh all day long.
KEEN fan says:
“After an operation on one of my feet, I now have two different sized/shaped feet. Needless to say, that makes it hard to find shoes that are comfortable and fit properly. But UNEEK sneakers are the solution. I bought my first pair a few years ago, and I now have bought four more pairs in different colours. They are so comfortable and easily adjustable for each foot. People are always asking about them. And I love that the upper part is made from recycled plastic bottles!” — Woo
“Rafting, SUPing, or slot canyon exploration, my idea of adventure always involves water. Which water shoes should I try?”
Love water? We get it. The very first sandal we ever made — the Newport — was designed with water in mind. Years later, we make all types of sandals for all types of splashy and sloshy adventures. Our men's Zerraport II sandals and women's Zerraport II sandals have an open-air design that won’t trap water, so you can move smoothly through river rapids or ocean waves. The adjustable webbing dries fast, so feet stay comfortable in and out of the water. The lugged rubber outsole provides traction on wet rocks and logs, and the closed-toe design protects toes so you can adventure care-free.
KEEN fans say:
“Best sandals yet! Minimal foot coverage, but maximum toe coverage. So far, they've taken me to the beach, to the river, to the pool, and general day-to-day activities with great comfort.” — EPinCT
“Found this product to be a terrific hybrid of the KEEN shoes I loved so much and the other trendier, adjustable outdoor sandals so many people around me wear. They are comfy from the moment you put them on. They fit well — not snug, but not floppy. Running around on the Oregon coast — beach, forest, rocks, mud — these shoes performed above and beyond right out of the box. If/when they wear out, I will hope to buy the same ones again.” — Kate
“When the temperature drops, that’s when I want to get outside! I need a boot that can handle everything from icy hikes to the ski resort.”
Winter wonderland, here we come. If you love blustery days and cold-weather activities, check out our women's Kaci III winter waterproof boot and our men's Revel III hiking boots. Both styles feature KEEN.WARM insulation to help keep feet toasty and warm in low temperatures. When the snow is slushy, a KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane ensures you stay dry and feel fresh hour after hour. Whether you’re heading out for a wintery hike or a day of snowshoeing, each pair comes equipped with a no-slip rubber outsole, so you can play with confidence.

“My new snow shoes. I live in the mountains of Colorado, so I need shoes that can handle snow. These shoes handle it very well. I love the insulation on the footbed, as it helps keep my foot warm while walking in the snow to work.” — Mark D.
Built for comfort, durability, and good looks, KEEN footwear is ready for adventure, no matter the season or the activity. From hiking the moss-lined trails of Ireland to exploring the coastal towns of Italy, we’ve got a shoe, boot, or sandal that’s perfect for however you like to get outdoors.
