When you’re spending long days in the rugged terrain or exploring local trails, you want to know your feet are protected, supported, and dry no matter what nature throws at you. That’s why KEEN hiking boots are designed for all-day comfort and support and come with a whole host of high-tech features to get you through your biggest adventures.
KEEN Footwear Waterproofing
KEEN waterproof boots and shoes all feature KEEN’s proprietary KEEN.DRY waterproof membrane, which allows vapors to escape your shoe while keeping moisture out. That means you’ll be protected when the trail gets soggy.
Our top-rated Targhee styles are available with a wide range of options to suit any trail. The Targhee EXP waterproof mid boot gives you ample support with uppers built to resist everything you can put them through. Performance mesh uppers provide great ventilation, but easily fend off scuffs and tears. The Targhee III waterproof boot delivers that same fit in a low design, for mobility on a wide range of terrain.
The Westward waterproof boot brings modern styling to a classic design, with a supportive high-top upper, the KEEN signature beefy toe, and an anatomically engineered insole designed to cradle your foot over long miles. Suede and canvas construction offers a glove-like fit without stifling your foot, and a stability shank helps provide consistent footing over rough trail.
KEEN Hiking Boots for Men
There’s a reason hikers have always worn boots to explore the mountains. Boot designs offer better ankle support over varied terrain; help protect us from errant rocks and sticks; and help take some of the load when we’re carrying packs. KEEN hiking boots bring our signature protection and comfort to both classic and modern boot designs, to help you range as far as your feet can take you.
The Gypsum II mid boot is specially designed to give you support when carrying a heavier backpack. The shank and heel work together to help stabilise your foot and provide consistent footing. Multi-directional lugs on the sole offer better traction, and the waterproof mesh and leather uppers balance ventilation with weather protection.
Karraig is a waterproof backpacking boot featuring board-lasted construction for stability and a heel brake for extra support on downhill paths. Galleo is a classic European-made hiking men's hiking boot offering long-lasting comfort and support, with enhanced cushioning and a full-length stability shank. An extra heel-lock eyelet helps keeps your feet in place. Feldberg is a durable, waterproof boot, built for all-day comfort, and is also European-made. A dual-density footbed and stability shank provide cushioning and support, and a rugged, higher-traction sole helps keep you on your feet on tough paths.
KEEN Men’s Hiking Shoes
For shorter days and less technical trails—or hikers who just like a little more mobility—hiking shoes are a great option. KEEN offers many of the same burly soles and durable upper materials you’ll find in our hiking boots in low-top styles for this purpose.
The top-rated Targhee II waterproof shoe is built to withstand nasty weather with a waterproof leather upper and lugged outsole for better traction. Our standard comfort and durability features include our anatomically engineered insole and an outsole designed for torsional stiffness.
Our Venture waterproof hiking shoes for men have a lightweight upper, locked-in fit, and higher-traction outsole. It’s faster, lighter, and sleeker, and purpose-built to perform in the outdoors. Or try the Wanderer: a waterproof membrane adds extra weather protection to a versatile boot, crafted from waterproof leather and suede. The contoured heel lock stabilises your foot, and the cushioned insole offers all-day comfort.
The Gypsum II versatile hiking boot has you covered for the day or the weekend. Waterproof leather and mesh keep your feet dry and free of debris, and the heel stabiliser and shank system help balance your backpack.
KEEN Insulated Hiking Boots for Men
Not every hike takes place in the glorious sunshine of summer, and for shoulder seasons (or even snowy climates) you might find yourself wishing for a little insulation around your feet. Luckily, we have a wide range of waterproof and insulated hiking boots and shoes to help keep your feet toasty even when there’s more than a little chill in the air.
Our KEEN.WARM insulation offers durable, lightweight loft to trap heat. You’ll also want to look for our three-layer thermal heat shield insole, which helps reflect heat back toward your foot, instead of leeching cold from the ground.
The Revel III boot cuts a little of the insulation for high-output endeavours, offering 100 grams around your foot, along with our thermal heat shield sole. With a gaiter hook ring, the Revel III is designed to stand up to your most extreme hiking expeditions.
Dip back into our Targhee collection to find hiking and insulation appropriate for winter weather. Targhee High Lace waterproof boots are bolstered it with insulation, cold-weather traction, and a taller profile. From city to trail, it takes rugged durability to new heights. Targhee Lace Boot fits slightly lower on the ankle but brings the same performance technologies to bear.
