Here at KEEN, hiking shoes aren’t a nice-to-have, they’re a must-have. Being outside is our way of life, and we know the best hiking shoes are the ones you don’t even want to take off at the end of the day. Terradora hiking shoes definitely fall into that category. From steep graded trails to your neighborhood footpath, the Terradora collection for women is all about getting out there in comfort.
Made for a Woman’s Foot
Every foot is different. (Even two feet that belong to the same person!) At KEEN, we’re always trying to figure out how to make more kinds of feet comfortable. That’s how Terradora got started. The idea was this: Hiking boots are usually designed for men, then size-adjusted for women. We wanted to design a pair of hikers specifically for women.
Since women’s feet tend to be shaped differently than men’s, we started with a women's last (the form a shoe is made on). We added a comfy EVA midsole, and included on-the-trail features inspired by the specific biomechanics of a woman’s foot; things like a grippy lug outsole, comfy arch support, and heel notches to alleviate pressure on the Achilles tendon.
Over the years, the Terradora family has grown to include hiking shoes, winter boots, and sandals. What are you looking for?
WHAT MAKES A TERRADORA HIKER PART OF THE TERRADORA FAMILY?
Every time you wear a pair of Terradora walking boots, shoes, or sandals, you are stepping into years of research, meticulous design, and miles and miles of real-world testing. In order to carry the Terradora name, each and every pair in the lineup has to be:
1. All-terrain ready. Don’t limit yourself to just one type of adventure. Built with dependable traction and grip, each pair has a rubber outsole that gives you the freedom to explore frosty trails or rocky rivers without concern that your footwear won’t cut it.
2. Made for women’s biomechanics. Since women’s feet tend to be slightly narrower than men’s, all the styles in our Terradora collection have a slimmer, women’s-specific fit. Made to support every part of your foot from the ankle, to the heel, to the arch, added stability through the shank and a pressure-relieving Achilles notch help to keep you moving.
3. A modern spin on classic hikers. The Terradora collection takes the durability and support of classic hiking boots and blends it with a modern, lightweight design that fits more like a trainer. The result is a pair of shoes or boots that isn’t limited to just the trail.
