The KEEN Terradora Collection: Our OG Women's Hiker
You know that moment. You come around a curve in the road, and there in front of you, center stage through your windshield: a breathtaking view. A snow-capped mountain, a smooth-as-gelato lake, or even a lit up cityscape that makes you audibly gasp with amazement. It’s moments like these that remind us what a truly amazing world we get to experience. From your first ever glacier hike to your favorite urban trail (that one you’ve hiked countless times), our Terradora collection is designed to get you out there, wherever out there is.
Adventure is for every-foot
Feet are sort of our thing. We really care about them. And since each foot is a little different, we know the importance of finding a pair of boots that feels good day in and day out. In fact, that’s how the Terradora collection came to be. Women's hiking boots are often built for men, and sized for women. So we thought, let’s create a killer pair of hiking boots specifically for women’s feet.
We started with a women's last for a more contoured shape, added in a low-density EVA midsole that caters to the female foot, and finished it off with a super comfortable athletic-shoe type feel. Plus we included loads of features for on-the-trail performance like grippy multi-directional lugs, comfy arch support, and notches at the heels to alleviate pressure on the achilles tendon. Now, years later, the Terradora family has grown to include winter boots and sandals. Because it doesn’t matter if you’re out there finally taking that trip of a lifetime with your BFFs or simply enjoying a little day hike, your feet deserve comfort you can count on.
What makes a Terradora hiker part of the Terradora family?
Every time you wear a pair of Terradora 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 more narrow 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 sneaker. The result is a pair of shoes or boots that isn’t limited to just the trail.

Sun-seeking is way more fun when your feet are happy. Our collection of Terradora sandals are ready to feel the rays on or off the trail. Easy-to-adjust ankle straps offer support and the KEEN.ALL-TERRAIN rubber outsole provides great traction. Add in a quick-dry lining and durable webbing straps made from recycled P.E.T. plastic, and you’re ready for rock hopping across creeks, hiking through wetlands, or chasing your kids through the sprinkler.
Terradora Winter Boots
When the cold front comes in, there are Terradora boots for that too. Pull on some cozy wool socks, and reach for a pair of insulated Terradora boots. Basically puffy jackets for your feet, they’re insulated with KEEN.WARM insulation rated to -25°C/-32°F. The KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane and KEEN.FREEZE rubber outsole make taking on cold conditions no big deal. You’re ready to handle icy sidewalks, frozen trails, or yes, even that surprise snowball fight.
Terradora shoes are made for getting up early and hitting the trail or for spontaneously hopping in the car and picking a direction. They’re made for snow days, mud days, and days where the rocks are so hot you can see the heat radiating off of them. But more than anything, KEEN Terradora shoes, boots, and sandals are made for your feet. Created to keep you comfortable, supported, and on the move, heading towards whatever adventure awaits around the corner.
