Why Buy KEEN Kids’ Shoes
KEEN Kids' shoes are designed to give your little one a foot up on exploring the world. With quality construction and many of the same features you’ll find in our adult shoes, KEEN believes that kids deserve the best when it comes to the outdoors. With easy on and off closures, plenty of waterproof options, and our fantastic higher-traction soles, KEEN Kids’ shoes will give them the solid foundation they need to build a lifetime in the outdoors.
KEEN Trail-Ready Kids’ Shoes
When it comes to introducing them to your favorite trails, you want to make sure their experience is comfortable, liberating and fun! That’s why we design every KEEN Kids' hiking shoe with the technical features they need and the bright colors they’ll ask for.
The kids’ Targhee Waterproof shoe or boot offers a supportive, higher-traction sole and durable leather upper for all-terrain exploring confidence. The bungee closure gives them the independence of putting their shoes on themselves and makes it easy for you to help—the little kids’ version also has a hook-and-loop strap for added security.
For a girl-specific option check out the Terradora shoe, which was designed (like the women’s version) to support a lower-volume girls’ foot. The waterproof breathable membrane will help keep weather out while allowing her feet to breathe on warm days, and the eye-catching colors are fun enough to jazz up any walk.
KEEN Multi-Purpose Kids’ shoes
Sometimes you just need a shoe that they can wear everywhere, because sometimes they only want to wear one shoe everywhere. We’ve designed a handful of our shoes to pull double-duty, and they shine whether they’re on the playground or trail, or in gym class.
The Chandler CNX features KEEN’s most lightweight and flexible sole, which is perfect for kids who love to run around. With sleek, athletic styling, the Chandler is also waterproof thanks to our breathable membrane, which makes it a great choice for shoulder seasons when you’re not quite sure what the weather will do.
The Hikeport shoe is another option that offers a slightly more rugged construction for kiddos who play hard. With our signature toe bumper for added protection and an easy bungee closure, the Hikeport is a sporty option suitable for wherever their adventures take them.
KEEN Easy-On Kids’ Shoes
For younger kids and toddlers, it’s especially important to have a shoe that’s simple to take off and put on. KEEN has a selection of kids’ shoes designed specifically for quicker morning departures, with a wider opening and easy closures.
Check out the Moxie Mary Jane for a sporty and adorable shoe designed to keep up with your youngster’s growing curiosity. With a grippy sole, breathable (and machine-washable) mesh upper, and simple hook-and-loop strap closure, the Moxie will give your little girl the comfort and confidence she needs to expand her horizons.
For cooler weather, we love the Sprout double strap, which comes with a double hook-and-loop strap closure for quick and painless on and off. A structured sole gives them more support on varied terrain, and the soft leather uppers look adorable in any color.
