Why Buy KEEN Men’s Boots
KEEN men’s boots are built for all-day comfort and low-key mountain style. From the backcountry to the job site (and maybe a night out in between) we’ve got you covered with premium materials, breathable waterproofing, and sturdy soles for wherever your adventures take you.
KEEN Men’s Hiking Boots
KEEN men’s hiking boots offer our proprietary waterproof membrane, called KEEN.DRY. It allows heat and vapor to escape while keeping the weather out, which means your feet will stay warm and dry no matter how many stream crossings you encounter. You’ll find the KEEN.DRY breathable membrane in our burliest trail hikers, like the insulated Revel III, as well as more lightweight options like the popular Targhee III waterproof mid boot. The membrane is so light and effective that you probably won’t even notice it until you need it.
KEEN hiking boots also come with the KEEN anatomically engineered insole, which is designed to support your foot without restricting mobility. You won’t feel like you’re “dying to get these boots off” at the end of a long day. In fact, along with our protective toe caps, you’ll probably find that your feet feel less beat up, even after some serious miles.
Our popular Durand mid hiking boot is made right here in Portland, Oregon, using materials sourced from around the world. It has a protective, grippy sole with waterproof nubuck leather and for your longest treks. A stiff shank helps you feel surefooted, and the durable metal lace guides will resist breakdown.
KEEN Men’s Travel Boots
When you’ve got limited space in a suitcase, the shoes you choose to bring with you are important. We’ve found that the best travel boots can pull double (or triple duty), on trails, exploring city streets, and even going out on the town.
Our latest Eastin Lace-up boots rise to any travel occasion with environmentally preferred leather upper, a non-marking EVA midsole, and arch support. It’s designed to be a versatile boot, but with classic styling it would be just as well-suited for hostel-hopping or city sightseeing. In other words, it looks like a stylish, casual boot with all the features you’ll need for a good day outside.
If you’re leaning more toward a trail-heavy adventure, the rugged Targhee III waterproof mid boot offers great lightweight ventilation without sacrificing that weatherproof versatility. Pack these for your next hut trip and you’ll start each day with dry, happy feet (and if you venture into town for an espresso you won’t look like you’re fresh off the trail).
KEEN Men’s Casual Boots
If you’re looking for KEEN’s legendary comfort with a lighter dose of mountain flavor, we offer a line of casual boots for urban adventures. 'The 59' II boots come in three rich, full leather colors for an effortless, outdoors-inspired look that will only get better with age. For cooler, more variable weather, the Winterhaven boot offers light insulation, waterproofing, and an outsole for better traction. It’ll add just a touch of sophistication to your look—even if you’re still wearing your climbing pants when you get to the bar.
If you’re looking for a lightweight leather option, the Grayson Chukka boots feature our Luftcell dual-density polyurethane sole, which is infused with air bubbles for less weight and more cushion. The Explore waterproof sneaker boots also offer comfort and versatility for long days in variable terrain.
KEEN Men’s Winter Boots
When the seasons change, you don’t want to be caught off-guard. If it’s time to upgrade your footwear for colder weather, KEEN has a wide selection of insulated, non-slip, and waterproof winter boots to help keep your feet warm and dry. Whether you’re out collecting firewood in the snow, marching through slushy streets, or lounging around the lodge after a long day on the mountain, there’s a winter boot to suit your needs.
For warm and waterproof casual boots, try the Anchorage III slip-on boots. They are made of waterproof suede and feature a KEEN.Dry waterproof, breathable membrane as well as KEEN.Warm insulation rated to -25°f/-32°c.
When the mercury really starts to plummet, you’ll want the Targhee High Lace Waterproof boots stashed in your mudroom. These classically styled hiking boots are temperature-rated down to -25°F/-32°C, thanks to our KEEN.WARM insulation, along with a three-layer heat-shield insole, which work together to surround your feet in cozy warmth.
With outsoles designed to stay soft for better traction in the cold, and leather uppers treated to resist salt, these are the boots you’ll want for those early-morning shoveling missions (and pretty much any other subzero winter adventure).
