Designed for women, the Keen Terradora Leather Mid is an all-year-round performance hiking shoe that will have you consistently hitting your fitness goals no matter the terrain.
All in all, I would recommend the Keen Terradora as a mid-weight walking boot for autumn or spring walks if you want something very comfortable.
High performing, good-looking and comfortable straight out of the box – I wouldn’t expect less from Keen.
After getting the lacing just right on each foot, and wearing these trail shoes on a long and satisfying hike, I can truly say that you can't go wrong with a pair of Terradoras if you're looking for moderate support, all day comfort, and dry feet.
For pretty much everything else, you have my word that these are a very decent choice.
- The Terradora Leather Mid Waterproof has a women-specific construction and is designed for hiking all year round. Its nubuck upper has mesh and KEEN.Dry linings which render comfort and protection.
- Providing a cushioned and stable ride is a combination of low-density EVA midsole and ESS shank. A bi-density PU foam gives arch support. On the other hand, a brand-owned outsole makes the boot grip on various terrain types.
The Terradora Leather Mid Waterproof is a day hiking boot for women. According to KEEN, it runs narrow. This hiker also comes in whole and half sizes. The lace-up closure of the boot allows customization of overall fit and volume.
Granting a grippy ride to users is the KEEN All-Terrain rubber outsole. It has 4 mm multi-directional lugs which grip on to most types of terrain. The grooves in toe and heel areas are designed to deliver traction on uphill and downhill slopes, respectively.
This mid-top, waterproof leather version of the Terradora model from KEEN comes with a low-density EVA midsole. This foam cushions each strep without adding weight to the user’s foot. For underfoot rigidity and arch support, it is equipped with an ESS shank and a dual-density PU foam footbed.
This leather hiking boot grants protection and comfort on the trails through its nubuck leather upper lined with a breathable mesh lining. To protect against wet encounters, it comes with the KEEN.Dry membrane, a waterproofing barrier which also allows the foot to breathe. The toe and heel areas are scuff-proof, thanks to the added leather reinforcements.
The brand’s designers also optimize comfort by incorporating a cushion panel. This feature relieves the pressure off the Achilles tendon for a more comfortable flex. Also, its contoured collar adds a cozy feel.
This gear uses a combination of webbing, grommets, and hooks in its lacing system. The cord loop near the ankle area acts as a heel lock (when users tighten the laces) to enhance stability. Lastly, a pull tab is placed at the back of the boot to assist in on and off.
