The KEEN Glenhaven Mid is available in US men’s sizes, from 7 to 15. Many users said that it has a roomy toe box, but the mid-area feels tight. To compensate for this possible inconvenience, it is recommended to add a half size from the wearer’s measurements. This adjustment may also help in making the foot entry and exit easier.
It has a bungee closure that offers a snug fit. Regular laces are also included. Similar to most KEEN shoes, the KEEN Glenhaven Mid’s footbed is removable.
At first glance, the KEEN Glenhaven Mid has a look of a formal shoe, primarily due to the smooth suede upper that lacks any ornamental details and visible stitchings. The similarities end at that, because of the contrasting color of the midsole and outsole. Still, some shared that they use the high-top with their school attire. Because of its earthy hues, the shoe looks best when paired with dark jeans.
Outstanding arch support is guaranteed by the KEEN Glenhaven Mid, thanks to the metatomical footbed design. Natural odor control on the interior is expected, due to the utilization of Cleansport NXT.
The KEEN Glenhaven shoe line is one of the growing footwear collections by the brand. It started with the Glenhaven Explorer, which gained good remarks. Soon after, its follow-up model, called the Glenhaven Explorer Leather, has also been well-received by consumers. The success of these shoes paved the way to other Glenhaven shoes, and among them is the Keen Glenhaven Mid shoes.
The shoe company KEEN has a relatively short history. It entered the industry in 2003 through the efforts of American businessman Martin Keen. Taking on the road less traveled, the company started its journey into relevance with a sandal, not a shoe. This footwear is labeled the Newport Sandal, which offers remarkable protection on the toes. Inspired by the success of the sandal, KEEN started manufacturing well-made outdoor shoes and lifestyle kicks.
- The shoe was designed in Portland, Oregon.
- Colorways released so far are Black, Dark Olive / Black Olive, and Steel Grey / Magnet.
