Who should buy the KEEN Saltzman WP
The KEEN Saltzman WP is a good pair of hiking shoes for those who do not mind having extra weight on their foot. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking shoe that's ready for the trail whether it's sunny or pouring outside.
- Prefer a hiking shoe that is waterproof and breathable.
- Prefer a hiking shoe that grants excellent arch support and cushioning.
Grant ground stability on bumpy grounds
Enabling this hiking shoe to grip on various terrain is a solid rubber outsole. Its aggressive lugs grant ground stability on bumpy grounds.
Slip-resistant and provides toe protection
The space in between the boots shed off stuck debris to prevent slips. Additionally, it is equipped with KEEN Protect which acts as a toe bumper, shielding the foot against accidental bumps.
The KEEN Saltzman WP features a polyurethane (PU) midsole for durable cushioning and compression resistance. It houses a nylon shank for support and underfoot rigidity.
Excellent arch support
To provide arch support, it comes with a metatomical dual-density EVA footbed. It follows the contours of the foot for a natural and comfortable ride.
This low-cut day hiking shoe has a mesh upper to offer optimal trail comfort. It is lined with the proprietary KEEN Dry, a waterproof barrier that prevents water intrusions.
Breathable and abrasion-resistant
It also promotes breathability. Overlays on the entire base of the upper amplify protection and abrasion resistance.
Prevent heel slippage
Its contoured heel lock is connected to the lacing system which helps prevent heel slippage. Its lace-up closure mixes metal eyelets and fabric loops for fit management.
Easy to wear
Donning and doffing the shoe is made easier through the handy pull tabs at the heel and top of the tongue.
