KEEN Elsa II Waterproof Quilted Ankle Boot Style

Don’t let the burly style of the Keen Elsa II Waterproof Quilted Ankle Cleat intimidate you as it can be quite versatile. Pair this ankle cleath with skinny jeans or tights matched with a fit crew-neck shirt, topped with a fluffy jacket or an oversized coat. You can also opt for cuffed relaxed fit jeans and a pullover. And if you're feeling edgy or want to break fashion rules, wear a maxi dress and a coat with these mid-top sneakers.

Notable Features

Engineered to keep feet warm and cozy during cold weathers, the Elsa II Waterproof Quilted Ankle Cleat features the 200g KEEN.Warm insulation. The exterior of the footwear is made of environmentally-preferred premium full-grain leather that is sealed at the seams to ensure that the interior is kept dry. The inside is lined with breathable mesh that has been treated with Cleansport NXT to prevent malodor formation.

KEEN Elsa II Waterproof Quilted Ankle Boot History

The idea for Keen footwear came about after Martin Keen, the founder of the company, grew tired of constantly stubbing his toes while he was out sailing. He wanted a boat-shoe that provided protection for his toes but was still comfortable to wear on wet environments, thus the birth of the Keen Newport. 

When the company moved its operations from Almeda, California to Portland, Oregon, the company expanded its offerings to cold weather footwear like the Keen Elsa II Waterproof Quilted Ankle Cleat. The brand currently offers a wide range of footgear for men, women, and kids for all sorts of weather and environments.

Additional Info

  • Inside the Keen Elsa II Waterproof Quilted Ankle Cleat is a removable polyurethane (PU) insole that’s wrapped in fleece to enhance comfort and warmth.
  • The heat-reflecting Strobel provides a thermal barrier between the foot and the ground.
  • The outsole is made of vulcanized rubber which is durable and grippy even on wet surfaces yet leaves no marks on polished floors.
