Its classic lacing system provides a secure and snug fit. The KEEN men's Oakridge shoe comes in standard width. The same goes for the women’s model.

Outsole

Thanks to the KEEN Oakridge hiking shoe’s non-marking rubber outsole with 4-millimeter multi-directional lugs, wearers are afforded grip on a variety of trails. It also extends to the front of the shoe acting as a toe bumper for added protection.

Midsole

This shoe gives wearers both underfoot comfort and cushioning through its compression-molded EVA midsole. It also comes with a TPU stability shank for ground stability.

Its removable metatomical EVA molded footbed is also engineered with an emphasis on the big toe (the first metatarsal joint) to provide arch support and cradle the foot’s natural contours.

Upper

The KEEN Oakridge hiking shoe is equipped with a leather and mesh upper. It comes with a breathable moisture-wicking lining that gives a fresh and dry in-shoe feel. The toe rand creates abrasion-resistance and protection. There are tongue and heel pull tabs, allowing for easier on and off.

Nice to know

-Metatomical is a term coined by American footwear brand KEEN. It combines the words metatarsal (name for the set of long bones in the foot) and anatomical.
