Revel III from KEEN offers insulation and comfort

The KEEN Revel III uses a compression-molded EVA midsole to for cushioning and shock absorbency. It works with a thermoplastic-polyurethane (TPU) shank to make the boot more rigid and resistant to contorting. The KEEN men’s Revel III is equipped with a Heat Trapolator to enhance its insulation. It has three layers of heat-trapping materials sandwiched underfoot to trap warmth inside the boot.

KEEN Revel III heel support

Its women's version also features the Heat Trapolator with the addition of a thermal heat shield footbed. Apart from providing arch support, this component also grants a boost in underfoot warmth. It uses a combination of wool and a thermal foil barrier to keep the user’s foot toasty.

KEEN Revel III’s robust design

KEEN Revel III KEEN.Dry membrane

The KEEN Revel III’s rugged look is owed mainly to its nubuck leather upper. It is lined with a KEEN.Dry membrane to seal water out while keeping the boot breathable. A 200g KEEN.Warm layer is embedded within the upper gives lightweight insulation in cold temperatures.

KEEN Revel III lacing system

The footgear’s closure system employs a round lace, metal eyelets and hooks for fit management. 

KEEN Revel III ring hook for gaiter

A ring hook is also incorporated into the upper to hold the gaiter in place.
