Size and fit

This winter hiking boot from KEEN is crafted for male and female adventurers with regular-width feet. It comes in a range of half and full sizes. The gear’s lace-up closure system permits fit customization. Moreover, it runs relatively true to size.


Preventing outdoor lovers from losing their footing over uneven ground or slippery surfaces is the Revel III’s non-marking outsole. Its dual-climate construction is able to withstand both cold and warm weather conditions. The outsole’s multi-directional lugs contain self-cleaning channels to optimize traction. Also, its front section extends towards the upper to heighten durability and protect the toes from stubbing.


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.

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


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.

The footgear’s closure system employs a round lace, metal eyelets and hooks for fit management. A ring hook is also incorporated into the upper to hold the gaiter in place. Its padded collar and tongue promote comfort while keeping debris out. Also, a pull tab is positioned at the collar’s back to facilitate an easy on and off.
