Updates to KEEN Targhee Vent Mid

  • The Targhee Vent model that is included in the KEEN Targhee collection is designed to bring breathability during warm-weather hikes. Its upper is constructed to allow the foot to breathe and keep a cool in-shoe feel.
  • An EVA foam plus the brand’s ESS shank renders lightweight support and cushioning. And when it comes to traction, the KEEN.All Terrain rubber outsole is in charge.

Size and fit

A hiking boot for men and women, the KEEN Targhee Vent Mid fairly runs true to size. Hikers can customize the fit through its lace-up closure.

The metal hook enables quick adjustment while the second pair of eyelets work with the injected TPU heel-capture system. As users tighten the laces, it also creates tension around the heel, adding stability.

Outsole

Providing traction on ground surfaces is the KEEN.All Terrain rubber outsole. It has 4 mm multi-directional lugs that are widely spaced to channel water out, preventing slips. The toe and heel zone are multilayered which deliver grip during ascents and descents. KEEN.Protect is a brand-owned feature added to the toe area to shield the foot from accidental knocks.

Midsole

This mid-cut day hiking boot features a dual-density, compression-molded EVA midsole which houses an internal shank. This combination provides lightweight cushioning, shock absorption, and underfoot rigidity. The brand also incorporated an ESS shank, placed under the heel, for added stability. Atop all this is a bi-density EVA footbed which follows the contours of the foot for enhanced support and walking comfort.

Upper

The KEEN Targhee Vent Mid has an upper primarily made of water-resistant oiled nubuck leather. It is designed with ventilation panels to promote a good exchange of airflow inside the boot. It is lined with a breathable mesh too which works with the Cleansport NXT to maintain a fresh, odor-free environment.

Its lacing system is comprised of combination eyelets. A heel strap assists in easy on and off, and its cushioned tongue and collar deliver comfort.
