KEEN Terradora II Waterproof updates

The featured hiker picks up from where the first-gen Terradora Waterproof left off. Take a closer look at what new stuff this shoe has in store for you below:

Even more support. With its proprietary heel-locking system and springy-yet-durable shank, you can negotiate extra-rocky terrain in this upgraded shoe with better footing.

Improved outsole. KEEN engineers made its lugs pointier and more multi-directional, allowing for more bite over soft or loose soil.

Revamped closure. Its lacing system has been upgraded in such a way that lets you lace up with a firmer heel lockdown.

KEEN Terradora II options

This low-top waterproof offering is not alone in the Terradora II family. Indeed, it has two close relatives in the Terradora II Waterproof Boot and the Terradora II Vent.

The former is the mid-top sister of the featured shoe, which provides even more ankle security besides full waterproofing. The latter, on the other hand, is the most breathable of the bunch (as its name suggests).

Takeaway: If you hike trails that remain moisture-free virtually all year long, the Terradora II Vent is a good option. Otherwise, you cannot go wrong with either of the two waterproof Terradora IIs.
