KEEN Voyageur Mid's supportive cushioning

The Voyageur Mid by KEEN features a flexible dual-density compression-molded EVA midsole that is shock absorbent and has adequate cushioning for all-day comfort. The metatomical footbed delivers optimum underfoot and arch support. Its removable EVA insole is custom shaped to accommodate the contours and arches of the foot. It can be replaced with the user’s preferred orthotics.

The stability features of the boot

A built-in ESS shank offers a stable, secure ride in various trail conditions. The S3 (shock, stability, and suspension) heel support structure delivers its purpose by rendering what it stands for. It acts as a cushy barrier that disperses shock, provides a stable stride, and suspends any unnecessary ankle movements contributing to a more balanced gait and lower extremity control.

How the KEEN Voyageur Mid maintains in-shoe freshness

The Cleansport NXT creates a fresh feeling. It’s an odor control coating that contains natural microbes found in nature. Every time these microbes come in contact with sweat, they become active and produces an enzyme that breaks down those stinky watery discharges, leaving the odorless water and carbon dioxide behind.

Lightweight upper

The upper is made of leather and mesh designed to be durable and water-resistant. The mesh panels act as ventilation ports allowing sufficient airflow and breathability. The moisture-wicking textile frame also eliminates any water build up so the foot can stay dry and comfortable.

A secure-fit lace capture system with sturdy leather eyelets enable the fit customization. A contoured heel lock helps lockdown the feet while its webbing pull loops at heel and tongue allow easy donning and doffing. The KEEN Voyageur Mid also features a gusseted tongue that protects the foot from debris and gunk infiltration.
