KEEN Terradora Women’s Hiking Boot – A Quick Review

I’ve tried out a lot of hiking boots. Heavy ones, stiff ones, clunky ones, rugged ones…you get the idea. 90% of the time, I hike and explore in a trusty pair of trail runners, or my favorite Lowa travel shoe.

  • Designed Specifically For Women.
  • Lightweight Hiking Boot Doubles As An Around-Town Trekker.
  • Glove-Like Fit And A Cushioned Ankle Panel.
  • Delivers Flexible Freedom And All-Day Comfort.

But for that other 10%, we women need a strong, sturdy hiking boot that provides both protection and flexibility. It needs to be lightweight and soft, but also able to withstand boulders, creek crossings, and dusty trails.

The Keen Terradora waterproof boot proved its worth to me all spring, withstanding hikes on muddy Oregon trails and travels across the wet Pacific Northwest.

It’s designed specifically for women (you won’t see a male equivalent) and is comfortable enough to become an all-around trekker shoe on your travels, if you don’t have room to pack two pairs of shoes.

While the Terradora boot provides ankle support, it’s not stiff, and it has a nice cushion around the ankle panel.

You get natural odor control built into the material, multi-directional lugs, and the Keen-Dry waterproof membrane that is breathable even while keeping your feet dry.

I love that the Terradora has a stylish finish to it with the weaved fabric look, and the girly side of me likes that it comes in a ton of fun colors, including the dark purple/sage I tested and six additional.

If you don’t want or need the protection of ankle support, there’s also a Terradora shoe in both non-waterproof and waterproof for $120 and $130, respectively. They’re even more lightweight, and still give you the rugged sole protection of the boot. Whichever you try, enjoy summer hiking and trekking!
