Splash Through Anything In Keen Women’s Terradora Waterproof Mid Boots – A Quick Review

Where will your travels take you in the new year?

If you’re looking for footwear that gives you all-day comfort but will also keep your feet dry, whether you’re facing winter’s wet weather or summer snowmelt on mountain trails, there’s a women’s boot that you should add to your travel wardrobe.

The Keen Women’s Terradora Waterproof Mid Boots use Keen.Dry, a proprietary waterproof, breathable membrane that lets vapor out without letting water in. So, perspiration can evaporate away from your feet while the boots keep external water out, as well.

The boots also utilize Cleansport NXT for natural odor control, which allows you to wear them all day for many days in a row without the boots smelling like that’s exactly what you’ve done.

When you’re traveling, you don’t want to lug around a different shoe for every different possibility, and these lightweight hiking boots are just as good to wear as an around-town trekker as they are on the trails.

Mid boots are extremely helpful in supporting your ankles as you walk on varied terrain, but they can sometimes press on the Achilles tendon, or even rub on your ankles, causing discomfort.

These boots have a cushioned ankle panel that takes pressure off the Achilles. Coupled with the overall glove-like fit, these features make the boots comfortable to wear all day.

I’ve worn these boots both at home and on the road, and they’ve taken good care of my feet and kept them dry, no matter the destination.

Whenever I wear them on an outing, I get comments from people who want to know where I got them—even from men. Sorry, guys, these boots are only for the ladies.

The Keen Women’s Terradora Waterproof Mid Boots come in a variety of colors: rhododendron/marsala, blue coral/fiery red, canteen/marsala, dark olive/blue coral, dark purple/purple sage, astral aura/liberty, gargoyle/magnet, raven/rose dawn. They list for $140 on the Keen site.
