The right pair of boots will turn winter into your favorite season if it isn’t already. With insulation, slush-proof waterproofing, and a wide variety of women’s and men’s styles to choose from, KEEN winter boots and shoes will have you reveling in the outdoors, year-round.
KEEN Women’s Elsa Winter Boots
We all grew up with those clunky, oversized winter boots. Sure, they kept every kind of weather off your feet and generated furnace-like heat inside, but they were never what you’d call stylish. The KEEN Elsa footwear line aims to give you the same protection and comfort with a sleek silhouette, suitable whether you’re shoveling the sidewalk or slaying a presentation at the office.
The Elsa boot is available in a variety of upper materials from felt to quilted nylon. With colors ranging from neutral to “statement piece,” there’s an Elsa boot for every outfit. Check out the new Chelsea-style slip-on for under-the-radar technical performance that looks especially great with jeans or leggings.
As with all KEEN shoes, the Elsa has an anatomically designed sole for unparalleled walking comfort. Our KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane repels water while letting your foot ventilate, and the low-profile, sneaker-like design will eliminate that clunky winter-boot feeling. Dance through winter in style with whichever Elsa boot matches your look.
KEEN Men’s Winterhaven Boot
With a full leather upper and a sneaker-styled sole, the waterproof Winterhaven boot provides streetwise weather protection for the coldest winter days. A layer of our KEEN.WARM insulation gives you lightweight warmth, and the seam-sealed oiled leather gives you water resistance that only looks better with age.
The d-ring lacing system is built to last and gives these lightweight winter boots an extra touch of mountain style. Wear them with jeans for the commute, or lace ‘em up to shovel the walk—the Winterhaven boot is the perfect combination of function and style.
KEEN Performance Winter Boots
When you want to get outside and stay there—even when the temperatures drop and the weather goes south, KEEN has a selection of high-performance winter boots designed to stand up to the most challenging conditions.
The top-rated men’s Summit County boot features a tall 6” height, fully waterproof nubuck leather uppers, and targeted insulation (300g around your foot with 450g around your toes) to fend off even the iciest chills. A multi-layered insole helps you avoid losing warmth to the ground, and our KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane lets your feet ventilate when temps warm up.
The women’s Durand boot offers similar features, with 400g of KEEN.WARM insulation in a fully waterproof package. The 6.3-inch faux-fur lined collar helps keep blowing snow from finding its way to your ankles, and our grippy sole will help you stay planted on slippery terrain. Both the men’s and women’s Durand models are built here in Portland, Oregon, from premium materials chosen from all over the world.
The men’s and women’s Revel III boots are the ultimate in winter hiking protection, with our ultra-comfortable hiking sole and fully waterproof insulated uppers. The 200g KEEN.WARM insulation strikes a nice balance, helping keep your feet warm without overheating as you move, and the anatomically designed insole gives you miles of support. Features like the gaiter-ring hook will let you enjoy your winter adventures without worrying about snow getting in when you posthole.
Winter Walking Shoes
A little snow on the ground shouldn’t stop you from getting your daily steps! Winter walking is a great way to get some peace and quiet around the holidays, keep those cookies from adding up, and get some fresh air. Even if you’re just shoveling the walk or getting the dog some exercise, KEEN winter walking shoes are designed to keep you going in confidence and comfort year-round.
The men’s Brixen waterproof slip-on shoe is casually styled in all leather, disguising our technical KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane and KEEN.WARM insulation. With an overbuilt sole to help with traction on slippery surfaces and a supportive, anatomically engineered insole, it will become your cozy daily-driver on cold, dreary days.
On the women’s side there’s the Kaci slip-on, which takes the basic leather clog to the next level. Winterized with water-repellent leather and a plush micro-fleece lining, the Kaci has the soul of a slipper and the performance of a hiking boot, all with a neutral, match-everything style.
Of course, for truly cozy comfort with a grippy sole, the KEEN Howser (men’s and women’s) is the shoe you might find yourself wearing inside and outside. With a variety of upper materials and styles, from quilted to felt, and a gum-rubber sole, the Howser cuddles your feet in warmth while helping you stay planted on dog walks and firewood missions. Get the tall version and layer with your favorite wool socks for the ultimate lodge slipper.
