MADE FOR US
Designed by women, for women
We know the importance of finding shoes that feel good day in and day out. That's why we created a collection of hiking boots and shoes specifically for women's feet and biomechanics. Meet the Terradora family.
KEEN Terradora Shoes and Boots for Women
Here at KEEN, hiking shoes aren’t a nice-to-have, they’re a must-have. Being outside is our way of life, and we know the best hiking shoes are the ones you don’t even want to take off at the end of the day. Terradora shoes definitely fall into that category. From steep graded trails to your neighborhood footpath, the Terradora collection for women is all about getting out there in comfort.
Made for a woman’s foot
Every foot is different. (Even two feet that belong to the same person!) At KEEN, we’re always trying to figure out how to make more kinds of feet comfortable. That’s how Terradora got started. The idea was this: Hiking boots are usually designed for men, then size-adjusted for women. We wanted to design a pair of hikers specifically for women.
Since women’s feet tend to be shaped differently than men’s, we started with a women's last (the form a shoe is made on). We added a comfy EVA midsole, and included on-the-trail features inspired by the specific biomechanics of a woman’s foot; things like a grippy lug outsole, comfy arch support, and heel notches to alleviate pressure on the Achilles tendon.
Over the years, the Terradora family has grown to include hiking shoes, winter boots, and flex styles. What are you looking for?
“I’d like a pair of comfy hiking shoes that let my feet breathe.”
Planning a hot and humid hike? Check out the Terradora II Vent shoes. The reinforced mesh upper supports you as you move while also allowing heat to escape. And it has a sporty look that won’t seem out of place while you’re in town.
FANS SAY: “The most comfortable hiking shoes I’ve ever owned! They have great traction, which is very important when hiking in California on dry, rocky, and loose soil.” - Pam
“I need waterproof shoes that will keep my feet dry.”
Whether you’re taking your dogs on a snowy winter hike or foraging for mushrooms in the woods, you need to make sure your feet stay dry. Living in the PNW, we know a thing or two about moisture. That’s why we built the Terradora Flex waterproof boots. They’re made with a KEEN.DRY breathable membrane and we finished things off by adding KEEN BELLOWS.FLEX technology to the fore foot, so every step feels easier.
FANS SAY: “The tread makes me feel like I have four-wheel drive on my feet — nice and secure. I like that they are relatively lightweight and not clunky. They are pretty warm too, which is a must for chilly walks.” - Mandy
Pro tip: This pair also comes in leather — check out the Terradora II Leather Waterproof boots.
Looking for a low-cut shoe that’s still waterproof? Try the Terradora Flex hiking shoes. They protect your feet from the elements just like the boot version, but with a casual, sneaker-like look.
FANS SAY: “I usually wear running shoes, but switching to these has been a huge comfort upgrade. Walking through wet grass with the dog no longer equals wet feet, and they are soooo supportive and comfortable.” - Jean
Terradora shoes are made for women who love getting up early to start a new adventure. They love packing up the car, throwing some granola bars in their bag, and finding their bliss in the great outdoors, whatever the weather. And most of all, they love being on the move without thinking about their feet. That’s what a great pair of shoes can do for you.
Introducing Terradora Flex
3x easier flex
KEEN BELLOWS.FLEX in the forefoot requires less energy to bend, making every step feel easier. Hike happier… longer.
Women's hiking boots are often built for men, and sized for women. Not Terradora Flex. We designed the contoured fit and cushioning for your feet and biomechanics.
We gave our #1 women’s hiking boot more “hike,” with a grippier, more rugged outsole that resists side-to-side torsion plus air-injected foam that supports and cushions every step.
KEEN.FUSION construction for long-lasting durability and comfort for miles and miles. The upper is fused directly to the sole without toxic glues or solvents. Fewer chemicals, fewer shoes in landfills.
BEHIND THE DESIGN
Why women love our OG women's hiker sneaker
Women's hiking boots are often built for men, and sized for women. So we thought, let’s create a better fit with a hiker sneaker built specifically for women’s feet.
