KEEN Women’s boots combine effortless style with high-tech features to take you from the trailhead to the office and everywhere in between. KEEN’s proven line of comfortable, supportive women’s hiking boots have pounded trails all over the world, and our versatile city-styled waterproof boots will become an instant staple in your fall and winter wardrobe. With KEEN’s signature quality materials and construction, your feet will be comfortable and dry no matter where your adventures take you.
KEEN Women’s Waterproof Boots
The majority of KEEN women’s boots get our proprietary KEEN.DRY waterproof membrane, which allows vapor (i.e. sweat) to escape while keeping external moisture (like slush, rain, mud, snow) away from your toes.
The best part about the KEEN.DRY membrane is that you won’t notice it until you need it. It’s so thin and breathable that you get the benefits of waterproofing without feeling like you’re wearing rubber rain boots or bulky snow boots.
KEEN’s most popular waterproof hiking boots include the Targhee collection, which support better trail protection in a relatively lightweight package. And if speed and fitness are your goals on the trail, the Terradora boot offers a dual-density outsole and waterproof breathable upper—all built on a women’s specific last for a better fit. For multi-day trips, the Pyrennees boot offers the rugged durability of a full-grain leather upper, while the American Built (using quality materials sourced from around the world) Durand Polar boot ups the ante for lower temps with insulated uppers and a thermo-shielded, slip-resistant outsole.
KEEN Women’s Casual Boots
Of course, waterproofing shouldn’t be reserved for the burliest trail boots. After all, city life can be just as demanding, especially in the winter. That’s why we have a selection of cozy, waterproof women’s boots in a variety of styles meant to elevate any outfit—even on the most dreary days.
Our popular Elena boots now come in a variety of colors and heights, from the new chelsea-style ankle boot, to a textile-accented classic boot. Go neutral with earth tones, or choose a pop of color to accent your look. Every Elena boot is weatherproof without being bulky—and they’re so comfortable we’ve started calling them our “sneaker boots.”
If you’re looking for a more sleek, go-with-everything look, the waterproof Presidio mid and tall boots offer a classic all-leather style and a reliable slip-resistant outsole. Dress them down with jeans or pull them on with leggings and a skirt—you’ll feel protected from the elements without looking like you’re about to scale Denali.
KEEN Women’s Boots Materials
As with all of our boots and shoes, KEEN takes care to select premium leather and sole materials to ensure that your boots will go the distance. Our vulcanized slip-resistant rubber will keep you feeling planted on any terrain, and Leather Working Group (LWG) certified leather uppers ensure we use leathers from the most environmentally-friendly manufacturing practices.
Look for features like KEEN.DRY, our proprietary waterproof, breathable membrane; and KEEN.WARM, our sustainable charcoal and bamboo-based insulation. Our warmest winter boots (like the Hoodoo III, Durand Polar and Revel III) also get a special thermal-shield footbed, which gives you socklike warmth on the surface, support in the middle, and a foil barrier to help keep body heat surrounding your feet, instead of dissipating over cold surfaces.
Certain KEEN Utility work boots offer safety features, such as aluminum or steel toe options, and electrical hazard (EH) resistant outsoles. For instance, our popular women's Seattle 6-inch boots feature a waterproof leather upper, lightweight aluminum toe, and 90-degree heel. The Detroit XT boot offers a steel toe with a lower profile for lighter-duty days.
The KEEN Comfort Difference
KEEN has always taken comfort seriously, so you know that when you choose a KEEN boot it’ll get you through the day with better support and less foot fatigue. Whether that means helping keep your feet dry when you’re slogging through slushy winter streets, or helping keep you supported when you’re bagging peaks in the heat of summer, KEEN women’s boots will do the job with style.
The KEEN signature toe cap helps protect you from errant rocks on the trail, and our versatile weatherproof features will keep you hiking happy through the worst conditions. The insole is designed to support your arches and the natural contours of your feet for less fatigue over long days. Our city boots give a touch of mountain style to any outfit while packing a whole host of features—and they’re light and comfy enough that they might replace your favorite sneakers.
With a range of styles and features, KEEN women’s boots add a touch of adventure to every occasion, whether you’re commuting to the office or trekking across the globe.
