Designed for women, the Keen Terradora Leather Mid is an all-year-round performance hiking shoe that will have you consistently hitting your fitness goals no matter the terrain. As at home in urban spaces as it is on mountain trails, this excellent boot teams up sporty credentials with instant comfort and nice aesthetics. It’s also becoming somewhat of a regular in the Outdoor 100, after appearing in this year’s spring/summer edition.
For obvious reasons, active outdoor footwear needs to be breathable. And, with that in mind, we’re happy to report that Keen have clearly made breathability a priority here. The breathable mesh lining, for example, keeps the air flowing brilliantly and means your feet won’t have to suffer silently in a stuffy environment.
“You’ll feel right at home in the Terradora the minute you step out the door."
While we’re on the subject of breathability, the Keen.Dry waterproof breathable membrane is also definitely worth a mention. This feature of the boot’s construction works effectively to push all moisture out and maintain total dryness inside no matter what the weather’s doing or how hard you’re working. Stepped in a puddle? Don’t worry about it. The Terradora has you covered.
This boot wants you to get up, get moving and get smiling through exercise. And with more cushioning than a cushion factory as well as arch support and ankle panels – that expertly take pressure off your Achilles tendon – we’re convinced you’ll feel right at home in the Terradora the minute you step out the door. Soft and accommodating on the inside, while still maintaining that all-important athletic edge, you shouldn’t have any problems with blisters here (even if you’re particularly susceptible to them).
Part of Keen’s TrailFit movement, which is all about inspiring women to get outside and synchronise with nature, the Terradora works well and looks good too. Outdoor yoga sessions, mountain hikes, casual strolls about the city; whatever you’re into, this is a boot that can do it all.
