In response to the trend of urban meets trail or perhaps the growth in athleisure, KEEN introduces a new women’s specific athletic hiking shoe for Spring ’17. Stylish enough to wear to meet your friends for coffee, the Terradora also features the all-terrain performance you need to take it for a full day out on the trail or even a workout at the gym.
Inspired by KEEN’s brand new workout category — TrailFit — the Terradora is a shoe built to bridge your needs between the gym and the mountain, the backcountry and the city. TrailFit is all about modern adventure fitness – a space where women can pursue a healthy, active lifestyle, from urban boot camps through to fast paced walking challenges.
The Terradora has been built on a women’s specific last with a super-nimble, glove-like fit. The narrower last through the heel adds an elevated level of stability for steep elevations, while the added cushioning hits all the right places for protection and incredible comfort on the trek back down the hill. The Terradora combines the support of a hiker with the liveliness, flexibility and vigor of a trail runner, giving you the performance you need as you migrate between outdoor and urban spaces.
A lightweight mesh upper provides protection and structure with a breathable mesh lining (or a KEEN.DRY membrane in the WP options) keeping your feet fresh and dry in warm conditions. A contoured heel lock provides stability when working out on unpredictable terrain or moving at pace, while a molded collar and dual density PU foam footbed provide incredible comfort. A low density EVA midsole has been designed to provide cushioning and a lightweight ride specifically for a women’s foot, delivering great support and protection during higher intensity workouts.
An all terrain rubber outsole provides reliable grip with multi-directional lugs able to bite into the terrain when traversing more demanding surfaces. Designed in response to women’s individual anatomical needs, a lower collar height encourages freedom of movement, where a cushioned panel reduces pressure on the Achilles.
The Terradora will be available in two versions — the Terradora Mid WP ($140) and the Terradora Low ($130).
