The KEEN Women's Voyageur Hiking Shoe is definitely a good quality shoe. I bought a pair of KEEN shoes and was a little hesitant at first, I have a low arch and did not know how they would feel. I was not disappointed. So, if you are shopping for shoes and are asking, 'Will these KEEN shoes be good enough?' I can answer and definitely give you "yes" as an answer. You will not be disappointed either in quality or comfort.

KEEN Women’s Voyageur Hiking Shoe


These KEEN shoes offer a lot by way of quality and styles. In the paragraphs below I will just be covering the KEEN Women's Voyageur Hiking Shoe. This particular style is great for people who lead very active lives.

How to choose KEEN Women's Voyageur Hiking Shoe

Breathability

Usually, the KEEN shoes are equipped with a waterproof barrier inside to prevent the feet from getting wet. However, the KEEN Women's Voyageur Hiking Shoe has the waterproof barrier replaced with a mesh lining that allows air flow to keep the foot cool. For long hikes, this is a must for me. Having air flow can prevent sweaty feet which can lead to foot odor, which is something everyone would like to avoid. This one feature is one of the main things I look for when purchasing a shoe for warm weather hiking and the KEEN Women's Voyageur Hiking Shoe provides it.

Stability

Hiking shoes need to be equipped with outsoles that provide you with a stable step. The Keen Women's Voyageur Hiking Shoe provides that. This hiking shoe has multi-directional lugs on the bottom that grip terrain, preventing the chance of slipping that is a hazard in shoes not equipped with this feature. There is also an ESS shank built in for stability. So having soles that are not likely to slip combined with stability makes this shoe a great product for hiking.

Moisture Wicking

No one likes having wet, smelly feet, which can happen if your feet get hot while hiking. Once the lining of the shoe is wet odors can develop that are not in any way nice. With the KEEN Women's Voyageur Hiking Shoe this is not a problem. The lining of this shoe is made of a wicking material that draws the moisture away from your feet which can, in turn, cut down on any foot odor. A great feature for any shoe.

Product care

Now, this shoe also has leather on the outside that requires special care to keep clean and neat. To remove dirt, you can use a soft bristle brush to gently dust the material. For stain removal, a circular motion with a gum eraser followed by a light brushing will do the job. If the stain is bad, you can use a little vinegar mixed with water on a cloth, but this could discolor the material. Even with this type of cleaning the care of this shoe is very simple.

Cons

  • How do you list cons when you cannot find anything wrong? I guess the only thing I can say is a con is the fact that these shoes are not available in the local stores yet, but that is not even a con for the shoe quality, features or style.

FAQ's

  • Q: Do these shoes come in wide width?
  • A: No. Currently, these shoes do not come in the wide width but the KEEN shoes often run a little wider than average. This is possible because of an elastic bungee lace.
  • Q: Will these shoes really keep my feet dry?
  • A: Yes. With breathable mesh outside and a moisture-wicking lining inside your feet will stay cool and dry. Also, there is odor control in the foot-bed which will deal with any odor from what little damp there may be.
