KEEN Men’s Voyageur Hiking Shoe Review 2019

Rugged waterproof hiking shoes are great. But at the time they become stifling for your feet. You can almost never wear those shoes for your daily commutes. This is where you need something that is almost as durable as those shoes but without the stifling nature. KEEN Men’s Voyageur Hiking Shoe is aiming to be one such shoe.

Features of the Keen Voyageur Hiking Shoes

KEEN Men’s Voyageur Hiking Shoe has been designed for not only the rugged outdoors but also for everyday commutes The shoe is made with a combination of several materials all with the sole intent of providing toughness coupled with added comfort.

The upper on these shoes are made from a combination of leather and nylon. The use of leather enables these shoes to be tough and ready to handle the elements while the inner mesh lining provides the much-needed airflow. This combination of toughness and comfort is what makes this shoe suitable for both hiking and everyday life.

KEEN Men’s Voyageur employs an unmarked rubber outsole. This outsole provides excellent cushioning and adequate energy return and that’s not all. The rubber outsole also has aggressive lugs. The 4mm multi-directional lugs bite into almost any terrain and keep you on your feet no matter how slippery the surface is.

Talking about keeping you on your feet, the Metatomical EVA footbed found in these shoes combined with a heel that measures approximately 2″ make sure that your feet experience no strain while waking.

Other notable features include a Contoured heel lock and a Torsion stability ESS shank which make this shoe ideal for rocky terrain as well as everyday concrete.

The toe box on KEEN Men’s Voyageur is wider and taller than most other similarly positioned shoes. Being wider, people with wide feet will definitely feel the difference as there is more room available for them to move their feet.

Lastly, the Voyageur comes in a variety of sizes and they fit true to size.
