According to Keen’s product release statement, the new boot is the result of a three-year research and development program with the aim of “fusing skillful construction and technical performance with classic asthetics.”

It has a nubuck leather upper in a mid cut style that incorporates Keen’s own membrane for waterproofing, while in the lower shoe there’s a direct-inject PU midsole, PU heel cushion and EVA foam footbed for shock absorption.

The men’s version is available in a light tan colour and the women’s is a dark blue. Both are retailing at £139.99 and are available in half sizes.
