KEEN<br />Terradora<br />Summer 2017

Whether traversing off-the-grid trails or pounding pavements on city streets, the new generation of adventure-seeking women know that the right shoe makes all the difference when getting their kicks in the great outdoors. In response to the needs of the progressive female outdoor athlete, KEEN proudly present the Terradora – a women’s specific athletic hiking shoe which infuses style, all terrain versatility and performance with a precise and comfortable fit.

Designed and built with an uncompromising focus on women’s fit, the Terradora showcases KEENs commitment to the evolution of adventure footwear for women. Inspired by KEEN’s brand new workout category, TrailFitTM, the Terradora is a shoe built to bridge women’s’ needs between the gym and the mountain, the backcountry and the city. TrailFitTM is all about modern adventure fitness – a dynamic space under the sky where women can pursue a healthy, active lifestyle, from urban boot camps through to fast paced walking challenges. The chance to get the pulse racing and clear the mind. TrailFitTM workouts allow women to enjoy the places they play and the new Terradora empowers women to challenge themselves mentally and physically in this new dynamic fitness space.

Women’s specific performance footwear featuring a super-nimble, glove-like fit, the Terradora has been built for the female form. The narrower last through the heel adds an elevated level of stability for steep elevations, whilst added cushioning hits all the right places for protection and incredible comfort on the trek back down the hill. Combining the support of a hiker with the liveliness, flexibility and vigour of a trail runner– that’s the Terradora. The solution to provide the performance and versatility that women demand as they 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 feet fresh and dry in warm conditions. A contoured heel lock provides stability when working out on unpredictable terrain or moving at pace, whilst 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, whilst a cushioned panel reduces pressure on the Achilles.

Characterising hybrid footwear at its finest, the Terradora fuses the love of working out in the great outdoors with a sense of everyday urban adventure. Featuring a streamlined design, on trend styling and a diverse colour palette, the Terradora works as well with jeans as it does with technical outerwear.

The Terradora is available in mid, low or a WP version with KEEN.DRY for the most inclement of conditions. Prices start from €119 in the low, through to €129.95 in the low WP and €139.95 in the mid WP.
