Adventure loving ladies take note It’s time to get outside and explore the world. With all the many different outdoorsy purchases we make there is one for sure we know that you need to invest in. The versatile and original outdoor footwear brand KEEN has just launched its first ever Women’s athletic hiking shoes, the Terradora.
Designed for Women’s Feet
With Keen’s workout footwear, TrailFit, the idea for this shoe came from a collaboration between women’s gym shoes and outdoor shoes. There needed to be one to bridge the gap between the two, and Keen was ready to do so. Pursuing a healthy, active lifestyle is what this brand stands for, and making that easier for the modern lady is crucial. The shoe will hold up during a boot camp, or a lovely stroll through your neighborhood. These shoes were created for the progressive female adventurer. But, even if you’re not the lady that loves to run through forests and a nature adrenaline junkie, these shoes are perfectly fit for the city stompers as well.
Built for the female form, allowing flexibility and balance, these shoes have mixed comfort with sustainability. The narrow heel aids when heading down a steep hill with an elevated level of stability. The support from the shoes cushioning protects the right places when trekking on bumpy lands. The heel lock is excellent while moving at a quick and sudden pace and the PU foam footbed is there for ultimate comfort.

Another great thing about these shoes is the breathable mesh lining. This keeps feet dry during hot hikes under the warm sun. Since this shoe is specifically for a woman’s foot, a low-density EVA midsole was designed to provide excellent support during intense workout sessions. Plus, the rubber outsole has a reliable grip with its multi-directional lugs when on surfaces that aren’t easy to get through.
My Experience Wearing KEEN’s Terradora Shoes on An Outdoor Women’s Adventure
To see just how well these shoes worked for women on the move, I wore the Terradora on our during our Caving adventure with Htinspires. A group of women came together to challenge themselves in the outdoors. Caving in Beaver Valley certainly tested our stamina and endurance but also the Terradora shoes which performed well when you slipping and sliding through narrow crevices.
After cooling down, we ventured over to Roost Winery for a wine tasting. We picked up some survival tips from Ranger Sarah who has encountered bears and feels totally comfortable being in the outdoors on her own. We also heard an inspirational talk from Judith Kasiama who spoke about Women of Colour and experiencing the outdoors.
“As a woman of colour, I’ve sometimes felt very alone, when many people of colour enjoy the outdoors. Nature is beautiful in the sense that it doesn’t discriminate.” Judith Kasiama, Mec Ambassador
