What is good about the Keen Targhee II Hiking Boot
Very comfortable – provides the comfort and support of an athletic shoe and the resilience and protective features of a rough-and-tough hiking boot. Has a sleek and sporty style and a lace-up front for a custom fit.
Waterproof – keeps your feet dry and your step steady thanks to the rugged style of a waterproof Nubuck upper, 4-millimeter multi-directional lugs, and a Keen.Dry waterproof membrane. To keep you treading comfortably on all kinds of terrain, the Targhee II features a Keen.Dry insert. This waterproof membrane offers an additional barrier against moisture yet is breathable enough for all-day comfort.
Heel support – this Keen shoe features a supportive and strong S3 (Shock, suspension and stability) heel structure that absorbs shock, for a stress-free hike. S3 is engineered to support the foot on impact, which dissipates shock, helping to prevent injury to the ankle.
Ankle support – The ESS shank provides torsional stability for a secure ride, while the mid cut height increases ankle support through canyons and over mountain tops.
Metatomical Footbed and EVA Midsole – For comfort and support that won’t quit, the Targhee II features a removable, dual-density EVA footbed that provides arch support by hugging the natural contours of your foot. The compression-molded EVA midsole extends the benefits of the footbed and adds an extra spring to your step.
Reduces foot fatigue – to keep you going longer, the Targhee II has a torsional-stability ESS shank in the midsole. This shank helps to stabilize your foot as you move, minimizing fatigue, so you can enjoy every moment as you push on to the next crest.
Good traction – the aggressive outsole has multi-directional 4mm lugs to spaced wide apart to “bite” into the terrain, giving you more dependable traction on slippery and uneven surfaces.
Toe protection – because rocky objects, roots and debris can trip you up on the trail, the boot includes toe protection that wraps up and over the outsole for thorough coverage of the entire toe bed.
