The KEEN Voyageur Mid Hiking Boot is a breathable and supportive hiking boot most suitable for dry hikes. Although lauded for it comfort, especially in the arch and toe box, one of the most frequent complaints is stress and blisters on the heel, although the boot may improve after breaking in. While these boots are not made to be completely waterproof, prioritizing breathability, they are quick-drying and can stay warm in cold temperatures. The major weakness of this boot is its limited durability, as these shoes wear down quickly at the soles.
