More about the Targhee

Applauded across the globe for it’s out of the box comfort, reliable performance and incredible durability, KEEN’s original, award winning hiker is ubiquitous with exploration and continues to be heralded by fans and outdoor adventurers all over the world for keeping the last step of the trail as comfortable as the first for 15 years.

With an updated, rugged look for all terrain adventures, whether day hiking, bagging the national parks, or simply walking the dog, total performance and a flawless fit is guaranteed.  Offering incredible support, stability and traction, allowing you to step out on a variety of terrains in total confidence, uppers have been consciously constructed in environmentally-preferred leather sourced from an LWG certified tannery.

All Targhee models also feature KEEN’s Eco Anti Odor system, which is pesticide free and utilises a safe, naturally occurring probiotic proven to be just as effective in odour control, with none of the downstream environmental impacts of chemical alternatives.

Built for even the most inclement of winter adventures, this work horse is fully waterproof and utilises a safe, effective PFC-free Durable Water Repellent  to repel water and dirt from the uppers.  PFC’s are suspected carcinogens, degrade very slowly and persist in the environment so avoiding the introduction of these compounds by using a safe alternative is a very positive move in protecting the environment.

A KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane locks out the elements yet lets vapour out for all day comfort, even during winter’s cruellest conditions. A leather mud shield offers resilient durability, whilst an all-terrain outsole with 4mm multi directional lugs provides incredible traction on a wide range of surfaces. An ESS shank offers lightweight support through the midsole with an injected TPU heel capture system for stability.

Removable  dual density EVA footbeds promise superb arch support for all-day comfort, whilst a speed hook lacing system allow for a precise and bespoke fit and easy lace adjustment.
