An introduction to Keen’s latest trail shoe

This new release from Keen is a hybrid outdoor sports shoe, supposedly designed for both off and on-road wear.

Its upper is made from a mixture of synthetic fabric and mesh – enough mesh to keep the weight down to a lightweight 600g (for a pair). This should bring a degree of breathability as well. There’s a lot of cushioning too; the shoe combines a compression-molded EVA midsole with a spongy Keen.zorb layer and the heel has an 8mm drop to it. This according to Keen makes it ideal for both the trail and the pavement.

It’s priced at £80 and is available in men, women’s and children’s fits.
