Hiking is an outdoor activity that requires a lot of time out in the hot sun. It can be tempting to just throw on any sandal because of the desire to wear a breathable shoe. However, with hiking entailing an activity that can sometimes be rough on the feet, wearing a standard pair of sandal flip flops simply won’t cut it. Keen has a number of hiking shoes that have open detail to make them more of a sandal. The open detail allows for air circulation so you feet can breathe but the wide straps keep your feet more protected than standard sandals.
The following are some Keen hiking shoes with open sandal features:
Keen Arroyo II Hiking Shoe – Women’s Gargoyle / Norse Blue 6.0 is a combination hiking shoe and sandal all-in-one. The side venting allows for breathability and the toe bumper feture ensures your toe are protected.
Keen Cascade CNX Women’s Shoes – Gargoyle/Woodbine has pull loops on the back and tongue for a much more convenient method in pulling them on or off. The arch has a contoured support feature and the seamless microfiber lining creates a quality look.
Keen Clearwater CNX Men’s Shoes – Gargoyle/Super Lemon has pull loops on the back and tongue and have a toe bump feature with a gripping traction on the sole. The gargoyle/super lemon colors scheme is a heather grey tone with some bright yellow accents.
Keen Cascade CNX Men’s Shoes – Black/Gargoyle has a rubber sole, multi-directional flex grooves and a non-marking outsole. The black/gargoyle color scheme gives a neutral tone that can be paired with almost any hiking ensemble.
Keen Newport H2 Sandal – Women’s Gargoyle/Sap Green 6.5 has a non-marking carbon-rubber outsole with high durability. The midsole is cushioned for comfort and the toe guards can be a great feature in a hiking sandal.
