The Keen Voyageur Hiking Shoe for Women in Dark Earth/Ensign Blue keeps your feet cool under pressure with it's mesh lining for continual airflow. The rugged outsole finds a sure grip on rough terrain with multi-directional lugs. An ESS shank is built in for torsional stability, letting you keep your mind on the task at hand.
The Voyageur by Keen, like its cousin the Targhee II, is a rugged cruiser, but with its windows down and sunroof up for ventilation. Stripped of its KEEN DRY™ in favor of mesh lining, the Broken Top allows for more ventilation on hot and cool summer days. The aggressive outsole has 4 mm lugs to bite into the terrain, providing excellent traction. The ESS Shank provides torsional stability for a secure ride.

I ordered these in the Charcoal/Sterling Blue. I love them!! I find that Keen shoes run large. I originally ordered a size 7 and my feet swam in them. I returned them for a size 6 and they fit well. They were comfortable from the moment I put them on. I've worn them on several short hikes (2-3 hours) over rough terrain, rocks, roots, logs, up and down fairly steep inclines, etc., and they were very comfortable. I've also worn them on a day-long mall outing (yuck) because they are so supportive and comfortable, and they served me very well there too. I've taken to wearing them for walking on the track in the evenings instead of my sneakers! I love the way they look and I love the way they feel. I would definitely recommend them. Also a word for Backcountry...I love them...great service, helpful, free and very fast delivery, easy returns.
Like the title says - these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I have wide feet, making it hard to find comfortable women's shoes. I have two different styles of Keens (the Voyageur and the Presidio? ) that I wear daily and I love them! Even suffered from severe plantar fasciitis for more than a year - nothing worked until I switched to the Keens. They fit my feet perfectly and apparently give the precise support my feet need, as the PF was completely gone within a few months of switching. I wear the Voyageurs everywhere - hiking, biking, daily activities...they are my go-to shoe. I can walk in them all day without fatigue or pain :-) I may wear Keens for the rest of my life :-)
I am so impressed by the rugged bottom sole of this hiking shoe. It keeps me from slipping down gravel trails. I feel so more stable in these shoes than I have felt in any other hiking shoes/boots I've ever owned. I did want to comment on the size comments I have read. I wear a 9.5 and bought these in a 10, thinking they ran big as many have said. But my feet swam in the size 10. I am ordering a 9.5 now as my size 10 were burned up in my house fire. The Keen sandals I would recommend ordering a 1/2 size up, but not this particular shoe/boot - order your normal size.
I loved these shoes when I bought them 6 months ago but they are already falling apart. Will not buy Keen again. Usually buy Merrill...
I loved my old pair of Voyageurs so of course I bought a new pair after my old ones went to shoe heaven. The new pair are good but not great, they lack the same cushioning in the heel/ankle area, so it doesn't hug the foot as much. Previously I could using normal socks and it felt comfortable, but now I have to wear thick socks. Shame... i really did want to love them.
These shoes were great for stability, support and overall ruggedness. However, I have little/narrow feet and these suckers gave me blisters a lot of them! I tried breaking them in (just like my smart boyfriend told me to), but even after several multi-day backpacking trips, I still got blisters. If you've got normal to wider feet I would definitely recommend. Happy hiking!! :)
