Keen Voyageur -
Hiking with the Keen Women's Voyageur Hiking Shoes on is like opening the windows and letting cool, fresh air into your stuffy apartment. Unlike many supportive hiking shoes that feel hot and stifling on summer days, the Voyageur Shoes' mesh linings provide breathability for your feet. The ESS shanks on these Keens provide torsional stability as you breeze down the trail, and aggressive 4mm lugs grip rough terrain.


  • Dual density compression molded EVA midsole


  • Woven textile lining.
  • Gently brush the footwear with a dry soft sponge or hand towel to remove loose dirt and restore surface. The use of a leather conditioner is recommended to preserve the original quality of the material. Stains should be treated immediately with a solvent-based leather cleaner. This process may cause slight discoloration to the affected area.

Support and Cushioning:

  • S3 heel support keeps your foot in a neutral position for a natural gait
  • Removable metatomical footbed cradles the foot and provides excellent arch support
  • S3 (shock, suspension, stability) heel dissipates shock, provides impact support


  • Non-marking rubber outsole

Traction and Grip:

  • Nonmarking carbon rubber outsole with 4 mm multidirectional lugs for reliable traction


  • Leather upper with a mesh webbing underlay.


  • Water resistant leather upper
  • Patented toe bumpers protect feet from rough, rocky trails; reduce abrasion on uppers


  • ESS shank provides torsion stability for a secure ride.
  • 4mm multi directional lugs
  • Removable metatomical dual density EVA footbed
Tough, rugged and versatile, the KEEN Voyageur trail shoe delivers all-day comfort on the go. Breathable and flexible, the leather webbing and mesh upper of this women's hiking shoe features ventilation windows and a woven textile lining for built-in climate control on hot or cool days. The secure-fit lacing system with leather eyelets and a heel wrap allows you to customize your level of support, while the lugged rubber outsole of the KEEN Voyageur hiking shoe provides excellent traction and grip in any terrain. Fit tip: This shoe runs a half-size short. KEEN recommends ordering a half-size up from your normal size (if you normally wear an 8, order an 8.5).


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.

Highly ventilated with mesh panels, the Keen Voyageur is ideal for hot summer day hikes. Great traction and stability.

Very comfortable

I researched many hiking shoes before purchasing these, and tried on a number of different brands and models. I have not been disappointed. They came right before I travelled to Paris, and I wore them several days there. While I may have been the only woman wearing such unfashionable shoes there, I was glad I wore them on the days I did. They kept me comfortable and dry.

Since then, I've worn them in a variety of light hiking conditions and they continue to be comfortable and supportive.

I really like the toe box of the Keens; slightly roomier than other brands I tried. The webbing, similar to that in Keen water shoes, allows the wearer to provide some adjustment in the heel area, allowing for an even better fit.

I took the associate's advice and got the non-waterproof version. They were still water-resistant and kept me dry in the pouring rain. He noted that once the waterproof shoes do get wet, they take a very long time to dry.

I tried on two different sizes with medium-weight socks, and tested them on the ramp in the store. I ended up with a full size larger than I wear with my dress shoes. I'm not sure they necessarily run small, rather, I think the socks and the desired toe space drove me to that size.

Most comfortable shoe I have ever owned

These really ARE the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I wear them daily, virtually everywhere - around town, hiking, backpacking, biking, etc. I am Mom/homeschool educator to an 8-yr-old boy and a Golden Retriever, and we are active and busy everywhere - from playgrounds to field trips to backpacking and everywhere in between. There was no break-in period required - fit comfortably right out of the box, and the traction/grip is good on a variety of surfaces. They have finally worn out after a year and a half, and I just bought another pair. First discovered them in spring 2011 while I was having severe issues with plantar fasciitis; the pain disappeared completely within 2 months of wearing them and has not returned :-) I also have wide feet, and have difficulty finding women's shoes that fit properly. Keens' are shaped like...feet! Or at least, my feet - the Voyageurs fit me perfectly, as does my other pair of Keens, the Presidio...equally comfortable, but for street-wear, rather than hiking. My only regret is that the Voyageur is not waterproof (tried the similar Targhee, but it doesn't fit my foot as well). So, it's the Voyageur for me :-)

I have some great hiking boots, but I wanted a lighter pair of touring shoes. If I had not been touring in the cold and snow of December, I would have worn my all-time favorites, my Keen Venice sandals, which I love for the way they surround my feet without binding, without moving around, and yet still letting me feel the ground under my feet. After having tried out several "barefoot" shoes that just didn't work, I found this Voyageur as close as I've come to that luxurious feeling of a shoe with room in the toe box and that fits like a good pair of gloves--respecting all the contours without pinching and without excess bulk. The only nagging worry is that after a couple of days of wearing them on the trail, I know that I am going to have to figure out how to tighten the laces so as to fit the shoes more snugly in the heel without putting too much pressure on the bridge. Details.

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.

The most important thing about these shoes is that they have a wide toe box. I tried on other Keens but found that these had the best toe box for my slightly wide foot. I just returned from a 40 mile hiking trip through the Grand Canyon and have zero blisters from these shoes. My husband DID get several blisters wearing different shoes. Also, I am an ICU nurse and wore these shoes to work before our trip to break them in, although they didn't need it. They were extremely comfortable shoes to wear to work- better than tennis shoes or my Danskos by far. My only problem is that they are so dirty now I don't think I can wear them to work again! I wear a 9.5 in Nike, Asics, Brooks, Saucony.... and I took a 9 in these. Hope this helps!

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 :-)

Keen's Voyager - Absolutely adore this shoe! Right from the box it was comfortable. I wear a size 9.5 and from my experience with Keen, ordered the same size - found a size 10 a bit too large in the Newport shoes. I have had nine knee surgeries and love Keens. I rehabilitated on crutches all last summer in the Newport shoes. The Voyager felt great the moment I put it on and I haven't wanted to take it off yet. The size 9.5 fit perfectly with light or med socks and the shoe gives excellent support. I would tell anyone who has had any orthopedic problems that Keen shoes and sandals are wonderful. I ordered from Zappos on Sat and got them on Mon!

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.

Comfortable shoe-great for wide feet!

Truthfully, this is my first pair of hiking shoes- I've always tried to wear sneakers and was happy to feel the difference in traction that these shoes provide. For people with wider feet, I found Keens more comfortable than Merrells. The only parts of the shoe that are NOT waterproof are the nylon ventilation areas which you can spray and make waterproof. The ventilation is better than in waterproof shoes, especially if you generally wear wool socks or do much of your hiking on warmer days. In addition to using these shoes on trails, they also look great with jeans. Highly recommended!

NIce shoes

I wear these shoes for many hours at a time at work in an animal shelter. I needed durable foot protection that was not too heavy to walk around in all day and these are just that. They were larger than I expected (I ordered my usual size) but I wear thick socks and it's fine. One thing I noticed is that they are very slippery when the floor is wet. I know they weren't meant for "just mopped shelter floors" but I was not expecting that from these shoes! all in all I think they are good shoes.

Negative Reviews:

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...

Neutral Reviews:

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.

designerontherun at on 06/13/2011

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!! :)

Not quite the same

I wore a pair of this shoe over a year (I bought them about seven years ago) and this new pair which I have only worn for two weeks has already stretched out more than the old pair did. New factory? Less cushioning? They're a little different.
