The Keen Women’s Terradora II includes hiking footwear comprising a waterproof hiking boot, a vented hiking shoe, and a hiking sandal. Keen describes this boot as being designed especially for a woman’s biomechanics while maintaining exceptional support and comfort.

The central portion of this Keen Women’s Terradora II review will focus on the boot version. However, to provide you with a more thorough guide, we’ll also take a look at the key features of the shoe and sandal versions.

Keen Women's Terradora II Review

Upper Design

The particular materials and elements used in the design and construction of this boot reflect the Keen company’s values. Keen is committed to making sure the products are safe for customers, employees, and the environment. You can buy the Terradora II in either a leather upper version, featured above, or with a mesh, upper featured below. Leather hiking boots tend to be more robust, longer-lasting, and cradle your foot for greater support.

The Terradora II with the mesh upper also comes with synthetic overlays is designed to provide additional support. The boot has cushioned ankle panels for extra comfort. The lining is a breathable mesh, which is lightweight and smooth, which improves internal comfort.

Keen Women's Terradora II Outsole And Tread

The Terradora II has a chunkier look than its predecessor yet would still be classified as a lightweight boot. Contributing to the more substantial appearance of the boots are the outsoles – a clear improvement. The outsoles offer greater tread yet still maintaining excellent flexibility.

The updated outsole is constructed using the KEEN.ALL-TERRAIN technology, together with The 4mm multi-directional lugs, improve traction on and off the trail path. Overall, you get a higher-traction grip when you need it the most.

Comfort & Fit Of The Keen Terradora II Hiking Boot

Much like many modern hiking boots and shoes, the Keen Women’s Terradora II boot is one that you can slip on straight out the box and go on a hike. For me, they are super comfortable, with no rubbing on the sides of your feet. What’s more, you’ll get plenty of foot support – especially with the mid-height boot version. Trail protection and support come from a dual-density EVA midsole and removable insole, supporting the arch and ankle. Hikers with wider feet will feel comfortable in these boots.

We rate the cushioning panels around the ankles of the Terradoras, which are comfortable over long distances. The Terradora II’s will wick away sweat and keep your feet cool, especially when matched with a breathable pair of walking socks. All in all, the comfort level is pretty good. They are also lightweight, so your feet don’t get as tired or achy on longer walks and hikes.

Sizing of The Terradora II

In general, we have found that the Keen Terradora fit pretty true to size, but a few other users have recommended going half-size up. Now, that all depends on how you wear your hiking boots. For example, are they classing themselves as a size 6, even though they like to double-up on stocks or wear a liner? Or are they basing it on wearing super thin, lightweight socks?

When we comment on fit and sizing, we base the size on wearing a standard mid-weight pair of hiking socks. We also like to allow extra room for a little bit of foot swelling too. With this in mind, if you wear two pairs of socks or a sock liner, then you might want to go a little bigger.

Waterproofing Capabilities Of The Keen Terradora II

The Keen Terradora II has a waterproof coating like the previous model, which keeps your feet dry when hiking in wet weather. These boots feature KEEN.DRY, a waterproof, breathable membrane that allows vapor out without allowing water to get inside the boot.
