Win these KEEN hiking boots and other goodies worth over £200

Author: Ollie Rooke

When you strike out into the unknown, taking the path less travelled as you search for new sights and experiences, there’s one piece of equipment that you’ll always need to be up to the task.

A good pair of hiking boots can be the difference between an unforgettable day of hiking and exploring, or one spent nursing your feet as you painfully hobble back to civilisation. That’s where KEEN’s Targhee III Waterproof hiking boots come in.

Since 2003, the American footwear designer and manufacturer has built a reputation for producing well-priced, premium-quality outdoor boots and shoes. The Targhee III are no different, offering the same high quality at a seriously affordable price.

To celebrate their release, we’ve teamed up with KEEN to offer you the chance to win a pair of the boots, alongside a host of other KEEN outdoor goodies, and you can find out how to enter at the bottom of this article. But first, let me tell you about the new Targhees.

KEEN Targhee III Waterproof hiking boots

Immediately it’s clear these boots are built to be rugged and robust enough to help you tackle anything you could encounter during a day exploring the outdoors.

The chunky outsole features deep, multi-directional lugs to keep your feet from slipping on whatever terrain you find yourself scrambling up, across, or through. A chunky leather mudshield extends across the front of the boot, protecting the vulnerable toe from any damage that blazing a new trail could bring.

The midsole is supported with an ESS shank that provides torsional stability and protection, while a TPU heel cup guarantees a snug, no-slip fit, that will keep blisters at bay.

Comfort on the trail

KEEN has also worked hard to ensure the rugged construction doesn’t compromise the wearer’s comfort, with a number of features designed to make them genuinely nice boots to wear for extended periods.

The brand’s own KEEN.DRY waterproof membrane has never failed us on other boots in the range, (developing technologies in-house is one of the ways KEEN manages to keep its prices so affordable), and it also features on the Targhee III boots to keep your feet dry in downpours, bogs, and streams.

A PFC-free Durable Water Repellent keeps water and dirt off the outer, without shedding chemicals, while KEEN’s own anti-odour system keeps the inside fresh while utilising a naturally-occurring probiotic instead of chemical alternatives that other brands turn to.

With conscientious features such as these it’s clear that, while KEEN are in the business of making footwear to protect wearers from the outdoors, they’re also focussed on protecting the outdoors with their footwear.

A range of well-priced options

With a list of features, and KEEN’s reputation for high quality, durable boots, you’d be forgiven for thinking the Targhee III hiking boots would be priced at the mid t0 high end of the market.

Remarkably, they actually come in at the low-end, with prices ranging from just £109.99 to £119.99 for a pair of mid-cut boots, offering a serious bargain with the competition in mind. You can check out the full collection HERE.
