KEEN "Gypsum II Mid WP" Women's Leather & Mesh Hiking Boots

Sturdy design that helps you tread the path less taken. Made with utility in mind, you're ready to set forth with a leather and mesh upper, designed to lace-up easily and allow a customized fit. We’re also a huge fan of the water-resistant finish, helping keep your feet dry even as you hike through the damp ground of your local park. Textile lines the interior while a padded insole, which is removable, delivers support through your wanderings. Add a rubber outsole with texturing and you’re ready to tackle anything that comes your way!
