Keen’s boundless catalog of performance footwear has always kept things geared toward proper comfort through outdoor activities. To no surprise, the WK400 delivers more of the same, as it adheres to the most popular activity of all: walking.
The unique new steppers sit atop a high-traction rubber compound that ensures the perfect grip with every step, while its multi-directional lugs take that one step further. Then, its bottom half is bolstered with a full-length nylon plate for all maximum stability. What’s more, though, is the brand’s patented KEEN.CURVE tech serves as a significant difference maker. This unique geometry results in a constant curve from heel to toe, resulting in consistent propulsion that makes you want to walk for days on end. Best of all, its countered fit will only grow more and more personalized with each step you take.
Moving away from the shoe’s lower end, its upper is constructed using breathable performance mesh rounded out with TPU overlays for durability’s sake. For enhanced protection, the all-day shoe boasts Eco Anti-Odor tech for all-natural smell resistance to ensure it can be worn repeatedly without lingering scents. Style-wise, the shoes are available in various colors, including the striking black-and-yellow design pictured here.
Keen isn’t necessarily daring you to walk a mile in its shoes, but we suggest you try it out. The WK400 is available on its webshop for $165.
