The much lauded, female specific Terradora hiking shoe on test is ideal for quick, off road trail adventures. Think cold walks in urban trails and parks rather than wintry ascents on the Ben.

Created to inspire women to get outdoors no matter whether they’re city, mountain or country-based, the enormously popular Terradora hiking range has been designed for women from the ground up. 

With 5 styles to choose from - including the new Terradora Leather WP available in both a mid and low version – the Terradora range reinforces KEEN’s TrailFit fitness movement and delivers a stable, flexible and comfortable off-road ride.

The Terradora Pulse Mid we tested is a very well made, exceptionally comfortable, rugged mid that functions like a technical trainer. Perfect for women looking to get in a quick ramble on the Downs or a speed hike around the park, the lightweight flexible Terradoras offer great grip in the wet and will keep your feet dry on a rainy winter’s day thanks to the KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane. 

The Terradora is an immediately comfortable shoe thanks to the combination of the dual density PU foam footbed and the cushion panel that relieves pressure on the achilles. While comfort is king in this market, what makes the Terradora so special is that it offers way more than just a relaxing underfoot ride. The integration of the ESS stability shank demonstrates KEEN’s desire to make the Terradora a technical shoe and it certainly feels well made and supportive right out of the box.

In terms of fit, KEEN advise that the Terradora runs about ½ a size big but we found the UK size 6 we tested to be absolutely spot on. Flexible without feeling sloppy, the Terradoras moved well out on the trail and offered a secure yet unrestricted off road ride. Winter walks are all about slippy roots and rocks, puddles, mud and wet leaves and the Terradoras took all of these in their stride. 

The Terradora Mid is not built to take you into the high alpine and it’s certainly not designed to hold a crampon and that’s absolutely ok. As a light hiking mid for quick trail escapades, it more than does its job and it does it with style.
