When choosing great footwear for those bitterly cold days of winter, we should really ask ourselves certain questions before we buy them.
Does the style appeal to me?
Do they address my needs?
Are they durable and well made?
Will they keep me warm/ comfortable/waterproof/water resistant?
Is there sufficient traction?
Are they affordable?
In this article, we will answer all of these questions, with another great model from the manufacturer of KEEN Boots, designed especially for women – the Hoodoo III Winter Boot.
Hoodoo III winter boots are not only a quality product, but also eye catching and stylish. They are made like most of the other KEEN products, of oiled nubuck leather that is stitched with seam sealed water protection. These boots come in appealing colors, and most sizes for women. As much as they are great for cold, frosty days, they are also very good for those transition days from fall to winter. They are designed for all kinds of weather, but are especially suited for winter.
The height of the boot shaft is about 8.5” from the arch. This waterproof boot features faux-fur collar and 200g of insulation. They also have a thermal heat shield in the foot bed, and a dual compound snow and ice grip rubber sole. These tall, lightweight boots are great for very wet conditions, and pretty deep snow.
200-grams insulation in the boots, a firm rubber sole and a leather, textile design with a faux fur collar ensures that your feet will feel warm, and comfortable the whole time that you are out in the cold. Good quality, adjustable laces can be tightened for more ankle support, and a gusseted tongue helps keep snow out of the boot.
All KEEN models are praised for good quality and durability. They can last years if you treat them right.
Like most Keen boots, the inner space is roomy and tends to fit a wide foot. Many buyers like to wear thick socks to feel snug in their boots, so we recommend that you buy up to half a size larger.
Keen boots are easy to put on and take off. A side zipper is helpful for this, as well as accommodating women who have larger calves.
If you’re looking for mid-priced boots that will protect you on cold days, then these boots are designed for you. They sell for approximately $140, and in our estimation are totally worth the price. These are high-quality boots that can be worn casually around town, or for recreational purposes, such as snowshoeing and hiking.
