Prepare to put some serious pep in your pace in the new Zionic speed hiker from KEEN.
KEEN’s fastest and lightest ever hiker, the Zionic represents the ultimate fusion of support and performance, designed from the ground up to deliver second to none comfort, allowing you to break new ground and tackle the most challenging terrain with ease during pacey outdoor adventures.
KEEN’s iconic, generous fit has been carefully adapted with a more streamlined last providing secure and cushioned support, that still allows the toes and forefoot to spread, giving that distinctive KEEN feel and all-day comfort, loved by fans across the globe.
Constructed with a high-performance rip-stop, recycled mesh upper, TPU overlays provide extra durability and protection in exposed areas, whilst a KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane ensures feet stay dry and comfortable even in winter’s worse weathers.
A direct attach air injected midsole with stability shank delivers lightweight, underfoot cushioning and support, with a removable PU insole with arch support ensuring long lasting comfort and reducing foot fatigue on long excursions.
A PFA free Durable Waterproof Repellent provides long lasting protection from the elements without any of the downstream impacts of chemical counterparts, whilst KEEN’s Eco Anti-odor system keeps feet smelling sweet even when moving at pace without the use of harmful chemicals.
Designed with a heel ‘crash pad’, where the outsole is wrapped around the heel to help absorb impact, a high traction outsole features 4mm low profile lugs, providing reliable traction and enhanced ground contact, for a palpably fluid heel to toe movement that flexes and supports with every step.
Additional padding around the Achilles provides comfort straight from the box, protecting against abrasion and friction and ensuring a comfortable ride even when moving at speed or on technical terrain. KEEN’s speed lace system with top collar hooks allow a swift, secure and comfortable fit, with a neat two finger webbing loop on the heel, providing additional leverage to pull on and go with ease and speed when you are on the fly.
Choose from a mid (£160) or low-cut (£150) model in men and women’s specific editions, the Zionic can be found at keenfootwear.de and selected lifestyle and sporting goods retailers from mid July 2023.
