After venturing beyond its cult-face “ugly sandals” with the WK400 walking shoes, KEEN is back with another new footwear premiere: the Zionic collection. Dubbed by the shoemaker as its “fastest and lightest trail shoe to date,” the new series offers both hiking shoes and boots in a range of understated, muted, essential as well as bold colorways.

As a flagship model, the Zionic utilizes KEEN’s over two decades of expertise and knowledge in hiking footwear, complete with new technology that ensures the shoes are built for performance without sacrificing comfort and weight. This includes an updated room-for-your-toes fit for optimal support, aggressive yet low-profile lug patterned soles with improved ground contact, as well as high-energy midsoles that provide stable yet responsive cushioning.

Developed to boost speed without compromising on traction, safety, and sustainability the collection is produced without PFAS, complete with a pesticide-free anti-odor footbed.

Prices range from $145 – $170 USD, the Zionic collection is now available in both men’s and women’s sizes via KEEN’s official website.

Elsewhere in the realm of hiking shoes, HOKA launches a new lightweight Anacapa 2 GTX.
