KEEN Delivers Style and Warmth with Winter-Ready Boots


Portland, OR – January 2014 – Complimenting its trusted winter boot collection, for Fall 2014, KEEN debuts cozy, insulated styles for women with luxe touches and snow-ready designs.

The Wapato Tall WP (MSRP $150) and Mid WP (MSRP $130) blend the KEEN promise of fit and durability with fun and stylish snow-bunny looks. Featuring a combination of waterproof full-grain and Nubuck leather with 200 gram KEEN.WARM insulation, the Wapato WP will keep toes toasty after a day on the slopes, or a stroll through snowy city streets. A faux-fur lining and collar add comfort and luxury in cold climates.

“The Wapato WP boots are such an exciting addition to our winter boot collection. These boots are really geared towards the fashion-forward woman, who needs a boot that will deliver warmth with eye-catching flair,” says Johanna Koeberle, Senior Merchandise Manager, BLVD at KEEN. “We used beautiful leathers and faux-fur embellishments. There’s no sacrificing warmth and comfort for the sake of fashion here.”

The Wapato WP also comes in a version for little fashionistas that like to walk in winter wonderlands in styles.

The Wapato WP boots build on a winter line of fan-favorites, such as the Revel II for men and women. Featuring KEEN’s patented Heat Trapolator technology, the Revel II has underfoot insulation and multi-directional lugs to stay sure-footed and warm in cold winter weather.
