Here, we are presenting the final result after investigating the famous Keen Versatrail hiking shoe from the gent’s side. Not to be a buzzkill, but I also cannot resist myself from telling you that you are going to love this hiking shoe for sure. If, you are looking for something light and comfortable over warm or hot weather. So without wasting any more time, let’s jump on to the real stuff.
When you have your eyes on this shoe, you are going to see and hear a lot of the word lightweight. Because this shoe has a synthetic and meshed upper that is also very light in weight.
As it has meshed upper, this shoe has become very breathable from that very point.
Water resistance and Breathability:
But still, when it has meshes on the upper, it creates an opening from where water can enter. And to prevent that from happening, the Keen. Dry waterproof but breathable membrane is used in this shoe.
This membrane lets the heat and moisture out of the shoe from inside but also prevents any water to get in from outside.

You know, the sole of any shoe or boot is comprised of three parts; the insole, the midsole, and the outsole. And I have got to say that this shoe is rich from all these three parts.
First of all, the insole is of a dual-density, metatomical, removable, polyurethane footbed that keeps you comfortable and well-balanced when you are wearing it.
Then there is also another dual-density EVA midsole which is also compression molded. For this reason, this shoe has great support and stability when it comes to being used on any uneven trail.
At last, we have a rubber made rigid outsole that has an important role in providing stability and suspension.
And yeah, I just remembered. This shoe is made with the S3 design in mind. S3 means structure, stability, and suspension. And what we have found from practicing this shoe, there is no one denying its S3 features.
