More on the Prize Package

Now in its fourth iteration, the Targhee is KEEN’s most durable style yet, thanks to its new glue-free, fused construction that KEEN guarantees won’t delaminate. This revolutionary KEEN.FUSION technology is three times stronger than glues traditionally used to bond the boot’s upper and sole, a common fail point for hiking boots.

Durability also means sustainability, since the boots get a boost in lifespan from the abrasion-resistant rubber outsoles with multi-directional lugs. The Targhee IV is built to last and even comes with a lifetime delamination-free guarantee in the United States.

Despite these updates, the brand’s Original Fit remains the same, so the forefoot still makes room for your natural toe splay. In our Targhee IV review, an editor cited the boots’ roomy fit, comfort, and short break-in time. KEEN even offers a 30-day trial to hike around and see if they deliver the fit and function you need.

Lastly, the Targhee IV also uses KEEN.DRY technology that provides PFAS-free waterproof protection inside and outside the boot. KEEN has been a leader in the PFAS-free movement in the footwear space starting in 2018 and has since removed PFAS from its entire supply chain.
