The Keen Red Rock Mid hiking boot borrows the name from the park concert venue and surrounding park. The Red Rock Mid features:
The lower portion on its upper consists of a natural material – dyed nubuck leather. Nubuck is a tried-and-true material that is known for its durability. The nubuck leather in the upper gives added protection to the boot’s toe box.
The boots are lightweight – 18 ounces. And wear well. The use of the leather in the upper gives it a natural action. The outersole on KEEN Red Rock Mid has mid-sized lugs that make the boot perform admirably on rocky surfaces to softer dirt trails. Standing in a stream for a few minutes did not penetrate the boot.
Overall, the KEEN Red Rock Mid lives to the high company standards. It will work well for day hiking in Red Rocks and is also workable for shorter overnight excursions. The KEEN Red Rock Mid can hold up over different surfaces including wet ones during stream crossings. KEEN lists the Red Rock Mid at $120.
