Most fast and light hiking boots look like… hiking boots. KEEN wanted to make a boot that’s as comfortable out on the trail as it is dusted off and paired with your go-to ‘out with friends’ look. With a better leather upper that brings a heritage hiking DNA vibe and rugged, super grippy rubber underfoot, the men's NXIS Explorer does exactly that.

Gently brush leather with a soft bristle brush or hand towel to remove loose dirt and debris. Tough stains may require a leather cleaner.
