If you need shoes that are ready for romping through streams and puddles and tackling mountain trails, but also great for playground jungle gyms, the Alamosa WP is the shoe for you. Keen’s Alamosa is a lightweight and waterproof trail shoe that’s ready for anything. A waterproof and breathable membrane keeps little feet dry in wet or muddy conditions and the secure fit lace capture system ensures the Alamosa stays put during energetic play or exploration.
My boys go to a school with a really strict uniform policy. The only thing they don’t strictly enforce are shoes. So when we go back to school shopping the kids always seem to enjoy shoe shopping the most.
This year was a bit different for Blake. He is in second grade and his looks are starting to matter a bit more to him. Normally I spend hours bringing the kids to multiple stores looking for the perfect Batman shoes or stunning lime green shoes that really show their personality. This year, Blake’s main concern was they were easy to get on and on, fast to tie, waterproof and matched his uniform!
I searched online for a bit for waterproof shoes and Keen was one of the very first brands that popped up. I used their “Find The Perfect Shoe” program and Blake picked the slate black and rust colored Alamosa shoes!
Features of the Alamosa Include
- Non-marking rubber outsole
- Secure fit lace capture system
- Waterproof breathable membrane
- Waterproof leather and textile upper
With all the rain we have been getting in Pennsylvania the past few weeks we have really been able to test the waterproofness of the Alamosa’s out. I am super excited to say, they are truly waterproof. Even when splashing in puddles, Blake’s socks stay nice and dry. The easy on and off strap has made them Blake’s very favorite shoe and the amazing wear on them let’s me know they will be able to be his favorite pair for a long time.
