Don’t let the cozy wool collar trim fool you, in reality, this men’s boot is far warmer than it looks. With a -4F -20C comfort rating and 100g of KEEN.Warm insulation, keeping your feet nice and toasty during the winter and fall months is an effortless task.
With a full-grain leather upper and wool trim collar construction, Keen’s The Slater boot offers some serious contrasting eye appeal.
Paired with the non-marketing rubber outsole with a rugged lug pattern and you’ve got one masculine boot built for the harsh outdoors.
Aside from the already stylish appearance and impressive traction, this boot offers plenty of more features to love. Below, you’ll find my in-depth Keen The Slater boots review featuring a field-test alongside my own impressions.

Brown Men’s Bogs Foundation Mid Leather Composite Toe Boots Review
Let’s face it, ice, slush, snow, and rain are the biggest enemies of any boot; nobody like a soggy wet foot.
Luckily, Keen has introduced this seam-sealed waterproofing on The Slater men’s boot to keep the outside elements out.
Speaking of comfort, The Slater boot also features a really nice EVA midsole for excellent underfoot support and shock absorption. I had the chance to wear these over some seriously rocky and rough terrain and yet, each step felt incredibly enjoyable to take. When it comes to comfort for your nose, Keen’s got you covered there too. Each boot features their unique Cleansport NXT technology which aids in natural odor control.
With around a 5-inch shaft, these boots are perfect for when you want more boot and foot protection without going too big on the bulkiness and weight. For ease of use, the leather pull tab found on the heel makes these men’s boots a breeze to put on and take off.
Factor in the heat reflecting strobel for a warm thermal barrier, Keen.Warm insulation, rugged lug pattern outsole, waterproof full-grain leather construction, and you’ve gone one rock-solid men’s cold weather boot.
