With the UK weather currently as it is, you might find it hard to imagine running or walking your way through streams and rivers.
But hopefully these images from KEEN will give you a warm reminder that better are days are just ahead of us.
The shoes you see here are the called the Terradora Ethos (£85) and are a “water adaptable, warm climate shoe”, which we read as being something you can wear in and out of the water this coming spring/summer.
Look closely and you can see the construction gives the shape and fit of a running shoe, but there are channels, grooves and openings to allow water to pass freely in and out.
The upper is water repellent and has synthetic leather overlays to hold the structure and also to give your feet some protection.
Inside is a quick dry lining which has been treated with Cleansport NXT ™ so bad smells don’t develop.
There’s also a removable footbed, an EVA midsole, a rubber outsole and 4mm deep lugs on the bottom for grip.
KEEN adds: “The Terradora Ethos has been designed to promote a natural range of motion, promising a cushioned, responsive ride and fantastically flexible performance during all your summer adventures.”
On sale in three colours. The colour you see here is Grape Wine/Grape Kiss.
