When the night is cold, the wind is blowing and all you really need is a bit of comfort and warmth, you need to reach for your pair of Keen Howsers. They’re a sleeping bag for your feet that is bunched and quilted recycled felt and lined with a plush microfleece to provide sleeping-bag-like warmth without the puffball bulk.

They’re slim, comfortable and feature accented stitching details, a natural rubber outsole and an elastic gore for a fit that’s easy-on, easy-off. KEEN Cush PU and memory foam footbed molds to your feet, making every step a lovingly cushioned one.

I love the microfleece lining and a non-marking natural rubber outsole. The water resistant nylon upper adds a great value in keeping your feet dry and warm, say when grabbing the paper in the morning on wet grass. I think “sturdy” and “comfortable” can best describe these well crafted shoes.

Note that you should not put these shoes in the washing machine. They should be cleaned with a light brushing. If they are really contaminated, use a spot removing foam, then brush the shoes. One potential option is “dry cleaning” in the dryer. Place the shoes in a dry cleaning bag, add the cleaning agent and put into the dryer cycle.

If you don’t have a pair, you might consider getting one. The Keen Howser is going for $65.00 on their website, so order yours today.
