KEEN Elsa Waterproof Boot - Women's
KEENElsa Waterproof Boot - Women's

Fashion-forward protection.

The Keen Elsa WP Boot brings leather and textiles together for a durable construction with breathable mesh lining, which is also protected by a waterproof polyurethane coating. This means that whether you’re trudging through snow on the way to your car or defrosting by the lodge’s fireplace, you stay stylish and dry. This boot also has a rubber sole that grips various surfaces so you don’t slip, and it has a blend of synthetic insulation and recycled foam footbed that offers warm, cushioned support.

Great boot, not for low volume feet

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I've been looking for a short boot and had a go with this one. I've a low volume/bony foot with widish forefoot and narrow heel. I was swimming in this boot. It is meant for someone with more meat to their feet.

Better than my Sorels

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love these boots! They even fit better than my sorels, they are not as clunky and are for more everyday wear. I wear these walking my dog and walking around at the ski resorts, shoveling my car out etc. Would highly recommend!

Slip on and go

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these boots! They are exactly what I want them to be as an easy shoe to slip on during bad weather. I love that I don't have to lace them up every time making it an easy boot to get on and off and they are super warm! Perfect for walking my dog, taking out that trash but also super cute so I can wear them out as well. The perfect mix of fashion and function.
EDIT*** I loved these boots but quality wise they are not holding up. They ripped within a month of owning them along the back seem of the shoe. I love these guys but i think all the ones with a wool/felt just won't hold up.

Love Keen, Not In Love With These Boots

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Over the past ten years I have had probably 10 pairs of Keen shoes and they have stood up to the many years of work and play. When I was looking for a pair of boots, I looked for a pair that would be not as bulky as my big, heavy duty, snow boots, I looked at Keen. I chose the Elsa because of the style and the height of the boot. When I got them I was a little disappointed that there was not much padding on the inside sole of the boots. I had to wear a heavier sock so that the bottom of my foot would not be cold (which made them tight). Plus the boots are not as wide and do not have the same arch support that regular Keen shoes do. I love all of the Keen shoes I have bought and I will keep on buying them!

Great winter boot

    These were given as a gift but I was provided feedback to share. The sizing is spot in. The boots are very warm, comfortable and sturdy. They’re also extremely stylish. The only complaint is the rubber in the inside of the boot feels a little weird, but other than that they’re awesome.

    Perfect for a week in Jackson Hole

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these boots for a family vacation to Jackson Hole, WY. These were the only shoes I brought on the trip. I wore them on the plane, to the mountain, après skiing (they felt like heaven after ski boots) and even out to dinner. My feet were always warm and comfortable. I wore them with wool socks and/or ski socks. I'm a true 8.5 and these worked perfectly. My only complaint is the laces do untie easily; however, I just had to double knot.

    Warm and Fashionable

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this boots last year when Keen came to our office to show us their products. I was so impressed with the quality and reassurance they gave me that i purchased my and was extremely happy with my decision.

    They are warm, waterproof and come in cute colors. I like them so much I purchased a second pair for my mom as a present. I'm sure she will love them just as much as I do and I can't wait for her to try them out.

    Survived a freezing weekend in Moab

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love these boots! I bought them in my normal shoe size and I would say they run a little bit large. If I wear them with a thinner pair of socks my feet move around. They are most comfortable with a heavier pair of socks like smartwool midweight hiking socks. I took them out to Moab this weekend for a little car camping trip. It was 15 degrees at night so it was super chilly. They held up well, my toes did get cold later in the night, but I expected that since I wasn't really moving around to help them out at all. I also wore them walking through some shallow streams and my feet stayed completely dry. I really love these and they're great for cold days on campus, taking the dog to the dog park or just a day at the office.

    The inside of the boot shows a temp rating of -4 F/ -20 C

    So cute!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I really like these boots. They are understated but still very warm. They are excellent winter boots and they keep my feet nice and dry.

    Great Boot for a Great price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is my go to boot for winter snowy mornings. It fits true to size and it nice and warm. My feet stay dry with the canvas exterior which surprised me. I would recommend this to anyone needing a casual snow boot for the winter season.

    Very cute boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Got these for my wife and she loves them, they are very cute and warm she says. She is ready for the winter with these boots.

    My new favorite winter shoes.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I really love these boots! I got them to replace my super bulky snow boots and they are great for snow and rain. I like that they are a little smaller so they're easier to pack with me, and they blend in more than clunky snow boots. They are really comfortable and I love the fuzzy lining. I am usually a 6/6.5 and I got a 7 so that I could wear big socks with them. I would say they are pretty true to size.

    Thumbs Up

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 6.5

    Girlfriend approved! She has worn them from the mountains and snow, to dinner at night and even back in FL in the rain (doesn't own rain boots lol)

    Too wide for my foot but very cute!

      Had to return because they were just too wide for me, but the were very cute and seemed well made and comfortable. If you have narrow feet you may want to consider a different boot

      Great Winter Boots

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 7.5

      I love these boots. They are great in cold weather. Have used them while outside in sub-freezing weather for hours on end and my feet have been warm and dry. They do run small. Normally, I wear a size 7, though my feet tend to be in between, but when I received the 7, it was short so I returned them and got the 7.5. It is much more comfortable. If you are in between sizes, go with the larger one for sure!

      Awesome Everyday boots!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 8

      I love these boots. I have worn these boots almost everyday since I got them.



      I was worried on the sizing when I ordered because I have wide feet and I like to wear thicker socks when it gets really cold. I'm a size 7.5 normally but ordered a size 8. These boots are naturally wide in the toes and are pretty roomy so I really should have ordered a 7.5.



      Although I wouldn't recommend these for hiking due to the boots not having any cushioning or support, I did take them hiking on a super wet/ snowy trail and I was impressed on how waterproof they were.



      I would definitely recommend these boots for everyday use!



      Awesome Everyday boots!

      Love these boots!

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 7.5

      These boots don't feel/look like your typical snow boot! I'm 5' 2" and snow boots can tend to be bulky and huge on me, but these are super snug and so cute! Ive worn them in snow and rain and they are perfect. They run pretty true to size as normally you'd wear thick socks. Ive gotten so many compliments on them definitely recommend!

      Great boots!

        This is the only gift that I've ordered for my wife that she really loves. Usually I have to return items because she's very particular. She loves the design, how warm they are, and how comfortable the are--even to just wear around the house!

        Super warm

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: True to size

        I gave these to my sister as a gift and she loves them so much. I was worried about the sizing but it fits perfect true to size. She loved how soft the interior was.

        warm and comfy

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: 9.5

        I got these because I have Uggs and they are not water proof so I wanted to get a short boot that is water proof for the rain and also warm for the cold weather. I looked at so many boots and settled on these because they were kinda cute and I know that Keen shoes have the roomy toes. ( I have hiking sandals from Keen and they are very foot friendly. lol)

        I wore them several times. We just had our first NY snow and they are great!! Definitely warm and waterproof. I walked my dog down the snowy street and the boots kept me dry and warm.

        I got a compliment from my fashiony friend --so that made me feel good about the style! :)

        I wear a 9 usually and ordered the 9 but then exchanged for the 9.5 to have room for thick socks. Tho I have been slipping into them without socks mostly.

        I attached a pic in the snow with my dog. I just threw the boots on with my sweatpants to take the dog out.

        warm and comfy
