Rated 5 out of 5 by Shadesjm Best Boot I've Ever Owned
I purchased these boots after a the heal of an Oboze Sawtooth came apart on me at the bottom of the Grand Canyon on a 5 day hike. I've had my Targhee II's for four years now. Took a bit to break in, but after all this time they are still waterproof, still comfy, and still trekking. From the deserts of The West, mountains of Hawaii, Canadian Tundra, Appalachians, Mt. Washington, etc. these boots have seen it all. Three lace points have come apart where the webbing wore out, but a quick needle and thread job has held them together another season. They are now at the end of their life in year 4; the tread is worn completely down. I have used this as an aggressive hiking boot and a daily shoe. Can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wallflyer Going great after a year's use
I bought these over 1 year ago for general use out of doors, but found them to be comfortable even for everyday use.Aside from their being slightly less breathable than the average waterproof boot(of no real consequence, and have been impressed with their super waterproofness when boat launching), I consider these an excellent boot & value.
I usually wear an 11 1/2 med and the size 12 have fit me perfectly.I am planning to order another pair soon.
For some reason, flyline does not tangle on these boots as many do.Have not tested resistance to moccasins or rattlers here in Tennessee.Do not walk on wet terrazo,etc. floor, as they get slippery.Great in mud & rocky slopes, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RustyR Great boots, Great service
I read reviews to choose these boots and they are great, light well built and comfortable. L.L. Bean provided great service ad they were shipped and on my doorstep in Florida in less than 36 hours. I look forward to ordering from L.L. Bean again !!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by orangenwhite82 Mid-high hiking boot
As advertised-a very comfortable boot out of the box. Hiked in the Appalachian's trails with shallow streams and standing water from rain. Was waterproof throughout several trips. Mid- high boot had some rain find gap between top of boot and rain pants when high step-ups required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KentuckyHiker Great boots, order up a half size
My husband loves these boots. Great fit, waterproof, lighter weight than his previous pair. One note of caution - do order up a half size, as they do run shorter in length than other brands. Very satisfied with the purchase, hoping these hold up as well as other reviews would indicate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CountryLadyNYS Gift to Son
These hiking boots looked great and fit well. They are well made and had nice rounded toe area, which made the fit comfortable. I know my son wore them on Christmas day and said that they were comfortable, but a little stiff, which will only improve as he wears them. Very sturdy looking with the leather exterior. I think he will get a lot of wear out of these shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DanH Comfortable boot, but have the Shoe Goo ready
This is the second pair of Keen Targhee II boots and I have the same issue as with the first pair...pieces of the sole separate where they are glued. I have only had these for 9 months. I don't fault LLBean but I hope they pass on this information to Keen so they can find a more durable glue to use. You can't beat the comfort of these boots but I have used Shoe Goo on both pair to get extra life out of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charles48 MOST COMFORTABLE EVER
I PRACTICALLY LIVE IN BOOTS. I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH BOOTS THAT PINCH IN THE TOE AREA WHICH MOST DO. BECAUSE OF THAT, I HAVE ALWAYS PURCHASED WIDE WIDTHS-2 E OR MORE. NO PINCH BUT MY FEET SWIM AROUND. TOO WIDE.
I HEARD THAT KEEN BOOTS DON'T PINCH BUT ONLY GO AS HIGH AS MEDIUM WIDTH. WELL GUESS WHAT? THEY DON'T PINCH AND THEY FIT GREAT. MEDIUM FITS JUST FINE.
MY FEET DON'T SWIM AROUND. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A FEW YEARS, I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT THESE ARE THE MOST COMFORTABLE BOOTS I HAVE EVER WORN. TIME WILL TELL. I HAVE ONLY HAD THEM SINCE SEP 28, 2015. THE JURY IS STILL OUT ON DURABILITY...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Chobani Very Comfortable
The boot is very comfortable, there is plenty of grip, the only issue I had was that the black outer sole started to delaminate after about 10 days. Yes I do use my boots more than the average, but not that much more. All in all the boot is good just needs some tweaks.

Kind of a hybrid hiking boot and athletic shoe. Very comfortable from Day 1. Great for small hikes or country living and big city walking. Serious hikers should probably look for something more traditional. Well made and nice looking too.
