Rated 4 out of 5 by pesti13 Down from "Excellent" to "Good"
I have worn Keens for many years now, and this is my 3rd pair of these specific shoes (Targhee II). I use them for everyday walking, light hiking and as my go-to travel shoes, I also ran the Tough Mudder in them as I didn't want to wear flimsy running sneakers!! By all accounts, my Keens have always been great - they fit right out of the box and require no "breaking in". The only reason that these have gone down slightly in rating from me is that the soles seem stiffer, the toe box less comfortable than my previous two pairs. Also, the size of the ankle opening seems to be slightly more elongated than previously as I find my heel lifting off the insole as they never did before. I ignored it at first, but I know Keens always fit right, first time, every time I've owned them so I'm actually very tempted to return them even though I've worn them a fair bit now. Anyway, overall I still really love these shoes but in case anyone else has had a similar experience, I thought I'd share mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hagwind2 Good boots!
These fit well right out of the box. After a brisk five-mile walk, my feet were very happy. Since then I've splashed through a few puddles in my new boots: they're waterproof, all right. I especially like the lacing pattern, which makes it possible to snug up around the ankles. (I like good ankle support. It's a big reason I wear boots much more often than shoes.) This is helpful now, and I think it will become more so as the boots age and relax some. Short version: I'm very happy with my new boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bear506 Very good traction
I went out with on a search where the terrain was very steep. We were climbing over trees that had fallen and stepping on rocks covered with moss. It was very slippery and I never once lost my footing. These shoes also kept my ankles protected from twisting. My feet never hurt after hiking all day. They are very comfortable.

These are excellent for hiking and/or just walking. Very comfortable, waterproof, nice looking, and functional. Wore them hiking in Alaska over very uneven, often wet terrain and didn't slip or falter once. Also bought a pair for my husband and they worked well for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 13Vicki Perfect for Hiking Comfort
I purchased these to wear hiking in the Rocky Mountains. They were perfect from the first day. These boots kept my feet warm and dry through rain, sleet and puddles. They were lightweight and did not need any breaking in time. I wore them on shorter hikes as well as a 10 hour hike through very rocky, slippery conditions. I felt stable and kept thinking how much I loved these boots! I did order these a 1/2 size up from my normal size and that was a great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zandra This is a great boot.....
Read all the reviews and still worried that they wouldn't fit when they arrived. I am a 10 1/2 who usually wears an 11 due to availability. They were JUST big enough. Everything else about the Keen is awesome - lightweight (almost like a sneaker), good looking and warm with a light
or heavy sock. These boots live up to their reputation.
