Durand Mid WP

rated 0.5 of 5 stars American Made Built-In Heel Pain. Who's bright idea was it to put the raised black rubber rock in the center of the heel area? If you like hiking on a rock under your heel, by all means buy this boot. The most stupid design ever with the raised hard rubber rock under the center of your heel pad. i had to void my warranty and cut the rock out so I could use the boot. I like spending good money and voiding the warranty a week after buying a product. You can always buy one of their Made In Vietnam… Full review

Newport H2

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Never ever Keen again! I bought Keen based on reviews and according to my needs. Fit was good, but lack of tightening below ankle. Seams started falling apart and by closer inspection I observed more loose thread ends. There were no possibilities for me to send the sandals back and I spent few evenings to sew by hand with stronger thread (photos available). The lack of Keen reliability led to further walking with Teva, actually bought for city walking. Full review

Targhee Mid

rated 5 of 5 stars I like the durability of the shoe. It's nice and strong and is comfortable for long days at work and, the best part, my feet do not get Cold! The shoes are very comfortable. For long days on my feet they hold up to the rugged terrain that I put them to. I like them on short hikes, but not long ones. The shoelaces are kind of long. But the stiffness of the boot is very good if you like that extra wide. I have put them through water and they hold up very well. Do not leak in shallow water! I will… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars For shoes fit for extreme trail walking at a moderate cost look no further than the Keen Koven hiking shoe. Having worn out a pair of expensive trail shoes in a couple of months I had to shop for some replacements. Having seen a number of specialist shops with little to fit my shortened feet (Frostbite rebuild) a delightful young lady suggested some Keen shoes: "They're wide and they are on special at under half price." I tried them, took a size larger and Wallah! just like carpet slippers, wonderful… Full review

Logan Mid WP

rated 2 of 5 stars Nice fit, but... I've worn Keen footwear for years due to the fit and performance that they built their reputation on.  Unfortunately, after three months, I discovered the upper material detaching from the soles all the way around the boot, starting at the flex point near the ball of foot. I've been finding an increasing number of negative reviews regarding Keen QC issues. I hope this is just a fluke, because I have liked their boots in the past. May be difficult to continue to recommend them to… Full review
