Targhee II

rated 3 of 5 stars I've really wanted to love these shoes... but just can't.... I've owned a pair of these boots for about 4 years now, and I've really wanted to love them, but I just can't.  I tried on a pair of the Targhee II Mid boots size 11 in a store, and really like the fit and comfort, especially the wide toebox.  But, I wanted the low shoe version and the store didn't have any.  So, I ordered the low shoe version online, size 11.  However, when they arrived they just weren't as comfortable.  First, the… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have had these boots for over two years and love them. Great for wearing around the farm or just with a pair of jeans on a casual outing. These boots fit great! I have a wide foot and have a difficult time finding comfortable shoes. They required a day or two to break in, but have been so comfy ever since and I have had them for two and a half years.  The support is excellent and they are truly waterproof. I have waded thru puddles and have used a hose to rinse mud and dirt off of them and my… Full review

Targhee II Mid

rated 2 of 5 stars I experienced sole and lacing eyelet failure at about six months of light hiking. Initial fit was good but the boots failed. I do not recommend this boot.

Newport H2

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect i haven’t tried hiking with a pack on in hot weather with these, but they are my summer faves: walking, rock hopping through water, it’s all good. I needed no break-in period. These felt like a dream right out of the box. There’s a deep heel cup, generous arch support and roomy toe box. The lacing system is quick and easy, the sandals offer great traction on wet rock.   As comfy as my trusty old Birkenstocks, but completely amphibious. Can’t go wrong with these.   Full review


rated 1 of 5 stars Poor build quality, durability and then customer service when reported the issues. Won't have another Keen boot. Got these under warranty (when my Keen Durands fell apart in less than 12 months). Lasted six months (really two weeks in New Zealand). Leaked badly from the outset and the sole is separating (from itself and from the upper). Contacted Keen and was told they stand behind their product—except if you got the shoe as a result of a warranty claim (??). The last two pairs of Keen boots I've… Full review
