Targhee II Mid

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Excellent all around boots. Being involved with the Boy Scouts for many years, I have spent many hours on my feet and in my boots. Keens provide great toe protection, and if you have ever stubbed your toe on the trail, you'll understand the importance of the large toe cap.   I have always found the fit to be very good. I own several pairs of Keens and actively wear them all. Full review

Targhee II Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars Sturdy, Not too heavy and a thick sole make this a great value hiking boot. I really like they way these fit my feet and offer support. The lacing pattern etc. make my feet and ankles feel very secure to help avoid injury. I also like that i can address rocky, wet, sandy, woodland etc. terrain and so far have been very pleased with how they feel and handle the terrain. I don't "feel everything" under my feet due to the thick sole so i don't have to be concerning with where my every step goes in… Full review

Targhee II Mid

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These boots are comfortable, tough, and easy to use. They are lightweight and perfect for wet-weather hiking and backpacking. They are also a good value. Like a lot of hikers and backpackers, I spend a lot of time worrying about and obsessing over my gear choices. I read review after review until my mind is numb, and even then I am still a compulsive product-returner. Footwear, however, is different for me. Reviews and features are secondary—fit is the most important thing. I bought these shoes… Full review

Durand Mid WP

rated 3 of 5 stars Lightweight hiking boot with a roomy toe box. I purchased these boots because of the nice roomy toe box and their light weight. Most hiking boots today seem to have a narrow toe box which is OK if you have a pointy foot.  I am a little disappointed in them. They turned out to cause my foot to blister in the heel area on a very steep rough hike. I have not noticed the same problem on level trails. The soles are very slippery on wet rocks. Also, the construction of the cuff area around the Achilles… Full review

Bryce Mid WP

rated 4 of 5 stars Great boots, but do not last. These were my second pair of Keen hikers (used to have the Targhee hiking shoes that were great, but wore out significantly after 3-4 years), and I've really enjoyed them, but I just took them back (after 1 year, 2 months of only moderate, trail hiking only, use) as they had lost their waterpoof-ness and some of the stitching had come apart. Read on their website that Keen-Dry has a warranty of two years, so took them back to MEC (where I bought them), no questions… Full review
