rated 4 of 5 stars This is a lightweight, high performance shoe suitable for hiking, walking, or just casual wear. The shoe is true to size and very comfortable for any purpose. I received this Keen Versatrail shoe to trial on a high altitude adventure in the Sierra Nevadas and Mont Blanc in France. This lightweight, high-performance hiking shoe helps you tackle trails fast. It has a full-length layer of cushioning to absorb shock, and the breathable foam tongue gives it a custom-feeling fit. The lining is a breathable… Full review

Newport H2

rated 4 of 5 stars They have been comfortable from day one. I live in these all summer. If it weren't for my Keen hikers, I would wear them in the snow. Good product I hope Keen hangs onto in the future. I adore my Birki river shoes, however finding a pair that protected the toe I found to be difficult. From day one, these Newport H2's have been AWESOME. Good traction in the water and out. They aren't hard to swim with once you get used to their weight. I just love them, enough said. My Keen hikers are just as wonderful. Full review

Oregon PCT

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great product for those of us with wider feet. It's an extremely comfortable boot, and when purchased I bought half a size larger that allows for any foot swelling one gets after long days of hiking. This boot is my go-to boot for my most difficult terrain. I've used the boot many times, on several multi-day hikes from trails in Iceland, the Chilkoot Trail in Alaska, the La Clothe Silhouette Trail in Killarney Park, Ontario, Mount Assiniboine Park, and many others. Prior to purchasing… Full review

Targhee II Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars I have completed multiple hikes in these boots and have had no issues from them. I have had two pairs of these boots. The first pair was ruined on the Eagle Rock Loop Trail because I left them too close to the fire. FYI... Fire and sole cushioning do not mix well. I got home and bought another pair.  I have had this current pair for two years and have had no issues.   Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Easy break-in. Easy on and off. Hybrid performance on and off trail. Stylish sneaker. First off, I have to say I am not a big Keen fan. I've worked in shoes for over two decades and they are not even in my top 10 favorite brands. That being said, I felt like I needed to try something new to try and convince me otherwise. I was looking for a hybrid trail hiker. Something that was comfortable both on the trail and on concrete. I also wanted something I could treat like a slip on so when I was camping… Full review
