Great boot with a great fit!
- Great fit
- None so far
I got these boots in exchange for a pair of Targhee II's that had a very poor fit. Keen's customer service was great in helping me with that issue. They not only make a great product they are also a top notch company.
I have only had these boots about a week so my experience with them is limited. However, we had some snow recently followed by a few days of sunshine so today was an excellent opportunity to try them out on the sloppy, muddy trails. They performed great. My feet stayed dry and the fit was very stable.
I like the way Keens fit in that there is plenty of room in the toe box but not so much that you have too loose of a fit. Today's hike was a short trip on my local trail but I can see that the Gypsum will work great on longer more strenuous hikes with weight on my pack. I am looking forward to many miles in these boots. I would highly recommend!

Built with increased stability to take you farther, Keen's Gypsum Mid is an all-terrain boot with a wide outsole, Keen.Zorb cushioning, shock-absorbing comfort, and a waterproof, breathable Keen.Dry membrane for overnight hikes and winter ascents.
The waterproof Keen Gypsum WP Mid hiking boots for women have long-lasting construction to keep feet protected during long treks. Waterproof nubuck leather uppers offer ample durability, flexibility and breathability for lasting comfort on and off the trail. KEEN.DRY(TM) waterproof breathable membranes keep feet dry while allowing perspiration to dissipate before it saturates the inside of the shoe. Patented rubber Toe Guards protect feet and uppers from impacts and abrasion. Removable Metatomical EVA footbeds are shaped to provide ample cushioning and arch support; can also accommodate orthotics. Compression-molded EVA midsoles offer shock-absorption and padding for all-day comfort. External thermoplastic urethane heel stabilizers support feet on impact, dissipate shock and reduce the chance of twisting an ankle. Supportive ESS thermoplastic urethane plates provide torsional stability and protection from uneven and rocky terrain.
