Summary

Great boot with a great fit!

Pros

  • Waterproof
  • Great fit
  • Stability

Cons

  • 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!

Whether you're tackling the PCT, or a nasty weather day hike, get the waterproof stability of the Women's Keen Gypsum Mid Hiking Boots. A waterproof nubuck leather upper forms the first line of defense against mud and rain, followed by Keen's own KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane. The microporous membrane lets body vapor escape while slamming the door on outside precipitation. Inside your foot settles on to a removable metatomical dual density EVA footbed, atop a compression molded midsole. The midsole also houses an ESS thermoplastic urethane plate for torsional stability, and there's an external TPU heel stabilizer for even more stability and control out on the trail. Your traction needs are met by a non-marking rubber outsole with 4 mm multi directional lugs. Be ready for any trail conditions in your Gypsum Mid Hiking Boots for women from Keen.
