User Review: Keen Men's Pyrenees
Materials: leather, Keen-dry
Use: short day hikes, moderate trail/ moderate load
Break-in Period: very short
Price Paid: $130
Bought the Keens with no former product knowledge. I bought the boots based on comfort of initial fit and price. Still in the breaking in stage with only one short hike with weight--1st trip out about 4 miles on easy trail with no load- got just one hot spot but very happy with boots- 2nd day just pounded pavement around town- today did about six miles w/ about thirty pounds. boots feel good--loading up to 40+ pounds for next outing and stretching out to about 9-10 miles- i think i am breaking me in more than the boots--
Pros: 1) sole has good feel==boot seems very stable on uneven surface you can feel the lugs doing their job- 2) tongue and fit around instep feel great- 3) i am hard on boots and the protection on toes does great 4) water proof
Cons: 1) i would like a little more ankle support 2) just a little warm (but they are leather and water proof) 3) i am between sizes and have to be careful with my socks- but that's me not the boot-- maybe some one will make a 10 3/4.
overall very happy.
