User Review: Keen Men's Targhee II Mid
Price Paid: $120
I now own the Targhee II's, but this is really about a problem I had with the original Targhees. Used around the city and on moderately rough 5-10 mile hikes. After 8 mos. the toe cap started separating from the leather. (A reviewer on another site mentioned this.) Keen has a fantastic warranty, and the dealer took them back without reservation. My size wasn't available, so they replaced them with the II's.
Of course, my primary concern is they stay in one piece. I'm glad the new style has Event waterproofing (whatever that is). However, I'm really disappointed they lightened up the tongue section. It's now the pinkish kind of color you get when you mix the colored's with the whites! Alas, I no longer have the coolest looking pair of shoes on the block.
