User Review: Keen Women's Targhee II
Materials: leather upper
Use: Oregon segment PCT - CA to WA
Break-in Period: on the trail - replacement for other shoes
Weight: 14 oz.
Price Paid: $110
I bought these shoes to replace another pair on my PCT Oregon segment hike. Within the first week I had a nasty blister on my heel and under both front toes. After 300 miles the stitching at the toe came loose on both shoes. The soles did not offer enough cushioning on the lava. I couldn't wait to get these shoes off at night. The waterproofing wore off when it came time to ford streams and rivers.
I contacted Keen when I returned. My recourse is to return the shoes where I bought them (very inconvenient since I bought them in Ashland and I live in Eastern Oregon) or get a replacement of another Keen footwear product from the company.
Unfortunately, I don't see anything that's comparable in price that I want.
