User Review: Keen Men's Targhee II
Price Paid: $110
I have been wearing the Targee II's for a number of years now. They are probably my all time favorite shoe. My first pair lasted a good awhile but eventually split a the toe seem. I bought a new pair and with very little use other than an out to dinner, once in a while kind deal, the toe area split on the new pair.
I contacted Keen and let them know that I exected nothing on the first pair. I really didn't even expect much on the new pair other than maybe a little pro-rated help on a replacement third pair (sent detailed pictures also).
The second pair was worn so sparingly but was older than one year and the factory refused any help in any way. I have never had the problem with any other shoe or boot that I have ever worn of any type and you can see in both pair that the material overlap was extremely minimal to hold the joint together.
I like the shoe so much that I brought a third pair and only wear them at times where my dogs want to enjoy themselves and keep watch over the seam. I have seen a similar failure on a Targhee II in Vermont where I actually stopped the person and asked about them.
The Targhee II in my opinion is a great shoe but the customer service aspect of the manufacture was nonexistent in my case.
