User Review: Keen Men's Targhee II
Materials: leather / mesh / gore lining
Use: short day hikes
Break-in Period: 6-10 miles of use
Price Paid: ~$95
Overall, this Keen shoe is great. I use them for day hikes and for general, casual use. I would not plan on using these shoes for backpacking due to the low ankle support.
Once broken in, they are a very comfortable shoe, with plenty of room for your toes and a tight fit around the ankle. My feet don't swim in the shoe either. I've done some intense circuits (up/down) and I did not have problems with my toes rubbing. Cushioning is very good, and the soles are moderately stiff (good for stepping on rocks.)
The shoes were tight during the break-in period (about 8 miles). After that, they are very comfortable.
Why 4 stars? I'm not married to the look of the shoe, but due to the comfort, I am getting over this minor issue.
