User Review: Keen Men's Targhee
Materials: Leather & w/p membrain, Keen composite sole
Use: Urban fitness training
Break-in Period: Nil
Weight: approx 2lb
Price Paid: $200 NZ
This is possibly the most comfortable shoe that I have had in the last 50 years of climbing and hill walking (I am in my 70s).
They have been used for fitness training on an urban hill circuit of 7 km 5 days per week and after a mere 9 months are completely shagged. After 1 month pieces were coming adrift from the soles so back for repair. After 2 months the same this time stuck back with super glue. Now the soles are finished but the tops as good as new, there is in my humble opinion a serious design or quality control fault.
Comfort, tops ... Wear cost for me is nearly 16c per km and unacceptably expensive.
