User Review: Keen Men's Targhee
Use: short hikes
Price Paid: £80
I bought a pair of Keen Targhee II online and was immediately impressed. The wide toe box was super comfy and I kept admiring my feet when walking for the first few days.
However I soon noticed that the breathability is foot rot poor, they are way too hot for me. Then after a walk in wet grass I noticed the "water proof" membrane is not actually waterproof. So they are now demoted to very comfy dog walking shoes but then after only six months the soles have worn so badly on the outside of the heel that if I wear them they turn my ankle over!
In short, sweaty, leaky and wear out in no miles at all. I replaced them with some bottom of the range Karimor boots for a third of the price, they're not waterproof, but perfect in every other respect.
