User Review: Keen Men's Voyageur Mid
Materials: Leather + Mesh
Use: Steep ascents with 40+lbs pack.
Break-in Period: 3-5 miles
Weight: 1 lb
Price Paid: $100
This boot is my first "real" hiking shoe and I love it.
It is comparably lightweight to other comparably featured boots and its mesh panels provide awesome ventilation. The toe is heavily rubberized and kicking into rocks on my last steep hike was worry free. These boots fit pretty true to size or maybe a 1/4 size bigger, but that allows room for a footbed and sock space. I also noticed that my toes did NOT crash into the front of the book on steep downhill descents and that was awesome.
Great boot, great price. I'm sticking with Keen from here on out.
