User Review: Keen Men's Voyageur
Price Paid: $100
I would only recommend these boots to someone who has clapped their old boots together over my head at 3am.
After wearing out my previous boots on the AT, I followed a salesman’s recommendation that these boots were just as good as my previous boots with the added benefit of a wider toe-box. What I found was the following:
Any stone or rock stepped upon will be felt directly by the foot. The footbed is simply insufficient to protect the bottoms of your feet from feeling every pebble.
The tongue of the boot is too short and along with the design of the collar and uppermost hooks for lacing it was very difficult to keep the detritus of the trail from getting down deep in your boots without gaiters.
After a single day of hiking in drizzly conditions, the glue holding the soles started to give way.
These boots were returned to the store where they were purchased after six days of use.
