Comfortable, well made, breathable.


  • Quality construction
  • Nice forefoot width
  • Good overall fit


  • Fairly heavy, but seems lighter than standard models

For those that don't need a waterproof shoe/boot, Keen's new Targhee Vent is built without a waterproof liner. This makes the boot a bit lighter and much more breathable than the traditional styles.

The fit is great for my foot shape, especially nice in the forefoot, with a comfortable heel pocket. Insole seems OK, but I will replace it with a Superfeet insole for more support in the arch and heel. Mesh on sides provide ventilation. Soles are grippy.


Thanks for the info, alpine1. I hope you'll update us on how these hold up for you.
