My pair held up for a very long time. The most comfortable boot I have ever owned. Must have gotten a good pair.

Pros

  • Comfort
  • Weight

Cons

  • Can't buy them anymore

Mostly used off-trail hiking to caves and some caving trips. The weird straps broke pretty quickly from all the in-cave abuse sliding on rocks (got cut), but the boots were useable for years. Actually, I am still using them, but the heel section of at least one of them is coming apart inside so it bunches a bit and rubs my heel now.

Any boot I buy and use like this normally gets thrown in the trash within 1-2 years. These lasted about four years. Oh, and whatever the rubber is on the tread is the best I've ever used. They stick to rocks instead of slipping like Vibram soles do. You can actually feel what you are standing on just enough to know if you will slip.

No problems with these boots. If I could get them, I'd buy more.

Thanks for the review of your Keens, Unknown Caver. I'd love to see some pictures of yours to show how well they held up.

Very comfortable BUT....after 2 months of very mild use one of the lacing clips is broken and the soles on both heels is coming away from the boot (bad glue). I am returning them for a replacement pair hoping that I just got a faulty pair.

Materials: leather
Use: daily casual wear

This is by far, one the most comfortable pair of hiking boots I have ever purchased. However, durability is a serious issue. The soles started to come away from the boot after the 2nd time I wore the boot hiking. I had to super glue the sole back. For a boot over $100 this should never happen.

Use: rough trail
Price Paid: Retail
