Gear Review

Well made, good looking, comfy

I just got these boots and have not had a chance to wear them for a full day, but they have a great design and the footbed is very comfortable. I have other Keen shoes, and expect that these boots will live up to my expectations of exceptional comfort without a break in period. As for sizing--I wear a 6.5 usually, and, following other reviewer's advice, ordered 1/2 size up. I'm not sure I needed to do that--the fit feels a tad too roomy, but I often use inserts, so I'm not too worried. I also ordered the 7 because I wanted the Purplie color, and it was sold out in 6.5. Like some of the other reviewers, I have muscular calves, and my legs are short, so I appreciate the shorter shaft and larger leg opening, which is just right (the side buckles are real, and can be tightened for those with slimmer legs).

Back to the color--that is probably my only disappointment. I was hoping for something that really had a burnished purple cast to it (which is how the web image looks). That would have been so cool...but the actual boot is not really distinguishable from a dark, dusky brown, though the stitching down the front is definitely purple. Keen designers: next time, go for it and make some boots of leather that is really purple, and I bet Keen fans all around the globe would start a stampede to buy them.
