Description

Heavy-duty protection from conditions in a lightweight hiking boot.

Season after season the KEEN Men's Bryce Mid WP Hiking boot will keep your toes dry and protected from harsh mountain terrain, and you'll be able to go the distance in comfort. KEEN boots aren't the bulky, heavyweight hikers you're used to, this boot instead takes a light-and-fast approach that's kind to your feet and supportive enough for short or long treks.

  • Rugged leather uppers have been waterproofed to provide protection against the elements
  • Waterproof breathable membrane inside this boot blocks moisture from the outside and allows sweaty vapor to escape from within
  • Removable footbed cradles your foot comfortably to make long miles feel like a walk in the park
  • EVA midsole and TPU shank work together to create a stable platform underfoot so you can have confidence in loose or rocky terrain
  • Rubber outsole uses multi-directional lugs that dig into the terrain for ample traction whether you're going uphill or down

Not Bad

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I ordered these hiking boots to replace a pair I've had for some time. I was able to wear them for about 15 miles of break in time around the neighborhood before taking them on a 25 mike hiking trip in the Adirondacks. They felt very comfortable and I had no issues with them during the break in time. I walked about 6 miles to and from a park, walked in a fitness trail and ran with my 9yo son at a playground. When I returned my feet were hot and sweaty but still in good shape.
On the 25 mile hiking trip I carried a pack about 20-25 pounds and has hotspots on my heals on day one. I tried to manage those but they developed into blisters and by the end of the last day I was in agony. I think these are great boots though and will try again to hike in them placing more protection on my heals. They were hot and didn't dry very fast from sweating in them all day either. A little heavy but I needed protection from roots and rocks on the trail.

lots of comfort but not for off trail

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These boots fit great right out of the box. They required almost no break in time and fit perfectly as soon as I put them on. The KEEN DRY membrane works very well and the boot dries fairly quickly which makes it great for any trail day where you'll be dealing with moisture. In regards to temperature these boots kept my feet warm on the coldest days we experienced this winter on the east coast, while not overheating in the PA summer sun. They are also great for city wear and go well anything you would wear around town. Keen boots seemed to be becoming more and more popular around campuses in the winter time so no worries about looking out of place. This boot ran into problems when hiking off the trail. The slightest bit of moisture while scrambling up a limestone slope with these shoes made for a nearly impossible and a dangerous trek. My hiking partner wasn't having nearly as hard a time as me in his Merrell Moabs and after a quick switch he wanted his boots back. My overall conclusion is that these boots are better kept on the trail where they excelled.

dry and comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Great boots so far. Wanted something waterproof, esp. for hiking in snow. These did the trick. Warm and dry, very comfortable over long hikes. But beware, they run probably a half size smaller, by which I mean if you usually wear a 9 get a 9.5. I took the insole out of mine after they stayed too tight, and that solved the problem without ruining the comfort at all.

Great So Far!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

They needed almost NO breaking in time. Fit really well from the get go. I have used them in light snow and rain and they seem fine, totally waterproof. Don't have great ventilation but I guess with ventilation comes moisture and I dont want that, so I am happy. Will hopefully take it for a few months to the Himalayas and will soon know how good they are. But so far they are great! Four stars coz I havent put them through the wringer yet.

From new to really broke in

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I am very pleased with this boot, feet never grown tired even after 10 - 12 hours on the mountain hiking like a mountain goat for 8 days. I would highly recommend this boot. Thanks Backcountry.com

Too light - poor support

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Bought these as a light hiker. Not appropriate if transversing anything but flat ground. Used on 2 day trip to hawk Mtn and did not enjoy hiking to north lookout. Wish I could return

Mid Hiking Boot Convert

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small

I got these for my dad, who is an avid hiker. Right out of the box he took them on a 10 mile hike above Ketchum, ID and they were perfect. Comfortable, sturdy and light boots that never gave any discomfort during that hike or any afterwards (even without breaking them in). The sizing was a bit of a mystery, though, as he normally wears a 10.5 and these fit more comfortably at 11.

He was hiking in low cut hiking shoes before and now can't imagine wearing anything else except these Keens.

What I was looking for...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I searched high and low, did my research, and this is the boot I ended up going with, and I couldn't be happier. I just embarked on some serious hiking in three days, 30 miles of hiking the Grand Canyon and Humphrey's Peak in AZ, and these boots didn't give me one blister or issue. Terrain was obviously treacherous and steep, and the boot was great while ascending and descending. I hiked a few times in them before my big trip just to make sure they were broken in, but honestly they didn't need any breaking in. The sole is very cushy and comfortable. The leather seems extremely durable, but amazingly soft, which was one reason they didn't need to be broken in. The boot is definitely true to size, however like all those other reviews you read, it is a bit narrow, so those with wide feet may not like the fit. I however loved it. The boot seems to hug your foot and there aren't any pressure points when fully laced. I walked through several streams and had no issue with my feet getting wet, although it might have been the 120 degree weather we had evaporating it in minutes.

If you're looking for a hiking boot that has the feeling of a cushy secure hiking shoe (if that makes sense), this is your boot. The sole, even though it is pretty cushy and comfortable, still allowed you to feel the ground you were walking on which is nice to make sure you have a secure foot placement when hiking. I'm not a fan of those bulky soles that don't allow you to feel anything. This boot was not that at all. The tread, like another review stated, was not the best for gripping, but I didn't have any issues on or off trail. I wouldn't not buy these because of the tread.

I plan to use these boots for my continued hiking and will use them this hunting season in the rain and snow. The boots seem warm, but breathed very very well. Once I wear this boot down to nothing, I will definitely be buying another pair.

Almost

(3.5 stars) I feel these would be a great pair of on-trail hiking boots. The keen adzorb sole is nice and cushy, there is a good toe-spring (good if you like it, bad if you do not), and the lacing keeps your foot snug and in place. The leather, along with front and back rubber toe caps make it a little burly and certainly durable.
Where I ran in to problems was using the boot off trail and on steep slopes. The traction just would not "grip-up". The tread pattern of the bryce is different from other keen boots. It has these "direction arrow lugs" that although is a good try for something different, just does not apply well off trail. I slipped a lot more than i expected to.
The keen.dry membrane worked well on the few stream crossings that I had encountered.
