Great shoe

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Size Bought: 8m

Got these and they are wonderful. They do run small, normally I wear 7 or 7.5 and I needed and 8. The fact that they are boots solves the problem I have with most low cut Keen shoes whereby my heal seems too loose and often feels as if it will pull out. On top of it all, they look good too. Backcountry order was a breeze and quick too

Comfy little boot

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

Love the comfort of Keen but was skeptical due to past quality issues but I've had these for almost six months and so far the sole has stayed in tact! Used these daily for work putting 2-4 miles a day on them, weekend snowshoe tours and some short hikes this spring. Very happy with the purchase!

Typical of Keen

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

Boots arrived; looked great, comfortable, (keen's run a little wide normally and so do my feet), aggressive tread, and large top cap. These are all of the reasons that I stopped buying regular work boots and switched to backpacking or hiking boots. But on day three of work, one of the speed hooks got snagged on a a piece of wood and snapped in half. It looks like they used an alloy to cut down on weight, but c'mon just use steel, we're talking about 4 speed hooks. I decided to roll with it until I could send them back, by using the remaining speed hooks and looping the laces behind my ankle and then tying them in front like normal. A week later I was tying my shoes in the morning and ripped another speed hook right out of the boot, rivets and all. Obviously there are some design flaws with this one. Luckily Backcountry is there to stand behind the products they sell.
