Description

New trails are waiting to be discovered. Go and find 'em in the Keen Targhee II Hiking Shoes.

Try out a killer new day hike in the Keen Men's Targhee II Hiking Shoes. The eVENT waterproof barrier keeps your feet dry as you stomp through puddles and comfortable on the rocky sections of the trail. The waterproof leather upper blocks out moisture so your feet stay dry and the AEGIS Microbe Shield Treated Mesh Lining wicks sweat, which keeps you blister-free. The ESS shank provides your foot with great stability on those super steep sections, and the Secure-Fit Lace Capture System gives you easy control over the tightness of your laces.

Does the Targee have enough support for longer Hikes say 15 to 20 miles ? are they dust proof ? anyone know what they weigh ?

Responded on

I would happily wear these for a 20 mile hike, and in fact I usually wear my trail runners (which have a bit less support then these) for hikes of that length. Support really comes down to personal preference and how "in shape" your feet are. They should keep dust out of the shoe because of the eVent liner (if it's waterproof, usually it's dust proof too), but dust could still get in around the top opening obviously. According to Keen's website they tip the scales at about 16.5 oz. so just over a pound each.

I need extremely stable shoes because of arthritis in my feet and pronation. The first thing I do with any shoes is try to bend them - up and down and sidewise. If they bend- I don't buy them- orders from the podiatrist. My question is- do these "bend"? I had a pair of Keens a year ago that I wore as I hiked through Arizona. Wonderful shoes, but have no idea what kind they were. I do remember that they had some pretty big nubs on the soles.

Great Shoes But...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had a pair of these a few years ago. Right after I bought them the stitching on the toe separated. I took them back to the store and got a new pair... The exact same thing happened again. I decided just to live with it since they were really comfortable and waterproof. I eventually put some shoe goo under where the seam had separated. After about a year or so the sole had begun to wear thin and separate, but I finally killed them when I wore them while welding and sparks burned holes in the non-leather parts (pretty stupid of me). They were no longer waterproof after that. I miss these shoes but I probably won't buy them again due to all the problems I had with them.

Best Shoes Ever!

This is my third pair of these shoes. I hiked over 110 miles this Summer from one side of the Uinta Mountains to the other after these shoes were over two years old. Best shoes I have ever purchased.

My wife wears these cause she works in a zoo. No, that's not a euphemism, she works in an actual zoo! If they can stand up to gopher pits and rocky enclosures, they're good for just about anything you can throw at 'em!

3rd or 4th pair

Great shoes, order 1/2 size bigger for your foot!
Light hikers, excellent stability!!!!!!!!!
Be careful, Keen seems to need better inspectors for defects in their products, although I wear them almost exclusively, I have had to return for silly defects across different types of their shoes. However, that said. I love the shoes they make!

fav shoes

this is my 3rd pair. size 1/2 size large. Three pairs in 2 years I think or thereabouts of everyday wear.
real nice on trails for light hiking shoes. I own 5 different pair of Keen Shoes. My only complaint is I have encountered a number of factory defects in their shoes, I have had to return more than one pair over the past three years for manufacture issues which makes me wonder how they passed their inspector. But It has always been worth the return to the store because the replacements have been great.
These shoes have Excellent stability.
I have used these Targhee II shoes in the woods on the break walls when fishing, urban atmosphere.

WRONG COLOR

The "Black Olive/Jester Red" is not the same as the picture! The picture shows a gray shoe while it is actually more of an olive color. Little disappointed that they didn't check this before posting it online...

WRONG COLOR
Responded on

No shit, maybe thats why its called "black olive" and not gray

are they true to size?

Posted on

are they true to size?

Responded on

Yes they are. I usually wear a 10.5, and that size fits me perfectly in Keen hikers.

Responded on

go figure!

Good Shoe

I'm on my second pair and really like them. I have wide feet and they work well for me. My first pair had some glue issues on the sole, where the bottom tread unglued on the small strips that wrap up the side. Shoe goo fixed it. The fabric in the heel is also worn through, but I use them actively.

Responded on

Yes the glue on the bottom black soles is very poor, the upper is in great she while the bottom sole is only being held on at the toe. Great fit, feel and uppers though! I am not sure I would buy again with so many reports of poor gluing

Very Comfortable

I've had the Keen Targhee II hikers for a few weeks now and love them. i use them for kicking around and when my feet need some soothing comfort. They are warm but very comfortable. i putchased them in the woring size and was delighted to discover that Backcountry has great customer service.

Poor workmenship/ great customer service

I really like the features of Keen Targhee, waterproofing, S3 sole, blisterfree perect feet (claim to be). But I am not convinced afrer trying three pairs of them. I wear size 9, and ordered one thinking of blister free fit and design. But after second trail hike of 4 miles, my small fingers on both feet developed huge blisters, and toes were sore to touch. I used them twice again with similar results. So contacted Backcountry and they were extremely helpful in getting the exchange to 1/2 size larger. Received the shoes and the sole is separating from the leather upper at various places, the mid sole of the shoes is glued wrongly. It seems Keen has poor quality control. I contacted Backcountry again, and the they were extremely helpful in resolving the issue by exchanging for another pair, but of different color and free shipping both ways. I am not sold on Keen and probably will not consider Keen in the future, but certainly sold on the Backcountry's customer service.

Keen Targhee II Men

Just received Keen Targhee in mail today. First time Keen buyer and Backcountry shopper. Both with excellent experience. I'm very pleased with Backcountry's customer service and superfast free shipping. As other reviewers described these shoes are very comfortable from very first time, the size is true, I wear size 9 and these fits perfect even without socks. It seems the shoes comforts to the feet after a few minute. I do a lot of trail walking and can't wait to find out how these shoes fare in comfort and durability. My first impression is great.

Responded on

After wearing the shoes for second time, developed large blisters on both small toes, and entire toe was sore to touch. I wear size 9 and this seems little cramped at toe area. So contacted Backcountry, explained the problem and their customer service resolved the issue in not time by exchanging the shoes for 1/2 size larger. Lets see how do they fare.
