    Burly trails beware—the Keen Targhee Mid II Hiking Shoes are on your case.

    Lacing up the Keen Men's Targhee Mid II Hiking Shoes is like shifting your feet into four-wheel drive. Their 4mm lugs grab rough terrain, while the waterproof and super-breathable eVENT insert keeps your feet dry. The dual density, compression-molded EVA midsoles cushion and absorb shock so you can return to the trailhead without achy feet. The mid-height cut protects your ankle from rolls and twists, and Keen's S3 heel support structure cups your heel so you experience less slippage and less blisters.

    Solid Boot

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 7

    I got these for wet and/or snowy hiking. I can't stand heavy shoes, so these are nice as they are pretty feathery. It may trade off a little with durability, but a light boot is worth it to me. Time will show how they hold up. As most know, for wide feet, Keen is the way to go.

    Great product

    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: 10

    This was my first pair of Keen boots. I had been looking for a lightweight pair of hiking boots and wanted something made in USA. While these are 100% made in the USA they are assembled in the USA so that is a plus.
    I am a wilderness guide and spend a lot of time in my foot wear in all kinds of conditions.
    I have only had these boots for two weeks and they feel great.
    The soles we of particular concern for me as I want to make sure they have good traction on wet surfaces and they had been performing well. The winter season is coming so I will see how they feel on snow and ice soon.
    As of now I am very pleased with this pair of boots.
    One note, I took the advise posted and ordered 1/2 size larger than what I am and they fit perfect.
    Little to no break in period.
    If your looking for a comfortable pair of boots to hike in these seem to be a good value.

    Great boot

    This is my second pair of these boots. I still have the first pair I bought to go to camp with my daughter 5 years ago. I needed a new pair to wear everyday but didn't have the wear of my old ones. They new ones fit just like the old. No break in period. Great in all kinds of weather.

    Great boot for the price!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 12

    My girlfriend bought me these for my birthday and I love them! I wore them on vacation to the Big Island of Hawaii and wore them 3/5 days, hiking in hot, humid weather as well as cold, dry weather and they held up phenomenally . On wet rock or in mud, I always had traction. They provided great ankle support and were just super comfortable overall. A lot of the reviews talk about how "these didn't hold up to me hiking 10 miles a day every day for 6 months" but that's fine because I'd gladly buy a pair of these every 6 months. If you want a solid boot that's great for weekend adventures, then this is the boot for you. I typically wear a size 12 shoe and my feet are a little wide and a size 12 in these boots fits perfectly.

    Can't really go wrong here

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

    It's a great boot or I wouldn't be on my third pair. That being said.. I'm on my third pair. Let's get to that later, first the highlights.. its a great boot! It's comfortable, it fits well and offers all the support you could hope for from a mid. Keen really stands behind their product, I mean come on they sent my replacement laces! The laces are fantastic they're textured and that really keeps them in place and tied. When my laces finally gave out I asked Keen where I could buy them, they simply asked for my shoe specs and address and a week later I had new keen laces. The one year warranty on the shoe itself however is about right on the money. Assuming you're a high mileage hiker you may likely only get spring, summer and fall out of these before the sole starts to separate. (a little gear aid seam grip applied to the sole when it first starts to separate will buy you extra boot life) If you primarily do day hikes in your local state park once or twice a month and you don't leave them caked with mud in the garage this boot could last you years. Did I mention it's a back saver, here a year ago I damaged a disc in my lower back, started wearing my Keen's as everyday footwear, and it markedly diminished the pain in my back. How much do we love them? Both my wife and I sport Keen Targhee II's when out on the trail.

    Wide, comfortable, good fit.

    I've been using these for a year now and I'm really pleased at how well they are standing up. They breath well and the waterproofing is still holding up to keeping my feet dry. The large toebox is even better than what I expected, and I'll find it hard to ever use another brand again. I pushed them past their limits with a 24Km mountain hike over broken rock and a heavy pack. I really should have been into a heavier boot for that trip for support. For regular hiking, day trips and multi-days on trails with a lighter pack, I love them. And that's what this style was made for.

    Wide, comfortable, good fit.

    These boots have been perfect for me

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

    I just ordered my 4th pair of Targhee's. Each pair has been terrific to backpack in. Yes, they do wear out eventually. I have gotten hundreds of miles of hiking out of each pair, a lot of that in New England. I like the wide toe box. I have found that the sizing does run somewhat smaller than expected, but I order one size larger than what I order for shoes and it has worked out very well. Contrary to some of the reviews I've read here, mine have never fallen apart but the tread is soft and very grippy - so they wear faster than some other treads - like car tires. The only criticism I have is the lacing loops, they are some kind of fabric that eventually wears through and then the boot is no longer useful - not even for lawn mowing. If they made those loops more durable then the boots could be useful for lighter duty even when the tread has been worn down. So I would recommend these to anyone. Just get the "right" size.

    Good Boot for the Price

    • Fit:True to size

    I got pair of Keen Targhee II for almost half off and I have had them for about a year and a half. I've used them for a daily boot as I worked at an outdoor facility, taken them on several day hikes, and taken them on a 55 mile backpacking trip on and off the trail through the Sawtooth Mountain Range. I've worn them in rain, snow, and hot summer days and I have been relatively comfortable through all of it. They are a good lightweight boot, and I felt that they were very versatile in their function. As many others have said, the soles did begin to show signs of early wear within the first few months of wearing them, but they have held up in this condition for well over 100 miles of hiking and backpacking. I was also disappointed at the waterproofing of these boots. Whenever I was making a creek crossing or even if I was just walking through a wet field of tall grass, I noticed that my feet would begin to get wet at the toes. Despite all of this, I think that they are a durable boot and a decent value for the price.

    Good Boot for the Price

    Best boots I have ever owned.

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

    I am on my 3rd pair of Targhee II's. To be clear, they are my daily wear and light hike boots and the 1st pair lasted 2-3 years. I work outside and in some tough environments and these boots can take a beating. Warm and dry in all but the coldest days. I have 5 pair of Keen boots & 2 pair of shoes and a pair of sandals and NEVER had and issue. Boots run true to size. I will note that I have a wider foot than most and these shoes fit me great. I suspect complaints of premature wear below are due to improper fit.

    do not wish to argue, however the size was fine for me and i have heard many other people complain about the soles of the boots coming apart very quickly. i was on a thru hike and hiking in rough terrain with a fully loaded pack. i received one pair that wore out within 50 miles, and they sent me a less expensive pair when i told them what happend ( they agreed to send me the mens gypsums, which they did not) and the boots they sent me in white mtn. national forest didnt even make it 30 miles before they were destroyed. i did like the way the fit and were comfortable, just not durable at all if you plan to do backcountry hiking, and dont rely on customer service to help you at all if you try to contact them if you are in backcountry. that is all and that is the truth.

    Corey, this is not a boot designed for backpacking with a fully loaded pack. I'm not surprised you had problems. This is a hiking boot...day hiking and light thru-hiking, not fully loaded backpacking boot. I love my Targhee's for dayhikes and light backpacking but would need a more substantial boot for serious backpacking.

    DO NOT PURCHASE FROM KEEN!!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These are absolutely terrible boots that don?t last, the customer service rep even told me that the tarhegee II was not made for hiking. How is a hiking boot not made for hiking? the soles came off at just about every point on the shoe within 30 miles, and when I contacted them they made me go through all these hoops, they finally agreed to send a new pair of boots but a different model ( I cant recall which one). upon receiving the boots in the properly named box, I assumed it was the boot I was told I was going to receive. after hiking 30 miles in white mtn. national forest I contacted them again and told them my boots were falling apart. It turns out they sent me a less expensive boot from the ones I originally bought. they insisted that I send them pictures of the inside of the toungue to observe the tag. the funny thing was it was just a white square ( it was like this as soon as I bought it, but did not suspect any foul play would occur) with that and the fact that the boots were already destroyed, I sympathized with them that this in fact was the boots they sent me and this was the wear that had occurred. they then started to accuse me of lying to them and trying to scam them for a free pair of boots and really insulted me. I could not believe what I was hearing from them and the situation I was in. after that I vowed to them that I would make sure I would do what I can to make sure other thru hikers would not go through the same ordeal. I was very displeased with the whole experience.

    Decent Lightweight Hiker

      I have several different pairs of Keen hikers. My Targhee II's are about 2 years old and going strong. They are built to be lightweight, so don't expect to torture them year after year. They are best suited for light hiking and are waterproof to the ankle. Comfortable but inexpensive boot for a winter jaunt, or for an all day excursion. I find them to be true to size, perhaps a bit wide, but laces can take out extra room.

      Unanswered Question

      Long story short. I purchased a pair of Targhee II in preparation for the grand canyon around November 2012. I like them well enough to have my wife pick up a 2nd pair a month later. The 2nd pair was different - same everything but it was different. I went back to the store (Gander Mtn) and complained soon they when thru there stock and found a pair like my 1st pair. I have not been able to find what I like since. Any thoughts?

      I have worn another brand for quite some time and am thinking of trying the Keen Targhee II. I have read a bunch about the wider front. Should I stick to the normal size I always get (I have somewhat wide feet anyway)? I have also a read a bit about the soles becoming separated from the boot. I currently work in Afghanistan and need a good set of boots for daily wear. Thanks in advance.

      Well, I asked if it came with keen dry or eVent material, since it has conflicting info on here, and I was told eVent. It came with keen dry and I was disappointed.

      Hello Dan,

      KEEN used eVent in the first year or so of the Targhee and anything else with a waterproof membrane in it from KEEN, but went away from it, due to it not being as durable as KEEN would of liked, also eVent had issues supplying it to KEEN. So they started to make there own, it is true that it is not as breathable as eVent, but more breathable than Gore-Tex XCR and it is superior in durability to eVent in fact KEEN has a two year warranty on KEEN Dry.
      KEEN is always working on the breathability of KEEN Dry, they use foam in the liner to protect the Membrane, for 2012 they are making the foam more breathable by punching small holes in it. This will make the membrane about 20% more permeable.

      Thanks, Jerry

      hello, I 'm from Lithuania and i'd like to buy this pair of shoes, do you send products to Lithuania?

      Best Answer

      Serge, Lithuania is not listed in the "Ship To" countries on the Help Page. In the future, I would try the Help Page or use the "Chat Now" feature to ask a customer service representative about shipping or inventory. Both of those features are on the upper right of the page. Your question is likely to sit idle here.

      Hello, I am from Australia and would like to place an order. Do you ship to us and what is the cost please? Oz Hiker

      Best Answer

      Yes backcountry.com does ship to Australia. As it says in the help section of this site, here's how to find out the shipping rates:

      "First, add the item or items to your cart. Then proceed to checkout (don’t worry—proceeding to checkout doesn’t make you obligated to purchase anything). Enter your address in the billing and shipping fields. Once you change the country, the page will show you the shipping charges."

      However some brands can't be shipped out of the USA; and that list can also be found in the help center.

      I'm looking for a light hiking shoe for my husband for christmas. I have this boot in women's and loooove it, but I had to buy a 1/2 size up. My husband wears a 12, and the next size up is a 13. Which size do you think I should go with?

      Best Answer

      Will it be summer or winter use? Keens run a half size small, based on their sandles (and a bare foot, on average socks add half a size). If he likes to wear thin socks, you could try the 12. But if he wears a sock with any sort of thickness, go with the 13.

      Hope this helps!

      I have wide feet and have found these shoes comfortable with out any break-in period. I wear them 12 hours a day as an everyday shoe. Most of the time I am standing all day and these shoes provide good support. The definitely run a little small so order half size bigger.
