Description

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.

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

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • 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.

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.

DO NOT PURCHASE FROM KEEN!!

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

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.

Worst shoe ever?

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the worst shoe I have ever owned. But why is it so bad?
1) It is glued together by children in China or Vietnam so you know its the poorest of quality
2) I used them as a work boot in rough terrain. I thought this would be fine for walking long distances with a heavy pack. Boy was I wrong.
3) They are super comfy if you just wear them around the city. Its a walking shoe not a hiking "boot"
If you dont believe me I am posting pictures of what my boots looked like after 4 months (only 4 months!) of daily use hiking long distances (~10 miles a day). Keen sucks, they really are the worst quality boots out there. Unfortunately they are trendy and people want them. Fork out some extra dough and get quality boots if you want long use. I'd recommend Zamberlain or Asolo.
In my pictures you will see that both my boots failed in the same place, causing huge holes in the side of my boots to let lots of dirt under my sole. If you're into that, these boots are great! The holes came open on day 17 (Right boot) and day 53 (left boot) of my job. A fox chewed my lace in half so I cant blame keen for that, but I wish I could. Trad on the bottom started coming off within the first month.
Keen does have a 1 year warranty, but I didnt want another pair of terrible shoes. I really hate these shoes and hope you wont buy them. The 1 star "straight up sucks"rating is well deserved. I wish I had more hands, SO I COULD GIVE THIS BOOT 4 THUMBS DOWN!

So true. All of Keen's hikers are very comfy but they fall apart in a hurry if you do more than walk in them.

Responded on

30days per month x 4 months 10 miles per day.... What did you think they would look like? From the holes in the boots, clearly they did no fit your foot. Keens run a bit wide and I suspect you have a narrow foot from the blow out here.
Keep trek'n but get some boots that fit.

great for hiking

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love the way they feel when hiking/walking. Great design really seem to energize my feet. They can get warm and sometimes feet feel wet but that is from the heat. They seem to do a good job in wet conditions.

I bought these for hiking and disc golf, but not sure I like them for disc golf. They are a bit bulky and make it difficult to get foot rotation on follow through. Love them for hiking though and the winter weather.

Unanswered Question

I have worn another brand for quite some...

Posted on

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.
