    Ok Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wore them backpacking in Shenandoah (before all the wildfire...). I usually get heel pain after hiking but they helped with that. I did get some blisters though. They also make my already big feet look humongous :0 Overall, they're an ok boot. I wouldn't buy them again, but I didn't send them back either.

    Updated review

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

    I wrote a review on these when I got them and wore them around a bit. That review still stands. Awesome boot. I did however take them on a 5 hour winter hike so I have more to add. I took them up Mount Osceola and East Osceola in New Hampshire. We just got 8 extra inches of snow on too of 5-6 inches of compacted snow. They fit amazing and the spikes fit over the boot. This was the first real usage of this pair over a 9 mile hike. The only downside is they are not as waterproof as I would like. However I realized this going in to the hike and still wanted to put them to the test. I did not get a single blister so I am overall impressed with them. They will make great summer/fall boots but are not for winter hikes. They feel amazing and my feet were not sore at all just cold/wet.

    Great seasonal hikers

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    My Keen's just came in. Amazing boot. They fit true to size I am an 8womens or an 8.5 so I erred on the side of caution and got the 8.5. They fit amazing and are great because I have very wide, flat feet and there is plenty of room. Soft/comfortable feel on the inside. Very lightweight which is awesome. I compared them to my winter rated boots. I think they will do well in spring, summer and fall but I'm not feeling as much warmth so I will use my old ones this winter season. Overall amazing boot and I can't wait til New Hampshire weather changes so I can use them. Very pleased that I don't have to break them in. They feel like they were made for my foot and they should be just the right weight/warmth for summer/fall hikes.

    Finally got my mom in a good boot

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Got my mom an early Christmas present. She was stoked on everything but the color since we did not have the one she saw at REI. She usually wears an 8 and these fit true to size out of the box. Here is what she had to say.

    "I recently received a pair of Keen's Targhee ll mid hiking boot in neutral gray. I have had problems finding a boot that is wide enough and doesn't rub my ankles wrong. I have worn them twice outside walking the dogs after having worn them a few days in the house. I am very satisfied with the fit, the color and the sturdiness of the boot. My feet stayed warm and comfortable and I could have walked for hours. I would highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for a good, solid foundation in a shoe. I look forward to getting them out hiking. "

    Great for Wide Feet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    My feet are wide in the toe box area- I had bunion surgery at a young age- so I am always on the look out for wide shoes that allow my toes to splay naturally when walking. These boots are perfect for wide feet! I do wish they were a bit narrower in the heel, but a thick sock and good lacing does wonders. I am considering putting in a heel cup for longer hikes. I have never had a blister from wearing these shoes, even right out of the box.

    Since they are waterproof, they do run warm, and I am considering getting the Voyageurs for warmer weather hiking. I have them in the black olive/ slate rose color, which is just the right color for me- brown hides hiking dust, and light pink laces add a touch of femininity.

    I did size up from my usual 8 to an 8.5.

    Comfy for wide feet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10

    Comfortable, but there's too much room at the heel. I have to make sure that they're laced tight and wear a heel cup for a snug fit. I wouldn't recommend these for long hikes or backpacking trips. After 2 hours, my feet are sooo sweaty in these boots.

    Love these boots!

    • Size Bought: 9.5med

    I ordered these and they arrived 2 days later! I wore them straight from the box to work. I'm on asphalt and concrete 10 hours a day. My feet feel great and they've stayed warm and dry! 9.5( my usual size) fit perfectly! Highly recommend!

    Perfect hiking shoe

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

    I ordered this shoe not too long ago and have used it only a few times, but those few times have been great! Each time I've gone out with these it's been rainy, slushy, and overall just gross weather outside. These have held up perfectly! Kept my feet dry and warm, and fit perfectly. Highly recommended!

    Rethinking Targhee II

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought my 1st pair of Keen Targhee II's while hiking the AT in 2012. I loved them and have purchased 3 more pairs since then. BUT, this pair (same size) gave me shin splints after 2 short hikes so they are going back. Am I disappointed!

    A Cut Above The Rest!

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

    I purchased these and a pair of Superfeet Orange insoles for my wife for our trip to Glenwood Springs, CO. We hiked for 3 hrs to Hanging Lake up steep rocky inclines. Not one turned ankle or one blister. She said her Keen Targhee's are by far the most comfortable hiking boots she has ever worn!

    Best hiking boots I've tried

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

    Okay, to be fair...they are the only hiking boots I've tried. I love hiking, but until now had just worn tennis shoes on my hikes. When my husband and I decided to plan a trip to Ireland that included many days filled with hikes, I realized it was time to make the hiking boot investment. I did loads of research on which boots were the highest rated, keeping in mind the budget I was on. I was also looking for something that I wouldn't look terribly "butch" wearing. I found these, ordered them, broke them in for about 2 weeks, and left for Ireland. We hiked all throughout the Wicklow Mountains as well as the Cliffs of Moher, sometimes in pouring rain. I should add, I have bunions on both feet, which sometimes make shoes uncomfortable to wear. These boots kept my feet dry, warm, and they were totally comfortable! I didn't regret this purchase for one moment!

    Best hiking boots I've tried

    Super flat

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

    Unfortunately I tried these out as hiking boots and realized they weren't for me after an 8 hour hike up Algonquin in the Adirondacks. Even though I have very flat / wide feet these were apparently too flat even for me as they caused pain in my arches. On the positive side I find them to be very waterproof and durable. Instead of their intended purpose I now use them as a winter boot for walking around in slush and light snow. I will be sticking to my tried-and-true Merrels for hiking.

    Right out of the box...

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

    You can literally buy these one day and hike the next. I bought 1/2 size larger than normal shoe size and the fit is perfect for up or down hill. These are great boots. I plan to get at least one great year of trail use from these. The Targhee II is an excellent all-around boot. If you're looking for super waterproof, spend more money. I did not appreciate that these were shipped with a 5-hour energy drink. (Does one really need 8333% of the daily recommended B12?)

    Not good for intense hikes/rain

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

    I wore these boots starting in Maine on the Appalachian Trail. I loved them for my short hikes before the trip, and bought two pairs. They seemed to be water proof, but after two weeks in the rain in Maine, they just stayed wet. They weren't breathable, and my feet were rarely dry. Within two months the bottoms started wearing off, and the laces broke. I would recommend these for dry, less intense hikes because they are really comfortable. But they didn't seem to hold up for adverse weather, and hiking on a lot of rocks.

    Love these boots!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    After planning a very last minute mountain hiking trip, I realized I didn't have appropriate footwear(the boots I had didn't fit correctly) so a week before the trip, I bought these. I wore them to work everyday hoping to break them in a little, turns out, I had nothing to worry about. These are by far the most comfortable boots I have ever owned, after hiking straight up (and down), no blisters or hotspots and because of the wonderful wide toe box, my toes didn't hurt either(did I mention the extremely steep trail), they also provide plenty of ankle support. As advertised, they are waterproof, I sank in ankle deep mud/water multiple times and my feet stayed dry, they don't breathe as well as other hikers I've had though so definitely wear wool socks. They do run small, I usually wear 8 but got 8 1/2 instead, any smaller and they wouldn't have fit. These boots are my first pair of Keens but definitely not the last!

    Love these boots!

    not so waterproof

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    Very comfortable. I was sad to find out that there were not as waterproof as advertised. I ended up having to get a full size larger than what I normally take but once I found my size they are so comfortable.

    I could live in these things

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

    These boots are literally the most comfortable shoes I own. I can hike for days in these things and not get a single blister. Just be sure that if you're going to be sweating a lot, wear wool socks (no need to double up pairs, either). Also, when sizing, make sure that your toes have room to wiggle, and that they can't reach the end. There's a lot of good support, and I've never had a problem with my ankles in these boots. I will definitely buy another pair when mine kick it!

    Maybe I have a faulty pair?

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

    The reviews here are so positive, that I am now thinking I might have a faulty pair? I just got back from a couple days of moderate to intense hiking and I feel like these boots let me down. I wore them all week while on this hiking trip as well. No major rubs or blisters (but I am careful to address those quickly with bandaids/moleskins to avoid them). I found that they were not breathable at all, and oddly enough, they still let water in after wearing them in the rain and stepping in a few muddy/puddles. It wasn't pouring, just a steady, light rain and the puddles weren't very deep---I was disappointed in their waterproofness. I also found them very slippery on wet rock. I will say that they are pretty comfortable right out of the box, but the cons have outweighed the pros for me.

    Unanswered Question

    I am 40 yrs. old and my awesome father booked a jam packed trip for he and I to go to the Grand Canyon to celebrate my "half time". Unfortunately, one month ago, I severely sprained my ankle. I am finally out of my "air Jordan boot", army girls so affectionately call it, but am still in my lace up brace. Absolutely NOTHING is standing (or gimping) in my way from enjoying this trip, however I am looking for sound advice as to a specific boot that I can wear with my brace that will keep me grounded and without a bunch-o worry on my vacation. Any serious advice would be greatly appreciated. Cost of boot or half boot is not a factor.

    I'm looking for a water-proof mid trail-running shoe. Can you run in these?

    Not to redirect you from Keen or anything, these are an awesome hiking shoe, but The North Face Hedgehog Mid GTX XCR or the Montrail Hardrock Mid '09 GTX (TNF2845,MON0104)are a little more centered towards running than what Keen has, plus they are both Gore Tex and therefore guaranteed to be waterproof.

    On keenfootwear.com it states that the Targhees are endowed with the Keen-Dry waterproofing system, but in reading reviews, some state they weren't waterproof at all! Should I believe the reviews, or were they just written by silly people?
