Good hiking boot/could have been great
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
The Keen Voyageur is a great mid boot that wears comfortably for hours. Its high/tough profile but soft feel means you can wear it even on the roughest of hikes or scrambles for hours on end. The major issue I have with this boot is the same one mentioned a couple of times in other reviews: The soles are grippy and comfortable, but they are not very durable. On my pair a couple of pieces pealed off the fringe of the sole and I ended up cutting them off. I think Keen can make these shoes even better by creating a more contiguous sole without little peninsulas of rubber that easily peal off, but then again... it was only small pieces that didn't really affect the overall performance of the boot.
comfortable wide toe box
The Keen is a lightweight cushy ride with plenty of air circulation. It is not a boot for all occasions. It will not keep your feet dry from outside elements but that does allow for cooler feet inside the boot.
The boot is incredible comfortable it just doesn't have the grace or power of a boot that can take on aggressive terrain season after season. But what matters is who is in the boot. The comfortable boot, with a wide toe box, works great while carrying middle weight packs on average terrain in warm climates.
the boot kind of feels like a beefed up high top
mileage into these puppies: 50-60
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Hiked in these for about 65 miles through rain, mud and many stream crossings without much of a prior break-in period. They worked a charm and were quite comfortable. When they got wet during stream crossings they dried surprisingly quickly (especially with thin wool socks). Pretty light-weight given their beefiness.
My only complaints: I can already see the glue delaminating towards the heel on one boot. This shouldn't be happening after only 65 miles, hopefully it doesn't get worse. And I do wish the toe-box were wider. If you do need a wide toe-box, these are about average, and seem narrower than other Keens I've worn in the past.
Keen does it again.
As a Keen casual dress shoe, trail shoe, boot and sandal wearer, you would think, "Well, enough already!" But no, the Voyageur Mid Hiking Boot was exactly what I was looking for to get started this year. This is a well formed and correctly sized hiking shoe that affords the luxury of extra ankle support without feeling over the top. Comfortable right out of the box and a snap to lace up and get out the door quick. They look like they'll last forever. In the past, I have found Keen sizing to be a crap shoot, both in length and breath, but they seem to have hit this one exactly right. I'm a 12 and kind of on the narrower side, and this is a near perfect fit.
KEEN Voyageur Mid Hiking Boot - Men's
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
i have used this book for anything from winter hunting to summer hiking! works great for anything! Always stay warm and dry
I bought these at Nordstrom Rack for $70 and they are my new fav boots. Held up on teo backpacking trips so far this summer above 8000ft. No blisters, no sore spots, no better boot for the cash!
These boots rock. Got me into the 100 Mile Club out in Yellowstone and I wore them everyday to work where I was on concrete all day and they did me well. Good support/cushion. Just ordered my second pair for a great deal and free 2 day shipping, win win. Hoping they're as good as the last. Thanks Keen and backcountry!
Trail to Chirripo, Costa Rica's highest peak
Felt great during my trail to Chirripo Costa Rica... Lot of mud, rain, rocky road.
Great boots, but sole unglues
Great boot - wide enough for my foot; light; very comfortable right out of the box; easy on/off; accurate color on website (slate black/harvest gold).
However... the soles on both shoes have, in several spots, come unglued. Easily fixed with Shoe-Goo, but still...
I like 'em!
I'm spending some time in Jerusalem and the hiking shoes I brought with me started to fall apart so I sent off for a pair of these. I walk 3km to and from work every day on the hard stone of Jerusalem and these boots are comfortable and, so far, durable.
I've also taken them on hikes in some rough, stoney terrain in dry river beds, Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, to the top of Masada, and around the southern desert areas.
They just fit well and they haven't shown any signs of wear even with the daily use and the hard weekend hikes. Three months with almost daily use and they are doing great. If I change my mind, I'll be back to let you know!

Love these boots
I wear these every day Hiking various trails around south and central Florida. They breathe well, alot better than the Targhee 2's they Replaced.
Fit as expected, really confortable and cool
Like walking on Concrete
I wear 11 1/2 shoes and these felt true to size. I have low arches and thinner, medium width feet. These boots accomodated my feet well, yet the uppers dug into my ankles giving me great discomfort.
Further, I wish KEEN would supply better insoles. It felt like walking on a hard concrete surface barefoot!
I greatly appreciate Backcountry's exchange policy...just got my KEEN Voyageur hiking shoes today a lot better match for my feet. Thank you Backcountry.
1 Year & Still housing my dogs.
So far these shoes have met my expectations and more. Before purchasing I read allot of reviews & hesitated because of some durability issues reported. But all the reports on how comfortable they are persuaded me to give them a try. I am so glad I did, they have done well for 1 year on many trails through mud, water, rain, snow, & even dry days. The comfort of these shoes are second to none for me. With many miles on them right now, the only wear I can see is on the soles. They still have a very usable tread life & I expect to get at least one more season out of them. Speaking of the soles, I have had no problems with slipping, they have stuck to everything, wet & dry. I am going to give trail runners a try for the 1012 summer season, but my KEEN's will be on standby. Might even buy another pair before they discontinue or change them.
Keen Voyager Mid Hiking Shoe, Men's
Excellent quality, very comfortable except they rubbed my feet in several places...had to put on adhesive tape to prevent blisters. Really hated to send them back.
Awesome performance!! But made in China
These boots are flipping sweet! They track great going up and down hill with excellent boulder hopping ability in between. One can balance on a pebble in these. Wish these were made in 'Merica........I'm on my second pair after only 2 years of aggressive use due to the bottom side 1/2" grip piece? began to separate from the sole's side bottom section (outboard). It's beginning to do it on my second pair and it did this on my ex gf's pair too. If they didn't perform so well, I would give these 4 stars. If you plan on fixed trails and not hiking up rough rock than these will last you longer than mine did, each pair. I look forward to seeing how keen reinforces this weak spot without losing the traction ability that the sole pieces provide.
I will continue to wear these and my more roughed up pair according to the situation until they are completely unserviceable because I like them so much. I will continue to purchase keen products in the future and their hiking boots without this weak spot (not all keen soles have them). Their sandals are topnotch as well.
Breathability is superior. They breathe like a running shoe. I walked around the store for 20 mins, swapping out other shoes on one foot while I kept this one on the other foot and was blown away from the huge differences from other similar boots (mostly merrells). All other boots (except for the keen voyageurs) gave me hot spots and caused sweating immediately. This was extremely obvious and noted right away.
Went into the river a few times with these with a pair of smart wool socks on and they dried out very fast afterwards. This was very surprising considering merino wool' s moisture retainability property but with continued hiking and outstanding breathability, it almost completely dried them out after about 2 hours!
These are outstanding for anyone with a wide foot like myself and are highly recommended!
Are Keen's made in china?
Are Keen's made in china?
Yes, all most all KEEN's are made in China. KEEN is starting to build some of their footwear in Portland. You can go to the KEEN website to see which one's are built in the USA.
