No reviews?! I bought these back in the fall and hiked about 90 miles right out of the box in them over the course of a couple months along the AT in NE Pennsylvania (the rockiest section of the entire AT). I've never worn hiking boots before so I cinched them tight around my ankles to tackle the extremely rocky trails. Well little did I know that I had no need for this and bruised my ankles very badly. The boot material is very rugged and I had no idea this would happen so it's not entirely Keen's fault for this. I'll chalk it up to user error. That's the only reason I would give these 4 out of 5 stars. Other than that mishap, now keeping the top lace loops very loose, these boots are fantastic. They look completely beaten up but still perform perfectly. They're very comfortable and I can fit medium and thick socks on with no problems or hot spots.

These weren't comfortable for me because of the fit but the material also wasn't what I was looking for. I like to have a lot of mobility when I go hiking or walking around and these were not cut the right way for that. If anything, these are most applicable for casual wear than for active wear.

Can't layer w/out Merino

4 out of 5 because the fit was a little weird - tight on my midsection (which is my smallest body part) and loose in the arms. I wish it were cut a little bit longer in the torso. But aside from that, great lightweight base layer. I wore mine recently to hike Mt. Marcy in NY and it kept me very comfortable and completely dry even when I was sweating.

Awesome socks, can't beat the sale price either!

I bought these on sale so it made it all the better. They're my first pair of hiking socks and the first time I wore them was a 15 mile/7.5 hour hike up Mt. Marcy (the tallest peak in NY). They were awesome and I am sooooo glad I used them. I think my feet would have been completely trashed had it not been for great, wool, hiking socks to go along with my hiking shoes. Not one blister, sore spot, or anything. I've attached a picture of a second pair I wore two days later hiking Mt. Mansfield in VT. This was on the summit!

These sneaks are fantastic - lightweight, comfy, plenty of support and cushion. The only thing to note, as others have, is that the tongue design could be better. Definitely wear them around a little bit before you need to go hiking. The tongue folds tend to hurt a little bit on the top of your feet. Otherwise awesome shoe!

I just tried mine on and I love it! I wasn't sure what weight it would be and/or how scratchy the material would be but it's none of those things at all. It's lighter weight than I expected in that when you look at the picture it looks like it may weigh like 6 lbs. lol. But it doesn't at all. It's super comfy and you can move all around in it with ease. The cut and the fit on me was perfect. I can't wait to wear this!

It's a lot heavier weight than I expected but there's nothing wrong with that. I absolutely love the look, the fit, and the style of it. The hood is huuuuuge though.

The only thing to mention is that the bottom elastic around the waist for me is pretty snug and a lot tighter than jacket elastics usually are. But hey, that could just be the style. I don't know. So look out for that if you can. Otherwise, love love love it!

I'm also the type that has a SUPER narrow and pretty small head/face. Nothing ever fits me and I generally buy kid's sunglasses. I have a pair of Oakley's Women's Radars and they restored my faith in a sunglass company. So when I saw these and that they were made for smaller faces, I was hooked because I've always wanted an aviator-style sunglass but they all look stupid on me. I ordered these and no lie, the first time I wore them after one of my bike races, I had 4 PEOPLE compliment how great they looked and how much they liked them and even all tried them on!
