(3.5 stars) I feel these would be a great pair of on-trail hiking boots. The keen adzorb sole is nice and cushy, there is a good toe-spring (good if you like it, bad if you do not), and the lacing keeps your foot snug and in place. The leather, along with front and back rubber toe caps make it a little burly and certainly durable.
Where I ran in to problems was using the boot off trail and on steep slopes. The traction just would not "grip-up". The tread pattern of the bryce is different from other keen boots. It has these "direction arrow lugs" that although is a good try for something different, just does not apply well off trail. I slipped a lot more than i expected to.
The keen.dry membrane worked well on the few stream crossings that I had encountered.
