Changed for the Worse

I've bought Keen boots exclusively for the past ten years, but sadly, I will no longer do so because the designs and fit have changed for the worse. The foot size is just right for me, but the opening is so small that you can't pull the boots on without getting a hernia. Originally, I had the tall Betty boots (so that snow wouldn't get into the boot), but Keen doesn't offer decently tall winter boots now. Then I bought side-zip faux-fur-collar boots, but the zipper was very, very stiff and completely inadequate for the heavy-duty boot. It became unusable after about three wearings. The zipper pull was so small that it couldn't be gripped even with a pair of lightweight gloves. I paid for a feature that never really worked and have not received any satisfaction from Keen.

Warm, cute, and functional!

I like the boots so far. They’re a bit stiff but am hoping they will soften! I bought them because I could not find my favorite Keen boot which is the ankle high pull on anchorage boot for women anymore. I have been wearing this boot or version of it for more than 25 years. I love them! Now, the boot you are making for women is narrower in the toe, stiffer and less rugged. Please go back to the original style. These are your best boots ever! I wore them in all seasons to walk, hike, muck around..

nice but no

Rather heavier duty boot than what I was looking for. Sole way too stiff for me. Appearance-wise, seems solid and well made.

Bought these early for winter use so it’s a little premature to comment.

Perfect for VT Winters!

I live in Vermont and have not had a solid pair of snow boots until now! These were comfortable the INSTANT I put them on, no need to break in! I love that I can wear them as casual shoes for running errands and out in the snow!

Québec Winter

I'm in love with these boots. I purchase them in November. I have had 2 months to try them. Wow! Tried them in damp weather, slush, mud, ice and snow. Great grip, never ounce did I feel the cold or did my feet felt moist or damp. At first, I had to return them twice. I usually wear size 9/8.5 and I suffer from Plantar Fasciitis. I had to return them 2 times. I order a 9 then 8.5, too big. I finally got an 8, perfect fit. To return, was easy and fast! I feel no pain, my toes have room to move and my feet are always warm and comfy. I walk a lot in the woods, I have a 40lbs dog. For me, it's the perfect winter boot.

Was hopping for something like the Ella boot from previous seasons- this didn’t quite fit the bill. Not crazy about the look
