    Hit the trail in any conditions.

    The Keen Durand Mid WP Men's Hiking Boot is a waterproof medium-weight hiker that's designed to offer out-of-the-box comfort for hiking and backpacking trips. It has plenty of cushioning to keep your feet comfortable on rocky trails and under loads, starting with a removable dual-density footbed, continuing to a PU midsole and heel cushion, and finishing off with an integrated PU stability shank. The waterproof nubuck leather and mesh upper is soft, comfortable, and, most importantly, outfitted with a Keen.Dry waterproof and breathable membrane to make rainy days and soggy trails nothing more than points of interest. Even the dual-compound rubber sole sticks to mud, roots, and rocks, so you never have to be discourage by rugged weather and wet ground.

    Great boots except . . .

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    These are great boots - great fit, wide toe box, comfortable out of the box, no blisters even on a 3 day backpack, waterproofing works great, soles work great and last, BUT - the boots don't survive as long as they should. The problem is the seam that runs above the toes. I've had two pair and both tore out at those seams. I had them repaired, but by sewing them up, the water barrier is breached. While this is not acceptable, I'll probably buy another pair if I can find a good sale on them. They are great, for awhile. Keen needs to seriously rethink that seam and fix it.

    Sturdy but heavier than expected

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Overall, these Keen Durand Mid Waterproof Hiking Boots have served me well on lengthy backpacking trips through muddy canyons and sandy washes alike. As many of the other reviews already mentioned, they do run wide but a thicker hiking sock did the trick for me. I don't have the strongest ankles so I was definitely looking for a taller boot that would keep me from twisting anything on rocky terrain. These boots are pretty bulky and heavy which is the price I paid for stability and control.

    As most Keen's are great for those with wide feet, the toe box on these cater to it.

    UPDATE: Something is off on the quality of these boots. Given the price I expect them to last for a lot of miles on trail. There's the joint near your pinky toe where there are three pieces of fabric that come can guess what blew on a recent hike. First the left foot and the following weekend, the right foot. I've stitched them up with nylon thread for now, but what a pain. When you think of how the foot bends, the fabric joint is right at that bending point. Grrrr. While I was a KEEN fan with prior KEEN sandals, their quality tanked with this pair of pricey boots for not a lot of miles. Moving star rating from 4 down to 1. Included a picture of the wear after it initially broke...they are about one and a half inch in length now, but sewn together the best I could do to at least make them last through the winter.

    Time to look for a single-piece fabric style.

    My feet are a bit wet

    Hello! I would like to buy this boots but not sure about size. My foot is 28.6cm long and 11.5cm wide and around my foot is 27cm in the widest part (11.5cm) of my foot. I draw my foot on a piece of paper...According to the size chart i'm just there about US 11 size or maybe 10.5. Can you, or anybody else, tell me size of your foot and take some measurements of the insole of the boots, please?
    Thank for your time.

    A decent hiking boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 9
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    The fit on these is nice but the traction is a bit lacking.


    The toe box is pretty wide which is great for folks looking for something with a tad more space.


    My foot is a 10 but I picked up a size 9 in these. My right boot is a little snug and my left boot is a tad loose. That nothing that I'm not use to. These run large.


    The Keen membrane isn't that great. I find that my feet still get wet not matter what on a wet day. My toes and forefoot are forefoot area are always the first to get wet. Not soggy wet but enough to make me not love them.


    The outsoles on these are bleak at best. I slip on rocks all the time and the toe box is definitely non-technical. But adequate on dirt and moderate trails.

    I used to own a pair of Asolo's boots and I think they were too much and too heavy and was ready for a new pair of boots. I got these pair and I just love them. They have a short break in period and feel really comfortable out of the box. The tongue depresses but the boots still feel good. They are durable and are great for walking over rocky terrain. Feet love them and I would recommend these to anyone.

    This is an update to my recent review. I took these before on a short 2 mile backpack run where the terrain was easy. I just got back from a 3 day backpacking trip where I had a 40 lbs pack. Results were terrible with these boots. I have never blistered up so bad in my life. My feet by day 3 felt like I was walking on hot coals. I had blisters all over my feet. Since it is past the 30 day return I can no longer return them. 180 dollars down the drain. I don't recommend these to anyone.

    Great boots! super comfy almost right out of the box. My break in period consisted of a few days at the office, and for me at least, they seemed to need minimal breaking in. As others have commented, really the only thing that breaks in is the tongue, it comes pretty thick and padded, but with use it starts to compress.

    I used the stock insole and it has been great. Even on fast 12-15 in 4-5 hour hikes. I've been able to keep these boots on all day with no issues or overbearing need to take them off for a breather. Even at night I just loosened up the laces and still kept them on around the campsite.

    Of course your mileage may vary, everybody's foot is different, so it may not fit everyone "right." But they are definitely worth trying on, because if they fit your foot shape you are in for a treat!

    Very light weight, well made (and made in the US!). Waterproofing was good, even in Florida's sugar sand/mud. But I do use gaiters as well.

    I haven't had keen shoes in a long time, not sure why but these boots reminded me of their quality. Definitely worth it, it's a great price for boots made this well.

    The tongue will break in

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

    I have small feet and need to where a women's shoe since refuses to sell men's shoes in smaller sizes than size 8. Depending on the brand I usually where a women's 6-7. This shoe I was perfectly between 6.5 and 7.0 where my old Keen Targhee II was a women's 7. I decided to go with the 6.5 due to the snugger fitting shoe without my toes touching the end.

    The only downside to this shoe (besides the price) was that the tongue was thicker than normal and ended up causing pressure points on the top of my foot. This quickly broke in in less than 1 week and is now very comfortable with the tongue ends tucked into the shoe instead of flaring out. I am a long time Keen fan and am very glad I upgraded to the Durand shoe. It is very comfortable (after breaking in the tongue). The sole is made of a softer rubber than my other shoes, which is good because I've been looking for a good dry canyoneering shoe for the last few years and I want a good sticky rubber to grip on the sandstone. It is supposed to be more durable than the normal rubber sole and have a longer life before falling apart.

    Overall I would recommend the Durand shoe to anyone who wants a durable waterproof hiking shoe. Just remember that while the tongue may be uncomfortable at first, give it 4-7 days and it will break in.

    Overall for size, I would rank this true to size/slightly larger than normal. I bought the women's 6.5 and 7 and wore both around the house for a few days (to keep them clean and new) while comparing different sized socks to ensure I keep the one that fits best and returned the other one.
