    Any trail, any weather.

    The Men's Targhee III Mid Leather Waterproof Hiking Boot is Keen's answer to any trail that's considered difficult. Not only does it have the stability and support for hiking rough terrain, but it also has the waterproof, breathable protection required for hiking in variable conditions. The leather exterior is as rugged as the mesh lining is cushy and breathable, and Keen treated the interior to reduce odor buildup overtime. The rubber sole features multi-directional lugs to ensure traction on the downhill as well as the uphill.

    • Keen's iconic hiking boot for all-terrain adventures
    • Waterproof, breathable membrane underneath the rugged leather upper
    • Cleansport NXT treated mesh lining for ventilation and odor control
    • Heel counter and internal shank for stability and support
    • Rubber sole with multi-directional lugs for traction

    Produced in Thailand with poor quality

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I ordered these boots at the end of November 2018 and by the first of April 2019 with about 125 miles on them the soles were separating. This seems to be an issue with many Keen hiking boots produced in Thailand . Keen did replace them under warranty and I decided to try a different boot style thinking it would make a difference. After having the new boots (TARGHEE VENT MID) for 2 months the rubber outer sole and mid sole started separating. So much for producing Quality products. They have given themselves an out for warranty replacement. They will not replace a second pair under warranty even though they are producing crap from S.E. Asia. I wouldn't recommend Keen to my worst enemy.

    First Hiking Boots I Enjoyed

    I have always been a trail running shoe and sandal guy for all my adventures, but I tried these out for a trail work day up in the mountains. They really exceeded my expectations and may have swayed me away from the trail running only cliche that I was. I loved the wide toe box, the support, the weight, and the stability. I did 15 miles on these fresh out of the box and they were extremely comfortable the whole way. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the market for

    First Hiking Boots I Enjoyed

    Awesome Boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10.5
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I'd hiked maybe 6 miles in these boots before taking them for this 38 mile journey. No blisters! Honestly between these shoes and the pack, I was way more comfortable than I expected. The waterproofing was sufficient to cross shallow segments of stream (about 2 inches) without getting wet.

    Awesome Boots

    Nice boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    So far I haven't taken them serous hiking but I've been on little campground hikes and wearing them around town to break them in for my 2.5 week vacation. I love that they're light-weight and roomy in the ball and toes of the boot. The only issue I have with them so far is that they're hot and make my feet sweat. It's not even mid-spring and I find them best with just liner socks on, but that's what you get with waterproof / leather boots. Excellent boots so far.

    Great Hiking Boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I am a big fan of KEEN shoes. They seem to have a wider toe box than a lot of shoes these days and the Targhee III fits that bill. These hiking boots are very comfortable on the trail and provide plenty of support so you are not feeling every rock that you cross paths with. For me, that fit perfectly true to size. I wear an 11 and I picked myself up a size 11 in these boots. Would recommend to anyone that has had trouble finding good fitting boots due to wider feet or having issues with your toes being scrunched up.

    Third pair for my brother

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 205lbs

    My brother wears these all winter long to work and is on his feet at least half the day and he swears by them. While this is his third pair in about three years, I know he keeps two in rotation, so he's probably only burned through one pair in that amount of time, and he's tough on his gear, so I trust him if he goes back to a brand.

    Rugged

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 11
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Took these to Canyonlands and went on a couple hikes down there. It might've done me justice to go a half size down from my usual size 11 because my feet were moving around in them quite a bit(no blisters, thankfully). I know they were only stiff because they were fresh out of the box. There was snow and my feet stayed dry so that was really all I could hope or ask for. I know after breaking them in they'll be more comfortable and not as stiff. Overall, a very solid boot for a modest price

    Solid Wide Toe Box

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I loved these hiking boots. They have great support and are comfortable after many miles of hiking. I seem to always hike in shoes that are a touch too narrow for me and these were perfect. They had a nice wide toe box which made me feel like I could walk for ever. I would definitely recommend these for anyone with wider feet.
    The boots do very well in early morning dew and small puddles. As long as you don't get water over the top of the boot your feet will stay dry.

    Solid never was so happy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 240lbs

    These are some solid boots. Solid in density but also in character. You will feel like a mountain man once you put on these boots. Waterproof to the core and durable. Go ahead, take these on your next adventure and we will see what lasts longer, you or the boots. (PS the answer is the boots!)

    Great so far!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    First off, I have yet to put these shoes through the ringer. The 4 is tentative until I know about durability and performance in all conditions. I've been on a few hikes (nothing too strenuous) and did a little scrambling. They fit me perfectly and surprise surprise for a modern hiking boot, they were comfortable out of the box with no break in time required.
    Comfort? I barely noticed these boots at all after any of my treks. I was in no rush at all to take them off when I got to my campsite. Great breath ability, support, and style.
    Traction? I've yet to experience any slippage even when scrambling but conditions were fairly dry and ideal.
    I haven't tested them on any multiday treks, in wet conditions, or anything too rigorous so take my review with a grain of salt!

    Best hiking shoe I've ever owned.

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10.5
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    Extremely comfortable, yet rugged. Traction is designed well for climbing up a steep slope, descending down a steep slope, and grips fantastically while walking horizontally on a steep slope. Having medical issues with ankles and knees, the ankle-high design and comfort, provide complete assurance for me. An added bonus: They look awesome!

    TG3 sucks Moores law of boot quality

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    Sucks Not half the boot I'm wearing with a 1000 miles on them. Shipping this back tg2 is on order, but They probably cut its quality as well. No I won't try it on and I can't conceive of how someone can give it a 3 star or 4 ro 5 . really?

    Awesome Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    These Targhee 3's are an awesome boot, and have such great support. Nice lightweight boot, very well made, and definitely have a very supportive shank to them! These boots are also very breathable, the mesh vent that they incorporated into this Targhee 3 was such a great feature that keeps your feet nice and cool out there on long hikes. The only downside to this boot is that they are a little bit wide for my foot, however my foot is definitely on the more narrow side of things. Overall though, awesome and high performance hiker!

    Out of the Box Fit!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    These boots, I must say, are pretty darn great. normally whenever I buy a pair of boots, there is a mandatory "break-in time". These times are generally filled with much sorrow and pain. However, these boots were the first time I have had a boot be comfortable and amazing right out of the box! The expanded toe box on it was incredibly cushy, but the half shank in there still made the boot still enough for the trail. The outsole and toe cap were incredibly grippy and strong, and I was honestly surprised on how well it cushioned my foot. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is durability concerns on the leather; I have only been on a couple hikes, and the leather is already starting to scratch a little bit. I don't know, maybe Im hiking extreme trails or something.
    In conclusion, if you need a really solid and comfortable boot for some basic hiking trails, then look no further! Definitely a really amazing boot, and something I would recommend to any hiker. If you have questions about the boot or anything else, feel free to reach out! My email is zricklefs@backcountry.com.

    Out of the Box Fit!

    Extremely well designed-boot of choice

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11.5
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Right out of the box, the first thing noted was the very light weight feel in comparison to other hiking boots with similar characteristics. But, after hiking and walking for many miles in these boots, even though light weight, these boots provided significant support and stability.
    These boots are well cushioned, just enough to be comfortable but still provide stability over rocky trails and steep terrain-both uphill and downhill. Heel pocket and lacing was well designed to keep the heel in the pocket without putting too much pressure on the arch or top of foot. Waterproofing worked without issue through numerous water tests-from fording streams to walking through wet grass.
    Fit has been ideal for my somewhat wider feet.
    Highly recommend these boots without reservation as being a great value and outstanding performance.

    Great boot!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Great support without the weight. Reliably waterproof, with great traction and ankle support. Extra room in the toe helps with aggressive down hills with heavy loads. Perfect for long backpacking trips on mixed terrain! Hit me up with any questions!

    Great boot!

    The perfect combination of comfort and performance. The leather construction is extremely durable and waterproof while the roomy toe box keeps my feet comfortable mile after mile.

    I would recommend these to anyone looking for a solid pair of hiking boots, that will hold up for years and keep your feet happy.
