    Nice Boots!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9 womens

    Wore these Keen boots on a 5 day hike right out of the box! Had a slightly sore spot by big toe after day one but put on mole skin and adjusted the laces with no more issues. Comfortable and durable.

    Great keen hikers

    • Weight: 150lbs

    I am all about affordable. I wait for the colors to be discontinued to buy. Comfortable and fit true to size. I decided to go up half because I wanted to wear wool socks. There is a lot of shoe here, as someone used to minimalist hikers, but it does provide that extra protection needed on rough terrain. These don't slip in the heels like the lower cut keen hikers.

    Fully waterproof!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I took these on a quick weekend hike to break them in before taking them to Iceland. They're great! So comfortable right out of the box. They're also fully waterproof. My friends both had water-resistant hiking shoes, and their feet were soaked by the end of our hike (crossed a lot of creeks). I thought I would be irritated by the ankle height, but I wasnt at all. They're pretty clunky, though, from a purely aesthetic point of view. I'm usually a 7.5, sized up to an 8. With the right socks and properly trimmed toenails, they're perfect.

    Another Loving Customer

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Anytime you come across this many positive reviews of a product, you can be reasonably sure your money will be well spent.

    I picked these up for my girlfriend who was in search of a supportive shoe/boot for getting outside as well as everyday use. The fit was true to size and she reported that they were comfortable right out of the box.

    The color options are cute, but understated. Overall count us another happy customer.

    Kind of bummed

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 8.5
    • Height: 5'2"

    I've spent the last two summers working and hiking in Denali National Park and I need a new pair of mid boots to support my ankles. I read great reviews for this shoe on backcountry and recently loved the keen venice h2 sandals that I purchased. I decided to buy the shoes.

    For starters you have to pay for shipping to AK-- because I feel loyal to backcountry I purchased the shoes from them and paid for shipping.

    I took these shoes on one 5 mile hike-- not long but very steep-- and was bummed out. These shoes hurt my feet no matter how I tied them. I'm 5'2" and a size 8, though I always buy 8.5 for hiking shoes. I have a wide foot and I felt like the structure of the shoe didn't focus as much on arch support as cushioning. The ascent hurt but the descent was brutal. My toes were jamming in the front of the shoe even though I bought the extra half size up. The shoe felt too narrow mid foot and with a mile to go I switched to my h2 sandals to keep from getting toe blisters. Ankle support was great.

    Now I have to pay for shipping to return my shoes to backcountry and I will be paying for shipping for the exchanges to come. If you live in Alaska, I'd recommend buying on Amazon because if your product doesn't work you're going to be out $60 for brand loyalty.

    This boot is amazing! My feet swell after long hikes, so I bought a half size up. I have weak ankles, and sadly this boot doesn't have too much in the way of ankle support. I did have to return them for that reason, otherwise I would have kept them!

    Did not disappoint!

    My husband and both teenage sons own this boot. It was mom's turn and I did not hesitate to order this style since my husband is in his second pair. Comfortable from the get go. I'm wearing them for short walks around the neighborhood only to break in the stiffness of the ankle a bit before a longer hike. Love the color combo!

    Love them! No blisters

    • Fit: True to size

    I bought these boots to go on a weekend back country hiking trip with my boyfriend. I did a lot of research before purchasing a pair, and these were the boots with the best reviews I found. They are AMAZING. I wore them a couple times before the trip to break them in, and it wasn't necessary. I would not have survived the weekend without them. We were hiking some rough terrain, and I came out with zero blisters or aches. I even slipped on some rocks into the creek (gracefully) and my feet remained dry! I definitely would have rolled my ankle without these boots on the down hill section of our hike. All in all I am extremely pleased! I recommend ordering a size up and lacing them tight. I usually wear a 7 - 71/2 and I ordered an 8.

    Best Boot Ever

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

    I have had my Keen boots for 6 yrs now - I wear them fall, winter and spring for hiking, snowshoeing and they are the best - from day one fit like a glove - worth every penny and 6 years later still look new -

    Moms boots needed an update

    • Fit: Runs small

    My mom was needing some new boots and I heard these were good. I did hear they ran a little small, so I bought her a half size up and they worked out great! They don't provide a ton of ankle support, but they are comfortable, and good for most terrain.

    Ok Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wore them backpacking in Shenandoah (before all the wildfire...). I usually get heel pain after hiking but they helped with that. I did get some blisters though. They also make my already big feet look humongous :0 Overall, they're an ok boot. I wouldn't buy them again, but I didn't send them back either.

    Updated review

    I wrote a review on these when I got them and wore them around a bit. That review still stands. Awesome boot. I did however take them on a 5 hour winter hike so I have more to add. I took them up Mount Osceola and East Osceola in New Hampshire. We just got 8 extra inches of snow on too of 5-6 inches of compacted snow. They fit amazing and the spikes fit over the boot. This was the first real usage of this pair over a 9 mile hike. The only downside is they are not as waterproof as I would like. However I realized this going in to the hike and still wanted to put them to the test. I did not get a single blister so I am overall impressed with them. They will make great summer/fall boots but are not for winter hikes. They feel amazing and my feet were not sore at all just cold/wet.

    Great seasonal hikers

    My Keen's just came in. Amazing boot. They fit true to size I am an 8womens or an 8.5 so I erred on the side of caution and got the 8.5. They fit amazing and are great because I have very wide, flat feet and there is plenty of room. Soft/comfortable feel on the inside. Very lightweight which is awesome. I compared them to my winter rated boots. I think they will do well in spring, summer and fall but I'm not feeling as much warmth so I will use my old ones this winter season. Overall amazing boot and I can't wait til New Hampshire weather changes so I can use them. Very pleased that I don't have to break them in. They feel like they were made for my foot and they should be just the right weight/warmth for summer/fall hikes.

    Finally got my mom in a good boot

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Got my mom an early Christmas present. She was stoked on everything but the color since we did not have the one she saw at REI. She usually wears an 8 and these fit true to size out of the box. Here is what she had to say.

    "I recently received a pair of Keen's Targhee ll mid hiking boot in neutral gray. I have had problems finding a boot that is wide enough and doesn't rub my ankles wrong. I have worn them twice outside walking the dogs after having worn them a few days in the house. I am very satisfied with the fit, the color and the sturdiness of the boot. My feet stayed warm and comfortable and I could have walked for hours. I would highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for a good, solid foundation in a shoe. I look forward to getting them out hiking. "

    Great for Wide Feet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    My feet are wide in the toe box area- I had bunion surgery at a young age- so I am always on the look out for wide shoes that allow my toes to splay naturally when walking. These boots are perfect for wide feet! I do wish they were a bit narrower in the heel, but a thick sock and good lacing does wonders. I am considering putting in a heel cup for longer hikes. I have never had a blister from wearing these shoes, even right out of the box.

    Since they are waterproof, they do run warm, and I am considering getting the Voyageurs for warmer weather hiking. I have them in the black olive/ slate rose color, which is just the right color for me- brown hides hiking dust, and light pink laces add a touch of femininity.

    I did size up from my usual 8 to an 8.5.

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 5'7"

    Comfortable, but there's too much room at the heel. I have to make sure that they're laced tight and wear a heel cup for a snug fit. I wouldn't recommend these for long hikes or backpacking trips. After 2 hours, my feet are sooo sweaty in these boots.

    I ordered these and they arrived 2 days later! I wore them straight from the box to work. I'm on asphalt and concrete 10 hours a day. My feet feel great and they've stayed warm and dry! 9.5( my usual size) fit perfectly! Highly recommend!

    Perfect hiking shoe

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

    I ordered this shoe not too long ago and have used it only a few times, but those few times have been great! Each time I've gone out with these it's been rainy, slushy, and overall just gross weather outside. These have held up perfectly! Kept my feet dry and warm, and fit perfectly. Highly recommended!

    Rethinking Targhee II

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought my 1st pair of Keen Targhee II's while hiking the AT in 2012. I loved them and have purchased 3 more pairs since then. BUT, this pair (same size) gave me shin splints after 2 short hikes so they are going back. Am I disappointed!

    How does the ankle support tend to be? My only concern with these boots is a lack of ankle support, because I have a bad tendency of rolling my ankles accidentally, especially when I'm a little tired and still have miles to finish. Thanks!

    Hey Joanna,



    Those rocks or uneven surfaces aren't our ankles friends sometimes. These will actually have a surprisingly great support system for what you're needing. The support as a mid and then some. If you're looking for a durable and comfortable boot with the support for long hikes, this one is for you.

    Unanswered Question

    I am 40 yrs. old and my awesome father booked a jam packed trip for he and I to go to the Grand Canyon to celebrate my "half time". Unfortunately, one month ago, I severely sprained my ankle. I am finally out of my "air Jordan boot", army girls so affectionately call it, but am still in my lace up brace. Absolutely NOTHING is standing (or gimping) in my way from enjoying this trip, however I am looking for sound advice as to a specific boot that I can wear with my brace that will keep me grounded and without a bunch-o worry on my vacation. Any serious advice would be greatly appreciated. Cost of boot or half boot is not a factor.

    I'm looking for a water-proof mid trail-running shoe. Can you run in these?

    Not to redirect you from Keen or anything, these are an awesome hiking shoe, but The North Face Hedgehog Mid GTX XCR or the Montrail Hardrock Mid '09 GTX (TNF2845,MON0104)are a little more centered towards running than what Keen has, plus they are both Gore Tex and therefore guaranteed to be waterproof.

    On keenfootwear.com it states that the Targhees are endowed with the Keen-Dry waterproofing system, but in reading reviews, some state they weren't waterproof at all! Should I believe the reviews, or were they just written by silly people?
