DeWaynewrote a review of KEEN Targhee II Mid Hiking Boot - Men's on January 20, 2009
I bought these shoes because they are the most comfotable shoes I have ever had. I have flat feet and had Surgery to correct the problem 4 months before I bought these shoes. Well I went right out on a 4 day backpacking adventure after buying them. On the second morning I Ripped the grab loop on the back of the shoes. I took them right back and got the same Shoe style because they are comfortable. The next pair lasted about 5 months of daily use. I ripped the grab loop within 3 months, they where no longer water proof after 4 months, and the tread was falling apart after 4 months. Luckly the guys at REI allowed me to return them again, as long I didn't buy them again. These shoes (they are shoes not boots) do not stand up to an active lifesyle. But they are Damb Comfortable and climb like an Approach shoe!
