I needed a new pair of hiking shoes to replace the 7 year old pair of Keens I had before and purchased the Targee II and the Gypsum because I couldn't choose without trying them on. I haven't hiked in them yet but right out of the box they both were fabulous (hey, they're Keens...), but I thought the footbed support on the Gypsum felt more supportive and overall sturdier than the Targee II. Lots of comments have been on the fit, and one of the reasons I like Keen so much is that I have a pretty wide foot. I can still fit in typical shoes but often need wider footbeds. The Gypsum and Targee II both are really wide in the footbed and the heel cups are REALLY wide. I could cinch them down with the laces and they'd snug up, but the heels did run wide. As for true to fit, I typically run a large 9.5 or a small 10, and order my athletic shoes in a 10 so I'll have room when my feet swell during activity. I wondered about ordering a 10.5 because of all the size reviews but I ordered a 10 and I think even with thick socks they would both fit fine. I had plenty of room and was glad I stuck with the 10. I ultimately decided on keeping the Gypsum because of the increased support and stability and sending back the Targee II. I do wish they'd come out with some other colors, they're not the most enjoyable color combinations, but as long as they do the job I'm fine with the color! Stinkin love Keen!

This is my second pair of Keens like this. I like them even better than the last pair. I have a wide foot and the shoes fit me perfectly. I wear them hiking and I wear them in the gym. No need to break them in. Straight out on the trail for an 8 mile hike.

I ordered this to be the summer version of my Voyager mid shoes which are my winter therapy shoes - I like the Gypsum at least as much - maybe more. Lightweight, cute, super comfortable from the first time I put them on and all day - very rare for me. The roomy toe box and good arch support are especially good for my feet.

I love Keen shoes. Keens usually run a bit small so I ordered 1/2 size larger, just as I have many times in the past. These are much narrower than my current Voyageur shoes. The ball of my foot was squeezed, my toes hit the top and sides of the toe box and my heel slipped. They have already been sent back in less than 24 hours. Where is the wide toe box Keen people?

I am so sad that I can't wear a Keen shoe because I think they are really cute and from all the reviews, I understand that they are really sturdy. I tried the high top and the low top and the Targhee II and the Gypsum and with every single pair, they hurt me in a different spot on different feet each time! One shoe would be okay and the other would hurt somewhere. Also the heel would slip but that may be due to the stiffness at first. I am so disappointed and will have to move on. I guess Keens are just not for everyone. Love Zappos though for their awesome service!
