I bought these to replace a many years and many trails (mostly in the rugged Adirondack High Peaks) worn pair of LLBean mid-cut leather Gore-tex hiking boots. I wear orthotics for collapsed arches, heel spurs, and intermittent bouts of plantar fascia. My priorities are fit,good support,Gore-tex for muddy trails, roomy toebox,and sticky soles for wet rock. Of course, durability is important. I decided to try a low-cut hiking shoe because I have wide ankles and a higher cut always caused rub and rash issues. First the pros: These have a nice roomy toebox with the same kind of toe bumper that my Bean boots have...great for rocky trails. The soles have good grab on rock face and seem pretty stable. They accomodate orthotics. So far, the Keen-Dry system (Keen's version of Gore-tex) is holding up. I intentionally stepped in a stream and stayed dry. But, of course, because they have low tops they will not be as reliably dry as a mid-cut or higher. The low top is very comfortable. The color choices are great. I really like my choice of slate black/seneca rock, a nice medium brown with a muted plum trim.The cons: My lasat shoes were 9.5; these are size 10. I'm not sure how durable the lacing system will be because there are no eyelets through the leather or any metal at all. Instead, the laces run through a series of woven straps. The lace system does not allow for adequate adjustment for heel snugness, which I need because the heel cup is rather wide. I find myself stopping to adjust laces frequently to snug in the heel without creating too much tightness over the instep. I have a narrower heel and wider forefoot. I thought they were the best choice of several boots I tried on, but after actually hiking in them I am worried about the heel slippage as I hike uphill. I'm hoping that as they break in some more they will become more flexible and the heel will work with me better. A heavier sock is not an option unless I can find a sock with a thicker heel and normal weight toe.I like the shoes except for this heel issue. If I had felt he heel slip, I might not have kept them. but it's very hard to test a hiking boot in the house. Only a hike will tell, but then they can't be returned.I guess the bottom line is if you have a narrow heel, try a different model.

This (in the grey and pink color) still felt and looked very clunky and like a serious hiking shoe not very fun at all. More importantly, the lacing system as others have mentioned cannot cinch properly on my too narrow heel. Returned.

I have had several pairs of this particular Keen model of walking shoes. LOVE THEM! As before, I bought a size 8 this time, to give me enough room for my toes going up and down hills. Turned out I really needed a size 7 1/2 this time...not sure why. Unfortunately, I had worn my just-received size 8's twice, so I could not return them. I gave them to a friend and purchased the 7 1/2 at the Keen Garage in Portland where I was when I realized the problem and needed the correct size immediately.

I made a mistake with this one! It is just a hair too short and with heavy socks I just cannot do it. They do not stay laced either. The heel is just high enough to make my foot slide and make my toes hit. I wear an 11 so I cannot get a larger size. If you do get them go a size up.

I ordered the Keen Targhee II as well as the Merrell Moab in order to have a waterproof shoe for rainy days and traveling. For the Keens: Pros: - Felt rugged enough that I believe my feet wouldn't get wet (although I did not test this out). - Wide toe box, particularly nice when wearing thick socks. - Decent styling, colors are nice. Cons: - Difficult to cinch the laces for a tight fit. - I don't have a narrow heel, but it kept slipping - unusual for me. - When wearing, it felt like the laces were constantly coming untied, when in reality they weren't. I ended up returning the Keens and going with the Merrells, for much of these reasons. I really wanted to like the Keens (as my husband loves his!), but I simply couldn't get them to fit right. Too bad.

Boy did I make a mistake with these. I wear an 11 and they are a bit too short. I thought they were ok when I tried them on, but after wearing them for a few hours my toes are sore. They also do not stay tightly laced. I was disappointed because I have a pair of Keen Newport h2 that I LOVE.

I absolutly loved these shoes but unfortunatly they just did not work for me. I ordered the half size bigger which was correct for the length however it then made my heel slip. Even with my inserts and tied snug my heel still slipped. Boy I sure wish this would have worked for me. I loved how they looked on.

I'd also recommend: Merrel
