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.

Love these! I needed a midrange walking/easy hiking shoe; more than a sneaker, less than my hike boots. I took some time to break them in, but probably didn't need to. Never felt pain or rubbing. My feet pronate and these help correct that; especially when my feet are tired. Good arch support, nice wide toe box, and cute, too.

Might be great if they made a size they fit me! These definitely run at least a whole size small. Very sad I had to return their highest size, an 11, due to being too small. I am really a size 10.5, but because these run so small, the 11's didn't even fit me. 11.5 would have probably worked, but alas, no such size exists. I will never understand why sizes cannot be the same across all shoe brands, OR why shoe designers do not accommodate for tall women.

Awesome shoes that were super comfortable from the first wearing. Trekked around Norway in them and couldn't be happier.

Targhee II vs. Targhee Mid II - There were only 3 reviews when I bought these shoes 2 months ago, and it was a tough decision between Targhee II and their high top cousin (Targhee Mid). I only wanted to buy one pair, and I chose the Targhee IIs, because I thought I would get more use out of them after my big 4-day backcountry hiking trip. My biggest concern with these, however, was that they wouldn't give enough support. They held up, and my feet felt great. More importantly, they have such a thick base/sole, that while I knew it was a risk backpacking without ankle support, I felt safe in them for the most part. These hikers can take rugged wear, but they are probably best for any kind of day hike and short sleepovers in the backcountry. To be honest, I doubt I will carry a 40-60 pound pack using these shoes again, simply because while they felt good, I still had to concentrate not to make a mis-step more than usual. Overall, they did a great job, and I've gotten a lot more use out of them since. (I did order 1/2 size up and it was fine. I like wearing thick socks to hike, so no complaints).

I'd also recommend: Keen Womens Newport H2
