Overall good boot. Good ankle support and have kept my feet dry all winter. I live in the upper northwest and have worn these boots for the last 5 months. The one thing I like about them the most is they are very lightweight. My previous pair of Keen's were much heavier than these. I would recommend these boots.

I bought a pair of these in November and have already destroyed them to the point of throwing them away. They are still the most comfortable pair of boots I have owned, But I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. The non leather material on top melts very easily, but did not catch on fire. The soles are made of rubber and foam, which held up very well, but came unglued from the body of the boot in two creases on both sides. Also the boots were finally disabled by the laces cutting through five of my eyelets total between the two boots. The last of which is explicitly not covered by the manufacturers warranty. I fixed the first two issues, but without laces they are useless. Keen makes a few varieties with the steel triangular lace loops, I would suggest them.

Really hate to give a bad review on Keen footwear but I have to give this boot a thumbs down. I tried them for two weeks, working on concrete floors as a truck mechanic. The boots were tearing up my outside ankles. Tried tying them tight, or loosely and still every step was painfull. I was hoping after two weeks they would break in a little but I'm going to have to return them. I own several different pairs of Keen shoes and sandals and love them all.

These are the best boots that I have had in a decade. Right out of the box they are more comfortable than my Danners. I ordered a wide size to accommodate two thick pairs of socks, and they still have enough room to wiggle and stretch my toes. My only concern is the non leather eyelets, only due to the fact that I work in a welding shop.
