Wow! Very comfortable right out of the box which was a nice surprise since I've had difficulty finding hiking boots that didn't badly rub against my ankles. I've already put about 150 miles on them in less than three weeks. Highly recommend ordering half size larger than normal which is what I did for a perfect fit! Looking forward to using them on some upcoming hiking trips including trekking in Nepal this spring.

I found these boots to be extremely comfortable straight out of the box. Bought them for a honeymoon trip to NZ and needed something that would tackle all terrain. Problem came on day two in the wet, quite honestly leather soles would have been more useful. They have no grip in the wet whatsoever and both my wife and I fell several times just walking on a pavement (sidewalk) It was not as though we were climbing a mountain! They are so dangerous in the wet that I have to suggest that people utterly avoid these shoes, I have the bruises all over my legs and arms to prove how bad they are. If I can find a replacement, these are going in the trash.

Love the Keens! Many miles on these and they are still in great shape. Rugged enough for any approach, not made for the technical stuff. Am going to buy another color because everyone tells me I wear them all the time.

These are tough, rugged shoes made for hiking over rough surfaces. They will surely protect your feet and most of your ankles. These aren't made to stand around in as there is not a lot of cushy padding in the sole. You can lace them as tight or loose as you want and they will stay in that position. For extra comfort, wear two pairs of socks.

Excellent boot for not only hiking, but everyday wear as well. I took these with me on our family vacation to Disneyland. I wore them a full day in the park--14hours. My feet were very happy still at the end of the day.

This specific shoe was very disappointing in regards to construction. In the short amount of time I owned and wore this product, it literally wore out on my feet. I have had other similar Keen boots which performed much better. I understand that you can't ask for much when the Chinese are producing a shoe. It needs to be built in the US. And as far as Zappos is concerned, I have nothing but good things to say about their customer service!

This is my fourth pair of Keens. I find Keens to be very comfortable. I have only worn out one pair that I bought for work. I have the Targhee II for winter, Voyageurs for summer (great breathability for the southern heat, but much sturdier than an athletic shoe) and a pair of the Newports that served me on the Gulf Coast to Puerto Rico down through the Caribbean to Barbados and back. The Voyageurs took me through a week at Disney and were comfortable the whole time. As far as arch support I can not say, I wear custom orthotics. But I can say Keens are great for wearing RX orthotics in, that is one of the top reasons I purchase them. The greatest of all is Zappos. I am hard to fit and hard to please, but Zappos takes care of it all. Zappos brings all the styles and sizes to the front door in that white and blue box. Zappos customer service as I have experienced has been excellent, they just do what they say they are going to do, when they say they are going to do it. I am glad I found them - it is enjoyable to do business with a company like Zappos.

Brands I'd also recommend: None, I like Keen.

I love these shoes! They have a good solid platform for rocky, uneven ground, and are comfortable. I got them a half size larger than usual and they fit great.

The best lightweight hiking boot ever. Except for the one width limitation once you find the right size, they're a great fit. Rock solid performance.

I am a 52 year old female and I tried on a few pair of the Keen and found I could wear the mens size 8 1/2. Right out of the box we went on a hike in Maine on a solid rock mountain that was pretty much a 45 degree climb. My legs had to rest here and there but my feet never complained not one second, even descending. Next day we went to Acadia and hiked some trails and over boulders, jumping and climbing and still not a single complaint from my feet. Love them!

Great hiking boots! Very comfortable right out of the box with no wear-in time. Received them overnight from Zappos and hit the trail the next morning, including hiking a Colorado 14er 2 days later! The boots fit great, were quite light and yet felt very sturdy and well-made. Loving using them for both light and intense hiking/peak climbing!

Just did the whole Corsican Trail in June 2011 with it and I have been very satisfied. I did not get any blisters, had great comfort, and they were light enough. I like how Keen shoes do not compress the toes. I need to put some glue in two areas, but still I recommend it.

My first pair of Keens and am quite impressed. I bought these for work where I am on my feet all day. They have held up very well so far and am going to buy a second pair for everyday wear around town.

Having "problem" feet, I really like Keen boots because they have a very cushy foot bed which is important to me. I have owned four pairs of them. They have held up well, but then I am not very hard on shoes.

I work all day on my feet and have bought workboots that may last 6 months and they are trashed. Decided to try these and they are so comfortable and take a beating. Zappos even overnighted them for free. I'm still waiting for a refund for a different pair of shoes I returned to another website (5 weeks).

My 10 year old loves these shoes. He wears them everyday, and we don't have the usual foot stink problem we have had with keens in the past. He thinks they are very cool, and I like that they are waterproof and versatile.

I bought these in prep for a long week at a trade show. A lot of walking and standing. I tried a number of brands and these proved the most comfortable. They were great for the show use and I'm very pleased with my purchase. They fit fairly true to size, possibly slightly on the small size. My first experience with Zappos was excellent! I'll be a continuing customer. Great selection and service!

I already owned a pair of Keen low-tops just like this and really like them. When I needed a pair of mid-level boots, I tried a cheaper brand, but they were just uncomfortable. Found these mid-height Keens on Zappos for only a few dollars more than the cheaper shoes. Like my low-top Keens, these were comfortable straight out of the box. As advertised, they are waterproof. I worked in 2 inches of standing water for two hours without a leak. Have not been hiking but I have worn them all day around town. No blisters or sore spots and very comfortable. I'll stick with Keens from now on.
