I really like these shoes. I really wanted something a little lighter and less expensive, but after several months of shopping around and finding nothing comfortable (including some other Keen models) I found these in a local store. They only had the mens version, but I tried them on anyway and liked them a lot. So I came to (or rather back to Zappos) and found the womens version here. I ended up with a half size large than I normally order in Keens, primarily so I could wear thick socks in MN in the winter with them. These are serious boots (stiff and a bit heavy), but comfortable. I have worn them in snow and ice over the last month quite comfortably on several terrains. I look forward to seeing how they do in the spring when I am out dog training in marshy fields. My only complaints are small: the laces are too short, and the tab on the back to pull them on is too small to get a finger through, so nearly useless. Not deal breakers by any means.

Liked them at first. Leaked after 3 months; sole started to peel after 6 months. Wore them for a total of 9 months and know I can separate the sole from the boot like opening up a book. I am disappointed in this expensive pair of boots. You dropped the ball Keen!

I normally wear an 8 in Keens, but my lovely husband ordered an 8.5 by mistake and they fit perfect. They are a little stiff out of the box, but I’m sure they will break-in nicely. The heel box is very comfortable and snug. I did add an arch support to the boot.

Love these boots! From the moment I took them out of the box they felt like I had them for years. I wear them all the time. I read all the reviews that people suggested to buy them a half size bigger. I didn't. They fit perfectly in my size. I own about 50 or so of Keen shoes and love each and every one of them. I cannot say enough about this boot other than buy them! You will be glad you did.

I work on concrete everyday, spending 8-10 hrs on my feet, and not standing still! Good shoes that stand the test are a must for me. I now have 3 pair of Keens and they are the best!! I have different ones for the season and all I need is a little arch support and to change them everyday and they will last a long time! I have tried other shoes and work boots, but nothing keeps my feet comfortable all day long, except for my Keens!!! My feet are happy and so is my pocketbook from shopping on Zappos, the no shipping is the best! Thanks!

I love Keens, I have 8 pairs. They're all size 8.5, so when I ordered my Oregon PCT, I thought an 8.5 would work. I've taken them on 2 backpacking trips (more than 15 miles each) and it's very obvious that they're too small. I will be replacing these boots with the same pair, just a different size. Learn from my mistakes and order at least a half size up. Otherwise, these boots rock. My partner in crime has the men's version and he absolutely loves them. Keen rules, but their sizing could use a little help. I rated this 5 stars on comfort because it was the fit that made my experience uncomfortable.

I use this boot for hiking. I find it very comfortable and supportive. The waterproofing is decent but should still be treated. The toe box is roomy and allows for toe swelling on long distance hikes. The boots run 1/2 size small.

Very nice boot. Good room around toes, good support, nice fit around heel area. This will be my first real hiking boot purchase and trying to be very careful in my selection. Still in the selection process. Tried several other brands and so far this is my favorite. Only wore it around house because still have not completely made up mind. One arch seems to bother me a little, not sure if it is boot or foot. However, it looks like the insoles come out very easy if you want to use your own. If I decide to keep this boot and try it on hike, I will provide update on performance. BTW, Zappos is the best! The order process is very easy, they get the order out amazingly fast. They keep you updated on status. They keep their promise on the return process, no hassles. I will definitely use them from now on. In fact, I now feel like I am betraying them if they don't have what I am looking for and have to go somewhere else.

Pretty Good Boot - I am a big fan of Keens. I have 18 different pairs. Like most Keens, the shoe itself will last forever, but the midsole (the arch support and whatnot) is usually a different story. I can get away with using the insoles that come w/ Keens for a good while, then have to replace them. My point is that this boot seems no different, although I had really hoped and expected otherwise from a more "hardcore" hiking boot. I really do like them, the break-in period is short, and I am going to wear them on my upcoming honeymoon to Glacier Nat'l Park. It laces well, the lacing hooks hold tight, and the tongue doesn't bunch uncomfortably. I have not noticed any problems at all with seams rubbing wrong as other reviewers have. I have worn thick cotton sock (my preference) as well as mid-weight wool blend hiking socks. The tread is decent, I wish it was a little deeper. I give the look 3 stars because I really wish they had at least one other color option... maybe a dark grey with blue or green. The sizing is like most other Keens. All but one of my keens are 8.5 and these are the same. Sizing compared to regular sneakers though, it runs a half size small, imo.

Awesome Boots - I love these boots. I have had a chronic back problem for 4 years. I look for the best shoes and boots money can buy. These boots are so comfortable with great support. I own a landscaping company and I wear these boots for approx. 10 hours a day. I plan on buying a second pair for back up.

Keen Oregon PCT - I purchased these because I have loved the shoes so much and needed a pair of boots so thought I would try these and as I expected they perform just as well as the shoes. Comfortable right out of the box, keep feet dry, excellent support. Can't say enough good about the entire Keen line. I own like 10 pairs. Have suffered with heel spurs and plantar fasciitis for 20 years and since I have started wearing these, no more foot pain! I wear Keens for everything- work, walking, shopping, hiking etc. For those of us who suffer with foot troubles, the Keens have been a real blessing! Please Keen, bring in some nursing shoes (all white), that would be great!

Brands I'd also recommend: Only wear Keen's

Thanks again!! As usual Zappos has come through with a great shoe and outstanding service. Got this shoe one day later in time for my birthday. I love this shoe. I work as a flooring designer and need both support comfort and good looks. I ordered a half size larger. This shoe fits the bill. Zappos customer service is the best in the industry.

I have several pairs of Keens. I normally wear a 7.5 in their shoes (with thin socks) and an 8 in boots (with thick socks). I ordered these in an 8. They felt a little bigger than my other size 8 Keen boots. I might have tried a 7.5, but these had a very stiff piece that felt like it would rub my ankle bones raw if I hiked in them. Not sure if I got a defective pair or not. I do have pretty prominent ankle bones too, so it could just be me, but these were the first Keen's I've tried that just didn't feel right.

Keen Oregon PCT women's hiking boot - This would be a great boot if it had more room in the toe box. But it is very tight across the toes, so I had to return it. The sole appears to be wide enough, but apparently they cut the upper so tight across the toes that it squeezes your foot. They should keep the wide sole and provide a more generous cut on the upper across the forefoot.

Brands I'd also recommend: The Asolo hiking boot works for me.

Great boot, just not for me - Sad I had to return these. They are super cute, lots of cushion, great quality... but i have a wider foot and they were pinching a bit, I have never had to get wide boots before. I got both a 7 and 7.5. 7 (usually what I wear in a boot)was the right length but too narrow. 7.5 was a tad long in length, width was better but not perfect. It was a tough choice, but I decided to return, because for the price I felt to justify it they should fit perfectly. Sad it didn't work out for me!

Nope. I love Keen's shoes, particularly the Briggs. But the Oregon PCT didn't work for me because the boot was a little too narrow, and there was a "bubble" at the toe of one boot that rubbed on my toe. The bubble, I assume, was just a flaw in that particular boot, but I had hoped that Keen would use the Briggs approach so that my just slightly wider foot would work in this boot. But nope!

I absolutely love these boots. They cradle my feet and ankles in comfort while providing excellent support. They improve my posture. I try to wear them daily and not just for hiking because I find that they give my spinal column strength and stability and that encourages me to exercise all my muscles more.

This is my first pair of Keens and I bought them because of all the great reviews on comfort. I have to agree. The collars needed a brief breaking in period but otherwise they were fantastic right out of the box. They are very comfortable and supportive and seem to be very well made. I ordered my size exactly and they fit perfectly. Some reviewers said order a size up/down but I found the sizing to be true. Also, I have a wider than average foot and they still fit great. Zappos had the order here in like 12 hours and I am in the Boonies! How do they do that? Great service, couldn't be happier. Next pair of shoes...Keens from Zappos!

This is the best hiking book I've ever owned! The wide toe box is perfect for me, the support is beyond compare. I hiked Mt. Kilimanjaro and the Annapurna Circuit Trek in these and didn't have a single issue with discomfort! I normally wear a size 7 but got a 7.5 so I could comfortably wear thick hiking socks! Perfect fit!

I've had these about a month now and I love them. Warm and waterproof. It did take a few weeks to break them in so they don't rub my legs, but no big deal. They are taller than the boots I was used to wearing, but I absolutely love them. I did need to get a half size larger than usual.

I love these boots. They are well constructed, comfortable, and I love the color combination (I ordered the brindle/inca gold). My experience with keen products has led me to always order a half size up, which suited me perfectly with these as well. Also, my compliments to Zappos for wonderful customer service; they are my go-to for all things shoe related (clothes, belts, purses etc) as well! I love me some Zappos!

These fit excellently and look great! I passed on them simply because I did not need something so hardcore. I met in the middle with the Targhee. But these are great boots! I preferred size 9 and I usually wear size 8½.

I love these boots! So much so that I was trying to get some in black, but that color is only available in men's. I would say that they are very true to size. I have a lot of Keens, and have even gotten my boyfriend wearing them and he loves them too. Since the smallest men's size they had did not fit me, I am trading them in for his size, he wanted to know why I had not gotten him some already. To me, they are very comfortable, but if I wear really thick wool type socks, they are a little snug, not uncomfortable, just snug. We hike, hunt, and geocache, so I walk a lot in them. Sadly, but fortunately I did find some black ones elsewhere and I cannot wait for them to get here. I do not know what the width claims to be, but in regular socks, plenty of wiggle room, thick socks, slightly snug.

Brands I'd also recommend: Danner, more Keens.

I wore these boots on a hunting trip to S. Africa. I did not break them in first. They were wonderful. Not a single blister or chafed area. Very comfortable and supportive. I did wear them with Thorlo hiking socks.

I was hesitant to buy hiking boots online, but Keen had been highly recommended. I was not disappointed. The boots are firm enough to provide support and yet supple enough to be comfortable.
