This boot is easy to get on & off and solves the problem of coming in & out of the house frequently & needing to take boots off each time. I have a high instep & usually have difficulty with pull-on boots, but these go on easily. They are marked as "D" width but, although "D" is usually too narrow for me, these fit well (this is why I marked the width as wider than marked - for me that is a good thing!). They do not slop up & down in the heel either, but stay put pretty well. There is room for a medium weight sock - for extra warmth - but not for heavy weight. These boots are not as warm as I had hoped. My toes get cold pretty fast in only moderately cold weather (low 30's to high 20's F) and I am usually pretty active working outside - not just standing around. Since the ankles are covered only by elastic on both sides, my ankles get cold quickly. Wearing a pair of gaiters with these boots helps keep ankles warm (but gaiters negate the easy on/off feature). Due to the slight flare in front and back at the top of the boot shaft and the pull-on tabs, pant legs tend to get caught on top of the boot and I'm constantly adjusting the pant legs back down around the boot to keep snow & debris out (gaiters help with this too). Traction on snow & ice is excellent, especially on packed snow. These are comfortable to walk/hike in for moderate distances of a couple miles or so. These are marked a "waterproof" but the rough-out nubuck uppers soak up water like a sponge. The water may not be leaking through the inner waterproof lining, but the soaked leather makes it feel like they are damp and cold inside. And the soaked uppers freeze. I am going to treat the uppers with an oil - probably Red Wing Boot Oil - to make the uppers more water resistant and, hopefully, make them shed water better. This will almost certainly make the boots a much darker color. That reminds me, these boots are very true to the described color and look just like the photos on Zappos. I would like better arch support.

What an exellent winter pull-on. They started out feeling a little narrow but after a little walking around they feel perfect. I have never purchased a pair of Keens that are insulated so that could be why they felt a little more narrow than usual.I now have purched 7 pairs of this brand of shoes and I really can't think of anything negative to say about them.

Terrific shoe for some very tender feet. I wish it came in an E width, but I got a half size larger and that seemed to help.

I love these boots! I ordered a size too small, and called customer service. They e-mailed me a free return shipping label, and had the new size to me within two days! These guys are awesome! Now that there is snow on the ground, I am glad that I bought them. They are a little expensive, but high quality and very comfortable. They are worth the price.

I bought these for my husband. He likes them a lot. They are comfortable and warm--what else is needed? The style is fairly neutral, too.

This color is nowhere near as brown as it is pictured.The color is nearer to an onion skin than a mushroom. I didn't want black boots, but that's what I'm going to order now. This color is just bad. Sorry.

from Anchorage, Alaska

I really like the slip on boot concept and have had good experiences with other brands in the past. Since Anchorage has a long duration of ice and snow conditions for the most of the year, I'm always on the lookout for a good winter boot that can run into the non-winter area as well. So far this boot has done really well. The traction is better than the other boots I've had and is very snug and supportive but still flexible. I've yet to have this in the ice and snow but it's performance in wet/dry city and trail conditions is great. I would suggest buying a half a size larger than you normally buy (I generally buy half a size up typically because of thicker socks - I should have made it a whole size). They can be somewhat tight if your feet swell any at all after a long day. Other thoughts: Buy a pair of ceder shoe trees - it helps keep your boot around longer and in better condition.

I am a Keen lover. These are a little stiffer than the non thinsulate version of them I had previously. I also needed to order a half size larger, due to the thinsulate. Otherwise comfortable, but stiff.

I ordered my father's regular shoe size and this was too small. He also had a hard time pulling it on his foot (he is elderly).

Brands I'd also recommend: The Sorrel boot was easier for my father to pull on and we bought it (in a larger size.)

Great boots. They look nice, fit well, and are easy to pull on and off. I ordered one size larger and they fit perfectly. In the rain and snow my feet stay dry, they have great traction, and are very comfortable to walk in. For the price, quality, and comfort, I give 5 stars. Zappos rocks.

A little tight in the toe box. I assume that is because it is a pull-on. But it stretched a little on use and is a fine boot.

Very comfy and practical boot. Easy to walk in and can even be used as an everyday shoe. Although the boot keeps your feet warm when you are active outside, when I wore them to a football game and sat with my feel on cold concrete for 3 hours at a temperature of roughly 30 degrees F, my feet got cold.

Follow-up to my, Robert G, previous review. I treated the uppers with Red Wing boot oil and it helped a lot to keep the uppers from soaking up water. Water beads up on them now and they seem warmer. The boot oil did change the color to very dark brown - nearly black, but they are work boots and that does not matter.

My son has wide feet and normally wears Keen shoes in the medium width and loves them. We were surprised that this boot didn't fit at all; he couldn't get his foot past the boot bend because it was too narrow. It's a nice looking boot and seems well made and we would have kept them if they fit.

The first posted picture that I saw on Zappos of Keens Anchorage Boot was "Dark brown" in color. A rich, deep dark brown which Keens labeled as "Shitake". Before completing my order I spoke with a "very polite" Zappos customer service rep who advised me to order 1 size larger than my actual shoe size, which I did. I received my boots the following day. They were (as advertised) a rich dark brown, just what I wanted. But unfortunately, even though I ordered a full size larger, they were still too small (very frustrating). Zappos sent me another pair the following day, I was very impressed! Unfortunately though the 2nd pair that Zappos sent me were a different color and labeled differently as well; "Dark Earth/ Shitake" which are much lighter in color and have a very light green colored cast. Disappointed, I called Zappos and explained what happened to another "very polite" customer service rep. The very next day I received another pair but they were the same light colored brown. Annoyed, but for some reason I decided to keep them. Wore them around the apartment for 24 hours to make sure that they fit. Decided that they felt fine. Went outside walked around the city only to discover that they don't fit after all! Weird! The left boot is smaller than the right and my left big toe is constantly rubbing up against the front of the boot. With in one week the stitching on the inside of the left boot above the rubber sole (about 1/4" long) unraveled. Zappo's A+ Keens C-.

These are great boots, my husband loves them and he is not usually a boot guy. Though slip on would be better for him than laces. Buy a size or two bigger than dress shoes.

So far, so good. Boots are very comfortable, easy to slip on and off, and considering they're boots, they don't look too clunky. I'm normally a North Face kind of guy when it comes to all things winter, but this set of boots beat out both pairs of North Face pull-on type boots I ordered along with it. Definitely would recommend!
