Very well made and comfortable boot. It has a nice wide toe box and good treads and still looks good. Good fit.

Great looking comfortable boot. They look good with jeans or casual pants. I was surprised how comfortable they were right out of the box.

The most comfortable shoe my husband has ever worn. I just ordered him another pair in case they stop making them at some point in the future.

This boot is really nice, but the height of the ankle is a bit off for me - gave me a blister right away on the back of my ankle, and if I don't wear the right socks, it's still a bit uncomfortable. Mostly it's fine, and they look great.

I really like Keen, but this boot felt a little smaller in length to my other pairs of Keen. Still kept them due to being just what I wanted. Not so visible in the picture is the variance in black on the boot. The boot part is not as black as the sole. I would also say it is not leather, more of a suede, than leather. I will not be putting boot polish on this part! It actually adds to the beauty of the boot, but I was not expecting this. Perhaps I read the description wrong? Overall, a great, sturdy, fashionable boot I don't mind paying a lot for as Keens last forever.

These shoes are beautiful, soft, and comfortable right out of the box. The huge Keen toe box is fantastic for my wide, spade-shaped feet. My one complaint is that the sole of the forefoot is too thin. This looks like a hiking boot, but you'd be crazy to walk 10 miles over rocky ground with a sole this thin, especially carrying weight. Personally I also wish the heel were not so high but my feet can't take any heel at all, so most people will not be bothered by this. I'm convinced that heels (higher than the rest of the sole) are the main cause of plantar fasciitis. I wore Keens for a decade, and loved them, but eventually had to stop due to plantar fasciitis, which disappeared immediately when I switched to MBTs (now sadly out of business). I have hopes that the minimalist shoe revolution will eventually come to hiking boots too - but so far only GoLite BareTech seems to have done that, and only in one or two styles, and not with the width sizing that matters so much to me.

This was the second pair of Keens that I tried. The 1st pair looked too much like industrial/restaurant style for my liking, Barkleys I like the look of until I put them on. Toe box is wider than the previous pair of Keens I tried as well.

Not happy. At first boot felt large for size, does not get snug with laces. Also after 2 weeks of use the rope laces tore and disintegrated. Poor lace quality and sizing not good. I would not recommend this boot.
