Targhee II Mid Waterproof
About the Product
The trick to transitional hiking is versatility, and this men's trail shoe is a summer-to-fall favorite. Made of mesh and leather, it has a moisture-wicking lining and a stability shank for all-day support.
This waterproof hiking boot keeps your feet dry and lets them breathe, and the aggressive outsole bites into the terrain. It's built for all-day comfort, and the mid-cut height adds ankle support.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
KEEN Oakridge Shoe
  • Definitely a less than durable choice of materials. I have worn them a couple of times a week.
  • Awesome hiking shoes. Love the material and the way it fits my foot.
  • I increased the size by 1/2 a size as my previous Keens seem a little short. Despite this, these shoes are certainly none too big and are noticeably narrower than expected.
  • They have lots of errors where the two sole materials are glued together wrong and things don't line up.
  • The quality of materials is good but not as comfortable as other reviews that I read. I wear them for work everyday.
  • The sole material needs to be softer to grip better. (My opinion)
KEEN Targhee II Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot
  • I think these look great. I love the Copper color and the materials look great.
  • The shoes are built tough. Uppers look really good after 18 months.
  • The fabric, leather, and "other" materials are all well-conceived and well-used. I am hard on boots and prefer few metal and plastic parts that can bend or break.
  • The black rubber sole started to separate from the bottom of both shoes after about six months and by ten months, it was hanging and flapping.
  • First off, I get that their hiking boots and that it's a leather material so anything that touches it is going to scar it up. Unfortunately, the pair I got looks like someone got it, wore it for a bit, and then returned it. It's as simple as that.

What customers say about "Features"
KEEN Oakridge Shoe
  • Comfortable shoe, good quality, and no an obnoxious color pattern. (I think he took a sharpie to that yellow triangle on the toe cap to mute it some.)
  • When I add in my Dr Scholl's air cushions, it's without a doubt the most comfortable shoe experience I have ever had.
  • This shoe is comfortable, roomy, cool-looking, easily broken in, and not high arched or narrow.
  • It's nice to have a little color, but not too much and the Raven/Burnt Ochre is exactly that.
  • This is a very comfortable shoe. However, I'm giving it 3 only stars because the sole has worn out prematurely, in my opinion.
KEEN Targhee II Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot
  • They are a heavier boot than anticipated but in general were still comfortable for daily use.
  • These are my second pair of Keens Targhee... I love them and they feel so very comfortable.
  • I’ve been wearing Keen boots for many years. They are exceptionally comfortable and are the only boots I’ve found with a wide enough toe box to accommodate my broken toe.
  • They are very comfortable, support and grip well. It would be great if they made them last longer.
  • This is the 3rd or 4th pair of Keens I have bought my husband. He raves about their comfort, and he wears them all day at work 10 plus hours a day on his feet! Unfortunately, the last 2 pairs we have purchased have fallen apart within 30 days!
