What customers say about "Key Specs"
KEEN Targhee III Mid Leather Wp-m Hiking Boot
  • During my typical work-day, I do a lot of hiking on multiple types of surfaces doing reforestation habitat restoration, these surfaces include going from pavement to gravel to trails to open meadows.
  • Initially I was concerned because the upper was quite high and stiff - esp with forward flexion in the boot. It gave me blisters and sore spots on the anterior lateral lower legs.
  • They are hot in the summer and are not terribly breathable, but are definitely durable.
  • Very pleased. Fit is great and very comfortable. I wear them everyday for work and on the weekends for hiking.
  • I was delivered a pair of shoes that had one left shoe of the proper size and one right shoe a size too small. NOT COOL!!
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.

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!
