Contrary to what Keen says about this shoe for me it has taken several months to get that broken in feeling but once you get there the Briggs II are extremely comfortable. They have been my everyday working shoes for several months and I have had no problems with durability or comfort. The leather on the shoe feels thicker than my old Austins and the arch support is fantastic. I have used these in shoes in all types of weather to include snow and rain and have never gotten wet or lost traction. The Briggs II so far are the second most comfortable shoe I have owned next to my Targhee II, they are a extremely durable all weather daily use shoes with extreme comfort after they are broken in. Highly recommended!

Keen Briggs II "Great Walking Shoe'
I purchased these shoes for vacation. I wore them around town before vacation, and I have to tell you they were absolutely the most comfortable. We did a lot of walking on vacation, and I was amazed that my toe never bothered me once. I highly recommend these shoes for all day walking. They wear very well. I feel it was a good investment, and good value.

I purchased this as a gift for someone who has flat feet. He is able to fit his orthotics into these shoes and they are super comfortable for him! He said he has never been able to find a confortable pair or "dress" shoes like these! Plus Altrec.com matched my price and made it easy to shop with them!! Thank you!!

Love these shoes!
My husband does not like buying his shoes online but I assured him he can expect the same quality and fit from buying them from Altrec. I was right. I ordered these shoes a few days ago and we got them yesterday despite our crazy New England weather. The color was consistent with what you see online. These shoes fit my husband perfectly...he swears by the comfort, durabililty, and quality of these shoes. He works in a very busy ER south of Boston and is on his feet his entire shift and then some. They are true to size but keep in mind you do have to break them in a little.

Heard complaints about color of slate black shoe leather (greenish). I purchased slate black, and while not remotely black, they are consistently a light brown. They are not two tone as other slate black versions I have seen in stores have been. I am very happy with the color, and the image from Alltec's web site is exactly what the shoes look like. There may be a newer version of slate black that is monotone and not greenish. Took a high content water proofing spray (15% silicon) without any change in color or texture. Very Impressive! Size is great. I have worn 11 in previous Keen shoes. Purchased 11.5 and seems perfect. Hard to say of this model runs small. We will see how durability is. Have only had 3 weeks.
