Perfect timing for the purchase of a perfect boot
I was torn between purchasing these boots and a sorel boot, and ultimately I opted for these because I was concerned about bulkiness with the sorel boot I was looking at. I was also concerned about how well the sorel boot would do in snow shoeing and sledding. The day before my boots arrived I sprained my ankle, so I was extra concerned about support. But I had no need to worry. The keen's fit like a glove, are very supportive, and are both light and warm. It started snowing in Boston (which it had yet to do this year# two days later, and I've worn my boots to work every day. I've also worn them tromping about to play in the snow, and they're perfect. So comfortable and so supportive even with my sprained ankle, that I've even kept them on at home instead of my brace. Last week I went into a store to take a gander at the Sorel's that I was considering, and I'm so glad I opted for the Keens. The Sorel's are much bulkier and heavier. They're still very cute #which is why I was drawn to them in the first place) but so are the Keens.

Great Boot Purchase
I originally bought these boots as a Christmas gift, but loved them so much I bought a pair for myself. These boots have great traction for the snow, comfortable fit, and a zipper down the side to make them easier to put on. I also love that these boots don't have laces to come untied or get wet in the snow like so many other boots. I would take the recommendation of other reviews and order a 1/2 size larger. I normally wear an 8.5 and ordered a size 9. Perfect fit considering you will be wearing warmer winter socks. Once again, another great product from Keen!!

I've been wearing Keen's for a few years now and they're really the only shoes I buy. I've got problems w/ my ankles and haven't found another brand that competes w/ their comfort. I usually order a half size up in Keen so I did the same when ordering these boots for my wife. I had read several reviews on these boots and that seemed to be the consensus. My wife disagreed. She loved the boots but is returning them for her usual size. She gave a great review of the boots as far as comfort, style etc. went, only complaint was that I should have gotten her actual size instead of ordering a half size up which is usually required when buying keens. Altrec is wonderful about returns so no worries. Correct size on the way.

Very comfortable & warm
These boots are wonderful. I ordered a half size up and they fit perfect. They keep your feet toasty and warm. The tread is chunky--no unwanted slippage! The black is a great color and can be worn underneath jeans and no one knows they are snow boots. Great looking and feeling boot!

Bought yet another pair of keens - this time for winter. They are perfect as per usual true to fit and description. They are warm and stylish. Altrec was prompt and a pleasure to deal with again- thanks so much!
