These are great boots. The fit is exactly what I would expect from Keen products. Appreciate the roomy toe box and the arch support. I purchased the Keen boot because I was looking for greater weather protection and warmth than I get with my regular Keen shoes, and discovered the ankle support of the boot gives greater stability on uneven terrain. I think the waterproof feature will be useful on early spring hikes. I am generally a size 9 and the fit is just right. I highly recommend them to other hikers.

Most comfortable hiking boot I have ever had
Wow! Comfortable from the get go, wide toe box, good arch and ankle support, perfect fit. I feel like I could hike Mt. Everest -- ok, get real, how about Mt. Rainier. What's not to like?!

These are my second pair of these boots. They are comfortable out of the box from the first hike on. Great arch and shoe support. I find these so comfortable I wear them as walking shoes! Excellent service and shipping. When these wear out, I'll buy another pair.

Bought these for my college age daughter for her birthday. She went to a local store to test fit another brand of boots, but she saw the Keen boots and really liked the way they looked and felt. She normally wears a size 9 but bought size 9.5 which is perfect with her thick hiking socks. She really liked the way the the rubber came up over the tip of the toe for more protection. Altrec had more color choices and a better price than the local store. Love the boots!

Love these boots! I've owned several brands and find these to be the most comfortable. Material isn't stiff like some brands and my feet appreciate the extra room across the toe area. I wear a size 6.5 - 7 in dress shoes but a 7.5 in running shoes. I found the 7 to be a perfect fit in the Keens!
