I have bee a long time Danner Explorer boot devotee. I will never spend that kind of money again. The Keen boot is much lighter and the fit is much better that the Explorer at almost one third the cost. The Keen wide toe box is the real selling pint as I have a EE width foot so they are comfortable ... Read More

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Montana Fly Fisher from Montana on Sunday, August 10, 2014
    I bought these boots in the Winter and wore them to my place in Montana. I wore them every day, for 10 days. They were great , even in the freezing weather. I also used these boots for my Summer vacation to Montana and I used them a lot for fly fishing. They worked well on the wet rocks and for climbing up and down steep banks. I walked in to river up to my ankles and my feet stayed dry. I did a few hikes in the boots which required climbing through snow and mud. My ankles where sore because I am not used to wearing high top shoes/boots. These boots performed very well every time I used them and I would recommend them.

    Exceptional quality and comfort from day one. I have a wider foot base which Keen accepts, but they also stay secure for an all day excursion. I have had Keen shoes before and I always wear out the sole before any other part of the shoe.

    These boots seem to be of high quality leather. I ordered these for the hubby and he has not worn them for extended periods so can't comment on durability. The sizing is right on. He normally wears an 8 in Keens, I ordered and 8 and they fit great. FYI, I also ordered a pair of Keen sandals in his usual 8 but they were a full size too small.

    I chose these keens b/c of the great reviews and my own personal experience with Keen shoes and sandals. I even tried 2 pairs of these boots - the 1st I ordered 1/2 size larger per the reviews (10 1/2 - same as my running shoes) and tried them out. They were a teensy bit large, but nothing too out of the ordinary. Great construction, etc. I broke them in a little around the house wearing good socks and easy walks, etc, but on the 1st 6 mile hike on some actual elevation and striding, they gave me quarter-sized blisters on both heels. I chalked this up to the slightly large and exchanged for a 10. Better fit, still great boots. Same result - big blisters on both heels.
    THESE BOOTS HAVE SEAMS RUNNING UP THE VERY CENTER LINE OF THE HEEL. WHAT KIND OF DESIGN IS THAT? NO SMOOTH CONSTRUCTION!!!!!!
    No wonder my skin was being worn off.
    I see I'm in the minority here with these boots, and that happens - it was the 1st time for me ever.
    Good luck - if they fit and don't nuke your heel bones, congrats they are really good boots.
    But my second pair was returned as well, and I'm currently in a pair of Asolos w/o seams on the contact points. Good luck.

    With only a short break in period, these boots have become my favorite hiking footwear. After ordering my first pair, I liked them so much I purchased an additional pair to have for back-up. I hike approximately 30 miles a week, and I also wear these boots at work. They hold up very well, and give my bad ankles and repaired achilles tendon more than enough support. I do not even have to wear my ankle braces!
    They run a half size small, so order a half size larger that you normally wear.
    With my Sierra Trading Post discount, I was able to save $100.00 per pair..Great Boot at a Great Price..Thanks STP!

    • Answer I normally wear Vasque boots and shoes, Red wing work boots, and have also had Asolo trail runners. I am an 8.5 regular in these and I wear 8.5 regular in the Keen Erickson's. I think they run true to size.

  • Question “How stiff is the sole of the boot? Are they good for long distance backpacking hikes?”
    Asked on 9/22/2012 12:00:00 AM by azhiker from Unknown
    • Answer Depends on what environmental conditions you hike in. I have not backpacked in mine yet, but I wear them about with a camelback day pack. These are designed for long distance backpacking. I would wear mine on any trip that I take into the Rockies. I carry a 45-50# pack depending on length of trip and wouldn't hesitate to wear these on my 3 season trips. I would describe these as moderately stiff, but as the keen description says - they are rugged, reliable, waterproof, comfortable, flexible and stable at the same time. These are a great boot!!! You will like them too. Oh and I bought YakTrax Pros for mine for those times when the conditions are real hard packed snow or icy and they work great under those conditions too. I don't do big ice with cleats/spikes, and would recommend a molded frame boot for that type trip. My feet are always warm, dry and comfortable when I get done. Go Keen... Hope this helps...
