Not bad, but...

I really wanted to like these boots -- they were the height I was looking for, lightweight, and with a grippy rugged sole. Sizing was perfect as recommended -- I'm normally a size 8.5, and ordered an 8. Plenty of toe room and fairly comfortable insoles. I wasn't so thrilled with the lacing system (top one or two loops should be metal), and noticed that at the top, the boot barely went around my leg, even though I don't have particularly big/wide calves. Not a chance I could fit my pant legs into the boot.

Still, I probably would have kept them, except for one uncomfortable detail: At the point where the rubber ends and the fabric begins in the heel, the rubber dug into my foot. I tried thinner/thicker socks, bent the rubber a bit, shifted my foot around, all to no avail. Maybe it was a flaw... but with so many other boots to choose from, not worth it. Back to KEEN we go.
