Great shoes!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Geonut from Windsor, CA on Tuesday, May 25, 2010
At first I was disappointed. I have both the Keen H2 and Venice in size 7 1/2 and a 7. My feet are slightly under a 7 but I have a medium to wide foot. Prior to ordering I tried size 7 1/2 on in the Targhee II at a local store and they fit wonderfully so that's what I ordered.

When I received them the left fit great! The right felt way too small. I measured to see if maybe the size was mismarked. Nope. So I removed the insole and replaced it with another I had around the house. Whew! I love the shoes. They are very comfortable now that I replaced the right insole.

I've only worn them just under 5 miles on day hikes and around town but they have worked very well so far. Stepped in a rain puddle today and the feet stayed dry.

I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because I think Keen needs to work a little harder on quality control. The pair I tried on felt true to a size 7 1/2, but was a different color. The ones I received are more like size 7. With the right shoe feeling very tight at the ball of my foot. I like the arches in Keen shoes unlike other major brands where a better insole is needed.
