Best purchase I ever made

Verified Buyer Reviewed by beachNmountainGirl from Myrtle Beach, SC on Wednesday, September 9, 2009
Let me first say that I have done many, many backpacking, hiking and outdoor adventure trips -- and every single trip, I've ended up with blisters within 2 miles of beginning my trips. Most of the hikes I do are 20+ miles. I had given up on shoes, thinking that there would never be a hiking shoe that would work for my strangely shaped feet. Then I bought these Keens. Tried them out on a strenuous 2-day trip with a rocky 3,100 foot climb that included creek crossings, etc. The shoes did amazing. Almost zero break-in time (I got them about 4 days before the trip and just wore them around the house) and genuinely comfortable, even for my feet. The best part -- NO BLISTERS!!! Buy them. You will not regret it. Just make sure you buy a full size larger than your regular every day shoes. You want a half size larger just because they're hiking shoes and a half size larger because these run small.
