Keen Boots hail from the USA where founders, Rory Fuerst and Martin Keen created the Newport sandal because of outdoors enthusiasts continually complaining about getting their toes stubbed when wearing sandals. The Keen sandal came with a nice big toe guard.  The company soon grew to 1000 stores and is now all over Europe, Australasia and in Central America. 

One of the boots I think is great is the Keen Targhee II Mid Hiking boot (pictured) and you can read all about that in our previous post Keen Targhee ii Review.

Another boot that I like is the Keen Voyageur Mid-Hiking Boot. They've taken the waterproof barrier off this one and given it mesh lining instead to allow for your feet to breathe on those sweltering days hiking up the canyons (it still keeps the water out).

There is a Keen Women Voyageur version of the same boot as well

If being fully waterproof is your actual top requirement then  there's the Keen Summit Waterproof Winter boot.  We've just had a major dumping of snow where I live (unusual for our part of the world especially in an urban area) and these boots are ideal-because they have a resilient rubber outsole which reacts to the cold  by hardening for a tough grip on packed snow.

The Keen boots folks are smart-they've designed 450-gram KEEN.WARM insulation into the toe area since they realized the toes are the first area to get cold. The remaining upper is kept warm with 350-gram KEEN.WARM insulation. Put that together with the breathable waterproof membrane, it could make this the ultimate winter boot.

Then if you have to take the boots off and rest those weary feet in the evenings by the camp fire you don't need to go and stub your toes like those outdoors folks who first inspired Keen.  You can slip on the Newport sandal that you got at the last Keens boots sale and stomp around the campsite with abandon!

Those are my best hiking boots choices. Let me know what your favorites are.

All in all Endless.com will give you great prices on these boots-keep checking back to see what deals and Keen boots discounts they have.

Keen Targhee ii

Why the Keen Targhee ii Mid Hiking Boots are Great
We start with the Keen Targhee II hiking boot. This boot is loaded with features that will help you over any terrain, such as the New Zealand Southern Alps, where my son recently completed a strenuous hike as part of the latest project for his Outdoor Education studies.

The Keen Targhee ii Mid Waterproof Hiking Boots for men (and women)-we will cover the Keen
Keen Targhee Mens Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot
Targhee ii women boots in a sec-are equipped with the KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane to keep feet dry and comfortable even in the most damp, slushy wilderness terrain such as the Southern Alps in winter. They have a leather upper and a rubber sole with a 4mm lugs to give you great traction on the slipperiest outcrops.

The mid-section of the Keen Targhee II boot is engineered from EVA material with a nylon support shank to provide you with the needed stability on uneven surfaces. The height of the cup is middle height which also improves the support to your ankles if hiking up mountain passes like my son and his buddies have recently done.

These Keen boots have an interesting lacing system and most commentators like the lacing lock at the top of the ankle. If one's laces should loosen, the boot still fits snugly.

Keen Women Targhee
The Keen Targhee ii women boots share most of the characteristics of the men's boots and seem to attract even more positive comments than the men's.

The boots are definitely geared towards hiking, especially if walking through muddy or damp areas. The Keen waterproof membrane in these shoes has been found by users and professional testers to do its job-that is,keep any kind of moisture off of your feet, which is obviously really handy when the weather goes pear-shaped and you get stuck out in the "wop wops" as they say in Kiwi-land(boondocks,bush). Many users find the toe area of both the boots and the Keen Womens Targhee ii shoe plenty roomy enough. One person hires to test the boots apparently stated “They almost feel a bit too comfortable to be hiking boots,” which is another kudo for these Keen Womens Targhee ii boots.

Keen Targhee II Cons

Because of the waterproof qualities of the boot it can breathe poorly and get a bit too hot for the feet if used excessively or on a long hike.

The lugs are
