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
soft and grip well on rocky trails but can wear down pretty quickly if you use them on concrete surfaces. The larger lugs don't seem to bite too well on surfaces like ice.

Many comment on the odd sizing. You may find the boots are 1/2 a size down from what you need when you select your usual size-so try them out for size. (You can always replace if ordering from a reputable online dealer).

Keen Targhee II Pluses and Where to Buy Keen Targhee II online

As you have read, there are many great plus factors and positive comments about these boots. This is an example of a positive review from "Oak" from Montana:

"I read a lot of reviews and talked to a lot of people and, based on that chose to purchase these boots. All I can say all the positive reviews were right. I really like these boots. Even after I worked in my backyard or completing my inaugural hike up to the summit of Mt. Helena (no walk in the park)I felt like I was walking on cushions. For now I'm sold on Keen and will buy again. Endless was great too. Ordered on a Saturday and received my order on Monday! Don't know how that worked but it was great. I do recommend Keen Boots AND Endless.com to anyone". (Review paraphrased for space and originality)
