1st hike
Bought these yesterday from local store. Wore them on a very strenuous hike today with no break in time, and my feet feel great. For all the comments talking about working in these, they are not a work boot so they shouldn’t function as one, but what they were designed for they are awesome and kept out all the water. If they last me 6 months it’s worth the price.

Great boot. This is my second pair. Glad to see the all black option. I am able to wear these at work with my uniform. Have worked several 8 hours traffic control details standing in these. Feet felt great.

Easily the worst set of hiking shoes I've ever bought
Easily the worst hiking shoes I've ever bought, major waste of $150. Avoid at all costs unless you want pain shooting up your feet and legs.

I wear steel-toed Keens for work and usually have a pair of Keen hikers for personal use. Most of those have good arch support and the wide toebox that I like.

The footbed is very poorly designed. It's actually higher on the outside than on the inside under your arch, so it tilts your feet inwards and all your weight rests on your midsole, rather than being spread out across the foot. I have no idea how or why they did that, as it's the opposite of every other shoe design. It almost feels like the shoe designers mixed up left and right at some point.

I tried wearing them for over a month, hoping they would break in, which was a foolish mistake on my part. It's better with some proper insoles, but the bad design extends to the footbed, so there's not too much you can do.

Hard to believe this is the same Keen that makes other lines of high-quality with good orthopedics. A very low quality product. After reading other reviews here, not very optimistic these will last long either.

My newest Keen’s
As usual Keen has made another great shoe. I bought these for work at the fire department and they are everything I wanted, waterproof, easy to clean, and comfortable.

Destroyed after a few months
Very comfortable. But unfortunately, the shoes tears down between the sole and the inner front part of the boot, after a few months of light hiking. Keen gave us a good after sale warranty service: they credited the value of the shoes. I do not recommend them.

4th pair couldnt be better
This is my 4th pair of Targhee mid cuts. This 6 inch Targhee fits the bill for me just fine.I hope you guys never tinker with the formula for this boot too much. I realize there's always that temptation to make some minor cosmetic changes to keep up with current trends out there,thats fine.Just dont mess with the guts. This boot is near perfect.The inside foot liner has great forefoot cushioning and also heel protection.The waterproof has been a blessing time and time again.Quick lacing with that final open hook at the top that really makes it so quick for that" put em on and get out the door" move .The outer sole is as tough as it gets,they really withstand the daily grind of any surface.Love this boot ,the perfect fit and style for my lifestyle.

Poor Durability
Boot fits well and is very comfortable. Love the materials and the lightweight. I’ve had them for 18 months. I wear them about 3-4 times a week in wet weather and less when dry. I have only done a couple demanding hikes and the tread is coming unglued from the sole. Not just an isolated location but most of the tread on both boots. Second pair of Keens in a row with durability issues. I have been a Keen-only boot wearer - Disappointed! Looking at other boot makers for my next pair.

So far so good
Very comfortable, very reactive and light to wear. The materials breath and my feet aren't hot with an all day wear. the shoes look good in jeans, or shorts or pretty much anything you wear
