i just got these 3 weeks ago and the seam on the outside left toe on left boot is already coming undone.this is my second attempt to like these boots and i still have faith but i need to exchange these for a better built pair.
Had an issue with my current boots and Keen stood behind their product 100%. they replaced the boots easily with no hassle. received the new boots and out of the box I put them on an felt like I could wear them all day with no problem. I did in fact wear them a hole day at work and never felt like they were new boots.
I have gone through 4 pairs of these boots in the last 18 months. The first 2 pairs had the soles come off within the 1 year warranty period. The third pair had the same problem, but my boot shop said the warranty period applies from the date of purchase of the 1st pair, so no replacement. I tried a dozen other boots on and came back to these for the fit and comfort, hoping I'd have better luck. I'm 3 months in with this 4th pair and this time the leather is ripping away from the rubber just behind the toe cap. I wear these 8 hours a day doing light carpentry. I haven't worn these boots out, they've just fallen apart, one pair after the next, under moderate use, over a very short period of time.
I ordered Pittsburgh's and Braddock soft toe at the same time. Both are 9EE. Braddocks fit perfectly, Pittsburghs were small. That's the "not so good", the good is, Keen's quality is better than some older Keen's I own (and wore out after years of use). I will be ordering another pair of Pittsburghs in 9.5EE.
Out of the box comfortable, good arch support, I stand on or climb ladders every day and walk in water often, my feet feel good and dry at the end of the day. The tongue does not stay in its place it will bunch up, however that is not a big problem. I have had these for one week.
I thought I was getting a premiere pair of footwear when I bought these. Little did I know I was in for three weeks of the absolute worst foot pain I've had in my life. I bought these to replace some Merrell Moab hiking boots and I am sorely unimpressed with the comfort level offered. I work in a convenience store constantly walking and these boots about killed me. DO NOT BUY
I previously had a pair of Keens that I totally wore out. I was very impressed with those boots so I purchased another pair this time heavier duty. After 3 months the seam at the sole split letting in water and debris like I was wearing a sandal. Could no longer wear them because of this. Was unable to return or exchange. Last pair I will purchase because of this experience.
I am a landscaper and I spend almost 75 percent of my time operating equipment, after 7 or 8 months they stopped being waterproof, even with the morning breeze my boots get wet, the interior comes off, and the sole of the left boot makes noise when I take a step, these are the most expensive boots I have bought and the least efficient. I don’t recommend this boots.
The boots seem to be very made well, but I found them to be very stiff and uncomfortable. The reviews I saw said the were really comfortable right out of the box...I have to disagree. Keen was great, made the return process easy...I am gonna try a different keen line.
I have purchased several pairs of these boots. Love everyone. I have had a few that had some minor issues. And keen with there warranty replaced them. They are awesome. I will never buy a different boot. I work for the phone company and really put the boots to the test. Been great so far.
Only worn once so far seem comfortable kind of intetested to see if they hlod up better then the mt vernon steel t oi ed they replaced i switched to Timberland pro for work boots i wasn't impressed with the performance of the keens. Also i didn't recieve the free socks with my Pittsburgh shoes.
Most waterproof and comfortable work boots ever owned. But after only 3 months noticeable excessive wear to the tread and after 4 months could not even wear anymore. Because of excessive deterioration and cracking to the bottoms they were no longer waterproof. But were still comfortable. Had higher expectations for $180 cost and good reviews from word of mouth about KEEN brand
I waited a while to wear the boat and really get a good feel for it. i got the wide and it has good toe room. the boot is really comfy and can wear it all day with only one issue........... the tongue ! while it is soft and padded it will not stay laced in at the top, this is annoying. You have to crank down the laces to keep it in. so thats my only complaint. i do like them and will wear them till they fall apart ..... witch i think will be a bit - made very sturdy
I have owned several pair of the Targhee II boot in "EE" width. The fit was good although I needed a taller boot with more overall support. I purchased the Pittsburgh 6" in the same size EE. The Pittsburgh seemed to be much narrower. So much so, that I could not wear them. I was under the impression that sizing was standardized. I guess not. Other than the width issue, the Pittsburgh is a sturdy well-made boot.
I have had a very hard time finding a boot that is comfortable with bad arthritis in my feet. I have to wear an orthotic ( arch support ) witch takes up room but these boots accommodate them exceptionally well and are very comfortable right out of the box. I have purchased other styles as these boots are a pleasure to wear.
I've bought over 7 pairs of these boots. Super comfortable and help keep my lower back supported. They hold up well to the heavy construction and demolition work that I do. Soles do get torn up over time.
The price of this show keeps going up, first pair I purchased cost $135 at my local shoe store.
Overall construction of boot is great: sole, uppers, hardware, grommets all good materials and built well. Interior of boot: a little less care was spent here, Fill between outer and inner feels cheap.
Footbed: my largest disappointment, If an impression was made for the foot bed I would guess they used a swollen diabetics foot. Major lack of arch support and feel like a 29 dollar pair of boots. Again everything is built very well, Left to assume the design was focused on appearance. My 2nd pair of Keens will most likely be going back to Zamberlin's
These are the best boots I've ever had. I had to order a half size bigger than normal so they must fit a little smaller than other keens. I was able top determine this at a local store. I was apprehensive ordering online, it was my first time doing so. I was worried they wouldn't fit right or one might feel weird since I couldn't try them on. Then I would have the hassle of returning. My fears were abolished as soon as I put them on. Great pair, speedy delivery!
This was my first time purchasing a Keen boot. Drawn to this brand and model by reports of its comfort, I was very pleased with how they performed in this regard. These shoes are extremely comfortable, cushion and cradle your feet, and have never made my feet sore in the 11 months of daily wear.
That being said, 11 months after purchase, they are unwearable. The toe cap has pulled away from the leather shoe body on one foot, and a huge hole has developed in the tread of the other. I am waiting to find out whether either of these problems falls under Keen's warranty.
An additional note- the tread had excellent traction initially. However, it is also very soft and wore down quickly. One afternoon on a roof provided very good grip, but shredded key parts of the tread and caused a lot of wear in just a few hours.
To summarize, I would purchase Keen again, but probably would not buy this model. For a boot that wears out this quickly, I am looking for a lower price point. At this price point or even a little higher, I would be interested in a boot that provides this high level of comfort but is much more durable.
This was my second pair of Pittsburgh boots. The first pair I had wore the soles off the first pair in a year and a couple months. That is what I expect in a pair of boots. The second pair after 6 months the rubber on the side of the boot that goes down to the sole near the ball of the foot cracked. This allowed the leather to let loose from the flexing of the boot I have bought a pair of of Durand II since Time will tell.
These boots are ok. The tongue does not tuck in well for me. Maybe the boots need a third eyelet for the laces like some of your other boots have. Not completely satisfied do to the overall fit. Had I tried them on in a store this would have been more apparent. Went on a five mile hike and overall they were comfortable. So I will look for a different Keen next time.
I have had my boots going on 4.5 years and i Love them. They wear great. At around the 3 year point I started to have problems. Upon inspection I found the heal had worn a little and I had to put in a heal insert in. In December of 2020 I will have them for 5 years and I am going to order another pair. I feel they are the best boot that Keen makes.
My husband loves these Keen boots for work. Since our local store didn't show them on their website as available, I looked up your website and search the product number and viola, there they were. It was easy to order had the right size and was shipped and received in a timely manner. Thank you for making him happy.
