    Keen Gypsum WP Mid Hiking Boots - Men'sis rated4.3404out of5by47.
    Rated4out of5byfromGood, but not GreatI bought these two years ago and have put over 300 miles on them. After that much, the clear rubber arch support has begun to peel as well as most parts of the sole creating a water issue. Overall, these are super comfy and great as starter boots

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat boot. Buy it. Heck, buy 2.A little about my dynamics: 6'3, 240+ pounds, avid backpacker/outdoorsman. I tend to carry a 50 pound pack, and I don't pay much attention to style. But comfort is a must. I also tend to kill shoes. I kill most things I wear just due to my size and how much I do things. Usually I wear running shoes because they have the wide sizes in 14EE that I demand for my shoe sizes. This boot is my absolute favorite though. Yes, its a 14 and has an orthotic (orange superfeet insert) and it was a squeaker at first as I first got it worn in, but now it doesn't. I've had it about a 2 years and it's perfect. Love. It. To. Death. These boots have been in water up to the very tops of the shoes and never got wet inside. I noticed the tops of my socks wet and maybe it was just spray, but nothing got inside. I've had numerous other boots and I can't say the same about them. Me...I've already gone and bought a second pair of these for when these die....if they die. Seriously. The shoe laces are strong. You'd think this is a minor issue but I bring it up because I've done heavy construction, brush work, yard work, some serious hikes on horrible rock....and laces sometimes get loose, get caught and snap. These don't get loose or get caught. Something about the weave. These boots have awesome soles that don't slip. Believe me...I've done some stupid moves in these...and they've got great grip. Else I probably wouldn't be here. But anyways. I did the boy scout thing, got my Eagle, been around the block and the mountain. I've never been much of a fan of boots....they always are tight, hot, uncomfortable after 20 miles, and you're looking forward to taking them off so you can slip on a pair of those simple hand made (I make my own) leather mocs you carry for around camp. Honestly, these are comfy. I'd wear these to work if they let me, and everywhere else. They're that comfortable. They're also tough, nothing seems to scar them, slightest damp and I'll brush a little No-Sno on and they're good as new. Kinda wish I could re-sole these...but its cool...I have plenty of tread to go AND a new pair all ready to go...just in case these Gypsum get discontinued in the next 3 years. Believe me....just try them on. It just might make a believer out of you too. Joe PS: yes, these ARE made in China. Normally that would kill it for me since I normally only buy American for quality. But just this once...Keen got it right. These boots are amazing. PPS: regarding recommending these to friends, I already have. Lots of happy new boy scouts have these thanks to me. :)

    Rated4out of5byfromExactly what I was looking forNeeded new boots for light hiking and urban excursions in the slush and snow. Very light weight, didn't need to break in and they kept my feet dry. Excellent overall comfort with really good padding around the ankle. Good for people with wide feet. I use orthotic inserts and the boot accommodates them well. Good looking and seem to be well built. Only thing that I can't speak to is the long term durability. Would definitely recommend!

    Rated5out of5byfromHappy CamperAfter buying them I expected a "break in" period, with some soreness/blisters. That did not occur. On my first day I took them for an easy 4 mile walk. Then I hiked areas around the Red Rocks in AZ for a 3-day weekend. I put over 30 miles on these and they were great. Good support when I needed it (keeping from rolling over and injuring ankle). I have only had them for a few weeks, so I can't comment re the durability.

    Rated4out of5byfromSatisfied OverallI have a bit of difficulty finding boots to fit my wide feet. My feet are 12.5 EEEE so I normally wear 13 EEEE (or extra wide). These boots run pretty small and I had to go up to size 14. The fit isn't perfect for me but it is pretty good. That's not the shoe's fault. I have sasquatch feet and I often have trouble finding shoes that fit me well. These boots are not "winter boots" but I did use them for walking in the snow, dog sledding, snow tubing, things like that. I applied Sno-Seal to them before using them even though they are waterproof and that stuff worked great. They are not insulated but they did keep my feet warm enough during walking and other vigorous activities. The more sedentary activities like dog sledding (your feet just dredge through the snow), and snow tubing caused my feet to get a bit cold but the boots got me through it. I expect them to work very well in my regular hiking and off-roading activities. They tie easily and the laces don't slip. I like the finger loop on the top of the toungue and the even larger loop on the back. The construction seems very nice and sturdy and if they fit me better I would definitly give them five stars. I can't comment on wearing them in deeper water yet. I've only worn them in snow and slush and some light rain.

    Rated5out of5byfromMost Comfortable Boot!!This boot was one of the easiest boots I have ever put on and they were comfortable immediately. The wide toe box up fron made it extra nice and kept my toes from being squished. Overall a great boot. I will be walking the Camino De Santiago this year with my wife and bought these boots again so I would be ready for my 500 mile hike!

    Rated3out of5byfromNothing GreatThis is my second pair of Keen boots. The first were outstanding in every way. Wore them immediately without a break-in period. Unfortunately, one of the upper tabs broke so I needed to replace the boots. These were the closest I could get to my original boots and they are less expensive. However, the fit is not there nor is the comfort. These boot walk "hard" . I have not yet tried them on a longer hike but am concerned that the hardness will produce a recognizable discomfort. I notice when I am wearing these boots while I never did with the previous pair.
