    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boots, not totally waterproof. Not much to say as other reviewers have pretty much covered everything. I ended up returnnig these for two reasons: they're not waterproof and they're too soft. I hike on rocky, rough trails (I'm not a big fan of unchallenging, popular hiking trails). The shank in these boots was just too soft and didn't provide enough support. I could feel the rocks against the bottom of my foot when I stepped over them. They are over the ankle fit however, so ankle support was good. These boots are leather, so they won't dry fast but I'm sure they'd last a while. also, they're quite soft and flexible so blistering and getting a secure fit is no problem. Keendry just doesn't cut it. These boots are VERY water resistant but not waterproof. Look for GTX lined boots if you'll be using them in snow or stream crossings. They're fine for rainy days though, as long as you're not splashing through puddles. Overall, good boots for intermediate/beginner hikers looking for comfy boots with no break in and water resistance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from "I would buy this product again" Well three days before a huge camping and hiking trip in the New Mexico mountains my faithful hiking boots became unfaithful with a cracked sole. So I broke the cardinal rule of hiking and brought new hiking boots on 8 plus mile hikes in the mountains for a week long trip. I was expecting blisters and sore feet after the first day and to my surprise I did not have any blisters. They were very comfortable I have a wide foot 10 1/2 EEE and finding hiking boots to fit is hard at times. These boots felt very natural on my feet. They had exceptional grip doing the Eat Fork River Hike in NM 11,000 plus foot elevation it rained on this hike and there was no slipping or sliding. The only drawback it took an extra day for the boots to dry. They held up to a punishing week of hiking in a variety of conditions. In an alpine forest, desert rocks and rocky peak hikes. They were the 10K hike to Sandia Crest outside of Albuquerque, East Fork River Hike outside of Red River NM, Williams Lake and Wheeler Peak Hike outside of Taos and the Kashe Katuwe hike between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. They will be my new hiking boots....... I'm in love or I should I say my feet are in love...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow-up review Hiked ~40 miles over 6 days in a variety of conditions in UT and AZ: 5 mile snowshoe trip up to 12,000 ft, backpacking in the Zion wilderness, day hikes around other national parks/monuments. These boots were on my feet the whole time. Not one blister/sore/sign of discomfort. Only issue with water was when my gaiters slipped up and dumped some snow inside, and even then I was surprised at how well they handled the moisture. Almost completely dried out by the time we were back to camp. I had read some other reviews about the shoe feeling weak on rough terrain but I didn't experience this at all. I think Keen just won me for life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most 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!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable! I wear these boots as a utility locator, I am walking through varying terrain all day and they are very comfortable the whole time! Unfortunately these boots are only water proof when you are in your truck and it is raining outside, they become saturated daily when I walk through grass. This is a disappointment but not altogether unexpected.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Boot! I tried on a variety of women's boots before moving to the men's. I have wide feet and most women's boots could not provide the width I needed. My right foot always feels pinched in boots so I knew I needed something with a natural width. The first day I bought them I wore them for half a day around the house to get a feel for them and try to break them in prior to the next day's hike. The hike day these felt like an extension of my foot and wore easily. They are light and felt like a heavier running shoe. I had no issues treking over rocks, downed trees, and stepping around on rocks in a stream/river. We completed 4-5 miles in varied inclining and declining terrain. I usually wear a men's 8 but got the 8.5, my feet felt so much more comfortable with the extra half size. I had no issues with my feet moving around in the boot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dale's Feet Loves His Keen Boots!!! Dale's feet here�?�while Dale is blah, blah, blahing about his hiking adventures in this blog imoverthehill, we want to praise his Keen Gypsum Hiking Boots They are the real star of the show. You see, we are large (Size 13 �?? sheesh!) , wide feet that are hard to fit. These Keen boots have a large toe box and are breathable. We have carried Dale over Sierra granite and through shady Redwood forests�?�These Keen boots have performed very well. Believe us, this clumsy guy needs good boots! We don't even want to get started about Dale walking around in his house at night without our Keen boots on! Oy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Boots These are a great set of boots. I used them immediately on a 60 mile trek in the Andes and came out without any blisters. I could never find a boot that fit me just right and when I put these on, it felt like Cinderella fitting into her glass slippers. I have approximately 300+ miles on these and they are going strong, remain supportive, and are extremely comfortable. The wide toe box and hard rubber toe are one of my favorite parts. I do want to note that they are not completely water proof. The leather tends to absorb water and makes the boot feel "wet and cool." I treated my boots with some waterproofing wax. While it darkened the leather, it gave it much better waterproofing. They also run wide with a huge toe box. Slimmer feet may not fit well in the Gypsums.
