    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot Rave about Them Enough! I bought a pair of boot before these and ended up returning them and buying these. I love these boots and cannot wait for my next trip so I can get my feet into them. They are comfortable and waterproof! I walked through a couple small creeks without my feet getting any bit wet. The outside became dry only after a short time. I have weak ankles and was looking for a pair of boots that would help support my ankle and these are the perfect boots to do that for me. The only con I have regarding these shoes would be the lacing. Although I guess I could say they are tough, I am not sure if I like them or not because everytime I go on a trip I have to be careful or I will get blisters on my fingers from tying my boots.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfort trumps quality I switched to the Gypsum from the Targhee Mid because the Targhee wore too quickly and started leaking in less than a year. I was hoping that the Gypsum would be more durable, but the sole in particular did not wear well. Also, the Gympsum doesn't have the Secure-fit lace capture system of the Targhee, just the metal hooks, so the lacing slipped, and tore the shoes laces. Bottom line for me though, Keen is the most comfortable boot out there, and I'm going to buy another pair even though I don't think it's a high-quality boot.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sore Feet I purchased this boot to hike in Sierra on uneven and rocky terrain. It has great stability but I could feel every rock under my foot. At the end of even short hikes my feet hurt. I tried several types of insoles...nothing worked. It is a great fitting boot but for me is good only for lofty forest hikes. It really needs a firmer sole so you don't feel the rocks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from STURDY I intentionally bought these for my long walking commutes to both jobs and for the Fall, Winter, Spring seasons when I can't wear my hiking shoes. The great things about the boots are the waterproof nature, the attached tongue (nothing is going to get inside your boot), sturdy construction, FAST lacing (just loop it around the metal hook and tie), and they keep my feet warm. What I'm working around now is the break-in time: the stiffness in the ankle area and sole are probably because these are meant for serious mountain climbing and hiking. I've been walking around the house (instead of slippers) to get them broken in enough so that can start using them when the weather is bad in a few weeks. The shipping was as expected and I was in no hurry (I ordered early). The shipping material was minimal and I like that the box is 100% recycled (it's now my miniature pinscher's toy box for all her little stuffed toys). There was no damage to the boots. I bought these after speaking with customer service on the sizing. They are ½ smaller than what I normally wear, so instead of ordering a size 7, I went up to 7.5 and with my midweight toe socks, these fit perfectly. My pair are the Gargoyle/Tawny Olive (ON SALE), but I really don't know what those shades are. For anyone like me who doesn't know Gargoyle or Tawny Olive, the boot colors are Gray and Light Blue. The colors won't look bad at all once they get grime on them from hiking. Great boot, I'm anxious to tromp about outside in slush and grime to really test them. PS: I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and my healing now is at about 80% so my low score on the arches is only because of my foot condition. For anyone without any foot issues, the arches are fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable Purchased this item a month before our hiking trip. I never got the chance to break them in (totally forgot to) but I went ahead and wore it on a 14 mile hike at Big Bend, TX. All I can say is that these shoes are fantastic, I never got blisters, no redness, no sore areas around my feet\toes. I did started feeling a little bit of pain around the high top of the shoe but that was because I didn't tie my shoes tight enough when going down the mountain. We didn't get any rain so I really cannot comment on that part, but the trails were extremely rocky and rugged and never felt any of the rocks at all. These are just perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keen Gypsum Hiking Boots Rock! I am a weekend hiker and have been thrilled with these boots right out of the box. I have high arches, wide feet and ankle issues. These boots are more comfortable than my running shoes, and they are machine washable! I will be buying another pair soon as I would like to have one pair strictly for hiking and another pair for more regular use. You need to try this boot on. I had to purchase 1/2 size larger than normal but it has been a perfect fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from keen Gypsum MID hiking boots Used these for a three day hiking trip in the Kootenays. Didn't have a chance to break them in before but had no problems at all with blisters. They are flexible enough to be comfortable yet the mid version (higher up the ankle) was firm enough to stop lateral ankle movements while still being comfortable on steep ascents. (Many boots I tried on would have good support but would cut into the front of my ankle on a steep ascent). Didn't try in super wet conditions, so I can't comment on waterproofness.
