Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, I have warm feet ! my review is for the KEEN Neve Polar Winter Boots (no longer available, it looks like from the spec's these Durand Polar Winter Boots are the same boot) Very comfortable, much better support for hiking then pac boots, and I finally have warm feet! I wear a 9.5 to 10 (4E feet) it took a size 13 for my feet to fit comfortably (trying pairs at the store) but what made that ok was that the toe box hardly lengthened at all from size 10.5 all the way to 13, it just got wider .. they fit good with heavy socks, no sloppiness with laces wide/loose at toe, and I can use them with thin socks as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from broken eyelet I bought these boots in November around the start of last winter. They were very comfortable and kept my feet dry on during warm wet storm and warm on cold dry storms. The boots saw it all during that winter from 3+feet of fresh snow to 6" of water saturated snow mush. They paired really well with the Smart Wool Expedition Trekking Socks. After using snowboard boots and Sorels I found that having a lighter smaller boot is extremely helpful. Around Mid April right before the Ski Area I worked at was about to close for the season, An upper lace hook broke from its rivet. I wasn't pulling on it that hard at the time an was pretty surprised by it breaking. The pair of boots seemed to be made to a high quality, makes me wonder if it was a defect or if others boots had done the same thing. At $200 they are one of the more expensive winter boots REI has to offer. I had hoped to get several seasons out of them and was pretty disapointed to have to return them. Its almost November again and also time to start looking for a new winter boot. Good Luck to ya.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going strong after a full year Got these boots for Christmas 2015 and have put a fair amount of winter use into them. Mostly trekking through snow fields etc. nothing crazy but certainly more than sitting around the campfire. The boots run a half size small at least they did for me. I find them very comfortable and quite warm and dry. I've been in some pretty cold conditions with them and my toes never got that "holy smokes i'm losing it" feeling just before they go numb. Reasonable sole traction too. Have stacked it a few times when I hit solid ice but that's why they make crampons. On all conditions of snow I've had very good footing. I've used them snowshoeing and they fit nice into my Atlas shoes. Easy in and out and no slipping in the bindings. After one full winter/spring and part way into the second season I don't see any real signs of wear. Typical Keen quality. Color me happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd winter, still holding strong Bought mine last winter, which turned out to be a fantastic investment since we're getting pounded by snow this year. My feet tend to get cold fast (not a wedding reference), but not in these gems. Staying warm and very comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK These were acceptable until an eyelet broke off while I was walking. For the price I expected a better quality boot. How many more will break off is yet to be determined.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like having clouds on my feet These boots fit amazing!! I bought them a half size bigger then I normally do with boots, to allow room for my foot because of the 400 grams of thinsulate and wearing hiking socks. I haven't used them outside yet, because there is no snow. So I don't know how they fare in the elements and with the cold. But I've worn them for many hours around the house, and my feet felt amazing inside, they're a perfect fit. That's why I keep buying Keen boots. They're a little hard to tie, but I guess you get used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm First boots in my life that keep my feet warm. My feet are usually always cold but not in these. Out on the sled for a day, snowblowing/shoveling after a storm, hiking, my feet are always warm but not hot and sweaty.

Questions & Answers

Would this boot be good for snowshoeing?

Asked by: Mark
They would be warm enough, however, they do not allow for securing any gators to the toe of the boot, therefore, as a very experienced snowshoer, (not a high school kid working at REI), I would NOT recommend them for snowshoeing.

Can you wear this with crampons?

Asked by: Davidpbend
​These boots are not crampon compatible. You may want to consider purchasing a pair of mountaineering boots instead. However, these boots will work with winter traction devices: https://www.rei.com/c/winter-traction-devices

Why is it that these boots are not compatible with crampons? Are they too big/Billy? 

Asked by: De La
The shank inside the boot is not stiff enough to accommodate mountaineering crampons. That said, the Hillsound Trail Crampons are a good choice. https://www.rei.com/product/875696/hillsound-trail-crampons

I take a size 12W can you tell me if this boot will fit me in a size 12 or if I where to go a size bigger wold it fit?

Asked by: drbowl
​The Durand Polar WP Winter Boots are a men's standard "D" width. The fit is snug. An EE width or wider will probably not work, even going up a size.
