Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and warm. Great fit. I just finished my first snowshoeing in my new Keen boots. 2 hours in about 20 degree temps. Went 3.5 miles. Climbed some hills through powder. These boots felt great. Toes stayed toasty warm. Very satisfied. I picked one size larger than my typical everyday shoe size. Great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Tru-Fit Keen - Nice and toasty I recently purchased these and used them to hike up Bromley Mtn. It was single digit weather. Initially, they are a bit stiff as noted in another review, however I wore them for a week at home to break them in before hitting the mtn. They were comfortable, kept my toes and feet warm with just using just a pair of hiking socks. They had good traction on the steep pitch and I was confident when I placed my foot down the grip would hold. I wear a 11.5 and these are a tru-fit pair of Keens, unlike my Targhee II's. I would recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes my ankles HURT I bought these boots 2 weeks ago and have tried to wear them a couple of times a week. They make my ankles hurt. I thought I could break them in, but the design of the upper part of the boot has a lip that rubs the leg just above the ankle and it just hurts to wear them. I really have tried to wear them as I could have bought a way cheaper boot that does the same thing. I think I am going to have to give them to the salvation army. I dont know if that is even right to give someone something that is wrong. Poor design and a whole lot of money. Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Comfy I got these boots to wear for hiking in the cold. I needed something that was mostly waterproof and warm. These are both. The are a little tough for break in because they are mostly a tough rubber but after a few wears they are extremely comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best boots I have ever owned! I have always preferred REÍ products to the other brands! This time you have really outdone yourselves. These are the best boots I have ever owned. The inside is like a pillow top mattress of comfort, the warmth is fantastic and yet not making my feet sweat when working indoors. They were 4 days early and they are light and beautiful. The outer boot is fantastic and well styled. They kick butt in the snow ice and rocks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Heel Pain Pass on these if you have heel spurs. There is a little rubber knob underneath the insole which is built into the sole. It irritated my heel spurs just walking around the house. They're much uglier in person than they are in the product pictures, although I didn't buy them for the looks. These run narrower than the Targhee II FYI.

I have a pair of Targhee II mid hiking boots. I normally wear size 11.5, however in the Targhee II, I purchased a size 12. I have read they run a half size small so purchasing he 12's worked. Would the same be true for Keen Durand Polar Shell boots?

Asked by: jiber
According to Keen and our customers, the Durand fits true to size.

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 Shell 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.

I wear size 10 EEE or 10 EEEE depending on the cut. These sizes available?

Asked by: Rockinshoeboo
​Keen only makes medium (D) width in these boots.
