Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still great after a dozen mountains and counting. I bought these early last summer with a focus on backpacking the High Sierra Trail and Mt. Whitney. They are the first Keens I've owned other than sandals, so I was fairly skeptical about their attempt at a "serious boot." Now, with a few hundred miles on them including many with a heavy pack, the Durands have held up fantastically. They fit my wide feet very well. I've had no issues with the waterproofing after many creek crossings, rain and snow storms. I wear them with the green Superfeet insoles and have had no issues there, either. They are fine boots all around and I'm looking forward to my second season of wearing them on my adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Boots I bought these boots about a month ago and up until then I had a pair of Merrell's that I wore extensively for about 4 years. Those boots were the most comfortable and durable pair of boots I have ever worn until I bought these. They're extremely comfortable and feel as though they will give me the support and longevity that I'm looking for. Some other reviews I've read say that they run a bit small and to order one size larger. I haven't noticed that as being a problem for me. I wear a 12 and bought a 12 and they fit just right. They might seem a bit bulky to some but I think they're definitely the right amount of material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made, warm and dry This is a great boot that bridges the gap between light and heavyweight hiking boots. I have a combined total of 6 pairs of Keen boots, shoes, and sandals, and all have served me well. The Durands kept my feet warm and dry on a 4 day hike in 2 feet of snow in the Smokies. One caution: They may not be compatible with Superfeet or similar insoles with a hard plastic bottom. There is a raised platform in the Durand footbed that anchors and cushions the stock Keen insole. The platform will slightly raise the heel of a hard bottomed insole and allow it to rock back and forth, possibly causing blisters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made in America These are premium boots made in America. They have premium features such as swiveling metal hooks for the top two lace connection points. They are definitely a step above Keen's other models. The soles are made of a tougher material so I expect them to hold up quite well on rocky trails. The only issue that I had with them was that I have to be careful how I laced them - how tight and how loose and where. Otherwise the insole tended to hurt my foot after a while of use on hard surfaces. These are great boots and I expect to get years of use out of them. I would recommend them to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A serious boot from Keen I have purchased Keen boots for about 15 years. They have all been incredibly comfortable, and I have tolerated the rapid sole wear in the interest of comfort. With the last two purchases (first the Gypsum and now these), the sole durability problem has been overcome. Although I only have about 100 miles on these at this point, I am pleased with them in every respect. They have the same Keen comfort that I am used to, and they are great for the more challenging trail surfaces. I am pleased to see Keen manufacturing some of their models in the USA, including this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boot Overall this has been a solid boot. I had trouble with some higher end boots ragarding fit and thought I'd try Keen. This is my first pair of Keen footwear and so far I'm happy. The fit and feel has been good and they appear to be wearing well. I haven't gone on any long hikes with them yet still breaking them in and wearing them for short day hikes. The lacing system is unique and is taking a bit of patience to get used to. It's difficult to tighten the laces as you have to start low and move up versus being able to snug all the laces with one pull. All in all these appear to be well made and should hold up well. I'd recommend them for light hiking/day hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good boot, works for me Saw this boot advertised when it first came out last spring. Bought it at the Ann Arbor store where the Keen rep was on hand promoting it. Since then I've probably put 200+ miles on them, in a variety of conditions; snow in northern Michigan, grand forest on Bainbridge Island, rim-to-rim Grand Canyon, backcountry Yellowstone NP. They are holding up very well, sole is durable and shows very little treadwear. The footbed is wide (a Keen standard), but as my foot seems to be getting wider with age, this suits me just fine. I've had no blisters, hammertoes, sore arches or any other foot problems. Was a little concerned that the seam down the back would rub, but it hasn't. good support, good cushion, good traction, good boot (and it's made in the USA).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hiking boot EVER!!! I've got 60+ year old feet that have been only able to wear Keen boots for 10 years. They saved "my hiking life." Although the bottom of my foot would remain much more comfortable than in other hiking boots, such as Asolo, they would get sore eventually. Now Keen comes out with their new PU footbed, such as in these Durands and in their new Rialto sandals. Mindblowing difference! So springy in comparison that the bottom of my foot never gets sore. I'm now tossing all my lovely old Keens (e.g., Arroyo II sandals, Oregon PCT boots, Pittsburgh soft toes, etc.) and buying a new set of sandals, shoes, and boots based on this new Keen PU footbed, the most comfortable I've ever experienced!

I was wondering about the fit of the Durand Mid WP.  I've made the mistake of assuming other Keen boots would fit the same way as my Targhee II Mids, but they didn't.  Are these designed to fit the same wide feet that the Targhee II's fit?

Asked by: Humbuck
Per Keen, for length, the Durand is running 1/2 size small. This is the same as Keen lists for the Targhee. The toe box is average (not wide).

I have other Keen boots in size 12, but they were not wide. I have wide feet and wonder whether I should order them in size 12 wide or 11.5 wide, which is more my size.

Asked by: Deep Inquiry
We suggest ordering whatever size you have ordered in Keen boots in the past. If you have ordered a normal width and they fit you well, we recommend ordering the same size boot again.

Can you suggest a way of lacing the boots to stop them getting loose?

Asked by: David Brayford
To keep the laces from loosening up on the Keen Durand Mid WP Hiking Boots, you can tie a double knot after tightening the laces to your satisfaction. You may also want to try various other lacing techniques. There are lots of websites and blogs about lacing boots, you may want to do an online search for these and browse them.

What are some good after market laces for these boots?  Ones that may grip a bit better when tied. Is there a specific length as well?  Thanks!

Asked by: BobN
We recommend getting laces that are at least 45 inches long. All of our laces will provide good grip when tied tightly. For our selection of boot laces, please follow the link below:

Without getting hands on yet these basically look like a beefed up wrestling shoe, which I like. But how well do they handle pack weight? Specifically heavy packs in rocky terrain. Or should I be looking at a different boot ? 

Asked by: Lion Head
The Durand Mid WP Hiking Boots would be a fine choice with a heavy pack over rocky terrain. The boots have a thermoplastic urethane shank that will provide a lot of support and stability.

Hi tried on a pair of keen Gypsum mid and liked them as I'm doing more hiking (10+ kms) but found an amazing deal online for a pair of Durands.....the question is:. Do the Durand fit the same as the Gypsum? Can I "roll the dice" without trying them on?

Asked by: Wusthof
The Durand Mid WP Hiking Boots have been known to run a half size smaller compared to the Gypsum Mid Boots. We recommend ordering a half size up.
