Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Keens I love Keens and I bought these because they looked sleeker and less colorful than other options and they were a good price. I liked the red details, because for some reason I can never find Hiking boots or outdoor apparel that doesn't include shades of florescent vibrancy, pink, or pastels. Give me some Burnt Orange, red, dark green! Why do the guys get all the natural colors? To make a long story short, I got these, I love them, but the details are a dark, purplish pink. A little disappointing. Also, the heel is very short and doesn't have a heel pull to help get the shoes on, so they're slightly difficult to get into without a shoe horn. I'm taking them to my shoe guy to get some sewn on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Fit, Iffy Construction The footbed is comfortable, with the well-known Keen roomy toebox and firm fit at the arch and heel. Lacing: the good side is that the laces don't budge; downside is the boots are very hard to lace, to the point that my fingers get abraded from trying to tighten the laces! The BIG drawback is that, with fewer than twenty miles on the boots, in typical hiking/backpacking terrain in the Appalachians, the rand is separating from the leather at four points! The loose spots are small, but water did get in at one. Could coat the rand with Shoe Goo, but I will prob return the boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beet red = raspberry pink These were delivered today. They are comfortable on first wear, feel stiff but supportive. The color in the photo is a bit misleading. They are very dark grey and raspberry pink accents. Not red at all. Still like them, but I purchased to match my EMT uniform and we don't wear pink, we wear red. I'll wear these hiking too in cool/cold weather. I wear a 7 1/2-8 depending on the shoe. I went with the 8 and it is just right with wiggle room in the wide toe box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality boots that run small I found these lightly used at an REI garage sale in a size 7 -- the size of my other keen boots that also claim to run a half size small (as per they keen website). Liberty ridge seem to run even smaller than most other keens. They are okay with mid-weight socks but get pretty tight when using heavy-weight or wearing a liner pair of socks too. I also find that getting my foot into the shoe is somewhat difficult. That being said, these are nice looking (colors are nicer in person than on the website) and good quality boots, I just wish I would have gotten 7.5!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This boot has a low instep I have always loved the fit of Keen footwear because of the ample toe box. I typically wear a 7.5, but I ordered an 8 in this model to accommodate my Superfeet insoles, sock liners, and medium-weight hiking socks. Unfortunately, these boots are very tight in the instep even with the laces completely loose. I had to return them for Asolo TPS 520 GV Evo Hiking Boots—which, come in wide sizes and have ample instep space for adding your own insoles. If you have a high arch / instep area like I do, these boots might not work for you. I didn't get a chance to check them out on the trail due to poor fit, so I cannot speak to their durability and comfort. They did look like they were well constructed and if the boot might just be the one for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've Fallen In Love I saw these online and I knew I needed boot for an upcoming NOLS course so when I drove near an REI I decided to go see if they had them. They did and the people were really nice and told me they would be great for my course. I've been wearing them ever since then and I love them. They barely need to be broken in and they are so amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! I invested in these boots two years ago and have never regretted my decision! I love hiking and was tired of the poor support my (numerous) previous synthetic boots provided. These boots are lightweight, provide great foot-bed and ankle support, mold quickly to the foot, and prevent 'flooding' when crossing creeks because of their boot/tongue construction. If these ever wear out (doubtful) I would replace them immediately with another pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good support Have not worn them on a long hike yet but they feel good on short ones. They give a lot of ankle support.

I wear Keen hiking boots, shoes and sandals. I have a wide foot and a right foot issue and need the accommodation of the standard Keen width. Is this consistent in these boots?

Asked by: Apostle Island
The Keen Liberty Ridge WP Hiking Boots do have the traditionally wide toe box that the brand is known for.

I would like to wear these to Whitefish, MT this time of year. There is snow & temps from 30 to below. Will my feet stay warm & dry?

Asked by: Cutiecass
​These boots are waterproof and will keep your feet dry. They do not have any insulation so staying warm depends on the thickness of the socks that you use. For the temperatures that you described, a heavyweight sock is the best choice.
