This is my third pair of KEEN Targhee II's. I use to love them! This pair of KEENS is only a year old and I noticed the leather and rubber of the sole started to separate to the point there is an open hole. I do not wear the same pair of shoes every day and at a year old i think there must be a quality problem. Although i still love the feel and comfort of these boots, i have to give them 2 stars as i am very disappointed with their longevity.

This is my third pair of this boot. I really like this boot. Fits very well around my foot. It's stable around my ankle. The toe protection is outstanding for light duty dirt kicking, but not steel toe. The waterproof is somewhat true, my foot doesn't get wet, but after walking in a few puddles of water or wet lawns I do feel an increase of moisture (not water) around my foot, which is awkward.

I didn't have any issues with the first pair, and I was very happy to be able to purchase my second pair. The second pair was great at first, and I would give the boot 5 stars if it weren't for one issue.
1. Some of the treads on the bottom of the boot come dislodged, but they don't completely fall off. They dangled on pair number two within a relatively short time after purchasing, I could have returned them, but this issue didn't affect my ability to use the boot, so it wasn't worth my time.

The third pair (currently for this review) is holding up well. However I noticed the strap that you use to pull your boot on at the back of the shoe with the reflection material, is stitched opposite from the other shoe, which is maybe why this shoe cost less at the time I purchased.

When you build a product you should try and perfect it and I believe Keen was on their way to perfecting this shoe, which is why I purchased my second pair. The quality control is not there and if they can figure that part out, then this would be a 5 star boot, I thought they would have improved their quality control with pair number 3. Again these are all minor issues. My biggest concerns are fit and how well these shoes hold up to 10 hour days, they do well and last several months.

When I first found these boots I was so pleased with the comfort and wider toe box. I had never tried on Keens before. I bought these boots, and I hike daily in the mountains near my home, and the cushioning and comfort were great. Unfortunately, within two months the darker rubber part of the soles began separating from the main sole, so I took them back. I do have two other pairs of Keens that I love, though it would be nice to have hiking boots with the comfort of Keens that would last.

I bought these shoes at a national outdoor store chain 9 days ago. I've worn them everyday since and I must say they are extremely comfortable. Nice wide toebox, secure lacing system, very waterproof and breathable, aggressive lugs on the sole...

It's just too bad the sole won't stay on. NINE DAYS. That's it. That's all I got to wear them before the outsole started separating from the midsole like many of the other reviewers reported.

Luckily, the store is nearby, and I was able to walk in and return them. They had one more pair in my size, and I was going to wear the new ones home...

Except I couldn't lace them up. The top left shoelace hook on one of these Targhee mids was manufactured BACKWARDS. The hook was facing the front of the shoe, making them impossible to tie.

The store offered a refund or exchange for another half size up which was too big. Since I was already 0 for 2 on these Chinese-made Keens, I went with a German-made boot at a $75 premium. Here's hoping for a boot that'll last more than a week, eh?

Have purchased this exact shoe before and had no problems but barely one month later this pair is falling apart. To make matters worse, we are past the 30 day return window so I'm stuck with them. Have tried to speak with customer service at Amazon to see if I have other options, but cannot find any contact information on this site. What a pain.

Updated Review: I found where to contact customer service with my problem and received quick response to resolve the problem. I would rate Amazon's customer service as excellant.

These are absolutely terrible boots that don’t last, the customer service rep even told me that the tarhegee II was not made for hiking. How is a hiking boot not made for hiking? the soles came off at just about every point on the shoe within 30 miles, and when I contacted them they made me go through all these hoops, they finally agreed to send a new pair of boots but a different model ( I cant recall which one). upon receiving the boots in the properly named box, I assumed it was the boot I was told I was going to receive. after hiking 30 miles in white mtn. national forest I contacted them again and told them my boots were falling apart. It turns out they sent me a less expensive boot from the ones I originally bought. they insisted that I send them pictures of the inside of the toungue to observe the tag. the funny thing was it was just a white square ( it was like this as soon as I bought it, but did not suspect any foul play would occur) with that and the fact that the boots were already destroyed, I sympathized with them that this in fact was the boots they sent me and this was the wear that had occurred. they then started to accuse me of lying to them and trying to scam them for a free pair of boots and really insulted me. I could not believe what I was hearing from them and the situation I was in. after that I vowed to them that I would make sure I would do what I can to make sure other thru hikers would not go through the same ordeal. I was very displeased with the whole experience.

I'm on my third pair of these. The first two lasted about a year/year and a half of almost everyday use. I don't hike mountains (I live in Iowa) but do wear them hunting and walking in all kinds of weather so they get used pretty hard. After a year or less the waterproofing gives out, but but the shoes are still usable. They are very very comfortable. I got my last pair on sale at Gander Mountain for $107.

You will hear this often about Keen's -- they feel great but they don't hold up to the rigors of even moderate hiking. That was my experience. Hiking in the southeast (i.e. not the rough & rocky west), averaging maybe 20 miles a week, my Keen's lasted 5 months before the cloth shoe string ringlets ripped, which may not sound like a big deal, but it is. Losing 1 is not so bad, but when the first occurs, the others follow; afterall, the stress is re-distributed to fewer ringlets...

The good news, however, was that Keen didn't hesitate to replace the boots by giving me a credit for the exact amount of the boots, to be used on their ecommerce site. Shipping was free. The online request was very easy & they don't require you to return the old boots. They request a receipt, but the service rep said not to worry about it. (I did provide them with a credit card statement.)

I could have chosen any other boot, but stuck with the Targhee II mid for 1 big reason -- it's the most comfortable hiking boot I've ever worn. I tried at least a dozen boots -- including one pair that I took home -- before settling on the Targhee II.

You may be wondering how New Boots have held up. The jury is still out, but they've held up better than the previous pair, including a 2 week trip to the Rockies, which is very rough on any boot. If I get another year out of these boots, I will feel that I will have gotten value for money.

So, to summarize -- 1. Comfort is 5 stars; 2. Service is 5 stars; durability of boot is 1 star.

I have had two pairs of Keen sandals over the years and loved them so I thought I would try a pair of their boots. I don't wear them a ton, just doing yard work and at the RC track. In short order I found out they are NOT waterproof. Both my feet get wet in the same place on both boots....right in the corners where the last eyelets are. One of the boots also has a lug that came unglued and flops around now. Since Keen has gone big it appears their quality has gone in the wrong direction. I won't buy another pair of Keen anything.

I picked up a pair of the Keen Targhee II boots several years back for a light hiker to be able to move toward ultralight backpacking. They were instantly comfortable and lasted for a lot of miles. They are reasonably water resistant though, that is not worth a lot since they are not particularly high boots being just over the ankle. Stepping in a few inches of water will splash over the tops and leave your feet wet in any boot of this height. That being said, I have never felt any water come through the fabric or seams when walking carefully through water.

I was so impressed with how comfortable and durable these boots are, when I saw them on sale, I bought TWO more pairs. They have a nice wide toe box that allows you room to move your toes. The way the laces lock at the top allows you to pull the laces tight around your ankle without cinching up the rest. This is amazing to keep your toes from going numb while keeping the boots firmly fastened to your feet. There is also room to loosen the laces and wear thick wool socks as well. They are light enough that you can wear them all day and comfortable enough to wear them around camp untied.

From the marching around the sugar sand in the scorching summer of Florida to climbing mountains in the frozen winter of Washington state, they stayed flexible and comfortable. I highly recommend these boots for anyone who wants to go light on their boots to travel faster on the trail, but still demands comfort and durability.
