5.0 out of 5 stars four wheel drive for your feet, December 13, 2005
This review is from: KEEN Men's Targhee II Hiking Shoe (Shoes)
From the same company that makes the terrific "Newport H2" sandal with the super natural "metaomical design" fit. The Keen Targhee is like wearing a Humvee for your feet. It with waterproof construction for dry feet and an agressive outsole with 4 millimeter lugs that bite deep into the terrain for excellent traction. And they have the famous Keen toe bumper.

It is very waterproof as I can attest to. The waterproof leather upper helps keep feet dry on rainy days and muddy trails. It has an interior waterproof liner bootie too. The special carbon rubber outsoles are similar to the ones on the Keen Sandals, very grippy and non-marking, and they never seem to show any wear. They are multi-directional and dig in, but are not slippery on wet surfaces like rocks or cement in rain or surf. They come in few colors, but the colors have weird names. "Shadow" is an olive for example.

It has a good secure fit laceup capture system that do not come untied like my other tennies did. THe straps have a little reflective feature to them. Htey have a nice pull-on strap at the heel. They are light in weight at only 14 ounces for the pair. On sizing, I reccommend buying one full size larger than usual.

How durable are these shoes, I'm seeing some reviews on here that say they don't last very long, what has been your experience. :)

REPLY: My review was written in 2005, and my pair held up until early 2012. They finally fell apart, but they held up better than any tennis shoe or hiker I have ever owned. Having said that, I understand from more recent reviews that the newer versions of the same shoe are not holding up as long, something to do with the change in country of origin they claim. So I have not replaced mine yet, as I am leery of these complaints.
I also own a pair of Keen Newport Sandals I bought in 2005, and those sandals are still doing great. I beat the hell out of them, hike, swim, you name it and they are going strong. Good luck!
