Four-wheel-drive performance for your feet. This waterproof hiking boot keeps your feet dry and lets them breathe, and the aggressive outsole bites into the terrain. It's built for all-day comfort, and the mid-cut height adds ankle support. Weighing 17. 4 oz / 493. 3 g (per boot), made with durable, waterproof and salt-resistant leather and featuring a moisture-wicking lining, the Targhee 2 Waterproof Hiking Boot is built off KEEN's traditional wider footwear form. KEEN products are consciously created using a natural, pesticide-free probiotic-based technology called Eco Anti-Odor for breaking down odor in sweat, PFC-free water repellent (in applicable styles) and leather sourced from Leather Working Group (LWG)-certified tanneries. KEEN makes shoes to make a difference. From the products it makes, to the actions the it takes, KEEN inspires people to live and work monumental every day. As a brand born for life outside, KEEN has a responsibility to protect and conserve the places where all people live, play and work.
From beaches to mountains to city streets, Keen believes the outdoors is anyplace without a ceiling. Keen believes in living a HybridLife, which means being part of a greater community that is full of people who create possibilities, play in the outdoors and care for the world around them.

After hearing so many good reviews on Keens (friends, family, websites) I expected a much higher quality boot only to be very thoroughly disappointed. Kudos to Amazon though on handling the situation!
After quite a bit of research, I settled on this pair of Keens. As a replacement to my Columbia boots that ive owned for the last 4 years. While the columbias are great and waterproof, they have been just a touch light for winter hiking and snowshoing. I wear a size 17, and my options are significantly more limited than the average person for footwear. After hearing about Keen for a number of years, and reading many of the reviews, I settled on these boots as a gift suggestion for myself, for the holidays.
After I passed the suggestion along to a relative, I began delving into the more recent warnings and reviews of the Keen brand: notably about how their manufacturing and product standards have changes, and the newest products over the last year or so have been of a far lesser quality than the products they had previosly sold to gain the positive reputation that Keen holds.
I read these negative reviews, saw the hundreds of other 5 star reviews, and noted that my size 17 boots are likely not hot sellers. Considering this, I thought that even if the manufacturing had been outsourced to china resulting in a lower quality product, it would be unlikely that a new batch of size 17s were made there, with this new process.
I thought these boots would be a great piece of gear. I could not have been more wrong.
I have now owned them for 24 hours, and one of the lacing eyelits just ripped straight out of the boot. The eyelit is the second up from the toe, and after inspection, Im not even remotely suprised that this happened, given the way it was stitched together.
The stitching pattern gives the impression that these eyelit straps are laced through the leather, down to the sole from the upper. This is not the case. The strap was tucked under the leather upper by maybe 3mm. Likely less.
I will post photos of the break, to further detail this review later this weekend.
Tl/dr: awful, cost cutting manufacturing processes have ruined this brand. Do yourself a favor and avoid this boot.
If anyone from amazon sees this: please consider creating a new listing for these keen boots. It is obvious that the product has changed, and the positive reviews from years past are terribly misleading.

There is no doubt which boots I will be purchasing in future!
Wearing a pair of boots 5-6 days a week in my job most can become worn out within 10-12 weeks and start letting in water far sooner these boots are of superior quality without a doubt , But please note I have looked after them I apply dubbing and G-Wax twice weekly and they have served me well and kept my feet dry .
You wont regret trying a pair .
Update: Bought in November 2017 - regular use over 2 months - still very comfortable, dry inside and warm.
