I have a pair of the Durand boots and so was pretty certain I would like the shoe as well, and I sure do. I actually look forward to putting them on every day. I work 8-10 hours a day on a concrete floor and even shoes that you think are really really comfortable will let you down after a work day like that. Not so with these shoes. The only time I think about my feet during the day when I'm wearing these is to marvel at how good they feel. They have the classic Keen fit, quite roomy in the toe box, but I can cinch them down snug around the rest of my foot including my heel. Another reviewer mentioned heel slippage but the top metal shoelace eye/grommet is connected to a strap that runs around to the back of the shoe. That appears to be designed to tighten down/up the heel box with a final tug before you tie the laces. Works for me anyway... I generally wear between an 8 and an 8 1/2 but I got these in a 9. I was forewarned because the boots are the same way, they run a bit small. I...
I received these last night, so my review is based on initial impressions wearing them around the house. On a side note, some of you seem to return the shoes with serious miles on them - how do you do that? I'm afraid to wear shoes I'm testing out to the car as I don't want to show any wear on them.
I am a true 7.5 but wear an 8 in running and winter boots. I have Keen sandals that are 7.5 and they fit perfectly with plenty of room. Based on reviews here and Keen's own recommendation, I went to an 8 for the Durand. I'm not sure I could have done a different size.
The toe box is plenty roomy. A 7.5 may have fit here as well. I think an 8.5 would have been too long. Width is perfect. Mine do say American Built. Some mentioned having to tie under the tongue or other tongue issues. I don't have any issues here. The laces are just long enough to tie.
I do feel some heel slippage as others have mentioned. A bigger size would have made this worse. They claim...
These are very well built, comfortable hiking shoes that are made in the USA. There are a lot of reviews and comments with some Keen hikers that they appear to be seconds. Just make sure that you are selecting a Keen hiker that has the black tab in the middle of the laces that says AMERICAN BUILT. Some Keens are made abroad and some are manufactured in the USA. There does appear to be a difference in quality. I wore these straight out of the box for a week hiking trip. They were very comfortable. I am usually a 10.5, but went up to an 11 after trying them on in the store. I was able to wear a nice thick hiking sock as well. Some reviews complained about the tongue being too large, but I didn't have that problem at all. They look really nice too.
