The only way I can fully describe my admiration for this shoe is with a story. My dad and I go on an annual backpacking trip near his house in Montana. We're pretty serious backpackers - sometimes doing over 30 miles in two days. This past summer I got all my stuff together and flew to Montana to go on the trip but realized the day before that I had forgot my trusty boots. I had no choice but to buy new shoes and backpack with them without breaking them in (breaking cardinal rule # 1 for backpackers). We went with the intent to "take it easy" and planned out a route of 20 miles in three days, but after the first 8 miles my feet were so happy that we extended the trip. It was some of the best packing I've ever done. And not only did I not get any blisters, but I didn't get to the campsite with a fanatical desire to take off my shoes. Since then, I purchased an extra pair of these Keen boots because they make my feet just that happy. :)
I wore them for the first time during a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton and they were GREAT! I took an extra pair of sneaks with me because I feared I'd have problems because I hadn't worn the boots before. I also had blister bandages. I didn't need any of them!! These boots survived very wet snow, many muddy, flooded paths and Bison Poop! They were so comfy I thought I had replaced the arches with something 'better". I felt very confident on rocky paths. I had to buy 1/2 size bigger then my normal size.
Many of the more expensive boots hurt my feet and/or ankle so I am super pleased with these boots. (though not so pleased about my encounter with the Bison ;) )
[UPDATE 2014-06: I have since discovered Ahnu Women's Montara Boot. They are lighter and much more attractive than the Keens, and they are now my regular wear boot. But because they're more attractive I don't like to wear them out in rain and muddy conditions, so I still use Keens for that as they are easy to clean off later and seem to have better wet grip. I am not downgrading my review at all, I am still just as pleased with these Keens. I just have a more attractive functional walking boot to trade off with them now.]
I live in Seattle, where in addition to frequent steep hills there is also abundant rain and sometimes snow. I walk a pair of rambunctious young 40 pound dogs around two miles every day, up and down hills in all sorts of weather. If you've ever had 80 pounds of dog trying to pull the opposite way up or down...
