Keen Targhee Mid

A lightweight 3-season boot weighing 1040g (pair, size 11). Very wide, spacious forefoot and toe box; eVent waterproof lining; rubber toe bumper; reasonably stiff sole unit; fairly aggressive sole; low ankle cuff for extra comfort; superb comfort on easy terrain. However, toe box is not stiff and protective; other boots on the market provide more protection and support and they’re not as durable as a one-piece leather upper.

Verdict: A lightweight boot, best suited to easier paths.
