From a stout day hike, to a week in the Olympic National Park and its temperate rain forest, you'll be glad you're wearing the Keen Gypsum Mid Hiking Boots for men. A waterproof nubuck leather and mesh upper is backed up by KEEN.DRY, a proprietary waterproof breathable membrane designed to let vapor escape and banish water as well. The removable metatomical EVA footbed provides support and cushioning, as does the compression molded EVA midsole. An external thermoplastic urethane heel stabilizer supports the foot and helps dissipate shock, likewise with the ESS thermoplastic urethane plate, which also adds torsional stability. Traction is supplied by the non-marking rubber outsole with aggressive 4 mm multidirectional lugs. When you're ready to take on the trail, supply your feet with the weapon of choice, the Gypsum Mid Hiking Boots for men from Keen.

Keens rule
January 14, 2013

Bought these boots for my son and so far so good. He did need to exchange for smaller size. Have owned my Keens for 3 years. Comfortable the first day I put them on. Hiked 8 hours, my feet were warm and dry and we went through mud, snow and water. Recommend trax on ice when hiking rocks. Recommend trying them on in a store before online buying for correct fit. Great product, good service and price from Altrec.

Great boots!
May 29, 2012

These are very comfortable boots. The break-in period was short and after just a couple days of wear, they feel great. The issue others have raised about the sizing is true. My left foot is almost a full size longer than my right, so I usually order a 13. Most of the time that works but I can feel it with these. But it is minimal and barely noticeable for me, thanks to the wide toe box. I love Keen's and will definitely buy again.

Pros: look great, well made, very comfortable

Fit very badly - very disappointed
July 31, 2012

I was very excited to get these KEEN hiking boots. I own several different pairs of KEENs - even some winter boots I use for snowshoeing - but these fit TERRIBLE! They weren't too small - just rubbed my feet over the top of the big toe, cut off the circulation and my feet fell asleep. The heels were lose and the toe beds were VERY tight. I tried all kinds of lacing techniques - and configurations - but nothing helped. I wore them for over a week trying to break them in and I finally couldn't take it any longer and returned them. I *love* KEEN shoes - at least until I tried this style. Hopefully this is an anomaly and the style just didn't fit my feet.

Excellent boots
March 19, 2012

These have replaced my motorcycle boots due to there comfort and stability when moving the bike around and they are comfortable to ware for extended times when off the bike. I used to change out of boots if i had to walk around allot. Bought them for an upcoming trip to the hills around Las Vegas, turtle mountain awaits.
