Let me say that I am an avid Keen wearer. I must own 6 or more pairs and I reviewed these boots on several sites before making my decision. Here is the good part. The foot bed is the traditional Keen footbed which means they have good support and your feet won't hurt wearing them. I wore them with just a light pair of smart wool socks and they were also incredibly warm. They are sturdy and waterproof. Unfortunately I made the mistake of only trying on the right one out of the box and thought they were Ok so threw the box out. When I went to wear them the first time I had the hardest time getting my left foot into the left shoe. The problem is that the tongue is attached and doesn't offer much flex to get your foot in. I find the portion of the shoe across the top of the instep to be very tight. Worse so for me because I have nerve damage there from a surgery. Since I was stuck with boots I made the best of it and finally got my foot into it. I decided to wear them around the house to see if I could get them to loosen up a bit. I'm happy to report that once on my feet they were pretty comfortable (although still tight across the instep) but did loosen up some a few hours later. I still cannot get them on without a huge fight so this is the biggest drawback. My feet are medium width so if you are narrow might not be a problem for you. I do love Keens and the shoe overall is great it just needs a mechanism to be able to get your foot in easier. I'm not sure but maybe ordering a half size bigger would have helped. I don't think I would buy them again for me because of this issue but I still think they would probably be great for those with narrower feet.Pros: warm, waterproof, sturdy, good support, Cons: hard to get on, tight across instep

Once again Keen makes an amazing winter boot. These boots are not only stylish but have a great sole for ice/snow. They are also so warm and cozy for those cold winter days.

I have been looking for a pair of comfortable winter boots, particularly for apres ski wear. I want nothing more than to end a day of skiing by putting my feet into a pair of warm, comfortable, cushy boots. After reading the reviews for the Keen Helena Boot, I thought this was the boot for me. Unfortunately, like a previous reviewer, I found the boot very difficult to get on and due to the stiff tongue and tight upper, I found the boot fairly uncomfortable even after it was on. I also did not like the lace up feature - even though the boot was tight fitting across the upper part of my foot, it felt like I couldn't tie the lace tightly enough to feel comfortable on the lower part of my leg. Most of my disappointment is probably because I am a huge Keen fan and never thought I would experience this much discomfort from a Keen product. I am certain that this is a high quality, sturdy and warm boot. And, it's very cute! It's just not for me. I would not recommend this item.Pros: sturdy construction, warm, good soles for traction in snow, waterproof, Cons: difficult to put on, tight upper, lace-up feature

I bought the woodrose/fudge color to coordinate with a pink jacket and pants. Subtle color is very pretty. The boots are very warm with plenty of room in the toe box area. I ordered a half size up to accommodate heavier socks nice fit.
