Follow the trail farther afield in the Gypsum Mid Hiker, an all-terrain boot built with the technology to take you there. Boasting a 4mm multidirectional lug outsole, KEEN.Zorb Strobel construction, and a KEEN.DRY waterproof/breathable membrane, the Gypsum Mid delivers the stability, comfort, and moisture management needed for overnight hikes and winter ascents. Features a durable, waterproof nubuck leather upper; a removable metatomical, dual-density EVA footbed; a torsion stability ESS shank; external TPU heel stabilizer; and a nonmarking rubber outsole. Imported.
I bought these boots to replace an older pair of waterproof hikers. These boots are incredibly comfortable! The arch support is in the right place (I have tried on other Keen boots with the arch support too far forward), and the toe box is nice and roomy. I used to think that Keens looked too weird due to the big toe cover, but either I have gotten used to it or they have toned it down. I wish I would have discovered these boots sooner. I am considering buying another pair because these are so comfortable and I have a rough time finding comfortable boots. The boots I bought are 1/2 size larger than my athletic shoes.
Feels half size too small
Feels true to width
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
