My foot is size 7.5 and medium width. At first, I was worried the 8 might be a little big, but once I put it on and walked around I knew it was a good fit and I was glad to have purchased a 1/2 size bigger. Pros: First off, they needed no break in time and are very comfortable. I wore them for about an hour at home with no issues. Then I wore them on a 7 mile hike crossing streams, climbing stones/logs/trees and never did I experience any discomfort. The width was perfect. There is plenty of room in the toe box for wiggling and swelling on long hikes. I like the rubber toe protector. The shoes
have wonderful traction. The laces stayed right in place and never loosened up. I had good ankle support without any chaffing. I also felt the shoe had good arch support, and I have high arches. Oh, and the boots look cool, too :) Con: The boot was not completely waterproof. Water seeped in through the mesh lining of course. Water was not sloshing around my feet at all. The shoes
did not seem to hold onto water. But my socks did get wet. Surprisingly, I was still comfortable with my wet socks on in these shoes
. I should have brought another pair of sock and let the shoes
air out a few minutes and it probably would've been just fine. Because of this con, I will rate the overall as 4 stars. Overall, I love my new Keens and am planning another hike this week in them!
