When I came to adventure equipment store to find a pair of boots, I didn't have any specific brand. I just want a pair of waterproof boots but fairly breathable when using it in tropical weather (I live in tropical country). I choose some boots depend on its look. When i tried Keen Gypsum for the first time, my foot like said Wow, it is wrapping me comfortably. Its wide toes fit with my wide feet. When I use it daily in tropical weather, it doesn't feel hot. And when I tried to step on the puddle and walking in the rain, it kept my foot dry. Its mid makes me easy to take off my shoes from my feet. I just need loosen the top laces, then pull out my foot easily.
Very comfortable right out of the box. I wore these for 4 days while backpacking (roughly 20-25 miles). The boots were very comfortable until the last mile hiking down the mountain. My heel started to rub a little. No blisters but it was only the last mile. I do like the boots and plan to wear them on my next trip. I don't think you'll be disappointed. They stayed waterproof in a good 5 hour down pour. Traction was great even on wet rock. The extra padded foot bed was nice with a 50 lb pack on.
