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.
Top o' the line
OHHHH Man. Got these in this week while looking for something durable and comfy to wear as a full season boot. These must be the top of the line from keen. Construction looks rock solid, including metal eyelets on top. Leather is nice and thick, and seems like it will really be in it for the long run. A bit stiff at first, but that's good. They broke in within 4-5 days of sold walking, and now I feel like I'm wearing slippers. Ankle support is excellent. I really love these, fit perfectly right out of the box. I'm just worried they might be to insulated come summertime.
