The Keen Men’s Targhee II Hiking Shoes are a tough and durable hiking shoe. They are made to perform well on hard ground, rock and mud while moving with ease. This shoe is available for most foot sizes and comes in wider models. There are a number of earth tone colors to choose from.
What Is This Shoe Made Of?
The Targhee Hiking shoe is made from 100% leather and has been manufactured in the USA using imported materials. The boot comes with a rubber sole to prevent slippage and with a wide heal measuring 2” for stability. This is a shoe designed for daily wear and will last longer if it is cleaned occasionally with a leather cleaner and conditioner. This shoe is available online and in-store at most footwear stores.
The shoe is designed to be put on with ease and taken off in exactly the same way. It has an easy pull-on heal and Torsion ESS shank for stability which makes this shoe perfect for balancing as well as a hydrophobic mesh lining designed to let your foot breathe while keeping the water out. It has a padded tongue for comfort and directional lugs to help it fit the contours of your foot. The shoe is fitted around the heal and has a molded insole so it will conform to your foot and fit tight. The shoe is also recommended to be purchased a ½ size large than needed to make this shoe fit more accurately to your foot. The weight of the shoe is 15.4 oz which makes this a light and durable unit that is also waterproof.
Keen Men’s Targhee II Hiking Shoes Reviews
The ratings on the Targhee are mostly high with the quality and fit. The shoe is designed for everyday wear that is what most people are able to get out of the shoe. It is also highly rated for people with Plantar Fasciitis because of the stability built around the heal and the 2” elevation which shortens the tendons attached to your heals. The boot is perfect for long term use as well and comfortable. Not all reviews were positive though. It sounds like there are a few defective models available because a couple of people indicated that their shoes fell apart within the first six months with little wear to them. There aren’t many reviews like that, but enough to indicate that not all the shoes were made equally. There are plenty of reviews indicating that shoes lasted well over a year with daily use.
