Have been wearing Keen for 15 years and these boots are amazing. I've had them for about 2 months and no issues. They fit true to the other keens I own which I am a consistent size 11. Most noticeable is how light they are. The fabric is different and make an odd "rubber boot sound" from time to time but not an issue. A nice looking foot covering of which I have received compliments and "hey what kind of boots are those?"
