My husband is a UPS driver for our local shopping mall and is on his feet for 80% of his day. I had bought him 2 separate pairs of Keen boots before these, both were the Targhee Mid II's in brown leather - a boot that I've personally loved for years (I have the women's version), but literally both of them were breaking at the seams within 3 months of wear due to all his walking. I was really let down until I saw these USA built boots and gave them a try this past Christmas. It's now July and they still look brand new, even though he's worn them almost every day since the first of the year both for work and hiking. They are his most favorite pair he's owned, and they are incredibly comfortable right out of the gate. Not foreseeing that I will need to replace anytime soon, but will DEFINITELY buy these boots again and again...and again.
