    Not as good as the old Liberty Ridge Boots

    By

    Comments about Men's Mt Vernon 6" Boot (Soft Toe):

    I purchased the Mt. Vernon because the Liberty Ridge boot is no longer available. I've worn and loved the Liberty Ridge boots for many years and they were without a doubt the longest wearing, most comfortable, waterproof boots I have ever owned. The Mt. Vernon not so much. After less than two months some of the speed lace hooks fell off. Keen sent me a new pair as a warranty replacement, which was fantastic, but they are not as comfortable as my old Liberty Ridge boots. As worn as my old boots are, I am wearing them again. Keen.....please bring back the Liberty Ridge!

    2nd pair of these. I work at an airport and most boots the soul is worn out in about six months from the concrete. These last about a year. My only complaint is the insoul could be a little more padded. They are also quite warm, ok for Seattle tho.

    Comments about Men's Mt Vernon 6" Boot (Soft Toe):

    These boots are my second pair and work good for me due to my wide feet. Not many wide shoes work for me. I would like to see Keen have a larger selection of soft toe shoes in wide. There were many styles I wanted but all had steel toes.

    Comments about KEEN Men's Mt Vernon 6" Boot (Soft Toe):

    I am a fluid power specialist. I am everywhere from the bilge of a ship specifying valves to steel mills changing out hydraulic lines. Never at any point in the past year have I thought my boots weren't up to the days work. I have found them to be comfortable and durable. I know that I have personally changed 4 other personnel over to the Keen product line since the first of the year. These boots don't seem to have the typical issues with this style sole. What I was worried about was the sole coming away from the upper in high stressed areas like right behind the toe. For those of you that constantly wear out the toe, these may be your shoes. Good Hunting Gentlemen.

    I doubt that I would buy this boot again.

    Comments about KEEN Men's Mt Vernon 6" Boot (Soft Toe):

    This boot was a good boot starting out. In fact, it still has its waterproof qualities intact. However, after about 8 months or so, both boots cracked deeply from side to side. It cracked all the way to the liner or insole.

    Arcadia Trail Report

    By 

    from RI

    Comments about KEEN Men's Mt Vernon 6" Boot (Soft Toe):

    I have been using a pair of the Mt. Vernon boots as my primary day hiking boot all summer. I have logged many 5 to 6 hour weekend hikes and 2-3 hour hikes a couple evenings a week. Included was an overnight on the AT. Well over 200 miles on mixed, rocky terrain with an old ALICE pack toting some 25#.

    Overall I enjoy these boots, they are comfortable and have a generous toe box. I too have noted the hard entry/exit of laces in the speed lacing eyes. While these can be a pain to unlace the gripping of the laces really helps keep the lace tension set. Where as with other style lacings it is not uncommon to adjust laces after walking some hours. In the Mt. Vernon I can walk 6 hours without touching a lace.

    One of the other reviews mentioned sole problems. While I have not seen failure of the sole I have noted an increase in flex and loss of stiffness especially on 80-90 degree days. The entire boot tends to bend at the toe end of the lacings and approximately in line with the shoe wide groove in the outer sole. With insoles removed one can feel the crease in the soles when flexing the boot.

    This is somewhat disappointing as tread and leathers are all in great shape. To help combat this tendency I've installed turf toe spring steel insoles. While these certainly restore stiffness, it remains to be seen how well my feet take to them.

    It is probably unfair to rate a work boot to hiking standards so I'll decline the bottom line recommendation below and let any reader make their own determination.
