The reason for the 3 star rating is due to the fact that these boots began to fall apart about the 5 to 6 month mark. The big toe section of leather began to separate and both boots lost their waterproof capability. That being said, these boots were very comfortable and lots of room in the toe box. They were very waterproof as well, for the first 5 to 6 months. I was super happy with these boots. It's a shame they didn't last longer. However, Keen's customer service was very helpful! The boots were under warranty, and they honored the warranty in a timely manner. I just recently purchased a pair of Detroit XT (soft toe) with the promo code. I hope they last longer than these boots did. My rating would have been a 5 star for sure if the boots would have lasted a year or so. 3 seems fair since they were a great boot at first, and Keen's customer service was exceptional!
