ThIs boot is light and the tread/ sole is nice and wide, but that is about it. I was hoping that I could get by foot in the boot easily along with tucking my jeans inside, but it was a serious chore. Even with getting a size 1/2 bigger as recommend, its still hard to get your foot into the boot without tucking your pants inside. The elastic draw strings do not tighten around the foot to make a secure fit or the top of the boot to create a seal. Once you get your foot inside it is comfortable but somewhat loose. Have fun trying to get it off. I do not think that the height of the boot is high enough either for deep snow or shoreline beach walking. I think Keen was trying to make a boot version of the popular Newport H2 sandals. Im sticking with my MUCK boots. sorry KEEN, Your'e not so KEEN any more.
