KEEN – Men’s Durand Mid Waterproof Boot - Product Review

Editor's Rating: (4.2 / 5)

Pros

  • Waterproof, 4 season
  • Plenty of grip and traction
  • Wide toebox
  • Durable for short and longterm backpacking

Cons

  • Loose in the heel

Our Take:

The KEEN Men’s Durand Mid Waterproof Boot is a great 4 season mid-length boot that performs well on a variety of terrain.

Like other Keen boots, the Durand Mid’s were very durable and the waterproofing keeps the water out while staying breathable on the inside thanks to Keen’s Dry waterproofing materials, nubuck leather, and mesh uppers.

This will also help keep your feet warm and protected against the cold. Feel free to trek fearlessly through puddles and rain.

They’re lightweight on your feet at around 20 ounces and have a nice wide toebox which adds to the already comfy interior.

This is also great for those hikers with wider feet.

The outsole is made with a dual rubber compound that gives them plenty of toughness and traction while adding plenty of comfort on the trail.

They’re a little loose in the heel, but not so much that I’d call it a deal breaker or even that much of a downside. Just something to be aware of.

Also, remember to order these 1/2 size bigger than your normal shoe size.

Otherwise Keen delivers a great boot made right here in the USA.
