Thanks to the Targhee II Mid's design, Keen has developed a devoted following that's well-earned. This light and comfortable hiking boot makes fewer compromises than most other lightweight products in its class. Straight out of the box, this model is ready to cruise mile after mile without developing hot spots or, really, any discomfort.
Folks interested in even more comfort in a lighter package should investigate our Top Pick for Lightweight Hiker, the HOKA ONE ONE Tor Summit Mid WP. For more support and water resistance from a lightweight model, we recommend the Lowa Tiago GTX Mid. For more lightweight and midweight models, view our complete Men's Hiking Boot review.
Keen Targhee II is the shoe version of this award-winning boot. With a $125 price tag, this shoe is $10 cheaper than the boot version. It weighs just under 2 pounds compared to the 2.5-pound boot, and would be a great option for hikers looking for the same protection and traction without the extra ankle support.
