Keen Pyrenees 2011

The Keen Pyrenees weighs 1300g (pair, size 11); leather upper; Keen Dry waterproof lining; sole unit extends around toe for extra protection; outsole has a deep lug pattern and those lugs are well-spaced to prevent clogging. But not much of a heel breast for downhill braking; toe box is not as stiff as others; ankle cuff is a little low; very bendy sole unit and upper softer than some.

The Keen Pyrenees is a good boot for hill and valley walking, particularly if you have a wider forefoot.
