Although there is already a shoe discussion, I wanted to narrow it down to just the Keen Milo II. I have been using my Bite shoes for the past few years, but will probably need new ones this summer. I was thinking of splurging for the Milo II but I wanted to hear from people who have them if it is worth it.
The first ones are really comfortable and very waterproof (2nd year in them). I'm easy on shoes so they're durable enough for me however the comfort levels bring durability into question. I have worn other keens but the Milo's tread is less slick on teepads (wet, dirty etc.) I have more traction on muddy upshots/putts etc. I will buy them again but wonder how others who go through two pairs of shoes to my one would fair in them. I prefer comfort and traction to durability and will buy the Milos again. Hope this helps.
Don't waste your money. I did not buy the Milo, but I've had several Keens over the years and models that were based on the Milo or vise versa. Keens are pretenders. The mid soles are to soft and there is minimal molded plastic to offer enough lateral supprt. Same with the fabric. It's not dense enough for proper lateral support. My so called water proof Keens. Were just that, for about a MONTH!
If you are going to spend that kind of money. But some Montrails or Garmonts. They offer the best support out of the many shoes I tried. Some distant runners up (no pun intended). Are The North Face (they would be my favorite, but they don't fit my foot properly), Salomon, Vasque, and Merril.
One thing you have to understand. Those are the shoes that fit me best. Case in point, The North Face. Great shoes, but I'm between their full sizes and half sizes.
