Keen Liberty Ridge boot ONE YEAR UPDATE!

One year later, I provide my thoughts on these boots HERE

Final Update Baffin Kiki Boots

Summer is in full swing in Southeast Alaska which means temperatures are finally hitting the 60s and sunny days mixed in with the rain that come from living in a rain forest.  It also means it is time for us to transfer which has limited the number of hikes that Addison and I have taken, but we have gotten in a few more miles on the boots.  Overall the performance is stellar and the boots have become her favorites.  Read on for her final thoughts on the boots.

Winter hiking is a family affair in the Boyle household and my 10 year old daughter is accompanying me on more of my hikes.  She asked if she could test gear too and 4alloutdoors and Baffin obliged her request.  She is testing the Baffin KIKI Women’s boot this winter.  I am writing on her behalf, but the review is hers.  Read more on her initial thoughts below.

Keen Liberty Ridge Boot


I received the Keen Liberty Ridge boot for review purposes and immediately was impressed.  Right on the box was a sticker which said “American Built” and that is unusual these days.  Upon initial inspection of the boots, I felt they were very well constructed from various rubber types and a smooth brown leather.  The tread looked quite aggressive, which I liked immediately. Full Review

Boots that is.  Warm, waterproof, stylish boots. Sperry sent a pair of Women’s Winter Harbor Boots for review purposes.  Now, all I need is some winter weather. Its getting colder in Maine, but no snow yet, and barely any rain.  Read the first part of my review, then check back in about a month for my thoughts on the boots after I get some real use.  Its Maine, it has to snow in December, right??

Ready for Fall?  I am!  I received the Bogs Plimsoll women’s boot to review, and I was all ready for a typical, wet, Maine fall.  So far, its the driest September in 60 years. I’m actually hoping for some rain very soon, or I may have to go play in the river.  They are the low cut version, coming to a few inches above the top of my ankle.  So far, the boots are comfortable and feel well cushioned.  Read my initial review HERE.
