Keen Keen NoPo Lace Outdoor Lifestyle Shoes (Men's)

NoPo is short for North Portland, the place where these are designed, and where they know something about rain. The leather is fortified on the inside with a waterproof-breathable membrane, so you can go walking happily in the rain from September through June.

I originally set out to get the Keen Austin, priced a bit lower, but I didn't find them fit very well. Just to compare, I asked for the NoPo and the instant I put them, I knew I had to get them. It was just amazingly comfortable! So if you're thinking to get the Austin, don't rule out this model yet. You'll be surprised.
Pros: Stylish, Comfortable

Great shoe too bad it didn't last

Date:August 28, 2012
Bought this in May 2012 (now August 2012) and have worn it maybe 15 times and loved the shoe. Super comfortable (I have wide feet), not too warm, great tracktion. The only complaint is that the bottom part started to peel away after only 4 months. Will be returning it and I am reluctantly to buy another pair from keen.
Pros: Stylish, Comfortable, Breathable
Cons: came apart

Great alternative to Boots

Date:August 2, 2012
I wears these traveling between Vancouver and Juba, South Sudan. I also wear them in South Sudan when not wearing boots. They are good in rain and mud and I was surprised that they are not too hot. They are a great all purpose shoe and are really comfortable. For travel they are good to wear but a little bulky to pack. This has been a very successful purchase and I would recommend them as a sturdy all purpose shoe that works in most situations instead of boots; I also use them when attending meeting. I like these enough to submit my first review ever!

You'll love these...

Date:February 1, 2012
These shoes are the most comfortable I have owned. I use them as street shoes, not as hikers. They are at home at work, church, shopping etc. The leather is of very high quality as is the construction of the rest of the shoe. I have been a fan of Clarks & Merrells, but Keens are my new favorite. It would be nice to see Keen make a CSA approved safety shoe.
Pros: Comfortable

Best all around shoe for rain or wilderness use. Not comparing hiking boots of which there`s many on the market but are taller. For shoe height there is little choice. Tread is agressive with good traction and you don`t notice that when you walk. Very comfortable and stylish. Shoe will not feel out of place at work, church, restaurant. This Keen model is assembled at their Oregon facility. Has a lining of their own similar to Gore-tex. I`m not providing a warmth rating, not yet worn at -20C.
Pros: Stylish, Comfortable, Breathable
