    My wife and I bought Keen Targhee II's this spring for hiking on a Utah trip. I should have bought these some time back as we are both very happy. Anything you do, stay completely away from Rocky's...this is coming from a guy that at one time owned around 12-14 pair of Rockies...back when they were good boots in the late 80's and early 90's.

    I have a pair of New Balance 974's that I really like. They have good support and are still very comfortable.

    I wear Merrill Moab Ventilators for light hiking/walking and have been very pleased with them.

    I have a 4E width foot and have found New Balance to be about the only shoe company that provides a good fit. If you order them directly, you can return them if the fit is not right. They say a well fitted shoe should not require a break-in period before becoming comfortable.
