I've been a Keen purchaser for years, so I was excited to finally wear out an old pair of boots so I could buy a new pair this year. I wanted to love these so much & did right out of the box. The color is a bit darker than pictured. They are so flexible for casual or work, and I love that they're waterproof and oh so comfortable. The toe cap is smaller than the Briggs II which I love. The width did seem a little small, even for Keens, but I have a wide foot. The main problem I had with these is that the tounge is so far forward it allows your foot to slip forward which makes the shoe feel big and also causes your toe to move forward and hit the front of the boot. I haven't decided if I need a bigger size (all of my Keens are 7.5) or if its the shoe. I have a feeling a bigger size would be too big. Not sure if I'll end up keeping these, exchanging for a bigger size or returning.
