Any experience with Keen Winterport boot?

I like the idea of an integral gaiter, but it goes against the guidance statement of nothing mesh or cloth (although the specs say its waterproof). The sole could be slightly stiffer for cycling, but it looks like a good compromise for me, and besides, maybe the "dual climate" material will stiffen up more as it gets below freezing. KEEN Winterport (not wintersport). Anyone have good or bad remarks about this boot or any of its component parts or materials?

I do not have that Boot but I do own 2 pair of Keens, a Low Hiker (Targhee II) and a Mid Hiker (VOYAGEUR MID). They are well made and stand up to abuse. I would buy them and not look back.

I've tried Keens and found them to be too narrow. With that said, I've never been told that I've got unusually wide feet.

I have wide feet and find that standard Keen shoes fit perfectly. They're my favorite shoe company in the universe. Second is Ecco.
