Hiking Pikes Peak: KEEN Fan Talks about Experience


Quote by Will McClung of Bartlesville, Oklahoma posted on KEEN Facebook page:

It was your shoes that got me to the top of Pikes Peak, after my 13.1 mile climb, which took me almost 12 hours, everything hurt but my feet. i remember thinking about that the next day, my knee hurt so bad that i could not bend it, my back and shoulders hurt from carrying my pack, and my chest hurt from having to breath so hard because of the thin air above the tree line. my feet never once hurt, never ached, never soar. the only part of me that didn’t hurt. thanks so much for making great shoes, i work close to 70 hours a week, i will never wear anything else again.
