    Keen Brixen's on sale at Cabela's.

    Not sure if this should go here or not but I know a lot of fatbikers use these boots. Cabela's has them on sale for $69.99. Hope this helps.

    Son of a - that's an even better deal than the one I got the other week...

    Can anyone recommend a pedal to go with these? I'm running Wellgo MG-1 flats, and they are dreamy with my Steger Camuks, but don't match up particularly well with the tread of the Brixens.

    The reason I want to get away from my Camuks is because they are slippery to walk up hills with and have no toe box armor.

    My ZuZu's worked great with this boot, tho I'd not recommend them as they are taller and heavier than most pedals, been loving this boot below 0.

    I have these boots and use Crampon pedals from Canfield Brothers. The boots and pedals work very well together

    I this is a couple of steps up the keen ladder compared to my keens. I love mine and really don't ever see myself going to a clip less winter boot. The keens have enough support for flats, but are flexible enough to hike out of any winter situation here on the rocky east coast.

    I use "stolen" pedals. They are wide and have good grip. I originally ought them for another bike, but drafted them for some fat bike use.

    I have my eye on the twenty6, the amps and some of the other super slim ones. I think we need a pedal thread.

    I've used the Shimano DX pedals off my wife's bike in the winter with these boots, no issues. Just bought the 45N Heuerspecs, but have not had the opportunity to try them.

    I think they fit pretty true to size. Order normal size. There's a decent (not a lot, but decent) amount of adjustability with the laces to adjust for sock size. All my Keens (sandals, shoes, and boots) are the same size.

    If you do the fatwallet thing, Cabelas has 4.0% cash back through fatwallet as well.

    Thanks for the info. I went for 11 1/2 due to I read this after I ordered the shoes and heavy socks + I'm a wide. I'll report how they fit.

    Keen boots run 1/2 size smaller. The shoes run true to size. I saw a bit wider than a normal shoe. I'm a Keenaholic..........I currently have 11 pair of Keens in the closet.

    Thanks for the great tip! I'd been coveting these boots, but couldn't find them for a good price. I'm anxious to ride in them!

    I feel the same, width seems good with plenty of room in the toe box but the length seems to run 1/2 size small.
    And I love beer!!

    True, but I have not found a lighter boot/sock/bootie/gator combo that keeps my toes as warm when the temperature drops below 0 F.

    Just got mine today, wow that was fast! They fit great, I got a 1/2 size bigger to accommodate extra thick socks and I think they will work great. I have a really wide foot (EEE) and the width is fine for my foot. They feel really good and look even better, I'm really happy with them so far. I can't wait for some more snow! Thanks to everyone that recommended these!

    Thanks for the heads up; I just ordered a pair. Anyone know how well these work with snowshoes (MSR Denali)?

    If you haven't ordered yet, I found a coupon for free standard shipping that saved me $10.95. Type in 2REWARDS
