Great shoe! Tough as nails and comfortable too! Only gripe is that if you walk in sandy water, it it almost impossible to get the sand/pebbles/etc out of the shoe without taking them off. Also, I wish the material would dry a little quicker. Have wet feet all day sucks.
Picked these up for our trip to Kauai. I wanted a versatile pair of shoes for everything so I didn't have to pack my Jersey Shore Suitcase of Shoes. They do the job wonderfully. From the airport to the muddy Nepali coast trail and everything in between. Took them in the ocean when I dove into Queens bath followed by a dip in some waterfalls. When we were done I tossed them in the wash and air-dried and it’s like they are brand new. Well worth the price!
Bought these for my husband who hates sandals. Had to find something he'd wear on the boat and around the beach other than his athletic shoes and socks. He loves these shoes and they are such an improvement!
my husband loves these shoes. i think because he can walk through anything and just wash them off. it is one shoe i don't fuss about if they get dirty. they are really well made and can take just about any abuse you can do to them . you can count on these shoes for a while.
"Great summer shoes for just about anything"
I've had these for about 5 years now and I wear them a lot every summer. They are great for activities that require lots of walking. I wear them mostly for the comfort compared to my trusty flip-flops (also Keen). They are great sandals for a wider foot and a higher arch and have great support. I'm not sure if they still advertise them as odor-free (they did 5 years ago). They are not, but it doesn't really matter since you can throw them in the washing machine without much care. Overall, one of my favorite sandals of all time.
"Great shoe, but it may just have been mine that wasn't great."
Even though this is an amazing shoe, one that I have taken on many hikes of many levels, mine however, got loose threading that started to come out towards the heel of the sandal right to the back of the Keen logo. Now don't get me wrong, I love these shoes and even though they ripped, I still wearing them( I am wearing them now). Keen has an amazing refund policy, and after having owned them for two months, they got me a new pair. With my refund, I purchased the leather version, to hopefully avoid this problem. This is an amazing shoe, and you can really use it in many ways.
I've purchased water shoe/hiking shoe before and this one is far the best. These sandals are very versatile. I've done lite to mid hiking in these and they did not disappoint. The sole have excellent grip as well as durability. Good for kayaking too. Warning...it does give you a killer tan-line on your feet (zebra style)...it looks cool and your friends will be jealous. Will buy again when this sucker wears down....not for a long time.
