Defective build

I bought these last Spring in a larger size for my son to grow into. Huge mistake. After just 2 weeks these started coming apart and a month in they are total trash. The soles are separated so much now it's a trip hazard. What a waste of money, and I can't return them because I bought them ahead of when we needed them.

Mine broke in a month

I am so surprised by this quality. I thought this brand is of good quality. :pensive: but my son liked these shoes, even though broken. He still wanted to same one.

Kid loved them, but came apart

Sadly, we had the same experience as many others mentioned. Within a few days of normal wear, over half of the upper was coming away from the sole. We’ve had many many pairs of Keens over the years and all held up so well. My son wants the same pair again, but we will try something else since this was far 1 bad pair in this style.

Broke in 2 days

This is our replacement pair. My son LOVES his Keens, and we had this style in blue but after 2 months of normal wear the rubber on the bottom started to separate from the fabric. We used the warranty and got a replacement pair in black. He loved them and praised them.. then wore them to Disney for 2 days and the same issue is happening even worse this time. I’m so bummed. Not sure if this is common for this shoe style or what.

Big kids notch tracer sneaker

I love these sneakers. 1st I am a 73 year old woman with a girls size 2 foot.My podiatrist recommended I purchase Keen several years ago for arch support,Keen is the only brand that makes sneakers in my size with the arch support it’s the only brand I can wear to walk comfortably. I love the color choice I purchased and would Love to be able to get solid white I also use the sandals for all my Aqua fitness workouts thank you for making a great quality shoe with support please consider making plain black sneakers also plain white in this girls size 2 for other senior citizens with children’s sizes and elderly foot needs

Kids loved them, lasted a month, will try once more

My kids both loved these. One pair lasted a month...four inch separation of the upper from the sole. I'll retry them once given Keen's reputation...we've been wearing Chandlers for years and will go back to those (ugh, boring colors though) if these don't pan out. Sure hope Keen will stand behind the destroyed pair.

Useless after a week!

Upper shoe separated from sole after 1 week of my 7 year old wearing them. She isn’t abnormally hard on shoes. The glue malfunction was the cause. Slow response from Keen when I emailed them

Beautiful shoe

Just received these today in a size 3. I have a smaller foot so can order kids shoes and these are very comfortable and a nice looking shoe.
