Function over style

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave as gift: Let's be honest, these shoes are not the most attractive but they sure are functional. The lace system keeps these really secure on your feet. I found them really comfortable even when they were wet and they were good to hike in. Fit was true to size and they were really adjustable for narrow feet.

keenly worn.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a pair of these roughly 7 years ago and still wear them.
I wanted a new color. These are even more comfy then ever.


    We bought these for our babysitter as a thank you gift and she absolutely loves them. She told us " I've worn them everyday so far this summer and they are comfy and yet still provide my feet protection. I feel like I can do anything in them"

    Casual Water Shoe

      If you are in a wet environment and need to traverse some land these are a great option. Not ideal for long hikes without breaking them in but, they have a robust build. Bought this with the use of river trips and camping in mind. The covered toe box is an extra advantage if you are looking to hike with them or walk in water as no one likes a stubbed toe!

      Cute nerd shoe

        Love these sandals for adventures or everyday use. I recommend Keens to anyone who will listen

        My Chacos of 6 years finally broke down and I needed new shoes. I bought these for my 10 day trip to Mexico, where we hiked the ruins, trails, and dove in the cenotes. These were perfect and honestly preferable to the Chaco sandals because they dried quickly after they got wet and I always felt supported during my hikes. The plus side is that they are super light compared to the Chaco sandals. I highly recommend them! Oh and even though the extra support in the front toe area is not the most attractive, I found that it was worth it because I often hike in rocky areas. Since then, I've hiked in pretty normal trails around North Carolina. I'd be eager to see how they hold up on the next trip.

        Walking in the jungle

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Got these for my girl for our trip to the Napali Coast in Hawaii and she loved them. They were supportive enough for her foot but didn't create any hot-spots on the 11 mile hike. There worked great when we were walking through mud, and sand. And easily washed out when you came across a stream. She loves them and will be taking them to Myanmar for her next trip.

        Small issues

          Had them for a month and one of the front straps came out from the sole . Would have been replaced by Backcountry however we where out of the US to long. Pity as they are cool shoes

          Fell apart much too quickly

          • Fit: True to size

          I got these shoes for a seven day canoe trip in the Boundary Waters with the hope they would be a great alternative to having wet boots all day. For the most part, I liked them a lot - only on portages with pebbly landings was I sad about them. But, they started falling apart on day three! The straps started tearing, and the sole started delaminating, which I wasn't super impressed with.

          • Size Bought: 10

          I really like these shoes because I've broken bones in my ankle and feet in the past and these shoes keep my toes protected, along with the support I need for my ankles. I originally bought them to wear in the baths at Virgin Gorda on a recent cruise, however I found myself wearing them to get on and off the ship in every port we were at. I do love flip-flops but these shoes provide me with a level of safety knowing that my bare feet won't get stepped on in crowds. They are true to size and snug, but in a good way. I have a feeling I will wear them often this summer on Martha's Vineyard.

          I love them!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          These are my first pair of Keens, and I love them! They're comfortable, they're versatile, and they pack well. Originally, I bought them for a trip to Costa Rica, but I've worn them so much more than I expected. They're great for the trails, the water, and even around town... anytime I know that I'll be on my feet for a long while, these are the shoes for me.

          Awesome shoe

          • Size Bought: 6.5

          I was looking for a similar shoe for quite some time before I bought these. Even though I couldn't try one on locally, this shoe is true to size. I could stay in them all day long, which I may do! They are snug to get on, but that's good because they don't move, and I have plenty of room in the toe. Yet, they are easy to take off. I HIGHLY recommend this shoe.

          I love this nerd shoes super confy I use it for everything without problem.

          Thinking of Getting a Second Pair!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 8

          These have lasted me almost a full year now with more to go! These have been through miles and miles of walking through Japan and also hiking in Haleakala in Hawaii! I honestly also use these for running, as they have good support for my wide and flat feet. Only drawback is that they tend to stink after a while. I can easily spray these down with a hose when I get home and they are as good as new but they make my feet stink and are sticky after a long day. Easily fixable when wearing socks but still annoying. The only signs of wear are color degradation and the front inside rubber where my feet hit each other is cracking a bit, but I don't see this affecting wear for another year or so. Hoping to buy a second pair soon, I love these so much! I wear these instead of sneakers!

          She loves them

            I got these as a gift for my boyfriends mom and she loved them

            I got these for my mom as an early Mother's day present. She's owned a few Newports for the last 5-6 years or so and absolutely loves them, so I figured I'd stay with the usual since hers need replacing. They're a very versatile shoe that can be used in almost any day to day setting.

            new favorite shoe

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
            • Fit: True to size
            • Size Bought: 8.5

            These Keen's are seriously my favorite thing in my closet. I wear them biking, hiking, golfing, running errands- you name it. I have pretty wide and flat feet, so shoe support is really important to me. I could wear them every day if it didnt get cold out. They are super easy to wash and I havent seen any damage to them. At first I thought they were a little too big, but as I walk around (especially hiking in the heat or through some water) my feet tend to swell up a bit and they fit perfectly. I think I would be nervous to size down.

            Not The Best Still Pretty Solid

            • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
            • Fit: Runs small

            My first pair of Keen sandals were a size 8.5 and it was a couple years before I saw signs of wear and tear. This pair I purchased was size 9.5 (comfortable with a pair of thick wool socks) so in the last 6 years the sizing has changed. This pair replaced a pair of Keens that I returned after less than one season of use because they were coming unstitched. This new pair has done some hiking in the Mt St Helens area late this season and I hope they last at least a couple years. Also, a great pair of shoes for river fording - that's why I keep buying them!

            Love these sandals

            • Fit: True to size

            My wife loves her Keens! She can wear these all day long with no blisters or problems of any kind. Her only advice, besides to buy these sandals, is to remember to rinse them off after sandy or salt water trips because that can get abrasive on your feet. But she loves getting out there with these sandals!

            Size issue

              So disappointed, had tried on a 7 1/2, just a little too small, ordered an 8. , could not even get foot in.......sizing must be off!
