Comfy, stylish and well-built

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10

It's a pretty wide shoe, compared to a lot of women's footwear, but comfortable and fit true to size.

2nd pair of these shoes

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

Bought for my wife, she says... Love KEEN's consistent quality and sizing. This is my second pair of this shoe that I have bought, and it won't be my last. I had major foot reconstruction surgery, so I played around with insoles for a while, finally settling on the insole that came with the shoe. I've taken them hiking through dust and mud and they still look great! I love the wide toe box of the the KEENs. I wear a size US 7 but wear these in a 7.5 because I like a little more room for my toes.

Great Shoe!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes fit perfectly. I have a narrow heel and wider at the toes so it is very difficult to find shoes that fit comfortable without slipping off my heal. These are comfortable and support my feet nicely. I did have to return the first pair for a smaller pair by half size. The customer service was awesome! Not only to they fit nicely, but they really look great. I can use as casual or for work. I think I may need another pair!

Comfortable walking shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 7/5

I got the shoes for my wife. She had a chance to use them on a Peru
trip with lot of walking. The shoes provide good protection and the
wide front allow room for the toes.

Texture of shoe different

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I have order this shoe twice now and the color and texture on the toe area is not the same. I sent the first pair back thinking it was a fluke. I ordered another pair and it is the same problem. I will send these back again.

Great for work and play

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

I work in remote settings and often have to hike to get to where I need to be, and our uniform requires black shoes. I have coworkers who wear bulky EMS boots, but I love how easy I can get in and out of these shoes. These shoes are perfect because they are light and grippy. I'm never afraid of losing my footing when carrying heavy items. I have also taken them on European walkabouts without any troubles.

Cute but Not the Same Quality from Keen

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10M

I have Toyah's and the Presidio looked to be a good alternate. They are a cute style and alternate to tennis shoes. However there is just not enough arch support as in other older Keen shoes of this same style. Your foot rolls inward at the ankle. My Asics tennis shoes have more stability and support than these.
Good if you don't need the extra support. The foam foot bed is just not as comfortable as the leather foot bed in the Toyah's either.

Perfect shoe

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

Got these for my mom who suffers from plantar fasciitis and she loves them! She needed a shoe that was comfortable around town and when shes traveling the world. These have easily become her go to shoe and they look great! If your looking for shoes look no further. The word on the streets is true. These shoes are where its at for comfort and function! Sized up a half size

Helps foot pain

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

Bought these for my mother who cuts hair for work (on her feet all day). She was constantly having foot pain. With these, I don't hear her say a word about her feet. That's a good sign. Bought her half size smaller than she thought she wore. Felt they were slightly wide, but she does have narrow feet to begin with.

Roomy all day comfort on your grounds and garden. Also fantastic for vacation even if you sleep in all day.

Very nice

  • Fit: True to size

These shoes help my wife get around at work and allow her feet to stay comfortable throughout the whole day. If you want protection, along with comfort I would recommend these to anyone that has to be on their feet for an extended amount of time.

Look out for the Slate Black!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I needed to return my order because I thought I had ordered a pair of these in black. Unfortunately, I ordered the "Slate Black", which is pretty much a standard brown. Not sure how Keen came up with this color SKU, but it's very confusing.

Lot's of room for your toes - they are not crowded at all. I always buy my shoes 1/2 size bigger and add my own insoles inside. (leave the ones that come with the shoe in) My feet/back are never tired - I work 8 to 10 hour sifts.

Thank you!

Slate Black=Brown

    Just an FYI Slate not BLACK! I mistakenly ordered the slate black expecting a nice new pair of cute black shoes and instead recieved a nice new pair of brown ones. Dont get me wrong they are cute, but I need black ones not brown. So I in turn had to send back the "Slate Black" ones to exchange for "Black" ones. Screwy name choice Keen. The worst thing is that I had to pay 12.99 shipping at the UPS store to send them back, which I guess is okay because they were on sale....but still frustrating. I still love the shoes and love backcountry! :) Just a heads up for all who order!

    Keen Presidio Shitke

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a slight narrow foot. I purchase med width & put inserts or wear thick socks to adjust the width. I wore them on my vacation when I needed a comfortable pair of shoes, I used hiking socks or heavy socks to compensate These shoes look much better than tennis shoes but feel just as comfortable.

    Do these shoes have removable insoles? I...

    Do these shoes have removable insoles? I wear orthotics and need room for them.

    Hey Lisa,

    Yes they do, almost all KEEN insoles come out, especially in the casual closed up shoes.


    Mom loves em'

      Got these as a gift for my mother. She has a hard time finding comfortable shoes that she can stand/walk in all day. These fit the mold and she loves them. She likes the way they look and more importantly she says they are extremely comfortable. Thanks to these Keen's I was able to buy my mothers love for another year.

      Fantastic Shoe!!

        Got these shoes for decision EVER! They are sooooo, I could seriously sleep in these...not that I'd want to, but I'm trying to tell you how comfy they are! Also, they tend to run a tad small...I got a half size bigger than I usually do, and they fit wonderfully! Also, I have a very wide foot and have had problems with bunions on the past...these are GREAT!!! No pain, whatsoever...SO cOMFYYYY!!! Oh wait, did I tell you how much I love these shoes???

        Best shoe ever!

          I LOVE this shoe! I have worn these almost daily for 2 years to work and everywhere else, and I estimate they have another year left in them. They are supreme quality in sole and leather upper, even the laces have held up! They fit and feel great, and I think I have average shaped and sized feet (9 regular). I highly recommend this shoe, and Keen in general, to anyone who will listen.

          I completely agree - they are the best - I have a pair of blue, grey and black . Hold up great for work and I would buy them again and again.
