KEENVenice Sandal - Women's

Wear the KEEN Women's Venice Sandals when you need the protection of a shoe and comfort of a flip-flop.

KEEN Women's Venice Sandals provide the comfort and protection of a shoe while keeping your foot well ventilated on hot summer days. Though they're designed for casual wear, the Venice Sandals' waterproof leather uppers stay supple and don't crack as they dry after an impromptu dip in the lake. KEEN gave these super-comfy sandals an AEGIS microbe treatment to hold down the funk factor and ensure they smell fresh every day of the summer.

Durable Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Purchased two pairs of these sandals as they're my go to water shoe! Very solid design and they dry quickly!!

look pretty good and feel it too

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

There are a nice change from hiking in a boot. The strong soles are as durable as any hiking show and handle well on the trail. Their look goes well with all kinds of outfits too!

Water wear!

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

Good for the water! Sturdy and well made.

Heavy, awkward

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8.5

The sandals feel heavy and stiff. Very stiff. Soles do not bend at all. The picture makes them look nicer, they look kind of uglyish. I would not wear them without socks - because of the stiffness.
The size seems to be true.

comfortable but warm

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

These are sturdy and comfortable sandals however they feel really warm - a lot "hotter" than Birkenstock.

Keen Venice sandal

    First- comfort. My foot is wider than most. So I usually need to buy 7, but they are a little too long. Not with Keen Venice. I can wear a 6.5 comfortably- even with socks! I wear them hiking,strolling through creeks and daily town wear. Great with or without socks. Another plus is they can go through the washing machine when needed. They have been treated with anti microbial to help keep them odor free. Many colors and 2 fabrics to choose from. I love 'em. I think I'll rely on these this Brand for the rest of my life! Thank You Keen!

    Nice ... but a little to hot for me!

      They are really nice sandals; however, I found them to be just too hot for me. I tried them several times before sending back. Really, really wanted them to work as I loved the look, but for the kind of money invested I really needed to be able to use the sandals more. Thanks for the no hassle return!

      Pretty great and pretty useful!

        I bought these shoes to wade in streams as well as a summer hiking boot to let my toes breathe in the summer. As water shoes, they're ok, but I had hoped the material would be a bit more breathable. I find that after I am done in the water, it takes forever for the material to dry leaving my feet a bit swampy and prune-y for the rest of the day until I take my feet out of them and let me feet air dry. After I air dry my feet, they're ok.
        As for summer hiking boots, they're great! The straps are really helpful if you are running around or if you are just walking. Tightening the straps also really helps with stability while wading through rocks in a stream.
        As for the size, my feet are only slightly on the wider side. I purchased the normal 6.5 that I usually buy with other shoes and they fit well. It felt a little loose at first, but adjusting the straps really helps with that!

        Like but I want to Love

          I really want to LOVE these shoes but I did have to return my first pair after a one-week hike in/around Lake Michigan and Lake Superior trails.

          The sole of the shoe and the foot bed separated due to a poor glue product. I'm on my second pair after a painless exchange at, but I have yet to wear the new pair. Fingers crossed that they hold up better.

          In action, they felt great, they helped me grip some pretty slippery rocks and were otherwise fabulous. I apologize KEEN, but I can't give these a higher rating.

          Get the size you wear, not .5 size up

            I followed the keen website's advice to get a .5 size up, that they run small. But i found that they were just a half size to big. If you want the ball of your foot and the heel in the right place buy your size. They are fairly wide, and stretch a bit. My size (6) not 6.5 fits very comfortably. Had to return the first pair, but back country was great and very quick (even the free shipping) Love my shoes, wear them every day. Only problem, my feel seem to smell a bit, something about sandals make my feet smell. But, I can waer the shoes through the day, no feet problems.

            Great Keen Sandals!

              I am simply in love with Keen technical sandals. I have a pair of the Venice h2 model ( and I decided to try this model in a different color. Definitely Keen rules! They provide a great looking along with great protection. Super comfy and fresh. True to size for me!

              I have bunions on both feet & was wondering...

              I have bunions on both feet & was wondering about the straps rubbing & irritating those. Does anyone have this issue?

              My wife's rub a little. It's not overly bad for her feet, but it would probably be worse for someone with bunions.

              The straps on these come over higher on the foot where most bunions are so it covers it and doesn't cut into it. Guess every foot is different, but these work great for me. I'm ordering my second pair.

              Two Thumbs Up!

                This is my 3rd pair of Keen shoes. They by far are my favorite brand, they hold up well, give great support and protection.

                I have received many compliments on the Venice Sandals. I have traveled quite a lot this summer and everywhere I went ladies were asking me about my shoes.

                There is no break in time needed, take them out of the box and put them on and go! I find all Keens to be true to size, I wear a 7, and a 7 is what I get!

                Fantastic KEEN Venice Sandal

                  Keen sandals are perfect, super comfortable and they look very nice, specially these ones that are made with leather so they can be used as casual sandals as well. I ordered them in size 8.5 which is usually the size I wear in Keen and they fit perfectly. I totally recommend these.

                  Keen Venice Sandal

                    This is my second pair because these sandals are the best! Love the comfort, support and quality that Keen sandals provide. I can wear these all day and still have "happy" feet by the evening.

                    Great Vacation Shoe

                      Just finished a two week vacation with lots of walking and this was the perfect shoe. My feet felt just as good at the end of the day as they did at the beginning.

                      Great hikers

                        Very comfortable and look great.

                        Why does backcountry not carry Keen in...

                        Why does backcountry not carry Keen in Women's 10 1/2? I know they make them?

                        they may order them for you if you contact backcountry directly, but when items are on sale, sizes are limited to what they have in stock. if the new year's model is coming out and that's why these are on sale, the new ones wont be on sale, and they probably wont order the the old ones for you...such is the world of sales...happy hunting.

                        I love the H2 look-I'm afraid to order on...

                        I love the H2 look-I'm afraid to order on line cause they may be too narroow. I have a wider width than B. Is there a better fit for better fit for me, even if it's a boy's shoe?

                        Best Answer

                        Actually my foot is wide also, and I have found that Keen is one of the better shoes for wider feet, especially women. But hey, Backcountry has the best return policy ever.
