i bought these sandals to take on a cruise. They were great. I wore them in sand, water and around the ship. They dried quickly and I got many compliments on their looks. Just wish they had more left in my size.

I bought these shoes for my 13 year old daughter to take to China. I tried to get her to break them in before leaving, but you know kids. Fortunately they were comfortable right out of the box, no rubbing or chafing. Her only complaint was the funky tan line that left her big toe completely white. These are great shoes at a phenomenal price. We also loved the green color, bright but not overwhelming.

The arch is slightly less built up, but aside from that they are almost exactly the same. I own several pairs of various Keen water shoes (various because they've changed names slightly over the years) and these meet the standards of Keen very nicely!

Keen's toe box is generally wider, but these are not as wide as all of them, though it is still roomy.

Keens tend to be a little wider than the average shoe.

lots of toe room but the actual width fits good for me. I think my feet are average width, not thin or fat. But what I like the most about Keen shoes is the toe room, I hate for my toes to get crunched.

I have a med. width foot and these are just right. They are not wide at all.

The suede would break down faster than a shoe with synthetic webbing.

The description lists the questionable upper material as "synthetic" suede, so I would think that would hold up better than the real thing. On various sites, it says "features a water-resistant webbing upper with a mesh lining for quick-dry performance", "Non-marking...outsole" (important for boats, which are often wet), "Hydrophobic mesh lining", "Washable polyester webbing upper with Aegis microbe shieldâ„¢", "Wet - water resistant" and "Recommended for: Beach, Casual". All of these suggest that you can get the shoes wet. Reviewers have noted "I...have very small feet and once wet they do slide around a bit inside the shoe"; but another noted that "They stayed on her feet even when her feet got wet", and a third said "You can get'm wet." I am planning on doing just that.

Note: the description states it is synthetic suede. Should not be as water sensitive as leather suede.
