I was initially pleased with the appearance and comfort of this shoe, but after wearing them for a few months I am very disappointed with the quality of this product. The smooth leather toe guard scuffs very easily and looks terrible. The suede(?) upper attracts dirt and grime like a magnet. The rubber toe bumper is peeling away from the upper. The stitching between the suede and the smooth leather pulled out and I now have a hole that my pinky toe winks through. I am not hard on shoes and rarely wore them in inclement weather, but they are literally falling apart. I have other Keens that served me well, but I may stay away from the brand after this experience.

I bought these shoes for casual walking around and something to easily slip off and on while going through TSA lines at the airport. I found them comfortable enough, but the heels are a bit loose and my feet were slipping in and out while walking around. It felt like I was walking around in "flop-flop" type sandals. So, alas, I had to send them back.

These shoes fit well. I have alway bought Boston slip ons by Keen and thought these were a little similar, but different enough for something newer. The fit was just a little more narrow than the Boston, but easy to break in. Great shoe by Keen, as always.

I have wide feet and a hard-to-fit arch. Lately I have come to swear by Keen's. I have a half dozen pair and the sizing has always been consistent. I've always been able to order my size and know they would fit without worry.
With this pair for the first time I was disappointed -- somewhat. The fit is a little narrow in the arch and tight across the ball of the foot. In hindsight I should have ordered a half size up.
That being said, these shoes are easy to slip on, look great with a pair of jeans, and feature a cushier sole than my other Keen's. I've been wearing these occasionally for a few weeks, and I've decided that even if I need to go sockless these are worth it. That will be easier to adhere to if they stretch a bit as they break in.

Yes, Keen. The brand all the cool kids are wearing. Even after my three pairs fell apart prematurely, I couldn't stay away from the "look" and fell for this bargain basement Dillon model.
Imagine my delight opening up that green/crunchy packaging and gazing upon a brand new pair of shoes...
Imagine my nihilistic reaction when, OF COURSE, each shoe was defective. In this case, the outer edges of the footbed/sole are higher than the inner, resulting in pronation that was almost instantly borderline-painful.
I'm like, what the...seriously? Did I miss something? Did the description say, "Perfect for sufferers of pronation?" Were these "factory seconds?" Nope. Looks like at least one other reviewer had the identical experience with one of his pair, so I knew Keen was at least capable of making one proper Dillon shoe.
Then I looked at them from behind and sure enough, they are canted inward extremely. Totally defective, even at a glance. Which makes the fancy Keen QC label inside the box pretty ironic.
Imagine my relief when I saw that STP includes a return-postage sticker! Imagine my joy when I saw that I would be CHARGED $6.95 for the privilege of returning a defective item I'd already paid $7.95 in shipping! STP customer service told me to return the shoes with a letter and their "research department" (I'm picturing a clean room, lab coats, lasers, and geiger counters) will determine my fate regarding shipping charges.
Bottom line: defective shoes. Too bad. I like the look. We shall see how STP handles sticky matters like brokering bunk brands. As always with wearables bought online, caveat emptor. OTOH, who dares wins.

This is my first pair of Keen shoes. They take a bit of getting use to as they fit differently than my Merill shoes. More for warmer weather as they are not insulated. They feel OK and run atleast 1/2 to 1 size large.
