I work 12 hour shifts as a nurse in a very busy unit. Keens are the only shoes I can wear. I have tried Danskos, crocs, Josef Siebel, etc., and then I found Keens. I always go up 1/2 size. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 is because of the scuffing, but perhaps I am harder on my shoes than I realize unlocking beds, and workstations with my shoes.

I bought these and a pair of the Keen Shelby. The PTCs don't fit my foot as well because my heels slip, even with tongue pads. However, walking in these makes plantar fasciitis almost pain free, though there is more pain at the end of a long walk than at the beginning. I don't think that is the fault of the shoe. These are absolute heaven to walk in compared to other shoes, sneakers, and boots--even Keens--despite the slippage. I have not developed blisters from the slippage, either. They are narrower at the front of the foot than the Shelby, which has more of a duck-foot cut and narrower heal (those may be too loose at the toe, but I like the room). The Shelby doesn't cushion the plantar fasciitis as well, and are more painful to walk in, though under normal circumstances would be very comfortable. Both look cute with pants. Because of my foot problems, I am regretting a little returning the second pair of blue PTCs for the black Shelbys, though I will keep both. I wear my thickest hiking socks with both.
