Keen are my favorite shoes. So comfy and these did not disappoint. Very lightweight, they look sassy and I got lots of compliments. As with every pair of Keens I've ever owned, I ordered up a half size and they fit just right. I usually wear a 7, which in the Land of Keen means I need a 7.5. I ... Read More

    Picked these for sentimental reason -- recently lost 10.5 yr old brindle boxer dog, call name "Keen." Goofy, but felt I was supposed to order these shoes. They fit well & I find them comfortable for errands, but I need a LOT more padding for pounding pavement. The zig-zaggy lacing looks funky but works well to keep shoes snug w/o having to be super-tight. Crippled myself pushing a disabled teen in a charity run while wearing my very worn out, but only, pair of running shoes. Tried on DOZENS of shoes locally & everything hurt. In desperation, ordered 6 pairs from STP -- kept 3 pairs. Extravagant, yes, but I sooooo needed new shoes & figured I might stay sound longer if I could rotate types. I'm 5' 10" & 122 lbs & never had any foot trouble before. Ordered half size larger & use the purple Dr Scholl's arch supports in these.

    Would buy these again. Light and airy on my feet. I really don't like tennis shoes for casual wearing around but these are excellent!

    If you are looking for a barefoot runner that has a typical shoe- like make just with a lower heel to toe drop, then this might be the shoe for you. I personally was looking for something more minimalist with less fabric and a more barefoot feel than this shoe offered me so I sent it back. It looked too much like a court sneaker to me personally. Also, the colors didn't suite my preferences. But I could see it being a great shoe for so many people. It felt comfortable, breathable, and light.

    I love Keen.....I have a pair of oxford style casual I wear to work, and a pair of sandals.....this is my first Keen sneaker (as well as first minimalist) and I love them! Honestly from the first time I wore them, they almost felt like a pair of house shoes. They have great traction. The curved laces really do feel great...and my aqua/grey pair look pretty cute and not too funky-bright. They are minimalist, so do not expect tons of support, but there is still some arch support there. I do tend to get a bit of foot pain after walking a long way in them but it is known that this can happen because our feet have been trained to walk in cushions. But I do love how flexible and comfy they blistering or rubbing spots.

    The toe box is a big pointed, and not the typical rounded Keen look.....but it hasn't been a problem for me and I think it's cute. I always order a half size up in Keens...regular size is 9.5 so my Keen size is 10. I would absolutely buy these again.

    Takes getting used to the slender structure of the sole. Able to do daily route withour discomfort. Love the look too. Definitely minimalist.

  • “Are these okay to use in the gym, as in cardio training?”
    Asked by Golds gym queen from Los Angeles on 4/10/2014 7:53:28 AM
    • I would believe so. My girlfriend hasn't used them for cardio training but wears them on a daily basis. They breathe very easily and have enough cushion for support.

    • Yes, you can use these in the gym if you choose to.

About Keen

Keen shoes have been helping feet find adventure since 2003, and it all began with the signature KEEN.PROTECT toe bumper. It might seem strange to build a footwear company around a feature, but that iconic toe bumper is more than just a style add-on. It’s what allows Keen sandals to hit the trails and provide the best toe protection possible. In fact, Keen was one of the first footwear companies to make closed-toed hiking sandals. Over the years, the product selection has continued to grow and now includes Keen hiking boots, trail shoes, cycling shoes, socks, clothing and bags. The brand is also actively involved in land and water conservation projects in the US, Canada, Europe and Japan.
