Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sole is melting - poor quality! I bought these Keen sandals excited for a new pair this summer. The first few days of wear they appeared sticky on the bottom. I didn't think much of it but upon closer look I now see that parts of the bottom of each sole look like they have melted or quickly broken apart. Something isn't right about the sole. They seem cheap on the bottom but are cute on the top. I wouldn't buy them again and wish I had something better made especially for what I paid. Expect more from Keen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable Really happy with my purchase. I have a wider foot however the uppers stretch to accommodate without squeezing the foot. The footbed is soft, supportive and comfortable. My only concern was that the strap might rub the big toe, but it didn’t. The sole is thick enough to shield your foot from stones, etc. Not sure I would wear it for climbing up mountains, but for most walking scenarios on and off road this sandal would be sufficient. Love the different colours, I bought two pairs, one rust and one blue so go with most outfits. I purchased the 6.5. US 9 and they fit perfectly. Time will tell how long they last.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK shoe for extra wide feet My biggest concern was whether this shoe would fit my extra wide feet and whether they would stretch. They have a level of stretch that makes them OK but they could be stretchier. If you have wide feet, you know what I’m talking about. Also, the shoes “fart” when I walk and the back strap is lose but I can still walk in them and not feel uncomfortable. They feel good, look cute and are comfy. I’m usually an 8.5 but ordered a 9 to fit the wide feet, that’s probably why the back strap is too big for me. When I wear them they look like they’re just my size. Not too big not too small. Overall, it’s a good shoe but if I had to do it over I probably would order the other sandals with no back strap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lisa I have very bad feed….bunion, hammer toe, surgery on one foot. These sandals with elastic straps looked like the answer to my feet’s prayers! But alas, the strap that goes across the ball of the foot is NOT elasticized, and I could not get my foot through the front of the sandal. The other two elasticized straps were perfect. Why didn’t you use the same elastic fabric across the ball of the foot? The pink ones are even worse. The front strap is inflexible and tighter. Very cute sandals, which would have worked, had all three straps been made of the same stretch fabric. I have to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GGESQ I have a very long, slender foot. Some Keen shoes fit great in a 10, other shoes the 10 is too short. When I size up to 10.5 the shoe is often so roomy I can barely keep them on my feet. Bought a 10 pair of these in green last summer. I loved them, but after a few hours my feet hurt. I decided it was the arch placement. So I bought a pair in pink last month. I’ve only worn them once, but it was for 8-10 hours. Never had a problem. It would be lovely in this era of online shopping if one company’s sizing were consistent. P.S. I & many others are anxiously awaiting Spring 2021 Coronados!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bottom of shoes looks melted I got these this summer in preparation for a vacation trip. I noticed the bottom felt a little sticky at times upon first initial days wearing them but didn't think too much of it. Upon closer look, it appears parts of the bottom on both shoes have melted or broken down very quickly. It is definitely noticeable that somethings isn't right. They look great on the top but you can tell something isn't right with the bottom of the sole (again, they feel sticky or something where they appear melted). I wouldn't recommend and am disappointed but have always loved my other Keen purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful fit and comfort, but please make with fabric insole! I can tell immediately that I will LOVE these sandals. I am always on the lookout for non-leather comfy shoes. The fabric of the straps is perfect for me because it's not too tight and so comfy. This is the kind of sandal I want for a day of city walking. The only issue I have is the the insole---it's a plastic material and it does make feet sweaty, but the main problem for me is the friction of the plastic against the bottom of my foot. I am fine with fabric insoles, but plastic or other non-fabric material can cause discomfort when wearing all day. If Keen makes this sandal with a cloth insole, I would be tempted to buy all the colors! Even with the insole I don't like, I am going to order a second color :) Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I love Keens and my first pair of Whisper was awesome. They lasted years, and when I replaced them well, they felt different. They were narrower and did not have the same arch support (even though the description is the same arch support). When I saw this sandal I got excited since it was open toed. I received them today. Size is good, but darn, where is the arch support? Even looking from the side it almost looks "flat" -- I rely on my Keen for long dog walks, etc., and I don't think these will work. They are comfy, just not supportive enough. Guess I need to use my Chacos!!! You must have new manufacturers -- go back to your original one. They were the best! I would recommend for comfort, generally, just not support.
