There is something wrong with me. I've never been into clothes or shoes. I usually bought my shoes at JL Coombs in Freeport from the discount rack. Blemished, seconds, whatever. Had a great pair of LL Bean shoes that I resoled and re-soled for a decade. Then my fiancee suggested I get a pair of these hideous looking "Keens". I bought the Austins, black, size 10.5 One year later: I own 5 pairs...I'm turning into the Imelda Marcos of Keens, and I'm a straight guy. I just ordered another pair of sandals, and when the soles started showing wear on my original Austins and they couldn't re-sole them, Keen said I could get another pair. I've never worn anything on my feet so comfortable. I wake up in the morning and I can't wait to put on a pair. How is that for an endorsement?

These were great shoes for everyday use. Two things changed. They stopped stitching the sole to the shoe (starting to use an inferior glue) and the rubber used for the sole wares out in under 6 months. Not worth the money.

First day in: These shoes seem well made and sturdy, with a comfortable footbed, and seem to breathe well so far -- my feet are warm, and no perspiration. The collar or neck at the top of the upper feels a bit hard and uncomfortable, especially at the front, but I imagine this sensation will fade. I can see why some wider-footed reviewers are happy with these shoes -- they are certainly the widest D-width shoes I've ever worn, a bit too wide for me. And at size 9.5, they also feel a tad long. I generally wear 9.5 - 10. Hoping that thick socks will take care of this. As for their look, I'm afraid they fall in the Highly Effective Birth Control category, but I plan to wear them only for pedestrian commuting in bad weather, when wealthy heiresses are not likely to be out and about.

Purchased and wore out a pair of Keen Portsmouths. They were the most comfortable I've ever owned. They were well made, I just wore them out cause they were seldom not on my feet. Could not find them in my size again so tried the Austins, but was disappointed in the comfort. They look to be well made also, but were not comparable in how they felt on my feet. Zappos was very understandable and worked with me to my satisfaction. I will still consider Keens in the future as well as Zappos.

I have bought this same style of shoe three times since 2009. If they ever stop making them, I will be very sad indeed. Comfortable for walking all of the city on vacation and nice enough looking to wear to work. I love this shoe!

Great shoes. First pair I got were defective, but of course Zappos took care of that. Nice and comfortable.

Great shoe. Have been wearing them for a couple years as a casual walk-around shoe. Have to agree with most of the positive reviews....they're great out of the box, and fit a wide foot comfortably. Downside - the durability issue previously noted is a fact. The leather and sole on my recent pairs deteriorates far faster then in pairs past. That doesn't stop me from buying them, though. I can still get a lot of wear out of them before that happens. Have fun out there.

I'd also recommend: New Balance
