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.

I have been wearing a pair of Austin's in a brown nubuck for 1.5 years and my feet love them! They are a little frumpy looking and go best with jeans. My new pair are the black full grain leather. These required more break in time, but they look much dressier. The full grain leather also seems to offer more support. They are a great shoe!

I'd also recommend: Naot

After a few weeks, a dent formed in the leather over the toes. It's annoying and won't go away. The heel is too high for my taste, and makes my heels ache. But it's nice to find a shoe made to fit the shape of a human foot.

This was my 4th pair of Keen Austins. These ones felt significantly larger than the previous 3 pairs I wore out. Last week, upon my 3rd time wearing these, the sole completely fell off. Inexcusable, and I will never buy Keens again, as each generation seems worse (most notable when the soles started to be glued, rather than stitched when I bought my second pair). Their quality has gone down significantly the past few years. This is the 4th time I've had to return Keens, and this issue was a major inconvenience.

The tongue of the shoes are about an inch too short and when I walk they grind into the top of my foot just below the ankle joint. Very uncomfortable! Other than that I liked the shoe.

Liked the color combo. At first all was fine. Then became apparent that these shoes 1) did not breathe, and 2) this pair squeaked, a lot! Have never had this issue with Keens before. Getting a refund on this pair.
