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.

Had a pair of keens before these that I was happy with, however this pair only lasted 8 months and the sole fell off. Also the most uncomfortable shoes I've owned in recent memory, cut off the circulation in my foot. Will not be buying another pair of Keens...

These shoes were great; however, after 7 months of occasional wear, the right shoe now has an annoying squeak when no matter the surface. I wear these shoes once or twice a week, and the only time that they don't squeak is when I walk in grass. They squeak on asphalt, concrete, hardwood, and industrial non-slip flooring. I am debating on returning these shoes because I can no longer stand to wear them.

Zappos delivers! You place your order and it is on your door step in 2 days, and if it doesn't please you send it back and shipping is free both ways...got to love that. I have placed many Keen orders via Zappos and have never been disappointed. I only wear Keen's as the toe box is wide to help with my custom orthotics.

I'd also recommend: I am partial to Keens!

I have a wide foot (bunion), these shoes were perfect. I actually ordered 1 size smaller than my regular shoe size due to the extra large toe box. These shoes are extremely comfortable, suitable for work or casual, and are rugged enough to last about 10 years. Highly recommended! Customer Service was absolutely legendary.

My second pair of these. The first lasted several years, and I came back to them because they are probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. They seem to be running large now, though. This time, I went down a full size from my usual in other brands to get the right fit.
