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 tough to fit feet I wear custom orthotics. I wore another brand for 15 years and they discontinued them - go figure. I am glad that they did because after I tired a New Balance pair they hurt for a year and finally I went back to the store three times and the last time I got the Austin Keens and I am so happy that I did. I have a wide toe area and a narrow heel and these can be adjusted to be not too tight in the toes but snug around your foot with the laces. There is lots of room in the toes so they are nice unlike any that I have tried. I am sold. I cannot wait to buy another pair or two. Thanks to New Balance for not making my shoes anymore and forcing me to find something better.

My husband loves these shoes and he is very picky as to what he puts on his feet. I knew this Keen shoe was the right one and I love, love the brown color! Best shoes in his closet.

As with all Keen products, these fit great and have a more dressy look. I wasn't sure about the angled heel, but so far it has not been an issue. Very satisfied with the look and comfort.

I just received my Midnight Navy / Chestnut Keen Austin shoes, and they are perfect to wear with bluejeans and also around many of our Outdoor water-view activities. I am not wondering if these shoes will offer comfort or if they will prove to be durable as this is my forth pair of Keen Austin shoes over the years. I really wanted to try the Finlay Model, but could not resist these Navy Blue pair. Maybe the Finlay will still work it's way into a future purchase as I like everything I read about those as well. Prior to making a major move to Keen Sandals and Shoes, I was a Mephisto and Ecco buyer nearly exclusively. I now have everything from the outstanding Keen Newport through the Keen Yogi Style and couldn't be more pleased with this Brand. My only poor experience thus far were a pair of the Ontario Model which had a single stitching across the toe leather which gave out my first day of use. That one I don't recommend. The Keen Austin is a great shoe.

I'd also recommend: I like Sperry Top-Siders around Boating, and Asics for Running

I am now on my 3rd pair of the Keen Austin. These are great shoes for either work (I work them hard and they last) or business. Unlike many other shoe makers, Keen has decided to have the shoe's shape actually match that of one's foot; brilliant! The result is a very comfortable shoe that can be worn all day in comfort.
