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.

Great shoes for people with wide feet - wide through the mid-sole, very roomy toe-box and adequate arch support. For people with abnormally high arches you may want to undo the laces from the top-most set of eyelets for more freedom in movement. I was also very surprised by the quality of the leather upper of this shoe. Very supple! Wears well with most casual pants (jeans, cargos, cords, etc). Overall a great casual shoe!

I'd also recommend: patagonia, columbia, merrill

These were my first Zappos purchase and it was a good experience. The shoes were on sale and I ordered three pairs to try on. There was no fuss on returning the other two and the return was processed quickly. I bought these to have good quality walking shoes that were not sneakers. I needed something to handle more casual days at work, some outdoor activity, and travel. These fit the bill. I am flat footed and arch support has not been a problem. There was a little bit of break in time and they are not the most flexible pair of shoes that I have had, but there were no problems getting them on or off. When I first got them they felt too small and my feet would ache after a day. It turned out that the lacing was just too tight out of the box. Once I did a big loosing of the laces the problem went away. They are holding up great for work and outdoors. I just did a last minute cabin trip with some light hiking. For personal travel I am hoping these can be the only shoes that I need to take, as long as I do not need to get dressed up.

I absolutely love my Austins! They are the best shoes that I have ever worn. They were a little tight out of the box but I just had to loosen the laces a bit. After that they were perfect! These are very comfortable and are built to last. I have worn them everyday for nine months now and they are still in great condition. My last pair of Sketchers fell apart and had no sole left after just two months. My next pair of shoes will definitely be Keen! Now I just have to work on converting my family and friends to be Keen fans!

Awesome shoes for those of us with wide feet. The boxy toe is really comfortable for walking. I wear these almost every day, and they look almost brand new after 6 months. I can also wear them with jeans, khakis, whatever. I'm currently on my third pair of Austins. I'm really hard on shoes, and they usually last me about a year. That kind of durability is unheard of with other shoes I've worn. On the bad side, they're not substantial enough to wear much in the winter, and are particularly ill-suited for snowy walks.

I'd also recommend: Clarks
