These are by far my favorite and best safety toe shows I have gotten. I have been a Timberland guy for about 6 years now and transitioned from the Mudsill (Steel) to the Wildcard having bought 2 pairs of each before switching. If it works, why change it? I ordered all off Zappos until recently. I was on Amazon and purchased my most recent Wilcard in the exact style, etc.. When I tried them on at home I realized they were too small and I couldn't stretch them. I returned them at my cost and found that the retailer had taken $10 on the other end out for their shipping. $22 out of my pocket and no boots to show. Never again. I bought the Albany from Keen and wished I had done so years ago. They feel as good as the Newport sandals from Keen. Good sized composite toe box, anti slip sole and comfortable, albeit a little wide, stance. I have not had to put an aftermarket insole in these. They appear to be ultra durable and stylish to boot. Pun intended. Absolutely worth the money and if they weren't, Zappos pays shipping both ways. I like these enough that I will be getting a pair of hikers for after hour's use.

Overall great shoes! The composite toe isn't too heavy, and the comfort level of the shoe is great. I did get new insoles, though I don't think the originals would be too bad for a while. My only complaint is that they aren't as slip resistant as I thought they would be, but they do hold up well in wet situations. Overall great shoes and I'll probably be buying a pair of Keens for other purposes as well.

Excellent safety shoe. If you have a wider foot, get the wider shoe! I originally purchased the normal width and the composite toe cut into the side of my foot. I then purchased the wide size and it fits and feels great. Great traction on slippery surfaces and the trademark Keen toe bumper provides a durable surface to extend the life of the shoe.

This is the first pair of Keens that I have ever worn. Of any type. My family has worn them for years but I am poor. These are for work so I did not have to pay. They fit like a glove and there was plenty of toe room in the toe box. The toe box is really wide. Especially for a 2E. I was buying New Balance (Durham) work shoes in size 11½ 4E until two years ago when I had to get a pair quickly and got a pair of Carolinas, nothing special. This week I went to look at Keens. The Lexington and the Albany were my two real choices. I had to get composite toe and I like shoes, not high boots. The Albany feels very sturdy. They are super comfortable. I will keep these.

Very good shoe, absolutely no rubbing, lots of toe room. I wear a 12 in most shoes, but I feel a 11.5 would have been perfect. First time wearing them, I could push my foot all the way forward and fit a finger behind my heal with ease. Something I can do with all my shoes, but once they're broken in, so I'd say a half size smaller will be how to go. Haven't tested out the waterproof material yet, but all my friends swear by these shoes.
