The stiching came out on the side of the shoe around the Keen logo while we were on vacation. It didn't affect the shoe itself so my husband wore it anyway. I bought the shoes specifically for our vacation to Florida, Disney, etc. He had worn them less than 20 hours total when he noticed the stitching coming unravelled. I returned them but will most likely order another pair, hoping that the poor workmanship was just a fluke. My son and I both have Keens that we wore and had no problem with ours. They were pretty comfortable overall, although they wore blisters on my son's feet after 2 days at Disney World. I thought the fact that you can loosen these came in handy; after walking for hours your feet can get pretty swollen and it was a relief to be able to adjust the tightness.

I bought these for my husband. We love Keen because they make many styles in large sizes (14-15). The sizing was the same as other Keen shoes. It did take a little time to wear in the shoes.

Bought these on sale to complement my older leather pair. These are great sandals. Quality might be slightly reduced compared to the older ones.

I bought these in a size 15 for may very tall 12 year old son. He loves them! They are very comfortable. My only complaint is that some of the stitching is coming loose on that piece that comes up from the ankle with the Keen logo on it, but I think that he is just very rough on all his shoes.

I usually wear a 13. Got the 12 to ensure a good fit when in the water.

This was the first time that I ordered a pair of footwear online, and the whole process was seamless. The build quality of the sandals/slippers is extremely rugged and just what I expected from such a product. It did not look as good on my foot as I had expected, but I guess that's a bit of a personal preference. All in all, a pretty good, rugged product for outdoor activities. Good support for the foot. Only issue was that the back strap cut into my foot due to repeated rubbing.

I don't usually submit reviews, but I have to raise one comment about an unusual feature of this shoe. I have several other sandals mostly from ECCO and Keen, but this is the only pair that stink! Even though the insoles claim to be low odor, there is a very pungent smell with these after wearing for just a couple hours.

A very good water shoe that is fairly comfortable walking dry land. Drains easily. Only two issues - little pebbles will get in between your sole and the shoe and then you must take of the shoe to shake out the stone. Whether wet or dry the shoe is a bit hard to get on do to the non-elasticity of the back strap. But worth the price!

I have been a Keen customer for years, I have bought shoes for hiking and another that I have backpacked the world with for 6 months, never failed me they are true to comfort, size and durability. These are my first sandals though and I have to say I love them. My girlfriend have had the same ones for years and wears them outdoors all the time, I have used them twice so far and in terms of comfort they are an A plus. I have to tell you if they are durable in a couple of years, much recommended if you want something light and comfy and waterproof to wear.

Brands I'd also recommend: none

I enjoyed the H2's a lot for the first few months of ownership. I took them on a cruise, did lots of trekking through beaches, sand, forest trails, malls, puddles, streets, baseball fields, you name it: These babies never faltered. Fast forward 6 months later and I'm a feeling a little bummed out about them. I still think they fit great, look fairly good and are super functional, but I've noticed that they trap any and all odor from my feet. Even after several washes both by hand and by machine, I can't get rid of that nasty stench. Now, before you move to the next review, hear me out. I'm not going to suggest my feet smell like roses; I have normal feet just like you and that guy right over there, yeah, that guy. But...I've never had foot odor in my life, outside of the occasional basketball game or heavy work day. Rarely do I smell my feet, or does anyone complain about my shoes or socks smelling, ever. However, with the H2's, I can't shake the smell. They have somehow trapped the odor from my feet for good, no matter how many times I've washed them. So, unfortunately, my H2 crop dusters are sitting out on my patio now, banished from the house, wafting in the breeze and causing animals from near and far to think twice about hanging around my house. My advice: wash your Keens frequently or you might be surprised to find that your lovely feet...reek! Good luck, happy walking and may pleasant aromas fill your nasal cavities with each comfy step in your killa' Keens! Buying from Zappos was possibly the best online shopping experience I have ever had.

Very comfortable sandals with great toe protection. Very good looking as well. They even have reflective stitching sewn in. I measure a 12 wide, and the 13 D fits me well, so I would say they run a bit small but wide. The only issue I have is that stitching on inside ankle panel of both shoes came apart after one weekend of hiking. This was with a brand new pair, only 2 weeks old.

I'm not one to write reviews, however, this sandal is, in my opinion, very good, especially with respect to quality and appearance. I normally wear a size 10 Medium to Wide street shoe. Bought this to wear without socks. Forefoot appears wide in appearance, however my toes were not cramped at all. Very attractive color combination. My only complaints are two and would have liked more 'air space openings' and sole is sort of 'stiff' and does not flex easily. It's sort of 'clunks' when I walk. But these are new and have not walked anywhere except inside. When broken in, maybe they will be different. Quality appears very good.

These are very comfortable! I wanted something that was more comfortable than a flip-flop for longer distance walks.

I got these for my husband to replace his Tevas. He likes the Keens. Great for playing around in the river. However, they obviously don't dry as fast as Tevas. He also bikes to work in the keens and likes the protection over the toe.

These are my new warm weather favorites. They are all purpose. I can use them for hiking, running errands, and even to the pool. They are comfortable and have more support than flip flops or regular sandals. The only minor negative is that if wet, the material is not instantly drying. These can certainly get wet but do not expect them to dry as fast as your bathing suit. The plus, I understand, is that you can throw them in the drier. I have not done this yet. I recommend these highly and would certainly purchase them again.

Great fit and very good arch support for footwear of this kind. The only feature I don't like is the texture of material in contact with my feet. It's a bit irritating if I wear them for a long period of time.

Great shoe. The only area of improvement I see is the durability of the stitching, especially in the heel area. I also think they should improve the gluing of the sole, which tends to come apart after a few months.

Solid, stable sandal with great foot support. As always with Keen shoes, the wide toe area makes it very comfortable. Openings are wider than the classic Newport which makes it airier for the summer. Top is made of nylon in H2 vs leather in the classic. This makes it quicker drying and lighter overall. Cons: Sand will mound up in the toe area since there are no holes to escape. Recommend you try the classic Newport and the H2 before you purchase. I found the classic's food bed completely incompatible with my feet, but the H2 was perfect.

I wore these sandals evryday for two and half weeks in the jungles of Cambodia. They got soaked and dirty but always protected my feet. The only down side was I got a blister under the top strap. I may have been from loosening them all the way to deal with a hot spot.

I was looking for a shoe that I could use over the summer instead of a flip flop. It is a great looking shoe and I actually wear them with jeans. I have also worn them in the water and they held up well. My only complaint is that they are a bit uncomfortable around my little toe and not that soft on my feet. I am relatively picky about shoes, although I have suffered from Plantar so it could just be me, I do have high arches if that matters. I wouldn not buy them again but I love the style so I would give the Inov8s a try. On a side note, I love Zappos. They have become my favorite site and when possible, I buy from them. Their customer service is really world class.

Not surprisingly, the nylon material of this style is less flexible and forgiving than leather styles, but I expect it to hold up better when wet.

Great shoe that serves its overall purpose, to get wet. It could be a bit more comfortable; my feet would get sore after a day of wear.
