I ordered this shoe, a Keen Whisper, a Teva Omnium and a Merrell Cambrian Emme. Tried them all on and walked around the house for a while comparing each one. This was the easy winner. The whisper was fine, but a little bulkier, not as attractive. The Merrell was probably the cutest one and comfortable insole, but the straps and mesh over the toes was itchy. Felt awesome with socks but I don't want to wear socks with my sandals! The Omnium was very bulky & just didn't feel good. This Venice H2 felt like I was barefoot, but better. The color goes great with jeans. I've put my summer-shoe-quest on hold because I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing these almost every day. Sending the others back. I have a narrow foot, usually wear an 8 or 8 1/2. The 8s are too small for me in Keens but 8 1/2 is perfect.

ALthough comfortable, these are not good for me. The reason is that little pebbles seem to go through the wider opening in the front that I am constantly having to take them off and shake them out. None of my friends have that issue with the Keens that have fewer larger openings. I bought these before a trip because that is all they had. Looking now for a different kind of Keens.

What a great shoe! Perfect fit with fantastic arch support. The adjustable drawstring thing is great, you can loosen or tighten the heel strap as needed, anklets or barefoot. I usually wear a 6 and this fits perfect. My winter Keens (hiking boot style) still look almost new and I wore them several days a week, warm and comfy. Keen's are a bit spendy but I think these and my winter ones will last me for years, so if you figure cost per wear, they're a smart buy!

This shoe would havebeen marvelous had it been available in my size but the 8 I ordered was just too large! The shoe runs true to size and the blue is a lush royal navyblue. I loved the color. Shoe was not stiff like some of the Keens. Will order again when my size comes in. Would definitely recommend.

Love these shoes. I bought them recently for a trip to St. John where I hiked, kayaked and walked on the beach and these shoes were great. We inadvertently took a 7 mile hike (had to go back the same way...) and I was worried I would be sorry, as they were new, but no blisters! I only had sore feet... which I don't think were from the shoes. They were great to kayak in & walk in the rocky waters and still were grippy climbing rocks even when wet, no slipping and sliding. The reason I gave the style 4 stars was that periodically small pieces of brush or leaves would get in while hiking a dirt trail and I would have to shake them out. Otherwise the toe guard saved my toes, they were comfortable, true to fit, and funky looking enough so that I didn't mind wearing them about town.

Great shoes. Nice arch,good padding. No break in period. Good traction. Wore them on a trip. Knew they'd be easy on and off in security area due to elastic laces. Have another pair in different color combo.

These shoes are great! I have problems with my feet. I bought these for a trip to Cape Verde, wore them every day on rocky roads and on the beach and couldn't be happier (and I usually can't wear shoes 2 days in a row. arthritis in one foot, etc).

Great little shoe for kayaking, hiking, water sports! They offer decent support for hiking (even on wet rocks) and dry fairly quickly so you can go out and do it all the next day.

Great, comfortable sandal for some who has to do a lot of walking and especially during summer time as it allows the foot enough room.

I love these sandals. A passerby stopped me in the streets of Key West to ask what they were! This summer I'll be wearing them in Michigan on our sailboat and on the golf course. They are rugged, comfortable and good llooking. Zappos delivered them quickly to my alternate address in the Keys.

Comfortable from the first time I put them on. I am on my feet at work at a garden center and these are the perfect shoes. They get wet a lot and dry quickly, but never rub. This is my second pair. Had the first ones for three years.

The Keen Venice H2 is a terrific sandal. I have relatively high arches and the sandal provides the right amount of support, and the footbed molds to your foot after a few wears. The strapping is secure but not too tight and is comfortable against my skin. The soles are stiff enough for hours of comfortable walking about town or on a trail. As others state and as I've found with other Keen shoes, do order a half size up. I usually wear a 9.5 and the 10 is just right.

These shoes are amazing! I bought them for a trip to Guatemala and Belize where I hiked very challenging routes every day. They required no breaking in at all. I wore them for a hike into ATM cave in Belize which requires a swim on the way in, lots of rock climbing, and wading through rivers. The grip was great, no slipping in mud or on wet rocks. The size was slightly small...I am usually a 10.5 but in Keens an 11 is better. Get these shoes! On top of everything else, they are dry quickly even in the rain forest after a full day of being soaking wet.

I love these shoes! I am not a shoe person. My previous favorite shoes were Birkenstocks. I actually like these better, because the toes and ball of by foot feel open. These shoes don't pinch anywhere, and I can run in them. Unlike the Birkenstocks, I can throw these in the washing machine when they get dirty! I bought 3 pairs in different colors.

So cool, so comfy - Great sandals. If you are familiar with Keens, these are a bit less clownish looking than the Newport sandals. They are very comfortable, and well made. I wear a 6, and I ordered a 6.5, which fit perfectly. Like other Keens, they run a little small.

Funky and Functional - Love the funky look of these sandals. Mine are purple and I found that they will go with lots of my spring/summer clothes. Good for work and play. Didn't wear mine to Jazz Fest in New Orleans, but saw lots of people wearing them and dancing in the mud! I'll wear mine next year. Great service from Zappos!

I cannot believe how comfortable these shoes are! We are planning a vacation with a great deal of walking, and I wanted shoes that would have no discomfort after a whole day. This was it! I have given them several trial runs and am very impressed. And the style is my favorite, giving open areas to breathe for the summer, but closed toes for safety on uneven walking areas.

I took another lady's advice...I purchased both the Whisper sandal by Keen and the Venice H2 by Keen. I have a high instep or in other words...a fat foot. I had to return the Whisper sandal. It was too narrow. The Venice H2, on the other hand, fits perfect! Zappos is wonderful with free shipping and returns. Now I will be all set to go to Disney in the fall. Thanks Zappos.

Great shoes, only thing to complain about, a small spot rubs on inside of my right arch---never worn this shoe before, so that could be my anatomy. Otherwise very comfortable and will definitely work for my water activity!

Love my Keens and they are so versatile and comfortable. Use them to ride my scooter. With the reinforced toe I can ride with sandals without compromising safety. Thank you Zappos for bringing us the Keen brand.

I went with the advice of previous reviewers and ordered half a size up. Thanks for that - they fit perfectly! So far, I'm completely happy with these sandals. They were comfortable right out of the box. They're sturdy, but flexible and I love the way the footbed is contoured with nice arch support and higher edges which make my foot feel really stable (no sloshing around). They've been great for casual wear in the city and I think they'll be a good sandal for summertime day hikes.
