This is my third pair of Keen Portsmouth. The first pair was of great quality and lasted me 4 years. Next pair they changed insole to one that makes foot slide in a shoe. Also seems started to fray after less then a year of moderate use. Third pair, Keen changed the outsole that got warned out after less then a year. Not happy with Keen Portsmouth anymore. It will be hard to find replacement as I really loved the style.

This is a great commuter shoe. It was a big upgrade for me from the Merril mocs. The shoes are well made and have been comfortable and dry for the first few weeks. I do not think they are warm, especially when wearing a thin sock, but I don't think these will be used for heavy duty cold weather outings. I bought these shoes more for function over looks and have not been disappointed yet.

I buy a pair of these every year. They fit great and go with anything I'm wearing. I wear orthotics and they work perfectly with these shoes.

This is my 3rd pair, I love them! It's the best investment in my feet in years. The Portsmouth goes perfect with casual and semi-formal-everyday clothes. The only thing is laces. They tend to wear fast and is difficult to find them in the store. Last time I sent an email to Keen and they sent me a replacement for free!

I ordered these shoes from Zappos.com and expected to get them in a week or so, next thing I know I received a email telling I had been given upgraded shipment at no charge. I received the shoes on the morning of the third day. They were perfect and just line the pair I wore for 5 years!

I was looking for something comfortable but a little dressier than the typical trail type shoe. This shoe met both criteria.

This will be the third pair of these that I've had. I absolutely love these shoes. They are what I put on when I get home, and I work in running shoes all day. They're great for walking the dog, knocking around the yard, whatever.

I ordered the Keen Portsmouth based on the experience I have had with the Keen sandals I bought two years ago. The sandals were the most comfortable footwear I had, but just didn't work in the Ohio winters. The Portsmouth is equally as comfortable and test have proven them to be water proof in the 20" of snow. I love it when you buy a pair of shoes and you don't have to break them in! Also, don't waste the money on overnight shipping with Zappos. I ordered my Keens for regular ground UPS and got them in 2 days! Thanks Zappos!

This is the 4th pair of these I've gotten for my husband - he loves them. They are the only shoes that have provided the width he needs. Fast shipping too. If you need replacement shoelaces, Keen will send them to you for free - pretty wonderful.

These shoes are very comfortable. I normally wear a size 13 in shoes, but needed a size 12 in these. This may be from the wider front footbed. I like these shoes because they are versatile/casual shoes that can be worn with jeans or cords in a casual professional setting.

Finally a shoe that fits! Anyone out there like me who has a very wide forefoot, tall big toe, and narrow heel check out these shoes! These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. They may not say "wide" on the sizing chart but the shape of the shoe from the arch forward is perfect for me. Plus the look great and are waterproof. I may have to buy a few pairs in case they are ever discontinued.

I purchased for my husband to try to make a Keen lover out of him.He stands on concrete flooring for a good portion of his work day. They do offer more support than some of the athletic shoes he uses. He has added extra arch support to them. I know they will wear well as I am a long time Keen customer and I give them 5 stars for style! Not sure he is as enthusiastic as I am with the brand though.

I have worn out 3 pair of these shoes and I like them so much I keep buying a replacement pair. Last time I ordered the same size (11) they were much narrower than before and they did not fit. It appears that the size varies somwhat from one pair to another.

Fits well, comfortable, large toe box. Sturdy casual shoe. Does not squeak like an earlier pair did. Good for a high arch.

This shoe can take a serious beating, but weathers well. I wore it for two years in Central Asia, it survived monsoon seasons in the south and very long treks. Back in the States, they still look great with jeans when I'm out. I'm getting a new pair just because the soles are finally wearing through.
