Nice shoe - First pair of Keens, so far so good. Very comfortable. The laces are a little short but besides that I really like them.

Great shoe for work or play - This is one tough shoe. I average a pair of shoes every three months but I think this will be the last pair I buy for a while. I’m very happy with the comfort and the overall ruggedness as well as the style. I'm very impressed with Keens and I think I will be buying more of them when I need shoes. They seem like they may run a little big but it's hard to tell as they are nice and wide and have a very good size toe box. There was no break in required, I put them on out of the box and that was it, I forgot I even had them on.

Brands I'd also recommend: Any Keens.

I'm wearing Keen forever - The most comfortable shoe I've ever had. Sucks up to the bottom of my foot in all areas and stays there, providing the exact right amount of cushion and support. What else do you want to know?

Brands I'd also recommend: Anything Keen, Simple, also interesting is the Earth Brand but try those on in a store first.

The Austin: Great Shoe For Austin - I was in the last stages of getting ready for a trip to Austin, Texas and needed a new pair of Keens. I wasn't able to find the right pair in a bricks-and-mortar store, so I tried Zappos for the first time. Naturally, when I saw the Austin, I knew I had to try it out. It's a great shoe - very comfortable and stylish though a little stiffer at the top than my other pairs of Keens. This makes taking it on and off and tying it slightly harder, but only slightly.

Ready for adventure! I bought these shoes for a family vacation to Southern Cal. They performed beautifully! I have a wide foot so the wide toe box is a perfect fit. My Keens went to the mountains for day hiking, spent 2 days at Disneyland in the rain, and handled 4 days in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico without a falter. And I only had them for 2 days before the trip began! My dad is going to get a pair after he saw how these kicks performed. All day comfort and stylish looks. I am a picky shoe guy and if you are looking for a great walking/trekking/exploring shoe for a wide foot - look no further!

Brands I'd also recommend: Any Keen product.

Fabulous Shoe! I bought this shoe for my husband who wears a size 14. The shoes fit perfectly true to size, are very comfortable, and, for a wonder of wonders, DON'T look like Frankenstein shoes, which tends to be a problem for large men's shoes. I'll buy them again.

Keen Austin - The shoe fits true to size. Unbelievably comfortable. Great shoe. Keen has a style and fit that is unique. The heel fits snug and well with a wide toe box (which I love) giving you comfortable roominess. Awesome service from Zappos... from the order to delivery to the follow up on the delivery. Thank you.

Wow, so this is what Keen is all about... The second I put these shoes on, I felt like "wow". Feels like a customized platforms for my feet, very protected but cushy, balanced and snugged. No other shoes that I had gave my feet this feeling. They are perfect sized and I love the style, rugged yet formal enough for work or parties. For my age, comfort is taking over look but with Keen, there is no compromise.

Brands I'd also recommend: There is no other like it. Maybe other Keen shoes.

Great shoes - I got the brown ones and they're super comfortable, the best Keen shoes I have ever worn. Wear them all the time. Good enough for day hiking or city walking. I like the style too. I wear a 12 and these fit fine in that size.

Work all day in this shoe! Although I am a big fan of Keen sandals, it took me awhile to try out Keens more suitable for Minnesota winters. I work all day on my feet, sometimes walking as much as 7 miles in a day, and this shoe leaves my feet comfortable at day's end. It has great arch support, nice and wide, doesn't squeak on tile floors. A bonus is that it grips better on snow and ice than many shoes. I also like that it makes your feet look a bit more petite, even in shorts!

Keen Austin - Army/Earth - I was hoping that these were the "gray" color that I had admired in stores - and they were. Maybe I'm colorblind. My boyfriend wears a size 8.5 to 9 and has high arches so usually needs some kind of insert in his shoes. I bought him the 9 and they fit perfectly with no extra support needed. He wore them hiking on the first day and no rubbing, no blisters, no pain. They look good dressed up or down. I have loved keens for years and now he does too!

Plantar fasciitis relief - I am a pharmacist and am on my feet at least 10 hours daily 6 days a week. Having dealt with plantar fasciitis for the last 2 years, these shoes have offered a welcomed relief. I own several pairs of keen shoes but the Austin’s are quite simply the best for the problem I have.

Fabulous shoe - be hip in your Keens - My husband has only worn conservative track-shoe type shoes, but I made him get these and he adores them. They even accommodate an orthotic although he says they're very comfortable without them. His 35 year old son told him he was very hip in his Keens.

Keens are Keen! I've lost track of how many Keens I now own...it's really the only shoe I'll wear anymore. The Austin is another great shoe that is comfortable right out of the box. Keens have their distinctive look, which is great, but more importantly, they provide amazing comfort. If your feet are happy, you're happy, right? I wear the Austin for work, and my feet are just as happy when I get home as when I leave for work. And I'm on my feet the majority of the day. I can't give a strong enough recommendation for the Austin as well as any Keen shoe. For the money, Keens are an excellent buy compared to the many high-end shoes that don't come close. And Zappos service is second to none!

Great look and feel to this shoe. However, the side hit my ankle at just the wrong spot and I wasn't sure it would "stretch out" enough to be comfortable. Unfortunately had to return.

Durable shoes! My fourth pair of Keen's. The toe box on the right food has a piece of rubber that rubs into my big toe. I can live with it but this pair does not fit as well as my previous pairs. I should have worn them inside only for a while and then returned them for another pair. Hindsight. Not fair to ask about the arch support because I put Superfeet inserts into all my shoes. Deliver is wonderful.

I love these shoes, and am on pair #3. That said, I've had to take every pair I've bought to the local shoe repair guy around the third month of wearing them to have the rubber sole glued back onto the shoe. It's not an expensive fix, but it's a little frustrating. Keen: You make a beautiful shoe. Please use a glue worthy of it.

Good shoe...comfortable. I have had them for about nine months now and they are holding up well. I don't wear them every day as I switch them off with a pair of Merrells but I do like them for the comfort and traction. They are worth the money.
