Really like the shoes and they seem to hold up during long hours at work 8-10 hours on feet everyday. Get a lot of cokmpliments on the looks as well. Run wider than actual size but not too much slipping in the shoe.

My husband bought his first pair of Keen Austin shoes over 5 years ago, and after 5 years, they started to fall apart from heavy use. He loved them so much he wanted the exact same thing, and I was so glad to find them.

We bought these for our son for Christmas. He was thrilled. He said they fit true to size and were very comfortable. He's on his feet a lot and needs a shoe that is comfortable but that makes a nice appearance. These are his favorite!

These shoes are great for walking. I just wish they would make a wider width for those of us who have fat feet! They could do without the "Keen" logo tab next to the laces, too.

I have got fairly wide feet, so trying these shoes was a gamble. They started off feeling narrow at the broadest part of my feet, but with some thick socks and gentle wear, the initial break-in was promising. Now they are coming along nicely. I am looking forward to wearing these for a long, comfortable time.

I bought these for my husband to replace an old pair of other Keens. Since these are his second generation of Keen shoes and he owns another pair of leather ones, it is obvious that he loves them. They are super comfortable and he loves the look.

I just bought my third pair. The sole is comfortable and solid. I've had these on rocky trails and more typically on the street. They perform as well as any day hiking boot I've ever owned, and the weight is perfect for everyday. You get the boot comfort with a city look, which means that on the trail, it's not quite the fully and properly outfitted look. I walk at least three miles most days on asphalt or sidewalk. Foot and knee comfort is important to me. The toe protection is a great feature. This is my third pair.

Very comfortable and high quality. It's hard to find shoes for my wide feet but these fit! They've got a nice ugly round look similar to Sketchers, but feel more better built. Wish they weren't made in China.

Great shoes. It took a couple of days to break them in but they are very comfortable. They are dressy enough for work but look great on the weekends, too.

Just a little tight at the front near the tongue on the inside during breaking in, requiring I tie them looser than usual. Otherwise another excellent Keen product free from the problems with other cheaper Keen versions with plastic lace eyes that break or cloth eyes that wear within a year of heavy use.

My husband loves these shoes. As soon as he put them on, he loved how comfortable they are. But mind you, he finds Wal-Mart sneakers comfortable as well. But, I, personally have purchased Keen shoes for me, and I am hard to fit, but I always find Keen to last and last. I would recommend them to everyone.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen is tops and would stay with them alone! Great for standing long hours, hiking shoes are their best, good running shoe as well!

This is a great shoe for work and leisure. I spend the weekdays in the office and weekends at amusement parks. These shoes handle both with style. These shoes really grip wet pavement which is a nice feature. They also look very nice with a pair of khakis or jeans.

Austins are the only shoes my husband likes to wear away from work. They are perfect in his eyes! He's on his 3rd pair and the fit is consistent. They cup the heel nicely while providing arch support and ample room across the widest parts of the feet and in the toebox. He used to wear running shoes for all-day trips to Disneyland. Now he wears his Austins!

A perfect fit direct from the box - literally put them on and wore them an entire day - and they felt great! Spiffy looking shoes that make a statement with jeans, but can also come off the bench and pinch hit on casual dress day at the office. I personally am a fan of the look of "wide" lacing across the tongue - and it gives the wearer a lot of options to snuggle up the fit. I also have Keen Targhees (they're terrific) - so ordered the Austin's in the same size - and that worked out fine. I'll soon order the black version of the Austin. Again, it's a comfortable shoe, yet stout and well-crafted. These Austins completely embarrass the Eastland casual shoes that they replaced -- sorry, Eastland. Superb transaction with Zappos! Go with the Austins - you won't regret it!

These were great shoes for everyday use. Two things changed. They stopped stitching the sole to the shoe (starting to use an inferior glue) and the rubber used for the sole wares out in under 6 months. Not worth the money.

I purchased these shoes and took them on a two week vacation. There was a leather binding defect next to the toe of the right shoe. Many miles of toe pain due to rubbing from this on my toe.

I bought these shoe as I work in the construction industry and not always needing steel-toe boots, but wanted something that was durable and these are perfect. The toe cap keeps me from wrecking the front of the shoe when kneeling. I wear custom orthodics and they are thick and fit great. I wear between a 12 and 13 depending on the shoe - and with these I needed the 13. Great shoe highly recommended.

I was disappointed in these compared to my last Keens (Oslo). As other reviewers noted they are quite stiff, without much flex in the middle of the shoe. More like a boot than a sneaker. Also if I tighten the laces too much, the corners on the sides of the tongue dig into the front of my foot and I have to loosen them. They are also quite difficult to get on; I have to loosen the laces about halfway down the eyelets before I can get them on. I have worn the shoes at this point for about 6 full days.

Great shoes for people with wide feet - wide through the mid-sole, very roomy toe-box and adequate arch support. For people with abnormally high arches you may want to undo the laces from the top-most set of eyelets for more freedom in movement. I was also very surprised by the quality of the leather upper of this shoe. Very supple! Wears well with most casual pants (jeans, cargos, cords, etc). Overall a great casual shoe!
