OK I said I'd update on the durability, Well the sole lower is coming apart. I received the shoes on the 25 of August; so these shoes look like they won't last me as long as expected. Shame on you Keen.

I bought these shoes for my husband in December (Christmas) and they already fell completely apart! The outsole has come off from the rest of the shoe. These used to be great shoes, but the last 2 pairs (in 1 year) have been of a much lower quality.

I have bought this same style of shoe three times since 2009. If they ever stop making them, I will be very sad indeed. Comfortable for walking all of the city on vacation and nice enough looking to wear to work. I love this shoe!

Great shoes. First pair I got were defective, but of course Zappos took care of that. Nice and comfortable.

I bought these for my husband for Christmas and he loves them! They look awesome too - but the quality is visible and he said they are super comfortable too.

Love these shoes. High quality, comfortable. I got the gargoyle color. Don't let the picture fool you. These are charcoal gray. I would recommend getting a full size smaller than you normally wear. Another winner from Keen!

These are great shoes. They run true to size. Perhaps a little wider than normal at the ball of the foot but Keen tends to design their shoes that way. I have a pair of their sandals and they are the same way. The inner sole felt a little hard when I first wore them but they quickly became very soft and comfortable. These are my everyday casual shoes and I love them.

Do you have bad feet? Search no longer these are the ticket! Great shoe for work, walking, hikes. Not the best on slick floors FYI. Took me one day for them to break-in. It was just a little stiff around the ankle in the front. No big deal and worth it in the end.

I have been wearing a pair of Austin's in a brown nubuck for 1.5 years and my feet love them! They are a little frumpy looking and go best with jeans. My new pair are the black full grain leather. These required more break in time, but they look much dressier. The full grain leather also seems to offer more support. They are a great shoe!

Currently dealing with plantar fasciitis I ordered these shoes because my Keen sandals were the only shoes I could walk in without too much pain. Plus I noticed that walking in my Keens began to allow my feet to heal. I was hoping these shoes would provide the same comfort. I am not disappointed. Now Ecco has dropped to second as my go to shoes. Keen is number one for me. I could not be more satisfied. I marked "felt wider than marked" as a positive. I usually order EE, but rarely find them on the internet, or anywhere else, in order to get them in normal delivery time. They fit very well for me.

Zappos delivers! You place your order and it is on your door step in 2 days, and if it doesn't please you send it back and shipping is free both ways...got to love that. I have placed many Keen orders via Zappos and have never been disappointed. I only wear Keen's as the toe box is wide to help with my custom orthotics.

Brands I'd also recommend: I am partial to Keens!

I have a wide foot (bunion), these shoes were perfect. I actually ordered 1 size smaller than my regular shoe size due to the extra large toe box. These shoes are extremely comfortable, suitable for work or casual, and are rugged enough to last about 10 years. Highly recommended! Customer Service was absolutely legendary.

My second pair of these. The first lasted several years, and I came back to them because they are probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. They seem to be running large now, though. This time, I went down a full size from my usual in other brands to get the right fit.

I love these shoes so much that I just bought a second pair. They're supportive around the mid-foot but there is loads of room for the toes. They feel solid and after a month of wear, they still look and feel great.

I have a fiendishly difficult foot to fit. Almost none of my shoes are comfortable for all day wear or for walking. I have a high instep, wide foot, big toe area. I ordered up a half size because I was worried. The shoes fit perfectly. Right out of the box. I wore them a little longer every day, and within a week, they were the most comfortable, supportive shoes I own. I am so grateful, so impressed, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I have tough to fit feet I wear custom orthotics. I wore another brand for 15 years and they discontinued them - go figure. I am glad that they did because after I tired a New Balance pair they hurt for a year and finally I went back to the store three times and the last time I got the Austin Keens and I am so happy that I did. I have a wide toe area and a narrow heel and these can be adjusted to be not too tight in the toes but snug around your foot with the laces. There is lots of room in the toes so they are nice unlike any that I have tried. I am sold. I cannot wait to buy another pair or two. Thanks to New Balance for not making my shoes anymore and forcing me to find something better.

My husband loves these shoes and he is very picky as to what he puts on his feet. I knew this Keen shoe was the right one and I love, love the brown color! Best shoes in his closet.

As with all Keen products, these fit great and have a more dressy look. I wasn't sure about the angled heel, but so far it has not been an issue. Very satisfied with the look and comfort.

I just received my Midnight Navy / Chestnut Keen Austin shoes, and they are perfect to wear with bluejeans and also around many of our Outdoor water-view activities. I am not wondering if these shoes will offer comfort or if they will prove to be durable as this is my forth pair of Keen Austin shoes over the years. I really wanted to try the Finlay Model, but could not resist these Navy Blue pair. Maybe the Finlay will still work it's way into a future purchase as I like everything I read about those as well. Prior to making a major move to Keen Sandals and Shoes, I was a Mephisto and Ecco buyer nearly exclusively. I now have everything from the outstanding Keen Newport through the Keen Yogi Style and couldn't be more pleased with this Brand. My only poor experience thus far were a pair of the Ontario Model which had a single stitching across the toe leather which gave out my first day of use. That one I don't recommend. The Keen Austin is a great shoe.

Brands I'd also recommend: I like Sperry Top-Siders around Boating, and Asics for Running

I am now on my 3rd pair of the Keen Austin. These are great shoes for either work (I work them hard and they last) or business. Unlike many other shoe makers, Keen has decided to have the shoe's shape actually match that of one's foot; brilliant! The result is a very comfortable shoe that can be worn all day in comfort.
