The Austin line of Keen shoes continues to be an excellent choice for me. I have 7 pairs and use them every day for both office and walking the dog. Their Finlay line also mirrors the construction of the Austin.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen Finlay, Keen Nopo Waterproof boot

For me this is an exceptional shoe. It has a soft foot bed and is roomy in the toe area. I have some foot problems, but this shoe served me well on a vacation in Ireland.

Great shoe but beware of shoe size: Pros: Crazy comfortable. I'm a teacher and am on my feet all day. The heels are strong and supportive. They are more comfortable than tennis shoes for long durations of time. They look really good and can be worn with about just about any type of pant. I have two friends that have a pair as well and we are all fans. Con: (well, a small con) - I'm crazy finicky about shoe size. So be warned: Keens sizes are tricky - I'm consistently an 11 in a Nike - but a 10 or a 10 1/2 in Keens. 1/2 a size smaller and you should be good to go. I've seen reviews that say "true to size" - but that is untrue. Overall: You will be very satisfied with this shoe. If this pair ever wears out, I'll probably buy another pair. Zappos has got some crazy good customer support to take care of you as well.

These are great shoes. I wear them for every day use. They are on my feet all day and they still feel great. They look good with all casual wear and I love the toe guard.

My dad, 89, is on a walking kick. I bought a pair of these for him. He said his toes had too much room. I called Zappos and they sent another pair 1/2 size smaller before I sent the others back. Dad is real happy with these, says they are real comfortable. Great and pleasant customer service. Keep up the good work, I'll be back.

My second pair after years with first pair finally wearing out. Austin's are comfortable with excellent construction. They're stylish enough for casual dress and great for walking around town.

What a great pair of shoes... I have the Keen hiking shoe, but wanted a comfortable shoe I could wear to work. This fit perfectly. It's comfortable, professional enough to get away with wearing to work and I simply enjoy it. Excellent support as usual from Keen.

This is my second pair of Keens (the other is an ankle boot). These are great looking shoes, really nice leather texture. Very comfortable (they're Keens!). Haven't worn them long so would have to report back on longevity, but am happy with them right out of the box. A bit pricier than I would like, but if they stay solid after a few years of regular wear, then it'll be worth the cost. Also, Zappos is the bombdiggity. Great service and support.

These are my most comfortable Keen shoes, and I have several pairs of Keens because my arches need support. These Austins have just the right weight and fit and they were very comfortable for walking right out of the box.

I've had a pair of these (in an older style) for years. They were the most comfortable shoes I'd ever owned, but they'd gotten long in the tooth. I was so happy to find these(new style) on Zappos. AND, my new ones are even more comfortable!

I've had these shoes for 2 years now, and still use them on a regular basis. Very comfortable even after years of use. This is the shoe that inspired me to buy more Keen shoes for myself, and my kids.

I was looking for an all leather shoe for walking and mild hiking. This is exactly what I needed. It is very comfortable and the classic Keen rubber toe serves well on the hiking trails.

I bought these shoes for my husband to replace a pair he had just like them several years ago. He has wide feet and a high arch and he says these fit both of those features perfectly. He says these shoes haven't changed and everything he loves about the ones he had about 5 years ago are still there - although I don't know exactly what those "things" are. If you are a general Keen enthusiast (like my husband and I) then these will not disappoint.

Brands I'd also recommend: Simple - but they don't make them anymore :(

Awesome shoe overall that is super comfy all day. It can either be dressed up or down and looks good both ways. Also its a great shoe for crummy weather in general but still looking good.

These shoes are very supportive and comfortable. I am a teacher and my knees get very sore from shoes I wear. I bought these before I went to a conference in London and walked miles in them. Once they are broken in, they are great!

I bought these as a gift for my son and he loves them. They are so comfortable he has worn them every day! Other family members have tried them on and are planning on placing an order for a pair because of their comfort. They look great and are a real winner! Service from Zappos was awesome.

This is one of several pairs of Keens I have purchased for my son - and he loves them. He's a teacher, and says how comfortable they are, as he's on his feet much of the day.

First pair of Keen's that I have owned and they are great. Really comfortable, supportive, and a great shoe. I like how they are rather light, even though the picture makes them look heavy.

A great shoe! I bought a pair to replace the same shoe I had purchased and worn for over two years. The old shoe was still as good as ever but it no longer looked new. I work on my feet in a busy office for 40 hours/week and I have many pairs of shoes but these are my favorite.

Love Keen shoes, I own many pairs. The new Austin is a good shoe, I own an older version. This new version has less padding around the ankle and is a bit more stiff that the older version. It takes a few times to break in the shoe as oppose the older version which felt more like a running sneaker. The older version the sole wore out very quick, I can't comment on tear and wear yet on this one but I hope the sole is more durable. Still a great looking shoe and I will keep buying Keen!

I have owned many pairs of Keens and find them to be the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. I love this new chocolate brown color. These are great walking shoes. I walk at least three miles every day and these are even better than sneakers for long walks.
