I've had these for about a month now, and love them! Very comfortable, lots of arch support, plenty of toe room. They lace higher up the foot than most shoes, which I find keeps my foot from sliding forward in the shoe [I have narrow feet].

This is my fifth pair of Keens, second Austins. This new pair was a great reminder of what I love so much about these shoes. They are simply the best walking shoes I've ever worn. I bought my first pair in 2007 to wear on a trip overseas. The held up so well to around 5-10 miles of walking a day. So I've bought a new pair before each big trip I've taken. This time, I got the dark blue and brown ones...I love the new color.

The wide box really helped my bunion. These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet. Zappos is the only place to shop for shoes. YOU ROCK thanks!

I have used the shoes for the past month or so and they are very comfortable, what you would expect from Keen! I wear them as work shoes as they don't look too much like hiking shoes. Would buy them again.

I really like the wide toe box for comfort. I wore them right out of the box with no rubbing or tightness. Stylish and waterproof I wear them all day. Sizing is true to marking with a little extra width in the toe.

I bought these for my husband who wears a size 12, and has super wide feet. He loves them, and says they are just as comfortable as going barefoot. It is a big deal for him to say that, because he has a great deal of back pain, and many shoes, especially those where the heel is higher than the rest of the sole cause more back pain. Although a wide is not offered in this style, it is still wide enough for him. They look really nice, too. Great product.

This is my third pair of Keens, I like these shoes. My feet run a bit narrow and I need arch support, these shoes seem to fit me well. I usually wear a 9½ and ordered a 9 for these shoes.

This is the second pair of these shoes for my husband who is on his feet most of the day. He has long narrow feet; they fit and give great support. I have the women's version; my son has the kid's. Although we all have different foot shapes and issues(mine are short with a high arch), these seem to magically fit and feel good to us all.

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.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrel

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!
