These are the 4th pair of H2's for my daughter. we are a very outdoorsy family. Lot's of hiking, beach going, and traveling. My very picky daughter always loves these. My neighbors 2 daughters also get to wear them because they are durable enough to go through 3 kids.

We love Keens and thought these would be the perfect ones to replace an outgrown pair. Have had them for a month and the stitching around the Velcro strap is coming undone and the Velcro is unraveling. Very disappointed in this particular pair we received. Normally Keens can make it through one or two hand me downs and heavy usage. We will have to replace this pair before another month or two. Not sure I would get the same ones again.

Well made shoe has lasting power and is made from recycled items. They're outgrown before they wear out.

My mom introduced me to these shoes as she has hip problems and has a time finding shoes that are comfortable for her. So I tried them, bought one in brown, then bought another in black. Found the Zappos site and bought three more pair in the blue(goes with jeans) the tan(goes with neutrals) and funky green(my favorite color). The youth sizes are great and fit just as well as the adult sizes but for a whole lot less. A youth 4 is a woman's size 6, a 5 = 7 and so forth. My feet don't hurt at the end of along shopping day with these shoes. They are a little sporty looking but your feet won't mind when they don't hurt at the end of the day!

Brands I'd also recommend: none come close to this product

My seven and five year old love these. Weirdly enough, I bought the sandals for a dressy event because it is very hard to find boys dress shoes that they would agree to wear even once. Under their pants you only saw the tips so it worked well and now they have comfortable sandals. Another plus: with socks they are multi-seasonal.

I am an adult with a small foot. These shoes are the same as the adult Keens but for half the price! I wore them hiking and they were very comfortable. Highly recommended!

These are the best summertime and outdoor shoe. They are incredibly well made and my son has never complained of any discomfort. There was no breaking in period and there really should not be for a kid's shoe.

I ordered a size larger for next year and could not keep them off my kids feet when they arrived. The enclosed heel and toe qualifies this shoe for summer campers who are required to send "shoes" with their kids to camp. They are machine washable and they dry fast; bright colors helps you to identify them when piled in the rest of the shoe bin. The best part is that your kid will probably outgrow them before they outwear them. Since adults seem to like them, I loved them so much that I ordered another pair in a different color that will fit this year. I cannot keep either pair off her feet. What ever will I do in the winter? oh yeah... add socks!

My kids love these shoes! Very pratical design for children. My 2 complaints are that they can be a little troublesome to put on and after a couple of days without wearing socks the kids feet started to stink. These are sandles, but have a lot of synthetic components that don't allow the feet to breathe well. My kids simply wore ankle socks and off they went to play. Durable, water resistant, and comfortable. Minus the stinky feet at times, I would recommend these shoes again and again for kids.

My 10-year old loved these shoes. Very comfortable, but start to smell very bad after about 3 days. Luckily, they are machine washable! Waterproof, but take very long to dry. Other than that, an excellent product!

My son likes these shoes. They fit well and stay on his feet without his toes poking out the sides. They are easy to get on and off, and seem to be holding up well to rough treatment. So far, the bungee cord and the Velcro strap are okay (my son often yanks these 2 types of fastenings to pieces). They do become quite smelly, but wash well.

Versatile shoe, however my son complains that they rub his feet and aren't comfortable, and it seems they give him blisters on his heels. :(

Bought these for my daughter. Although they seem to fit, they rub in a part right near her arch on both shoes, so she must wear band aids or socks with them to keep comfortable

My daughter loves these. They are sturdy enough so she can wear them to school and then play in the sprinklers afterwards. The colors are great. Her brother got a pair and now even her older brother wants one.

These worked out perfectly for my daughter's 2 weeks at marine science camp. They got wet and yucky every day. I rinsed them in water each day when she got home. At the end of 2 weeks they still look and smell new. I can't wait to see how they hold up for our mountain vacation. I think they will be great for hiking through the woods and streams.

My 10 year old son loves these sneakers. In other sneakers he would complain that his feet were hot & sweaty. eventually, his sneakers would all end up stinking to high heaven. Now he wears these keens all year round, in the winter with socks and in the summer with bare feet. He has had two pair of Keen newports and they have never had an odor problem. I am now considering getting myself a pair.

I wear a woman's 4, so the youth size 3 is perfect for me. These are comfortable right out of the box, last forever (altho' the treads while good to begin with,get slippy on wet surfaces after a while) and have decent arch support for an adult foot.
