I have another pair of Keens so I knew I had to order 1/2 size larger. They are light, cushy and fit perfect. Not quite so wide as my first pair, which is great for my narrow foot.

I loved the color of these sandals. But the fit was dreadful. I normally wear either a 10½ (hard to find) or an 11 so I ordered an 11 to start with. They fit like skis - at least an inch of empty sandal beyond my toes. I am sure that I would have tripped if I had kept them and worn them. I then ordered a 10½. They were also long but not quite as long and extremely narrow. I could not even get the left sandal on because of the extremely narrow width. I have purchased and wear a different style of keen sandals and they are very comfortable. If you normally wear narrow width shoes, this style would probably be a good choice but order half a size smaller.

Great Shoe - I ordered this shoe for a beach vacation in Mexico. It is very comfortable and was great for a beach vacation. It would rub against my foot a little when I wore the shoe for long periods of time without socks. I think this was because I didn't break them in at all but took them right on vacation. When they started to get uncomfortable, I'd wear socks with them for awhile and that would alleviate the discomfort. I also noticed that if you adjust the straps correctly and snugly, the shoe doesn't rub against your foot. Plenty of room in the toe box, which is a MUST for me. Overall, this is a great shoe and I look forward to wearing it this summer!

I absolutely love these shoes! I am a nurse and on my feet 24/7 so I am a fanatic about comfort and arch support. These shoes feel like you are walking on grass all the time. My feet do not sweat too bad so if this is an issue for someone that I do not have a strong opinion on if these shoes will offset that or not. I mostly love how feminine these shoes look. The actual shoe lining seemed a little more pink then I thought it looked in the picture but I have actually grown to like them more because of this. They really are a unique color that you will not see on other people's feet very often. I truly think these make the perfect camping sandals. I was walking around in sand dunes all week and it was no problem to dump all the sand out at any time, I imagine if I had gotten them wet at the same time this would have been more difficult. The only drawback is style for I am not the type of person to wear these shoes to a nice restaurant or anything, I am sure that you could get away with it but I just do not think that is the function that these shoes should serve. Overall though these shoes are amazing and you will love them! I also felt that these shoes were maybe half a size smaller then what I am used to wearing. I usually am a size 8 and these felt like a 7½. But they are just so comfortable, that my feet do not hang over at all, and they make my feet look so cute that I figure I will just grow into them better the longer I have them. I hope this review/rant helps.

Ugly but perfect comfort for walking. They do not look attractive on my feet, but the comfort factor outweighs the style factor. I wear these to walk the dog and for travel, like walking through airports, etc. They felt tight the first time I put them on but have stretched and loosened up a bit but I can still snug them up with the elastic pull cord thingy.

Love these! I resisted buying sport sandals because I thought they might be too goofy looking, but these are not only nice in appearance (I bought the Nile green/grey), they are so comfortable I don't know how I've lived without them. Super lightweight and supportive, you can easily forget you're wearing anything. Wore them on vacation hiking right out the box, no break-in period. For reference, I'm usually a 7 1/2, and while I could have gone with that size, the 8 offered a bit more wiggle room. I have a narrow foot, and these were easy to adjust to the correct fit.

I was looking for a comfortable, knocking around shoe that was light weight and comfortable. This shoe really fits the bill. It looks cute with all kinds of clothes. Where I live tends to be wet and muddy this time of year, and this shoe keeps my feet a little higher off the ground than most shoes. The purple color seems to go with everything, too.

Love, Love this sandal! Though I had to send mine back and get a full size larger, I do love them. They are narrow, which is good for my skinny foot. They are not heavy and bulky like original keen. This is my first pair of keens and probably not my last. I usually wear 8 sometimes 8.5. I found with 8,8.5 my foot hung off the heel pad in the back and it was not very comfortable. I tried on the 9 and Yes that's my size. My foot fit completely in the foot bed and I just tightened the straps a little and it fit great.

I can't say enough great things about these shoes. I figured I would just wear them on bike rides and walks, but I wear them everywhere! They are so comfortable! I have bad back problems and these are the only shoes I have found that relieve my aches and pains! (All brands including Nike, etc don't even do the job!) And I love that these shoes allow my feet to breathe since they get hot so easily! Very well made! But as everyone else said, they definitely run 1/2 size small!

I love to walk and need special shoes just to do so. I was using Teva sandals. Great shoes - don't get me wrong but these are amazing. I not only love the way they look but they feel amazing as well. Definitely recommend them to anyone who walks a lot - and for exercise too!

Buy 1/2 size larger than your normal size. I bought these as wet, dry, walk all day sandals for my trip to Puerto Rico. We are very active with hiking and kayaking, etc. They worked perfectly. They are not the prettiest shoes you will buy, but they may be the most comfortable!

These sandals are cute and comfy. I have narrow feet and I did like how I could just adjust the width for a snug fit. That is a huge problem I have with most sandals. They may adjust, but not enough to fit properly. I ordered the green and I just love them. This my first pair of keens. I usually wear and 8 sometimes if things are made small an 8.5, but I believe these fit true to size.

Love these shoes. Super comfy and durable. The high rubber toe box helps when scrambling over rocks or in a river, unlike Teva sandals where your foot is really exposed. Great for hiking in warm weather. The bottoms are grippy enough. I have narrow feet and the bungees do help to keep my feet secure. Only very minor issues. First, these shoes scoop up dry sand like crazy - it's almost impossible to walk on a beach without taking it all with you. Second, you will get the funkiest looking tan lines on your feet. I usually get blisters just thinking about them, but never got any with these. So happy with this purchase.

Love these Keen shoes. I've had the older model for years and wanted the lighter, mesh version. They feel like air on your feet. Great little loop on back of shoe to help you slide it on easily. Toggles to adjust to your foot. True to size In my opinion they are the best urban walking sandals. Plus they can go in the water so are also perfect at the beach!

These do indeed run a half size small (I have been an true size 8 forever, needed the 8.5 this time). Look much cuter than other Keen styles (less chunky toe). Very lightweight, a bit snug, but assume it will "relax" with a bit of breaking in. Have Plantar Fasciitis, but needed something for summer kayaking. Spent 6 hours walking/standing in them on first day with minimal foot pain afterwards (same as with my arch supported sneakers). Really looking forward to having these this summer!

These Keen Whisper sandals are great! I forget I have them on sometimes, as they're so comfortable. I love the toe protector, it's saved me several times from a few stubs! I usually wear mine with thin cotton ankle socks in bright Summer colors that always match my shirt, and I get a lot of compliments about how coordinated I look. One thing I noticed is that these run small, even without the socks. I normally wear a 6.5 or 7 sandal, but in the Keens, I wear a 7.5. What I did was try some on at a nearby store that didn't have the color I wanted, then decided I couldn't wait for them to get some in stock, (several weeks) and since I knew my size, I ordered them from my favorite online store: Zappos! They arrived within 48 hours, and I've worn them almost every day since. Not planning to get them wet even though they're waterproof ~ they're much too nice! I got the Coffee Liqueur/ Yellow color because they were the most neutral, and go with Everything. Get a pretty brown purse, and you'll look chic. I'd like to get some more Keen Whisper sandals asap, probably the black ones, as I have a lot of black purses!

This shoe is quite comfortable and very much as described. It looks like it is a quality sandal. The fit seems true to size, but I wouldn't have wanted it any smaller. One review said they stretch a little and that would be fine, too. If you can't decide between two sizes I would recommend the larger size. With free shipping and returns you can't go wrong.

As a long-time wearer of Keens, I find the Whisper to be up to its expected standards, although I wish the strap on the outside didn't extend quite so high. It rubs both ankle bones. All in all, though, I highly recommend them.

I bought these for a 25-day trip to Thailand and wore them almost every day. They were fantastic! And my feet never hurt, despite all the walking (so much!), hiking (which included walking through small streams), and elephant riding. And they are very lightweight.

I bought these shoes with some misgivings as I normally wear an 8D shoe. I ordered the 8.5 and was pleasantly surprised. The shoe was wide and deep enough to accommodate my bunions and still hold my heels securely. There was no breaking in period and I'm looking forward to hiking the River Walk in Zion Canyon this summer.
