Best sandals ever made for kids! My 2 girls are each on their second pairs of these. We buy them large and they wear them for 2 summers; they are worn after that but still look great!

These didn't work out terribly well for us. They look good and are nice color, with a sporty style. But they're made from a stiff material (not fabric like some Keen shoes) that gave my son blisters. They also have developed a very strong and offensive odor that I imagine can only get worse over the summer.

My son really likes these shoes. He wasn\\\'t really sure about them at first but after a few days he was hooked. I got the large enough hopefully he will get some spring wading done in them before outgrowing them.

Zappos associates are awesome! They help every way they can to accommodate your every need. I needed these Keen shoes the day I ordered them. Zappos was so wonderful to get them out to me that day. Being a VIP customer and loving the online services, I have been using Zappos ever since. By the way, my daughter loves the Keen shoes and walked all over Disney comfortably.

A great shoe. May run a little small. Love that it protects the foot, but also allows the foot to breathe on hot days. A good looking shoe; we have had many compliments on it.

This was our first pair of Keen sandals and we're hooked! Each summer we get our son a pair of good sandals and these were exactly what we were looking for. Very sturdy, very rugged, very well made. They go with everything from jeans to khakis to all his shorts. We love the olive green color because they can easily look a little dressier or super casual depending on the outfit. These fit the shape of my son's foot perfectly, they are very easy for him to get on and off himself and they clean up both easily, and beautifully (they look great after lots of hard wear, and lots of cleaning). We also loved the fact that after lots and lots of hard sockless wear they don't smell! And the fact that they are pretty "green" (earth friendly) was a big plus for our family. And I recommend purchasing through Zappos 100%! At home fittings (no more taking impatient children shoe shopping!) and free returns make it worth it and then some! We will be getting another pair of these next year, and we will be placing the order with Zappos.

These are awesome sandals. I have four children and they each have a pair. These are sandals with the support of sneakers. I buy these every year and I will continue to do so. Also, Zappos is the best place to buy them from! No one stands behind their product like Zappos does.

These shoes are great. I thought my son would just want to wear them in the creek at camp but instead they have become his favorite summer shoe. They are easy to slip on and off and the color goes with a ton!

The Keen Hook & Loop is the best Keen yet – it’s the easiest to put on and take off. It’s the best waterproof sandal (rain and puddles are not an issue) allowing little bodies to release heat through their feet, but it has protective toe caps that prevent injuries during rambunctious play. They are so well made, they always look new, even after 6 months of hard wear.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keens are the best.

These shoes are great, fit well, can be adjusted, and look fine after loads of wear. When dirty just throw them in the washer. Despite narrow feet, they are comfy. Great for cycling.

These sporty kids’ sandals from Keen are a great find! They are easier to put on than their predecessors due to the addition of a velcro strap that allows you to fully open the shoe. My son loves wearing them b/c they are "cool" and look similar to his dad’s Keens!

This is the 4th pair of Keen Newports our 6 yr old son has had. The hook and loop makes putting them on easy. He wore them 4 days straight all day at Disney World. No complaints from him. They can get stinky. Foot spray works. Great shoes!

Great summer shoe! Easy to put on and very comfortable. This brand runs small. We ended up buying a full size larger than my son normally wears - thankfully Zappos made the exchange process a breeze.

My 9 year old daughter loves these shoes. They are true to size, comfortable, and have good arch support. There were no sore spots as usually happens with new sandals. And they arrived in one day with free shipping. I ordered myself a pair of Keens the following week!

Second year to buy the Kids Keen sandals for my son (age 7) to wear to summer camp. They wear like tennis shoes, but are sandals and let their feet breathe. I was very impressed with how well they held up and highly recommend them to anyone.

My kids have worn Keen Sport sandals for the past three years. We love them and these are just as great as the previous pairs that we have worn. Love the addition of the velcro. Makes getting on and off muck easier.

I have bought this shoe every summer for 4 summers for my 5.5 year old. This review is only for the Hook Loop model. This sandal is great. The dark color works well with church wear. It has a covered toe, so it can be used for sports. It doubles as a water shoe and we are able to do all outdoor activities with it. When they get dirty, just throw them in the washer. My 2 year old is now wearing the 5 year's cast offs and I am sure they will last for generations. I just wish Keen made this model in more colors and fun designs. We chose this model because it did not have a completely closed back like the Newport model (which makes it not as good for water play) and had a velcro strap, which is easier for the kids. Well worth the price.

We are currently living in a year-round summer climate. I bought these Keen sandals a year ago for the kids to wear with their school uniforms. They by far out performed every other shoe my boys wear. Including their sport shoes, which they wear far less frequently. They are durable, look great and most importantly, the last! These shoes endured a 5-week summer vacation, which included hiking the Grand Canyon, Disneyland, and much more. Then school started and they are still going. The kids have nearly outgrown their current pair, but for the price, these don't get any better.

Keen's Kid's Sandals Are Great - We purchased these sandals for two of our grandkids (ages 6 & 7). They wear them everywhere and love them. They are durable, protect their feet and are easy to clean! Hard to beat.

Great support for child's feet - I love these shoes. They have a very supportive fit. Kids can run and kick the ball in them. Also use them for the pool or beach. I am very happy with this purchase for my 6 year old son!

Mrs. I bought these sandals for my son's 5th birthday, he really likes them. I really like that they have a closed toe, little boys seem to be so rough! But still with the closed toe, they still look like a sandal and will be cool on hot days. He can even get them wet!

Just a word about Zappos customer service with regard to this shoe. My son's almost a size 1 1/2, I ordered the 1, and it seemed a bit small. Called the 1-800 number on here, and they are sending me a 2, and letting me keep the 1 until I get it. Very convenient for me and the agent was super nice about it. I will probably even get it in 2 days for nothing extra. I love Zappos,

My son loves these sandals! They give much better support than Crocs and are waterproof and washable. In fact, they are great for hiking and biking and look fashionable with jeans. The only problem we are all having is the bad smell of his feet when he finally takes off his beloved Keens.

Disappointed in the quality of this year's Keen. This is the 3rd summer I have purchased this shoe and have always been pleased with their product. I had a myriad of issues with this shoe with both of my children. The buckle came not sewn on one and the sole was coming unglued after only about 3 months of wear. Keen claims to have rugged shoes and this was not up to snuff. I will, however, purchase Keens next year in hopes they've improved.
