Love these! I was waiting for "Cheyenne" to come back on the site but decided to try the "Howser." Fit great right out of the box, true to size and no rubbing on heel as mentioned in some reviews. I am glad I purchased the nylon waterproof. I had the wool Cheyenne and they did wear through in spots. These will be my go-to shoes in our Wisconsin winters. I definitely can wear with jeans, slacks. These are not just slippers. Keens are my shoes for life and as always, Zappos you rock!

If, like me, you're buying these shoes because it says they're waterproof, don't! One walk with the dog on a rainy day and my feet were wet. The upper may be waterproof, but the seam between the sole and the upper isn't, so it doesn't do much good. Very disappointing!

Excellent warm shoe boot. Love these "shooties", and they are once again the highest quality Keen. They feel like a warm blanket wrapped around your foot and the tightness putting them on relaxes in time.

These are extremely soft and comfortable. My foot is very wide and the top of my foot angles up, so it is hard to even get my foot in regular shoes. This is my 5th pair of Keen's. They slipped right on and my foot was surrounded by softness. Great for lounging and a step up from slippers because you can wear them outdoors. A unique slipper/shoe that you must have.

I've had my Howsers for about 3 weeks now. I love them! Very comfortable. The opening was a little tight at first but loosened after a day or two of wear.

I adore these shoes! They are so comfortable, I feel as though I am in my slippers. It's nice to not wear leather. Only draw-back: I wish there was more arch support. I like them so much, I'm thinking of ordering a second pair as a back-up for whenever these wear out.

Second pair of these shoes. Very comfortable and the back doesn't break down after a year of pushing your feet in. Despite the little fleecy fringe, these shoes won't heat up your feet as some have suggested. They are moderately toasty and I also hike in them. My old pair is still holding up well after a year.

These are really a combination slipper/shoe. Great for just hanging out - you can go outside, pick up the paper, drive carpool, go into your cricket-filled basement, all without putting on real shoes.

I bought these as a gift for my 70 year old mother in Chicago. This has been a cold, snowy and icy winter and I wanted to help her stay cozy. She absolutely loves them. They fit great with socks, and she wears them around the house and out for quick trips to take out the trash, etc. She has a fairly narrow foot and they fit fine and probably not great for an extra wide foot though.

Love these shoes! They are tight on the top of the foot so I had to get a size ten and send the 9 1/2's back. The are so comfortable.

These slippers rock! I often forget I'm wearing them when I go to leave the house. They are very cozy and comfortable, the first thing I go for when I get home from a long day on my feet. I can fit a warm pair of socks in 'em & the non-slip bottom is an added plus because it's easy to slip around on other slippers. I was hesitant about spending this much on slippers but it's obvious that they'll last a very long time as they're made well. If you get them - enjoy!

So far, these are great for chilly, wet weather. They're a bit difficult to get on and off, but worth the struggle. The tab in back helps, and they're comfortable once they're on.

I love these shoes. Pure comfort from the first moment I put them on; feel like slippers with support. Perfect roomy toe box. Okay for my short 15 minute break walks. The rust color is more like pumpkin and livens up any outfit. I almost feel quilty wearing them to work they\'re so comfy, but I get lots of compliments. I own 5 different pairs of Keen shoes, they are all fantastic.

Wonderful shoe to wear anywhere you want to feel the comfort of walking. I wear them to work a lot and I walk miles at work between buildings. Lots of compliments on the shoe from all my co-workers and wanting to know where I bought them. Got the grey also and would definitely recommend this shoe to all.

If you have foot issues and need a really cushiony shoe, I don't think you will like this one. I love and mostly wear Keens, but this one did not work for me. I went with Merrell Breeze, much more cushion and arch support.

This is a very pretty color. Unfortunately after a few wearings for short times around the house, this shoe started to feel very tight over the instep and so I thought it best to return it. I still love Keens though!

Loved the look of these shoes, but unfortunately I'll be returning them. I don't have a particularly high arch, yet I found that they were too tight across the top of my foot which makes them quite uncomfortable. Love Keen shoes in general though, so will look for an alternate style.

I purchased these shoes before reading the reviews and sure enough I'm seeing similar complaints to mine about the tightness of the top of the shoe. These shoes made an indent on the top of my foot. I wore them for a few days hoping they would stretch a bit, but no such luck. I was actually bummed I had to return these because they are super soft and warm. Such a shame.

So happy to find a pair of shoes for around the house that have support and are not filled with feathers or made out of leather. I enjoy the great support for my feet. I am hoping, though, that Keen will fix these for next season. The opening is much too tight (and I have narrow feet) to the point where I got a bruise on the top of my foot. Love Keen, hoping they will fix this.

Super cute and comfy. The collar on the shoe can be a bit stiff, but it relaxes once you wear it for a day or two. This slipper doesn't get too hot, either.

I love these shoes once I get them on. Thank goodness for the loop on the back! I have a high instep and ra (which means my hands don't work very well) so it's a struggle for me to get them on. I'm getting better at it though! Once on, they are supremely comfortable, water resistant (I've already spilled on them) and cute with jeans. I also love that they are machine washable. I have the purple ones and I think they rock! Zappos is, of course, the best as always!

These are the BEST shoes... so comfy and easy to wear. Great with jeans! I usually wear an 8 or 8.5, ordered a 9 because of reviews. They are a bit big, but not sure if going down a size would have worked. I am happy to wear thicker socks... just adds to the comfort. Love Zappos!

Talk about comfort Keen did it again. Wear these everywhere. A little hard to get on but easier with a shoe horn. Are shoe horns outdated? Sizing is perfect. Can't wait to try them in snow.
