Love the fit and very comfortable. I ordered the wool version and not happy about how worn out the wool looks already (I have had them about 2 months or less). They look very ratty and old. Recommend nylon instead if you plan to wear them a lot (though the wool is much cuter!).

from North Carolina

I wanted these shoes badly but found them pretty uncomfortable. The back of the heel is really hard and I had a blister coming (even with socks) after wearing them for just a little while. I exchanged them for a half-size larger and they were still not all that comfortable, so I returned them. Also, the description said "memory foam" insole so I expected them to be more cushiony inside. Not cushiony at all. Wanted them to wear mostly around the house (to replace my Uggs) but just didn't work for that. Went with a North Face slipper instead.

Cute shoe, but fit very small. The opening cut into the top of my arch. You might try ordering at least 1/2 a size larger than your normal size.

The top hole of the shoe where you put your foot in is way too small. Very hard to put them on. The top of my foot was bruised from walking around in these shoes cuz the top was so tight.

Had these shoes for 4 months and they are literally tearing apart at the seams. I have own several pair of Keen shoes and never had them fall apart like these did. Will be sending them back and not ordering another pair.

So comfortable and warm! Problem! The wool is pilling and coming off significantly on both shoes in less than a month of use. What a bummer!

This is the second pair of Keen clogs that I've tried, and just like the others they are too small. (Crested Buttes were the first.) Plus, this is a really ugly shoe - worse than house slippers! Back they go. Ugh.

Within 1 month of getting these slippers the wool on the side started wearing out. It's now been 2 months and the the wool is torn in in 3 places. For the cost I would have expected them to last quite a bit longer than this.

Brands I'd also recommend: I wouldn't buy another Keen, Merrells are great

These slippers looked great, but were too tight around the top which makes them very difficult to put on. I had the same problem with Sorel slippers; tight and stiff. Broke my heart to send back these otherwise good slippers.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen products are excellent, this is just a poor design.

Classic Keen quality and fit. Warm and waterproof. I have been wearing them all day at work and they are great support and not too hot. Fit best with thinner socks.

After several recent experiences with very wet and cold feet, I bought these shoes based on the good reviews and IN SPITE of how they looked in the picture. I am so happy that I did! These shoes are much more attractive on than the photo would indicate, and they are warm and comfortable. Love the soft, fuzzy lining. They are now my go-to shoes, and I think I am going to buy another pair to make sure I have them for a long time. I have other Keen shoes, and for me, they run a 1/2 size small; so I bought a 1/2 size up, and they fit perfectly. I do not think they are 100% waterproof, but they are better than many other shoes I have tried. Love them!

I have Keen sandals and shoes and really like the footbed. These slippers are extremely comfortable and don't get too hot. They fit snugly. The loop at the back is helpful when putting them on.

These shoes are amazing! While the style is a bit boxy the comfort they provide all but makes up for this 'design' flaw. I bought both colors and wear them in my house as slippers and then out to run errands. The fleece inside provides just the right comfort without needing socks.

Super comfortable right out of the box. Love them and look forward to wearing them all winter long. Waterproof is so nice on wet days and the microfleece lining keeps my toes so warm!

Great shoe to put on for anything. Keeps feet warm. From Michigan. No snow so don't need heavy boots. But need something warm and dry. This is for you. It's a keen, comfortable, looks good, in any size or color, good for indoors as slipper, or outdoors for doing the stuff we need to do. As for Zappos well you are the best. Fast shipping. No problem returns. Why would anyone go any place else?.

Love! I was looking for a shoe to wear just to run around in without socks, instead of my Ugg Dakota slippers which my family has been persecuting me for wearing outside the house. These are amazing! I love them. I ordered my usual 10 and they are slightly large, so I ordered the 9.5 to see the difference. Super cushy and soft inside. Love the Ink blue color.

Mimi D

from Seattle, Washington

I bought these with the intent on using them as outdoor slippers and they are great! They do run on the small side, but once I took out the removable insoles and put in my personal insoles it gave me the room and support I needed. Even though these are Keens and typically functional vs. pretty, these looked great on my feet. Very happy with purchase.

I have owned a truly embarrassing amount of these slippers. I have a very bad back and I cannot walk around my house (all wooden floors) barefoot for very long. These Keens are extremely supportive and comfortable. I wear them all year round. For me they typically last about 9 months before I replace them, but I wear them every waking moment at home (and I'm a stay-at-home mom). When I accidentally leave the house in them, I'm not too embarrassed, though they certainly aren't what I personally would pick for a stylish shoe. As a slipper, they are absolutely perfect, and I recommend them to people left and right. They are comfy and cozy with or without socks. I go between a 10.5 and 11 in Keens, in these I wear a 10.5 but I usually wear them without socks.

I've had these for over a year and use them every day as my house shoes. I put a Superfeet orthotic in them and they are super comfy to wear all day. LOVE Them! They aren't cute -- nothing really is in a size 10 -- but they do the job and are easy on/off!

I got these in the grey wool. They are not the most attractive shoe in the world--my husband calls them my "squirrel shoes". BUT. THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY THE MOST COMFORTABLE SHOE EVER. I use them for slippers, only wear them in the house because i have fractures in both feet that are still painful even after surgery so I don't like walking around the house barefoot. I could not live without these shoes. My feet will be killing me and I put them on and--voila!--no more pain! I just came on the site to get another pair and I see they only have brown---I hope Keen is not discontinuing these! These have the classic Keen wide toe area and the inside is lined in super soft fleece. I even wear them during the summer although they can make my feet a little sweaty then. However, the inside heel area is worn down from everyday wear for a year--so time to get another pair. Get these shoes--especially if you have foot pain--you won't be sorry!

Howser is a great shoe. I am on my feet all day running up and down concrete steps and my feet were not weary at the end of the day. My arches were supported and my calves were not tired. I bought the orange and wow the color POPS!

Most comfortable slippers ever. I would seriously wear these everywhere if I could. They have lovely cushiony soles, rubber bottomed so you can go outside without worrying, warm fluffy lining that isn't too hot so that your feet don't get overheated, but keep you warm and cozy. My only complaint about these slippers is that, technically, you can't call them slippers, since they really don't just slip on or off. You can't just push your foot in, you have to use your fingers or a shoehorn to get your heel in. I have quite slender, narrow feet and they are quite tight to get on. And unlike most other keens, they aren't very wide across the toebox. Which suits me just fine, since my feet aren't wide at all, but if you're ordering Keens because you want the wider fit, don't bother with these. But otherwise they are awesome. Perhaps not the most beautiful thing ever, but so comfy.

Love these shoes! Warm (but not oppressively so), padded foot bed with some arch support, large toe box with no slippage in the heel. Bought my usual size in Keens and fit perfectly. Wish there were more colors.
