I can't believe these shoes were on sale, Keen makes such a quality shoe. This is my second pair, the first pair lasted me 2 years (I walk my dog out on my property rain, snow, or shine 4-5 miles per day). These shoes are not narrow in the toes like previous post said. I have a bunion and need a slightly wider shoe, this shoe is perfect. Already put in 10 miles with them in past 2 days! Feel like a dream on my feet. Next day air, Zappos rocks.

Please stop changing the fit! I love Keen - I own about 8 pairs - all the same size. But every once in a while, I order a style that is a very different fit. These run narrow. Please, Keen - do not cater to narrow footed women; they have most of the other shoes in the world. They are very cute, though. I really wanted to keep them.

I bought this shoe directly from Keen before they were available from Zappos. Love them! My only complaint is Keen's inability to size consistently. I am typically a size 7. In this shoe I had to order a size 8 (of note, I also order a pair of the plain Alamosa which required a size 7 1/2!). My Keen Kaci lace ups are a size 6 1/2. Just be warned about these size differences between models; otherwise, they are just fantastic shoes.

I wear my Keen every day, and I never go home with aching feet. If you are on your feet 6 to 8 hours each day and doing a lot of walking, these shoes are perfect, well worth the money. I love my Keens.

These are the best shoes! From the moment I put them on there was no breaking in period! I just love them. After reading reviews I did size up and and I glad I did, they fit perfectly! I am looking forward to taking them on my trip where I will be doing lots of walking. I have always been pleased with Keen products and Zappos service!

I love Keen shoes so excited about these. They are very comfortable and have excellent support. Plan on wearing them to Ecuador for a 9 day mission trip and they should be perfect for that. I found that they run small and had to order a whole size up to fit with thicker socks.

Finally! I have been looking for a waterproof shoe to wear on rainy days for what seems like forever now. I tried several other brands, and they never fit right or were just too uncomfortable. But from the moment I put these puppies on, my feet have been in heaven! They are super comfortable and look very nice. Now let's hope they actually keep out the water!

I love these shoes! They were comfortable from the moment I put them on. They are nice looking compared to other walking shoes. The best feature is that they are waterproof: perfect for Seattle weather.

I really wanted to like these shoes, but unfortunately the toe box was painfully small. Within a few minutes of walking around in these shoes, I could feel hot, painful friction against my pinky toes. I am a true 7.5 in almost every shoe (including my other Keen shoes), and I do not have wide feet, but these were very narrow in the toes. I would have liked to just order a half size up, but the heel felt a bit big and was slipping, so I don't think that would have worked. They do look nice and feel sturdy and supportive for my high arches, but unfortunately they are just too painful.

I ordered these shoes because I am working as a landscaper. I needed shoes that are waterproof, breath, provide foot support for heavy digging, and are comfortable. The Alamosa WP completely fit the bill! It is like wearing slippers to work! I would like to add that the customer service at Zappos was of tremendous help in finding me the perfect shoes.

I love these hiking shoes. Rated as the most comfortable light hikers by Backpacker magazine, I'd have to agree. Excellent support and cushion, no break-in time required.

Add this to my Keen collection! I already have had many successfuly pairs of Keen boots, but wanted a light hiker/walking shoe, too. This fits the bill! Instantly comfortable, zero break-in time. Yay!

Love them! I wore them for the first time while hiking out West and couldn't be happier with them. They were super comfortable and kept me firmly on the hiking paths. I wore them with thick hiking socks and bought them 1/2 size bigger than my normal shoes. They are so comfortable I could wear them every day (if they didn't look like hiking shoes!).

This is probably the most comfortable shoe I own. I wanted something that was a combination tennis shoe/hiking boot and this hits the nail on the head. I have a lot of issues with my feet and pain, etc. My dogs are hard to please. But man, these shoes are a winner!

I love all things Keen, and these shoes are no different. I got them because I walk about a mile to and from work every day, and needed shoes that would hold up for the long haul. They're waterproof too, so walking in the rain is no problem. They're comfortable to wear all day!

This shoe was a much better fit for me in the heel than most hiking shoes which are usually quite loose in the heel. Great arch support, too. I can wear these all day and be very comfortable.

Love the looks of these shoes, and I've always ordered a size 8 in other Keen shoes, but these were too short. I'd already worn them outside before I figured it out. So I ordered an 8 1/2 and they are great. I still wear the smaller ones with no socks for a short time. Should have paid attention to the reviews! :)

My husband has Keen's & loves them so thought I'd give them a go. I do really love the shoe & it's comfortable, still a bit stiff around my ankles which rubs just a bit, but should break in soon. Love the waterproof feature as I hike a lot & live in Colorado where you never know if it's going to be sunny, rain, snow, etc. Overall a great shoe!

Perfect show for summertime hiking. Put them on, wore them on a short walk one day, and then an 8 miler a couple days later. No problems. True to size, for me, but I wore thin hiking socks.

I really like this shoe but the sizing just does not work for me. I ordered the 9½ and it was too short and narrow. I was not going to order the 10 but decided to give it a try. I have to return these too! My heel slips and they are too big! I normally wear a 9 in all shoes. I do not know how Keen decides on sizes.

I really wanted to like these shoes. I wore them around the house and they are just too short and narrow. I usually wear a 9 in Merrells and these were 9 1/2. I think I even need a 10. They were narrow too, and I have normal B width feet. Nice shoe just hard to get the right fit. Sending them back and not even taking a chance on ordering a 10.

Great looking (gargoyle/ceramic color) but had to return them for the heel slipping. Do not usually have that problem. Actually have never had that problem before. After wearing for 45 minutes around house found I had a hot red spot on my heel. I usually wear a 7 1/2 and ordered a 7 1/2. These felt a little small in the toe box but not quite a whole 1/2 size small. Probably would have kept the 7 1/2 if not for the heel slippage thing.
