Perfect for looks and comfort! I own several pairs of Keens, but all are loafers or water shoes, and they look a little masculine. Still, we buy them because they are so comfortable. Now these sandals? They are feminine and comfortable. They are like so many other fashionable strappy sandals, but the difference here is the level of cushion and support that cheaper sandals don't have. (They are well worth the price tag for simple sandals if you plan to walk a lot.) I have both black and brown. Another review stated that they were uncomfortable where the strap sits between the toes. This was initially true, but after only one wearing, they were broken in. Highly recommend!

I bought these shoes for a one-month trip to Europe. I was really excited to find a pair of sandals that seemed durable enough to handle a lot of walking and yet look somewhat fashionable! It took me about a week to break them in, but after that they were some of the most comfortable shoes I'd ever worn. Unfortunately, a week into my trip, the elastic on the back strap of the shoes began to unravel and I pretty much walked in them as if they were flip flops. Though I was technically "backpacking," all my walking was just done throughout the city - nothing too strenuous. I hadn't expected for these sandals to die on me so early on because of the price and Keen's reputation. I was really disappointed and bummed that my sandals died early on since I really did love them and got numerous compliments on them.

I ordered my usual size but had to send them back and get a half size larger. I would definitely recommend going up a half size. Otherwise, these sandals are fantastic. I put them on right out of the box and went on a 25 minute walk and they felt great! No breaking in was needed. Super comfy. I get tons of compliments on them. I highly recommend these sandals.

I have plantar fasciitis that comes and goes, so I have to be really careful what kind of shoes I wear and for how long. Honestly, these are not the best shoes for this problem, if it is already irritated they can be pretty painful, but they do not cause it to flare up. So as long as my feet are feeling okay I can wear these all day long! I really love these shoes. They can be worn with a dress or super casual as an alternative to flip flops. Also I have wide feet and these fit great.

Bought this shoe to backpack in Europe. At first, I was unsure because the back strap didn't fit as tight as I would have liked, but these shoes turned out to be super comfortable for all the walking around Europe!

Cute shoe, but straps are stiff and will chafe over a period of time. Definitely do not have the arch support nor the overall long-wear comfort of Naot. Not as comfortable as Naot. I will never again wear an uncomfortable shoe for fear that bunions and other foot problems will occur as they have on many women I know. No bunionectomies for me if I have a say in the matter!

Cute sandals! Very comfortable, and well-made. I wasn't bothered with the strap between my toes. I was, however, bothered with losing the back straps on my heels - both kept slipping off when I walked in them, and each made a faint squish sound as well. Sadly had to return this pair due to my skinny heels.

This is an exceptionally comfortable sandal with very good support. Don't let the thong put you off. I have "tender" feet, and after a couple hours, the leather softens and takes on the shape of your foot. I look forward to many hours of summer wearing and walking in these sandals. Bonus -- they look great on the foot!

These shoes are beautiful, but I have to return them. On the smallest buckle setting, the sling back was too big. Also, the thong was painful between my toes. What a shame. The footbed seemed like it would have been very comfy. I wanted to love these, based on the glowing reviews.

This is my first time to try this brand and I am very pleased with this sandal. I had no issues at all with the strap between the toes and haven't had to break these in at all. I have high arches and was looking for cute sandals that would give some support. I was worried about the slate black color but they are almost a bronze. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Incredibly comfortable and well made sandal. I vary between a size 9 and 9.5 and did need to go with the larger size in these, the fit runs every so slightly small. If you're looking for a sandal you can walk long distances in, but don't want anything too athletic or matronly, these are an excellent bet. Highly recommended.

Last summer I bought 2 pairs in the other colors and found them to be so comfortable and wear so well that I have just purchased this pair in black. They are like walking on pillows. I am on my feet all day and walk a lot. They are comfortable enough and stylish enough for me to wear all day at work. Love them!

These are great sandals! I was looking for something comfy, but not overly sporty and they fit the bill. Cute with shorts/ skirts/ capris and work well for my casual workplace. The rust color is more orange than pictured, but it is a fun color. The back strap is loose, but still the shoe stays on my foot just fine. I found the 8 to be true to size.

Love this sandal. It is comfortable without looking too clunky or old lady. I need the extra padding and this provides great cushion. My only wish is that I could make it a little bit tighter so it doesn't become a flip-flop - but I'll add another hole to cinch it in.

I heart Keens. Super cute, super comfy. Makes toe exposure rather fun...and I'm a sucker for toe protection - especially on the subway.

Based on the reviews, I can tell this sandal either is really great or a no go. For me, it's great. I now have two pairs and will wear them until they fall apart. The fit is perfect. The thong piece helps stabilize the sandal without cutting into my foot. (It feels a little tight at first but loosens within hours.) The soft leather, padded insole and flexible bottom are practical comforts, yet the lean lines of the straps make these quite feminine. At the very least, give them a try. If they work for you, you'll be thrilled to have them.

Very comfortable shoe! I don't want to take them off. They hit the foot in all the right places and have very soft, "squishy" footbed.

This shoe fits my foot like a glove! According to other reviews I wear them in the off season at night instead of slippers to break them in for my upcoming trip for a lot of walking! I don't anticipate any problems. Very comfortable for trekking in Spain for 2 weeks in the month of May!

I want to fit into Keens, I really do, but alas these shoes didn't fit. They hit me correctly in the arch but were too long overall. The color was just as depicted and seemed like it would be comfy in general. Oh well.

Comfortable shoe and great for summer. The toe strap takes awhile to break in. I've worn them 3 times and the right toe strap hasn't completely adjusted to my foot. I would recommend these shoes.

These are very comfortable. Yes, the toe thong does require breaking in, especially if you haven't worn thong sandals for awhile. But once you break that toe thong in, you can walk all day. The insole is very comfortable and I think they are well made. I would wear them with a casual dress or skirt as well as jeans, shorts etc.

These are exactly what I've been looking for! Cute and comfortable; you can wear them with jeans or a skirt! I do feel that Keens run a teeny bit smaller than my other shoes; I had to order half a size up (same with my Venice H2's).
