These shoes look even better in person. Very good quality. Worth every penny. My son has worn these every day for the last month and a half with no complaints. These shoes are showing zero wear on the soles. A great shoe.

Great shoes for outdoor activities! We bought these for our 10 year old son for Scout related hiking and other outdoor activities. The shoe worked well, were comfortable, and helped keep his feet relatively dry and safe.

Keens are the only shoe brand that my kids out grow before they wear the shoe out! They are worth every penny.

Great shoes, as usual. The only ones my son likes to wear to school. They also work for the light hiking we like to do as a family. These shoes are especially suited for kids with wider feet.

These shoes are too comfortable according to my 6-year old son. He stopped wearing all other shoes. His feet are a bit wide and chubby and Keen has the exact fit for him. customer service is excellent too! I buy shoes for the whole family from here. Thanks.

Brands I'd also recommend: these shoes are for kids with wide feet and prefer a little extra room in the toe area.

Purchased these for my son for school. Had purchased him a pair of traditional "sneakers" with mesh and such on them. They didn't last more than a month without starting to rip/tear. These were a top name brand running shoe company. I got these in the hopes that they would stand up to his active lifestyle. 3 months in and these have held up beautifully. It's like he hasn't even worn them (though he wears them every day for school).

My son loves these shoes. Easy to put on, comfortable and sturdy. They last a long time too. Although pricey for a kid's shoe, they are worth it due to they don't wear out in 3 months like some other shoes. His last pair lasted a few years. Also, my son has a wide foot so this are great for that.

I purchased these for my 5 1/2 year old son. He likes them a lot, and can get them on easily. He can also tighten them using the strap. I generally always have to buy him XW. However, these shoes fit him really well. I've bought a few other styles of KEEN as well for him. They are a great brand!

Great shoes for my grandson. He loves Keens. This is probably his sixth pair. They are great and last forever! He always out grows them and they are still in good condition. Sturdy for growing boys!

These are sturdy, well made, comfortable shoes for my sons. They hold up well to moist conditions and are easy to take on and off. This is our 2nd pair and will be a regular purchase each year when they need new school shoes.

My son loves these shoes. We've gotten others in a similar style, but he really likes the deep brown color. This is a great brand too. Very durable and lasts until he outgrows them.

This is the third pair of Keen Kids Gypsum shoes I get for my son and he loves them. The shoes look good for casual wear and excellent for school use. The most important factor for him likening this shoes is comfort. They are soft flexible and provide plenty of room for his feet without discomfort. The shoes are durable and are resistant to the use from a young active child.

My son LOVES these shoes! This is his 4th pair. Only replaced them because he grew out of them. They are very durable, easy to put on and washable. I'm sure he will continue to wear this style until it is no longer available. Order a full size larger as Keen's tend to run small.

After wearing through many shoes of several brands, I finally bought my son Keens. The toe/heel withstands anything he dishes out on the playground. A few of us in the family have them now and they are our favorite shoes. They do feel snug at first and seem to slip off the heel. But just walking around a bit they are perfect, great support, and our feet feel great at the end of the day.

I bought this shoe for 3 of my boys Christmas of 2011. The shoe is in still great condition. It's their main shoe. they wore it through the end of last school year, through the summer, and they are still wearing it through this school year. The sole is showing some where and tear now..but they wear them every day almost, almost 1 year with the shoes and all 3 pairs going strong.. I want to see if it will last them till the end of this 2012 school year . So far it looks like they may. Great shoe! As far as a school shoe goes, a keen shoe is the best investment. They would be on their 3rd pair of sketchers by now, with the same amount of use. So yes, these are worth the money.

I ordered these for my very picky 12 year old son with small skinny feet. This was the first pair of shoes that he did not complain about being uncomfortable. He just put them on and went out to play. I then ordered a pair for my 10 year old son who doesn't care about how anything fits or feels and his response was "wow, that's a good shoe!"

Comfortable, Easy to slip on and off. DURABLE - the only shoes with soles my sons do not wear through as they ride their scooters, and drag their feet along the asphalt to stop!

This is a fine looking shoe that is sturdy and comfortable, too. My son wore these shoes to school every day from September to May and they held up great! Highly recommend this shoe for everyday wear. Liked so much, ordered the same pair this school year.

Wonderful quality shoes. Very durable and cute. They've lasted through an entire year of heavy use by my 8 year old son. Our only issue is that they are hard for my son to get on. We solved the problem by removing the elastic lace an relacing it through only the bottom three eyelets. We'll buy Keens again, but not this style.

These shoes were comfortable, but the soles felt really thin. If I went hiking in them, it seemed like I would feel the rocks under my feet, so I was not willing to try them out outside. They were wide enough for my feet (I usually wear D width).
