Love these shoes. I pulled up the inner sole and added some more arch support for my narrow, high arched feet. They go with everything and are very comfortable for traveling.

These are great shoes that felt wonderful right from the box. They are true to size and very comfortable for walking, being on my feet all day. They look greats with tights and dresses and with jeans and socks.Love Keens and these are my favorite winter shoes!

These are so comfortable! Not much arch support however, but I wouldn't say "no arch support." I feel that Keens always fit about 1/2 size smaller. Usually I wear a 9, but I always have to get a 9 1/2 in Keen. I love these shoes!

I love the look of this show and Keens are my favorite, but this seems to run small for me. So I am returning them, sadly.

I love this Keen! I have loved all my Keens, but I have a narrow foot, so most are a bit wide for me. This one is a bit more narrow than the usual Keen, so it is perfect for feet like mine. The footbed is super-comfortable. There was absolutely no "break-in" needed. You can rely on Keen for no rubbing blisters at the back of the heel, even with a slip-on. Note to those with Rheumatoid Arthritis--these shoes have wonderful support, but also the give and flexibility needed for feet that swell or suffer pain. And I love the color. It is a rich chocolate (less red than the picture online looks to me), which I love. Very nice stylish Fall shoe, less boxy/chunky look than other Keens, which is a nice alternative.

These shoes were great right out of the box! Very comfortable, no break in period. Would buy more in other colors. A cute casual shoe.

I love these shoes! This was great that the first pair I ordered worked out. I'm off to get another pair in a different color. I did order a half-size larger than I normally wear and they are fine.

As a Keen fan for years, I really appreciate these slightly dressier loafers! They look great with skinny jeans and the toe box is not as clunky as some styles. Other reviewers have gone a half size larger, which I have done before, too. Not on this pair. I stuck with the 10 rather than the 10.5. These have become my "go to" everyday shoes. Love them!

Love these shoes! I had also ordered the Kaci slip-on, but I guess my instep is too high for a shoe that comes up that high without an elastic gore - once I got them on my foot seemed to swim in them! But these are perfect! Love the insole - very cushy! Like wearing nothing on your feet! These are my first Keens.

Disappointed in these, I really wanted to love them. :( They run a little small and a little wide. My toes were hitting the end. I thought about exchanging them for a half size larger, but my heels were already slipping a little due to the width, so I knew it would be worse in the bigger size. If you have slightly wide feet, order a half size up and they'll probably work great for you.

Love the style, width and how sporty, yet cute it looks. However, seems to run a bit short for those of us who need a slightly roomier toe box.

This shoe was very comfortable, but way too small, and I bought a 1/2 size bigger, and too wide for my foot. I really wish it fit because I bought it in two colors and really like the style and comfort.

I really liked this shoe and wished it had fit. The left shoe fit, but the right shoe felt short - would have really killed my feet if I had worn them for any length of time. The width and comfort are fine. When a Keen shoe fits, it's great - this one didn't quite measure up.

I have lots of Keens and love them, but this shoe just didn't measure up. Although it fit true to length and was comfortable in the toe and heel area, the middle of the shoe was so wide (and I do not have narrow feet) that it left a huge gap. Too bad, because I thought they were super cute. They just don't feel as well-made as my other Keens.

These shoes were HUGE, and there was absolutely no arch support. A disappointment for Keen shoes.

So wanted to love this shoe, based on past experience with Keen shoes. I found the sizing to be narrower than the usual Keen shoe, which tends to run a wider than a real B. Sorry I had to return it as it looked great and would be a great travel, all purpose shoe.

These shoes are incredibly cute. The toe box takes a bit of getting used to though, very wide and square, so when you walk your big toe bumps because of the angle. I got used to that pretty quickly. Problem is that on mine, the rubber that comes up from the sole, and covers the toe, started to separate a few months after I got them. I wear shoes hard, and did plenty of exercise walks in these, so I felt cheeky sending them back even though I'm pretty sure Zappos would have refunded. I took them to a repair shop and had them re glued and sewn for extra support, to the tune of 40 bucks! Anyway, if you wear shoes hard you might want to budget for the repair that will likely happen earlier than you expect.

Normally love Keens, but these didn’t work out. I liked the idea of a less bulky look, and they seemed cute online, but less so in person. The fit is strange; the length is fine, but the middle of the shoe is wide, and gaps around my foot (I have a very standard, normal size 8 foot). My foot is sort of swimming in these, but I can’t order any smaller or the length will be too short. While not too bad, the shoe is stiff out of the box, and doesn’t seem like I could wear is barefoot comfortably (the top of the shoe feels hard and rubs against my skin). There is no arch support in these, and while less bulky than other Keens, there should be much better support for the bulk of the shoe. I want a cute, low profile shoe that I can wear barefoot sometimes, and with jeans or skirts. This one isn’t it. Back they go.

I used to love Keen's, but lately they seem like their sizing has gone all over the map. I am finding a half-size shoe difference between the styles and they seem to be growing narrower as new styles come out. I have my old-school styles that I still wear all the time and I love them. I need arch support and they've always been my go-to brand. This particular style was disappointing. They make my feet look really wide with the faux-cross-strap-looking cut.

Felt too wide in the heel. Wouldn't stay on very well. If ordered a half size down, it'd probably be too snug in the toe box area. I love my Keen sandals. Too bad these didn't work out. Will keep looking!
