I love these! They felt wider than marked, which is great for me, because I have wide feet and usually have to order half a size up to accomodate the width. These are very comfortable walking shoes and they fit and felt comfortable right out of the box, which rarely happens to me. I have worn Keens for years, and this model feels softer than other leather Keens that I have ordered. These will be my new comfortable walking shoes. I wholeheartedly recommend them, especially for people with wide/problem feet.

I have a wide foot and usually have to "break in" shoes. When they fit right away, it is terrific! These shoes are comfortable! I'll probably buy another pair in a different color.

I love everything about these, except that the fit is not right for me. The top of my big toes hits the upper part of the shoe, and this is uncomfortable. You don't have the next 1/2 size larger in the forest green I want, and anyway I am afraid that my heel would slide too much if I ordered the bigger size. Sorry.

Love this shoe! It's much less utilitarian than my other Keen (which I do love) so I like them for just being an alternative. They are bit cuter, if that can apply. I had a slight rubbing on right heel from the shoe back but it will break it. Otherwise fits like a glove out of the box. Love Keen!

Very comfortable shoes as always. I like the ballet look. I like the color. They did run big for me. But I ought a second pair. I recommend Keens all the time because I get frequent comments on my shoes. They let my foot lie flat and not scrunched up...so good for your feet.

Brands I'd also recommend: I wear only keens...basically

So I returned and ordered a half size down and perfection! I never know with Keens so it is best to order two and see what works. These are definitely the chunky Keen you would expect but they don't make my feet look like complete boats. It is well worth it for the comfort. Nothing worse than sore feet when vacationing. Value for the money is great with this brand. I have dragged Keens all over the world and they hold up!

I bought this looking for a good shoe for work. This is a very comfortable shoe but I need a half size larger compared to other Keens I bought.

I LOVE my Keens. And I am very consistently a 41 / 10.5. But these were just a little on the loose side. So I'm returning in hopes the next ones will be just right. I love the brand, love this color, love love love. This is about my 6th pair of Keens in my closet. If you have wide'ish feet, this is the shoe for you.

These shoes are great! I wore them all day from the first. I had some problems getting the right size at first. The Keen website said they run small. I found they run large for me. I ended up with a half size smaller than my usual Keen size! They have good support and the nubuck cleans up easily.

I have difficult feet and was looking for a shoe that would provide stability but still look good with nice clothes. These shoes are great! They are comfortable as well as attractive. I sometimes have to order a half size larger than normal due to the toe cap on these shoes, but in this case my normal size 10 fit fine.

I find these shoes comfortable and cute. Great with jeans, skirts, shorts or cropped pants. They fit true to size and are "walk a mile" comfortable right out of the box, no breaking in needed. Not as cushy inside as the 2 other pairs of Keens that I have but sufficient. I have slightly wide feet so these are great for me, may be too big for anyone who wears a narrow.

I must have gotten a different shoe than the woman who wrote the review that said these fit right out of the box...either that or I don't know what size I wear! These are marked 7.5 medium but they slip off my heel when I walk, so I don't think they're close to a 7.5. This is my first experience with Keen, so maybe it is the brand. They're cute as can be and fit the bill for what I want but the size isn't right for me...perhaps if I go down to a 7???

Clunky and all I love Keen for their comfort. This pair is cute and the color green is great. They are definitely at least a half size to large. Mostly in the width and so the heel slipped right out of the box. This pair is going back but need to decide whether to size down and give them a chance.

These are pretty comfortable and are fine to wear all day. They are a bit big but I wouldn't return them- I think the half size down would be too small - you definitely have to wear socks with them.

Cushy and comfy and almost perfect until my feet started swelling and then the elastic piece near the toe started cutting into my puffy instep.

Multifunctional, but that rubber reinforced toe leaves zero room to stretch. I'm usually a 7.5 and it pressed my toe with every step. The 8 was too big. I'm sending them back.

I really wanted to love this shoe but the fit is off. I ordered both a 8.5 and 9.0; size varies with style. Even the 9.0 was too narrow and my toes touched the end of the toe box. Zappos makes it so easy to return!

I really liked these shoes, but they were too big. The insole is removal, so I was able to put in my own orthotic (powerstop pinnacle) for arch support, and it was still too big! I usually wear a size 9 in Keens. I am returning and ordered the 8.5. Hopefully those will fit. They look really cute with leggings and a dress. Very cute ballet flats! Only gave it a 3 star review because of sizing.

I love Keen shoes. These flats were exactly what I was looking for. A casual, cute, comfy flat with style. I have always been a 7.5, even with other Keen shoes. These were too small & my toe was squashed against the front. Meanwhile, they were entirely too wide on the sides. They totally bowed out when I walked in them. Unfortunately, I had to return them.

I'm desperately trying to find a replacement for a worn out pair of Privos. Thought I'd try these. The footbed was very cushiony, style was cute. They run slightly wide and my heels pistoned in them slightly. I fear they will cut into my heels, so back they go.
