This sandal is very cute, I have wide feet and it fit perfectly. Unfortunately, the ankle strap is not completely adjustable, it has a fixed nylon strap underneath the adjustable part that was too tight for my high instep. I had to return them.

I own literally dozens of Keens in every style. I have never been as disappointed in a shoe as I am in this one. I have very high arches, which is why Keens have always been so comfortable. I was looking for a sandal with a toe bumper that I could wear to walk comfortably during our hot summers. Apparently Keen no longer believes arch support is important. Do not believe the reviews that claim this shoe has moderate arch support. The footbed is completely flat. No more Keen sandals for me I guess.

I absolutely love these sandals. They are comfortable with fun style. Out of the box, they fit well with no uncomfortable areas. I have worn them while doing errands as well as for walks without any rubbing. True sizing for length. They run longer than Keen's Venice H2 (needed half a size larger in that style).

Such a disappointment because the strap around the ankle doesn't adjust like it appears. The strap doesn't open and is a set size with elastic. On top of that strap is one that could tighten if loose, but if your ankles are big and then swell, you would be very uncomfortable.

I would rather pull out my toenails than look for shoes. Nothing fits or is comfortable. Have never in my life owned cute little shoes. Then saw a lady at Farmers Market with the Rose sandal and saw the Keen button on them. I stopped her and asked if she was happy with them. Yes, she was. I went right home and ordered them. When people say their shoes were perfect right out of the box I never believe it...until now.I have worn them all day, every day, for a week. These are my shoes. I want more colors and will finally have a summer where I can look halfway cool in a nice summer dress or skirt or crop pants. Thank you Keens....please do not discontinue the Rose.

Lots of compliments when I wear these sandals! Comfortable, light-weight, stylish. This sandal addresses three issues I have with most sandals. My feet are odd shape (this shoe helps shape from toe to ankle), I can't afford pedicures (the toenails don't show and I can take care of the rest of the foot care myself), and my feet tend to sweat a lot (these sandals really do somehow keep my feet from having "stinky feet syndrome"). I highly recommend these sandals, just suggest ordering 1/2 size larger than you normally wear.

I love, love, love this sandal! Comfy right out of the box. The worst thing was the smell. They have some kind of antimicrobial coating, which actually bothers me because I'm picky about chemicals. But, I'm wearing them anyway, and really enjoying the comfort. The smell did go away after two days out of the box. One cool thing is that the sandals are machine washable. I haven't tried that yet, but the shoes say so.

These sandals are super comfortable and really cute on. I wear an 8 or 8.5 and I did order the 8.5. As other reviewers have noted, the strap across your foot is stretchy and doesn't detach when the velcro strap on top is lifted. But it's soft and doesn't bother my foot at all. It gave just a bit since I first put them on a month ago. One issue I had was the stitching started to unravel on the strap (which is unlike Keen footwear), however, so I contacted Zappos and they are going to exchange them for me. Super great service, as always!

I saw lady at the lake with these on and they looked so fabulous I had to order a pair for myself. I love these shoes! They are extremely light weight, easy on and off and great for the water or casual wear. I was stopped by another lady in a store and asked where I bought them. She said she was going to go right home and order her a pair. So they must look pretty great!

Best shoe I have! I ordered these for our African safari and I can't say enough about the comfort and fit. I have feet that are never happy long in one shoe, but I was able to wear these with no rubs, blisters, aches or pains for 10-12 hours a day over terrain that varied from sand and water to bush veldt. They required no breaking in, which is so unusual for me! They dried quickly, kept my feet warm enough in the cool mornings and cook enough in the hot afternoons. I give this an 5 stars!

I gave this sandal 5 stars even though it was not the right sandal for me. It was very cute and seems like it would be comfortable for lots of walking. However, I have narrow feet and while this sandal in medium width fit quite well, I decided to go with the Keen Venice H2 instead because it can be cinched up. My foot was a little too loose in the Rose and it's not adjustable. Also, there was a weird issue with the piece of fabric across the toe; it is at the exact location to catch on the toenail of my 4th toe when I walk. Maybe I just need to keep my toenails shorter, or maybe this is only a problem because I have narrow feet, but my goal is to have shoes that are comfortable for many hours of walking on vacation. The Venice H2 won out, even though the Rose are much cuter.

I love the Keen Rose Sandal. This is my 3rd pair of Keen shoes, and these are as comfortable as the others. I ordered my usual size and the fit is fine. These are a little more feminine than some of the others, which I like.

I love, love, love these sandals! The style is one of my favorite of Keen shoes. I can wear them in casual and semi-casual situations. They are so comfortable. I normally have a huge problem with my feet perspiring, but the material used for the sole seems to breathe well and I don't have a problem with foot odor like I do with so many other sandals. As far as the problem with the tight strap across the top that some of the reviews mentioned, I found all I needed to do was close the velcro strap loosely. After a short time, the elastic stretched to accommodate my foot/arch perfectly. I want another pair of these!

I love this shoe! I purchased them for a month long trip to Europe where I would be on my feet, in and out of the water, most of the time. They fit perfectly right out of the box. They look much nicer than other Keen water sandals, so I was able to wear them both to restaurants and rafting. Admittedly, I still looked like an American, but it was less in your face. My feet were never tired like I had experienced on other trips. It sounds like if you have fleshier feet then the ankle strap may be a problem, but I am pretty big boned and they were no problem for me. I hope they continue making this style, because my mom was too slow in looking for them and they are all out of her size!

I love these sandals! I did not have to get used to them. I have high arches so they work well. I like the womanly look over the hiking kind but could easily hike in these. My biggest complaint is the strap that Velcros has come apart on both shoes. The constant strapping on and off have pulled the material away from the Velcro. I have worn these everyday for about a month and half. Comfort is not a problem but they look a little worn with the strapping coming apart. I think if you pay so much they should last longer than that. It may be a defect on this particular pair. Zappos has been great about replacing these, I just hope my next pair hold out longer.

These sandals are adorable and I wanted to love them. They are well cushioned which makes walking in them very comfortable. However, there is not a ton of arch support, they are more flat than contoured. I was willing to overlook the arch support issue, unfortunately, there were two other things about them that are making me return them: 1. As other reviewers stated, the nonadjustable strap underneath the velcro strap is quite snug for those with a high instep. 2. For some reason, my (very short) toenails seem to catch on the seams that run across the toe box of the shoe.

The Keen Rose Sandal is comfortable right out of the box. I am between 8.5 and 9. I ordered 9 and it fits great. This sandal is lighter weight than the Venice but seems to offer similar support. It is versatile...would be appropriate for dinner, walking,the dog and even light hiking. Love the toe protection - just what I have been looking for. Would definitely recommend!

Narrow!! I have owned many pairs of Keens, all in a size 10. Therefore, I disregarded all the reviews that said to order up half a size and I ordered these in a 10. They were much too small! I ordered the 10.5, and they fit length wise, but are still too narrow to work for my feet, unfortunately. I'm disappointed, because I really like the shoe!

I've been wearing Keen sandals for several years because they're the only shoe I can wear straight out of the box. In the last few years, though, they seem to be having problems with quality control. This sandal is a good example: I can't imagine who over at Keen thought that a UK 3.5/Euro 36 is equivalent to a US 6. I usually take a size 5.5; this size 6 is at least a full size too small for me. I could see before even trying them on that they're much smaller than my last size 6 Keens. This mislabeling is a frustrating waste of time. I've ordered a size 7 because I do like the sandal; I just wish I didn't have to go to all this trouble to get a size that fits.

We spent a week in Disney area and going to the parks. I have never owned sandals like these. I love shoes. Now I love these shoes. I wasn't sure they would be that fashionable or comfortable but right out of the box I wore them for a whole day with 5 kids at Magic Kingdom. They were wet, they were in 90 degree weather, they were awesome! Way cuter than I thought they would look. I don't think you will be sorry and added bonus you can easily wear them for fun outdoor play.

I bought the black version last year. Then I loved them so much that I bought the blue, purple and red. This year, I have bought the green and the brown. Keep adding colors (pink anyone?) and I'll keep buying. These are amazing shoes They are pretty and comfy, which is a rare quality in a shoe. I recently started using a standup desk, and I have found these shoes to be the best there. I stood on them for seven hours yesterday without a twinge. They are also good for walking and even wading. And, if they get dirty - you can run them through washer on the gentle cycle. Can a shoe get any better than this?

I had to go up a 1/2 size in these in order to get the arch to hit in the right place for my foot. They are easy to slip on and off, velcro tab fit was right on. My feet are happy. Good arch support, not excellent but good. Makes me think I might need another color. Thanks Zappos!

I am loving these. I only had them on for about an hour, walking around the house, but boy do they feel good! I have a problem foot with a bunion and some bumpy toes that do not lie flat (anyone with that type of problem will know what I mean), and yet the shoes are totally comfortable! Now, that said, the so-called adjustable strap really is not. It fits me just fine and is comfortable, but if I had a very high instep or something there would be no latitude for adjustment. So, a word to the wise - and oh, they re very nice looking, too!

I have the Keen Presidio, which was my introduction to the brand, and I *love* those shoes so when I needed a new pair of sandals this year I opted for Keens again. I'm between an 8.5 and a 9, and I ordered the 8.5 but they were a smidge too small, so I ordered again as a 9 and now they fit perfectly. They're incredibly comfortable for walking all over, my feet stay cool and dry thanks to the sole, and they're super cute. If you are between sizes on this shoe I would recommend going half a size up, because this felt like it ran a little small on me--for comparison, the Presidio fit me perfectly in an 8.5. The one complaint I have is that the ankle strap is a bit snug and not all that adjustable. It doesn't cut into my feet, but I'd like a bit more flexibility in it. But other than that, these shoes are perfect for spring/summer and I can already tell they'll be my daily go-to sandals.
