I will keep buying these until I have all the colors I need! The arch support fits me just right and they are so comfortable on my wide feet, bunions and all. In most other shoes I have to order up, but I am an 8 1/2, and these are true to size, fit perfectly. I have almost worn my black ones out, after over 3 years of heavy use. Love these shoes, love Zappos! And love Keen.

Everyone raved about the Keen Venice as the best shoe for hiking and swimming. I found it to be less than okay. I have narrow feet and struggled to find the right size. I began by ordering a 9 1/2 (which is my normal size). But sent it back for a 10 because Keen said it ran 1/2 size small. I wish I had stuck with the 9 1/2. After wearing them for an extended weekend hiking trip I had blisters and my arches ached. They are now relegated to garden work, canoeing trips, and any water sports where I need a shoe that stays on. An awful waste of money in my opinion. My husband wears his Newports religiously and swears by them so for some feet they rock. Bottom line - if you have narrow feet, do not buy these you will be disappointed.

he Venice is great because it protects toes while still being well ventilated and fairly supportive (for a sandal). Get this model--the one that is not waterproof--if you don't like having the soles of your feet stay damp against the rubber footbed. These artificial suede footbeds keep feet dryer, yet will dry fairly quickly if you wash them or wear them in the rain.

Love these shoes. My feet are a little on the wide side, but these shoes fit perfectly. Sometimes I need a wide shoe, sometimes not.

Early Days - I don't really have much of an opinion of these yet. I've only worn them for brief periods. They do feel comfy and keep my toes from getting bonked when I'm outdoors, or at the grocery store. I have to say, I think they are as ugly as sin, but I'm trying to find a great pair of walking shoes for a trip to Europe, so I'm willing to sacrifice looks for comfort. I'd rather be the eccentric lady in the weird shoes with the happy feet and back than be fashionable and in pain. I do think they run a bit small.

I bought these shoes for a trip to Arizona. Most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. I usually need orthoditics, but was able to wear these with no break-in period for days without any soreness what-so-ever. Anyone that has trouble finding a comfortable walking shoe should try these. I will buy Keens again!

Ordered these based on good reviews. Used for trip to Maui - took a 3 hour hike through dense forest, steep rocks, waterfall climb and jump. These shoes were just perfect. Most of my hike was during rainstorm, and these really held up to the mud. I would highly recommend these for anyone interested in using for extreme hiking.

Everyone seems to say these run 1/2 size small, but these shoes run true to size for me. I'm a size 11, and the 11 fit perfectly. Good thing because there is no size beyond that! I'm very impressed with how rugged and sturdy these are and the comfort they provide. I bought these for an upcoming trip to Kauai where I plan to do lots of hiking. I wanted something sturdy enough for hiking but waterproof enough for crossing rivers, or dealing with sudden rain showers. I also tried the Newport shoe, but the Venice was more comfortable to me and a little big lighter weight feeling, which I liked. I have not put them to the test yet, but out of the box, they seem like they will be awesome. They're very comfortable walking around the house at least!

This is my first pair of Keens and I am instant fan. These shoes are incredibly comfortable. I haven't had a chance to test out the waterproof feature yet, but I don't think I will be disappointed. I usually wear a size 7.5 but I read the reviews and ordered a size 8. The 8 fits perfect. I ordered Keen sandals for my entire family and all of them had to go a half size up. I would anticipate a half size to a full size larger than what you normally wear.

These are the best shoe for walking without wearing tennis shoes. I wore them in Mexico for several hours a day and my feet never got hot. I now have 2 pair! Not one place on my foot was sore.

I wear a 7 in a regular shoe and an 8 in a running shoe. I got this in 7.5 and thought one foot could have used a bit more length but kept them because I didn't have time to order an 8. I wanted a shoe that I could remove easily for check in at the airport and these were perfect even though I needed to sit down to get them back on but they went on easily. Even though I might have needed a half size larger, I had these on for 12 hours for 4 days with a good deal of walking (and two days of air travel) and my toes were okay - no bruises or soreness. Still, I might recommend a full size up. I haven't tried washing them but need to and that is another thing I like about this particular Keen. My foot is a little narrow and these fit just right so a wider foot might not fit this shoe. I tried on many Keens and each fit a little different.

I saw these Keen Venice sandals advertised and decided to take a chance. I am an American living in Nigeria as a missionary. I am on my feet quite a lot during the day and they are very comfortable. Due to the heat and humidity my feet perspire and they dry quickly. Also during the summer months we get lots of rain and the water is no problem. I wore them on a trip to Italy last summer and they were great for slipping off and on going through airport security. I also found them comfortable for Rome's cobble stone streets. I love, love, love these Keen Venice sandals and have ordered more in different colors.

I usually wear a 9 and ordered a 9 and 9.5 to try. The 9.5 was the best fit. I wore these for six days of walking at Disney World in September. They were great! I had one spot where the foot-bed rubbed the bottom of my foot, but it got better. I would highly recommend for warm-weather walking!

Love Keen, and love these sandals. Great with jeans, and an awesome way to work around my place of employment's 'no flip flop' rule. Stylish, and comfy. Im usually a 9.5 and take a 10 in Keen's, though.

As always received my purchase from Zappos within 1 day. Yay, thank you. I love these shoes I have a wide foot and they are the most comfortable shoes I wear in the summer. This was my 2nd pair. I just want to mention that the Black Olive is more Olive then black. The picture is misleading. Definitely a olive green. Still love them and the sale price cant be beat.

After wearing my first pair since 2009, I just ordered another pair in a different color. I am going walking and I know these are a winner, but I wanted a different color. The only thing I do not like about these shoes is that they will ruin your pedicure on your big toe. Other than that, I absolutely love these shoes! I would like to have solid color without the trim colors. They stretch a little. I have plantar fasciitis really badly, and I can wear these shoes without any added support. It does not look like I would be able to, but I do it everyday! I love you, Zappos!

Keen! Not the best looking shoe, but very possibly the most comfortable. It's truly easy to wear all day long; great to wear indoors and out. And the tread is open enough so that dirt, grit and sand doesn't get tracked into the house.

Love my Keens. My daughter had a pair and I said, how can you wear these? But then I tried the Venice and walked all over the first time I wore them. Just love the support. My feet need the support for walking on pavement. More comfortable than my walking shoes. Great service from Zappos. I have a smaller foot and it is hard to find my size locally. I ordered a size 6 in these can wear 5.5 or 6.

I looked for this color in a keen shoe for a few months - in a few different towns in California! But couldn't find it. Then I looked online at Zappos. Not only did they have the color, there was no tax and no shipping costs! It was a win-win-win! As for the shoes, I have been wearing Keens since I discovered them years ago. I have a wide foot - and most of the Keen foot beds, fit my feet...and are extremely comfortable and provide maximum support.

Very comfortable shoe and the inside seams are well covered so they will not scratch my bare feet. I've been using them for exercise walking for a couple of weeks now (daily) and they did not need breaking in and have felt comfortable from the first day.
