I have had my Keens for 2 years and I love them. they are supportive enough to my feet to go for hikes but water, specifically the river is where they really shine. the feature that makes them so usefull in the river is one you cant even see in the pictures, the tread on the bottom of the shoe is siped (like they do to snow tires) to provide added grip on slick or moss covered rocks or other surfaces. that was the one thing that really impressed me when i got them home the first day. other than that they are very well built and look cool (in their own way) too
My mom bought home a pair of the pink ones for the lake and they served their purpose. They fit great and i didnt have trouble keeping them on while on the tube, but the color did turn murky after a couple trips(which i guess is to be expected.) only thing i would suggest would be to have other color selections. serve as great lake shoes, and they are very durable.
For my husband. He is hubris and thinks he is related to Chuck Norris... in that he think the earth revolves around him. He had his first pair of Keens, which he still wears to this day and are falling apart at the heels. It's time to get a new pair. Keens are his favorite. He owns 8 pairs. His first pair will be dispatched.
I purchased some Keen Newport H2 sandals last night (b1242900) in the "Raven/Comfrey" color. It looks like the order went through, but when I look online today, it says they are sold out in my size. I just wanted to make sure that the order went through. Can you let me know please?
