Keen Sandals Offer Support and Comfort

by PeggyHazelwood

Keen sandals let your feet be happy while you look hip and stylish.

You've seen Keen sandals. They're those open air "shoes" that are more than sandals. Keen sandals are sort of a blend of sandals and shoes. The support they offer makes them more than your run-of-the-mill sandal, but these shoes are airy making them great shoes for hot weather or for anyone whose feet get too hot in shoes and socks.

Since Keen sandals offer support that many regular sandals don't, they are perfect for all sorts of outdoor activities. And they come in all sizes, too, so everyone from kids to adults can wear them and love their feet! Keen sandals cost more than cheaper shoes, but they hold up well and offer needed support.

My Keen Sandals--Why I Love These Shoes!

Me and My Combination Last

I have weird feet. I know many people do, too, but mine have always been a real pain. My feet, I was told from a young age when trying in vain to find a shoe that fit, require a shoe that is a combination last.


Well, a last is the mold or form used to make shoes. A combination last means the width of the shoe is wider than the heel, in proportion to each other. In other words, my heels are narrow and tiny compared to my big, fat, wide feet. I've been known to step right out of shoes because my heel doesn't have that grip potential needed to stay in the shoe.

That meant I had to either wear clogs (no heel to slip out of!) or shoes that tie or have an adjustable strap of some sort to wedge my foot in tight so the heel would stay put.

Keen sandals offer a little bungee cord-looking strap that can be cinched up good and tight!

Keen Sandals Run True to Size

As I've aged, my feet have grown. I used to wear a 7-1/2 size shoe, then an 8, now depending on the shoe, I have to buy an 8-1/2 or 9. Ugh.

But, my Keen sandals are an 8-1/2 and fit great.

Reviewers on Amazon comment that when they've bought Keens online, the size has been a true fit, making buying online a convenient option.

Why Millions of People Love Keen Sandals

Great Outdoor Shoes

Keen sandals are perfect for outdoor activities like hiking, water sports like canoeing or boating, and general fun in the sun. Unlike some chunky-style sandals, these are lightweight and so comfortable!

This feature makes them great for wearing to just hack around. They are waterproof, meaning you can traipse through rivers and creek beds and you won't ruin your shoes.

Keen sandals offer several styles for men and women, as well as a good selection for kids. Check out backpacks to go with your Keen sandals.

The padded multiple straps look like they would be comfortable.

Sounds perfect for hiking, a favorite pastime of mine. I'd like to do it barefoot but OUCH that doesn't work, these keen sandals seem as if they'd be as near to barefoot as possible but with comfort, protection and support. Love Them! Thanks for the review.

They look like they would be something a person could get used to. Sandals are usually very comfortable.

I will definitely buy a pair of Keen sandals as soon as I can. :)

Like you, I also have large feet! I love those sandals and have a similar pair that I've worn for years. They seem to last for ever. Great article - thanks!

My son wears these all year round. The only time he isn't in them is at work--and then only because they aren't allowed!
