Nothing but Keen's for us
I have three very rough and tumble boys and we blow through shoes around here. I started buying Keen's for them a few years ago because of the rubber toe guard. This not only provides extra protection, but all slows down the rate of wear when my kids inevitably use their shoes as bike brakes. I bought this particular model for my 7 year-old six months ago and they're still going strong. We always outgrow our Keen's before we wear them out.
