Waterproof protection with style

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Great winter everyday shoes, well constructed with some protection from the wet and snow while still breathable. Still can't vouch for the durability after only a month but so far so good. My only complaint, at least for my foot is that the ankles run a little high and rub under my medial and lateral malleolus. This was corrected with an extra foot bed insert.

Comfy

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

The shoes were comfortable and broke in the first day. A nice change from the usual brand he wears. Keen quality.

Just as I thought they would be... true to color.. true to size and true to comfort.. Keen is Keen.

formal casual

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Nice combination of dressy but casual. Also pretty functional if you need to get in the dirt. Took a while to break in but the leather holds up nice. Only problem is the stitching in the tongue came loose but that was after two years. Laces are still mint. They are pretty heavy due to the huge amount of rubber on the sole. Also they run a little wide - good for a people with toe box problems.

Sorry but I had to return these shoes.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have had excellent luck with Keen sandals so I thought the Austins would be the ideal light hiking boot. I found them very stiff and uncomfortable. It may not be the boots fault . I have put too many miles on my feet, too many marathons, too many traithlons and maybe too much hiking. I am now trying the Keen Finlay. Here's hoping for better results.Dealing with Backcoutry is a very pleasant experience and I have no problems with them.

Amazing shoes...amazing customer service

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought these shoes for an extended trip to the Dominican Republic. We'll be doing some light backpacking, and tons of walking on varied terrain. They are perfect. Water-resistant, incredible support, and great moisture-control. They look great, and feel great. This is my new go-to pair of shoes. Keen customer service and support was fantastic. Initially I ordered the Nopo boot...which upon arrival I realized was a completely inappropriate selection for where I was going (waaaaay too hot). Despite the mistake being completely my own, Backcountry.com promptly shipped me a exchange (the Austins, which I LOVE)...trusting that I would in turn ship back the Nopo boots. I was very impressed with this...that kind of customer service is few and far-between these days. When they say "no questions asked" return policy, they mean it! I will certainly buy from Backcountry.com again.

Very happy

So happy with the product that I have purchased two more pairs on Keen Shoes. On my feet all day every day in the crappy north east weather these things are great!

Everything I hoped for

  • Gender: Male

Great shoe. Comfortable right out of the box. I like to stand, and walk in them. Big toe box

Great City/Casual Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I took only this pair of Keen Austins to Europe for a 10 day trip. They are such a great, versatile shoe. I did some light hiking in rural southern France, as well as museum touring in Paris. They handled all the situations well. With the black version, they blend in really well with dark pants for dinner. All around awesome show, really comfortable. I normally wear a 9.5 but only a 10 would fit. I would order up a half size, as the Keen website says to do. I recommend without hesitation.

Awesome Comfort

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The KEEN Austins are very comfort after I put in my own inserts. They're true to size for my 11 1/2 thin feet!

4th PAIR!!!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am a follwer of Keen and these are my forth pair I have owned and I love them!!

Set to buy my fourth pair

I bought my first pair of these five or six years ago. When the soul wore out, I bought two more, different colored pair. They are well made, cool-looking, and are without a doubt the most comfortable shoe I have owned as far back as I can remember.

5 5

Yep,they are KEEN shoes!

If you are in the market for unique, attractive and most importantly comfortable shoes look no further.
Never mind the copies being spit out by rival, big name companies that noticed this shoe company was beginning to leave their mark out there.
These are great shoes. I have multiple pairs of a variety of KEENS and these do not disappoint.
Try it, you'll like it!

Happy/Sad Keen Experience

Bought my first pair of Austins, loved them so much I bought a second pair and stashed them away. The first pair lasted a long time, and I still have them. I broke out the second pair when the first was pretty beat. Wore them for several weeks and one started to squeek badly, perhaps a delamination somewhere?

In any case I wrote to customer service and they NEVER replied. Clearly there is some quality issue, and it is extremely disappointing that the company doesn't even acknowledge a communication from a loyal customer. Much as I loved them I don't think I'll be buying them again. I would beware of indifferent customer service.

Hot feet

I've never owned a pair of Keen shoes, but heard rave reviews. So, when I needed a pair of adequate casual shoes to hoof it around town during a recent project these seemed a viable candidate. They are comfortable and I put a lot of miles on them in the past month. My only dig would that if you have hot feet, these shoes don't breathe very well and seem hotter than most shoes I have owned. I am a hot footed person, but these seem hotter than usual. It wouldn't prevent me from owning another pair however. Just add a nice pair of socks to the mix.

Real Happy with these

I'm on my second pair of these shoes. They are real comfortable and are a good year around shoe. They are flat that is for sure, less heel than most shoes I wear. My only real complaint about these is the laces wear out pretty quick and pulling at the top has no affect on the lower laces, you have to go through the laces like a boot to get them snug. Overall, good shoes and I probably will keep a pair in my arsenal for awhile.

Great shoes

These shoes are comfortable and fit perfectly. They look great on. Excellent shoe for a guy who is fussy about his feet.

I want the SPD cleat compatible version...

I want the SPD cleat compatible version of these. How do I order those?

Responded on

Backcountry.com do not carry the Austin Pedal. Your best bet is to go on the KEEN site and order directly.
