Sized down in this one
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I love Keens and own several pairs of Keen shoes. I normally wear an 8 but the size 8 of the Delancey Ballerina was way too wide. I have somewhat narrow feet--nothing extreme, but these were just too loose. I exchanged them for a 7.5. I'm wearing the 7.5 but they are a bit tight lengthwise. I love the shoes so I'm keeping them and hoping that they will wear in.
Love these-but not for narrow flat feet
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
These are classic comfort Keen shoes.....but as I have flat narrow feet, they just didn't work even with my inserts as the shoes do not have a removeable insole like some do. Loved the light grey color too. I always wear 8 in Keen and these were true to size for Keens.
Keen sizing issue persists.
I wear a 9B in most shoes, in fact tend to be right on the line between B and C width, so not thin-footed. Keen advises buying a half size up on these, but the 9.5 is far too large width-wise; the issue with this brand is strange production snafus, in one or another sizing category--right length, wrong width; huge toe box, random absence of arch support, etc., etc. I consider this problem a chronic defect of Keens that makes buying them online much more expensive and wasteful when you can't locate try-on pairs easily anymore. Local stores have little inventory, maybe because people try on locally, then buy online. I don't feel a customer should have to pay return shipping on defective products, like D width selling as B width, and will ask for a shipping credit with my refund. Meanwhile, I went ahead and paid to return, for convenience and to just get the darn things off my to-do list. BTW, quality of materials seems on the better side with these; though they're stiff, which might give better support--or just blisters, not sure.
