I've worn Keens for many years and had been wishing there was an open-toed model when I came across this shoe. These are great everyday shoes for walking to and from work, hanging out with my kids, long city walks up and down hills, going to museums. Love that my toes get to breathe and that this model is a bit less clunky that my closed-toe Keens, which I still love. The small piece of elastic on the side provides some extra give. The buckle looks nice, but I would prefer a strong velcro closing .....I teach dance and yoga classes and take my shoes off and on several times a day. The straps across the ball of the foot area occasionally get squished together and hurt the top of my foot, but can be adjusted for instant comfort. I am on my feet all the time and my feet are often sore, and I have bunions....these shoes are perfect for these conditions and are alwasy a comfort to wear! I will be buying another pair!
I love these Keens because they are sooooo comfortable to walk/hike in.
new favorite best thing ever
The first day I wore these, I hiked for an hour and a half on a pretty hilly trail. My feet felt great. They are unbelievably comfortable. The buffalo color is a lighter brown than I expected, but I actually like it better than the dark brown I was expecting. I've also worn them to work on Casual Friday and wish I could wear them every day.
The photos don't show it, but on the big-toe-side of the toe-straps, there's a break in the leather and an elastic insert, which (as long as it's durable) is genius, and the real reason these are so comfortable.
I see you added pics showing a traditional...
I see you added pics showing a traditional metal buckle. Why is the main pic of the sandal different, showing a plastic buckle? Which is it???
great sandals except a bit boaty for narrow feet
Bought them for a three week non-stop 4-country work trip to so-east asia. very light, comfortable - traditional buckle in black, Dressy enough for most meetings. so while I shouldn't, I slip them on over the back heel. with narrow feet, I can get away with it. not great for rainy season travel, but the footbed is very comfortable.
I love these sandals but...my feet are too narrow in the depth and these are not adjustable. These kinds of sandals would be much better suited with adjustable straps. Also, the buckle was not easy to use and took forever to secure.
So, had to return them.
Buckle in black
Hay tres clases de personas: las que saben contar y las que no.
Buckle in Bison
It is metal, not plastic as shown, plastic is what?....LAME!
Love these sandals!
I absolutely LOVE these sandals. I bought them to go to Mexico on vacation. They are more dressy than most Keens and look great with a skirt. I wore them to dinner in the evening and they looked great and super comfortable - the best of both worlds as far as I'm concerned. I got the Bison color and they are a nice light brown color that goes with everything.
good but 4TH or 5TH best to chacos...
1st, 2nd, AND 3rd best are all taken by chacos...and that's what i would recommend, however, these are more for casual. got a pair in men's but they must be too old that they dont carry em anymore. comfy. and actually look better than most keen shoes.
Write your question here...Hi I was wondering...
Write your question here...Hi I was wondering if these shoes could be worn in the water?
I suppose they could be, but they are leather, so not sure how fast they would dry. I would recommend for non-water use.
Love these Keens
Soo comfortable and cute. These Keens fit me really well and are terrific for walking, traveling etc. I have many pairs of Keen sandals including Keen Catalina. The Naples is a bit more dressy and the leather footbed is comfortable. My only comment is I wish that they would come with the snap buckle as the Catalina's. Otherwise they are great.
Prefect for work
I love keen shoes and was looking for something that I could get away with wearing at work. These are so great! They look great and are sooooo comfortable. I am buying a second pair in black!
exactly what I wanted
I actually tried these on when visiting my mom in DC. I loved them but didn't want to pay the $$$. I ordered them here, saved money and got exactly the sandles I wanted.
These are very comfortable and perfect for work!!
Love these sandals!
These sandals are very comfortable. It seems the left is slightly smaller than the right though, not a huge deal. I would have preferred the new version with the quick release buckle instead of the traditional buckle (I'm mostly a slip on shoe kind of gal, so the easier the better). I have naturally have poor shock absorption in my feet so a good shoe/sandal is a must. These are great so far. I haven't walked long distances or long days in them though. So far I would definitely recommend them.
