    Details

    The class V’s are calling your name.

    Pull on the KEEN Women’s Whisper Sandal before you take on the white caps at the Royal Gouge. Keen gave this sandal a heel strap and quickdraw elastic cord to ensure you don’t lose your sandals when you step into rushing water. The polyester webbing with antimicrobial treatment prevents your feet from smelling like a river bed when you’re back at camp, and KEEN’s patented toe protection prevents underwater debris from slowing you down. The EVA footbed keeps your dogs comfortable for the long haul, and the grippy rubber sole helps you stay upright on slippery surfaces.

    The Go To Shoe

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

    Keen is a favorite brand in my family and this shoe doesn't disappoint. I wore out my first pair and this was my replacement. The arch support is great for medium to high arches. The straps on top are easy to loosen or tighten depending on the width of your foot. The toe rubber has saved my toe on many occasions. The coffee liqueur/keen yellow straps are a combination of the canvas type strap and leather looking anchors which give it a durable look and feel. These shoes are so versatile and comfortable that they can be worn around town as well as river wading. Small rocks are able to get in between the straps but I still like them best when hiking trails with rivers and streams. They are also my go to shoe when biking easy flat mountain trails such as the "rails to trails".

    Great shoes for water hikes.

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

    Got these for my girlfriend before we did a river-heavy backpacking trip. She's overly paranoid about getting trench foot. Anyway, these held up really well and she said they were comfy. I wouldn't really recommend them for how she used them, because while they have good traction, they aren't as stable as hiking boots and she slipped around in the river quite a bit. She wears an 8, I ordered an 8, they fit her perfectly.

    Great for water-based lifestyles.

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

    Bought this as a gift for my mom who's usually on the water once summer rolls around, primarily boating on smaller inland lakes and hanging out by the beach of Lake Michigan. She's a big Keen fan and these amphibious sandals work really well, due to their quick-drying design and grippy rubber sole. She's only worn these around the city at this point and loves the comfort and sturdy feel.

    - I'll update once I get some feedback on actual use in wet/coastal environments.

    Great shoe- small rocks get stuck @times

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

    I have used this shoe hiking, tubing down the river, and just around town. I love the shoe, but if you plan on using it where small rocks may be (like certain rivers, or beaches) they will get in the shoe and can be hard to get out! Other than that I take these everywhere! Shoe dries well when wet as well.

    Sandal is shorter then 5 y/o one I have

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    My sandals are starting to show some wear, and I have a narrow foot, so when I saw these on sale I was thrilled. Unfortunately, while they are the same model, they must be made in a different factory b/c they are abt 1/4" - 3/8" shorter than the ones I own, My big toe touches the end of a women's 11 and they do not come any larger. They are a wonderful sandal when they fit.

    Great Sandal

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

    I bought two pair of these. One for my wife and one for my daughter. My wife used her regular size my daughter sized up by 1/2 - she likes to wear socks with her sandalls. Both love the sandalls. My wife took a two week vacation and wore the sandalls every day with no blisters or sore feet - very comfortable.

    Very comfy

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

    I have owned the Keen Venice Sandals in the past, and they were a little clunky feeling and wide. These Whisper Sandals are more narrow and less clunky. U have an average width foot and from the moment I put them on they were perfectly comfortable. They feel light and just right on my feet. I am between an 8 & 8.5 so I ordered the 8.5 and it's perfect.

    Excellent leisure shoe!

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

    Bought a pair of these to go fishing (both off the rocks and at the beach). They look great, were very comfortable from day dot and did not rub. Super easy to put on a tighten. A great shoe to take with you on holidays.

    They're great for walking on the beach (on the wet sand is better. On dry sand, well, they're a semi-closed in shoe so they fill with sand!). On the rocks the grip was fine, but when the treads clogged up with a bit of sand, or it was wet, the grip quality was greatly decreased. Still a 4-star shoe - I'd buy them again.

    I found they run pretty true to size. If you're unsure, measure your foot and order your size right off the sizing chart. Never had an issue doing this at all!

    The Family loves them

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

    Gave these to my mom and sister and they just wore them on the beach the other week. Their comments were "perfect fit, true to size, no slipping or rubbing, comfortable (cushioned sole), and easy to put on."

    These shoes do it all

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

    I've had these shoes for a long time. I originally got them to replace a pair of Keens with the wider bands. I think the thinner bands looks less technical and more trendy. Only problem with these shoes is when they get a rock in them! It gets trapped and hard to get out. When I'm doing light summer hiking I wear these and they will sometimes trap dirt but it's just a minor irritation. They are very easy to wash, most of the time I'm rinse them off after a kayaking trip because they tend to get stinky if you don't wash out the grime.

    great foot bed

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

    From boat to shore, the high instep, and soft webbing make this a great shoe - on land and water. the capped toe saved my feet from several impromptu river swims among very hidden rocks, and the quickdraw lace up make for fast get away when you accidentally sleep past breakfast. I usually wear a size 8 in most shoes - and this was no exception. fit true to size, and i have a medium width foot -and this shoe fit great for me.

    These ARE as comfortable as they say!

      I was looking for a pair of sandals to wear on our Disney trips. As you know, theme parks are nonstop walking and more walking. I wanted something that was comfortable, breathable, and waterproof. Many people recommended Keens. I tried them out by walking around the fair recently. Wow! They are comfortable right off the bat and require no break-in period. The straps and the footbed are both comfortable, and they are so lightweight. I love them and would definitely recommend them to others. Can't wait to get another pair in a different color! I'm not sure if they run a little small, but I found that when I went up 1/2 a size (from 7.0 to 7.5) they were more comfortable

      Not good sizing

        I bought 2 pairs - size 6.5 and 7. Both are superbly good quality and made of good material sole and all around. But the size / fitting is not good for me. My last toe stick out on both pairs, even though the sandal fits well ( will work on both 6.5 or 7) on the front, back and side. If I wear this for y river treks, my toes will get seriously hurt since I will be jammed out even more on pressure when going downward. I returned both pairs with disappointments. Backcountry is great on their customer service as usual. Thank you.

        Shoes to live in...

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I love these sandals. I have always been a big Teva and Chaco fan, but I will only buy Keen in the future. I use these when around the water, to run to the store, and when on hikes. They are by far the most comfy shoes I have owned in hiking/water shoes. One thing to be aware of is the sizing change in Keen. I noticed that I needed to move up a half size from my typical shoe size.

        Keen's are the best, but ...

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Hello to you narrow footed women, these are the sandals for you! I love Keen sandals and I wear them all the time, but each style is different. My favorites are the Newport, but I decided to try the Whispers. The shoes are fantastic (just not for me). I have a wide foot, so these were not ideal. The heel feels like it might slide off, and my feet look like they're squished in the shoes. They are very comfortable so if you can, try on the shoes first to see if they fit and look right for you.

        I'm planning a 20 miler through buckskin...

        I'm planning a 20 miler through buckskin gulch & this time of year, sections of it are waste deep in water. I really don't want to carry two pairs if shoes if possible. Will these hold up?

        Best Answer

        Although it's wet and muddy (and frickn' awesome!), Buckskin Gulch isn't particularly technical. I wear sandals all the time backpacking and if your are comfortable wearing these with a light pack, they shouldn't be a problem in Buckskin. I would, however, recommend a pair of neoprene socks to go with it. That will keep out the sand and other debris and keep you from getting sand abrasions. And if it is cold, they will help with that too. I'm jealous!!!

        Howdy Moe!

        I agree with Patrick!

        Neoprene socks are probably a great idea.

        I've taken these sandals camping a few times here in Utah and also out and about in rivers when paddleboarding.

        In sandy, gritty, rocky environs it is pretty easy to get small pebbles in the shoes.



        You may even consider something that offers a little more protection like these:

        Why do you advertise this shoe at $11.99...

        Why do you advertise this shoe at $11.99 and then when I click on it to choose size, color, etc. the price is $67.46 and up to $90 . I am an 80 year old who has problem feet though I still try to do a lot of walking despite having had both knees replaced. I have been told that these shoes are the best but Social Security does not take into consideration the cost of such shoes today. I was overjoyed when I saw the advertisement and then so very disappointed when I saw the actual price. Not fair to advertise and then not so!

        Best Answer

        Hi Ida,



        I can't imagine where you saw these shoes advertised for $11.99, but if you have a link or can give them the site where you saw that price, it might help to call customer service @ 800-409-4502 and see if there's anything they can do for you. You'll find them to be very helpful and as accommodating as they possibly can be. Backcountry is a class act. Hope this helps.

        I don't know about the pricing issue, and I hope to buy one of the Keen shoes soon. But, Ms. Blumberg....if you want the best cushioned shoe out there, give the Asics Gel a try. I have both hips replaced, am a walker, and these shoes give wonderful cushion. They're a running shoe, but still have wonderful support.

        Could you tell me which stores in Regina, SK sell Keen sandals?

        Write your question here...Does this sandal provide as good foot protection as the Newport? I have had a couple foot injuries this year (fifth metatarsal area) and would like to make sure that the sandal will protect.

        Hey Wen,

        The Whisper does not have the same protection as the Newport, KEEN made the Whisper for people with narrow feet (B width).

        If you need a lot of protection even more than the Newport look at the Arroyo, this is our most supportive sandal.

        Write your question here...I am debating between the Newport H2 and the Whisper. I want them for street walking everyday, walking on the beach (yes this includes right in the water) and some moderate hiking. Which of these is best for these activities?

        Hey Natasha,

        The Newport has more support than the Whisper and would be better for all day hiking and walking. You will find the Newport runs a little small, so go up a half size and it also runs wider then the Whisper. The Newport is a C width and the Whisper is a B width.

        If I am a size 9 in the Keen Coronado, would I be a 9 in these sandals?

        My feet fit very well in my regular size...

        My feet fit very well in my regular size (7 1/2), but when I walk in these my feet slide backwards. Has anyone else had this problem?

        I also have had a problem with my heel sliding back on these when walking. I have to keep stopping and stomping my foot at the toe to move my foot down into the shoe. I have also tried to tighten them so much that it is uncomfortable around my ankle. Very disappointed with this shoe, especially for the money. Maybe because the heel strap is stretchy and not a stationary heel back like on the Venice shoe. It just keeps stretching and stretching. Major design flaw! Try again Keen, I'll stick with the Venice.

        I had the same problem. I've used them for light to moderate hiking when traveling abroad and my heel slipped back and hit rocks countless times. I guess I should have worn hiking sneaks, but I really thought these would do better and was trying to pack light. I could never cinch the strap tight enough to keep my foot/toes toward the front of the shoe. I would not suggest them for hiking, especially hiking in wet areas. They were very comfortable for walking in, however, and dried fast.

        Lee,The Newport only comes with a velcro strap in the Kid's model. Keen does have a massive collection I'm sure you will find something that will give you the comfort you know and can quickly be slipped on.

        The Keen San Sebastian is a convertable mesh shoe/sandal. The elastic back heel strap can swing over the top of the shoe to allow it to be worn as an open-back, slide-style sandal. Fairly breathable, too. Or you can wear it with the heel strap in place for more security. Lots of flexibility and comfort!

        [The San Sebastian tends to run true to size, so no need to order a half size up from your regular size like you might need to with the Newport or Venice.]

        I have small-ish feet, and actually have bought the youth version of the Newports. If you wear a 6 in Women's, order a 4 youth, if you wear a 7, order the 5 youth, and if you wear an 8, get the 6 youth. That's as big as they come. But I normally wear the Keen women's size 7 and then youth 5 fit me great, are cheaper, and come in some funky colors! Good luck! The Ormond and the new Keen Whisper Slide might be a good choice too.
