Whitewater rapids to lazy river floats.
Designed for the needs of river guides and professional paddlers, the Keen Men's Zambezi Sandal sports an amphibious design that's equally suited for charging Class IV rapids and meandering down lazy rivers. Its rubber toe cap acts as a protective barrier between your feet and slippery riverbeds strewn with toe-crunching rocks and logs. TPU-reinforced upper panels resist abrasion for long-lasting use.
Perhaps most impressive with this river-friendly sandal is its one-pull adjustable strap. This system consists of a high-strength strap that easily adjusts with a single pull for a secure, dialed fit. Plus, this sandal releases with the simple push of a buckle for quick bailing.
Not using these in the water on a daily basis? No problem. The sandal's textured EVA footbed cradles your feet in all-day comfort with its anatomical arch support. Smooth microfiber strap lining wicks moisture for quick-drying, non-irritating performance. You'll also find a textile-reinforced rubber sole with large traction lugs for sure-footed grip over slippery stream beds and smooth urban surfaces alike.

I had never tried Keen before so I was a little nervous about ordering but I love these shoes. They are lightweight, very flexible, and just super comfortable. I dumped my Chaco's because they were so heavy. The only downside to the Keen's is that the strap is a little on the short side, but then again I have a VERY wide foot with a very high arch and instep so it takes every bit of strap to encase my foot.
I'll be buying more real soon.
Big for size

Love Keen products. This particular shoe does not fit well if you have narrow feet. It rubs, despite correct tightening, along the inner arch. I wear an 11 1/2 running shoe, and the 11 in this was huge.
Comfortable and easy to put on and off
The one clip makes it easy to get these on and off. Have not used them in the water yet but they look like they will handle it no problem. I like the leather around the strap. Im a 10.5 and went for an 11, 10 was a bit too small in the toe box.
