These are not easy to slip on my foot, as the back heel strap doesn't have much play. I have to loosen the front straps all the way and it is still a bit of a battle. This isn't a reason not to buy these--they are GREAT shoes and it is worth the hassle. If yours are tight to get on, don't give up, just loosen them all the way. They have improved a little over time.

Did I mention these are great shoes? I was looking for something that could handle getting wet but could also take me over trails and off trails. From beach to mountain, these fit the bill with ease. They are a little heavy when you hold them, but don't feel heavy to wear.

I had been forewarned about the stinky feet issue but decided to try them and see what happened. For both my son and I the stinky feet really was an issue! After hiking around Yellowstone & the Tetons in them my feet were all but banned from the family car. At our next destination I stopped at a drugstore & picked up some foot deodorizing powder that worked well to take care of the problem--I just put some in each time I took my Keens off. (Dr. Scholl's Odor Destroyer Shoe Shot in a yellow container). If I am not wearing them day after day they don't seem to smell too much and I can forego the powder. Washing them didn't help much, just took care of the immediate problem but they would still get stinky after a while of wearing them.

I ditto the suggestion to try on a few more pairs if the first pair you try on is the right size but not a completely perfect fit, as they can vary some, even the left from the right in the same box. It is worth it to get that perfect fit--the shoes are fantastic if you are on your feet for extended periods (e.g., healthcare shifts).
