These shoes are really cute and I got tons of compliments. Beware though, I returned my first pair because they were defective-the material was separating from the soles in the same spot on both shoes. I did end up getting another pair because I liked them a lot, hoping they don't break again. You might need some heel cushion with these, especially if you wear them barefoot. The blue color is quite bright but it helps to use the off white laces that come with them. I originally had the violet quartz color which was beautiful!

I haven't had a chance to wear these boots in the elements yet but can tell they will be great for the Pacific Northwest winters. Cute with a skirt or jeans. My only gripe is I have a hard time zipping them all the way up. I have muscular calves so maybe that's why but I'm hoping they will strech a bit. I did get a half size larger to accomodate smartwools, glad I did that.

I have never been disappointed by Chaco. I wanted to give the Pedshed's a try for a cooler weather shoe. They are obviously a very high quality shoe with a neat design & comfy. My problem is the pedsheds are harder to find in the wide sizes. I am bummed backcountry didn't have any wides available. I had to return my regular width ones & buy a wide size from another website...I guess I should have known that I needed a wide size since my Z2 sandals are wides, but I figured I'd give the regular width a shot. Lesson learned-anyone who wears Chaco wides are probably going to have to get a wide Pedshed unless you're planning on wearing them barefoot all the time-I just want to be able to wear smartwools with them.

Yet another Patagonia product I love! I ordered size 7 because that's my normal Patagonia size, however, they felt a bit too big for me. I like my shoes fitted & rarely wear socks, so I sent back for a 6.5, which was a bit snug at first but now that they're broken in, they fit me like a glove. Very comfy & cute. Beware that the colors appear MUCH brighter on the internet than they really are. The red is really a dark color, burgundy/wine like. I wanted red shoes & these were too dark for me. The color I exchanged for was the "mud" color, also much darker in real life. You can dress these shoes up or down. The sole is great & quite grippy. Would make a great shoe for people who work on their feet a lot.

i have these in the indigo blue which is a nice color. they are comfy! i am pretty short (5'2") and they aren't too long for me-i got a size 4. they make your butt look nice too! i agree with the comment that the waist is loose but definitely not a problem with a belt. dress these up or down.

these are the pair that made me fall in love with keens. i have a slightly wider foot than normal-these definitely are comfortable for the wider foot. doesn't take much to break these in, they are pretty comfortable from day 1. give it extra protection with a waterproof/care treatment. good for dog walks & hanging around town. i have the driftwood/pampas color and love it!

i ended up buying these trays after going back and forth because of the price. the truth is these trays are extremely durable, has the easiest lockdown system, very secure, and won't torque your bikes when driving down a rough road. it's worth the extra money to buy these. not a bike that wouldn't fit on these, my cruiser bike is no problem. i see these trays lasting me a long, long time.

this pack is great! i love the gel inserts, carrying this pack is actually comfortable! it fits the feminine figure great. you can stuff a lot into it. all the adjustments help you get the perfect fit. i highly recommend this for any female who is going backpacking and those who just want a comfortable pack to travel with.

great for more advanced climbers & women with a more narrow foot. if you are a beginner or have a wider foot, i would steer clear of these and go for the la sportiva mythos. i recommend going to a sporting store & trying climbing shoes on before purchasing on the internet so you can figure out a size & brand that's right for you.

i got my usual patagonia size & they fit well. seems like they have a little extra room for thicker socks and still would fit. they are comfy! these look very cute with a pair of jeans cuffed up. i'm looking forward to putting these boots on after a hard day at the mountain. if they live up to patagonia standard, they will last you season after season.

i have 3 pairs of chaco Z/2s! awesome for walking around town & i wear them hiking all the time. easy clean-just scrub on them in the kitchen sink then air dry. the price is worth it because they last & you can send them to chaco and they will resole them for you. if your feet are even slightly wider than normal, i would recommend finding a wide size. i have small bunions and the wide size fits me much more comfortably. my advice to first time users is wear them for short periods at first till your feet adjust to the feel.

i wear it working out at the gym and for other athletic activities. i also love wearing it underneath a thin t-shirt. it looks very cute under oversized dressy shirts w/shoulders exposed. i think the design is very pretty & it's very comfortable. i got 1 size larger than i normally would because i wanted a more comfortable fit & it still does a good support job.
