    The Water's 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.

    • Enjoy adventures in and out of the water with this technical sandal
    • Synthetic webbing for durability and quick drying comfort
    • Toe Guards protect feet from rough terrain
    • Elastic drawcord closure for a secure fit and easy on and off
    • EVA midsole offers cushioning and support
    • Rubber sole for durability and reliable traction

    Great Sandals

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These sandals are so comfortable. They fit true to size and are so versatile. I would definitely recommend these to someone looking for a good pair of water shoes.

    Great! All around

      The sandals are fantastic. I do not have a wide foot and i was able to wear them out of the box no issue on a 4 mile walk. I purchased my normal size. Backcountry was great as well. My package was delivered to the wrong address by UPS but they overnighted a new pair. Couldn't be more pleased overall.

      Comfortable function.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These shoes are great. They're so versatile. Great shoes for small hikes with streams, the beach, casual summer use, gardening. I love these shoes, they're super comfortable and easy to clean. They're soft but are supportive. They don't look too "sporty" either - they're still cute while being practical.

      Most versatile shoe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      My wife loves these! She buys a new pair for each kid each year (both because they grow out of them and because they wear them so much) and now has gotten one for herself. She wears them on hikes, in the water, and around town. They are quick, easy, comfortable, have fantastic traction, and the color choices are great.

      GREAT

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I needed a pair of sandals that can be worn in water and still protect my toes from rock damage in the water and on the trails. These are perfect!

      Love!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I bought these because I wanted something less than a tennis shoe but more than a flip flop for our Canada trip. This pair of sandals is exactly that. They are stylish, durable, and the colors are beautiful ( bought the raven/rose). Initial impressions for support are promising. True to size. Can't wait to pack them in my suitcase!

      Great Gift

        I bought these as a gift for a family member who needs great support and comfort - these were a hit. she says she never wants to take them off! True to size and so many fun color ways to choose from

        Best Sandals I've Worn

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 9

        Bought these as a gift for my mom and she loves them! She said they're super soft as opposed to some water sandals that can be rough against your feet and that they're the most comfortable water shoes she's every worn! She wears a size 9 and these fit true to size.

        Super comfy and practical

        • Fit: True to size
        • Height: 0'0"
        • Weight: 0lbs

        No need to break these sandals in. They are ready to go right out of the box. Very versatile for hiking, around town or in the water. They dry quickly and are easy to clean if they get dirty. The only problem I can see is that the one with a white footbed show dirt more readily then the darker footbed. However, they are super easy to clean up. Great all around sandal.

        Gave as a gift

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: Runs large

        Unfortunately they were a bit too big so I gave them to my boyfriend's daughter. She loves them. Wears them running errands as well as our weekend hiking adventures. I'll be ordering my own pair as soon as I can.

        So comfy and durable!

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

        They're not the most aesthetically pleasing but I love these shoes. Super comfortable, great traction; they beat any other sandle for day hiking. Perfect camp shoes. My only complaint with these are that if you get them wet, expect them to be wet for at least 12 hours.

        Super comfortable.

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

        These are perfect water shoes. They are SO comfortable. Perfect for working and exploring around water. The grip is great, and they don't ever feel sloppy when wet. They fit true to size.

        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.

        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.

        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...

        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,...

        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 own about 12 pair of Keen's and always get a size 9. This is the very first shoe from Keen that seems too large for me. I would have to assume it is the Whisper--but I'm curious if something else is going on.

        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.

        Is there a Keen sandal with a velcro strap? I find the other strap type difficult to get over my heel in a hurry.

        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. Please take a look at a few other Keen styles that may work for you.#1 choiceKeen Ormond - Similar to the Newport without a back, just slide and go!http://www.backcountry.com/store/KEN0245/KEEN-Ormond-Slide-Sandal-Womens.html?Keen Mystic - A little more rugged with a cliphttp://www.backcountry.com/store/KEN0127/KEEN-Mystic-Sandal-Womens.html?

        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.
