I am very disappointed in this craftsmanship of this style. I have this same style that I was replacing because it finally wore out. This is definitely not the same quality.
Not the shoe I thought I was ordering, but true to its name it is UNEEK. First time out of the box I was not sure, but when you tell walking around the house. The first trip out, they felt great. Getting now where it feels I am barefoot, a feeling I crave with my Peripheral Neuropathy. Only down side is I have a high arch ant the elastic structure is probably designed for a normal arch, it is a little tight. Bottom line I like them, good value, benefit of the coolness of a sandal but with a heel cup.
Once I found I needed a whole size smaller than my usual 8.5, and had worn it enough to break in the toe box (which was a bit snug), I loved them. But what an ordeal to get there! I always get Keen's in 8.5 so didn't order my usual extra size in case. It was huge. Had to return for an 8. That, too, was too big. Finally got the 7.5, and they work. Love the style and coolness for summer. Not so clunky as many Keen's. My request of Zappo's is this: if you notify Keen of the apparent oversizing of this model, and IF they begin to resize them, PLEASE notify customers on the shoe page that the shoe has been resized downward akin to normal Keen sizing. That way we'll know what size to order and save postage money.
I wanted to like this shoe but the toe box was enormous. Felt like my feet were swimming, may want to order a half size down.
These are great hiking shoes! Very rugged! Very comfortable! :)
