I bought my first pair of Keens 3 years ago
and I have been hooked ever since. My true test for any shoe
is whether it is "Disney worthy". That is to say whether I
get blisters or tired feet and my Keens passed the test with
flying colors. My husband and I go to Walt Disney World
every year and I would never go without my Keens ever again.
I usually wear flip-flops or some type of mule. It didn't
take long to get used to the back strap on these shoes. They
are more comfortable than they look. Have to agree with
another reviewer that, in spite of this shoe being a sandal,
the sole of the shoe tends to heat up your feet after
awhile. Now that the weather is cooling down a little, these
sandals can be worn with thin, no-show socks, and that cuts
down the heat factor considerably.
I have bad feet; bunions, fallen arches, proantion and heel
spurs. It is difficult to find comfortable and fashionable
shoes that work with me and my foot problems. I am also on
my feet most of the day so I need support and versatile
footwear. I have been impressed with the Keen Newport. I can
walk long distances or hike with them. I wear them at home,
at the beach and on vacation. In addition, on casual days at
work, they're the ones I choose. I am anxious to take them
with me to Hawaii in November, where they'll take me all
over the island and in the water too. What a great product!
I love these shoes. I could only afford to purchase one pair
of shoes this summer that I could wear to work in every day
(I am a jewelry artist and therapist) and am on my feet alot
during the course of a day. I wear my Keens all day, from
making jewelry to seeing clients. This is what I love about
them, I dont feel like I have to change my shoes when I put
on my therapist hat because they look great! What more could
I ask for?
