Thank you for your feedback.
Fit true to size and she tells me they're comfortable.
They fit true to size and was impressed right when I took them out of the box.
He has even used these for moderate climbing of rocky bluffs and the grip is strong.

Rugged, Kid-Friendly Design

Designed for active kids, the Gypsum is rugged and sporty. Available in a range of easy-to-coordinate neutral tones, the Gypsum has a low-profile design with tonal stitching, fun pops of color, and a laidback slip-on style.

Leather-and-Mesh Upper

Gypsum's mesh-and-leather upper is durable enough to stand up to the rigors the playground. It's also breathable, so growing feet feel comfy, even when things heat up.

Keen Dual-Climate Outsole

To ensure a steady step no matter the season, the Gypsum has an innovative dual-climate rubber outsole. When temperatures drop, this outsole hardens to provide exceptional traction by gripping packed snow and other terrain, helping to prevent slips and falls.

And because this outsole is non-marking, you won't have to worry about black marks on floors at school or home.

Lace-Capture System for a Secure Fit

For a secure, stay-in-place fit, this shoe has a lace-capture system to keep loose laces from getting in the way.

Easy-Clean Materials

The Gypsum is easy to care for. The mesh areas can be cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge and regular household soap, while the leather can be periodically treated with leather cleaner or conditioner.

Keen: A Story of Hybrid Innovation

Keen began in 2003 with an inspired sandal design that combined comfort and toe protection. This radical design departure for sandals spawned the overriding Keen philosophy of hybrid innovation--striving to create new possibilities and to discover and implement original ideas.

Keen products put an emphasis on the joys of play. At the same time, Keen believes in the value of working hard to give back to the community. To that end, the company has partnered with non-profit organizations around the world to help get youth into the outdoors, protect land for its environmental and recreational value, and to give bikes to kids in need.

    This is the absolute best shoe I have ever purchased, hands-down. My son is almost 8 and walks in the inside of his feet, as a result he needs to wear orthodics and the inside sole and heel of his shoes wear out quickly. For years we went through the process of buying him a new pair of shoes every 4-6 weeks, and we tried everything! We tried $40 Sketchers, $30 KSwiss, $60 StrideRites, $12 cheapies. None of his shoes lasted longer than 6 weeks, and then a friend suggested we try Keens.

    I balked at first, Keens are not inexpensive shoes, but I figured that spending $60 would be worth it if the shoes lasted longer than a few weeks. We first bought him the Keen Alamosa shoes. I was very impressed that after 6 weeks the soles of the shoes looked almost unworn, but unfortunately the toe had separated from the sole and the lace was almost worn through. I went to the Keen website and learned that they offer a 30 day warranty. Knowing the shoes were out-of-warranty I contacted them anyhow and explained the situation. Within 24 hours Keen sent me a gift code worth the value of the shoes (about $50) so I could replace them. I decided to upgrade to the Gypsum Hiking Shoe as it has more toe protection, and even though the total came to around $60 with shipping, Keen covered the extra cost! And they sent me a second pair of shoe laces to boot (Keen offers free lifetime shoe lace replacement!)

    My son has been wearing the Gypsums for about 6 months now, he's to the point where he is outgrowing them and is ready to move on to another pair. My son has not outgrown a pair of shoes since he was an infant, I am amazed. I bought my daughter a pair of Keens after seeing how well they held up with my son, and I plan on replacing all of my children's shoes with Keens for as long as I can.

    Size: 11 M US Little KidSpecial Size Type: Little Kid (4-8 Years)Color: Chocolate Brown/Mineral Yellow Verified Purchase
    My son is currently wearing size 10 shoes and he is starting to outgrow them which is the reason I bought this size 11 KEEN shoes. I received the product from Amazon yesterday and I found out that it's exactly the same size as my son's old size 10 shoes and not bigger. I'm planning to request Amazon for an exchange and get the size 12 because it appears that KEEN's sizes for this model is 1 size smaller.

    (Follow up for my previous review) I have received the size 12 shoes and it fits my son perfectly. This pair of shoes is aesthetically beautiful, appears to be very durable and the quality of craftmanship is superb. If you're planning to buy your child a Keen Gypsum I recommend ordering 1 size bigger.

    Size: 6 M US Big KidSpecial Size Type: Big Kid (8-12 Years)Color: Gargoyle/Purple Heart
    First, this shoe is awesome. My toddler and preschooler were wearing through one pair of shoes EVERY MONTH when I finally decided to go with Keen & its rugged sole & toe cap. It's been wonderful! They look fabulous. And the lacing is perfect for littles, with nothing to tie.

    I was really surprised to have to buy a size 10 for my younger son, as my older son is currently in a size 10 Keen Skyline. Then I put the two shoes sole-to-sole, and this one is easily an inch shorter than the Skyline. It doesn't make the shoe any less awesome, but know that you may need to buy a size up.

    Im an adult with small wide feet. Also very hard on my shoes, worse than a young boy. I have had a hard time finding shoes that hold up to what I put them through. This is my 3rd pair of keen shoes. I get more than a years wear out of them. I have bought more expensive shoes and lucky I get 6 months. I also have 3 pair of Keen sandels the oldest pair is now 4 years and still look like new. I now only buy Keens.

    My 6 year old loves these. They are a sturdy shoe boot perfect for fall. Non-marking sole and cord laces make it a good option for school, even on gym days.

    This is the second pair I have brought for my son. He's a busy 9 year old, who wears these camping, playing out in the scrub, riding his bike, hiking etc... He wear these every day and they tick all the boxes - comfy, durable, good sole, quick lacing system, kind to young feet. His last pair were still good after 12 months of tough wear, so when he grew out of them, I handed them down to his little brother. Little brother is stoked to have such a great pair of go anywhere/do anything shoes. Well done Keen!
