Thank you for your feedback.
There was no adjustment period, they fit just right and were comfortable right off the bat.
However when I got these babies they fit like a glove, not tight or pinching, and I felt like I was walking on pillows.
I love this shoe for fit and how it protects my foot, but I am NOT liking the closure design at the top of the foot.

    I went out of my way to write this review because of my extremely positive experience with these shoes. I have never had a pair of shoes of any style, including running shoes, that fit so perfectly and can be worn for such a wide variety of activities. I hike every summer in the Cascade Mountains and have not found a better pair of hiking shoes than these. You can run in them. They look great for casual work places. They are sturdy, yet supple. You pay a premium ($90 to $100) but they last forever. They're water-resistant, too, though I would not say they are "water-proof."

    They look great, breath fairly well, have great heel support, and are truly conforming to your foot after a few uses. I also have some Keen Newports for biking (with cleats) and I would have to say they are nowhere near the outstanding feel of the Arroyo IIs. The lack of support in the heel makes you feel like you're always leaning back on your feet. But, to stick with the review of the Arroyo II--you will not regret this purchase, guaranteed.

    My Arroyo II's just arrived today. I want a good pair of hiking sandals for my first Grand Canyon trip this August, yet something that can get wet for Havasu Falls. I heard so many good things about Keens that I decided to try them for myself.

    First, some things to consider. At first I was settled on the Keen Newport H2's, but after speaking to an associate at REI I learned that the tread of the H2's is not suited for hiking, and that the Arroyo II's would serve me better for mostly hiking. This point was obvious after examining the tread of both models; the Arroyo II's have a thicker tread for greater traction on dirt and rocks. They also seem more durable overall and are made of leather instead of nylon. The way he put it: The Newport H2's are mostly for water activities and some outdoor activities, and the Arroyo II's are mostly for hiking and some water activities. This is because the Arroyo II's won't dry as quickly as the Newport H2's because of its cushioned insole for better support, which is nonexistent in the H2's. Although both models of sandals seem great, you have to decide for yourself what you need them for before making a purchase. I figured I'd be hiking mostly, with some treks across rivers, streams, etc., so I went with the Arroyo II's.

    My first impression after trying them on is a good one! They fit well, are comfy, and have good arch support for walking. These shoes really feel tough enough to handle the rugged outdoors, with a thick toe and sturdy coverage on all sides. I'm questioning the ankle support these shoes will provide, although there is some support. Some people weren't happy with the drawstring for tightening the sandal. I could maybe see it not holding well and coming loose after long hikes, so I will keep an eye on this.

    I was really excited to get these based on previous Keen shoes and sandals that I have owned, but I have owned these since March of this year and they are falling apart on me.

    Over a period of about 3 weeks, I tried on the following hiking sandals before I settled on the Keen Arroyo II.

    - Ahnu Men's Reyes III Sandal
    - Keen Men's Kreek Sandal
    - Kamik Men's Portage2 Sandal
    - Skechers Sport Men's Journeyman-Safaris Sandal
    - Keen Glisan Sandal
    - Keen Newport H2
    - Keen Newport

    After testing so many sandals, I discovered that the Arroyo II is not perfect, but it has a good combination of features that makes it a first class hiking sandal:

    1. Thick, rugged tread on the sole of the sandals. Whether you're hiking black asphalt or red rock, these sandals will give you sure footing every time. I hope that in the Arroyo III's, they make the tread even more thick. Keen Kreeks are the most comfortable sandals I've worn, but its sole is a joke. They look like they're made for city sidewalks not actual creeks.

    2. Strong toe protection, the Arroyo II has above average toe protection compared to the other models except for the Skechers Journeyman-Safaris and Keen Glisan.

    3. Soft, fabric uppers that wrap your foot gently with added cushion and elastic support for comfort. Admittedly not as comfortable the the Keen Kreeks. I hope the Arroyo III's borrow the uppers from the Keen Kreek.

    4. Supportive insole is nice, but not as nice as the Glisan model. In the Arroyo III, Keen should use the insole from the Glisan model.

    The Arroyo II's nearest competition is from the Glisan. The Glisan has excellent tread as well (though not as thick or ruggedly designed) and a better insole with actual cushion. However, the uppers of the Glisan are way too stiff to be comfortably worn on bare feet. The Glisans feel fine with socks.

    I own a pair of Arroyo hiking sandals. They are about 4-5 years old and I love them. Just now one of the elastic draw cords broke but that is not a biggie to solve and is the first problem. On my newer pair of 2 yr old pair Arroyo II's there a really different problem. The II appears to be an upgraded version of the Arroyo. I wear the Arroyo all the time, in warm weather, for general work and exercise (dog) walking. I got the new pair of the II's and moved them to daily dog walking and for being dressed in a newer more colorful hiking sandal. Here is the problem. The Arroyo II has a new fabric water resistant lining that is different than the original Arroyo. It is the Hydrophobic mesh lining. The lining at the heel cups wore out by the first month of the new (2nd) season. Remember this is a warm weather hiking shoe not a cold winter shoe. The heel fabric is worn through and the under construction of plastic and some fiber is exposed causing blisters on my heel unless I have on soxs. To me this is quality control issue where a new material was added to a shoe and it is not durable enough to hold up to normal wear. KEEN would not stand behind the shoe saying I was out of warranty even though I provided clear photos of the product failure. They did give me a 50% off coupon for any product sold from their web site. If they put a tag on their adds "will only last one season" who would ever buy them? I wanted to buy a new pair of these but ultimatly the product failure prevented me from doing so. Love their shoes (own 5 pairs) but not these.
