Great hiking/walking shoes
on May 16, 2014
I bought these because i had a big multi-day hike coming up which would have been in very unpredictable weather (in Alaska) and up to 10 miles a day for 4 days. Unfortunately we ahd to cancel the trip due unforseen circumstances, but none the less i have still put these shoes through the ringer!
I live in an outdoor paradise in Kodiak Alaska and have done everything from just waliing to and from work (about 1.5 mi each way over some roads and some rough terrain) to taking long hikes, to beach walking and tide pooling.
These shoes had exactly 0 breakin period, and they were comfy and loose from the first time i put them on my feet! They are not a traditional hiking show, and are almost like if a light flexible running shoe and a hiking shoe had a baby. The material is lightweight and thin, and the sole is a very light, flexible yet durable material. they also have great toe protection with the signature KEEN toe gaurd so when ive come up against a rock or something i have never hurt my toe.
They are 100% waterproof, and you can litterally stand in a pool of water up to about ancle hight and the water just rolls off like on a ducks back, this feature is great for tide-pooling here on the coast and my feet stay dry and my grip stays true!
I highly recommend these shoes to anyone, and i have been showing them off to friends and getting lots of compliments.
