Love Keen, hated these
on January 19, 2014
I've worn Keen shoes for years and love how they fit right from the box. My current ballerinas are a bit clunky for skirts, so I was looking for something more "delicate". While this shoe fits that bill, it doesn't fit my foot. Granted, each foot is different, but these were, as another reviewer noted, oddly deep. The heel rode far up my achilles and was very uncomfortable. The toe box was a good depth (no "toe cleavage'), but it was also rough/tight across the top of my foot, settling right in on a nerve. I tried putting an insert in which did help the hee issuel, but nothing much for the rest of the shoe. I also noted that it gapped oddly near the midfoot, almost as though it were too wide (and I have WIDE feet). For comfort comparison, I slipped my current ballerina on and these Delanceys just do not compare. I'll stick with clunky for now, these are going back.
