Thank you for your feedback.
I am very satisfied with this purchase and product + recommend these to anyone looking for a rugged, comfortable sandal.
Keen's Owyhee is a most excellent shoe for on the river, day hiking and wearing around camp on some sandy/rocky beach.
The sandles fit well and are comfortable to wear all day.

    I have had Teva open-toed water sandals for years. These are very comfortable and cool for summer activities. I used them for sailing large boats and dinghies and also for hiking. Unfortunately, at this point, the big toe on each foot is starting to show wear from getting jammed all the time. So I determined that I need a pair of closed-toe sandals.

    First I bought the Teva Omnium. These were horrible summer shoes. They were hotter than my running shoes with no socks.

    Then I tried the Keen Newport. Better, but still too hot. Then I tried Venice. Too hot, and the heels popped off my feet way too easily.

    Then I tried Hydro Guides. This felt great and were cool, but looks...? Significant other promised that if I ever wore those, there would be no "quality time" for me.

    Finally tried Owyhees. These are the ones. They're still not as cool as open-toed sandals, but they're by far the coolest of all the closed-toe sandals I've tried (except the HydroGuides. And man are they comfortable. And they stay on very well due to the moving strap across the heel (as opposed to the Newports, Venices, etc).

    I've used them now for sailing, hiking, and on mountain biking/camping trips.

    Great shoes. Don't ever stop making them.

    I ordered these Keen Owyhee Sandals to replace a pair of Keen Newport H2s that were wearing out after nearly two years of daily wear. The attraction of the Owyhee design? The enclosed back heel. When I am hiking, my "standard" Keens routinely end up with a pebble, leaf, seedpod, etc. entering through the heel. I then have to stop, remove the shoe, shake out the debris and start again.

    So far, the mesh enclosure of the back heel seems to work fairly well. Debris can still enter the shoe from the openings on the side of the shoe, but it is relatively rare.

    The Owyhees are a bit narrower and slightly shorter than the same size Newports, so you may want to go up a half size. The tightening system seems to work better than the Newports.

    Overall, I would say these new Keens are another winner.

    Tested these sandals in many terrains. Comfortable, hard wearing, good foot protection, but slow to dry when wet. Sweaty in hot weather.

    Put them on and wear them, no break-in necessary. Excellent fit but as another reviewer said, get them one half size bigger than you normally wear. I walked miles in these sandals the first day I got them with no problem what so ever.

    Comfortable and fits well. However a little surprised that comparing to Newport sandals, you can see a lot more skin through the straps. Not a big concern as you get used to it very quickly.

    Seems to be a great sandal; however there is a slight flaw with the design. The strap that wraps the outside of the pinky toe is positioned in such a location that it cuts into your toe. I wear a size 12 and perhaps I should have gotten a size larger, but I ended up with a different style of sandal...still Keens though.

    I loved my 2 pair of Newport H2s. I wore them sailing, kayaking, and during the rainy summer season. Unfortunately, I've had 3 pair fail: the straps closest to the heel pulled out. One within warranty, which Keen replaced no questions asked, one just out of warranty. The replacement pair failed the same way after 6 months. After not finding anything made by Teva & others that were Keen-like, I "discovered" this model, which I hope will be more durable because the heel is almost completely attached, rather than in just a few points at straps. They are noticeably smaller than the Newports, but after loosening up the elastic/straps I think they'll be OK. I'd say if you sometime need an extra half size, get it with these (based on a sample of 1 pair). I'm holding back a star until I see if these last longer than the Newports....

    Comfortable from day one! I wear sz.11.5-12, ordered sz 12, and it's a perfect fit. From the limited casual use (no hiking or water use), I'm excited about these closed heel sandals...and they look great- I could wear them with black socks and even my daughters wouldn't notice (not!).

    Months later, I can only say: those sandals own me! It's after thanksgiving in Missouri, and my feet still have the tan patterns from those sumptuous slotted slippers...shovelling snow in sandals?...maybe, just maybe...
