    Keen Whisper Sandals - Women's is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different fit than the Waterport H2 I like how the webbing is neutral but the sole has a pop of color. The Whisper Keens fit completely different than the Waterport H2. I was initially happy about that because while I love the Waterport Keen's I've had for 10 years (and are just starting to fall apart), those do fit wide and run short. The Whispers are more narrow, which is great, and actually run a bit more true to size. What I didn't notice at first, is that the molding of the sole is completely different. The arch support is very low compared to the Waterport and is not placed properly (at least not for my feet). The sole of the heel also feels 'off'. While I can wear the Waterports for long hikes and day in and out without any soreness, I cannot do the same with the Whispers. After an hour I can tell my arches are not properly supported and my lower back starts feeling pressure. I have fairly high arches, so this wouldn't be a problem for those who don't. They are cute, and I'm sure they'll last forever. Given the current sale, I think I'll jump on the opportunity to purchase another pair of Waterport H2s!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from design pushes heel off shoe I wish I read other reviews before buying these shoes and breaking them in. I had the problem with the heel coming out of the shoe. I did not notice the problem when standing/walking around REI when trying them out. I was actually excited that there was a shoe that accommodated my rather narrow feet. Plus, with the boxed in toe area, I could avoid accidentally ripping my toenail off again when hiking (ouchie!).Later down the track I noted that my heel extended over the shoe by 3cm or more. At the same time there would be several finger widths worth of space in the toe area. I couldn't figure out why this was so. I tried alternately tightening and loosening and eventually leaving the bungy strap undone, but the same thing happened every time. The whole foot would slip back off the shoe despite the heel strap around the back. It didn't hurt to walk in them like that though. What did hurt was when I used the shoe to hike through muddy/sandy places. The dirt and bits o' debris gets lodged under the shoe or under the straps and starts to rub and cause blisters. If I know I am going to be getting my feet wet, I will wear some thin black sock liners underneath. That works well to stop the abrading. It is difficult to remove debris from the shoes. The shoe usually has to come off to empty it. Another one of my beefs about this shoe is that it contains AEGIS. I called the company and they stated that this AEGIS incorporates nanoparticles in its products. I have stopped buying Merrell shoes for this reason (they openly advertise it on their shoes, Keens does not). I have kept wearing these shoes, hoping to wear them out quickly so I can replace them. Unfortunately, the shoe seems to be well-made and looks brand new despite 2 years of on/off use...so I guess I am stuck with them for a while. Can anyone explain why such an open shoe has a 'waterproof' label sewn on to the side of the shoe?!?!?!?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile! Replacing 7 yr old pair! I have a pair of these Keens from 7-8 years ago and finally decided its time to get a new pair. I normally wear a size 8.5, and these were true to size (although my last Keens I had to get a half size smaller). I wear these everywhere- hiking, walking around the beach, kayaking, biking - super comfortable and versatile. My last pair I took with me on my yearly trips to Europe and always came in handy for walking, trails and excursions. I would have to say my Keens have been the most versatile and worthwhile shoe I have ever owned!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Hiking I hike about once a week year-round and hate hot feet so I got these. The first day we hiked about 8 miles roundtrip and these felt fine from the first day out of the box. Wore them today on a hike to the beach --4 miles round trip. They were great; not as much support as full-on tie-up trail shoes but good enough for easy trails.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keen sandals Keen sandals are such a fun new orange color. Extremely comfortable, even for long days. Easy to get on and off and so lightweight. Great for travel when weight is a consideration these days in planes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my 2nd pair of Whispers I wear these to work, biking, hiking, almost any time or any place. I have several pairs of Keens, and love them all. I wore out the first pair of Whispers after several years and many miles on them. They are comfortable and look nice with shorts, jeans, or dresses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these shoes! These shoes are great for doing anything in the water. They are also comfortable enough to wear for hiking, doing chores around the yard and beer fests! The only complaint is the first time I used them in water, the rocks easily got trapped under the soles of my feet. Tightening the shoes helped for most of the time thereafter, but not perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I am thoroughly impressed by these shoes. Originally, I just was looking for waterproof sandals that would also protect my feet while camping, kayaking, and canoeing, but they are so comfortable, I wear them everywhere. Awhile back, I tried on a few other styles of Keen sandals but they felt either too wide, too narrow, or too clunky for my feet. However, the Whisper sandals are perfect. And I love the bright orange color.
