    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    by fromDon't seem as well made as in the past I've had two earlier pairs of Austins -- still have them in various states of wear. They have been great shoes -- versatile, comfortable, and long lasting. Just got this new pair, and have to say they feel a bit lighter weight and don't seem as well put together -- irregular looking glue lines along the sole and just a overall feel that seems less substantial. Just got them though, so we'll have to see. I'll report back as I put them through the paces.

    by fromCasual comfortable walking shoe Although I've only slipped these shoes on twice they are a comfortable fit true to the size. The shoes are classy looking and best for any casual occasion.

    by fromComfortable I bought these shoes a few weeks back. I've always been happy with Keens because of the souls and arch support. These are no different. The biggest drawback is the firm leather around the ankle. With use the hope is the leather will soften, currently it is stiff enough that a day of wearing the shoes has already destroyed multiple pairs of socks by rubbing to the point of fraying the cotton.

    by fromSurprsingly comfortable I have wide feet and also need a big toe box. The helpful salesguy at my local REI suggested these when I told him that I needed something to wear when doing a lot of walking in urban and rural areas in Scotland. They are not the most attractive shoes you'll ever see (and a really odd color), but they were surprisingly comfortable (perhaps more than any other "city" shoe I've owned) and so far have held up well. I can absolutely recommend them to anyone with feet like mine.

    by fromComfortable but premature wear I purchased these shoes for a cruise/tour in Europe that required a fair amount of walking. I am happy with the comfort level of the shoes, and they served me well on the trip. However, I have noticed a small amount of wear on the piping of the upper portion of the shoe that should not have surfaced this early. It's not that I "wore them out" or had on socks that would create excessive amounts of friction. It seems that it is either a design issue, or (more likely) a defect in the manufacture. The soles held up very well and hardly show wear. I am thinking of taking them back to the store, but I do not live real close to the REI store, so I'm not sure if I'll get around to doing that. Despite this issue, I like the shoes and would buy they again. Therefore, I do recommend them.

    by fromGreat Shoe The width is a little on the narrow side compared to other Keen's. Still a great shoe.

    by fromNice looking low rise hiker Keen has become my go to brand for hiking/outdoor shoes. Theses are pretty stylish for outdoor shoes. at first glance you could definitely wear these at the office on casual fridays and then hit your favorite trail. When I first put them on it definitely fit like a keen...extra width in the front. Feel like I'm riding on my heels when standing but overall comfort feels great. I'll add to the review as I wear it more.
