Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable from day one! Keen shoes are some of my favorite everyday shoes. I have had some problems with the soles on other models peeling off but this new design is great and comfortable from day one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My orthopedic doctor and I both like them Wore these shoes to appt with orthopedic doctor. He really liked that the sole was stiff and bent precisely where it should at the toes. He prescribed custom orthotics and said to get them made to fit inside these shoes. I bought a 2nd pair so I can alternate when doing multi-day hiking on trails through irregular terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe, runs large My closet has many Keens, they are comfortable and last a long time. I bought the size I have worn for years but this one was a bit large so I exchanged it for a half size smaller and the fit is perfect.

How is the Gypsum II compared with the older model - Gypsum Ox? I am size 7.5 in Gypsum Ox and want to make sure a 7.5 in the Gypsum II will fit me?

Asked by: Peter52
These shoes are very similar in features and fit. The Keen Gypsum II has leather eyelets which are more durable.
