Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid, comfortable shoe I took these almost straight from the store to the trail (except for a couple of two-miles walks). After 160 miles on some of the roughest, rock and boulder-strewn trail I've ever hiked, my feet were unblistered and in good shape otherwise -- no aches, no strains, no sore joints. That's pretty good for a fellow in his 60s. The Keens provided great support and protection. My only complaint is the laces had to be double-tied to keep the knot in place. These shoes are worth the price. One piece of advice; buy hiking shoes one size larger than you need and re-lace and re-tie as needed. Saves your toes on the downhill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Comfortable I bought these to replace a pair of Merrells I have had for many years. I tried these on in the store and thought they felt okay. Its hard to explain but they are just uncomfortable all the way around. If you get the laces even remotely snug it put a pressure point on the top of your foot. I always feel like my foot is about to pull out of these shoes. They feel heavy and clunky for everyday use. I replaced the inside pad hoping to make them more comfortable, it didn't help. These are the only pair of shoes I have ever quit wearing. Its a shame because I love my Keen water shoes. I was just hoping for better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Footwear I have used these throughout N Georgia, and a couple national parks in UT and various places in AZ. They are very comfortable for hiking all day. Still look great with no sign of premature wear. Not tested out the waterproof yet, but the footwear seems very well built and ready for most everything I will throw at it. Finding the right size for me was best done in person, as they seemed to run a little small.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor heel pad design Bought 2 wks ago. Felt great in the store, then at home. Two miles into first hike felt like a little rock under heel. Two more miles felt like a sharp rock under heel giving me a lot of discomfort. Finally pulled up the insole to see if there was something coming through -- the manufacturer had put a "rock" there, an approx. 1'' x 1.5" rounded lump of firm rubber, and had hollowed out the insole to accommodate it. This had felt like a spring in my step in the store, but after a few hiking miles the insole had softened to the point that the rubber "pad" was pushing up on the center my heel like a rock. Nothing I could do about it, and I was at the far side of my hike! Furthermore, I realized, if I ever needed new insoles I'd have to special order them from Keen! So look under the insole before you buy these. Mine went straight back to the REI store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Think Twice A number of things attracted me to this shoe, it's waterproof, it was low cut for summer hiking, it had the Keen quality backing it up. However, after going against my gut and thinking I could get these shoes to loosen up and feel better after a couple weeks of wearing. I was sorely mistaken. These shoes ended up being the worst shoes I have ever put on my feet. These shoes are better boots than low cut shoes. The outsoles are heavy and clunky for starters. But, the deal breaker, was that they are simply painful across the top of your foot when trying to lace them anything close to snug. I knew it was over when I couldn't wait to take these off after wearing them to work (an office job) for casual Friday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my feet & legs I use these everyday to hike in the rocky desert. But, yesterday I went to hike REALLY rocky trails, where there was some bouldering, slickrock downhill, uneven camber, really kind of a bad unkempt seldom used trail in the desert mountains. These hiking shoes HOLD on that slickrock, & hold on the uneven boulders. The sticky rubber really helped. Also, I read that to save your ankles its the shoe's stability, not that they are boots. I found out yesterday, this is a truism. There is a lot of lateral stability in these shoes. Now, the biggest drawback to me is that they are waterproof. I need waterproof like a hole in the head. It rains here .001% of the time, & waterproof makes shoes hotter & heavier in all locales (which its hot enough here, & hikers/ backpackers don't need more weight!) Why do manufacturers insist on making 99% of shoes waterproof?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unpleasantly Bad I'm usually a Keen fan. I've been buying them for years and the rest of the family wears them so it was a "no brainer" when I needed to buy new shoes to go with new Keens. Upon purchasing these I noticed that the fit was very strange- The forefoot portion felt narrow and tight while the heel was so loose that my heel kept slipping out of the shoe. I also noticed that the tongue of the shoe was designed strangely. I figured the in-store fit would improve once I got them home and adjusted the tongue and the laces. Boy was I wrong. The tongue on these shoes was designed to go outside of the upper part of the shoe- not like what is shown in the picture. Think "skater" shoes with a big tongue that stick out the front. That meant that the overlapping portions of the shoe dug into the top of my foot. I tried tucking the tongue inside but it was so big that it was even more uncomfortable. I also could never remedy the heel slip in these shoes. I tightened the laces more to alleviate the heel slip, then they were extremely uncomfortable on the front of my foot. I've only returned 2 things in the 20 years I've been an REI member- and these shoes were one of them (the other were unused kayak foam pads). I asked the guy who I consider to be the long time shoe guru at my REI what the deal was with the shoes after I bought them. He told me that this was one of the first pairs that Keen had started making in the USA (and I do applaud them for that) but unfortunately the fit was totally different than any previous Keen shoes. Seriously, I'd stay away from these shoes. I've never returned shoes in the 45 years I've been alive, but these earned the distinction of being some of the most uncomfortable and poorly fit shoes I've ever worn.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from good waterproofing, extremely uncomfortable These shoes are great for being waterproof and the toe holding together, but they are extremely uncomfortable at supporting the ball of my feet. I went back and tried a different size and they told me to use their $50 insoles and i have the same problem. I would NEVER buy these again. I loved my other keens but they wore out very quickly. It was worth it though. Save your money and do not buy these

Will this shoe hold an orthotic even with the heel cushion? I bought and returned a size 13 which I normally wear in Keens because they were too small. I then read that they run small and thought about trying a size 14.

Asked by: Mike Rx
If you ordered a size 13 in the Keen Durand Low WP Hiking Shoes and they were too small, we recommend ordering a size 14. You can replace the insole with your orthotic. We cannot guarantee that it will be a perfect fit.
