This is most versatile shoe- sneaker or otherwise- I have ever owned. I have been searching for a replacement pair for my US Women's 9.5 that I was fortunate enough to find on Sierra Trading Post a couple of years ago.
Fit like a glove with the bungee cord. Excellent for a narrower foot. Incredibly resilient with great arch support and cushioning (this is coming from someone who wore orthotics for years). Fairly warm for hiking too despite the mesh webbing and excellent waterproofing.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Keen Banff sits in the gray area between water shoe, sandal, and hiking shoe.
