Summary

Versatile, well made, lightweight sandal, perfect in the water or on land.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Quality construction

Bought these a couple of weeks ago. I have enjoyed wearing them practically any time I can since then! I bought them because they are a perfect balance of protection for my feet, breathability, and light weight.  They only weigh a pound. 

I just finished up a 4-day hike and I looked forward to putting them on every night in camp. I also found the minimal bulk to be a real plus when stuffing them in the outside pocket of my pack.

I have worn Keen shoes for a long time, but these are the first Keen sandals I have worn and I am definitely pleased with how they feel and wear with such minimal weight. I have found that I like the thin soles and minimalist construction that these shoes incorporate. With that said, some may find the soles a bit too thin for comfort while walking around in the woods with them. 

Basically perfect if you are looking for a versatile camp shoe, or even everyday summer footwear.
