Keen Waimea H2
Use: Casual and short day hikes
Break-in Period: None
Price Paid: $25
A step up from the average "flip-flop" sandal. Size is accurate and comfortable from first step. Sole is a little stiffer with more traction than others, thus you will feel comfortable walking with some light hiking. Seems to wear very well.
Toe guard is main difference from other shoes. A plus is the protection from sticks and stones. Keeps you from bruised toes. A minus on the toe guard is you get a funny looking tan line and it can take some getting used to...for those who like to wiggle their toes.
