Default Keen Shoes?

Anybody where these? Im looking for a boat, sandbar, and water restaurant shoe. Looking to bring one pair of shoes to the keys, wish I had them in Costa Rica.

I have these... been wearing Keen shoes for years. These are great general purpose / all around / do everything shoes.

I wear them fishing, scalloping, on the boat, on the beach, in the Jeep... everywhere.

Olukai's are nice, but the price is crazy to me. I've spent more than half my life in Reef's, basically live in them half the year and have travelled ALL OVER the world in them, surfing and fishing. Don't see any need for anything else.

These are great, but pricey for me. I manage to find them dirt cheap at Nordstroms rack on occasion.

I wear Keens for work and for weekend/ casual use. Very comfortable and durable. No complaints.

Just an hour ago I dropped off a pair of the Newport H2s at a repair shop to get a seam restitched. No wear otherwise; should be good for another couple of years. I blew out a pair of Tevas in a few months--the Keens last much longer and don't stink too badly.

I just bought 2 pair. I had Olukai sandals but they don't adjust enough for my feet though I like their lace up shoe. The Keens are real nice with a lot of arch support.

5 gallon bucket with some dawn in it and dance around one foot at a time, rinse and dry. Last about 3 months before you HAVE to retreat. Have fixed a broken lace holder with small zip tie and it worked until they finally fell apart.

Just plain old rubbing alcohol is all I use on my flip flops and other water shoes. Works like a charm getting the funk smell out. Was a tip given to me by the president of Teva a long tim ago!

The Keen CNX sandals are light weight and without the big blocky soles.

I have the keen boat shoe(Newport boat shoe), really like them. So far very comfortable and way more durable than sperrys.
