FEATURES of the Keen Men's Austin Shoe
Combination waterproof nubuck and full-grain leather upper
These shoes are just perfect for our weather in Vermont. First, they are incredibly comfortable. The wide toe base really makes a difference in how well they fit. Secondly, the grip on the sole is terrific! I have been wearing them in light, slippery snow conditions with no problem. If spring ever comes (what a winter!), I know they will be great for the trails my dog and I hike. Super product!! Well-made and good looking, too. If you like a very broad toe base, they are perfect!
"Loved them to death. (And mourned their passing.)"
My first intent was to make them "office casual". But after a while they became my go-to shoe for everything. Comfortable after 10 miles of San Fran touring, upper michigan hiking, or climbing boulders at Yosemite. Durable and waterproof ( to a point ).
I have worn these shoes as my primary work shoes for 6 months, as I needed something robust yet stylish enough for the office. While I was initially impressed with this shoe, quality issues began around the 3 month mark. Now the soles are tearing away from the leather on both shoes and the bottom of the sole is ripping. I expected to get a least a full winter from these and have been disappointed.
Keen shoes are awesome! I already own the sandals and the sneakers. I thought I'd get my BF a pair of casual keens so he can get hooked on them as well. They're so comfortable, and stylish. I love my sandals they have great toe protection for going into the rocky waters. I can't get enough of KEENS, they are awesome!
