Like one of the other reviewers, I am also in my 20s and have small feet (I am usually a 6.5-7 and the 5 is perfect). The kids H2 are half the price of the adult ones, and I'm broke so.... I have two pairs of these now, but the first pair I wore and wore and wore. I wore the tread smooth, but I still keep them because they are STILL super comfortable. I have retired them from hiking just because they are too slick on the bottoms, but they still have a lot of life for around town, etc.This is the only pair of shoes ever that I have been able to wear soaking wet and still be able to hike 10 miles without a single blister. I highly recommend them for anyone age 2 to 200 who wants a comfortable slipper-like shoe with amazing breathability and traction.
I purchased a couple pairs of these shoes for my kids. They have been AWESOME. They last forever. I purchased them in neutral colors so they could be passed down to my boys when my girsl out grew them. That was about 3 years ago and they still look like new when they come out of the wash. You cannot go wrong with purchasing Keens.
I absolutely love these keens. The color is amazing, so feminine. They are both practical and comfortable. I am a Womens size 7, and was able to buy this pair of shoes, and they fit, which saved me a ton of money!
I'm not going to lie, I'm in my 20's and I bought the kids version because i have small feet and while I do fit into womens, why waste 40 bucks? especially when no paddling shoes are cute. I bought these for kayaking, but they're also great for hiking. and going through rocky streams. they have grippy tread, and handle mud and stuff really well. little pebbles and dirt get stuck in the toes, that's my only real annoyance with them. I like that they float, and that I can just hose them off at the end of the day. They may give you blisters the first time or two, but you can fix that by looking nerdy and wearing socks. or putting on bandaids beforehand.

I have a million pairs of Keens. I buy my parents Keens all the time. And now, I have purchased my nephew a pair of these. He is 2, and he loves them. He is always wearing them. I am assuming he loves them for the same reason I do. Keens are super comfortable out-of-the-box. There really is no breaking-in period. If you do not have a pair of Keens, you probably... well, just get a pair and put an end to the whispering!
My daughter loves her flip flops so when she puts these on to go cycling I know that she likes these shoes. She gets a lot of compliments about the color and being somewhat vain, it spurs her on to wear them even more. Her older sister is now asking when she can get a pair.Keens hold up well and this shoe is no different. Whether using them as a water shoe, wading through muddy banks or simply running on pavement, these shoes work for all situations!

Bought these late spring for my son to use sailing. He sails every day & lives in these - and they look as good as when we bought them 2 months ago. Plus if you're in the sun all day they give you this radical tiger-stripe tan on your feet!
