Keen women’s hiking sandals review – I’m keen on them!


Craig was a very good husband on October 8th. He bought me a pair of hot pink KEEN hiking sandals for my birthday.(

I’d never heard of Keen hiking shoes before, but I’m so glad I have now. My old hiking sandals were 6 years old, gave me blisters and weren’t that comfortable. Plus they were a little heavy.

These women’s Keens hiking sandals are like wearing a comfy pair of socks with holes in them so you have heaps of room to breathe. I love them!

Craig couldn’t have chosen better with the colour for the Keen hiking shoes – bold and happy, the pink works a treat for me.

We tested the Keen hiking sandals out with a walk along the coastline at Pretty Beach. The Keens were so comfortable and light. They offered plenty of protection and gave me no blisters or sore feet.

I loved walking over the sand with them because all I had to do was shake my feet a few times for the sand to fall back out the cracks when we finished.

I then tried the Keen hiking sandals out with a few creek crossings. They kept me upright, recovered quickly on dry land, didn’t give me blisters, and dried quickly.

KEEN hiking shoes

These Keen women shoes are the BOMB and are now my go-to shoes.

My poor thongs (flip flops) don’t understand why they have suddenly been so rejected.

So if you are looking for a good pair of travel hiking sandals, I’d recommend Keen women shoes.

Being waterproof, I can’t wait to try them out in the water now to see how they stand up.

P.S. Craig purchased his own pair of Keen shoes today at the Kathmandu store here in Hobart.

I’ve now had my Keen hiking sandals for 3 years AND they still look brand new and are as comfy as ever!

My Keens shoes have never given me a blister, but rocks and sticks sometimes do get caught under my feet. But, it’s no biggie. I’ll definitely be buying Keens hiking shoes again, if these ones eventually fall apart. But, they look like they have a lot of life left in them. These are by far the best hiking sandals I’ve ever owned. I cannot believe how long they have lasted.

Just so you know in the three years since owning these KEENS, I’ve road tripped around Australia for 18 months and am now road tripping across the US with them. I do plenty of hikes, especially in the dry and dusty outback, including plenty of wading in water. They’re still in perfect condition.

My Keen women’s hiking sandals are definitely my biggest travel gear recommendation to add to your travel packing list.

  1. I’m with you Earl. I have experienced that most people’s opinions are not tied to their active government and policies at all and it’s worth getting on the ground and meeting people to find that out for yourself while being aware of the government’s laws and potential problems.
    Iran comes to mind. Although I haven’t actually been there, I have met a few people who I consider friends who were Iranian and were fantastic with no animosity towards the US and I could tell didn’t like what was going on with their government and how the people were portrayed.

    I am always very interested as to how life really is in these countries and don’t take sensationalised stories from the media as a representation of the everyday people in a country. People are people, some are shitheads but most just want a good life and to be happy, it’s usually pretty easy to pick the former out with a bit of experience. But yeah…if I feel uncomfortable and someone asks where I am from I won’t hesitate to say Germany or Canada to avoid any further questions (and Germans aren’t expected to tip well).

    Enjoy the rest of the Romanian summer. Pa!
