Rated 1 out of 5 by Culiel Falling apart after 6 months
My toddler son has outgrown two pair of Keens so far, and I liked the look and the fit, so I bought myself a pair. I was quite pleased when these shoes arrived, but after six months of basically everyday wear, they are falling apart. I'm not talking hiking and getting them wet in creeks and exposing them to harsh weather. I'm talking summer walks through the local park and around the neighborhood. The heel details are coming unglued and the footbed is wearing at the heel on both shoes. I have had shoes that cost half as much for twice as long and wore them twice as much and they didn't wear out like these Keens. I'm sending them back. In all, not impressed in the slightest.

When I first received these, I liked them but hadn't really tested the waterproof claim. After 50+ early morning dog walks in wet grass, I can say they have passed (to date) with flying colors. Updated review then: comfortable AND actually waterproof. Wow.

Most of the items I have purchase at L.L. Bean over my life have been wonderful and I have been relying on Bean's quality for 45 years so my experience with these shoes is not at all typical. I purchased these shoes specifically because they were advertized as waterproof and I can assure you they are not. Not just one shoe but both shoes and right from the start. Walking my dog in the wet grass saturates the shoes and then soaked through the toe area in about 1.1/2 hour. The rest of the day sucked with wet feet. They also shrunk after they got wet inside. I returned them for obvious reasons and purchased similar waterproof KEEN shoes (also at Bean's) and these are definitely waterproof and I love them. Recommended by the shoe sales women because she walks her dog in them as well. Life is not perfect, why should Bean's be. Buy the KEEN shoe.

Great shoes and great service! These run smaller than the Keens I I have had before. Bean's helped me get the right size and the exchange was easy as pie. I love my Bean's Keens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiznow So Far, So Good
The shoes are comfortable for walking, which is one of the points. And so far, they have been effective on wet surfaces. The test will come in July and August when they will be pressed into service for fairly long and very early morning walks on a dewy golf course. I'm hoping they pass, and I will provide an update.

After going to two shoe stores, I visited the LL Bean Store in Victor NY. They had what I was looking for in my size. The sale person was very helpful. I am very happy with the hiker. They are comfortable for the day and can go the distance through the many mud puddles New York State have this time of year.

I discovered Keen shoes and boots a couple of months ago. These are the most comfortable shoes that I have and I wear them all the time. Be careful though, Keen boots run about a half size small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by activeoutdoorsylady finally, shoes I can wear
I've tried SO many kinds of shoes - then, thanks to LL Bean, tried the Keens. Because of the international sizing, I can wear the men's and women's, have both and wear them daily. I walk and hike miles each day and need good footwear. Thanks LL Bean !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HighExpectations2 Great shoes, but be careful of size ordered
These are extremely comfortable shoes... I love them and am on my second pair. However, read the last sentence in the description and order a half size larger than your street shoes. They are definitely on the small size.
