Although these are a bit clunky, I liked the shoe; solidly built. Unfortunately, they tended to bite my instep and didn't cinch very well -heel lift. Plenty of room in the toe box; typically full like most keen shoes. Although the leather is quite pluch, I think they would need quite a lot of break-in due to very stiff sole. too bad

I bought these shoes because I love Keens and was not disappointed. They are so conformable, I wear them almost everyday. They are worth every penny of the price if you need shoes that look good and are waterproof. They will last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NoahJohn Keen manufactures Outstanding shoes and boots
I never heard of Keen footwear until reading L.L. Bean reviews. First I ordered a pair of Keen Bryce hiking boots. Perfect fit right out of the box. Very comfortable. My wife noticed immediately what I felt, "The boots are wider than the average boot in the front. No slightly squished feeling at all! I was so impressed a immediately ordered a pair of Keen's low cut hiking shoes for mountain biking and wearing around and Keen's Marshall- kind of a mix between a sneaker-shoe. I'm very happy with the Keen product line. So pleased that I liquidated all my other shoes. The price of Keen is worth it for fit and comfort. I'm sure the three pairs will also last for miles upon miles of use.

These shoes fit my husband's feet like a glove! He's very particular about shoe fit and feel, and he was amazed at their comfort! Well worth the price!

I purchased a pair of Keen Newport H2 sandals from L.L.Bean a couple of years ago. With plantar fasciitis, I find myself wearing the sandals all the time because they are the only footwear that provides for proper support. When I searched for Keen shoes that could be worn in colder, wet weather, I was delighted to find that L.L.Bean carries the waterproof Austin shoe in two styles. The versatile gargoyle option is a combination of gray nubuck with dark brown leather trim over gray and black soles. The shoes arrived with the lacing routed through the top of the eyelets which I reversed. Out of the box, they fit perfectly--as well as my H2 sandals--with no break-in expected. These will serve as my go-to shoe through the fall and winter months.

These shoes took a few days of break-in to get really comfortable. They are very supportive, have the typical Keen wide toe box. high quality throughout.

what more can be said to describe this keen austin sneaker-WOW, comfortable and a pleasure to wear. my medical gel inserts work well and were easy to place within the sneaker. freeport maine associate caryn was a delight to work with. she was patient and took time to ensure a good fit for walking was achieved. by trying on different width sizes, with other products, we where able to narrow the selection down and the proper size required. Her personal attention was a key reason for the purchase as it assured the customer they had the best product to meet their needs.

Keen make incredibly comfortable shoes. Although they typically run a 1/2 smaller they fit great from day one and no break in period. They are well made and built to last.

This is my first experience with Keen footwear and they are not the most attractive shoes but definitely well made. I have no issues with the quality so far and they are breaking in nicely. An all around good casual.
