I have enjoyed Keens, but couldn't find a lace up pair of hikers that didn't hurt my 60 year old feet. Tried the Siskiyou and I am sure they are good shoes, but they caused discomfort in my big toe joints. The Ambler mesh seems to be the answer as they are very light and flexible-no pain! Like the looks too.

Great for the Desert
July 24, 2012

I live in Southern Arizona and these seem like the perfect shoes for this relatively flat, hot, and dry area. My favorite thing about these shoes is the light weight which is a huge energy saver. The only thing I really didn't like was that they seemed to collect sand but I'm hoping this is because the only time I've taken them on the trail so far was right after it rained, the wet sand and grit would cake on the bottom of one shoe then fall off right into the other. I found the arch support lacking but this may be because I have sort of high arches, either way this is the only reason I didn't give a full five stars.

These are good looking shoes. They feel great from day one. I hope they hold up well. I wore them to work a few times and they feel fine on concrete floors.

Comfortable shoes with roomy toebox, but shoe instep is way too wide for my narrow feet. would recommend to someone , with a wider foot. the material is comfortable and lightweight.


Great for flat footed folk.

This is my third pair of Keen shoes/ sandals. Sized true, a ten was a ten. Nice roomy toe box, these shoes work well for pronators. They easily have room to accept an aftermarket insole ( super feet ). The Amblers address my one issue with most Keen shoes I've tried on, they breathe. Many of their hikers have, at least some mesh in their construction, but on your feet, they are pretty warm. These Amblers suite the warm Southern Calirfornia conditions well. Like the styling, although, note to Keen, it may be time to start toning down the bomb proof toe bumper a bit. I know, I know, it's what makes a Keen a Keen, but it could be a little less bulbous on the men's shoes and still be effective. These shoes have walk all day comfort.

Pros: breathe, roomy, great for pronators, take an insole easily, built well, Cons: bulbous keen toe?

Nice fit and venilation

I have purchased many Keens over the years. These shoes seem to run quite a bit larger than normal. I had to go a 1/2 size smaller than I normally do. I find this brand with all their new styles can be inconsistent in sizing. Keen still makes great shoes regardless. I have had the mesh Amblers for about a week. Great traction and very good arch support. I am looking forward to the mesh for the summer months.

Pros: ventilation, Cons: 1/2 size larger than other keens

Light and breathable Keens
September 05, 2012

Got these for my husband who has a horrible time finding shoes because he has such a "high volume" foot. These are not the largest of the Keen lasts (like the Growler boots we have) but are not the slender ones either - somewhere in the middle. The shoes are light and well-built. Hubby said the arch was higher than any other Keens when he first wore them, but they've broken in nicely and now he's wearing them happily. He says they are way more comfortable than any other Keen shoes in the hot weather because the air can get in.

Pros: light breathable
