Comfortable durable wide shoes
May 15, 2011
Most shoes aren't shaped like feet, they're designed as if feet are symmetrical. Keens follow the contour of a real human foot. They are wide enough that toes can spread apart a little, which makes for better balance while walking. Other Keen shoes have raised heels built in, these have a raised heel built into the insole. By removing the insole, you can have a level, flat shoe, like old-style sneakers. This is much better for the foot. Raised heels shift your weight forward, stressing the arches, and distorting posture. Removing the insoles also allows better air circulation under the foot. If you want to try it without insoles, get ½ size smaller. Coronado has very durable soles. Bike riding on platform pedals did not damage the soles. The soles are hard enough to protect the foot, but flexible enough to walk in. They have enough traction for street use, but not for hiking. Uppers are very durable also. Some Coronado models have white rands/bumpers, which get very grungy looking. I think shoes look better with black or dark rands. Usually I color the Coronado rand/bumper black with an industrial felt marker. The bumper is thicker than necessary, making the shoe stiffer and heavier than it could be.Pros: no leather, wide, shaped like feet, durable, Cons: raised heel on insole, white rubber, not water resistant
Comfy and casual
June 05, 2012
This is the third pair of Keen shoes/sandals I have purchased. I love them all. My feet are narrow, but wide at the toes...exactly the shape of my Keen Coronado shoes. These go well with jeans, shorts, board shorts at the beach. A good summer-time, casual shoe. I would buy them again.

I opened the box and said "perfect, exactly what I was looking for". This is a casual kick around shoe, to replace my old school KSWISS "The Vintage" shoes. The shoe material is real minimal not bulky and and has a low cut profile around your ankle. Sizing (as with all the Keens I own) runs a bit large, but not large enough to size down. I always order 47's and 46's are to tight. Whether to are a first time Keen buyer or a long time Keen fan (of the tar toe), these shoes are are a keeper...looking to get another pair now.

Good, but not perfect
March 18, 2011
I've heard the Keen brand name for a while and have heard plenty of positive things about them. After wearing a pair of Simple Tuba shoes for the last year (which are awesome by the way), it was time to replace them with something similar. The Coronado shoes are a good replacement. They have a similar style and look while still having their own design. The shoes came a bit stiff, but a couple days of wearing them to work have broke them in quite well. They are a bit wider than I like, but they are still a rockin and styling set of shoes. I'm sure after another week they'll be nice and broke in. One other reason I choose these shoes is for their slim and low-profile cut. Too often I've been disappointed with shoes that look slim on screen only to get them in the mail and find they are bulky on the sides. The Keen Coronado's are just as they appear: slim and low cut. I've had the shoes for a week now and I can tell they're going to last. The canvas exterior is strong and the vulcanized outsoles I can tell are not going to crack, peel or bend out of place.Pros: canvas, non-marking sole, slim profile, light, breathable, sweet color combos, Cons: a little stiff at first
Nice shoe from Keen
April 01, 2011
As always, another great product from Keen. Having been very impressed by the comfort and quality of my Keen boots, sandals, and office shoes, I decided to try out their casual shoes. This is a very comfortable and good looking shoe. It doesn't offer the same arch support as most of their other footwear but still feels great. Definitely a step up from the old converse all stars!
My Second Pair
December 12, 2011
I bought these shoes years ago when I returned to school and needed something narrow enough to fit on bike pedals and comfortable to wear all day. This shoe worked out perfectly and I found myself wearing this shoe all the time. After wearing them just about everyday for two years I wore through the sole and had a few holes in the uppers, so I bought another pair and I am now wearing this second pair just about everyday. I have found these to fit comparably to other Keens I have owned. My first pair I used with SuperFeet, but this second pair I am using with the regular insoles. Both ways works great.

Cool looking shoes and comfortable. The only two things I could criticize are the fact that the aluminum eyelets can dig a little into the top of your foot sometimes, and that the white rubber toe scuffs easily. Other than that they are perfect in every way.
Great shoes, great price!
September 13, 2011
Altrec beat the other online stores by a good $15 on these shoes, and shipping was fast and cheap. The shoes have much more toe room than I expected, and are made sturdily and well. They come with two pairs of laces so you can choose which color you like best (a light tan and a darker brown). The soles are relatively flat, so may not be the best in wet/slippery conditions, but the quality of the manufacture, the comfort, the style, and the price make them very easy to recommend! Thanks!

This is my second pair of Keen Coronados that I have purchased over the last couple years. They fit great and are super comfortable, much more so than converse. And you have to love the classic Keen style and colors, not to mention Altrecs pricing on these babies! Buy two pair!Pros: fit, comfort, style, color, Cons: bernie madoff

These are simple, everyday shoes that look great. They are surprisingly comfortable considering they don't have a "running shoe" type sole. They work great with jeans!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
Better than chucks
June 05, 2011
These are pretty good shoes by Keen. Overall the shoes are much beefier than the classic Converse chucks many people might be used to. They have a classic look and seem to be fair quality for what they are, a simple casual shoe. I wasn't terrible impressed with the canvas they used on the shoe though, it looks like jean material rather than canvas (at least on the black ink version). Thus the three stars. If you buy these you won't be disappointed but choose the color carefully.Pros: quality
Good Cycling Shoes
October 16, 2011
I purchased these shoes so I could ride with traditional pedals, and toe clips; as opposed to clipless pedals. The shoes are very good for this application. The sole is stiff enough that it is much more supportive than 'casual shoes', and with the rubber toes, and 'sleek' toe area, they slide nicely into the toe clips. Much better than tennis shoes which are almost dangerous for this type of riding. The shoes could use better footbeds, but this can be remedied very easily with any good footbed from say New Balance, which I have tried. They provide much more arch support, since the footbed that comes with the shoes are quite flat. The shoes are very true to size. I usually wear a 9D, and they fit perfectly. They do take a short period of 'break in', as do most shoes.Pros: good style, easy to use with pedals and toe clips, stiffer sole than tennis shoes, good all around casual shoe, Cons: could use better footbeds
A nice casual show for Keen
February 15, 2011
I recently bought a pair of Men's Coronado shows and they are a nice casual show for Keen. These are not a hiker or performance show but nice and lightweight and comfortable. I plan to use these throughout the Sring and summer with and without socks.
Awesome Simple Shoe
November 29, 2010
This shoe does what it is intended to do perfectly. It is very comfortable and casual with a classic but "outdoorsy" look. These shoes have quickly become my favorite all around pair of shoes. I wear a 10.5 in all my shoes and the fit of this one is spot on. Keen quality and comfort all the way through.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value

These are great. The one thing to point out is that they aren't flimsy canvas (like chuck taylors) The material is like burlap with a hard coating. Really comfy shoes. Happy I bought them.

I have been using the keen coronados for about 2 weeks now and i am very satisfied. They look great and seem to be holding up very well and show no wear as of yet. The upper canvas material is very stiff however so if your ankles roll in at all it could cause a little bit of irritation for a few days. This also makes them more difficult to slip on and off without undoing the laces. The canvas shows no sign of breaking down. The traction is good in dry or wet conditions and the tread doesn't seem to be wearing much at all. The shoes run about normal length (compared to DVS shoes). The soles are pretty flat and have minimal arch support giving them a "slipper" feel.Pros: durable, great traction
Great looking shoe
February 12, 2010
I only have one other pair of keens (Newport H2), these don't seam to be quite as comfortable. The look of the shoe is a bit "chucks" like, which is usually what I wear, but I can see myself switching over to strictly keen from now on. Its a very comfortable shoe, and very light weight.
