Not A Good Fit For Me
May 18, 2011

The Owyhee look great and at first appeared to be just what I was looking for in a sandal/watershoe. The trouble I had was in the fit. The side webbing was placed in such a way that my little toe would stick out just enough to allow the webbing to ultimately find it's way between two toes. Maybe I have odd feet, but it was an annoyance I couldn't live with. I sent them back and ordered the H2's. They inturn fit great and given the wider webbing there is no peek-a-boo little toe.

Very good fitting
August 27, 2011

Have only had the sandal for couple of days, but fits true to size and is generously wide too. I need a lot of arch support and that is the only area that is a problem for me. Will have to wear orthotic in sandal, but this is a problem I have with nearly any shoe. Otherwise, is comfortable and will be fine. Like it so far.

Great Purchase
February 22, 2012

Im lovin my new Owyhee's! First I was surprised on the extremely light weight design. They are very easy to slide on. I feel they run just a tad large, but snug up fine. They have great traction grip. I really like the cool look, love the color and super comfortable feel.

Great water shoe and better than sandals
June 17, 2011

I really love the toe protection on these and they are comfortable. I noticed that when I snugged them up too much it was an irritation to my pink toe, but I just loosened up a tad, and all is good. The quality seems very good, but I have not had them long enough to know how long they might hold up under lots of use. I think they will do fine.

Couldn't be happier so far. These fit great. You can snug 'em up and go hiking or you can leave 'em loose and just kick around the yard... heck you can even crush the heel (they can take it) and wear them as slippers! Anyway, construction seems top notch and they are very comfy... good stuff

Husband likes them

Purchased the Keen's for my husband, and he is very pleased with them. Says they fit well, and can be adjusted to fit his foot. He is over 6' and wears them for daily wear, and is enjoying them.

The sandals are excellent and are incredibly lightweight. I've been wearing them nonstop since I've got them and they are wearing well. These sandals provided excellent overall protection for my feet. They had impressive traction on wet surfaces, under water, and even on cobbles that had a thin film of algae. i love it!

Pros: Great value
