Keens are the best!
December 30, 2010

This is my 7th pair of Keens - I love them all, particularly the tied walking shoes, such as the Toyah. I have two pairs of Presidios, and a pair of Briggs II. These type of Keens fit the best and most accurate. I use them not only for work where I have to be on my feet most of the day, but for walking, running and everyday use. They look more fashionable than running shoes and there is such a variety of styles to choose from. Keens are my favorite shoe!

durable but not bulky
December 25, 2010

great fit for my slightly wide feet. Don't believe these would work well for someone with narrow feet. Nice, light weight. Will work great for casual wear and light hiking in a moderate climate. Mild treads, not for heavy trail use. Plan to get many years of use out of them.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever

The only shoes I want to wear
July 26, 2012

After being a mom of 6, homemaker, family daycare provider, and now an elementary school teacher again for the last 6 years, I started with problems in my lower back and hip. I also was having some arthritis in my one foot. I've been in physical therapy for almost a year and am thankfully doing much better, avoiding back surgery! Anyway, my physical therapist recommended the Keen brand for me. This pair is my second pair, in a different color. I have worn the Keen Toyah everyday to school and almost everywhere since January. The stability of the sole, and arch is great. The cushioning is great for my toe and hip arthritis. My original pair has held up wonderfully, I just wanted to get another color to wear in summer and to start the new school year off. Great price on Altrec! Saved a bunch.

Very comfortable daily wear shoe
June 12, 2013

After my first pair of Keen (Presidio) I discovered that KEENs are made for me. This is my 3rd pair, the Toyah is lighter than the Presidio, just as comfortable. Right out of the box no break-in time required. They hold great in rainy weather, keeping my feet dry. Great with jeans, khakis or shorts. I wear them every day 10+ hours a day, and could keep on going...

Toyah Shoe
October 16, 2011

Most Keen shoes are great. This is very comfortable, well designed and lasts. The shoe doesn't need "breaking in", just wear and enjoy. It is versatile for casual wear or is dressy enough for most occasions. I know several feople who have bought this shoe and no negative comments at all. I definitely recommend it.

Great, but takes time to break-in
November 09, 2010

I found these shoes to be a little stiff with some break-in time. I have narrow feet, so like to pull the laces nice and tight (esp because Keen shoes are a little wide on me). In doing so, the stiff tongue rubbed the top of my feet a tad bit. Nevertheless, they are still quite comfortable and getting more so each time I wear them, and look great walking in the city or along the wooded creek. I got the slate black (dark brown) color and it has gone great with khaki pants or light/dark jeans. I normally wear size 7 lace-less shoes and 7.5 for running/hiking shoes. Like other Keens I've gotten, I fit 7.5 in these.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

Great Shoe!
July 30, 2012

I love this shoe! I wanted a walking shoe that was both attractive and comfortable. This shoe is very well made and sturdy with good support. It runs very true to size. I couldn't be happier with this purchase!

Great all-around shoe!
April 05, 2011

I recently purchased my first pair of Keen Toyah's and I couldn't be happier. With the amount of travel I do, these were exactly what I was looking for. The support is by far better than any other pair of shoes I own. After my first purchase, I returned to and ordered an additional 2 pair in different colors.

Another great Keen shoe
March 06, 2011

These shoes are cute and great for long walks. I took a five mile walk the first day I wore them and my feet felt great during the walk and after. I think these shoes are a lot easier to break in than the Keen Presidio pair that I had before buying the Toyah pair.

Not Quite What I Wanted
October 09, 2013

I wanted a shoe I could wear for my daily walk that would keep my feet dry in the rain. My daughter has these and recommended them. They fit fine, but they are hard and made the bottom of my feet hurt about half way through my 3 mile walk. I got some Gel Insoles and removed the insoles that came in the shoes. That worked to keep my feet from hurting on the bottom, but the right shoe rubbed on the bottom of my ankle bone and made a sore. So, I put the original insoles back in and put the gel insoles in on top of them. Having 2 insoles in the shoes make them kind of snug, but they lift my foot up enough that the shoe doesn't rub on my ankle bone. I think with these adjustments, I will be able to wear them for my daily 3 mile walks. If not, I will just wear them for casual when I am not doing a lot of walking.

Pros: like the rounded toe, waterproof, Cons: too hard need more cushion

Great for Comfort and Support
December 27, 2010

This is my third pair of Keens in this style. I also have a pair of rugged sandles by Keen. I am on my feet all day for work and have found that by the end of the day my feet are not tired and sore. I have wide feet, flat feet and need arch support and these shoes do the trick. These are my preferred shoe to wear to work and while doing errands. They are very comfortable and the style goes well with jeans or cords. For as much as I wear them, the value is great and I tend to be rather hard on shoes and they hold up pretty well. They only problem I've had is on one of the pairs is that the eyelet gromet has come loose off the shoe (it is the hole protector on the shoe where you thread the lace through). All I do is push it back into place while tying the shoe. Other than that, these are one of my favorite shoes to wear.

Keens are awesome!!
March 10, 2011

Have owned Keens in the past and I really like that I can wear them all day in comfort and have no foot, back or knee pain! I was looking for a particular color that I could not find locally and ran across exactly what I was looking for on the Altrec site so took a chance and ordered them. When the order came it was exactly what I wanted and the shipping was fast. I am planning on ordering another color soon. Altrec has an excellent selection of the outdoor products I buy and I have already ordered other merchandise and have not been disappointed!

I'm on my feet all day and these shoes are so so comfy. Great support and my feet never get hot. True to size. Best prices on the web and fast shipping too! I love them.

I start my day off w/ Keen and I end it w/ them as well. They are the first thing I put on when I get out of bed in the morning (my Yogui) and the last thing I take off before retiring for the evening (my Toyahs.) In short, Keen are the ONLY shoes I choose to wear. I wear a size 7.5 and I have found that they are true to size, the toe box is very roomy and have great protection. I work in the medical field and my feet take a real beating being on them constantly for up to 12 hrs a day and/or greater. As for my frame, being "short-n-wide" the Toyahs have enough support that I no longer suffer from back pain. The arch support is phenomenal (I also suffer from plantar fasciitis) and they never need to be broken in. When I ordered my first pair of Toyahs I chose the Urban Chic color as they looked darkish gray on MY computer screen, they ended up being an olive green color so I reordered a black pair which is one of the colors required for my job. If you are looking for black do NOT order the slate black because they are NOT black they are brown in color. I personally think that tennis shoes look unprofessional even when worn with scrubs, the Toyahs however are classy enough to wear casually or for work. Thank you Altrec for being there for both my husband and I so we can purchase our Keen shoes at a great price. Shaw

Best Shoes
January 24, 2011

I love these shoes!! They are comfortable and have excellent arch support. I wore these to work the day after I got them and my feet felt great! I would recommend these to shoes to anyone. The quality is excellent and these shoes look really good with jeans or cargo pants. I will definitely buy another pair of Keen shoes.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value, very comfortable

Toyah shoe by Keen
December 05, 2012

This is a great shoe! Usually wear the Presidio model but thought I would try these because I could get a particular color I wanted not available in the Presidio at the time. Am very happy with these shoes. Just as comfy as the others I am used to from Keen. I highly recommend this shoe.

February 03, 2012

I have a wide foot and high arches so I don't have an easy time buying shoes that fit. Keens are my shoe. I wear them all day everyday. I can order them without worry. Altrec has great prices, fast service and a great return policy. Altrec is my first choice.


Comfortable Fashion
March 07, 2011

This is an extremely comfortable shoe that can be used for walking or even a business casual day at the office. The shoe is comfortable, but I would recommend getting a 1/2 size larger than your normal size for the best fit. It's a great shoe. I love it.

Attractive, Sturdy, Comfy Shoes
November 08, 2010

I really love these shoes. Pros: pretty much love everything about them. The arch support is just right, the leather is quality, has padded ankles, and is well insulated. They look good and feel solid. I am constantly complimented on them. I got this as a winter work shoe and I have no doubt they will be perfect in the cold. Cons: The tongue of the shoe takes some getting used to - it's sort of pointy on the sides. It has very little ventilation - which will keep feet warm in the winter (hopefully) but will make for hot (read: sweaty) feet all other times. And the shoelaces are flimsy, I'd be surprised if they lasted 3 months.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: poor ventilation

Excellent walking shoes from KEEN
September 03, 2012

I was looking for a comfortable walking shoe. I am a big Keen fan so I thought I would try these out based on the positive reviews. They are very comfortable and nice and wide in the toe area. The leather lining is soft. It is great to find a shoe made of leather on the inside and outside. I plan on taking these shoes with me on my many travels.

Pros: comfortable from the start

This was the first pair of Keens I've bought and I will continue to buy more. They are very comfy and perfect for walking in. They are the best shoes I've ever had. I bought the black pair and the color looks great.

Great shoe
March 12, 2012

I have tried numerous shoe in a search for a comfortable pair for everyday wear-and after dozens of tries I have found it! I have worn these shoes nonstop since they arrived a week ago. I wear orthotics and the Toyah works great with them. They are so lightweight but very supportive. I need lots of ball of foot cushioning and these fit the bill. I find them to be true to size in both length and width compared to my other keen shoes. Rest assured to say a shoe is comfortable to me is a rare thing indeed. I bought the black olive color which is very versatile and plan to order another pair soon.

Pros: great cushioning, lightweight, great support

Hit the ground walking in these!
April 21, 2011

The person who expedited shipment (next day) to me on these Keen shoes deserves credit for my review simply because without his help, I wouldn't have purchased these wonderful, comfortable, go everywhere shoes. The next day when I received my shoes, I put them on and walked 1 1/2 miles in them. They were that comfortable and I wore them everywhere on my trip. They look good with jeans and khaki's alike. Love the style and my feet love the fit. So glad I found Altrec!

The Keen Toyah has a great feel. The heel is rolled, the arch support is great, and the tread is for outdoors. The shoe is casual yet can be worn to look more dressy than tennis shoes.

Perfect shoes for exploring the city
November 09, 2011

I have a rule not to pack new shoes for traveling; I have to break them in locally just in case. I took a chance and packed these after receiving them the day before a visit to downtown San Fran. I didn't regret it at all. They are practical and stylish matching any casual outfit, but even more importantly they were comfortable and supportive from day 1. They have great traction for sure footing in all weather and I really love the olive color. The size is true (perhaps running on the wide side alittle).

Pros: style color, comfort, traction/foot protection, Cons: toe is alittle wide

First pair of alot of other reviews on the shoe before I purchased. I am so totally happy with this product. I am on my feet from 5:00am to 7:00 pm five days out of the comfort is the main concern. I do not usually buy a shoe without trying on first...but the reviews convinced me to try this shoe. Glad I did! True to size, comfortable, and a cute shoe to top. Might even buy in another color!!

Great Walking Shoe!
March 28, 2012

I've had several Keen shoes in the past... This is my third pair that I absolutely LOVE! I am a Medical proffessional and walk all day long taking care of patients. Never are my feet sore! Lots of toe room and support for long 12 hour shifts on hard floors! There's an old saying..."no foot, no horse" Well, it works the same with humans, "no great shoes, no comfortable happy worker!"

Pros: great style, comfort, Cons: none

This is the second pair of Women's Toyah Shoe I have purchased. The first pair was three yrs ago and I'm still wearing them. These shoes are extremely comfortable, for walking, hiking and just for everyday wear. The arch support is just perfect even if I am on my feet all day. I find ordering a 1/2 size up fits better for me.

Women's Toyah Shoe
January 01, 2012

I work a the local library and I am on my feet all day and tried other shoes before trying the keen's. I have keen sandals and hoped that the shoes would be as comfortable. I chose the black color and wore them a week before realizing that I needed more pairs in different colors for my wardrobe. The style of the shoe is casual enough for jeans, but dressy enough for the library. Keep in mind that you may have to order a half size larger than most other brands. As for comfort, I work on a carpeted concrete floor and they are the best shoe I have worn. After a few hours you will notice the difference. Keen's tend to be a bit higher in price, but the comfort and quality is well worth it. They really hold up over time and outlast the cheaper shoes.

Pros: comfort/quality, Cons: none

March 13, 2011

I had a pair of Slate colored Toyahs and liked them so much that I ordered a pair in Brindle. I thought the Brindle would be lighter colored but it wasn't a lot different. The sole and shoestrings were lighter but not the leather. I would wear these everyday if I could get them to match my work clothes. The insides are smooth and soft and the support is fantastic. I can't say enough about these shoes. They run true to size. Plenty of width.
