Keen Sizing Chart
4.6 out of 5
Would not stay on :(
October 14, 2010
This was the first pair of Keens that I bought, and I was very excited to try them out. Unfortunately, they just didn't fit. Contrary to what others have said, I thought that these sandals really slipped a lot. They would not stay on my feet. I wear an 8.5, but I couldn't tell whether these shoes were too big or too small. Maybe the fit was right, but the slides just aren't for me. It's a shame because they were really cute.Cons: Bad design
Low profile keens
June 26, 2012
These sandals were amazing right out of the box. They looked great and were really comfortable. They are perfect for walking around the house and for running errands or for going on vacation. The look of the design is great, however, these sandals are not for people with a high instep. They fit pretty tight on the feet even if you order a bigger size. They are narrower than the usual keen style, but for people who prefer that, it's perfect.Pros: comfortable, attractive, great quality, Cons: very low profile
Nice lightweight Keen slip on
January 26, 2011
Comfy and cute. Not great for any hardcore outdoor activity, but perfect for a quick slip on. Far less bulky than other Keens, which is what I was looking for. I got the gray/berry, which is an attractive neutral combination. The shoe fit and was comfortable right out of the box. The sole is a little stiff and less cushioned than would be perfect in my opinion, but otherwise a great everyday, casual sandal with light outdoor and/or travel capabilities that I'll wear often.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
Love these shoes!
August 11, 2010
I was looking for a closed toe shoe for work that was more like a sandal. These are perfect. They are like walking on memory foam. I am getting ready to purchase my 4th pair.
Keen whisper slides
July 30, 2011
Altrec offered the best price for the Keen whisper slides I wanted! Shopping was a breeze and they came right when I expected them too! What a deal. Keen has become my go-to brand. Most comfortable shoes I own now. Sure simplifies my shopping life.Pros: comfortable!, Cons: none
Keen Summer Sandals
April 06, 2010
I absolutely love my new Keen Whisper Slide Sandals. Keen shoes are so comfortable, I'm really looking forward to wearing them this summer and I just love the new Lime color.
A Dream to your feet
June 05, 2010
These are true to size and extremely comfortable for all weather conditions. People who need added support can wear, too. You are missing out if you don't try Keen's.
August 01, 2011
I love Keen shoes and this one is one of the best designs yet. The only real negative I can find is I have a tall instep and it pinches a little across the top of my foot, but I feel this will lessen with wear.
worth every cent
April 15, 2010
I'm very happy with my first Keens. The black slide sandals are nice enough for my job, with closed toes which I like. I walk a lot on concrete floors. I have worn these all day, all week, and my feet never get tired, achy or hot. Worth the money! I'll probably buy another color.
Straps are Weird
July 11, 2011
I was trilled to try a slide-on Keen for quick trips to the mail box, get the newspaper, etc., but I was disapointed in the style of the Whisper. The way the straps come across the front of your toes causes your baby toe to get squeezed out. So basically one toe is sticking out of the side of the sandal. Weird. Maybe its just the shape of my long toes? I had to return them. I'm sticking with the Newports.Pros: comes in a slide, nice colors
Love Keen Whisper
January 21, 2011
These are the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned. The heel is well padded for exceptional comfort, easy slip on. I wear them all the time because of the comfort. n, The inside can get smelly if your feet sweat or you wear them daily, however, a quick trip through the washing machine fixes that right away....they look like new and smell fresh once again. These are the third pair I am ordering...I JUST LOVE THESE SANDALS!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value
Love love love
March 28, 2011
These are my second pair of Keen whisper sandals and I have been so happy with them. My first pair have the back-strap and are still going strong. I got them for wearing on trails with water crossings. I got these whisper slide sandals so I'd have another comfortable pair of sandals to wear in Europe. Highly recommend. They feel like a tennis shoe but they're a sandal!
July 06, 2010
Love these! Been a Keen fan for several years. These are the first slides I've bought. Comfortable and true to fit!
Best Sandals Ever
June 14, 2011
These are the greatest sandals ever. They are not only comfortable and come in great colors, they're perfect for hot, humid conditions. After a pouring rain in which it was too hot to wear closed shoes, these dried off instantly and cleaned off just as easily. The width is also a bit adjustable so they'll fit comfortably without flying off since they're slides. I will definitely buy another pair of these. Note: the other reviewers are correct. These tend to run a half size small. Thanks!
Very happy with sandals
January 26, 2011
These fit well out of the box and are very practical as well as nice looking for casual wear. Pros: anatomically proportioned for foot health; provides toe protection around the barn; wet weather no problem; slip into them and go. Since these are new, I can't vouch for their wear and rated 'durability' on past experience with my Keen Newports that have worn well for kayaking, hiking and general 'living' for over 3 years now.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, comfort, toe protection
Great for hiking, travel, even a bit dressy
June 22, 2011
I've been a fan of Keens for quite awhile and really love my newest purchase, the Whisper Slide sandal. Very cute sandals, lightweight, & comfortable. Because this sandal does fit snug at the front of the foot, you may want half size larger because there is no strap at the heel to keep your foot from sliding back a bit. I usually wear a size 6 1/2 but I think a 7 might be better. I'm taking these along on an extended trip that will include much walking but they are cute enough to wear with dresses as well. Because they don't have a heel strap I wouldn't recommend them for any serious hiking but this makes them a breeze to slip on and off when going through airport security.Pros: lightweight, comfortable, cute, versatile, Cons: fits a tiny bit small
September 25, 2010
easy slides for the 'need to go' quickly sandal. A true Keen that is waterproof & comfortable for around town, traveling, & light hiking. I returned them only due to my left little toe rubbed the outside strap--of course, my left foot is shaped slightly 'weird'.Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Great value
June 21, 2010
I love, love, love them. They are super comfortable, and they were shipped and received quickly & exactly when promised. 2 of my sisters are now going to order them, and I am also thinking about another pair!
August 06, 2012
I purchased these slides because I thought they would be perfect for an upcoming beach vacation. They were pretty true to size, I did compare the size on the size chart to a different pair of shoes that I found the measurements for online - I ordered a 7, which I normally wear in flats, etc. They were pretty light weight and seemed like they would stay on while walking (I only wore them inside to try them out). Unfortunately, I decided to return them since it didn't seem like I would wear these that much. They're cute if you're going walking in/around water, but I didn't see myself wearing these anywhere else, they were just a little too odd looking on me. I might try the Keen Paradise, since that seems like it would go with more outfits, etc. Also, I have a somewhat narrow foot, not sure how these would work on wide feet, although the pull string across the top is adjustable.Pros: lightweight, good if you plan to get wet, Cons: a bit odd looking
Always a great fit
October 07, 2012
I love these Keens - they have become my favorite, so I have 3 pairs. I am normally a 8.5 narrow to medium, but always order an 8 in Keens, and they fit perfect.
August 12, 2012
I ordered the Purple Whisper Slide as soon as I saw the color. In fact, I ordered 2 pair, since purple is my favorite color. These slides have been my go to shoes all summer. They are so comfortable! I ordered a half size larger because I wore the Orchid last summer, and know they run a tad small. I can not say enough good things about this slide. My feet are so happy. Altrec had free shipping for me and they came so quickly. Good deal.Pros: comfortable right out of the box, great fit, gorgeous color
Keen Whisper Side Sandal
August 14, 2011
Order a 1/2 size bigger than your normal shoe size. Shoe is very comfortable and Keens are a great investment. Keens also are great for my daughter who is learning to walk.
Absolutely worth the money
April 15, 2010
I'm very happy with my first Keens. The black slide sandals are nice enough for my job, with closed toes which I like. I walk a lot on concrete floors. I have worn these all day, all week, and my feet never get tired, achy or hot. Worth the cost! I'll probably buy another color.
Comfortable and cute
August 23, 2010
This is my first pair of Keens. They are comfortable. The slide adjustment is nice to give the shoes a better fit. I bought my usual 8 and wish the shoe was a bit longer, but going up a half size would make it too big. I have a narrow foot and these are not too wide. I bought the green ones and I love the color. Overall, a nice shoe
My new favorite summer shoe!
July 06, 2010
These are the best summer shoes I've found! I can't stand flip-flops, and these are a great alternative. They are comfortable, adjustable, and I am able to wear them all day without my feet hurting. I would recommend them to anyone. I now have three pair all in different colors, just because I like them so much.
1st pair of Keens and I love them
April 22, 2010
I have waited a long time to make the investment in a pair of keens. They fit great and the price was excellent. The only problem that I have it that the color borders on the line of fluorescent Orange. They are a little bright but extremely comfortable!
June 25, 2010
if feet are wide, you may find them a bit narrow
July 20, 2011
This is a great slide. Tends to run a bit narrow and definately small. I have other Keen sandals and still had to order a half size up to make it fit. But these are definately comfortable!!! I love Keen sandals
August 13, 2012
Love these slides! Comfortable enough to put on and imediately spend the day walking. I have other Keen shoes so this was a favorite brand. Fit is great, although a size larger than other brands. Order was prompt and correct!
great slide-in shoes
February 17, 2012
This is the third pair of these sandals I have purchased over the past couple of years. They fit perfectly and can really be taken through the wringer. I keep my old pair around for dirty work and have a new pair I wear almost every day. Altrec was good about exchanging the first pair I bought for a better size with no hassle. I wear a 6.5 - 7, depending on the shoe. In this sandal I needed a 7.
Women's Whisper Slide..a comfortable walking shoe
July 19, 2011
I have tried numerous brands of shoes for walking comfort. Nothing compares to the Keen shoes in general. I have previously bought other Keen sling shoes and find them to be very comfortable, but sometimes time consuming when trying to get the sling on in a hurry. They fit fine once they are on. HOWEVER, with the slide you get the same comfort, but a much faster on and off. They are also a bit dressier than the sling model, due to the fact that the toe shape is a bit more streamlined. I usually take a size 7.5 shoe, but found that the Keen's run a bit short. A size 8 fits fine.
Great Pair of Sandals!
July 18, 2011
I love these sandals! This is the 2nd pair I have purchased this summer. I took them out of the box and wore them immediately- no break in required! They provide comfort AND support. I have foot problems and with these sandals I can walk all day without any discomfort. They are the prefect sandal for traveling. Great footwear!
May 08, 2010
Love the Wisper Slides. Great color. Confortable and stylish. Can't find in stores, so have to order online. Highly recommend Alrec.com.
I live in these
April 02, 2011
Very comfy and you can get them wet, they dry very quickly. Also, they run true to size, so get your normal shoe size. Quality shoe, I highly recommend.
Keen oh Keen what have you done.......
April 23, 2012
I own several pairs of Keen shoes (clogs, sandals, snow boots). I wanted to love these sandals but they were way too narrow. Why did Keen have to go and change a good thing? People are used to the Keen brand fitting a certain way and they had to go throw us through a loop. I returned them....
July 18, 2012
I personally like the width of the whisper slides, but I wish I had gotten the regular whisper sandal, rather than the slide. I think that the slide is a little noisy when I walk, a little "slap, slap, slap", and I like the look of the full sandal better. I would recommend getting the full sandal instead of the slide.
April 24, 2011
Once I got them adjusted to fit well and stay on...I love them! Will order another pair. They allow your feet to breathe and have more protection than a regular sandal.
June 29, 2011
I ordered the Keen Whisper Slides in the coffee liqueur color. The color is a little darker than shown, with the center tongue area being darker than the side straps. While they are darker than I wanted, they are still quite attractive. Also, they do run short in length, and I needed to order a half size up from my normal size. They are extremely comfortable, no break in time required. They dry quickly and are still comfortable after getting wet. Overall, an excellent sandal.Pros: durable, comfortable, quick drying
March 28, 2011
Very nice sandals , very comfortable . Do need to buy a half size larger to wear as other customers have suggested. Went to florida last year and everyone was wearing them . I am going to seattle this year and needed something that would not hurt my feet , they feel great now.Pros: good price, Cons: none
September 22, 2011
Love the look, feel and comfort factor. I usually have to break new shoes in gradually but not the case with the Whisper Slide. I never want to take them off. The adjustable strap keeps the shoe securely fastened to my feet with no slipping or sliding that is quite common with most slide in shoes. I upsized a half and the fit is perfect. I highly recommend this shoe. Will definately purchase another pair.Pros: great value!, Cons: none
I love them!
July 29, 2012
Easy to slip on and go. I wear them everywhere and I don't have to worry about getting them wet. I have bunions, so I have to have good, supportive shoes. Both my podiatrist and my physical therapist said these Keen sandals are good for my feet and they are! When my feet are happy, I am happy!
Beautiful and comfortable!
May 15, 2010
The color is beautiful and they are so light and comfortable. I have been wearing them around the house until the weather gets warm enough. I know that I will add these to my Keen summer rotation. Thank you Altrec for carrying my size - 5s are hard to find!
April 08, 2010
The sandals fit true to size. I feel I can walk all day in them. I love the slides, as I have a pair of Newports which have lasted 5 years and found myself using them like slides. Great to see Keen has expanded into a huge selection of styles. Love it. The only issue I have, which is small, is that my feet a very narrow and when the pull cord is pulled tight, it hangs over the top of the shoe. A simple solution is to dismantle the clip at the top and trim the cord to size.
July 23, 2010
These were really cool and comfortable. I have plantar fasciitis so didn't quite work for me as I couldn't keep them on. But, that said, these are terrific and "smart" shoes.
August 27, 2010
I had to send them back, they were to small. Order 1/2 size bigger. Keen is the #1 shoe in my closet
love to buy next time
September 16, 2010
i love this shoes .it is so comfortable i can walk everywhere with them .i got it in blue color and planning to buy different color for next year. if you have wide feet it might not for youPros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
September 16, 2011
Initially ordered the brindle/orchid color and found it to be more taupe with hints of olive rather than khaki (ish) as it appeared online. I replaced it with the coffee/liquor color which also seems a little 'off' from the color online, but preferable. I am a small size 8, can often wear 7.5 and ordered 8.5 upon the advice of prior reviews. This was great advice - order .5 - 1 full size up as these run small. Width is semi-adjustable. They are super comfy, but I have yet to test them a full day. Wish they would make colors: Navy & true Khaki instead of such wild colors - that don't match anything.Pros: comfy, Cons: colors
June 01, 2011
I usually wear a size 7-7.5 so I ordered the 7.5 after trying on a friends size 8 which were a little too large. The pair of sandals that I received were just the size of my foot and I was afraid that my heel would slip off the bottom while walking. So I returned that pair and I am buying the next size up. All my friends swear by their keens and recommend them to anyone. I can't wait to get my new pair.Pros: comfortable, Cons: sizes run small
This sandal is great!
April 29, 2010
I really love this sandal. It's true to size and very comfortable. I'm a teacher and have really enjoyed wearing these. I intend to order another pair soon. I really wanted the taupe but was unable to get it.
July 14, 2010
Great slip on shoe that works well in a variety of settings. Nice alternative to flip flops during the Summer and great arch support for those of us with flat feet.
May 08, 2010
I love these sandals! I have several pair of Keens, but I especially like these because they are not as clunky as other Keen sandals. I wear them whenever I can. I bought the brindle/orchid color - this color combination is fairly neutral and can be worn with just about anything. I highly recommend them.
light and comfortable
June 23, 2010
These are great, true to size, light and comfortable. My foot does tend to slide out the back a bit so I'm still working on getting the strap adjustment right.
the great shoes!!!
March 20, 2011
I love keen shoes!! They are really practical and stylish... this is my 3rd on, definitely love to wear it. I used for all other place except for work, quite pricing but never regret to choose it!!
August 11, 2011
Shoes wear wonderfully, are very comfortable, wash up easily, and just don't seem to wear out. Shoes were delivered in a timely fashion and the sale price was great.
November 19, 2010
This shoe has a great fit, very comfortable, can wear all day and still feel good. It's great to be able to throw them in the washing machine when thay get dirty.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever
March 29, 2011
Ordered my right size, but these slides run small. Had to send them back. Really liked them and will order a bigger size when they credit me my money back.
Perfect for the Pregnant
May 20, 2011
I got these for my pregnant daughter-in-law. She loves them as she can adjust the width depending upon any foot swelling. While very light, they provide good arch support.Pros: confortable, adjustable witdth, Cons: none
very very comfortable
July 12, 2012
this is my 2nd keen whisper purchase. my first purchase was whisper sandles and love them so much that i decided to try the whisper slides from Altrec because they had the BEST price. i just received them today and they are a perfect fit. after reading all the reviews, i purchased 1/2 size up (just like with the sandles). can't wait to take on my trip to panama.Pros: no need to break them in, Cons: none
Keen Whisper Slide sandals are perfect!
May 03, 2010
Love these sandals. The weight is just perfect..a bit lighter than the pair I got last summer. Also want to thank Altrec for the fast service. I received them in less than a week and I live on the "other" coast!
Comfort you cant find at stores
June 14, 2010
At least I couldn't. Went to all the usual places, like REI, but only Altrec could deliver! Look less clunky than the slip on version of the Newport,which I also have, and same great comfort and ability to adjust with the elastic cord. Expect to get a lot of wear out of these all summer long.
Perfect for travel
March 09, 2011
I bought these keens for my first trip to India. They are super comfortable and needed very little breaking in. I was a little worried about wearing flip flops, but the Keens have a very secure fit. I have been wearing them on my 3-mile a day walks and have not had any problems at all. I usually go for cheaper shoes, but my keens were def worth every penny.
keen whisper slide
June 09, 2012
I absolutely love these sandals. Comfortable right out of the box. As others have suggested, they do run short. Do size up a half or full size. They are also on the narrow side. That was excellent for me because I have narrow feet. Will buy another pair when new colors come out.
Another Excellent Keen Sandal
July 28, 2011
I bought these whisper slides just to kick around the house with, but they are so comfy and sturdy I take long walks in them! They are the usual Keen shoe- sturdy and sporty. The slip on design is easy on and off your foot, but fits well enough that the shoes stay put on your feet. They are similar construction and materials to the Newport H2, so they are a great water sandal as well! I have yet to be dissapointed by any Keen I have worn- I have now owned eight pairs of Keens and counting.Pros: sturdy design, sporty looks, Cons: not for narrow feet with a high arch
August 01, 2012
Absolutely love this sandal! I wear a size 6 with a wide toe box and have a poor arch. What is good about this sandal you can adjust the sandal to fit your foot. I use them when I go shopping or on vacation when I go sightseeing.
August 07, 2012
Because of problems with my feet, there are very few sandals that are comfortable for me. When I saw these I took a chance, knowing that they could be returned if they didn't work out. What a surprise! They are the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned. They can be adjusted to fit foot width, and are washable, too. I recommend these to anyone who needs good arch support!Pros: good support for problem feet.
