Rated 4 out of 5Â by Divegal Great for kayaking, not sure about walking long distances
I bought these shoes principally for an upcoming kayaking trip and they performed very well. The grip was great on wet and dry land and even when the shoes themselves were soaking wet. I was able to stride confidently into shallow water full of pebbles as others winced with bare feet.
On the minus side all the tiny stones came into the shoes and no amount of shaking would release them and the shoes took a while to dry, even in 30 degree heat. I do a lot of walking and didn't find them particularly comfortable for this. The inner sole is quite hard and there is no ankle or foot support. I would therefore recommend them for wet watersports only.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hillbilly Scandals for healthy walking
Walking on the seafront or across rough ground up a mountain? These sandals keep your feet safe and cool. The toes are protected and enclosed and the adjustable strap allows for exact fitting to your heel. There's a comfortable footbed making you feel like you're wearing a well constructed orthotic. The soles are similar to those on your boots for a firm tread on different terrain. However, as well as this, the twin tone colour makes them very attractive, sufficiently for wearing on any walking occasion eg. An amble in the park or walking the dog along the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Maynris Light and attractive
I love Keens and this is the second pair I have bought. Only bought these because my old ones had got so smelly! I prefer these. They are lighter and more attractive but still give you excellent foot support and toe protection.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Devinepraises Labelled as waterproof?
Comfortable shoes, however I find that my feet are too warm when wearing them- which is contradictory as there are holes in the shoes! Also ironic that they are described as waterproof yet there are holes in them! In saying all that they are a supportive shoe and comfortable- however I wouldn't buy them again.

- wore them all the time on our walking holiday on hillsides and over the pebble beaches ( even in the sea at one point.) Comfortable and lightweight . Have recommended to friends and family

It is really difficult to slip into any other footwear after wearing the Keen Whisper.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SwimGuide A non-believer has been converted by a simple pair of sandals
Let me be honest, I've looked at these sandals for quite a long time. I work in and on boats, walk around on slippery, rocky terrain and have needed a sturdy comfortable sandal for quite some time now. Except that I've fallen into the category where "I'm still young and always thought these shoes were just too dorky looking and I don't really need a functional shoe if they look good."
I was a fool. These sandals do their job and more. I've even been wearing them everyday and they're actually a lot cooler looking than I thought. The tread is great and comfortable. I haven't slipped once and the rocks I climb over that I used to winge about might as well be non-existent as these shoes don't even allow me to feel them. They are light and I love love love the gray/teal color combo. They are comfortable from the get go and need no breaking in.
I would highly recommend these sandals and am quite surprised at how great they look and feel. Don't debate it if you're concerned about the looks, your feet will thank you for them. I've received nothing but compliments on them. Now go venture out into the water and woods with ease :-)
