Top critical review
Absurd sizing - tiny and narrow. Go up 3 half sizes to fit.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 July 2018
This is not my first pair of Keen Sandals. I have a pair of Keen Kanyons which after 8 or 9 years of abuse are beginning to show their age, and need replacing, Unfortunately they seem to have been discontinued, so I ordered these instead, but it took several attempts to get a size that fits. I normally take UK size 8 for my shoes and the Kanyons are a reasonably generous 8. I read the other reviews about sizing, and decided to order 8.5. I couldn't even get them on. I exchanged them for size 9.5 . These fit, length wise, but are a bit narrow. I hope they will stretch and be more comfortable. with use. If so I will update this review. The I've attached photo that the Clearwater CNX size 9.5 is a similar length (slightly shorter) to the Kanyon size 8 and significantly narrower.
Compared with the Kanyons they are somewhat less padded, with a thinner sole, and a slightly more contoured arch. The sole now consists of several pieces instead of the one piece to the Kanyon. As it is the glue bonds between the pieces which are failing on the Kanyons, I suspect the Clearwater CNX will turn out to be less durable but time will tell....
