    I bought a pair of these in May and lived in the over the summer. I wore them on a couple of extended cycle tours, hiked in them, kayaked and strolled around. They are comfortable and, after a very brief break-in, fit my foot like a glove...um...that is, if a glove were made for my foot and not my hand. Anyways, I put 'em away during the fall and wore them on a recent trip to Thailand. At the end of that three weeks, the sole started separating from the footbed along the little-toe edge. Seemed strange for new sandals, so I figured it was simply a defect. Called Keen, filled in their warranty info, and I've got a brand new pair on the way. Super sandals and super customer service. The only reason I'm not giving these 5 stars is because I don't know if the problem was the result of a defect or workmanship. Plus, Michelin only gives 3 stars for the best chefs in the world, so 4 stars is pretty darn good for a pair and sandals.

    Bought in Portland at the Keen shop. Used for cycling and walking, maybe 100 days use. Both shoes have failed at the same point, near the heal below the Keen logo at the junction of the material and sole. The material has just disintergrated and pulled away from the sole. Until then really pleased with them but at $1/day I'm a touch disappointed

    Good but not great

    By 

    from Ohio/Bahamas

    Comments about KEEN Men's Clearwater CNX:

    My Keens came in and we're a little tight at first but quickly did mold to my feet shape, none of the crazy size problems that others have had^. I have worn my Keens almost exclusively for about a year (they kicked booty during an internship in the Bahamas [hiking + boating + walking] + my adventurous lifestyle in southern Ohio(same^ and biking) but one of my straps is starting to break off- only has a couple stitches left and it's been less than a year and a half. In addition some of the inside stitching is starting to deteriorate. Is this normal? Not sure I feel a little cheated but maybe I should of gotten a thicker pair for my amount of usage. Regardless the toe protection is phenomenal and the shear weight of the shoes makes it hard to switch to other brands like chacos (...hipsters) so I am conflicted on what to purchase next. If KEEN had something like a 5 year warranty I would continue to come back but one year is short (especially compared to chacos lifetime warranty). In addition the grip and grooves on the bottom have worn down drastically (bikings fault), the tightening string has a few catches, and the originally dark grey/orange has faded to light grey.

    Sounds like I was really hating on them at the end but I love them so much and will purchase some shoegloe to help lengthen their lifetime :)

    Wanted to like them but...too small

    By 

    from Minneapolis, MN

    Pros

    • Almost a good (more minimal) shoe

    Cons

    • Not true to size (short)
    • Too narrow in toe box

    Best Uses

      Comments about KEEN Men's Clearwater CNX:

      I appreciate minimalist shoes and thought these sounded like an effort to lean that direction (lighter, flexible shoe with better road feel and little drop from heel to toe). They claim here (not sure how) they fit true to size but I read elsewhere they run small so I sized up 1/2 (sometimes I wear 11 1/2, sometimes 12; I tried the 12). Those were too short but I didn't want to give up on them so ordered a 13. Those fit in length but the toe box was way too small and compressed my toes. This is where the shoe falls short of minimalist principles. I have very narrow feet; the width was fine in the back but I had to return them for the squeeze they put on my toes. Finally ordered a Newport H2 in size 13 and am happy with the fit.

      NOT TRUE TO SIZE!

      By 

      from Port Orchard, WA

      Comments about KEEN Men's Clearwater CNX:

      These sandals have great fit and finish. The materiel and workmanship is about average.

      This biggest issue is that THEY RUN SMALL by at least a size. The page is sorely mistaken when it says "true to size". Probably should have read the reviews before buying.

      Luckily, Keen is very easy to work with on returns

      Poor quality

      By 

      from Cleveland, OH

      Comments about KEEN Men's Clearwater CNX:

      I bought a pair of these less than a year ago for my college son who rows crew. He wore them a lot and loved the lightweight, close toed option. However, when he came home for the summer, I saw that the stitching on the side on both shoes is completely ripped and falling apart. They are less than a year old! I have a pair of Keen hiking shoes and have been impressed with their quality, but these Clearwater CNX do not meet up with my expectations. The next water shoes I purchase for him will NOT be Keen.
