Bought these (along with some hiking shoes and semi-casual shoes) for a trip I took a week ago. Am very happy with them. Super comfortable, cool, well-made, and even grip wet rocks and pavement. Like I said for the other KEEN shoes I purchased...Made in the USA, well-made, comfortable on the first use. Perfect! I'm buying KEEN from now on as long as they keep up the most excellent work. They are obviously proud of their products...and it shows.
