Years ago I had a similar pair of flip flops. Thick rubber soles and a footbed that offered support. I would wear them everywhere, for light hikes, all day around the city, and my feet never got tired. It didn't flare up my old foot injury and my feet were just happy. Then my young dog decided they would make a good treat and they were done. I looked for a long time for an appropriate replacement but never found any. Until now. I ordered these immediately since I love all of my keen sandal/shoes and was pretty sure I would love these...and I do! They fit like a glove, stay on my feet, support my feet and they are pretty light for how rugged they are! I am so so so so so happy. I got them in the blue/green colour instead of black since there was a comment that the black soles were staining some people's feet. I love the colour even more than I did online. Honestly, pay full price and you won't be disappointed - I wasn't! Keen, please NEVER STOP MAKING THESE. I'll be devastated. If you do, please tell me so I can just buy enough pairs for the rest of my life. No joke.
