I use it for city walking and they are quite comfortable. Ironically, these causal keen walking shoes are the most bulky keens I own compared to their hiking shoes and water shoes. I've own them for less than two years and I don't wear them regularly. However, my right toes gets wet now every time I wear them in the rain and not visible damage can be seen! My hiking shoes have gone through longer wear and tougher conditions but they were still fine. Not what I expect from Keens.
