I've worn Keen Presidio shoes for years and have gone through several pairs with slight variations as the style gets updated. They have always been comfortable right out of the box. The new ones I have just received are different. They generally look the same as my last pair, but they are very stiff! So much so that they press on my toes on the flex, lace up too widely over the instep (causing tingling in my toes) and are uncomfortable to walk in. I'm very disappointed. I note that my last pair were made in China and this pair were made in India--perhaps a different material was used? I'm gutted, as these have been my favourite go-to shoes for years.
