I have been getting these Keen sandals for years and have absolutely loved them. They have been on many boundary water canoe trips and handled the water and terrain well. Unfortunately the quality must have gone down because when I went to replace a pair, due to old age (at least 5 years) the new pair basically broke - the side binding stitching (by the ankle ) and then the webbing came apart (on both outer sides) after just one season of use! I looked at my sons pair and his are doing the same thing, same spot. This is not what we've come to expect of Keen. We won't be buying these again.
