I bought these Keen's to ware as dress casual. I am a keen fan, love them. I needed a pair of dress casual boots and when I saw these I thought "wow these are perfect for my needs and their Keen's can't go wrong ". These boots fit my needs but I was expecting the keen comfort that I had found in the hiking boots. (Made in the US) These boots have a decent comfort level at best and the shoe strings are a bit short. I gave them 4 stars because of the lack of comfort, difficult to put on w/o unlacing them and the short strings.
