I love to hike in sandals as they keep my feet cool and allow for freedom when crossing through water. So grateful to Keen for designing a sandal with toe protection as toes are vulnerable when hiking the trails of Alaska. I bought the women's because they came in a cool color and looked cute but my disappointment was complete when I discovered there is no toe perch in these. Something I wish the description had been clear on, and what I never even noticed mentioned. At times these sandals are difficult to keep on, especially when the trail is steep or rocky. As cute as I expected, their functionality is limited. Will most likely order a pair of the men's as they accomplish what I am looking for.
