Great for those who like comfy shoes
Had to replace my last pair of Keen MJs when my new puppy ate the leather straps, and was sad that Keen did not make MJs with that same exact appearance anymore. I reluctantly ordered these and have been very pleased with them since. I'm devoted to Keens because I'm an Alaskan and I need good grip and traction on the bottom of my shoes, which is something that Keen tends to get right. Typically this is the shoe I wear to work every day, and they're comfy for travel and dog walking on good roads. Easy to slip in and out of. They're the kind of shoe that fits well but you can also stretch your toes out inside of them, a good wide and stable shoe. The only drawbacks for me were the grey stripe on the black MJ and the shallow heel bed. But they look really nice and haven't had any problems with them falling off mid-stride. I definitely recommend them.

I love Keen Mary Janes
These shoes are comfortable with their wide toe box. I do love them. I only had one problem and that is I assumed that the size that was right in another style of the Keen Mary Janes would be right in a different style. Wrong. So I had to return and reorder. But altrec did give me a discount on my reorder.

These shoes are AWESOME! The Wife says they feel like 'buttah', and that she couldn't be happier. The fit is size correct. The durability is second to none. The fit and feel and functionality are exactly what she wanted. These shoes were used in a week (on our honeymoon) to hike Muir Woods for 4 hours, walk Stinson Beach for an afternoon, ride bikes for two days in San Francisco, and walk around San Francisco for 9 days during a wet/rainy period. They held up awesome and had good traction, and she could still wear them to Waterbar and Greens for evening meals. Looked GREAT, conservative and fashionable. I am now looking for a set of Keens for myself...

Love these Mary Jane Keens, again
I mostly wear Birkenstocks but had 1 wonderful pair of Seattle Keens which were still in good shape until my puppy got a hold of them...so I set out trying to find more Seattles. I've always worn a 6.5, but after 2 children, I lean more toward a 7 sometimes. I don't remember how I came to decide on a 7.5 for my Seattles after my first child, but I know a requirement was being able to wear thick socks, and the 7.5's worked. Abandoning the Seattle dream which had a wonderful sliding buckle (only still available in size 5's), I decided Toyah's were the next best thing and Altrec had the best price. I was very surprised about others' recommendations to buy smaller sizes because I bought another pair of 7.5's, and they're just fine for me, barefoot or w/socks...and I'm truly not more than a 7. Even though these are sandals, I wear them to dress up, dress down, go hiking on camping trips, walking in the neighborhood, etc....very good for my fibromyalgia body's needs for comfort and support, esp. in the arch!
