- recommend me some decent quality sandals with toe protection box ..Keen?
tried a couple of keens which i liked… particularly this “Owyhee” but they’re £80 and I don’t know how durable . what else is out there that’s comfy/well made and stands up to long term regular use.Posted 4 years ago
seen a few others some cheaper in Go outdoors .
Any recommendations ?
Thanks in advance
Keen mega durable I’m talking 10 + years here and sole unit still not worn down but slightly heavy imoPosted 4 years ago

My Keens have lasted really well. I only tend to wear them on ‘backpacking’ holidays but they’ve done many weeks continuous wear on those with no real signs of wear.
Not light, and the disadvantage of the toe box is stuff gets ‘in’ them in a way it doesn’t with more open sandals (and they’re not great in water) but stubbed toes were a fairly regular occurence with TevasPosted 4 years ago
On their third summer and still immaculate. Much more durable than the similar Merrel Chameleons they replaced.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve a pair of Clarks almost identical to those in the first pic. Easily 5 years old and still going strong. Maybe not a strong enough brand…Posted 4 years ago
Another vote for Keen here, I like my Birkenstocks but wanted something more heavy duty and flexible for clambering about and longer walks and the Keens fitted the bill perfectly.
I believe sizing varies though, some models are true to size but I think others you may need to size up I’m sure it says on there website regards model sizing.
I have the ‘Newports’ like below but in black.Posted 4 years ago

Have a pair of above in a khaki type colour. Love them.Posted 4 years ago
Keen are also great if you have slightly wide feet, only negative I have is they can get a bit sweaty without socks in hot weather, when walking all day, (can smell pretty bad too afterwards) mine are six years old and the soles have yet to start to wear.Posted 4 years ago
