    FS Keen commuter sandals

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I used these one summer and have since taken all the clipless off of my bikes. I'm much happier now. Anyway, this could be a good deal for anyone who has wanted to try them. No use in them just sitting in the garage. It says to cold water wash them and air dry, so I did. There is a lot of road tar on one of the plastic things that screw where the clips go. It's just tar and those come off when you put the clips on. If you have any questions please let me know!
    Size: 7 mens. I wear between 8.5 and 9 womens, but can wear an 8 if it's wide. These are wide, that's why I bought the mens. The womens pinched me.

    $20 plus actual shipping.

    Just wanted to say I have these identical sandals, but they are not bike shoes, no cleats.

    I'm wearing them right now, and they are super supportive and comfortable. Great lateral support too. Very good deal.

    I have a pair of those with the cleats and the women's definitely seems to run narrow. I can still wear them , but I would rather have had them be able to accommodate my forefoot more effectively. A review of the Arroyo version of Keens cycling sandal says it is wider in the forefoot, so I ordered a pair from TE. I have arthritis in the ball of my foot and the doc wants me to wear shoes that don't bend there. The keen cycling sandals are a lot stiffer that most other sandals and I'm hoping that will work for me. I might even be able to fit my orthotic in it because the insoles of those are removable.

    Yes, this has been discussed before. Women's Keen Commuter sandals run narrower than regular Keens. I know this because I can wear the Commuters just fine (love them, in fact!), but all other Keens are too wide on me.

    I have both the regular Keens and the commuter sandals. Both squeeze the he** out of my feet. I have medium width feet, but these sandals feel the way my Sidis did. I have only wore the commuters to ride < 10 miles, so no real test, except they are hard to get on and off and they feel tight. I want to bring them for our trip this summer (just put the Frog cleats on), but I wonder how they will feel for rides of 20-50 miles.

    Weird that everyone thinks these are narrow. I don't consider my feet overly narrow, but I guess they are for someone who wears a size 10.5.

    Maybe because my forefoot isn't much wider than mid-foot, and I don't have prominent bunions? (I should, pointe shoes (ballet) at age 10 do that to your feet, but I have a mega skeleton, I guess ).

    I missed the original post. Any chance these are still available?

    Red face a little relief

    The Arroyo Keen cycling sandal is considerable wider in the forefoot. I got a pair from TE. they cover more foot, but I have ugly feet anyway! I use them just to get around in and not to bike, because they are good and stiff, which is a requirement for the arthritis in my forefoot. The bottom under the forefoot also has sort of a rocker bottom which also eases the issues with my foot problem. I got mine from TE and I'm very happy with them. It's hard for me to find shoes that work for me. I can also fit my orthotoic in them, but I haven't worn them for any long periods of standing or walking. I'd probably use my orthopedic granny shoes for that!
