I’ve made good use of my Keen Commuter II cycling sandals since they arrived last Christmas. I fitted them with MKS cleats & I’m very happy with them for cycling. What I wasn’t sure about is how they’d go for their “other uses”? That is, bush walking & beach wear (after all, when I’m traveling – especially in our VW T5 Campervan – I want to minimise the variety of footwear I carry).
Early on they got a workout for bush walking & they passed the test very well. The toecap & stiff sole both give good protection & support for rough surfaces. I can now report on their use as beach sandals & they didn’t pass so well. Sandals & soft sand are ok for me but the toecaps retain the sand too much. As for the water test, the upper material took far longer to dry than my usual Teva sandals (& what does that “waterproof” label on the Keen sandals really mean?)
