I have finally found the right shoes for me. After years of trying different brands (Shimano, Giro, Specialized) these are the ones that just work. They have the Boa style adjustment which work better then anything I have used in the past. Also, there is a heel cup adjustment, should you need it. I actually tried them on at the store, and they felt a little tight, but broke in very quickly. I find them so comfortable, that I often forget that they are on, both on, and off the bike. The sole stiffness seems to give good power transfer so much so, that I switched my road bike to a single sided SPD pedal and use them on it,as well as my gravel bike. The only down side is cost, they are by far the most expensive shoes that I have ever bought. That said, the build quality and comfort are worth it. Plus, the shoes have replaceable bottom lugs, and Boa system, so it should be a long time before they ever need full replacement.
I have normal width feet and do not find these sandals too narrow. They are more narrow than a Newport, but a cycling sandal has to be. I still have (and use) the original commuters - the reason I bought these is that I was afraid Keen would quit making cycling sandals and I really like them so I didn't want to be without.
The Keens are awesome, well designed for warm rides. Yes they are a bit narrow but so are your regular cycling shoes. I like them a bit tight while riding and then I loosen them up and walk around in them for hours. Perfect for warm weather and fun to wear. Give em a chance and you'll love 'em too!
For the past five years I have happily biked in Keen sandals. They've been great, particularly on warm summer days. In the last few women's biking sandals have dropped off the market. I wanted to get a new pair and was pleasantly surprised to find this model on the Western site. They fit my medium width foot comfortably. Bought a half size larger for the right fit lenghtwise. Cleats were easy to install and are recessed enough not to screech when you walk on floors. No break in period. Good support without the shoe feel. Recently wore the new sandals with light wool socks on a cool day.
