I have always worn Keens because they are so comfortable and have the straps across the top of my feet and have a lot of cushion. These sandals are so comfortable. I did not need time to break them in and there is support for the arch, across the top of my feet and fantastic cushioning. I have problems with my feet and have showed my doctor, family and friends. I now had two pair and will buy them again when needed!!!Thank you People Footwear!!!!
