Boy.  Hasn’t it it been such a miserably long, cold winter?  It is May and only now does it feel like we’ve experienced a hint of spring. 

Come Spring I feel like I can get back into my usual routine which usually includes walking the baby for an hour or two outside every day.  Of course this year I have a brand new baby to bring along, which makes things just a little more fun.  It’s nice to get back into that particular routine after being cooped up all winter.  All of us are itching for the outdoors.

So, can you blame for taking advantage of the very first truly warm, almost hot day and go for a walk with Ava while Keira napped?  I grabbed my brand new KEEN sandals and hit the street with Ava in her stroller to go for a walk down the trail system near me.

It’s nice living in a big city for the convenience and the variety of entertainment and shopping options, but what I love about my city is all the green!  Of course, now that we have warm weather things are truly starting to get green again as I witnessed on my walk.

I love walking as far as I can down the trail and just taking in nature and the quiet around me.  What I don’t about walking the trail inevitably comes down to footwear.

You know that first time you wear that new pair of sandals?  You get going and going and suddenly you realize that your foot is in extreme pain between lacerations and blisters.  I used to think that was just a necessary part of sandal season.

Imagine my pleasure when I got as far as I had planned to walk with Ava without even a hint or sign of a blister or laceration. New sandals without having to pay for them with blood and tears, what a wonder!

After a long Winter of not walking, I was also pleased to find that I wasn’t feeling fatigued at all yet.  I was even a little bit tempted to keep going. 

Now KEEN explains all this, saying that they have lightened up the fit and protection they are known for to make every step a natural connection.  The sandal enhances the natural flexibility of the foot and also improves ground contact.

On top of all that, these KEEN sandals are just delightfully comfortable.  The arches are just perfect for my feet and the drawstrings ensure a great fit. Thanks to the design of the KEEN sandals I also didn’t have to worry about the rougher type terrain of the trail.

Since I had gotten as far as I had planned, I took the time to sit and relax on a bench along the trail with Ava and just really kick back (literally) and take in nature.

I was really able to take notice of spring starting to set in and taking hold.  Buds on the branches, the grass returning to its usual green and birds all around singing happily.

I was seeing the signs of spring everywhere kissed with the promise of summer coming on its heels.

I can’t wait for the continued warm weather and for the chance to go on more walking adventures through my beautiful city in my comfortable new KEEN Sandals.

Don’t these views just make you want to get up from that couch, and away from that desk to go and see where your feet will take you?

It is wonderful what can happen when you can walk in comfort and just follow your feet with KEEN!

  1. Love, love, love the look of your sandals! They would be so awesome for hikes! I have lots of great places to hike near me so I definitely need to look at getting something like your Keen’s. Love the colour too! Great review 🙂

  2. I sure could use a pair of KEEN sandals myself! I would never think of heading out on a long walk with sandals on but seems like KEEN is the exception. Thanks for the great review!

  3. I’d be “keen” to check out their sandals; I need a pair of closed-toe ones for hiking! If you’re wondering where I’ll be for the next hour, you’ll find me browsing their website!

  4. I love the pop of colour! I had a conversation with my Chiropractor the other day about finding a strong shoe with a arch, I will have to check these out. Love the stroller picture she is adorable!

  5. I fell in love with a pair of Keens years ago because they were my favourite colour (khaki green) and fit so nicely and didn’t look like every other running shoe available. They were also super sturdy and lasted me for a long time. These sandals look just as awesome. I totally need to get myself a pair! 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  6. I love my Keens. They are exactly what you said. They hug your foot perfectly. When I first bought some my kids were little and my feet felt heavier all the time because I was always carrying one of them. The Keens helped my feet and back feel better. Love my Keens. I am wearing them already. Those are a super cute colour.

  7. I’ve never tried Keens. A few days ago.. I felt confident enough in Mother Nature to seek out my sandals. I got them out feeling the excitement build within me at the thought of being able to just slip those on and go. Not having to wear heavy shoes or heavier yet, boots.

    So, I ended up being as disappointed as I was excited .. I had no issues finding them, but when I put them on they just didn’t have that same ‘ohh yes’ feel.

    Guess it’s time for new sandals..and I hate that. Their the worst thing in the world for me to find. I will have to check these out. Thanks so very much.

  8. I was just looking at these exact shoes in the kid size for my girl. Either the color you’re wearing or the Bougainvillia (a toss up between KEEN and Pediped water shoes). They just look awesome!
    Glad I got to see them in action, thanks for posting!

  9. I love my Keens and cannot wait to take them camping and hiking this summer! You picked a great colour!
