Most people who write reviews on Kenn footwear focus on their hiking shoes and boots. This summer, however, I have been sporting a new pair of sandals and had to share them with all of you. The Keen Dauntless Strappy II sandals are both stylish and comfortable and survived a long summer of walking.

Keen Style Savvy Sandals

Perfect for sightseeing, these leather upper Keen Sandals are stylish and support your feet. They have a cork midsole and elasticized straps which were great when my feet swelled up in the heat. These elasticized straps gave just the right amount of give, so the shoes still stayed snug on my feet.

These sandals have a beautiful brown leather upper with a Maroon elastic embellishment and were ideal for walking around in shorts or dressing up in the evenings with a pair of leggings or a summer dress.


I noticed that in this shoe I needed a half size smaller than normal. Luckily returns to Keen were very easy and within a few days, I had the right size shoes delivered to my home.

Returns and Exchanges with Keen

The process for returns and exchanges is straightforward.

  • Put the shoes back in the original packaging they were delivered in
  • Go to their website and print off a return/exchange slip
  • Tape as per instructions on the package
  • Take to Canada Post

Then I just had to reorder the sandals with the correct size. Within a few days, they were shipped back to me in the right size. Very simple. I always hesitated to buy shoes for this very reason. I’m never sure if they are going to fit properly. Now that I know how easy it is to rectify the situation I will not hesitate to order online with Keen Again.

It took a few wears before I was able to break in my Dauntless Sandals. Because of the leather upper, it needed a few wears to soften up the leather. However, with the give of the elasticised straps, this was not too difficult a process. I didn’t have blisters when breaking these in, just a few sore and red spots.

Great Sandals for Sightseeing

I travel a lot and this summer I had many city tour type trips. I wore my shoes all day long, and they provided great support for my feet, so they were not as sore as they usually get when I walk around for miles. For me, the real test of a great sightseeing shoe is being able to wear them for 6-8 hours of mostly city street walking. These shoes passed my test!

Perfect for site seeing trips, the Keen Dauntless Strappy II sandals were stylish and provided good support for extended wear. Check out our full review. | Fashion | Travel Gear | Sandals | Shoes | Keen |
