  Keen done me wrong
  Posted by: mr_canoehead on Oct-07-12 8:02 PM (EST)
 

I bought a pair of those sandals at a year-end clearance sale, and used them the next year. In very short order they seemed to disolve - the stitching came out of the upper and the sole de-laminated. I contacted Keen and they told me too bad, as I didn't have my receipt.

I like the design, but since this experience (and I've talked to several who also had durability issues), I'll stick with old sneakers.

As for traction on wet rock - if it is covered with vegetation/algae, it will be slippery regardless. I like a sneaker or something like a bean boot just so I can feel the shape of the rock underfoot.
