my amazing Keen shoes.


First of all, I am so ridiculously excited about Hawaii. :) :)

Well, actually I could be in Hawaii right now for all you know. I'm not going to tell exactly when we'll be there. As I've said before, be cool about internet safety, y'all. 

I mean I guess if I comment on your blog or something, then I'm probably not in Hawaii. But let's not spill the beans if I do that. I have faith that the people I follow and who follow me are not creepers...it's those other world wide web weirdos that I worry about. (That was some nice alliteration right there.)

Anyway, you'll continue to see blog posts from me while we're in Hawaii, whenever that is, and then when we get back I'll be like okay we're back. And show you some awesome pictures.

My husband is a sweet man who wants me to be an ultimate adventurer in Hawaii so he got me these beauties:


You can find these Keen Whisper shoes here.

Okay, maybe they aren't that beautiful to you, but compared to other shoes in this category they are CUTE. But I don't love them for cuteness.

These shoes are for all kinds of outdoor activities. They're even waterproof. So they're perfect for the kind of exploring we're going to be doing, and for future events like camp and such. But I don't even love them for their versatility.

I love them because they FIT MY FOOT! Perfectly! See that drawstring? You can make the entire shoe tighter so it is oh so snug and wonderful feeling. It's not until I put on a shoe that actually fits my foot that I realize how most shoes I own don't actually fit my foot. If you haven't heard about my shoe woes before, I have no arch whatsoever, a completely flat foot, and the most narrow foot/heel you will ever meet. (So do others on my dad's side of the family!) It is extremely difficult to fit. When I find a shoe that really does fit, it calls for celebration. 

So I am celebrating this shoe. I know it's meant for extreme activities...but if you see me wearing them at the store or something don't judge. I give you permission to tell me I've gone too far if I wear them for a formal event. But I just don't want to take them off.

When the guy at REI told us that Keen made this version of the shoe to be especially narrow, I wanted to hug him, and go find the person at Keen who made that decision and hug him/her too.

I also like them because on their website it says "Sox" instead of "Socks" which is exactly what I'd do if I had a clothing website. But that's irrelevant. 

What kinds of activities will y'all be doing in Hawaii that require such extreme footwear? you may ask. You will just have to wait and see from pictures. :)

  1. I am so jealous! I love them. I think they are very cute and you should wear them out. I've been wanting a pair of Merrells for some time now so hopefully Christmas :)

  2. Ash - I forgot to mention that they were more than HALF off the original price! It was such a great deal. REI baby.

  4. Yes totally agree with you. they make your feet so comfortable, and yes totally adjustable string that's what makes it more pretty.
