Anyone had any experience with these?

Would you hike very far in them off the bike?


I'm thinking of using them on my trip this summer, and would appreciate any feed back.

Depends what you mean by hiking...

I wouldn't be doing any slide climbing, a presidential traverse in the whites, if that's what you mean by hiking.  

They would be probably fine for moderate and light open trails though, I would think, assuming you have good ankles.

Doug.. I haven't used the Keen Sandles since I believe there a new cycling sandle but I have used the Shimano for two years now and wouldn't go back to shoes.. I've toured in all kinds of weather and haven't had any Problems.. Nice thing is you can wear them off the bike around town and be comfortable only footware I use to tour, Wouldn't want to do much hikeing in them or any other sandle.. Only Complaint is the new Shimano has three straps and I think the old model was better looking and more comfortable..   PAUL :8|:

I recently purchased a pair of Commuters from REI. As snow and ice are still on the roads, I haven't tried them on a jaunt yet. However, they appear to be of good quality (not inexpensive; sad, though, they aren't manufactured domestically). My Speedplay Frog cleats fit nicely, with no noise while walking. They are narrower than Shimano's, so they fit the pedal and crank with better clearance, based on basement mounts.

Keen bike sandals are highly regarded by the recumbent bloggers:
