Yeah, the Keen Yogui sandals look weird. Like a pair of Crocs that got some kind of infection. Swollen, holes in odd places. But, so help me god, I cannot stop wearing these things. They have tremendous arch support, great grippy soles, and plenty of firm cushioning. There isn’t even a close second when it comes to campsite shoes. Hike all day, pull off your steaming trail runners or boots, then slide your dogs into a pair of these bad boys, and you’re in footwear heaven.
They’re also hikeable. Just yesterday I went for what I thought was a neighborhood walk but ended up being a five-mile hike through some forested trails a few blocks away. I didn’t even realize I was wearing slip-on sandals until I was halfway through the hike negotiating a slippery rock garden. No problemo.
You can get them in a ton of colors, I have two pairs, one black and one a since discontinued sorta rainbow vibe. They’re THAT good.
