Keen Venice Sandals Rating:
My 3 year old could not love these sandals more. Purchased in the spring of '06 and worn all through the spring, summer and early fall, the child could not have worn them anymore. This is the only shoe the child ever wanted to wear and now that its winter still wants to wear them.
As a parent, I appreciate the sandals solid construction. Despite a ton of wear the sandals look like new. The soles and foot bed look like they could go another 5 years.
Other things that are nice is that a 3 year old was easily able to learn how to put these sandals on and take them off. The cinch chord allows the sandal to fit snugly on small feet. The rubber toe is particularly good at helping to protect from stubbing a toe. Also the sandal is waterproof which makes them great for beaches, lakes...etc.
There are two downsides to the sandal. The protective toe is great, but the downside is that if a pebble gets in the sandal is that it does not have an easy exit by the toes. Lastly at an MSRP of ~$50, this product should be outstanding. One thing that takes the sting out of the price for me is that the sandal will be handed down to a younger sibling and this product will certainly last.
