Size and fit

The Keen Howser II can be enjoyed by both sexes. There are men’s and women’s versions available for this silhouette. Women’s sizes range from 5 to 11 while the men’s version is offered in sizes ranging from 7 to 15. Hal sizes are available for both. The shoes do not use laces but instead utilize an elastic gore panel for a snug fit. The measurement runs small by a half size, so customers need to remember to size up.

KEEN Howser II History

The Keen company was established by Martin Keen in 2003 in Alameda, California. Born out of an idea of making a toe-protecting sandal, the Keen company has grown quickly into a giant footwear and accessories business with sales hitting $140 million in just six years after first opening its doors.

The brand has since delved into manufacturing, not just sandals, but work cleats and lifestyle shoes too. The Howser II comes from their lifestyle collection. It is an updated version of the original Howser which, according to the company description, provides “sleeping-bag-like warmth to the feet.” The design has remained mostly the same as well as the specifications except for the Cleansport NXT tech feature that has been added to the footbed for natural odor control.

Additional Info

  • The Keen Howser II are slip-ons with non-marking rubber outsoles, gored side panels, and removable footbeds.
