KEEN men's and women's size chart

Despite being a relatively young brand (established in 2003), Keen has gained a solid reputation not only for the quality and comfort of its footwear but also for its hassle-free sizing.

Do Keens run true-to-size?

Although it’s never guaranteed 100%, Keen footwear does a pretty good job fitting as expected. The brand follows a rather straightforward US sizing scheme in which a full size is 10 mm and half size is 5 mm.

Still, our feet are all unique in their shapes and sizes and they also keep changing over time (even past childhood). That’s why it is essential to have your feet measured at least once a year. It’s much easier than it seems. Follow our 3-step guide to help you.

How Keen boots, shoes, and sandals fit

Keen itself gives a few important recommendations when it comes to the fit of its footwear. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Shoes and boots with the eVent and Keen.Dry membranes tend to have less volume in the toebox, so it may be necessary to get half-size bigger.
  • Expect a snugger fit in trail running shoes and hiking footwear and a more accommodating one in shoes and boots for urban trekking.

Original fit vs. Contoured fit

Although both variants are made to fit snug in the heel and midfoot, the Original fit offers more space in the forefoot as compared to the Contoured fit.

According to the brand, the following Keen models are built with the Original fit:

If you are looking for a more form-fitting feel, consider shoes with the Contoured fit:

Keen footwear for wide feet

Even though the majority of Keen models come in a regular Medium width, some have been released in the Wide version as well.

If you are looking for Keen sandals that accommodate wider feet, choose the ones with bungee laces. This elastic closure is easy to regulate and it helps to cover broader feet. Here are some Keen sandals with bungee laces:
