As a customer, I am loyal to KEEN shoes, and I really don’t even bother buying other brands at all. I know what I can expect from them. I know how far their price ranges go, and I am pretty content with KEEN quality. The last thing I bought from KEEN was the KEEN Women’s Venice H2 Sandals. These sandals rock! If you are actually looking for the safest sandals with the best quality, these definitely fall into that category. I would give them a 10/10 rating.
The Venice H2 sandals are perfect for active women, who love adventures, sport activities, and these ladies would never settle for a lazy summer at the beach. These sandals surpass my expectations. If you call yourself an adventurer because you love being in the woods, camping in the desert, or climbing rocks during the summer, then the KEEN Venice H2 Sandals are ideal for you.
I didn’t think twice before buying them. I didn’t care about the color, although there are at least twenty colors to choose from. I noticed that these sandals had a front rubber toe bumper. This was important to me. You may think that sandals should have open toes, but when you are going to spend a summer in the wild, the last thing you want is a broken toe, bruised toe nails or scratches.
It feels incredibly safe having your toes nicely wrapped in a toe bumper. You can relax and walk freely, knowing that you don’t have to be extra cautious. I really like this feature, and I personally think that all sport sandals, especially the ones made for active people, must have toe protection.
When you’re buying sport sandals, make sure that there are enough straps that will keep your feet secure. The foot will get sweaty sooner or later, no matter how many straps there are. It is important for the foot to breathe, and it might even get sweaty, and that’s ok. KEEN has got you covered with an anti-odor AEGIS Microbe Shield treated hydrophobic mesh that should help with the moisture.
I don’t want my sandals to betray me, especially when I need to stay firmly on the ground and not feel as if I’m going to lose one of them. The KEEN Women’s Venice H2 Sandals have a perfect strap combination. The toe bumper continues in a V-strap forefoot that keeps my foot in place, with minimized chances of sliding. The V-Strap forefoot design offered me a superior fit, with added ventilation. It feels good to feel air circulating around the foot, even in cases when your toes are placed in a rubber bumper.
Made of fast-drying polyester, the webbing is powered up with an AEGIS Microbe Shield, treated with SBR lining, that does not irritate skin when wet. The KEEN Women’s Venice H2 Sandals are suitable for water. They won’t shrink nor will you have to wait for them to dry. I tested them while on a crazy rafting adventure this summer, and they were excellent.
Wearing the KEEN Women’s Venice H2 Sandals didn’t give me any painful blisters either. The straps are made of quick drying polyester on the lower part, and the webbing upper is ideal for keeping the straps from dragging or tearing.
There is no velcro on these sandals. A bungee lacing system is used which is much more efficient. With an easy tug on the laces, the laces and the plastic buckle grip together firmly. There is no need to worry whether the sandal will loosen up during walking.
Any sandals should have a comfortable footbed. In this case, the KEEN Women’s Venice H2 Sandals have a metatomical low durometer EVA footbed. Below the footbed, there is a compression-molded EVA midsole. Forget about sandals that will make your underfoot feel like a stone, and might give you arch and tendon pain. A sandal must have acomfortable footbed and a quality midsole, otherwise you won’t be satisfied. Buy the Keen Women’s Venice H2!
These KEEN soles are the best in my collection. The non-marking rubber outsole can be worn anywhere. They are super lightweight, about 10.05 oz. Sometimes, I feel like I am not even wearing shoes. Once again, KEEN did an amazing job.
