Poolside, beachfront, or anywhere in between, the Bali sandal from KEEN will take you there. The cushioned EVA footbed offers support, while the hydrophobic mesh adds a comfortable upper.
I can't say enough good about these shoes. I have had them about a month now. It took me about two times wearing them to get used to how they hit the top of my foot but now I wear them every chance I get. They are easy and comfy to slip on around the house and offer enough support for extended walking. My stroller's break is not sandle friendly. Bali's toe protection saves me from bending over and releasing the break with my hand. A small bonus but something I am thankful for as I load 4 small young children into the car! Love the shoes and was very happy with Back Country's service.
Bali is by far my favorite Keen sandal and that is saying a lot, since I own 3 pairs of them and 5 different others. (that does not include my 2 pairs of shoes and three pairs of boots.) They look great on your feet, not as 'sporty' as others, so they are nice with a skirt.
Today walking in the very hot sand in Costa Rica, the heel portion of my sole fell off. This is the very first time I have had anything happen to a pair of Keens and when I went online to replace them, I find I may have trouble finding a new pair.
Please, Keen, do not discontinue this style!
I bought these in the two colors I've been looking at for several years, but had just never bought. I found this great price at backcourntry.com and had to get them! I've worn them both several times and LOVE them! A co-worker said they looked like flowers on my feet and another said she might get them because she would only need to make sure a couple of toes were polished! : )
I did get the chance to put them in the wash after getting them all muddy and they came out just fine! Love that feature, too!
I'd recommend them to anyone and I may even get more colors in the future.
My wife has wanted these sandals for a while now. She first seen them on one of her friends and asked about them. Her friend said they were the best and favorite pair she owned. She looked them up, but was going to wait to buy them. I decided I would surprise her. I ordered them and when I recieved them she was excited. She tried them on and fell in love. She says they are very comfortable and seem like they will last. I would definately buy them again.
I have had my Balis for over two years. Walking, hiking, biking, going to work, they never quit! Not a thong, so no weird toe rubbing, and they never slid off, not even hiking up mountains. Not even in water. They rock my world. The past two summers I wore Balis, and Balis alone. They made me sad when it came time for winter footwear, even though I am a ski junkie. I think they could possibly take over the traditional flip-flop world!
Purchased this pair to replace a pair from 3 years ago. Still wear the original pair and look almost new. I've worn them daily during the summers and scrubbed them without any loss in quality. I recommend these to anyone who wants a comfy sandal to run around in. The covered toe has helped me not stub my toe on numerous occasions.
I loved this sandal I have 3 pairs at home.The black pair finally died so I ordered a new pair same size.It came and it is 1/2 in shorter than my other three pairs. I am re-ordering in the next size up but now I'm out shipping both ways.Hope this saves someone the same expense.
I give this sandal credit for being comfortable, but the style just looked awkward on me. I ended up buying the Keen Whisper, which I LOVE.
