REVIEW: Keen WK400 Walking Shoes

Alright, folks, gather round for a chat about a pair of kicks that have been stepping up our walking game – the Keen WK400 Walking Shoes. 

First off, let's talk comfort. Slip our feet into these bad boys, and it's like sinking into a cloud. The cushioning is just right – not too squishy, not too firm. It's like they were custom-made for our feet. And the best part? No blisters! We've had our fair share of shoes that rub us the wrong way, but these beauties have yet to give us any grief.

Now, let's get down to business with the grip. We've tested these shoes on all sorts of terrain – from slick city streets to muddy woodland paths – and they've never let us down. The tread pattern is spot on, providing just the right amount of traction without feeling like we're wearing climbing boots. Whether we're dodging puddles or navigating gravelly trails, these shoes have got our back (or should we say, our feet).

Durability-wise, we've gotta give props to Keen. We've been putting these shoes through their paces for a few months now, and they still look as good as new. The stitching is solid, the materials are top-notch, and there's been no sign of wear and tear. It's like they're indestructible – which is a relief because we tend to be a bit rough on our footwear.

Now, let's talk style. Sure, they might not be the flashiest shoes on the block, but they've got a certain rugged charm that we dig. The neutral colour scheme means they go with just about anything, whether we're rocking jeans and a t-shirt or dressing up for a casual night out. Plus, they've got that classic Keen look that says, "We're ready for adventure."

Comfort-wise, these shoes are on another level. The midsole cushioning provides just the right amount of support, while the breathable mesh upper keeps our feet cool and dry – even on the hottest days. And don't even get us started on the roomy toe box. We've got wide feet, so finding shoes that don't pinch or squeeze is a godsend. With these beauties, we've got plenty of wiggle room to spare.

In terms of fit, we'd say they're true to size. We usually wear a UK size11, and the size 11 Keen WK400s fit us like a glove. They're snug in all the right places without feeling too tight or too loose. Plus, the lacing system is easy to adjust, so we can dial in the perfect fit every time.

Overall, we have to say we're impressed with the Keen WK400 Walking Shoes. They've quickly become our go-to footwear for all our outdoor adventures, from brisk morning walks to weekend hikes. They're comfortable, durable, and stylish – what more could we ask for in a pair of shoes? If you're in the market for a new pair of kicks, do yourself a favour and give these beauties a try. Trust us, your feet will thank you.
