How Do Kids’ Keen Sandals Fit? – Let’s Compare the 5 Most Popular Styles!

keen-sandals-for-kids

Keen sandals are hands-down the most popular sandals for children to wear during the summer season. Parents love how versatile these sandals are, since children can wear them to the beach, summer camp, going hiking, riding their bicycles, and walking for long periods of time as the sandals offer excellent support.

Keen sandals are the most versatile types of sandals. They are mostly known for the good support and comfort that they offer to children’s feet, and also for being practically indestructible.

One of the most common mistakes that I see parents make is to generalize and assume that all Keen sandals fit the same way. There are several different kids Keen sandals styles, and they all fit a little different.

All Keen sandals provide an internal support mechanism that cushions the child’s feet and significantly reduces the impact that the feet and legs take when they come in contact with the ground. However, if the sandals are not fitted properly, your child won’t get any of the benefits that the sandals have to offer. What’s even worse, you might end up creating all sort of foot issues to your child’s feet such as blisters, calluses, and corns.

In order to prevent this from happening I will show you how the 5 most popular Keen sandals styles fit.

Just so you know, sandals can fit short, long, narrow, or wide, and depending on how they fit, you will have to adjust the final size that you get for your child. If your child has narrow or wide feet, there are certain Keen sandal styles that will accommodate the shape of their feet better.

As a standard rule, if you are fitting your kids’ Keen sandals at the beginning of the summer, you should leave 0.3 inches or 0.7 centimeters of space between your child’s longest toe and the end of the sandals in order to allow for growing room. However, depending on how that particular Keen sandal style fits, you might need to allow for more or less growing room.

For example, if that particular Keen sandal style that you are getting for your child fits:

  • Short: you will need to provide your child with a whole size longer instead of a half a size longer.
  • Long: you will need to provide your child with the same size that he/she measured at the foot measuring scale.
  • True to Size: you will have to provide your child with a half a size longer.

Do Keen Sandals Fit? – Let’s Find Out!

Keen sandals are not available in half sizes; they are available in whole sizes only. This factor plays a key role in which size you will end up ordering for your child.

Several parents seem to have one question in common: How do kids’ Keen sandals fit?

I want you to know that I know exactly how each Keen sandal style fits from actually having fitted them before.

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now.  This experience has afforded me many insights into children’s shoes and the way they fit.  Our store specializes in shoes for children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. From my experience fitting thousands of kids, I have become familiar with the best shoe brands for children and the best styles among those brands.

Without further do, let’s take a look at how each Keen sandal style fits. Disclosure: Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases.

Keen Newport 

This style fits children with medium or wide feet, and it is capable of accommodating the shape of your child’s high instep. This style won’t fit children with narrow feet.

The Keen Newport fits true to size, so let’s take a look at a couple of different scenarios that will help you identify which Newport size to order for your child.

  • If your child measures a foot size 5, you will order the size 6 and your child will still get the correct amount of growing room.
  • If your child measures a foot size 5 ½, you will order the size 6 and your child will get the correct amount of growing room.

The Keen Newport is one of the most popular Keen styles and my go-to style for children who require extra support from their sandals. This style comes with a substantial sole that helps cushion and protect your kids’ feet. Below you can find the Keen Newport style for boys and girls:

Keen Seacamp 

This style fits children with narrow or medium feet.  This style won’t fit children with wide feet.

The Keen Seacamp fits true to size, so let’s take a look at a couple of different scenarios that will help you identify which Seacamp size to order for your child.

  • If your child measures a foot size 5, you will order the size 6 and your child will still get the correct amount of growing room.
  • If your child measures a foot size 5 ½, you will order the size 6 and your child will get the correct amount of growing room.

Makes sense?

The Keen Seacamp is very similar to the Keen Newport, but it doesn’t provide the same amount of support. It is the perfect choice for children who don’t have any foot conditions but will be walking long distances during summer time.

Keen Moxie 

This style fits children with narrow or medium feet only. This style won’t fit children with wide feet.

The Keen Moxie fits short, so let’s take a look at a couple of different scenarios that will help you identify which Moxie size to order for your child.

If your child measures a foot size 5, you will order the size 6 in order for your child to get the correct amount of growing room.

If your child measures a foot size 5 ½, you will order the size 7 and your child will get the correct amount of growing room.

Makes sense?

The Keen Moxie is one of the most fashionable Keen styles and my go-to one for children with narrow feet. This style is very lightweight and flexible, and while it doesn’t offer the same amount of support as the Newport, it still offers a good amount of support for your child to wear the sandals for most of the day.

Keen  Whisper

If your child measures a foot size 5, you will order the size 6 in order for your child to get the correct amount of growing room.

If your child measures a foot size 5 ½, you will also order the size 6 and your child will get the correct amount of growing room.

Makes sense?

The Keen Whisper is one of the most popular Keen styles among older girls.  This is also one of the most popular styles for women who are a foot size 8 or below and can fit in the kids’ Keen version of the sandals. This style is only available for girls.

The Keen Uneek is one of the newest Keen styles and one of the kids’ top choices in terms of comfort and style.

These are the 5 most popular Keen styles that I have fitted before, but if there is a particular Keen sandal style that you are unsure of how it fits please do not hesitate to contact me and I will tell you exactly how it fits.

We all know how children like to go barefoot in the sand, but days at the beach often involve walking around boardwalks and being active. Providing your child with the correct amount of support during the summer time will keep your child’s feet and legs healthy.

Keen sandals have been the most popular type of sandals for the last 10 years. There is no other sandal brand that offers the support and comfort that these sandals provide, and parents love how they are practically indestructible. Your child will outgrow these sandals before anything happens to them.
