Have you been looking for a pair of Keen sandals for your girl? Do you want to provide her with a pair of supportive and durable yet fashionable sandals that will last through the whole summer season?
Keen sandals are the most popular type of sandals for summer camp or to be worn as an everyday sandal to take to the beach or run around during warm weather.
If you have tried these sandals before you should know by now how they are practically indestructible, which guarantees that your girl will outgrow her sandals before she destroys them. This is one of the features that parents love the most!
Another feature that parents love about Keen sandals is the support they provide to their kids’ feet and legs. Just so you know, this is the most supportive type of summer sandal for kids and your girl can wear her Keen sandals for most of the day!
I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for ten years at a premier children’s shoe store specializing in proper fit for over forty years. We specialize in children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fitting as well. It’s important for us to carry top quality shoes that are available in different widths, since that’s the only way we can guarantee to FIT every single child.
For the last three years I have been helping parents find their kids’ shoes online. and in most cases, parents were not aware that a particular shoe style existed in a particular size or width. There is one thing that I want you to remember: It doesn’t matter how narrow or how wide your kids’ feet are, there is at least one particular shoe style out there that will FIT the shape of his or her feet perfectly and I will HELP YOU find it.
Physical therapists always recommend Keen sandals for children who have foot issues such as pronation, flat feet, or rolled ankles since they come with a very substantial sole that provides arch support.
It doesn’t matter how much support a particular shoe style has to provide, if it’s not fitted properly your child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer. This means that if you are not 100% sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size and you don’t have a local shoe store where you can take her to be properly fitted for shoes, please START by reading a post I wrote where I describe the most simply yet effective way to make sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size:
Keep in mind that I always recommend parents to take their children to their local kids’ shoe store, where a shoe fitter can properly measure your kids’ feet and find shoes that fit. The issue that most parents have is that these local shoe stores have been closing down and they don’t have a place to have their kids’ feet properly measured.
In this post, I will describe the best styles of Keen sandals for girls! I will also tell you how those particular shoe styles FIT so you can make sure you provide your child with the correct shoe size.
What Makes Keen Sandals Special? – Comfort, Support, And Durability!
Did you know that Keen sandals come with a footbed that provides an internal support mechanism which is anatomically engineered to provide excellent arch support and cradle the natural contours of the foot?
Some of the features that Keen sandals provide are:
- Adjustable hook-and-loop strap: This will allow your children to put them on and take them off themselves.
- A quick-drying webbing: This feature is great because it will allow the sandals to quickly dry once your child is done playing in the water.
- Traction: Keen sandals provide great traction, so your child can confidently walk around in wet surfaces.
- Machine washable: All Keen sandals styles are machine washable. Use a small amount of detergent, wash on gentle cycle and air dry.
Now that you know how to make sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size and what type of features sandals should provide, let’s take a look at a selection of the best Keen sandals for girls.
The Best Keen Sandals For Girls – The Secret Revealed!
Every time I review a particular shoe style is because I have fitted it before and the Keen sandals I will describe below are the most supportive and better fitting styles. Since I have fitted them before I can tell you exactly how they fit (short, long, wide or narrow).
Please find below a selection of the best Keen sandals for girls:
This selection of Keen sandals fit “true to size” which means that you need to go a half a size to a whole size longer of the size that your child measures in the shoe measuring scale in order to allow for growing room. It’s important to leave growing room for your child to grow into the shoe, specially in a pair of seasonal footwear since you will want your child to wear that particular shoe style for the whole season.
If your girl has extra wide feet you will have to find an alternative to Keens since they won’t be wide enough for her feet. There is a shoe brand named Jambu which makes all type of shoes but they are mostly know for their summer sandals.
They provide similar support and durability as Keen sandals do, but they fit much wider. So, if your girl has extra wide feet, you should take a look at an article I wrote where I describe the best Jambu sandals for girls:
What To Do When Keen Sandals Start Smelling?
Several parents have contacted me asking why Keen sandals develop a smell after their children wear them for a couple of months. Most sandals that your child wears for most of the day will start smelling bad. Unfortunately, there are no special products in the market right now that can help get rid of the smell, so DO NOT waste any money in products thinking that they will help.
However, there is a home-based method you should try that has worked for a lot of families. This home-based method is used with baking soda and vinegar and you will notice how the smell will be greatly reduce or fully eliminated! Please make sure you rub it throughout the sandal, especially in the neoprene part.
This is the most effective way to get rid of the smell. I have spoken to several parents who have tried this home-based method and said it significantly reduced and, in most cases, fully eliminated the smell.
