Have you been looking for a pair of Keen sandals for your girl? Did you know that Keen sandals are the most popular type of sandals for kids to wear to summer camp or for wearing them through the entire summer season?
Keen sandals are extremely well-made, supportive, durable, and provide great traction. They are truly an all terrain sandal that will allow your child to run around and play comfortably for the whole summer season. They are also the most recommend sandals for children who wear orthotics and have foot issues.
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 wears them out. This is one of the features that parents love the most.
Another awesome feature that parents love about Keen sandals is the support that they provide to their kids’ feet and legs. Just so you know, this is the most supportive type of summer sandal for children. However there are certain styles that will provide more support to your child’s feet and legs, but the good news is that I will help you find them
I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now, and I know everything that relates to children’s shoes and the way they fit. This is a specialized shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. We carry some of the most supportive children’s shoes and orthotics, and I am familiar with which shoe brands and which shoe styles are better than others.
For the last 3 years I have been helping parents find the perfect pair of shoes for their kids online. There is one thing that I want you to remember: It doesn’t matter how narrow or wide your kids’ feet are, there is always at least one particular shoe style out there that will fit the shape of your child’s feet perfectly, and I will help you find it.
Physical therapists always recommend Keen sandals for children who have foot issues such as overpronation, flat feet, rolled ankles , low muscle ton (just to name a few), since Keen sandals come with a very substantial sole that will minimize the impact that your kids’ feet take every time they come in contact with the ground.
If your child needs to wear orthotics with her shoes, then Keen sandals are what they are suppose to wear during the summer.
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?
I will provide you with a selection of the best Keen sandals for girls shortly, but first I want to show you what features these sandals will provide for your child and how to make sure you figure out your child’s foot size from home.
The Best Keen Sandals for Girls – The 5 Most Important Features!
These are the 5 most important features that the Keen sandals I will describe below will provide to your girls’ feet:
- Arch and Heel Support: Keen sandals come with a substantial sole that will minimize the impact that your kids’ feet and legs take every time they come in contact with the ground.
- Excellent Traction: Keen sandals provide great traction, which means that your child will be able to walk on wet and slippery surfaces.
- Adjustable hook-and-loop strap: This will allow your children to easy put the sandals 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.
- Machine washable: All Keen sandals styles are machine washable. Use a small amount of detergent, wash on gentle cycle and air dry.
I am always explaining to parents how it doesn’t matter how many features a particular shoe styles provides, if the shoes are not fitted properly, your child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer.
I always recommend parents to take their children to their local children’s shoe store that they trust, the issue is that most stores have been closing down and parents need to end up buying their kids’ shoes online. There is nothing wrong with this, but you must know your child’s exact foot size in order to know what size to order.
I created a map that showcases the best fitting children’s shoe stores by state, so I suggest you start by taking a look at that map:
If after looking at that map you still can’t seem to identify a shoe store in your area, then proceed to taking a look at an article along with a video I created that describes the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home:
Now that you know how to make sure your child is wearing the correct shoe size and what type of features these sandals will provide to your girl’s feet, let’s take a look at a selection of the best Keen sandals for girls.
The Best Keen Sandals for Girls ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Please keep in mind that I only write reviews of shoe styles that I have fitted before, otherwise I wouldn’t know how well-made they are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.
Here you can find a selection of the best Keen sandals for girls. The first two styles from the left (Moxie) will fit a child with narrow or medium feet, and the last two styles (Newport) will fit a child with medium or wide feet.
All of these 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 standard foot measuring scale (Brannock Device), in order to allow for growing room. It’s important to allow for the proper amount of growing room (3/8 of an inch) for your child to grow into the sandals.
Please keep in mind that these sandals will fit the shape of a child with narrow, medium, or wide feet, but they won’t fi the shape a girl with extra wide feet. 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 are two shoe brands that might work named Jambu and Merrell.
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 sandals for kids with extra wide feet. Please go to the link below:
Are Your Keen Sandals Starting to Smell? – Let’s Get Rid of the Smell!
Several parents have contacted me asking why Keen sandals develop such a bad 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 don’t waste any money in products thinking that they will help.
However, there is a home-based method that 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.
