Keen Sandals for Girls – The Most Supportive and Durable Summer Sandal for Your Girl!

keen-sandals-for-girls

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 during the summer?

Keen sandals are extremely well-made, supportive, durable, and provide great traction. They are truly an all terrain sandal that allows kids to run around and play comfortably for the whole summer season.

Another awesome feature that parents love about Keen sandals is the excellent 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, not all Keen sandal styles provide the same amount of support, and depending on your girl’s foot shape, there are certain styles that fit better than others.

For example, if your girl happens to have narrow feet, there is only one particular Keen sandal that can fit the shape of her feet. If your girl happens to have wide feet, there is also only one style capable of fitting the shape of her feet.

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. Over the years I got familiar with the best summer sandals for kids.

Most pediatricians and physical therapists always recommend Keen sandals for children who have foot issues such as overpronation, flat feet, rolled ankles , low muscle tone. Keen sandals provide a very substantial outsole that minimizes the impact that kids’ feet take every time they come in contact with the ground. They are also the most recommend sandals for children who wear orthotics and have foot issues.

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 provide.

The Best Keen Sandals for Girls – The 5 Most Important Features!

These are the 5 most important features that the Keen sandals I recommend provide:

✅ Arch and Heel Support: Keen sandals come with a substantial outsole that minimizes the impact that 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 feature allows children to easy put the sandals on and take them off themselves.

✅ Quick-drying webbing: This feature allows 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 only write reviews of shoes 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.

In order to allow for growing room, I highly recommend that parents order these sandals a half a size larger than the size their children’s feet measure. This translates to 0.3 inches or 0.7 centimeters of space between your child’s longest toe and the end of the shoes.

Let’s take a look at a couple of different scenarios that will help you identify which sandal 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?

Please keep in mind that these sandals can fit the shape of a girl with narrow, medium, or wide feet, but they won’t fit the shape a girl with extra wide feet. If your girl has extra wide feet, please refer to the article below:

In order to order the correct sandal size online, you must know your girls exact foot size. Which leads me to this next question: Are you 100% sure of your girl’s foot size?

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 I created that describes the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home:

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 many families. This home-based method is used with baking soda and vinegar, and you will notice how the smell will be greatly reduced 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.

The Keen sandals I recommended are all machine washable so you can also just throw them in the machine as often as you need to.
