- Measurement Note: Our measurements were taken using a Women’s size 7 US (37.5 EU). Measurements may vary by size. We’ve had more than enough rain here the past couple of days in Colorado. Walking around and braving the wet weather for 5 days definitely called for these shoes.
The Keen Marshall Waterproof Hiking Shoe provides a good, rugged support and great water resistance however the laces are a bit stiff and even harder to tie when wet. The overall shoe is supportive but I feel a bit of uneven support in the arch area. Under my heel, it feels lifted then I feel an empty space under my arch and again good support under the ball of my foot. This noticeable ‘gap’ is felt every time I put the shoes on. Maybe it’s my high-arched foot that makes it feel so off balance inside the shoe. Ignoring that fact, I have tested this shoe in a variety of environments; a 5 mile hike, in a creek, photographing an event and assessing flood damages of a local park. In all situations, the shoes were supportive yet flexible enough to be comfortable. I pushed the waterproof factor to the limits a number of ways, from standing in a creek to splashing through what was once a hiking trail. What I found was that moving slower in these shoes, and keeping the water level below the white overlay near the top laces kept my feet dry. Sudden movements and allowing the water to go near the webbed protection between the tongue and the upper caused my feet to get wet.
Waterproof webbing connects the tongue to the side of the shoe providing water protection up to the mid ankle.
I really enjoy the look of the shoes and they were my go to pair the last five rainy days in Colorado Springs. I might plan on finding a different insert to make the gap under my arch feel better and then they’ll be perfect!
