Women's Kea™ Sandal
I ordered this particular shoe because I have had surgery on both of my feet. I need to wear shoes that are comfortable which this shoe is. However most important is that I need a shoe that keeps my big toe seperated from my other toes to prevent the toes from curving again. This will aid in preventing me from further surgery and recurrence of bunions.This shoe is perfect for my needs.

I have a problem getting sandals/shoes that fit due to arthritis, a high arch, very narrow feet and a fused and painful large toe joint. I recently bought a pair of Kea Sandals and love them They are comfortable and from the first I could wear them without any pain.

Perfect shoe for me.
This sandal is perfect for me because I wear size 9, and my feet are unusually narrow. I truly cannot find a narrow sandal in my size. My closed shoe size is actually 10, but a size 9 in this sandal is perfect.
I worry that this sandal may be discontinued because it's the only one I can find that fits so perfectly and looks good as well.
I love it......

I am very disappointed in this product. I wore these shoes for the first time today and they cut into the top part of my foot. The elastic is too tight and I don't have a particularly high arch. They were listed as "8B" in size-this is definitely not true to size. Upon closer inspection I realized the stitching is uneven on one of the sandals. I would not recommend this sandal.

Best Designed Sandals
The best sandal design of all time, so comfy that you can sleep wearing them. Mine have lasted years through dog walking, hiking, water, working on my property, evening outings, resort travels, biking......I can even run in them! I dislike constrictive clothing and accessories especially thong style sandals and this wraps around the big toe in sheer comfort. This is the ONLY summer footwear that I will ever wear! I think I may replace heels with them!

best casual sandal ever
I began buying Columbia Kea's a few years ago and have worn them everywhere in total comfort. I have very narrow feet, and these sandals fit the best of any I've tried; they stay on and they have great cushioned soles. I have duplicate pairs of colors for home and work: black, dark brown, stone, white, khaki green. What I'd like is for more new colors to be offered: four or five summers ago there was a bright green and even a cheerful shade of purple (that my sister bought). I'd really like to buy a nice shade of true navy blue that would go well with denim capris.

Love this shoe
I love this shoe. Is looks nicer than a flip-flop, but versatile to wear with shorts, skirt, casual dress or cotton pants. Sturdy support, long lasting material, good traction. I can wear it to the beach and to work.

Kea Sandal (Bark) - Comfortable, Excellent Fit
What a great, comfortable sandal. Great fit! Have trouble buying shoes and especially sandals. I was in a popular shoe store in Bermuda having trouble finding a sandal that my foot won't slip out off (haven't had much luck this summer with sandals). A customer in the same shoe store has the same problem (straps are always to loose)and was wearing the Kea sandal and suggested that I go online and order the Kea sandal which I did (and she said it would be comfortable which it is). Thank you! Thank you!

Not your typical flip flop
I really like this shoe. It is easy on and off, casual and with the wrap around the big toe its so much more comfortable than a flip=flop.

Kea vs. Nevis Thong
For the last 5 years, I have been searching stores for a white Nevis Thong. About 3 weeks ago, I found the Kea on line. This was the first time I purchased shoes on line. The Kea was almost as comfortable as the Nevis right out of the box. This are the perfect versatile comfortable white sandal option I have found over the last several years.
