I have never been one to wear sandals unless I was by the water, but when I was sent a pair of KEEN’s Rialto sandals this summer, I was wearing them everywhere. These sandal are American made in Oregon, with materials from around the world, as the KEEN website states.

In all my KEEN shoes, one issue I’ve never had is odor. This is because KEEN uses Cleansport NXT for natural odor control. When odor causing bacteria hits the natural material of the shoe, microbes bond to the surface of the natural material to eliminate the odor causing bacteria.

The hydrophobic mesh lining helps in draining all water from the sandal if you step into water. If you’re worried the leather is going to get ruined, fear not. The upper leather is water resistant and I can attest to this for sure. I have worn the sandals while kayaking and generally launch at slippery boat launches, but the solid rubber, high-traction sole kept me from slipping. The molded PU foam footbed is removable for quick drying or cleaning, and the microfiber footbed also adds to the comfort of the shoe. One of the biggest factors in the comfort I experienced was the metatarsal ridge. It gives a natural feel for your feet from below. Last but not least, the fit lace capture system, which allows you to snug up your sandals, set, and forget about them.

After receiving the Rialto sandals, I put them on and immediately felt the comfort in the sole. I found myself wearing them all day with no discomfort in my feet or legs at all. In fact, I’ve been wearing them all day at work and my feet feel great at the end of the day. One time I accidently went kayaking in them and got them wet. After a quick day in the sun, the water resistant leather was dry and they were ready to go again. In the past, I only wore sandals when kayaking or at the beach, but with the Rialto’s, I am able to comfortably wear them all day, and my feet stay dry and odor free.
