So I should probably start off by saying that I am biased. I love Keen shoes. I have loved them since the moment I saw them on my cousin’s feet about 15 years ago and promptly got a pair for myself. I mean, comfort and fashion? That is what I am talking about! It is no surprise that I have been getting Keen shoes for kids whenever possible as my kids have grown up. Comfortable shoes that protect their feet are just a no-brainer. Sometimes I buy full price and sometimes I score a deal on Zulily, (here’s my affiliate link). I was provided with shoes in order to facilitate this Keen UNEEK shoes review. All opinions expressed are my own.
UNEEK Shoes For Kids Are Perfect Summer Adventure Shoes
If you have ever owned a pair of Keen sandals, you can back me up here. Keen shoes for kids and for adults are completely durable. They take a licking and keep on ticking. Which if you have any kids of your own, you know that your kids will test their shoes out fully. Kids love to play, run, jump, skip, climb, go in creeks, and do crazy things you would never think of doing so they are perfect for testing shoes out. And summer adventures call for extra durability because they are out of the classroom running around and doing things for that many more hours in a day!
We are planning a backpacking trip around Europe to see my husband’s family and site see a bit so I these UNEEK Keen shoes for kids are perfect for the trip. My kids have been testing them out for a few weeks now and they are passing the test. I had never tried their new UNEEK shoes for kids or adults so I was hoping that they were just as comfortable as the sandals and they are. The UNEEK interlocking cords form to the feet for a just right fit that moves with you.
My daughter is in middle school this year and she has suddenly gotten picky about fashion. She used to wear whatever I picked for her but now there are some not so subtle rejections. She opened up the box and she said, “Cool.” Not a bad start. The next day she wanted to wear them to school. “Really?” I asked calmly but inside I was beside myself with excitement about her liking my selection. Then when she came home, I asked, “How were they?” and she said, “They are my new favorite shoes.” I was not sure I had heard her correctly so I said, “What?” And weeks later, they are still her favorites. She thinks they look cool and she likes how comfortable they are. That makes me happy!
My son is 9 and he likes the UNEEK shoes for kids too. He is not all that into fashion yet. However, if he doesn’t like something for whatever reason, he just won’t wear it.
He has started wearing them more and more as it has been warming up. He wears them to school and for playdates and hikes at the park. I am so happy to have made them both happy.
I am glad to see they have both broken the UNEEK shoes for kids in a bit. They are going to be the shoe of choice for each of our kids when we go camping or travel abroad. I love that they look nice enough to dress up or down and they keep my kids ready for any summer adventures.

Hi! Thank you for the review! By any chance did one of your children get wet while wearing the sneakers? If so do they dry quickly? Thank you!
Yes. They do get their UNEEKs wet and yes they do dry pretty quickly and since they aren’t enclosed they don’t feel icky. Also the footbed is rubber so it dries quickly or wipes dry.
