Gear Review – Keen Clearwater CNX Sandal

As one of the buyers I was keen (no pun intended!) to test out a pair of the Clearwater CNX sandals from Keen for my recent trip to Morocco.

I already have a pair of Newport leather sandals so I knew the fit was good but I wanted to try out the lower profile of the Clearwater and something that was very light low in profile yet robust to travel on mixed terrain and these and these certainly ticked all the boxes.

I also wanted something for use in the water that was going to dry quickly and be ready to use for going out in the evening and I was very impressed with the drying time.

I did take other footwear on the trip but I was so impressed with the comfort and protection of the Clearwater CNX that they were the first choice for everything.

I particularly like the low profile and “bare foot” feel keeping the foot closer to the ground which in my opinion is more natural in a sandal. The AEGIS Microbe Shield (Helps stop them getting smelly!) really works, my feet always test these treatments to the limits!!

So it’s 10 out of 10 from me and they look set to be a good summer partner, they even look fine for the office although we do run a fairly relaxed dress code around here!

Oh, forgot to say the toe protection really works too 🙂
