I read about these on another post and was wondering if anyone that has worn the actual Keens has tried the knockoff version that Payless now has.

They have them for Women in a beige (http://www.payless.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?&TLC=Womens&SLC=WomensCasuals&BLC=WomensCasualsComfort&Width=Regular&DescriptiveColor=Tan&ItemCode=54044&LotNumber=047273&Type=Adult&cm_id=coloritemgraphic) and a burgandy (http://www.payless.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?&TLC=Womens&SLC=WomensCasuals&BLC=WomensCasualsComfort&Width=Regular&DescriptiveColor=Red/Black&ItemCode=54044&LotNumber=046550&Type=Adult&cm_id=coloritemgraphic)

I currently have a pair of Keen Venice and :love: them, but at $90 bucks a pair it is kind of hard to justify multiple pairs in different colors. The Payless version is less than $30 per pair. :Pinkbounc

Not the Payless versions but my daughter bought Sketchers that look just like Keens. She thought they were wonderful at first but then got horrible blisters on the backs of her heels where the sole curves up just a little.
It has taken me a lifetime of being a cheapskate to finally admit that most often you truly get what you pay for. ;)

I just got them the other day (burgundy). Theyre great! Very comfortable. Slightly more so than Keens Ive tried on. I havent walked far/alot so far, but around the house they were terrific. And only $25!! Im also sold on Payless Airwalk/aircrocs, more so than the real deal--cushier.

I just bought my husband the Target knockoff and he loves them. He has worn them in the pool and he wears them almost everyday. They were around $20.

I tried on the Sketchers version (even before finding the keens) and they didn't fit right. One size was just a little to small and the next size was a little bit to big. :sad2:

:cool1: Yes! exactly what I was waiting to hear. I definetly need to check these out. I just wish they were still having the BOGO sale. :teeth:

Does Target have these in women sizes? I don't remember seeing any the last time I was in. :confused3

I don't think I saw women's at Target, but I wasn't lookin' really closely. I bought them for Father's Day.

Then it wasn't just me! I bought those Skechers last summer ("Cascades" I believe) and they gave me awful burning blisters. I always meant to write to Skechers and complain but never got around to it. I wore them once and never again!
