My Review of Keen Whisper Sandals - Women's

I was planning a trip to Costa wise it would be in the 90s with high high humidity and rain. I thought my current hiking shoes wouldn't be such a great idea. So I was looking at these shoes figuring it would be breathable and still able to withstand water and rainforest hiking. On my trip, my backpack never arrived to the airport, but luckily I wore these sandals on the plane and throughout my whole trip in Costa Rica.

They are great for hiking in wet weather. They were great for the natural hot springs and getting completely drenched. They were comfortable for walking around the city. Great all around hiking sandal.

My complaints, sort of vain of me to say, but they're not the prettiest and flattering of shoes. I'm not a big fan of the looks. Also I agree with other people's reviews of how rocks get in them and get annoying. They are not good for the beach or where small pebbles can get caught inside. Also they are pretty slow to dry. I got them completely wet at the hot springs and the next day they were still damp.

But other than the minor complaints I felt really lucky to have those shoes with me on the trip.
