Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third year purchase The most comfortable sandal ever! This is my third pair in five years, they don't wear out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Sandal This is my first pair of Columbia sandals. Ordered online and hoped for the best. Loved the color, was true to picture. I wear 9/ 1/2 so ordered a 9 which is usually what I do with sandals because a 10 is always too wide. A bit short but wearable. Nice support which I need due to a bad back. Only issue is that they are too wide, my right foot tends to lean inward, but will work for my needs. Not an all day shoe though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable! The most comfortable flip flop I have ever bought! Lightweight and no blisters...ever! I will definitely be investing in more colours. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite sandles I bought the black pair in 2005 and had been wearing them till Feb 2017, they were so comfy, convenient and durable. Unfortunately they were stolen with my luggage in Toronto Airport when I flew back to Ottawa from Asia at the end of Feb. I like them so much that I have to have them so I bought them again and this time, I bought two pairs, black and sand. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Expensive for what they are... Given the price, I expected a higher quality product. They look much better in the photograph. No arch support. Fancy grocery store flip flops. Do not recommend them unless the price drops significantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Fit and Function, lovely color choices, too! I have a long narrow foot with a high arch and low instep. Most sandals fit too loose and I have a huge gap across the top of my foot. These fit great, look great and are so comfortable! I don't have to worry about them falling off my feet, nor do I have to curl my toes to hold them on. I love these sandals and I hope Columbia never stops making them, because I will have nowhere else to turn! Thanks for a fantastic fitting, comfortable, and attractive shoe. (I wear a 9½ to 10, but size 9 fits perfectly in length in this sandal.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travel sandals Bought for backpack travel, shared public showers and casual use. Very comfortable. Perfect sizing, even for a wider foot. Salmon pink is attractive and not easy to misplace or forget while traveling. I like the toe sleeve and gripping tread for safety in wet conditions. Terrific walking sandal too. Footbed scrubs clean easily with soap. Pricey, but totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third pair and will buy it again. My first pair was great but I wore them to the ground. Bought a pair just like them and made my first pair my boat shoes. They stay on my feet in the water and do not slip on the boat floor. The third pair I bought are a different color and I wear them to work. Standing and walking on a retail floor, my feet still feel fine. Wish they were a little less expensive, but I don't like my feet to hurt so I'll spend the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sandal! These sandals hug your feet! I had a pair like these a few years ago and they were the most comfortable flip-flop style sandals I' think I've even owned. I figured by now they had been discontinued, but was so glad to find this newer version was available! Happy happy feet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these sandals!! I just purchased two more pairs. They are comfortable and throw them in the washing machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little narrow for a wide foot I wear 8W in almost all shoes and have bunions and fairly flat feet. I bought these in an 8 tan, and they were a perfect fit in length and width. I anticipated that the cut-out would rub my bunion, but it did not. I decided to try an 8 black, but after two tries had to send them back. The black did rub the side of my foot, and I did not think they would stretch enough. Other reviewers suggested a size larger for wide feet, but I think a 9 would have been too long. I still recommend these sandals with a caution about width.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kea Vent Best casual walking shoe out there. Very comfortable and conforms to your foot with excellent arch support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from long lasting, comfortable This is my second pair of this style - I love my first pair so much I wanted to get another. I am still wearing the first pair after at least 5 or 6 years of use - don't remember exactly how many years ago I bought them but they still have sturdy soles and provide enough support to be a good choice for all day wear in dry and wet terrain. When traveling, I always make sure these are in my bag. This shoe is comfortable even for feet like mine that measure a C/D width.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable fit This shoe is very comfortable. It does fit slightly small so it is a little snug but not uncomfortably so. I hope Columbia continues to carry this shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is comfortable and we'll worth the money Bought my first sandal 6 years ago, absolutely loved it. Bought a different color the next year. These sandals have been my main shoe every summer. This year I finally have to replace the ones I bought 6 years ago. They hold up so well, I have worn these all over, including hiking trails in Colorado, Missouri and Kansas. So comfortable as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sandal I purchased a pair almost like this a number of years back. Have almost wore them out and when I found these on website ordered them and love them. Thinking about purchasing a brown pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I bought a black pair of these 4 years ago. I have worn them to death. Just had to replace them. As long as you make these - I will keep coming back. They have the support I need with the comfort I love. Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful style and and comfortable I Loved these but really can't give a proper review. I had to return them because they were to big. I wear a 8 in sneakers but I wear a 7 in this type footwear. Does not run small! I ordered 2 pair, the Sky Blue and Tan. I hated that I could not just exchange them! And had to wait on a refund to re order so I ordered form another company. Also I had to call, but at least they did pay for the return. I just had a hard time waiting on UPS because they would not fit in the drop box.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I didn't like this particular shoe I really didn't like this shoe. After owning the Kea (now named the Lima) I was disappointed with this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer sandal Very comfy and cool for summer. Purchased size 12 in the brown and purple. I will be back for more colors. Love these, because they are easy to keep on my feet while being the closest thing I can come to a flip flop without fighting to keep them on. Love!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sandal I love this sandal. With the toe loop it's much easier to keep on your feet. This sandal runs very small. If you need the width order up a couple of sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More colors! I have one in almost every color! More cushioning in footbed, as compared to the outlet ones. Love

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these sandals! I have arthritis so good shoes are very important. These sandals are awesome. They give me just the right amount of support and I can walk around in them all day. I hope Columbia will continue to make them for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried n true I've bought these flip flops for 5 years now. I get 2 pairs a year and wear them year round (I can't stand hot feet). They have an arch and are comfortable to walk distances in. The best I've ever worn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish Im always wearing cheap flip flops, health critics claims our feet are supposed to have quality plus durable function all the time. So i decided to give Columbia a try. If u have wide feet as i do go up a size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best summer sandal ever! I have these in a baby pink colour from years ago, and they're looking worn, not so shiny new anymore but nothing I find locally even comes close to these. After hunting for a year in sports shops and shoe stores, I checked to see if they were on your site. Lo and behold, there they were, same sandal, new colours, of which I ordered the Glory/Purple and I cannot wait for them to arrive. I'll be ordering another pair by summer to have another colour, likely the fossil/fawn combo for neutrality, since these stay on my nerve damaged, reflex missing foot when others fall off. Best shoe ever! Stability of a sneaker, comfort of a sandal, staple to my wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sandal you can wear all day I bought 3 pair of these for my mother and I have four pair myself. These sandals feel like a body glove on your foot. I could walk all day in these. We really love them. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Shoe! The Kea Vent is an absolutely wonderful shoe! It fits my foot perfectly, and it is comfortable as well as stylish. I can wear them in any situation, and I like the attention to detail I see and feel when I wear them. I would have this as my only shoe and in all colors!! but...they are a bit spendy. Columbia also used to make this shoe in a lovely coral color (when it went on sale, I immediately purchased a pair), and that pair and my black pair are my "go to" sandals. I highly recommend this shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skinny feet I have narrow feet & out of the 4 pair I ordered I only needed to return the fawn. They were too big in the toe. I do wear a size 10 so it seems the bigger the foot the wider they make the shoe(who knows why)
Date published: 2015-07-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from had to buy more I have never had sandals that go between or around my big toe that I have found comfortable until these. I had a brown pair and loved them so much I got them in 2 more colors. I wear a size 4 1/2 shoe and got the 5's and they fit me perfectly. The brown pair have held up very well. I have worn them in wet grass, working on my feet for 8 hours and just around town and they are still pretty perfect looking. I would recommend going up half a size but besides that these are GREAT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs small I purchased these shoes for our oldest daughter who wears a girls size 2-3 in her "regular" shoes. We originally ordered a size 5 in the womens for her since I knew they ran a little smaller (because I have an older pair size 7 and it is exactly the same length as my newer pair size 8). The 5s were a perfect fit for this exact moment....no growing room so we exchanged for size 6. They also run narrow which is great for her feet.
Date published: 2015-07-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from the width The width of these sandals makes it impossible for people with wide feet to wear these sandals...I have had to send the sandals back 2yrs in a row now for they are way to tight.... I have a dark green pair that I purchased a few years ago and love them don't understand why they changed the width on these sandals..please bring back the wider width and the dark green color...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Sandals I love these sandals. I bought a pair about 5 years ago and wore them every summer all season long. They didn't wear out at all. Their one toe slip on design is wonderful. No buckles, latches, Velcro or any other small parts to break off or wear out. The only reason I threw them away was because they began to smell and I didn't know how to get the dirty sock smell out of the foot bed. Maybe they can come up with a way to help with that, or a product that can be applied to rid the sandal of sweaty feet smell?? My feet will be in these shoes until I can't wear them again, because they are comfortable, supportive and just the right blend of casual/dress, in my opinion. And I can wear them anywhere....Yup...I love my Kea Vent sandals....love, love, love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sandals ever They aren't much to look at, but these are the best sandals I've ever had. I have some health issues which make walking an issue, but these stay on my feet, provide lots of stability and allow me to walk much better than a regular flip flop would. I have them in black, tan, and brown--really wish they came in NAVY!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable This is my second pair! I normally wear between an 8-81/2. I ordered an 8 and they fit perfect. Doesn't stretch out. Stays true to form. Very comfortable. Worth the money. Suggestion:different colors such as navy, grey, red, purple, hot pink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shoe Bought this for my mother who has a difficult time finding shoes that fit. She wears a size 5 or 6 and they are hard to find in retail. She loves these shoes. They are cute and comfortable. Size 6 was too large and the 5 a hair small, half sizes would have been nice. But overall a huge hit with her.
