Women's Kea™ Vent Sandal is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great arch support and light weight This is my fourth pair of these sandals and I love them! My first pair I purchased in Hawaii and the next year I bought another pair. I have high arches so many sandals are too flat for my foot. These are light weight but substantial with the toe enclosure secure. They are advertised for water but the sole is very sturdy and is good for walking as well. Ps -apparently my dog thinks they are tasty as well and now I have 3 pair

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable sandal I discovered the Kea Vent at a shoe store when in search of a comfortable walking sandal. I have since bought 2 more pairs from the Columbia website. It is more comfortable than a flip flop because the thong is more like a sleeve. There are no friction points on any parts of the straps.It is very comfortable for fitness walking during hot weather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sandals These are the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned. The cushioning is great and I love the toe loop. I bought 2 pairs in different colors and so glad I did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Sandal Ever I bought these in the outlet store to try. I put them on and never took them off all summer. They are the most comfortable and fashionable sandal ever. I buy them whenever I see them on sale. I have them in all the colors. Try them, you’ll thank me, I promise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kea Vent My mom got a used pair from a friend and fell in love with them. I bought her a new pair for mothers day and she loves them. She has a lot of problems with her feet and these feel great and help a lot. Would like to find her a purple pair too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1/2snecker 1/2 flip flop Trying to not wear flip flops as much but I still can’t get away from them. This flip flop overs a lot more support and stability then just try average thong. I love them. Perfect fit as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable sandal I love this sandal. It is very comfortable and provides good support. I have lymphedema in my right foot and I wear a custom toe cap so I was concerned the sandals wouldn’t fit properly. I was very happy when they fit perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly comfortable! As with the 'Kambi' (and Columbia's other similar designs) that I have worn for years as we cruise and travel the world - this sandal is supportive and good looking. It has the same formed foot-bed with good arch support, good traction and non-marring sole, plus water doesn't hurt them (even a long-lived down pour). This is definitely not a flip-flop (nor is the Kambi). I considered this sandal with it's toe-sock, because a reviewer said this design (which is made similar to the Kambi) helped hide her buniouns. I find it does that, and I also find the toe-sock helps reduce foot slipage in the shoe. As with the Kambi, the leather is a decorative trim over the comfy sock/lining. I ordered the 'dark brown/hawk' and I'm happy that it is a combo of dark brown/warm-brown not the red-brown as pictured. I trust this shoe will be as durable as the others I have owned (and worn almost continuously). Now I need to order the other 2 colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live with out my KEA's I have worn these sandles for many years. I keep at least 2 pair at all times and wear every day during warm weather. Have been know to wear them in winter too. Great for kayaking and camping. I have walked miles in them. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to sports sandals I prefer the toe loop for active sandals, I bring these backpacking as a luxury item at the campsite and also for hot, easy day hikes where I'll be near water. I've had them a year and they hold up great, even as I transfer their use to locker room use at the pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last a shoe for me. I have not worn open toed shoes in 25 years because of my ugly bunions. Finally someone made a shoe that I feel good wearing and they completely hide the ugly bits. Thank you! I now have three pairs that should last me years because I don't ever want to be without them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sandals ever This is my third time buying coulumvia sandals like these. I still have the other two pair, a little worn but still use. They are the best, my others have lasted 8 years plus. Great product wish all things lasted this long. Customer forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sandals I have been searching for a replacement sandal for an old style of another brand which I loved and finally found it. The Kia Vent has a wrap of material around the big toe which holds it in place on the foot so it is secure and you don't have to tense your foot to keep it on. The sole is comfortable and doesn't have a design to dig into the sole of the foot which so many others do now. My massage therapist saw them, approved, and told me to throw away my old shoes now! I am getting them in every color. Haven't washed them yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best sandal ever! I found a pair of these sandals at a discount store 20 years ago. They were the best purchase in shoes I have ever made. Since then I have every color 2 pairs , have worn out 3 pairs, it takes 20 years . I work, hike, go out and wear them year round. I work at a Retreat Center and can be on my feet 15 hours a day. These shoes save my feet and legs. They mold to your foot and massage your toes as you walk. I have people stop me and ask what kind of shoes are those, sold, another customer for Columbia. I recently purchased 2 pairs for a lady after I told her how great they are. All my daughters and grand daughters have several pairs. Great gift. They outshine any top of the line sandals. I want more colors preferable dark, light colors show stains. Maybe purple with contrasting trim or navy with teal. I love the new color blue. I throw them in the washing machine and they come out looking new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable footwear I purchased this to go on vacation. I bought the light beige ones because that color goes with all of my outfits. Extremely comfortable sandal, very good support in the arch area and I have chosen to buy an additional black pair to wear at work and an extra lt beige pair for future wear. Would highly recommend for anyone who will be on their feet for a while.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need 1/2 sizes Only available in whole sizes. I wear a 9 1/2, so footbed does not truly form fit my foot.
Date published: 2017-06-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third pair, perfect as ever This is my third pair of these sandals. They are comfortable right out of the box and would last longer if I didn't make a mess of them by hiking through mud and salt water. I really don't know why I buy other sandals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best toe-loop flip flops These are absolutely the best toe-loop flip flops ever!! I am on my second round and have worn out and replaced black, brown and whitish sandals. Their construction keeps foot in place, unlike traditional flip flops or regular sandal making walking smooth and predictable. Never stop making these!!!

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 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.
Date published: 2017-04-03
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 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 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 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.
