Recommendation: Keen Shoes

Phoenix recommends…

Keen Shoes
Shoes and Accessories

I like Keen shoes because they have a lot of androgynous styles in all sizes. Some shoes run wider than average, but they don’t offer wide sizes.

Feel free to check them out! And please share any shoe brands you know who offer non-gendered shoes – bonus if they come in wide sizes!

    Anyone interested in going “barefoot” (to stimulate muscles and tendons in the feet, ankles, legs, etc.) should check out Vibram Five Fingers. They’re thin rubber on the bottom and fabric on top. They do have separate sizes for males/females, but that’s just to accommodate the different widths common to each sex. Indeed, on their site’s FAQ, they suggest men trying “women’s” sizes and vice versa to get a proper fit. The actual shoe looks the same–awesome!

    I have issues where the only shoes I have found to not cause extreme problems are actually my Bates M9’s… I wish I could find other shoes that fit my feet and looked good… and were more androgynous in the technical aspects. Appearance doesn’t matter to me so much as how my feet, like all of me, are in the middle of everything.

    Personally, I love my Fluevog sneakers! They’re amazing if you can afford them (or get them on sale, like I did).

    I like boots. I have a thing for a good pair. That being said, I currently have three pairs of Doc Martin’s, and crushes on a few pairs of New Rock Boots. New Rock, from what I’ve seen has UK sizes, and they start at 7, which is a little bigger than where most brands start.Docs do have a few women’s boots and shoes but for the most their men’s collection is unigendered. They also have a size converter. Motorcowboy boots is amazing. You give them your measurements and they make custom boots. The only problem is the price.

    I confused eveyone by being the trans girl who bought and severely over-wears mens/unisex boots.

    I’ll second the love for the Vibram FiveFingers. I wear Classics in a men’s size, but they have a bit of a ballet slipper look and have been mistaken for womens’ shoes. Overall, they’re just eccentric enough to be outside of any gender expectations.

    I bought these for my husband and his feedback 5 star. They look cool, feel cool.
