Back To School With Keen {Darby Boots Review}

Keen logo
As soon as spring arrived this year, my kids and I were more than happy to ditch our winter boots and pull out the sandals.

While I'm always extremely eager to get my tootsies back into my flip flops, both of my girls were chomping at the bit even more than usual in their excitement to get to wear their Newport H2 sandals from Keen.

All summer long these sandals have served both of my girls well and, as the cooler fall weather looms in the distance, I've been a little sad about having to put this high quality footwear away into the closet. These were such a great way to keep the little feet in our house protected, comfortable and stylish!

Fortunately, Keen offers much more than only hot weather shoes. In fact, they have a full collection of footwear for men, women and children that are designed to work for multiple aspects of your life and go just about anywhere that you bring them.

And, just in time for the back to school season, Keen has shoes and boots of all kinds that will keep kids fashionable no matter if they are at home, at school, on the playground, at the park and much more.

When the trendy yet functional Darby Boot arrived, it was immediately clear that Big Sister E was going to be prepared to make it through full days of learning and playing with ease.

The cutest boots around, the Darby Boot is available in Black, Java and Sweet Grape and features a coordinating flannel collar to the leather upper that adds a fun and hip splash of color.

Combine it with the super-soft inner lining, the visible stitching along the front, and the decorative wooden button and you've got a fashionable pair of boots that any young girl is sure to love.

As well as the eye-catching, adorable look of the Darby, I appreciate that Keen put in all of the high quality, durable, sturdy details that they are known for.

The inner zipper makes for easy on and off, the thick outsole will have no problem keeping out the rain, snow or slush this winter, and the traction on the rubber bottom eases my worries over my daughter slipping or falling on any ice.

Perfect for school, adventures, dressing up and more, we have already been extremely impressed with the Darby Boots and their ability to stand up to a full day of play.

Big Sister E can't wait to show off the stylish look to her friends at school and I have no doubt that these will coordinate perfectly with pants, jeans, skirts and dresses.
