I purchased Arroyo II as they was on sale, but was hesitate as the last pair of Keens Newport H2 shoes I bought lasted only about 15 months, stitching gave way around the ankle area not good for rock hoping as the water weakens the stitching is my guess. mind you I hardly used the shoes. Anyway we will see how these go.
So far The Arroyo II feel good and seem a little lighter than the H2 as well as the webbing near the toes are abit higher so less chance of small stones getting in.So happy at this stage , only time will tell if I will get better wear than with the H2
All the best features of a hiking shoe and a sandal in one comfortable style. Open vents in the waterproof leather provide maximum breathability, and the multi-directional lug outsole bites into tough terrain.
