Just an FYI since it's almost Spring, Keen has made a new MUCH more flexible shoe, the Seacamp CNX. They are easily folded in half lengthwise and 

widthwise. We just bought them today at REI so I can't say how they'll hold up but so far they are great. I'm just so happy my sandal search is over I

thought I'd post. I promise I'm not working for them :).

Thank you for this!  My daughter has a movement disorder that impacts how she walks.  She often does much better barefoot than in shoes, but sometimes ya have to wear shoes!  We've been using Merrell (sp?) barefoot shoes and she LOVES them but it's always great to have more options.  Fantastic!!!

My DD wears the Merrell barefoot too! It was such a relief to find those. They really helped her do so much more. It's amazing how much shoes affect her movement. We went to the arboretum today and the Keens were fantastic. She was able to do everything as if she were barefoot. I'm am so relieved to have found them. They were great for my almost 2 year old as well. Shoes have been a challenge, esp. summer shoes. I hope they work for your DD!
