  • Compression molded EVA midsole is contoured for superior comfort and support of the foot structure.
  • Elastic Closure with Cord Lock creates a quick, snug fit, while allowing flexibility.
  • Waterproof nubuck leather upper wraps around the foot for stability, allowing generous ventilation.
  • 3M Reflective pull tabs provide added visibility during night time adventures.
  • Toe guard so you can worry about the activity, not your toes.

I believe this is my third pair of the Keen Newports. I originally purchased them for backpacking and outdoor water use, and have converted them to everyday wear instead. They are comfortable, roomy and breathe well. They aren't the best in water or outside as small stones can easily get stuck up in the toe area, and they are hard to get out without taking them off. They made great travel shoes a few years back when we took them to Europe. They don't wear out very quickly, but it depends what you use them for. I get 3-4 years out of each pair. The foot bed gets more comfortable as they age. I'm glad they still make the leather version, and as long as they do, I will likely keep buying them.

These are terrible sandals. As another reviewer stated, these sandals stretch and there is only one adjustment method. There is no way to adjust the heel strap so you have to keep trying to tighten the rubber band type lace. That is a very poor design. After two wearings my little toes now poke out the sides, plus my foot slides around in the sandals. Find something with more fit adjustments, at least for the heel strap so you can pull your foot into it. I cannot return them because the problem did not appear until after two outdoor wearings. I cannot recommend these!

I have had a pair of a competitors open toe sandal for 14 years. (you know the one) Very robust, stays on the foot well with the multi strap system. I really like this type sandal.....but...I destroy my toes all the time. Rocks, docks, on the boat. My wife has a permanent supply of big band-aids and hydrogen peroxide in her purse during the summer months. The KEEN Newport H2 solved the problem. My toes are crying with joy. I bought two pair. One pair is two years old and the other is three years old. Stitching is all good and not pulling out anywhere. The patina on the uppers has various shading changes from my hard use. One brilliant point about the design is the large toe box. The extra room also provides shock absorption when you smack the front end on something. Also the added room makes the shoe very comfortable. Why other manufacturers have not adapted this design I do not know. The size and width seemed true to size. The only feature that I don't like is that they are not good for swimming or jumping in the water quickly from a boat. My other sandals with the multi strap system stayed rock solid on the foot. I would enter and exit the water without thinking about what is on my feet. Keep in mind that I don't think the H2 is designed for that purposes.

I'd also recommend: Teva Merrell

My first pair of any sort of Keens was the Newport, which I loved and still wear. But Keen made a mistake in narrowing the toebox in their newer Newports. That reduced their comfort in my opinion, and I can't understand why they chose to do so. I got a pair of the H20 variety and they're way less enjoyable because of this change.

Don't really like these, but I've already worn them so can't return. I think they are pretty ugly but seemed like many people raved about them so I gave them a try. They are too wide and don't hug the foot at all. I pulled the "laces" as tight as they could go and still doesn't help. Not worth the price tag for me.
