The Keen Newport is an outstanding sandal, and Zappos is by far the best online retailer, bar none. I have size 13 feet with negative/no arch whatsoever!!! Needless to say, finding shoes or let alone sandals, is nearly impossible (don't know what I would do w/o Zappos). I used to wear Birkenstocks and still do for arch support, but they obviously don't do well in wet, muddy conditions. This is my 2nd pair of H2s, and I bought 2 pair this time: one for yard work around the house and one for summer outings. They offer tremendous ankle and arch support for all day comfort while the adjustable lace system provides a great fit with or without socks. My whole family has been wearing Keens for 5-6 years now and loves them! My last pair lasted through 4-5years of abuse of my 275lb frame!

This is 2nd pair of H2 and have regular Newports. The H2 are great, comfort-wise but both pair came apart where the backstraps come together at the ankles. Got less than a year's wear on each of H2 because the straps wore in two.

I had to replace my 10+ year old Keen Newports, size 10D. I am a woman who wears 11D in a woman's shoe, but unfortunately have never found this size/width available in Keen's collection anywhere. My old pair was leather, these are nylon- I liked the color. I should've heeded the reviews and ordered a half size up, when the 10D's arrived, they were too tight. I recently sprained my knee, and needed the extra support Keens provide. Zappos provides free shipping both ways and on all returns/exchanges, so I was able to go online and process my exchange for a 10 1/2D and print off a free shipping label to send back the other pair- I had my new sandals within two days. Very happy with the service, and I expect to get a decade of wear out of this pair.

Surprisingly small. Been wearing Keen Newports for years, but H2 rear strap in what was supposed to be the same size, was too tight to put on. Sending them back, will have to go somewhere I can try them on.

I received these just in time for a weekend trip to Bear Lake, Utah. Wore these all weekend while driving, hanging out on the beach, boating, tubing, fishing, and walking around town. Form, fit and comfort were better than expected. 3 months later I still love them. I would certainly purchases again.

I love these sandals. My first Keen pair ever but will not be the last. The quick lace system works great, and the sandals felt like a perfect fit right out of the box.

Great shoes, well use to be. I own two pairs of these shoes. First one purchased in 2012 and still great shoes. Second pair of identical shoes, purchased in 2014, total junk. Seems like lack of quality control. Bottom of right foot simply feel off. I used gorilla glue to fix this issue. Second issue, right foot, arch support piece. Fell out, glue used must have given up. 2012 pair has no issues of this kind, and this original pair has been used in sea water all the time. Over all I am very disappointed with new shoes.

Bought these for my husband to take on vacation, since we would be biking, walking and kayaking. They are the perfect shoe for multiple activities. He likes these as much as I like mine. Very comfortable, quick-drying and they have nice support, even when walking or hiking.

I like these sandals. They're comfortable. I do find that they make your feet sweat. When I'm on a trail or ground that is dusty, has pebbles, etc., the sand, pebbles, small sticks, etc., get in the sandals with no problem.

Comfortable, well made shoe for water sports, etc. Have not walked in them for any significant distance yet. Size 12 is usually a tad loose on me, but 11.5 a little too snug. These 12s seem snugger than most, but not as tight as 11.5 would be.

There is only one person in our family without these shoes! They are great for all the fun travel in the summer or even the winter trips to warm climates: theme parks, water parks, pools, beach trips, riding zip lines,etc. They are good for everyday wear! The tip we would give is to go up one size for easy on and off. They don't 'come off' unless you want them off. We give them five stars!

My first time using Zappos was an excellent experience. The site was so easy to navigate and pinpoint what I wanted. The style and color and size ranges are fantastic. This is my third pair of Keen sandals so I knew what I wanted. The delivery was quick. The price was fair including free shipping and return if necessary. I so enjoy!

2nd pair after I finally wore out my first pair after 5 years. I got these new ones for a trip to Alaska. They were perfect on light hiking days and river walking when I didn't want to wear bulky boots.

Any water sandal that you can continuously wear all day/night for days on end has to be a good shoe, and these Keen Newport H2's are it. They have not rubbed blisters on me as sandals have in the past, and are extremely comfortable. Hold up in salt water/sand without fading. I found that I needed a half size larger than I normally wear.

Shoes have been excellent. they replaced another pair of Keens' after the leather stretched and they became too loose after one summer. Hope these are better.

Okay, so the color is a bit on the loud side; living in Florida requires a summer shade of Orange. I ordered 2 styles in size 13 (I get my money's worth) the Newport 2 and the Clearwater. For me, the Newport 2 was a better fit and just felt right. For the past 2 weeks they have been on my feet and no issues. Saddles are comfy, well made and Zappos deserves credit for their great customer service and sales support.

I love these sandals! I had the exact same color and style for 6 years of near-constant spring and summer wear before the soles finally wore down flat. The rest of the sandal was still completely comfortable and useable, but I decided to replace 'em to get back that traction. I'm expecting another 6 years of comfort at least!

I owned another pair of keens that I've worn so much that I can't tell the model specific that they were. I ordered these in (12)= my standard shoe size and they were tight. I had hoped there was a (12.5)offered. Instead with Zappos free ship, I took a chance on (13), expecting them to be too large. They are not, and if there was a (13.5) I'd have sent these back too. I love the color. They look very similar to the brown ones I've owned. I am still hopeful that maybe they will stretch some with break in.... But I've worn them 20+ hours now and they are not getting more comfortable. And there's no way I could wear them with socks/ winter. So I'm sad about these, but now also confused to try other Keens without going somewhere to try them on...and that's always a PITA, finding a brick and mortar store, that HAS multiple shoes and multiple sizes around 12.

I really like these shoes. I'm walking 4-5 miles per day through Europe and these shoes are very comfortable and breathable while keeping more dust and dirt out than a regular sandal. Nothing is worse than hot, sweaty feet and I feel pretty cool in these all day. I'm officially a 10.5 very wide EEEE. I ordered both the 10.5 and 11 from Zappos. The 10.5 fit but I elected to go with an 11, which also fit comfortably and has worked great.

Comfortable, durable sport sandal. Bought these for my teenage son who dislikes all sandals, but wears and likes this one. He's had problems with his toes and these are great as the toe is protected. I've had a pair in the past and liked everything about them but the wide look on my feet. Doesn't bother my son, though. :)
