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.

More attractive footbed shape than the Newport. The gray blue colors are beautiful. Can be dressier as well. Husband loves these.

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. :)

I had been eyeing Keen Newports for a couple of years. Then I saw a few negative reviews, all about the stitching coming loose quickly. I contacted Keen, and they told me they had addressed the issue. I finally took a chance and bought a pair. I'm glad I did. They felt very comfortable as soon as I tried them. So far there has been no loose stitching, after wearing them about 20 times in the past 3 weeks. The closed toe reminds me of clogs, which I don't find very stylish, but I still like the overall look, and the comfort more than makes up for any minor cosmetic deficiency. I would recommend these.

Disappointed when we received these in the mail. We ordered the green backlit Newport H2s thinking the green was subtle and muted. No way, Jos . These are GREEN! Kelly green. Grass green. I convinced my partner to get these shoes for our trip to Costa Rica assuring him that the shoes wouldn't draw too much attention. These are pretty darn bright. Great color, just not what we expected. The quality of the shoe and the fit are incredible, as always! We'd return them and order a different color if we weren't going out of town so soon. Bummer!

I'm an amputee that wears a prosthetic leg. I need fairly flat bottom shoes with good support. These sandals are light and have very good support. Very comfortable too.

I bought these based on a recommendation of a friend and to replace an old pair of Teva sandals. I love my Teva's but my wife says they look old fashioned so I bought these for a trip to Cozumel. They are absolutely terrible in the sand. It packs into the front of the shoe and becomes uncomfortable within 20 steps. To get the sand out you have to either take them off or walk quite a ways shaking your feet. I am hoping they will work better at the lake where there is no sand. Right now they appear to be a pricey disappointment.

My husband was looking for a pair of sturdier sandals and he is liking these; have done a few light hikes in them and they've felt good. As other reviewers commented, you'll want to order 1/2 size larger than your normal size as these run small.

Love them and wear them to work in retail standing all day. I have great trouble finding shoes that feel good out of the box for my mid-low arched feet but these do. They do have enough support to keep going all day. The Keen website recommends buying a half size larger than normal and that was true for me. They feel good with or without socks. They do need washing occasionally if you don't wear socks but they've come out fine so far. I'm buying more, though since I'm a woman who has to wear men's size shoes the custom made colors at the Keen website are tempting for something more feminine.

Bought these shoes for my husband and he loves them. The color looks very good outside. He has been struggling to find proper footwear that does not cause knee pain - looks like these are doing good so far!

My hubby loves this sandal. He wore them out and wanted to replace, so I bought the Newport with leather straps -- but he doesn't like the fit and feel of the leather ones. They just don't break in like these nylon straps on this Newport H2. He will go back to the Newport H2 on his next pair, for sure!

Great alternative to a certain more famous sport sandal which my wife has informed me I am no longer allowed to wear. Apparently they became dorky while I was away. Anyways - great shoes, love the fit, love the lightness, love the protection.

Bought these for my husband since he thought his ancient Tevos were still okay. I had the Keen in womens and wanted him to have a great pair too. When they arrived in Zappos fantastic speedy fashion and he tried them on, he was wowed! I purchased them a size larger than he normally wears and they are perfect. He loves them and is thrilled that I got them for him!

I tried the Newport H2 on at a local store but couldn't find a color I liked. I tried on the 10.5 and had room to spare so tried on the 10.0; Ultimately decided that the 10.5 was most comfortable. My 10.5 arrived from Zappos and I could barely get them on. They felt smaller that the 10.0 I tried on in a local store. And the right foot felt half a size smaller still. I don't know if this is simply a poor quality control issue with mislabeling.

This is a great all purpose sandal with siped soles that even make it a deck shoe. This is my third pair and the bright color is different for me. I love them.

Poor choice - the shoe is quite heavy and theres poor air flow. Feet get soggy after a while which kind of defeats the purpose of wearing this kind of a design. The sole is particularly prone to not dispersing moisture from the bottom of your foot. overall I would not recommend this shoe.

Keen sizing is never quite straightforward, nor are my son's always growing feet. I had to exchange them for a different size, after sizing based on Euro sizes. These are great shoes. My first pair lasted eight years before I realized that though they still looked great they did not have any traction any more. It is great that they are washable, as they stink after awhile. They are a good product, and it is nice to find them on sale.

I bought these for my husband. He was happy with them. Fit comfortably. True to size. The only thing they are snug to put on. The back strap is stiff to pull out to slide foot in, but he thinks it should stretch the more he wears them, otherwise made well.

These sandals have only one flaw. They are huge. What I did not realize before purchasing them is that the only tie system is the yellow lace lock which works like a lanyard. You cannot tie these sandals nor does it have Velcro attachments. The stability in this case is greatly compromised. How can you walk distances in shoes that you cannot tie or can barely adjust the lacing system? Otherwise the hybrid idea is great but why not go the extra mile and add Velcro or allow us to tighten the fit. They are good for the beach or around the pool/boat/house. These will not be going on any walks anytime soon.

Love these things, very comfortable and great to just kick around in. Absolutely, buy for vacation near water. Block Island is rocky after Sandy (storm) so these were perfect. Normally I ware wide (E) but these fit great. I did have to buy a 1/2 size larger, this I, found, is normal for Keens. Bought some woman's Keens for my wife, also had to be a 1/2 size larger, also a wide foot. Size 8 fit her 7-1/2 foot just right.

I've gotten addicted to Keen sandals - these are my 'formal' black sandals. They are extremely comfortable and seemingly indestructible. For whatever reason, Keens fit me perfectly (though they run a little small) and give excellent support. Love these things!
