Love these shoes - My husband is very particular about the shoes he wears due to some foot problems. He received these shoes as a birthday gift 3 weeks ago and hasn't stopped raving about them. Very comfortable and easy to wear!

Newport H2- Charcoal w/Royal - I've never heard of KEEN footwear before and was skeptical but once I got a pair I was really impressed. The Newport H2 is a VERY rugged, versatile and comfortable sandal. I wear it to the beach, around the house, on my dive boat, on light hikes, while fishing, etc. And for what it's worth it looks cool too. Be warned...these are about to become very popular. My girlfriend now wants a pair of her own in purple! Keen did a great job on the design and it really isn't as clunky or radical as it appears in the picture above. If you're going on vacation near the ocean (like Hawaii, Costa Rica, Honduras), you should buy a pair. They are more practical than water mocs and easier to clean. And buy them from Zappo's. They are $5-$10 cheaper then retail stores and I got mine delivered in 2 days!

The Best!!!!!!!!!!! As a professional guide for over 24 years, I have searched high and low for footwear accommodative to the rigors of whitewater rafting. Finally, after years of slippery rocks, stubbed toes, foot-line rope burns, and assorted other maladies encountered in repeated days of commercial rivertime I can truely say, I've found the best! The Keen Newport H2O absolutely smokes the competition. Great design, rugged build, and incredible comfort. I'm very impressed. Worth every dollar! I give this product my highest endorsement. And you can take that to the bank!!!!!!

Great fishing shoe - Used the shoe on a 3 day fishing trip, right out of the box very comfortable, and quick drying. It met all my expectations and more.

What has happened to Keen? These shoes feel a little tight and I have had no issues in the past with Keen sizing. Hopefully they will stretch with wear. The shoe is well constructed however. Think I will order a half size bigger anymore for Keens. They need to go with the European sizing method, like Ecco.

This purchase replaces an eight year old Keen sandal. I'm glad I read (Keen.com) to bump my shoe size up 1/2. That saved me a re-order. The fit and finish are up to Keen tough standards. If I could have been in the room when they sign off on the model, I would have voted for a wider opening, say 1/8 of an inch. That would have taken the putting on on the sandal from a few seconds instead of the current couple of minutes. These are not TSA shoes!

These are great shoes. I wear these almost exclusively. They are comfortable enough for walking, golf, etc. They can be hot in warm temperatures. Also I had to return the last pair because they were too small even though I had been wearing these exact shoes in the same size. Due to Zappos' excellent customer service returning was no problem.

Almost a perfect fit. Maybe once I break it in a bit more my heel won't be sticking out of the back. Though I will say it was comfortable to wear right out of the box. It's non-slip for the most part. However, during our trek I did lose my footing a few times on wet moss.

Keen's makes a great shoe. This is my 2nd pair and I've been very happy with these. This pair seemed a little smaller than the normal sizing, but have noticed they stretch a bit as you wear them.

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.

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.

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.

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!

This is my 2nd pair of Keen Newport H2. After 6 years I wore out first pair, which is why I ordered a new pair. They seem as good as the first pair that I purchased.

Bought these for trip to Costa Rica, and they were perfect. Very comfortable and good for transitions from dry to wet to dry, etc. Sand does get stuck (and dries) between your feet and soles; just takes some scrubbing to get it out. The style/appearance takes some getting used to, but is worth the utility of these shoes.

I've been walking in the Newport H2's for almost a month now. I want to give it a 5 star rating but Keen fell a wee short with failure in the lacing system. First the good: They are extremely comfortable to walk in, even distances with a light backpack on. First set of sandal/walkers ever I could say that about. Fit my feet snug and so far I've not noticed any rubbing and/or blisters. Unfortunately, as I was pulling the bungee lace to tighten them up, the lace snapped from the top, and there is no way to repair it. I've tied it off to itself so it is still wearable but for a sandal that is supposed to be so rugged, I was disappointed. Hopefully Keen fixes the bungee lacing system so it is stronger at the connection to the plastic grip in future editions because other than that it's a great sandal.

I bought these shoes for my son. He says, "Other than the small rocks that get into the shoes (which is expected with a sandal-like shoe), these shoes were a great fit and very comfortable. A good shoe for wide feet."
