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.

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.

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."

Haven't had these long. For being as open as these are, my feet sweat way more than expected. The foam layer the foot sits on is an interesting choice; I am curious to see how it wears. Very comfortable on long walks on concrete.

These shoes actually fit like a glove, but I think you want a snug fit. My feet are pretty darn close to exact size and a a little wide but these were a great fit and for the activity level this shoe is designed for that's what you want. Easy on/off, comfortable but not quite as airy as I would have liked but, man, are they versatile.

I am on my third pair so obviously am convinced. Spend a lot of time at a lake house in and out of the water a love them - comfortable, great protection for feet, wear well. They are my primary summer footwear. The one thing Keen could improve is the durability of where the strap that goes around ankle joins the rest of the sandal. This is where my Keens have come apart. Still much better than other summer time footwear

I would not recommend if you have wide feet. The shoes look great, and I can feel that the support is fantastic, so if they fit, I'd strongly suggest them. Unfortunately, they didn't come close to fitting, even after trying three different sizes. If they had an option for "felt more than a full size smaller" I'd choose it. I have wide feet, so I know buying a full size larger is often required to get shoes (that don't come in wide) a full size larger. The 10.5 I bought (my size) were so short, my big toe touched the end of the toe box. At 11.5, the shoe finally felt "almost right" in the length department but I could tell it was still too short. In the width department, normally going up a full size makes shoes wide enough to wear. At a full size larger they were still so tight my little toe scraped against the shoe inside. So they may be great for "normal" width feet, but if you're a wide, I would try to find another style (which is virtually impossible in a water shoe).

The shoes fit nicely and are comfortable right away without a breaking-in period. If I'm not wearing socks, I can feel the breeze around my feet as I walk, though they're surprisingly warm when I'm standing or sitting. Visually, they're not super-pretty, but they're substantial enough that most people won't notice they're sandals at first glance when viewed from the front. The material seems durable and the workmanship is of high quality. They are slightly challenging to put on; I find I have to sort of crawl my foot into them using my toes before there's enough clearance to pull up the rear strap. Not a big deal, just something to get used to. They're surprisingly heavy, thanks to the thick sole. Heavier than some of my completely-enclosed shoes, more like the weight of small boots. If you're considering these as an extra set of footwear to take on a backpacking trip or a hike, make sure you're prepared for the extra weight.

I'm pleased with this sandal which I purchased specifically for hiking in rivers in Bryce Canyon. Most reviews cite no break in period; I concur, but I've been wearing them to get used to the feel. They are not as comfortable as my shoes when driving a car, but they have been fine for walking. I look forward to trying them out on uneven terrain.

These are a great cross between sandals and tennis shoes. They are comfortable with plenty of cushioning. I have only purchased Teva's before, but this sandal is just as good.

Awesome all purpose outdoor shoes. I used them hiking, fishing and just walking around. My only issue with them is when they get wet, they tend to stay wet and make your feet stay wet until you take them off and dry them and your feet off, which is not always impractical if you are out and about.

I tried the Keen NewportH2 and the Keen Turia Sandal, as well as a few other brands. The Keen shoes were the finalists. Both were a bit small for the size tso there was a tie on that. The Newport H2 was a relatively tighter fit around the foot and toes. That made it harder to get on and more snug once on the foot. I liked the look of the Keen Newport H2, but preferred the relatively more spacious feel of the Turia.
