This is a great shoe for an active little boy, in this case my grandson. He loves to wear them, and most important are easy to put on and take off. They are great to clean, just stick them in the sink and wash with a brush and good as new! These are his second pair and with more to come I'm sure.

My son refuses to wear these without socks. He says they hurt the bottom of his feet. Socks defeat the purpose. He's worn them a lot, because they're all he has, so I can't send them back. Stuck with them. I wouldn't buy these again. Color combo is cute, though.

I was very pleased with the purchase of these keen kids shoes. Zappos has exceptional customer service and delivered within 24 hours. It does not get better than that.

Great looking shoe and fits well. My 6 year old son loves this shoe and is very picky about sandals. They are rugged and wash great.

Great shoes for my almost-3 year-old. We wanted "water shoes" that were more supportive and close-toed, because he sometimes slipped/fell in his open-toed Tevas. We were told that he should wear these with socks the first couple times to break them in, and that seems to have done the trick. No complaints since he started wearing them without the socks, and so far (knock on wood), no more falls. I don't really know how comfortable these shoes actually are since my son is not even 3 yet, but I gave 4 stars because he seems to like them but they did take some breaking in.

I bought Newport H2s for three of my children. I was pleased with look and color combination. Sizing seemed right on. It took a little adjusting of straps to make my five year old comfortable but he hasn't complained since. The kids wore shoes exclusively on our Disney vacation. We walked a lot! No blisters or my feet hurt talk.

These are wonderful. I have size 10 for my almost-4-year-old. They get wet, they are rugged, you can even throw them in the dryer on low.

I love this shoe. I have two boys 3 & 5 and this is our second year to purchase this shoe. It seems very comfortable and supports their arch unlike most sandals. Sometimes if they are wet they rub at the ankle. My only complaint is it is too hard for the kids to get the Velcro strap through the little loop by themselves. I love all of the new colors they came in this year! The light blue and grey was perfect it did not look so harsh on pale legs.

Great shoes and this is the fourth pair I have bought. I have two very active boys that wear these sandals all summer long. Every day, all day. The sandals get passed down from boy to boy. I don't know of another sandal that will make it through two rough summers and still have life! The sandals can get stinky, a quick trip through the washer solves the problem. I have also found a spray at REI that keeps sole odor away. Love the sandals, love Keen, love Zappos!

I love the Keen Newports. I purchased these for my 5 year old and expect them to last all summer. They are the 3rd pair I have bought and the first two are still being handed down after 3 years. They do start to stink after a little while but I just run them through the wash.

My 6 year old absolutely loves these shoes! He says they're comfortable and easy to put on by himself (and he also liked that there were so many colors to choose from!). I like that they're so durable and waterproof. These sandals are the perfect summer shoes!

I purchased the Keen Newport H2 in Toddler Size 8, camouflage green for my very active, trout fishing, rock and tree climbing 4-year old grandson Ethan who lives in the wilds of Bozeman, Montana for his 4th birthday on May 18, 2011. During a Skype conversation with my son Todd and Ethan on Saturday June 4th, Ethan told me he really liked his new Keen's, and was able to really run fast wearing them and also play in the water as well. My son held the Newports up for me to see, and clearly they were getting some serious usage. I'd say we have a very happy 4-year old out there roaming the fields, streams, and ponds of Montana in is Keen H2 Newports provided by his Grandfather and Zappos. (All within 24 hours of ordering.)

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks, Keen, Patagonia

The shoes are awesome. They hold up great. They can go in the washing machine (in a lingerie bag). They can be worn for any water activities without falling off or anything. We love Keens! The only thing is that they run really big. I had to go a full size down for my kids.

Love these sandals for my boys! They are sturdy, breathable, and washable. They protect their feet and are perfect for anything they get into - from the beach and ocean to the playground to bike riding or scooting. The perfect summer shoe! Also they look very nice for both play and parties! And the boys love them too!

I am a big fan of Keens for summer adventures--they're breathable like a sandal but protect your toes and offer traction like a trail shoe. My whole family has them and they're perfect for summer hiking, whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing, trapping through streams and rivers, and more! Keens do tend to run wider toward the front but the cinch cord makes the fit adjustable.

Great durable shoe; my Little boy loves these shoes. He wears them almost every day. He got a pair last year but outgrew them. He loved them so much we bought him a second pair.

Bought these for my 4 year old. Like them a lot. Very stylish, and great for summer as a sandal/tennis shoe combo. He claims they are comfy too. Last year I bought him Stride Rite ones that were similar, but they ended up smelling and weren't as cute.

I would say that my grandsons both love and wear Keens. I will definitely buy them again. Their mother is a big fan, too! If their Mother is happy, then I am a customer for a long while.

I purchased these shoes for my 3 year old son. He loves them. They are perfect for hiking and camping as they are made from a soft rubber type material, kinda like crocs, that washes really easily. So far no problems with them at all. And as always Zappos is the best place to oder from.
