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 picked up this pair because I needed sandals that would make for better driving than flip flops. They're excellent for driving. They feel a lot like ordinary shoes, actually. So far, they're exactly what I need.

These are the best made closed toe sandals. With that said the price point is too high. pinches at the pinkie toe, slightly tight at the top of the foot even when lossening. Color choice are good

from Amarillo tx

i usually wear a size 13 but a few reviews say they run a half size small so i bought a 14 and they seem to fit maybe just a hair big when sit but when i stand my big toe reaches the tip about a quarter of an inch my smaller toes have a ton of room the tip of the shoe is really round and does not arche down with the way the toes arch down as they get smaller to the pinkie toe and think that's why it feels large on that side of the foot but i do love them and i would buy them again. also i am 6 foot 6 inches 330 pounds if this helps anyone.

This was the first pair of Newport H2 that we had to purchase for my son in a men's size. I donor like this design at all!! The kids have the benefit of having and adjustable Velcro strap on them, these do not. It makes them very difficult to get on and off. We ordered his normal size and he couldn't even get his foot in so we ordered the next full size up. Finally with some struggling he got his foot in. Once in they are comfortable. But why in the world would they not include an adjustable strap for men they are not all created equal!!! Boo on you Keen!! Hopefully they rethink this design. As for us I got the shoe wet, put a can of soup on the ankle area lengthwise, and let them dry. They are now stretched out to the point that my son can make use of them because other than that, these are the very best supportive sandal around. He wears them to camp all summer long and never has gotten his toes hurt etc.

I love Keens and this pair was no exception. I got a pair in black because I broke my tailbone and regular shoes are hard to walk in right now. These really grip and give a solid base when walking and and cool and comfortable. I even wear them with summer skirts and sundresses.

Keens Newports are excellent sandals/casual shoes (possibly THE best!?!). I have been wearing them devotedly for several years now, I am seriously considering buying several pairs of these just so I can stock up on them, in case they suddenly go out of style or get discontinued or if the design gets changed (which I hope it doesn't!). They are THAT good. That's how loyal I am to them! I wear them on an almost daily basis for something like 9 months out of the year (hot climate where we live) and they are EXCELLENT. Great fit, comfortable. I also walk long distances in them fairly frequently, and never have had any major problems. Stepping in puddles from frequent rains? No problem! They are also "nice" enough that I can even get away with wearing them at work in most situations. If you wear them with nicer clothes, they are just closed-in enough that you can totally get away with it! It was a casual style event, but both my wife and I even wore them to our own wedding, LOL!

My husband bought these shoes for a boat trip to Costa Rica, and he loves them. They wore beautifully for the whole trip, including the daily wet landings, and he continues to wear them on summer days for walking, light jogging, gardening, you name it. The toe cap makes them a good choice for activities you might not otherwise want to do in a sandal. They look pretty much like new, and they are several years old now. A really good shoe.

My husband wears a size 15 shoe, medium width. He's 65 years old and has foot issues. He loves Keen because there is always ample room in the toe area. This is his second pair of the Kern Sandle. These fit perfect, comfortable out of the box!

I was reluctant to spend this much on a pair of sandles but am very happy that I did. They took some time to break in but now are great for walking all day at amusement parks or the state fair. Unlike a lot of sandles they aren't smelly after getting wet or smelly.

I'm not sure how to describe this exactly, but the right shoe is "lopsided". Like, it never sits correctly on my foot. I keep trying to re-adjust it, but it never sits straight. And, and this is serious, I therefore adjust my gait in a not-good way. I compensate for the lopsidedness, and so my leg gets tired in weird places. This is my second pair of Keen's. I had a similar problem with my first pair, but they were too big. I thought maybe if I got the right size, that would fix the problem. No. These are the exact right fit, but they simply do not want my foot to sit correctly in the foot bed.

Brands I'd also recommend: Never had a problem with Tevas.

I love Keens in general and am ordering my 4th or 5th pair of the H2. Having said that, these break down at the leather panel in the back where the straps come together, WAYYY before the soles or any other components are gone. Serious design flaw, particularly for the nylon strap version. The leather versions are a bit sturdier, but don't dry out as fast and get stained and beat up after a while.... not even sure if they are around any more. I had the last pair re-sewn at a local shoe repair, and he confirmed that he sees that portion break down all the time. The repair lasted 6 months or so, so something is not designed properly to handle the strain of those straps coming together at that location lateral to the heel. Anyway, they are still the best I've found, so I'm ponying up for another pair, which will probably last through 2 summers and 2 tropical winter vacations, just like the last 2 pair. Not bad, but they should be capable of more. Chaco's for example, will last for years and years, they just don't offer any toe protection, are a bit heavier and difficult to adjust to avoid blisters at the big toe. The two companies should merge and build the perfect water sandal.

Brands I'd also recommend: Chacos

Comfortable, practical, durable and rinsable. A great shoe for summer hiking/walking or anywhere you need extra support/protection and also some air flow for cooling. I like the neoprene covering underneath the cross-straps, and the bungee-style tension laces. Plenty of room at the toe box for movement. The only things that would make these better for the next version would be a softer footbed on top of the EVA that allows for more sweat wicking, evaporation and air movement, and a bit more arch support. The molded plastic is very stiff and gets clammy.

I bought these for my 11 yr old son for a trip to DisneyWorld. We knew there would be a lot of walking so they needed to be comfortable but also could get wet, and also dry quickly. They definitely fit the bill. He never complained that his feet hurt and are easy to take on and off. They will definitely be his go to sandal for the remainder of the summer as he can run, bike, walk, etc. in them. Yet, they still keep his feet cool. And a bonus, they look pretty cool as well.

Great looking shoe, but if you have big ankles or high instep (not arch) you can't wear these things without having an unbearable tight fit around your ankle. The ankle has no adjustment. If it did, I would order a bunch of these.

I bought these for my husband to wear when we kayak. They are great. They seem to be made very well and I think they will last for a long time. He has had his foot stuck in the mud a couple times and when he pulls it out and washes the shoe in the river it comes clean. Love these
