I'm going to be traveling Southeast...
I'm going to be traveling Southeast Asia, Maylasia, and Indonesia. I plan on doing some intermediate level hiking and will definitely be in and around water. Also how does this styel compare to the Newport H2 in terms of running? I'd like to forgo a running shoe in my pack, but for a jog of maybe 4 miles how would either of these sandals hold up?
The Newport has more stability than the Venice. neither one is designed for running. If your running four miles a day for a extended time I would recommend a running shoe.
Both are durable for light hiking and water.
