What is the difference between the Newport...

Posted on

What is the difference between the Newport H2 and the Venice H2? Is there a difference in size and weight or is the just the extra strap? With the price difference I would expect one to be different then the other, but I cannot tell without seeing them in person. I am looking for something to go use to go hiking in the summer and to be able to get wet and not worry about getting them dirty. Are these easy to clean?

The Newport runs a little smaller than the Venice, so if your a 8 go to a 8.5 in the Newport.
The Newport also has less volume across the instep of the foot, so if you have a high instep(high arch) I would recommend the Venice.
Both are good for hiking, but the Newport has more support due to the thicker rubber in the sole, this also makes the Newport heavier.
