Write your question here...I am debating between the Newport H2 and the Whisper. I want them for street walking everyday, walking on the beach (yes this includes right in the water) and some moderate hiking. Which of these is best for these activities?
I can't speak to the newports, but these Keens do great job with everything you mentioned.
The Newport has more support than the Whisper and would be better for all day hiking and walking. You will find the Newport runs a little small, so go up a half size and it also runs wider then the Whisper. The Newport is a C width and the Whisper is a B width.
