Write your question here...The Newport is advertised as a boating sandal with sipes in the trend that do extend out farther than the Laguna. The sides are very tight and after looking at a 3 yr old pair the sipes were still very tight and closed. The Laguna has a narrower tread with sipes in it however they are much more open and appear to look like they would be better on a wet boat deck. The Newports have to be completely bent to see any sipes and that is not what will happen walking on the deck of a sailboat. Which is the better sandal for boating?
