  • Minimal upper construction eliminates layers of material for light weight and a more comfortable fit and feel
  • A minimal heel-to-toe drop allows the foot to move naturally, connecting to the ground without overcompensating

  • 4mm midsole drop for all-day comfort
  • Lightweight PU midsoles and TPU midfoot shanks for long-lasting support and comfort
  • Keen.Protect consists of KEEN's patented toe protection where the sandals outsoles wrap up and over the toes for ultimate protection from debris and rocks
  • Secure Fit Lace capture system with 2mm static laces enables an easy on-and-off and offers a comfortable, secure fit
  • Multi-directional flex grooves on low-profile soles enhance the natural flexibility of the feet and improve ground contact
  • Non-marking rubber outsoles with razor siping lend advanced traction on slick surfaces

Great Water Shoe

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large

I really like these Keen's. These are a nice low profile fit. I found them to be a little big, but for a water shoe I also prefer them to be snug, so I sized down a half size. I have used these to fly-fish on hot summer days, and also any time near water, these are my go to. They are decent as a hiking sandal, the grip is ok. These are a little bit more of a low profile compared to the Newport H2.


excellent sandal

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

These sandals make great water shoes for rafting. The sandals have great true to size fit and won't come off even in deep mud! These sandals feel great on my feet wet or dry, I hardly notice I'm wearing them on the river.


Great sandal

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I will preface this review by saying these are my first Keens, I've never owned the classic Newport or any other kinds. I bought these shoes because I like minimalist/lightweight shoes, and these were on sale. I am on my feet all day at work and wore these for about 3 months straight. I have flat feet and a lot of feet issues. My feet are very blister-prone but I never got a single blister. After about 3 months, I noticed my back started to hurt after a long day and I think it's because these are just not that supportive (clearly - they are very lightweight and the arch support is minimal). I still use these for short term use (ie out hiking for a few hours, walking around town, etc) but they're not supportive enough anymore to wear all day. I consider them more like a flip flop or a slipper now. Really not too bad for 3 months of constant use, and they show almost no wear. I never had any issues with the toggle. I actually just tuck the laces underneath themselves and don't use the plastic toggle at all.

Also I am female but have big feet and generally buy mens shoes. The blue/yellow has grown on me. It's no fashion statement, but is not ridiculous either.

Great sandal

Light, solid, awesome.

Picked these up as a backcountry water crossing and camp shoe... something light to haul in, yet comfortable, rugged and can be submerged without issue. They've succeeded in all respects.

Much lighter than the classic Newport, but of similar design. The soles do leave a little to be desired, thickness-wise, but again, they're lightweight, so no real issue there.

Be weary of the plastic pull toggle at the end of the elastic laces. A good tug will pull the elastic out of the assembly, but is easy enough to put back in. Just grab the elastic itself if you need to really crank them down.

Would have been 5 stars without the toggle issue.
