Description

The sea is a harsh mistress, so you need good shoes. Wear Keen's Newport H2 Sandals.

Even in a well-maintained boat sans holes, your chances of getting your feet wet are extremely good. Enter the Keen Newport H2 Sandal with a design that protects your toes and a non-marking sole to keep the deck clean. A fully synthetic upper puts hydrophobic material against your skin and keeps it dry. The Newport H2's hybrid shoe/sandal design is more comfortable than a full shoe and protects your foot better than a sandal. The unique anatomical outsole gives superb traction and support on sea and land, and an antibacterial footbed controls moisture and keeps the stank under control.

Great Outdoor Shoe

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 9"
    Weight: 190 lbs
    Size Purchased: 9.5

My first pair of Keen's lasted 7 years. In addition to everyday wear, I wore them hiking, trail running, bow fishing, fly fishing, kayaking, camping, surf fishing, even bow hunting pigs in South Carolina. I almost hated to throw away my old pair when the new ones arrived.

It's a mistake to think of these as just a water shoe. They tend to gather grit and gravel right under your foot when used for wet wading and you can't shake it out without removing the shoe. They are outstanding at activities that take you in and out of water tho. They do not stretch out when wet. The straps don't rub your heels and the foot bed doesn't get slippery. They don't lose traction and the closed toe design offers plenty of protection. There is basically no performance difference at all whether wet or dry and that's what makes these so exceptional.

I've had the new pair for a month now and the fit, quality, and performance are exactly the same. The Keen Newport H2 is that rare piece of outdoor gear that excels at far more than advertised.

I got these because a fishing/camping buddy had 2 pair and loved them. Now I see why. Super comfortable. They run a little bit small. Mine are a bit tough to get on, but once on, they feel great. I have other water shoes for rafting and fishing. These are my dress sandals for downtown and around camp.

Perfect durable & comfy travel shoe

Thanks to everyone's review comments I selected the KEEN Newport H2 sandal for my husband prior to our recent trip. Comfortable with and without socks for long days of walking over uneven terrain, varied weather conditions, protected toe cover and finally, not a dorky looking shoe! Right away we started noticing the same sandal everywhere - now fondly referred to as a "KEEN alert!". A pedicycler in New Orleans proudly showed us her 'Keen' foot tan and bragged about what a durable, comfortable, reliable shoe this is. Purchased 1/2 size up based on other reviews, resulted in perfect fit for my husband. He's not a big commenter on shoe fit or style, yet on this trip he must've said at least once a day, "I love these shoes!". Best ever, even in the rain the traction was reliable & after a torrential downpour, they dried out quickly. Now I'm back to order a pair for myself! Thanks KEEN!

Comfy not Durable..

I received these as a gift from my girlfriend. Long story short I was hopped up on the comfort of these sandals. I use them to kayak the river here in Texas. The bottoms of the rivers are pretty ragged with limestone.. Well the shoes made it through 3 kayak trips before i noticed the soles were delaminating from the insole. I was upset to say the least. I didnt want my girls feelings hurt so I didnt tell her.. they are pretty much unusable due to the flapping sole.. . Dont buy these sandals they are JUNK...PURE JUNK

You can repair the sole on those shoes using Goop or a similar contact cement. The sole on the left shoe of my last pair came loose at the heel after three years of hard use and I glued it back together using Goop. They lasted four more years after that.

Best Sandal EVER!

I love Keen Newport sandals. This is my second pair for myself. My four kids have all been through a dozen or more over the years also. They are versatile and comfortable. You can't beat these for almost any occasion.

how do these fit with a high volume foot,...

how do these fit with a high volume foot, if these are not good, any good recommendations for a close toed shoe like this one that would be good for a high volume foot

I have a wide foot and generally wear an 11.5 shoe. I have these in a 12 and that seems to be just about right.

Comfortable shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I wore them canoe camping for a week and they remained wet the entire time but were still comfortable. They ran small and I had to exchange for a full size larger. The exchange process was seamless.

Great shoes!

Next to my Teva flip flops my Keens are what I wear all summer long! They are comfortable and durable! I have walked the Las Vegas Strip to a light hike up the canyon in my Keens and my feet have never hurt! I love my Keens! I bought these pair for mom for Mother's Day and she loves them. I know this is a man shoe but she didn't like any of the colors in the women's section.

Great Sandal for Everything

Great fit, great price, there wasn't anything I could not do on our vacation on Maui and Oahu in these shoes. Best item I packed for the trip!

Love this hybrid hiker

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

I typically wear a 10.5, and the 10.5 was fairly snug. I like the fit so I feel more sure while hiking, but might have been able to go to an 11. I love the feel wearing around town on errands, and my feet don't get tired or sore.
Update: Just did a family outing to the Zion narrows, and couldn't be more happy. The kids and I all had our keens on, and they were amazing. The close toed design kept our toes safe, and the open sides allowed small rocks and pebbles to pass through.

Overall a great shoe!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Got these for my husband to go fishing in. He loves that they're super comfortable, easy to slip on and off, no rubbing and odour accumulation is pretty minimal.
They're great for wearing on the beach, but the grip tends to let him down when it gets wet - particularly on the rocks when fishing. He wasn't too confident in them for that, but everything else there are no complaints! We'd get them again when these ones wear out!
With respect to sizing, he's usually an Australian size 10. For ordering online, I always use his actual foot measurement and order off the sizing chart. Turns out he needed a 10.5 in these. Ordering off the sizing chart, I've never had a pair of shoes sent to me that weren't the right size. Saves a bunch in shipping costs between the US and Australia!!

Keen H2 and superb service!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I originally wanted these sandals for fly fishing. I was a bit concerned about the fit, since most seemed to order up a half size. That's what I did and I am very pleased with the fit and comfort. I have plantar fasciatis and this is now my most comfortable "shoe" and are already my favorite. BackCountry price matched, which I appreciated.

I ordered "late" one night (2nd day) and had the shoe within 12 hours! Are you kidding me? Outstanding!

Extremely unhappy

  • Gender: Male
  • Fit: Runs small

Do not believe for a minute that the H2 is true to size. I wear size 13 in every shoe I own. This includes a pair of Keens Newports and a pair of Keens Arroyo II's, both of which fit perfectly. The H2 is half an inch shorter than the original Newports I own and so tight I cant get my foot far enough into it to get the heel strap on. At best these supposed size 13 shoes are a 12.5
Unfortunately, as an overseas customer, the shipping costs involved in returning the shoes and getting a larger size posted back is in excess of the original purchase price.
Backcountry's response to my queries about the sizing has basically been "bad luck, not our problem." And my queries about the costs of returns was met with "You can try to email our returns department and might try and help you." 3 weeks later I am yet to get a response from the returns department.
This will probably be the last pair of Keens I buy and DEFINITELY the last purchase I make at Backcountry.

David this doesn't sound like backcountry at all. Has all your correspondence been through email? I always use chat and just last week I had a sticky situation and they took care of me above and beyond my expectations.

Responded on

I too have had similar experience as C'N'P - stellar service. So much so, I seldom purchase from other places simply because Backcountry will take care of me if something isn't right.

Responded on

i purchased a pair of sandals (Chacos) from Backcountry that were to large. Customer service not only hooked me up with the return label but expedited the smaller pair 2day so I would have them for my camping trip. I give Backcountry my biz because their service is so great.

One of My Best Purchases of All Time

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

I've had these sandals since summer 2009. The tread still looks good, and I've put A LOT of miles on them. I keep thinking that they'll wear out, but they just keep going like the energizer bunny.

Excellent stitching, amazing quality tread, super comfortable, excellent fit, and I run them through the wash (air dry) to reduce odor accumulation. They're a no brainer if you need a great pair of sandals.

Lately I've been walking 5 miles in them every other day (on pavement). It was initially a mistake wearing them on such a long walk, but it turned out to be a blessing. They actually started to feel better than sneakers over time. My legs and ankles have also also gotten stronger as a result (I'm 38). Who would a thought?

Kauai mud was great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used these shoes in Kauai and they performed well in all aspects. I used them from climbing lava rock, climbing huge rocks, up and down steep mountains, swam in them and hiked through over 2 miles of muddy trails. They rinse out easy and grip great.

I wish it was always summer. These shoes are simply too comfortable. I love them.

Would these be a good choice for a 15 day...

Would these be a good choice for a 15 day adventure Vacation in Costa Rica in February?

Hey Michael,

I took these down to Nicaragua for 2 weeks and they were perfect. I highly recommend trying them out for about a week beforehand, just to make sure they feel good and you don't get blisters. But I found them perfect for exploring jungle, beach and dusty, rocky trails.

Years of use and satisfaction.

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

I've been wearing (and so has everyone in my family) these Keen Newport sandals for the past 4-6 years. I've worn them while white water rafting the Colorado in the Grand Canyon. I've worn them Scuba diving in Belize, Cozumel, and more. But also, I wear them hiking the Wasatch mountains in Utah during the summer. For summer hikes they're extremely breathable, and keep my feet dry and happy. I do get some pebbles in there, but with a shake of the foot they're gone.
These shoes have great grip. They're perfect for day hiking, swimming, or anything involved with water. They're extremely comfortable and will sometimes leave hilarious tan lines.
