Description

Get the comfort of sandals without the mangled toes when you wear the Keen Newport Sandals.

Mixing normal sandals and boats tends to result in broken, bleeding toes and furious boat owners. The Keen Newport Sandals were developed in the sailing mecca of Rhode Island to solve these problems while retaining the comfort of sandals. A toe guard protects your nubs from deck rigging or rocks on shore. The Newport's soles are made from a grippy, non-marking rubber that prevents you from slipping and falling overboard, or being thrown by black-mark-addled boat owners. The Newport's waterproof leather upper and anatomical last make it comfortable enough for extended wear on long blue water voyages, or just walking around town.

Love 'em!

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

After breaking them in for a couple weeks I love these sandals. Initially I felt they were comfortable, but also "loud" and clunky. However I now know that was due to the newness of the sole. After a few days things settled in and they're perfect. They haven't left my feet since I picked them up 2 weeks ago! Comfortable and they go with just about everything.

Love 'em!

Disappointed!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I was so looking forward to my first pair of Keen Newport sandals. Very much disappointed in the way they feel when I walk, so heavy & feel like big cloud hoppers. The way their made is excellent, but the way they feel for myself is terrible. I wear sandals daily but I cannot wear these.

Great sandal!

Best fitting, and looking sandal ever owned. I have wide feet, and the BC gearhead certainly steered me in the right direction with this selection. They are great for kicking around town, and get compliments on their looks as well. Very happy.

Wore these right up to the Muir snowfield on Mt Rainier before skinning up under a full moon.

What shoes do you wear to fly around on a broom Harry Potter style? Keens of course.

Keen Newport

I am so glad to be back in a pair of Keens. I tried another brand of sandal after my last pair of Keens had been put out to pasture, but it wasn't the same. No fussing with tightening straps or buckles, just easy on and go. I love the softer footbed of the Newport vice the H2 and it dries nearly as fast. As always great toe protection. I look forward to many miles in my new pair of Newports.

Perfect

I selected a full size larger than regular & they fit perfectly. I have a wide foot & my little piggies are very comfortable, no rubbing or squeezing. The overall support is similar to a running shoe with a slightly stiffer sole. I literally opened the box, put them on & have been wearing them since - no complaints at all

I wear them in & around salt water all day. I drive in them - even had the odd skate in them!

disappointed with these sandals

After about 6 months, dye from the sandals leached onto my skin and toenails.

Best Pair of Footwear I've Ever Owned!

I wore out one pair of this sandal and am now on my second pair. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I usually wear them with socks, which keeps my sweaty feet very comfortable, and allows the perspiration to evaporate. Normally, I wear a wide width shoe, but this one fits fine in the standard width. My only complaint with the first pair I owned is that the rubber sole started delaminating from the leather upper. But that was after about two years. Nothing lasts forever . . . .

Keen Newport Sandal

This is my second pair of Keen Newport sandals. When I first received them, they felt extremely small and narrow even though I ordered the same size as my other pair. I sent them back to get a 1/2 size larger pair which fit much better. However, these Newport's feel much stiffer and less comfortable than my first pair which felt great from day one. I'm a little disappointed with these. Hopefully they will get more comfortable with wear.

Awesome Sandal...Keen Newport!

This is by far the most comfortable and durable sandal I have ever worn. Love the cushion and style of these. I bought the wren green/brown color...Sharp looking.
Highly recomm these sandals by Keen. Oh, I suggest going up one whole size for a better fit. Normally, I wear 11, I ordered size 12 instead. Good call! These ROCK!!! Columbus, OH

Make sure you order a half size bigger than you normally order. The quality is amazing as always.

Not for me

The Newport sandle is made very well. I had bought cheaper brands and thought one day I would go ahead and buy the expensive ones. I am now returning the sandles because I could not find a size to fit comfortably. The problem is the insole part where your toes go. There is a ridge that is supposed to fit between the toes and the pad of your foot. I could not get a size that would fit that had the ridge in the right place. Maybe it's just me. I am trying a pair of the Keen water shoes that do not have the ridge, and they seem to fit better.

You will not be disappointed!

This is the 3rd pair of these that I've had in the last 8 years. Each pair will hold up to whatever I throw at them. Thousands of miles on each pair through creeks, mud, snow and just walking to the store. Wash them a few times a year and their good. I wear them year round here in North Carolina and rarely have anything else on my feet cause these are SO comfortable. Never do they have an odor. Sizing: I wear size 13 in dress shoe, 14 in running shoes and 14 in these.
