    The sea is a harsh mistress.

    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.
    • Hybrid shoe/sandal feels good in or out of the water
    • Webbing upper straps with mesh lining and drawcord closure
    • Metatomical footbed with stability shank and cushy foam underfoot
    • Razor siping rubber sole with improved traction in watery scenarios
    • Item #KEN0002

    So good I'm on my second pair

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

    These things are awesome for rafting, wet wading, paddleboarding. My first pair last for ~5 years. On to the second after the first were treated poorly and eventually started to wear out webbing.

    Lack of quality

      I purchased these sandals in June 2018. It is now September and the seams on the rear of both sandals has deteriorated. This is the 3rd pair of Keen Newport H2 sandals this has happened with. While Keen is very good with warrantying their products they on need to pay attention to and correct the quality of the what they are producing. I have had similar issues with the Keen Targhee 2 hiking low / mid hiking boots with the soles delaminating within a couple months of receipt. When is Keen going to correct deficiencies with their products. They built a reputation on comfort and quality. While the comfort is still there the quality has went down the tubes.

      Comfy but watch size

        Love these sandals. Very comfortable and easy to wash. I saw other reviews warning that the shoe size runs a little small so I ordered a half size larger than I normally buy and they fit great! I recommend you do the same.

        Keen on the Keen...

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

        I bought these as a gift and he wears them everywhere! camping, hiking, to work, to the get the idea. They are a breeze to clean and he loves the wide to box.

        Comfortable and Durable

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

        Wore these shoes in 90+ degree weather trail hiking. Kept my toes from getting stubbed, and had good ventilation even with the relentless heat. Foot bed is super comfortable, and fit is true to size. Only used them the one time. So far so good!

        Great sandals, but beware sizing issues

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: Runs small

        I bought these to replace an older pair of H2s that are starting to wear out after a year and a half of hard use. The old pair was a 9, which is a half-size larger than my normal 8-1/2. The fit was PERFECT. I bought a size 9 to replace them, and they’re not even close to the same size. I don’t know if a 9-1/2 will even be large enough. Keen has always had goofy (and somewhat random) sizing. I’d advise trying the shoe at a local store first if you’re planning to order them online. You may end up saving yourself $7 for the return shipping.

        Use dependent

          I picked up this sandal to use for work (whitewater raft guide) and found it mediocre for water use. Within two months one of the heel pull tabs ripped off, the rubber does not grip well on wet rocks, and the open nature allowed a cut in my heel and a serious one requiring stitches on the inside of the arch of my foot. Of course the cuts would've occurred with any other sandal. I personally would recommend a water based shoe such as the Five Ten Eddy/Pro or an Astral for water based pursuits. I have since moved the Keen to light hiking duties where it performs adequately.

          Avoid at all costs

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

          First pair failed after about 5 days. Keen warrantied the first pair. The warranty pair failed in the exact same way again after about 5 days. The stitching for both heel straps has come undone. The 2nd time around Keen refuses to stand behind their product. Other people have seemed to have good luck with these. Maybe something changed recently in manufacturing? I don't think I got unlucky 2 times in a row.

          Avoid at all costs


          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 6
          • Height: 5'3"
          • Weight: 120lbs

          I think Keen shoes are the best structured shoe out there. Great arch support, H2o proof (for the most part) soles don't wear out fast, so you will enjoy these for quite a while. I have several pair, styles both leather "dress/ casual" and nylon for boating/ hiking that are years old, the leather is H2o proof, looks the same as the day I bought them...not scratched stretched, or stained. The nylon ones I soak to clean them, great product, money well spent!

          Almost there, defect?

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 10.5
          • Height: 6'1"
          • Weight: 225lbs

          True to size, surprising support, tough, but the right shoe has a bump in the middle of the sole that kills my foot. Left shoe no problem. I have put in ample time and activities for break in with no change. Still wearing them in hopes the bump wears out.

          Keen H2 Sandals could be improved

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 9
          • Height: 5'6"
          • Weight: 178lbs

          I am a bit disappointed with how a pair of my first blue sandals that have a two piece sole held up. They're advertised as being usable in the water, but after using them for 1-2 years or so, the two parts of the sole fell apart because the glue broke down. The rest of the sandal was fine and I'd still have them if the sole didn't fall apart. Keen could easily correct this problem by making a one piece sole.
          Also, I tried using Plumbers Goop and Shoe Goo to repair them. It held for a while and then they fell apart again, so I tossed them. The most recent pair of Keens that I bought will be my last try with this brand.

          Great Shoe

          • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 12.0

          I purchased this item as a gift for a family member heading out on a rafting trip to celebrate their big day. The shoes were a total hit. They were not only very comfortable for day wear, but offered the breathability, traction, and drainage they were seeking. In addition they offered extra protection on the toe for hiking and rafting where it can be too easy to stub your toes. Overall they were a great purchase. I would highly recommend these after receiving this feedback.

          Update: We hit a bit of a snag with this shoe. After only 60 days and a handful of uses beyond the rafting trip, the fabric was pulling out the the sole and the stitching was unraveling. I spoke to Keen who assured me that this was not a common issue and directed me to the Backcountry warranty team to resolve. The Backcountry team was happy and willing to assist given the time frame in which this failed. Fingers crossed this was a fluke and the new pair holds up well with use as our other Keens have in the past.

          Best Answer

          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.

          What is the difference between the men's...

          What is the difference between the men's and women's versions of the KEEN Newport H2? I have a men's pair now, but I am a woman, so I can obviously wear either. I LOVE the men's one and worry that there will be some significant difference between the two. I would just buy another men's pair, but I like the colors of the women's shoes better.

          The main difference is the sizing. The men's are built on the generous side of D width and the women's on the generous side of B width. Additionally the men's are slightly higher volume and the women's have a slightly narrower heel.

          What's the difference between Men's Keen?...

          What's the difference between Men's Keen� Newport H2 Sandals and Men's Keen� Newport Sandals (non-H2 version)?

          The biggest difference you will notice between the Newport and the Newport H2 is that the Newport is made with a waterproof leather upper with an anti-microbial Aegis microbe shield liner where the H2 has a polyester webbing upper with Aegis Microbe shield.

          Do the Shimano sandals clip on bicycle pedals?

          Hey John McClintock,

          Thanks for the question. When it comes to KEEN sandals/shoes, the pedal line is SPD cleat compatible so that they can clip onto any two hole SPD Shimano clipless pedals. The models that have this feature are the Commuter II, Arroyo Pedal, Springwater II and Austin Pedal. SPD two hole cleats are not included with the shoes/sandals though.

          I am a woman looking to buy my first pair of Keen's. What is the difference between the Newport H2 and the Venice?

          The style of the straps is the main difference. If you have a wider foot, I recommend the Venice over the Newport. There is less strapping and the shoe is more open. If you are looking for greater foot coverage, go with the Newport.

          Newport h2 or Arroyo 2? I want to get them wet but I want the "all day comfort". The arroyos look more comfortable because I can put in my orthodic insole but how worried do I need to be about them getting wet?

          It really depends upon what is most important to you.

          If getting them wet is a concern, go with the H2. They are made to get wet, while the Arroyo 2 is primarily made for good ventilation, and if they are submersed in water will take quite some time to dry. I have a pair of H2's that I have used for hiking and everyday wear, and have found them to be very comfortable (both dry and going in and out of the water).

          If using your orthotic is more important, then go with the Arroyo 2. The Arroyo 2 is much more of a shoe than the H2 (which is more sandal-like). You even may want to consider finding a local store that carries the H2 and try them on to see whether they provide adequate support.

          what's the difference between Newport and Newport H2 version of sandal?

          Hi everybody! I have a question about...

          Hi everybody! I have a question about these sandals. Ya see I used to have a pair of Chacos. I say used to because I got rid of them. They hurt my feet terribly and all my outdoorsy friends said that Chacos were the only sandals I'd ever need. I did however like the Vibram soles on the Chacos. How are these compared to Chacos? I am going to spent the summer at the Boundary Waters in Minnesota.

          Chacos are maybe a little heavier, but you could use both these and the chacos for the same activities. The chacos' soles are replacable though.
          One of my climbing parters uses these for approaching climbs and they've been super durable for her.

          I personally DON'T fit the keens right but am wearing my chacos right now as I usually am. So maybe you'll be the other way around? one can hope....

          I use the Keens for more hazardous situations. When I'll be in rocky areas or anytime that I might hit my toes on something. (I do it way too often.) Other than that I use the Chacos, especially if I'm going to be spending the day in a river or lake.

          Site says 44 dollars and when I go to check out it says 94 dollars. Is it a sale or not?
          I already have to pay duty on them when they get here at the cost so I have to pay for them twice anyway.
          Do you ship to Dominica, West Indies.?
          I'm looking for a black sandal in a nine us size. Thanks.

          Best Answer

          Contact customer service for the site to clarify this. Sometimes, there is a sale price advertised, but this is only for a particular color or size (and the dropdown "Select options" menu will tell you the price for each size and color available). They do ship out of country (I believe that you place the item in your basket and then check out, listing your address; or you can contact customer service).

          Is there a mens 7 available in the Keen...

          Is there a mens 7 available in the Keen Newport H2 sandal? I am shopping for my 12 year old son. Youth 6 will be too small, but I think the mens 8 will be huge. Do they make a 7?

          The Keen website says that the Newport H2 comes in a mens 7 (and 7.5), but it doesn't look like carries these sizes (you might want to contact them to confirm this). If you can't get this size here, you can likely find it somewhere else.

          Write your question here... Any suggestions...

          Write your question here... Any suggestions on wide, stiff soled, hiking sandles? I really like the look & concept of the Salomon Tachamphibian but hear they're more like a B or C width. I need at least a EE. The Keen Newport seems right too but I'm too clumsy to go up a half size or full size just to get the width I need.

          These aren't super stiff - more than a sneaker, less than a hiker. But Keen's tend to run wide, which is why I like them. The toe box is designed to be roomy, also - which I also like. On sizing, I usually wear 11.5 to 12, got a twelve (on a past experience with another Keen model), and could have stuck with an 11.5. These are nice sandals for my wide feet.

          How do the sizes run in Keen's I wear a...

          How do the sizes run in Keen's I wear a 14 in North Face shoes but a 13 in Nike do they run true to size?

          I wear a size 9.5-10 in most footwear, running with the 9.5 in the more 'quality' brands. I have a pair of Keen snoe boots that run true but I just received the sandals in a 10 and they are tiny. I will return them for a 10.5 maybe 11.
          I hope this helps.
