Mixing normal sandals and boats tends to result in broken, bleeding toes and furious boat owners. Keen developed the Newport Sandals in the sailing Mecca that is Rhode Island to solve these problems while retaining the comfort of sandals. A patent-pending toe guard protects your toes 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 from being thrown overboard by black-mark-addled boat owners. The Newport's waterproof leather upper and anatomical last make it comfortable enough for extended wear on long bluewater voyages or just walking around town.

Appalachain Outdoors
The classic Newport Sandals from Keen Footwear aren't bestsellers for nothing. The Newport takes on anything that comes you way thanks to its hybrid construction. The razor sipped outsole and multi-directional lugs offer you excellent traction when cutting through water, and the rubber toe covering keeps your feet protected from any dangerous terrain. Thanks to the Aegis Microbe Treated lining, the Newport helps fight odor and bacteria buildup.

Been wearing KEENs now for years, mostly the Newport! The Newport is a sensible, fun, practical, well made and long lasting shoe that I have worn day hiking, biking, teaching and living all day every day even in the winter.The bottom of the sole has decent grip for uneven and slippery terrain though the grip of bottoms do slowly wear. I switch to a KEEN Arroyo II for rough hiking or a Keen low top hiker in the winter when it is really cold and messy outside, be it around town or on the trail. The Newports as well as the Venice and Whispers also come in H2 versions with slightly lighter weight materials in the straps, making them dry out a bit faster than the non-H2s though ALL can get wet! .The Arroyo II has the same bottom as some of the hiking boots, with lots more grip, and though they don't look as if they can be used in water. I wore mine in the tropical Pacific even in the ocean, but don't expect the Arroyo II to dry out as fast as a Newport H2. . Only down sides of the Newports is eventually the grip of the sole wears down, and sand and small pebbles can get in and under your feet. Yet the Newport and Newport H2 remain my favorite of the KEENs and of any shoe!!! PS 66 years young!

Keen Newport - If you're looking for an all-purpose cross shoe for light hiking, light jogging/running, and some water thrown in this the shoe for anyone. If you are in between a whole size and a half size - get the half size. This is also good when you want to wear a light to mid-heavy sock. This is also good for someone that has a wide foot and has a narrow heel. The toe protector top is what sold me, along with the better sole instead of an EVA. If you're a woman and have a really wide foot go to the men's sizes. The whole/half sizing applies also; the men's just has a wider footbed for comfort and to wear socks. When walking alot the size of the footbed accommodates the swelling foot. For those women (and you know who you are) limping after two hours and you're on vacation, this is the shoe for you. This shoe is good for anyone with a medium to xx-wide foot (thin sock only), narrow feet may have to make their judgment call or wear heavy socks. They're a light shoe and easy to pack. Read the description on zappos on the benefits of these shoes.

I bought these and returned them only because I traded them for the ladies H2. My mom bought the H2 because of size selection so I tried hers, they were much lighter and a tad more comfortable. The bony protrusion on my ankle is low, and the strap on the Newports rubbed on it, the H2's strap sits lower therfore no rubbing. Had I never tried the H2's I don't think I would have had bad comments for the Newports either...just fell in love with the other. I can't comment on the actual long term comfort, as I haven't used them yet...awaiting a cruise in 2 weeks for use. Will be doing lots of water excursions....from other comments I anticipate comfy feet the entire time!!!
I agree with many others...choose a 1/2 size larger. This was true for mine and my childrens.

Bought mine in NY in 2007, have worn them eversince in Winter and Summer on land and in the sea with and without socks!! THE most comfortable footwear I have ever worn. Sadly the heels have become so worn that I need to get a new pair. Living in Ireland means the tax on importing here doubles the price!! Have bought a lighter version sandal and Keen enclosed shoes, my partner has Newports and shoes for men, my sons have them, I think they are that good!! Have been unable to get the Newport H2 navy in colour in my size here, anyone know of a supplier in Dublin Ireland where I can get them?
Thank you Keen!!!

When I first tried these on, I was not only concerned about their clunky appearance, but they where also not as comfortable as I expected. I started wearing them and the more I wore them, the more comfortable they became. The cushioned footbed became molded to my feet. The look has grown on me, too. I actually think they look cute on my foot. They do make my feet sweat, as I had read they would, but that is just the nature of barefeet in leather shoes, I'm sure. Bottom line... Very comfortable pair of shoes, great for wearing anytime! Glad I purchased them, and from BackCountry at that. Great sale price and fast shipping.

Have you ever caught yourself in a situation that causes your toe to get jammed? With these you will no longer have to fear that happening! The protection on top of the support is absolutely amazing! Whether you decide to go out on the trail to get in a nice hike/ trail run, or fish for that record setting catch out on the lake/ ocean you will not be disappointed! Be sure to go up the extra half size due to the toe box and you will be golden!

I love my new Keen Newport shoes!! I ordered a full size up and they are perfect. I wore them all day today. I had read they were not as comfortable as the H2 pair but I think they feel great. My son outgrew a H2 pair and I actually wear his pair all the time - but wanted my own because his are not really my size (too big).

As a naturalist for Red Rock Canyon National Cconservation Area, I lead interpretive hikes for a living. The new Newport is an awesome all terrain shoe from trail blazing to rock scrambling. I do not feel the shoe or think about my feet after a hike of even 6-10 miles. This is the first product review I have been motivated to give. Try 'em, you'll love em!!

These are very comfortable, although a little heavy (maybe I should have gotten the H2). They are very sturdy an secure for walking on uneven terrain, and just as nice for sidewalks and such. Easy on and off, and my sweaty feet don't get slippery in them. You might want to order a size up from your usual.

I love my KEEN sandals

These sandals are very comfortable and I can wear them all day long! I bought them to wear with my up coming vacation. I'll be doing plenty of walking on the beach and various excursions and these sandals will be an excellent footwear for both. There's no need to to pack extra shoes!!!

Negative Reviews:

This is the 4th pair of Keen's I have ordered and the first 3 fit perfectly...but not this sandal. I held it up sole to sole with my other shoes and this sandal is visibly shorter than the others. I am returning these for a 1/2 size bigger...unfortunately I will not be able to get the same color or style..I am going with the Venice H2. I love my other Keen's but I was disappointed that their sizing is inconsistent. I was really looking forward to wearing these.
