Newport H2 Sandal

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

Super comfy

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 10.5

Just got these and love them already. I have a low volume/profile foot (bony) wide forefoot, narrow heel and average arches. I was able to use the toggle cord to lock in the fit. Although the heel straps seemed a wee bit loose, when my feet swell in the heat...the extra room shouldn't be a problem the arch support is nice and soles look solid. Will know more when I test them out this weekend. I usually wear men's 9.5-10 and got these in 10.5 based upon reviews. Fit is great in lenght, width and volume. Someone with a bigger/meater foot should fit well in them as well.

Not comfortable

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

The sandal looks very sturdy with an aggressive sole that should provide good traction and cushioning. I wore it around the house for an hour. Unfortunately, it was very uncomfortable for my foot structure. The fastener over my big toe joint caused pressure and pain. Different adjustment tensions did not help and had to return. This sandal may be great for other feet. I also tried the Chaco Odyssey which was much more comfortable, but cushioning not as good. If I did not have issues with the Keen, I would have went with it over the Chaco.

Didn't Last

  • Size Bought: 10.5

I purchased these May a year ago after having a previous pair for like 5 years. This pair is coming apart near the back strap on both sandals. I want to love these as I have for years but now they are barely out of warranty and have failed. In my opinion this is a manufacturing defect not a wear and tear issue. They made it through two summers. I also had to size up one whole size.

Great Sandle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 8.5

I was hesitant to switch from traditional rafting sandals to these as I liked the ease of drainage. Still I wanted the toe protection these offered and made the switch this. I know now I should switched sooner. These are far more comfortably than my rafting sandals and far superior once out of the water. I have worn them kayaking, canoeing, and riding PWC with the only misgiving being they are slightly more difficult to shake gravel out. But they get far less gravel in them.
Knowing these run small, I up-sized half a size and ended exchanging for for a full size larger. Still - Great sandal!

Comfy Sandals

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

Took these hiking and camping in Kauai, Hawaii and they're comfortable.

Very Good

Awesome shoes, would buy more !

Sturdy Sandals for any water activity

  • Size Bought: 10.5

Great sandals for boating trips, etc. Gave these to my dad for a trip to Iguazu Falls in South America. He used them on a short hike to the Falls. And on a quick boat tour. He loves them. They are comfortable and hold up nice. They need to be broken in before heavy use.

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.

Love it

    Bought it for a son in law, he took them caving. He said they were comfortable and good tread. He recommended ordering up a up a half size.

    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 store...you 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!

        so easy to wear

          I even wear these in the middle of a Utah winter, everyone knows me as the Keen guy. Love these sandals!

          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.

          Bought these for my Dad. Sturdy little pair of sandals, keep your feet cool and are robust enough for some moderate trail walking.


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

          I got these for my dad and he loves them. This is his second pair and wears them daily in the warmer months.

          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

            Great sandals

              Great looking and true to size
