Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The KEEN Clearwater CNX women's sandals bring a hybrid design to a minimalist-inspired, lightweight platform that feels like an extension of your feet when you're adventuring in wet environments.


The Keen Women's Clearwater CNX Sandal is a lightweight sandal for beach and casual days alike. Sporty at first glance, but this summer adventure sandal drops in weight when comparted to not only the Newport H2, but also the Whisper. It's all in the Footbed and Outsole, where you have a low to the ground, 4mm Midsole drop. There won't be so much of the rubber toe bumper, making trips to town a little more casual than looking as if you've just gotten off the trail or beach. With a bungee cord for security and flexible, multi-directional grooves and razor siping in the rubber Outsole, you'll be ready for anything.
