User Review: Keen Men's Newport
Use: 100 mile hike - dayhikes - around town - swimming.
Price Paid: $70-80 - llbean
Great product. These sandals proved themselves when I first got them. Right out of the box I hiked 100 miles through Shenandoah National Park. I wore them with and without socks. Wet and dry. By the end of the trip everyone's feet looked like ground beef while mine remained without a single blister.
Whether or not you believe this is up to you. I have yet to get any sort of blister from these. I love them. I can honestly say that I would much rather hike in these than a pair of boots.
The only problem is they offer no ankle support whatsoever. The heel is also exposed and I have banged it up on a few rocks here and there but not very often. Otherwise they are totally amazing. I would recommend them to any person who is looking for a sport sandal. My friends have Tevas and get blisters from them.
No blisters, no rubbing, no irritation. No matter the condition. If you buy them, buy them from LL Bean because they have a life-time warranty. I had to return one pair after using them heavily for a year and they sent me a new pair with no questions asked. Got to love it. Have fun and never get lost.
