User Review: Keen Men's Newport
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $90
Great everyday sandals.
- Don't dry fast
- Stretch a bit
I have had these Keens for 4 years now. They have been absolutely wonderful! However, unlike their brother the Newport H2, these guys are not for the trail. They do not dry nearly as fast as the nylon on the others do, debris gets caught and then ground into the leather footbed while out on the trail. I honestly stopped using them for outdoor activities long ago.
However for an outdoorsy feel while you're running around town, they are perfect! The footbed is very comfortable and has molded to my foot, that I enjoy a lot. However I did get some stretching on the backstrap that caused me to have a bit of a backless shoe feeling.
Overall, outdoor shoe->no, everyday comfy shoe->yes.
