i haven’t tried hiking with a pack on in hot weather with these, but they are my summer faves:

walking, rock hopping through water, it’s all good.

I needed no break-in period. These felt like a dream right out of the box. There’s a deep heel cup, generous arch support and roomy toe box.

The lacing system is quick and easy, the sandals offer great traction on wet rock.  

As comfy as my trusty old Birkenstocks, but completely amphibious. Can’t go wrong with these.

Thanks for the review, Lilia.

They have been comfortable from day one. I live in these all summer. If it weren't for my Keen hikers, I would wear them in the snow. Good product I hope Keen hangs onto in the future.


  • Easy on
  • Super comfy in the water, on the trail or in town
  • Good ventilation


  • A bit heavy
  • As with any sandal, getting rocks out, near impossible without removing the shoe

I adore my Birki river shoes, however finding a pair that protected the toe I found to be difficult. From day one, these Newport H2's have been AWESOME. Good traction in the water and out. They aren't hard to swim with once you get used to their weight.

I just love them, enough said. My Keen hikers are just as wonderful.

Love these water sandals. They are comfy almost all day. Toward the end of the day I developed a rash on the tops of my feet and my guy has the same style and his feet smell by the end of the day! Great overall, very sturdy and durable for our active lifestyle.

  • Tops of feet get intense rash
  • Bad smelly feet
  • Debris gets into small opening

Overall this is a great sandal for water sports or just about anything. I will be looking at the Rose style Keen, it looks to have less coverage on the top of the sandal and that may help my feet breathe more.

I love Keen products and will stay unless I run into the same problem with a different style.

The most comfortable and versatile shoe I've ever worn. I was a confirmed Mephisto wearer until I tried the Keen Newport H2. They feel wonderful, they handle any terrain, they dry quickly after getting wet, and they look great. I've worn my Keens standing eight hours in a drafty warehouse, and my legs and back felt great.

Use: in water, on the trail, around town, at the park
Break-in Period: none
