I normally wear an 11 in womens and a 9 - 9.5 in mens. I tend to buy mens shoes instead of womens because of sizing issues.
I initially ordered a 9 in the Keen Newport H2 sandals and the foot bed fit okay but across the top of my foot was just WAY too tight. So I sent that pair back. I then ordered a size 9.5 mens and had the same problem. They were just way too tight across the top of my foot no matter how much I adjusted the bungee strap on the shoe, so I sent those back. I ordered a size 10 and the foot bed was a bit big/longer but they were comfortable across the top of my foot. I wore them hiking (as I did with my previous pair that was over 8 years old - hiking, kayaking, every day shoe) and walked across/in the water with them as I normally would.
So, now... the size 10's are way too big/lose after wearing them around for about a week and I'm stuck with shoes that are too big. I mean I can't send them back after wearing them out hiking etc. (3rd party seller through Amazon)
Funny thing is though, I went into a Dicks Sporting Goods Store and tried on a 9 and 9.5 in the Newport H2, but a different color. Ironically, the 9 fit me better and was more comfortable than the shoes I ordered off of Amazon. I had debated on just buying those but my boyfriend had the same color sandals (he had a similar issue with his sizing and ended up ordering 2 sizes larger than what he normally wears) and didn't want us to have matching shoes. My luck he'd try to put mine on instead of his and tear mine up with his big boat feet. So I'll just deal with the big shoes until I can either find someone who wears the same size and wants them or... something. I don't know. Just disappointed in the issues I had with the sizing.
Other than that, I love the shoe, the color and the brand. My old pair, I would wear year round pretty much.
Let me start out with a travel guide point - footwear is the number 1 space 'eater'. I like to travel light with a backpackable, travel bag - see LLBean. Everybody I talk too that travels says newbies: 1. Take/Pack too much clothes/footwear, and 2. Don't take enough $$$. IMHO: Everything you need for indefinite travel overseas can go in an overhead, easy to carry bag. Sandals can be your only shoes providing you're not going formal or need hiking boots. Sandals do everything - guess the Roman's knew something !
Anyway, I've just finished a year and several trips; in the summer I wear nothing but Keen Newports. On travel (unless there's something special) I just take Keen Newports. I normally wear a 9.5 but order 1/2 size larger - 10 - the fit is perfect. I've tried Teva's but they have velcro closure straps - sounds OK, but the velcro picks up stuff and is a pain to keep clear and from snagging in the wash. The Keen's have stretch bands that are easy to use and snag proof.
So far this year I've gone on two fishing trips in Canada and both times wore the Keen's - once that's all I had. I either wear them without socks or with 'DarnTuff' merino ankle socks (life time guarantee - no poly phew!). I also carry a pair of GoreTex over socks in case of in-climate weather. For instance, in light snow/wading puddles they're quite comfortable with GoreTex over socks. Speaking of water. Keen's are supposed to be made to be submerged - at anyrate they sell them in fishing stores. I wear them canoeing and other outside activities where they get wet - no problem. Being sandals, they dry quickly and on the feet. For instance, I periodically toss them in the washing machine and wear them straight out - just walk around the block with damp ones' and they will be dry..
I've hiked miles in Rocky Mountain National Park in these. I wouldn't wear them backpacking - but for day hikes they are fine.
With ankle socks and dockers - I'm good to go for casual lunching and dining - pretty much anywhere. Next year I'll be spending a month in New Zealand - probably just take these and a pair of slip on moccasins for wearing in folks houses.
Heartily recommend: A. Do as the Roman's did - wear sandals as number 1 footwear - you'd be surprised how much it simplifies one life and travel packing ! and, B. buy Keen Newport H2's
I like this particular style because it is washable. Other styles have leather uppers and are not washable. The closed toe is also a great safety feature.
I first bought a pair at an outdoor outfitter in my area. Not only were these shoes $20 more expensive there, I paid sales tax. Glad I found them on the Amazon website.
