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.
The best thing about the H2 is the fit: It's marvelous. I was a little apprehensive, because I have a bunion in the joint of my big left toe, and the front of these is enclosed, unlike a standard sandal. But the fit is great.
These are also better as commuting footwear: I have stubbed a toe a couple of times walking down the aisle of a commuter train, and that cannot happen with these.
I have one concern about the H2, which may be unimportant. The frontspiece is secure to the rest of the shoe sandal with leather, not plastic straps. As I fully intend to wear these in wet conditions, I wonder how the leather is going to hold up with time.
I also discovered, with surprise, that if the soles of the shoe sandals are wet, they are quite slippery and insecure on marble and similar floors, such as the surface at a Bertucci's. I never had that problem with Tevas. I don't understand it, as the bottom of the H2 is not smooth.
If you want something better than regular sandals or flip flops, this is what you need. I've seen people hike 10+ miles in a day with a 30 pound pack without any discomfort while wearing these shoes. My last pair had to be replaced after 8 years. Hoping for another 8 with my new pair.
