I also like these because they could be worn with pants at a semi formal type gathering they being leather they go nice with many different styles. Also these are pretty warm and could be worn during the Fall into early winter but that all depends on your geographic location in the world obviously I wouldn't recommend this to people in the upper northern latitudes but I'm in western NC where we have more mild winters so ultimately it's up to your tolerance for cold. That concludes my review of the Keen Newport Sandal hybrid. I hope I managed to answer a lot of the basic questions people thinking of buying usually have. Happy hunting.
Either way, I find it perfect for travel as its multi-purpose flexibility allows me to not have to pack any other shoes.
I can wear it to the airport, even when it is cold/snow outside (I wear socks), wear them for hiking at my destinations as they are rugged yet light, handle stepping over sharp rocks well, the feet are well protected and do not move around, and they are very comfortable, I wear them for horseback riding, for atv riding, for rock climbing, for beach rock/reef explorations, and to go out at night (with jeans/short) and still look decent.
The only thing these may not work well with is if you have to go to a fancy place that requires a dress jacket and does not allow jeans/shorts, though they do look fine if you get the neutral/dark colors, not sure if they'd allow you in the place with "sandals"... but I never go to such places anyways thus these fit the bill perfectly. Or, I would not wear these if I was on some high intensity situation (such as paintballing in the woods, or some sort of law enforcement/military deployment, because if you are running off trail and running through vegetation stepping on loose sticks and loose rocks, a stick can easily go through one of the exposed holes or heel openings and really damage you; also no ankle protection, but to be fair, if you are in that situation I'd expect full AR 670-1 compliant army style boots)
I also only pack a pair of thin light flip-flops (like the teva mush) and wear these most of the time while on my trips. Flip flops for super beachy feel and don't need much foot protection; otherwise, these are it.
I am on my second pair. My first pair was bought 13 years ago, close to when the company first started and no one knew them. Check out the pics. They've lasted plenty of trips, hikes, you name it. These were the black "plastic" original newports in black. The plastic started to crack around the base (after 13 years of use) thus I ordered these which are leather as I don't want to risk having the black ones rip completely while I am on a trip. No leather back then either.
- super comfortable
- breaths better than any shoe (lots of holes)
- foot is well protected on its most crucial points
- relatively lightweight
- can tighten them or wear them loose
- last very long time and remain very comfortable (be careful with the newport H2 which have the sawn sides; that area apparently gets a lot of wear and the sewing breaks/wears out)
- some people think they look weird, but if you don't care about what people think, then this is a moot point
- may not be allowed in fancy dressed places
SIZE: I usually wear a 10.5 and as recommended I ordered the 11 - they fit extremely well. My only minor qualm is that I would prefer it if the shock cord laces were just a touch shorter but I just tuck the extra in under the laces after I have tightened them - no big deal!
COLOR: I really wanted the Bison color of these but at the time the White Pepper color was on sale for $57!! I couldn't pass it up. I was worried I wouldn't like the color but there was free returns so I gave it a shot. It turns out the color is quite a bit different from the Amazon pictures and I LOVE IT! Check out my picture to see. They're definitely more brown and not as light or tan as I thought they would be!
In the summer if I am not wearing my steel toes (also Keen and I love them!) then I am in flip flops or barefoot for everything else. My feet just get too hot for sneakers. I'll be honest and say I push the limit on when I should (safely) be wearing flip flops so I really needed a little more. These are the perfect compromise. They are well ventilated and my feet don't get hot but they also give me a little better traction and toe protection. The fact they are water friendly is an added bonus!
These seem really well made and I look forward to having them a long time. I will keep this review updated if anything changes with the durability.
Morocco was a Class 2 scramble to 7000+ feet and a Class 1 to the same altitude. I chose not to haul my Keen hiking boots along on a three week trip for two hikes and the Newports did not disappoint.
