So, like many people, I’ve had a hard time trying to find good sandals and flip-flops that provide enough cushion and support to keep my knees, ankles, hips and back happy. After using the Keen Newport Sandals for the past year, I can say undoubtedly, I have found them.
The thing that blew me away about the Keen Newport Sandals was, that right out of the box, they fit perfectly with no rubbing or hot spots. That rarely happens for me –even with regular shoes.
I bought mine for an 11 day trip to Walt Disney World. Naturally, I thought with all the open strapping, there would be one spot, somewhere that would cause some sort of chaffing. Well, Keen’s precise attention to detail proved me completely wrong. I was a true believer from then on, and purchased them for the whole family!
They have only given me some trouble on hiking nature trails. I had to stop numerous times to take off my sandal to remove sticks, twigs and stones.
The Newports are comfortable for all-day adventures and they are obviously at home in wet conditions. Whether wet or dry, the Keen Newport Sandals are now my sandals of choice. They are not perfect… I do wish they had a little higher back strap or had a slightly taller arch support. But, I can wear these all day and never feel fatigue.
As an added bonus, the anti-microbial insole prevents the Keen’s from smelling like my junior high school locker–YES!.....Keen thought of everything.
I dig the all-terrain ability of the Newports, the grippy soles, comfortable feel right out of the box and the super-protective trademark Keen toe-guards.
A definate must have!
