KEEN sandals-4

Summer’s just a short couple of weeks away and we’re looking forward to sandy beaches and urban trails around the city.

KEEN has revamped the Newport H2, a hybrid water sandal/hiker that helped propel the Portland, Oregon-based outwear company into a globally-recognized leader in comfortable footwear. For women, the Astoria West Sandal takes its design from the Newport but adds a heel lift and an elasticized band at the back of the ankle for added stability.

Men’s Newport H2

Back 2003, KEEN’s founders asked the question, “Can a sandal protect your toes?” More specifically, can it protect you when you’re out on a sailboat (a place not particularly friendly to vulnerable toes)? And so the Newport H2 was born.

The Newport H2’s support, breathability and functionality go hand in hand to make this one of the most popular models in the collection.

The compression-molded EVA midsole and non-marking, high-traction rubber outsole help to improve grip when wet.
