Excellent out of the box. Have yet to "trail test" these, but solid feel and supportive, should do just fine! Dry quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dwatson4 Excellent closed-toe sandals
I do not wear sandals. With that said, I decided to try these Keen closed-toe sandals as the warm temperatures of summer is upon us. What a pleasant surprise for me. Very comfortable and I feel sure footed when wearing them. The reviews on the LL Bean website were most helpful in helping me make this decision to purchase the Keen sandals. Around the house, I wear them in place of slippers. Outdoors, they are comfortable and provide good support. I highly recommend these sandals; especially, if you are like me and reluctant to wear this type of shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobOIllinois Really comfortable
I was looking for a sandal that would protect my toes but still give me the feel of regular sandals. I found the ideal pair at LL Bean with the Keen Newports. They really feel great on my feet and fit well, although I did have to go a half size bigger ( 91/2 to 10). But who cares, they fit great !!

Very comfortable and good looking. Got rained on the first day, dried up nicely.
I bought these for my husband who doesn't like to wear sandals, but he found these very comfortable. We ordered a 1/2 size up and they fir great.

by ILovestheBean Great for hiking
I have been wearing my sandals for over a year. I just wore them on a 5 day hike on the Tour de Mont Blanc. They worked great!
Other hikers were wearing heavy Goretex boots and suffering with blisters in 90 degree heat. I was cool and comfortable.
When it rained, my sandals dried out within the day. I just had to change to dry socks.
I recommend these sandals highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by activeyenta good quality, comfortable walking sandals
I ordered these for my husband and, as advised, I ordered up 1/2 size, and they fit just fine. He uses a shoehorn to get them on, with no problem. Great fit and comfort with or without socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldKnees Feels SOOO GOOD
The Keen original Newport sandal is just about the most comfortable sandal /open shoe made. I like my sandals to run a little wider so that I can wear them with socks in the fall. I order the men's Newport 1 1/2 sizes smaller than my normal women's size and they fit perfectly!! This is the ONLY foot wear in which I don't need to use orthotics becasue the original Newports have great and comfortable arch support. Nice wide toe box for plenty of wiggle room for the toes.My original Newports lasted about 10 years so I definitely got my money's worth from them. Because these are leather, I'm expecting another pair of long-lived sandals. For my money, the original Newport is definitely the best product made by Keen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanonut Best sandals ever?
I love these guys. I normally need an orthotic in my hikers when I take long walks but these sandals do fine without one. In my corner of the south it gets awfully and soggy in the summertime, You need all the breaks you can get so keeping your feet cool and comfortable is the secret to being able to take a nice summer walk. I hate to even call these sandals since they wear so much like shoes. Although they're listed as waterproof, I won't tempt fate and wear them at times I know I'll be in and near the water but as for getting caught in an occasional surprise thunderstorm, they'll do just fine. I love mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chicycler 2nd set of Keens
After wearing out the insides of my old Keen outdoor sandals I looked for my replacement pair. I selected these Newports after trying many other brands included specialized orthopedic sandals. None were more comfortable than the Keen Newport. At first there was some tightness in the toes but the sandal fits well once the blackstrap is stretched a little bit through normal wear. Very pleased with the purchase

Rated 1 out of 5 by RickofRamona The shoes appeared sturdy and well made
but it was impossible to push my foot inside due to a tight elastic at the bridge of my foot. I returned the sandals which costs $6.75 to do.
