Specifically designed for coastline adventures, Keen's rugged and comfortable Venice H2 Sandals feature a fast-drying (waterproof) polyester webbing upper that's lighter than the leather upper found on Keen's Men's Venice Sandal. Everything else about the design is the same. Inside the polyester webbing is a moisture-wicking Aegis Microbe-Shield SBR lining that (unless you missed the sizing) doesn't usually scrape or chafe the top of your foot after wading through a pond or along a seashore. Keen's Venice H2 Sandals are fully washable and feature Keen's patented toe bumper up front. The non-marking carbon rubber outsole is excellent for guys who want to wear the same footwear throughout the day--even if that's on polished hardwood floors back at home.


  • Washable polyester webbing upper with a moisture-wicking, Aegis Microbe-Shield SBR lining
  • Comfortable V-strap forefoot closure helps secure sandal to your foot
  • Compression molded EVA midsole
  • Comfortable, metatomical low durometer EVA molded footbed
  • Keen patented protective toe bumper
  • High traction, multi-directional non-marking carbon rubber outsole with razor siping
  • Weight: 13.4 oz. (379 g.)

9.5 Keen Venice H2
May 17, 2011

The color is exactly as pictured and the quality seems excellent but they run wide so I returned them. Some people say they run small but the size is true.

Super comfortable sandals!
July 01, 2008

I bought these sandals for my husband to use walking at the beach and around our home. He is a real pain when it comes to buying shoes. But he absolutely loves these sandals!! Super comfortable and good arch support. He had them on all day working in the yard. I would highly recommend them.

Great water sandals/shoes
April 02, 2009

My wife loves, and I mean LOVES, her Keens. At first she loved them because she got them at a big retailer's "garage sale" (I don't know if I'm supposed to tell you the store but their initials are R-E-I) for 5 bucks. Then she started wearing them and REALLY fell in love with them. She has a pair of Arroyos and a pair of the Venice H2. She talked me into buying the Venices, I did, and I love 'em too. They're perfect for those days at the beach and when you'll be in/around water, wading, river rafting, etc. Keen's closed toe is awesome.. And they're sturdy enough and built enough to serve very well on the walk to/from the beach or whatever. We wear ours all the time on vaycay in Phuket, Thailand, and they're just right- cool, closed toes keep your feet safe from stuff out to get them, and yet you can walk right into the water with them and back out and they'll dry nearly instantly. Definitely recommended. (Only hesitation I would have is that depending on the size of your instep/ankle/foot, they might want to slide off in active watersports- if you dump off of a jetski, for example.

Keen quality sandals
June 30, 2009

I wear arch supports for plantar fascitis and have not worn sandals since I got them 2 years ago. I tried on a pair of my brother's keen sandals and they felt great on my feet so I decided to purchase a pair of my own. I bought them right before a family vacation to the Oregon coast where I knew they would come into good use. The first couple of days had me worried because they hurt my arch and the outside of my foot after wearing them all day long. I decided to stick with them, and I am happy to say that they broke in wonderfully well. They don't bother my feet anymore no matter how long I wear them and they have become my go-to footwear. I have only had them for less than a month, but other than the initial breaking-in of the shoe, I don't think that I am going to have any problems with them. I would recommend them to anyone, even people with arch problems or other foot issues. Keen is quality.

Wrong Size
August 19, 2009

Sizing runs small. I've returned them as they didn't fit.

great comfortable everyday sandal
June 15, 2010

purchased these for my son and he loves them. I have them too. these sandals are amazingly comfortable. you can wear them all day and your feet don't even notice. good arch support and breathability. my husband has very wide feet so i bought him the ' newport' sandal and they fit him perfectly. he wears them all the time.

My 1st set of Keens. No problems, very comfortable. Worn in Costa Rica for 3 weeks & no problems or blisters. Felt like I've had them for years. Less side webbing than most, felt cooler.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

Functional and Comfortable
April 19, 2010

Purchased these for my husband who says they are very comfortable and he loves the mobility and versatility of them. I'm ordering a pair for myself!

These fit great!
August 25, 2009

I wear an 11.5 in most shoes. The 11 is a perfect fit. My foot is wide and the shoe is snug but comfy. It feels narrower than the Newport version of the sandal. The color is represented accurately on the website. I hope to get as much wear out of these as all my other Keen sandals.

I bought these for my fiance' for our trip to Hawaii and he loved them! Higly recommend this shoe and this company!

Great shoes
October 10, 2007

Venice H2 is very comfortable and versatile. The footbed is supportive and the sole is durable. My feet are dry and not sweaty at all. Toe protection is great for hiking. I wear it walking around, hiking and getting into water. Venice H2 doesn't have any problem I have with my Teva. I own Teva with velcro strips. Two big problems for me with the Teva 1. velcro strip no longer works (2 pairs have this problem after less than 1 year) 2. Teva sandal makes my feet sweat

great sandal if you wear socks
May 22, 2008

it makes my feet sweaty if i do not wear socks because of the insole and the wet suit material it consists of. I love the toe protection that it offers, but the traditional sandals work better for my feet to stay cool in warm weather!

Excellent sandal for summer
June 24, 2009

Sizes do run about (1) size smaller than what you normally wear, so order (1) size larger. Very comfortable and dries quickly.

Exactly what I wanted.
September 25, 2009

This was exactly what I wanted, perfectly described, fit was exact!!

Had to replace with Newport H2 but liked these
December 27, 2011

The first pair had to be sent back as the glue around the sole was coming apart. Unfotunately they didn't have my size and color for a replacement pair so I had to go with Newport H2s.

Pros: style, Cons: availability

shoe review
January 25, 2008

Love the shoes. Light and airy!

Love the H2's
May 12, 2009

My boyfriend and I both bought Keens this summer. He loves the H2's...a little more airy and open than mine. I had heard they ran a little small, but ours were true to size. We wear them on the sailboat and they never leave a mark...great in the water and out!


A good city sandal
July 12, 2012

These sandals are the best. There was no breaking in period, they were comfortable from day one. I didn't buy them for rugged trails; I actually walk all over hard city streets and sidewalks all day and they give my feet fantastic support (I have plantar faschiitis so have to very careful.)

Keen Venice H2 Sandals
July 16, 2011

Handsome shoes, very comfortable and easy to wear. For me, they were 1/2 size too small; so like prior reviews: ORDER 1/2 SIZE LARGER. Overall happy with purchase.

Great summer shoe
August 25, 2012

I have wore the shoe for 2 months. I thought the price was very reasonable for this quality! I wear a size 10. They fit great. The soles have a good grip and are very comfortable to hike in and use for everyday type shoes. This is my 2nd pair of Keen sandals and I will buy another.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value

Love these sandals!
August 02, 2009

These sandals are comfortable and cool and fit great. Easy to get on and off with no slippage while you're wearing them.

Exactly what I was looking for!
August 19, 2009

The first time out, I went for a two mile walk on the beach and they felt like a glove. In or out of the water, they are light weight, comfortable and durable. At the beach, shopping, driving or at home, they are what I wanted.

Hybrid Sandals!
April 22, 2008

Very comfortable and nice arch support. Bought these cause I heard they were a good sandal to wear after suffering from plantar fasciitis or however you spell it. Like the toe, I work w/ kids so it prevents a lot of painful step-ons compared to open toed sandals. Will wear all summer long I'm sure at the beach on the boat and camping. Wasn't sure about the sz. at first, always in between szs. so the half szs. are great. Think I had to get use to the toe being there, felt a little small at the start.

Great Shoes!
October 14, 2010

I bought these for my husband for his birthday and he loves them! The fit was great and he says they are very comfortable. He wears a size 9.5 or 10 depending on the shoes and the 10 fits him fine. He wore these around Disney World and his feet felt great! He is very happy with his new Keens!

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Better than Newports
July 15, 2010

Much cooler and more comfortable than the Newports. Sizes do run smaller than the Newport.


Great for everything!
May 31, 2009

I love these sandals. I wear them around the house. However, they protect the toes so you can wear them outside and to the beach. I would wear them to work if I could. haha

Keen for the desert
April 27, 2011

These sandals are comfy and cool and ready to protect your toes from the jagged rocks in the desert. Highly recommend for hot climates but not for the beach.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

December 26, 2007

these are great sandals. Great for bush walking, hiking, rock hopping and treking. They also look good for everyday steet life. they dont sweat and are easy to slip on and off

Great camp shoe
September 29, 2009

I carry these while backpacking and use them as a camp shoe. They have a rugged toe which is great while camping and provide a nice relief from my boots!

Highly recommended.
May 08, 2009

Super comfortable right out of the box. Most sandals need a little break in time but not these guys. I want a pair in all my favorite colors!

I love them!!
February 10, 2008

I loved the sandals, I recently had a foot injury and have to wear a brace and Keen's are the only shoes that fit over my brace. I was very excited to find a sandal that would fit. They are a must!!

so comfortable
June 29, 2008

Got this item for my picky husband and he just loved it. Extremely comfortable, cool to your feet and washable. Now he wants more Keen brand footwear for his presents. By the way, I appreciate the great service you provide. Your staff are great on the phone and obviously customer driven. Thank you...

great crossovers
September 25, 2012

Not really a sandal and not a shoe. Very comfortable and the toe box is large enough for me (usually). ALso good protection for the toes. I will use these for fishing the flats and for hiking in warm climates.

Pros: Build quality

ugly comfort
August 08, 2010

My wife says they are so ugly that they're cute. Very comfortable, but do run 1/2 size small. Rubber toe cap prevents stubbing toes on rocks while wading and helps keep out small rocks.

Order slightly larger size
May 04, 2010

Purchased 1/2 to 1 size larger than usual, and they fit well with or without socks. Now my favorite pair of shoes.

Cant be happier!
August 02, 2010

I have worn no shoes besides these since they arrived! I have told about 12 people about altrec and the great savings and they will be ordering these shoes, thanks! Captain Cook

I use this sandal for casual wear, river sports, and lite hiking! Great fit ultra durable. Runs a half size small and will stretch/break in. These are my favorite sandals. I'm on my 3rd pair in in 7yrs, I wear then ever warm day roughly 200 days a year.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: none

Superb long term quality
May 05, 2009

but 2 out of 3 pairs have shown inconsistent fabrication, where the left and right foot needed running in before even. Regardless, I keep only buying this model for its long term comfort, durability, style and value.

Comfy Shoe
September 08, 2009

Great shoe all around. Very comfortable and functional. The only complaint i would have is over time the hard toe cover can be uncomfortable for extended periods.


very comfortable
July 09, 2010

- Just bought a pair for my boyfriend who loves them! Great summer shoe! I've had a pair for a year and worn them kayaking, on amusement park trips with water rides and on walks under 5 miles.

August 18, 2010

I'm a big dude. Look silly in flip flops, always preferred sandals. These are different than any others. They truly are hybrid. Feel like i'm wearing sneakers AND socks, but with all the airation of a sandal - Comfy. I also hate velcro, another reason I dig these!

Perfect fit, ordered fri night rec tues morning @ no charge TKS
February 09, 2010

I don't own stock, but I wish I did! I go through shoes quickly due to hard work and allot of play, but with these on my feet in excess of 15 hours a day I don't worry about replacing foot wear but twice a year that is unheard of for me. thank you for making them easy to obtain. A truly devoted costumer.

Love them
August 09, 2010

Great sandals and they keep me from stubbing my toes. My dog ate my fist pair and got a great deal from Altec on the new ones. Love the black ones over last years beige. Altec was great on quick shipping.

Great arch support. Great traction.
June 08, 2009

I use these sandals daily in water. They have great arch supports, channels in footbed provide good drainage, and the antimicrobial protection prevents odors.

May 23, 2010

Perfect fit, I've used them during my trip in South East Asia and they never let me down. Highly recommended for treks as well as city-sightseeing.

Good Fishing Sandals
May 20, 2009

I use these to wade/fish in my local river. I bought them because they are waterproof and have an enclosed toe bumper. If you've ever slid down a rock in Teva type sandals and had your toe stop you on another one then you will appreciate these sandals. :)

stylish and comfortable
December 21, 2009

purchased these for my husband to replace his teva's says they are VERY comfortable and he really likes the style.

A Very Good Sandel

Undistructable, all-purpose sandals
June 18, 2011

I've had this model of Keens sandals for 5 years, traveled more than 10 countries with them; went kayaking, mountain biking, city walking, hand-glising etc. - they held up great! Important: They never stink!! After 5 years, i had to buy a new pair. The Keen Venice H2 is perfect, the fewer straps allow for better air-flow. The sole is resistant and the protective toe-box is somewhat wide to allow plenty of space for your toes. Thenk you Altrec.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value

As good as everyone says!
October 17, 2009

I'm a scuba diver and bought these for use on the beach and on boats where you can really bang your toes. They are sharp, comfortable and stand up to abuse and don't mind getting wet at all. I'm very pleased with my Keens.

Great Footwear
March 21, 2008

I bought these shoes mainly for kayaking but they are so comfortable that I wear them most of the time. People mentioned that little rocks and sand get in them. Some does, but it washes out without taking them off. These sandals work very well for me!

March 30, 2009

Comfort and quality of H2 Keen was High, but so was price. Worked well in rock areas around ocean.
