Keen shoes run a half size small. Most customers size up for an appropriate fit. To the eye the item appears to be wide but the width is actual a B width.
Keen Sizing Chart
4.9 out of 5
1/2 size to small
June 28, 2011
I purchased the Newport sandals for my Alaska cruise but they were one half size to small when they arrived. I returned them and am placing an order for the correct size. Although I was unable to wear them for my cruise I was impressed with the quality. I don't normally spend that much on casual wear sandals but I believe they will last long enough to be worth the cost. The return policy seemed to work flawlessly.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: Cost
Very versatile shoe
June 03, 2006
Very comfortable shoe that works great with shorts, jeans, capris - whatever! A little on the "warm" side as far as sandals go, but great for all terrain, such as hiking, walking, etc. These shoes also get lots of compliments on their appearance - everyone asks where they can get a pair!
I love all of my keen sandals!
August 20, 2009
I love these sandals so much, that I keep buying them in different colors. Almost every time I'm out shopping or on a canoe trip or getting my hair cut or whatever, somebody comments positively on my shoes.
July 26, 2006
Good for walking and Very comfortable although sometimes my feet get really sweaty in them.
Relief from arch pain, finally!
April 06, 2007
I've had recurring pain in my left foot and have fiddled with various shoes and inserts (Superfeet,stability shoes, cushioned shoes...). I got these for a trip to Disney World and the second I tried them on, my feet felt great. I tried Chacos first, also, but the arch didn't line up with mine. These fit perfectly on a beat-up arch, size 8B, with a previously broken toe. No more flip-flops for me!
great shoes - very comfortable
July 13, 2009
i purchased the next size up and they fit perfectly. I will buy more of these great shoes.....
May 28, 2006
All Keen shoes are great especially the sandals because they can go from shopping at the Mall to hiking in the outdoors. I l They also are very comfortable and my feet do not sweat in them. I also like the Altrec website and service. Very prompt and nformative about your order.
May 24, 2010
Took these on vacation and loved them. I wore them the whole time. They were true to size and a great arch support.
September 03, 2010
I really like the Keen Newport sandals. They are dressy enough to wear to work and are so comfortable. The size was right on and I have a wide foot and these fit perfectly.
The best shoe for every casual event.
September 14, 2008
Keen's are the best all around shoe. No breaking them in and so easy to care for. Just toss them in the washing machine and let them air dry and away you go.
January 12, 2010
Lots of people raved about these so I had to try for myself...They were right ...wonderfully comfortable!!!!!!
Now I know why they're so popular!
October 27, 2006
I'd seen so many people wearing these and wondered what all the hype was about. A family member bought a pair of the sandals and I tried one on: needless to say I ordered a pair the next day. Very comfortable with no break in needed. I have high arches and they feel good.
Awesome Awesome Sandals
September 17, 2008
My first pair of Keen's were the Newport....Love em....I will only wear Keen shoes from now on.
Great Comfort - BEST addition to my wardrobe this summer
August 07, 2008
These shoes are the BEST addition to my wardrobe this summer. They are comfortable, keep your feet cool and your toes safe. You can dress them up for an evening out on the town, or dress them down. Great for cookouts, the ballpark, hiking with your dog or sightseeing the big city.
Great Sandals for the Beach
April 10, 2010
This is my second pair of Keen's. Great fit and sturdy for long lasting use. The size DOES run a half small.
June 03, 2007
This is a GREAT shoe. They are so comfortable! They fit like a glove. They are rugged enough to be safe for any activity. I wear them almost everytime I dress casual.
Excellent sandals,very comfortable
May 29, 2006
I have Keen shoes that I love, so I thought I would try their sandals. Score! I love them too.
August 25, 2006
These sandals are very comfortable and well worth the money. Also look real good. Can wear them all day whether working or playing.
August 30, 2008
I do a lot of water activities and these fit the bill perfectly. Especially when I go water rafting. They fit my feet as though they were made just for me.
June 18, 2010
I had bought a pair of H2 Newport keens many years ago and these Newport keens are awesome just like my old ones. I did have to break them in a little and they run smaller than the pair I purchased 7 years ago.
Keen Newport sandals, women
April 01, 2013
The only reason I didn't give these sandals an "excellent" review is that I haven't really tested them yet. I'm taking them to Hawaii, where we'll be walking and hiking a lot. The good news: I have "difficult feet"--bunions, narrow, hammer toes, bony, etc..--and these sandals seemed to fit amazingly well, first time I tried them. They were very comfortable, snug and close-fitting without being tight or rubbing in any way, felt solid and strong on my feet. I had no idea you really could *walk* or *hike" in sandals, but it seems very likely true with these. As I say, the real test hasn't come--ask me in a month--but I was astonished that these galumphing sandals really promised to live up to the hype. They ain't exactly pretty, but if they behave as they have while I've been "practice"-wearing them (too cold here in Maine to wear them outdoors, yet), this manufacturer will have a loyal and repeat customer!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, comfortable
I love these shoes
August 05, 2006
I bought a 1/2 size larger than my regular size and it was the right fit for me. I wear it in all of my outdoor activities now and I just love it.
Love my Keen Newport's
October 09, 2006
I discovered Keen's about 6 months ago. I have had a lot of problems with my feet. With these Keen's I don't even need my inserts. This is the best my feet have been in 10 years. I also have a problem finding my size and your company seems to stock this size. I could not even find a pair in the town I live. I will definately use your company again.
Great for walking!
April 14, 2010
I received my sandals last week and have worn them several times - rain and shine. They need no "wearing in" time. I find them to fit true to size. I can't wait to wear them on vacation. Will certainly buy again.
July 05, 2008
My husband just recently bought me a pair and they are amazing. I wear them everywhere. They are the most comfortable shoes. They work well at the lake when we go boating and hiking.
Pretty darn good!
September 24, 2006
I think these are good shoes. It took me awhile to get used to them, but they are very comfortable.
September 01, 2008
I bought a size 9 in a store and they were perfect. I wore them every day until they wore out. I ordered a 9 and it was too small. Had to go up to a 9 1/2. Hard to tell what size you need, but they are still the most comfortable sandal I've ever worn, so it's worth it.
June 23, 2006
I've been having foot problems. Someone suggested Keen shoes. Tried the Newports. Been wearing them for a week and my foot feels better. The Newports run true to size. The Venice H2 runs small. Toes tough end.
July 11, 2012
I recieved the sandals last week. Really like the color and look and the feel of these. My husband and son both own a pair and live in them. I tried them on but they were really snug. I recommend getting a half size larger than what you would normally buy. I returned the pair I recieved and will be reordering them a half size larger.
Comfort and style
June 11, 2008
I love them. They are as good as I expected. I can't wait to travel allover Italy with them. My feet are going to feel so good.
June 23, 2009
This is the second pair of Keens I bought. In fact around the same time that I purchased these I bought a pair of MBTs and J-41s. I returned both of the other brands. I am looking for sandals for a trip to Disneyland in July. I need shoes that are comfortable, sturdy, and shoes that can get wet then still walk around for the rest of the day (Anyone who has been Disneyland knows what I am talking about). I am wearing this sandal everywhere and am very pleased so far.
My Favorite shoe EVER!!
May 25, 2009
Love these Keens- arrived promptly too! SUPER comfort, flexibility & nice looking, great for around the house, taking a walk, or out & about. Ordering another pair soon :-) Oh but DO order a half size UP, I usually wear a 7.5 and got an 8 they fit perfect.
fantastic, you must have a pair
September 23, 2007
I have been boater for many years and this is my second pair of Keen. I now use them for boating, hiking and in our move to Ca now for swimming pool shoes. shopping shoes they are the most comfortable shoes you can wear them all day. First pair lased three years and in fact I still wear them just like the newer colors for modern. My husband just bought a men's pair and he feels the same way as I do. We get so many compliments on them.
Best Sandal Ever Purchased
November 08, 2011
I own a pair of Keen Newport that have lasted me for many years. These are a replacement since I have practically worn out my other shoes having worn them in the jungle, ocean, river, desert and in all kinds of environments. These are the best sandals I've ever owned, comfortable, durable and exceptionally versatile. Can't say enough good things about these sandals.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Great shoe value
January 29, 2011
The Newport is a grat shoe for design and comfort. As indicated in several reviews these do run a half size small. The back strap rubs if you don't get the right size. Everything else about the shoe including quality is great.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: shoe size
July 07, 2009
After watching my husband love his Newports for several years, I finally got a pair and am so pleased. I wore them the first time on a slippery half mile evening hike down to Cumberland Falls, KY, and then back up again. Comfort, control and no rubbing/fit issues. I always wear size 10 Keens, and usually 9.5 in other brands. Great shoes, too; I have KEEN hiking shoes and Mary Janes.
Great- Great Shoes. Wonderful company to do busy with.
May 29, 2006
A really comfortable shoe.I would recommend them to anyone.
Wonderful comfortable sandal!
April 25, 2010
As with every Keen shoe I have purchased, this sandal is extremely comfortable and supportive. I usually have to order Keens in a half size larger, which was also true for the Newport sandal. Altrec has a great selection of Keens with good prices. As usual shipping was prompt.
A very comfortable shoe!
January 20, 2008
As soon as I put them on I loved the fit. I have arch problems and I felt completely supported and comfortable. I will definitely purchase Keen again. For sizing I usually wear 6 or 6.5 depending on the brand. The Keen 6.5 was perfect, I didn't need to go to a 7.
September 13, 2012
I think this must be my 13th pair of Keen Newport saddles. Obviously, I like everything about them , the fit, the waterproofness, the durability and the style. I would like,however, to see some different colors
August 18, 2009
Very comfy - 2nd pair I own and am about to order my 3rd...I wear them with every outfit. I can't say enough about how much I love my Keens. I have friends that have Keens because they have tried mine on and LOVE THEM!!!!! Can't go wrong with this sandal.
I love my keens!!
January 28, 2010
These shoes are amazing!! They run a bit small, but I love them!!!
Love, Love, Love them
May 20, 2007
These are great. The shoes are really versatile and comfortable shoes. I love to wear them through the airport and then on to the trail or street.
February 21, 2009
love these keens! however, i'm finding that i have to order a half size larger as the newer keens run small, despite the fact that ordered the same make and model. but once i ordered the size larger, the fit was still the same great keen fit
May 26, 2006
Love these sandals! Perfect for everyday wear, great for going in and out of water. I went out in these during a rain storm and ended up walking through big puddles. They dried out really fast!
Love my Newports!
August 26, 2008
These are very comfortable shoes and I wish I'd gotten them years ago. I normally wear a size 9 in a standard width, but needed a 9 1/2. It seems they run about a half size small. If my feet were any wider, I think these would be a little too tight in the width. The color I got was Shitake/Baroque Rose. I like the neutral brown color and the leather is nice looking and soft. The little pink accents make the standard brown which could look rather masculine, more feminine and cute.
LOVE my Keen Sandals!
September 01, 2009
These are the fourth pair of Keen shoes that I own and once more I am extremely happy with them. So comfortable, that I can wear them all day chasing after my two toddlers! I even have some for my three year old and he loves his!
Fantastic Alternative to my
August 03, 2008
Wow! I just completed a 2 mile walk with my new Keen Newport sandals and my toes don't hurt. I have a problem with every women's athletic shoe I have ever purchased - the toe box, even when it is rounded, squishes my toes. I have narrow feet so buying a wide shoe is not a solution. Nor is an open toe sandal when doing a lot of up and down hills. With these sandals I can actually wiggle my toes. I mentioned to my son that I was thinking about trying a men's shoe, when he suggested I try the Keen sandals. He is an avid mountain trail hiker and just about lives in his sandals. I ordered the Newport sandals and they arrived the very next day! Great service. Thanks for the fit recommendation to buy a half-size up - absolutely perfect fit with the 8.5.
Yep, that's a Keen!
June 05, 2010
This is one of those shoes that you take out the box, put them on and say, "Ahhh". My feet didn't want to take them off. I got the Stone Gray/Aegean Blue color -- like it a lot better in person than in the photo. Width is perfect.
May 20, 2011
I bought these sandals and love them. The only season I don't wear them is the winter, and my feet are happy as can be during the summertime. The only issue is the dirt that gets trapped in the sandals...which is an issue for all sandals, but really isn't too much of a problem since I just wash them in the washing machine after the season. So all in all, I would buy them again, but maybe a larger size so I can wear them with socks during the colder seasons.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
My first pair of Keens--but definitely not my last!
September 05, 2006
Recommended by friends, finally tried them and I love them. Plan to add more styles to my wardrobe. Also love dealing with Altrec--great service and products.
May 31, 2006
This is my eighth pair of Keen footwear, third pair of the Newport sandal. Keen are the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn...I'm a true believer. I have a somewhat wide foot and find these to be extremely comfortable. The arch support in Keen is excellent, as well. What I like best about this new style/color is the texture of the leather. The color is closer to a "suntan" once you're sporting one, and the pinholes in the leather seem to make it even softer. Overall it's a great shoe...the whole line is - at least every one I've ever bought.
Wow - so comfy
September 15, 2006
We did a lot of walking during our recent trip to Thailand and Cambodia. I ordered my Keen Newport sandals 1 size larger than my regular size and wow, they were so comfy. The sandals were really great even when it was raining and the road was muddy and wet.
Best shoes ever for camping.
January 03, 2010
Had to get these, everyone at our campsite has them to hike and hang out in, so I was jealous. They run a tad small, but still got my regular size, as I think the leather will stretch out a bit.
Wear them everywhere!
July 08, 2006
These are awesome sandals. I've worn them for everything from wilderness canoeing to traveling to going out on the town. I get many compliments on them. For adventuring, they are wonderful for protecting your toes. Buy them! I found these to run true to size.
June 05, 2007
This sandal is comfortable day one and offers remarkable support given its light weight. Great for walking and it looks good on the foot
September 27, 2006
I recently purchased these shoes to visit Block Island, R.I. I only took one pair of shoes and the Newport was IT. Waiting for a partial knee replacement, two recently sprained ankles and these shoes helped my balance (obviously I am clumsy) and gave me the support and stability I needed
Great Keen Sandals for Rugged Activity
May 20, 2007
Wore these to the Actun Tuniichil Muknal Caves and was able to hike on dry and wet rock surfaces and dredge around in waist high level waters with a great deal of security. The construction of these sandals allowed me to hike in different terrain but more importantly protected my toes and feet. The only negative is that the heel straps gave me blisters which surprised me when I bought the size that I would normally wear for all shoes. Perhaps I needed to break them in first....not sure?
Very comfortable shoe
December 15, 2010
I just purchased these keens for my wife and she loves them. I have had a pair for the last year and worn them in all conditions hiking, saltwater, freshwater, and have had nothing but good things to say. I hand wash them from time to time in the shower and have no problems with odor. Overall, I love the shoe and my wife already enjoys hers.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Perfect outdoor shoe
September 01, 2011
I love these shoes, I tried many other brands and kept getting blisters in various areas, until I tried the Newport. I have hiked, rafted, camped, boated, you name it in them this summer and they are sooo comfortable! No blisters, no breakin period. They fit a little small so I got a half size bigger.Pros: Great design, comfort, versatility
A Summer Essential
June 12, 2009
The advice to order 1/2 size larger was right on-they fit perfect. Comfy, yet very good support for a sandal. Can't wait until the weather warms up here in the U.P. so I can go on another adventure with Keens on my feet.
My favorite shoes
August 09, 2010
I have had these for five years now and am just now reviewing - they are still holding up like new. I even wear them in the winter with wool socks. They have been in fresh water, mud, salt water, sand, and they still don't smell bad. I have heard people normally buy a half size larger than their normal size, but I bought my normal size and it fits perfectly.
Love These Shoes!!!
April 05, 2011
This pair of Newport Sandals is an addition to my Keen shoe collection! I absolutely loved my Newport H2 sandals and decided that another pair was in order. The fit is great and the comfort level is superior - even on my foot that has arthritis. I am a daycare provider who spends many hours on my feet each day and these shoes are so great! I also am able to walk my dog after a long day on my feet without out any discomfort. Like the H2 style these are waterproof - even with the leather which means they clean up nicely. If you have never tried them you are missing out on a wonderful shoe!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Cons: Cost
great comfortable sandals
September 02, 2006
I love them! We're are taking a vacation to Ireland and these will be what I wear. I may take another pair of sandals but I doubt it. They are very comfortable and fit great. THank you for such a wonderful product. I will seriously consider buying another pair.
I loved it!
July 11, 2007
I bought this shoe to go hiking in Costa Rica. I've never spent this much EVER on a shoe - not even close. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!! My feet didn't hurt at all and I wore them everywhere for 11 days! Worth every penny! I will continue to wear these shoes until they fall apart and then I'll be buying a replacement pair - they can't be beat!
September 26, 2006
This is probably the most comfortable shoe my foot has ever experienced!
So very nice
November 03, 2009
I had purchased these sandals for summer and they went with everything I wore. I did hiking in them and a lot of walking. I love Keen shoes and am happy I bought these sandals.
December 25, 2006
while cruising,I wore my shoes on ashore tour adventures. They worked out great!
June 30, 2008
I read the reviews carefully, so ordered a half size larger than usual, which was absolutely right. The shoes are great--in two weeks they've been to Boston (I like to move fast when I travel) and on four hikes, one rugged. As with all open shoes, they pick up small pebbles if you're on gravelly trail. But otherwise, they protect your feet wonderfully and are very comfortable.
Great arch support
April 26, 2010
I ordered my normal size of 6 1/2 since these are sandals and they fit just perfect. They are very comfortable with good arch support.
July 26, 2010
love them, to bad they sell out so fast.
Absolutely the best!
August 27, 2006
I have never had more comfortable footwear. I don't know how I will wear any other shoe as they are the best. This is from someone with back and knee problems. I applaud the Keen designers that came up with this sandal.
May 26, 2006
Purchased for my wife after I enjoyed mine so much. She has a tough to fit foot, but the Newports are great, especially with their wide adjustment range. These have become her "go to" shoes of choice.
Great everday shoe
December 06, 2010
This is a great shoe to wear everyday in warm weather. They do make my feet smell a little though. I do not wear them in water. Very comfortable.Pros: Great design
July 13, 2011
best quality sandals. i love them they are comfortable. Love buying from this company, they are good to me . great value and recomend for family and friends to buy this product.Pros: Build quality
My most comfortable sandals!
August 21, 2012
When I first got these, I thought they felt a bit firm and wasn't too sure about them. But after breaking them in for about a week, they were super comfortable. In fact, they are now my favorite, most comfortable sandals. The toe protection is great since I've injured three of my toes in the past. I find them true to size. They seem like they will last for many years, and I've had good results with Keen shoes in the past. Definitely recommended.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
May 19, 2011
I have two pairs of Newport H2s and too many other Keens to count. These share the same level of quality as other Keens, but they're just not as comfortable as the H2s.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
November 09, 2012
I wear my Keen Newport sandals 360-days per year. In winter, I just add socks to the ensemble. Yes, I live in the Pacific Northwest, so we have buckets of rain during winter instead of mounds of snow. I walk my dogs 5-times per day and the Keen's are perfect to slip on for our walks. I also wear the sandals for hiking, shopping, etc. They are extremely comfortable with the molded foodbed and ability to adjust the fit because of the flexible lacing. They're also incredibly easy to clean; just throw in the wash with some towels (don't use Downey) and air dry. My whole family wears Keens. The leather NEVER wears out, but the soles wear down after about 1 year, which is pretty good considering the amount of miles I put on them. Another plus is the protection you get for the toes. The Newport's truely feel like an extension of your foot. I hope they never stop making these.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Just want you to know how great your service is!!!!
August 28, 2006
I recently purchased some Keen sandals from your company and would like to share my awesome experience with you. Your staff couldn't have been more helpful - and to boot no shipping costs!!! How great was that? I will definately purchase more from your company. Thank you! It was a pleasure to do business with you.
needed to order one size up
