Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

I've never found a pair of Keen sandals that fit me well, but I am very happy with LL Bean's Explorer sandals. Very comfortable, very good grip, decent toe protection, non-marking and easier on the wallet than Keens.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

Can somebody compare/contrast the Keen Newport H2 with the Turia and Clearwater CNX? I am looking for a boat and “dinghy” shoe – one that I can wear both on the water and also the beach, walks into town, trails etc. (think Baja)

Chaco Z/1 marine sandal. I got the one with toe strap. Used them on the boat, on the beach, and on mutliple day creek trips. The straps are adjustable and take a while to get just right. They can be send back for repair, resole. I love mine (when forced to wear shoes!).

Keens, definitely. I used to be a Teva gal but when my sis visited last year, she mentioned that Keens might be a better option. I really like the closed toes. Luckily for me, I wear kid's size shoes, and my son has a huge discount at a local sporting goods store, so I was able to snag a pair for $25 (incl tax). I've run around my deck in a total downpour, and the keens have done me well.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

Yes, Keens have very generous kids' sizing. A kid 6 fits my daughter's women's size 7 1/2 perfectly, at a huge discount from the adult pricing.

I live in my chacos whenever there's no snow on the ground, and sometimes when there is. I never thought of having them resoled. Thanks, my current pair is worn down and getting slick. On board I prefer to be barefoot most of the time.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

I switched from Teva to Keen. I love the toe protection and comfort. Newport H2 are great for sailing, kayaking and walking around town.

Ah, that explains why I could wear a keens size 3. I had wondered about that bit. But yes, the kids prices are much more reasonable, even without my son's discount.

They seem to be popular with kayakers and rafters. Just wondering how well they stick.
I have several pairs of Keens -- I have the hiking type of boot/shoe which don't stick. But my Keen Venice H2 and Newport H2 (3 and 4 years old) sandals stick very well. I also have a pair of Keen ankle boots that I've had for years, and they're fabulous for cold weather boating. They're warm and stick well. I don't know what I'll do when they wear out, because I haven't seen the same style for sale recently.

I like the Chaco's, too. I have a pair without the toe strap -- bought them when I lived in Seattle (where socks with sandals won't get you ejected from polite gatherings). They grip the deck very nicely and are also good for walking on the beach, over rocks and into town. Since my last encounter with an unidentified submersed object resulted in several stitches, I also wear them swimming.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

Another vote for the Keen Newport H2's. I used to use Teva's, but found that when wet, the straps stretched out on me...useless on the Hobie. Maybe I didn't have the right model. Regardless, I needed better toe protection...so the Keen's were perfect. Same fit, wet or dry. They have a siped sole for grip on a wet deck. As I recall, the "H2" means it is for wet use. You get a funky foot tan, but your toes will be intact.
