Keen Newport Leather Hiking Sandals for Men - Bison Brown
Best sandal ever
Keen makes sandals that can take whatever you throw at them. I ordered my first pair while I was working in Baghdad and now wear them both wade fishing and occasionaly to church here in Florida. From 140 degrees on the ground in the desert to salt marshes to outdoor Sunday services this sandal has served me well. I bought the kids version of these for my son and together we've used these sandals for fishing, church, out on the town in Orlando and in Las Vegas, beach shoes, and pool shoes.
Nothing beats a pair of Keens.

Very nice multi-purpose shoe.
I have had my Newports for two years and have worm them constantly. I use them from everything from fishing, hiking, and to wear around town. I love the toe bumpers while in a boat as it allows for the protection of a tennis show with the breathability and comfort of a sandal. Like other reviews mention, if you buy online it might be wise to try them on first. A proper fit is a must for experiencing the full potential of this shoe.
The only reason these shoes got four stars is for the minor fact that while walking, on occasion I have got small pebbles inside the shoe and in order to remove them the shoe itself must be removed. Still, it is not a big deal but be aware that it will sometimes happen. Happy treading.

My fave shoe, bar none
I've had my first pair since summer of '05. A buddy recommended them while on a fishing trip to BC. Thought they looked kinda goofy, but most really comfortable shoes have their "quirks". It's almost 3 years later, and I wear them every time I can. Only snow and the necessity for dress shoes keeps 'em off my feet. My wife got me a new pair, but I'm trying to see if I can just drive these into the ground. The only evidence of wear is the soles, and they aren't that worn. I've had hiking boots that weren't this durable, and not nearly as comfy!!!

The best out there!
No flat tires with these. I fish some muddy KS lakes/walk dams etc. I am 6ft 250lb. I can destroy a pair of knock offs in a day. I have them on now. If all you want to do is hike in these they will last you forever. I live in them and have not been able to break them yet! It's getting close to 2 years now. Can't wait to get a new pair! Don't need to. Good pair of kicks! Need to add that they DO NOT let small rocks in at ALL! If you wear them as much as I do you get the benifit of cool tiger stripe tan lines on your feet. Enjoy!
