Size and fit

KEEN’s Newport Eco caters to male and female hikers. It is available in standard (medium) width only and comes in regular sizes. It reasonably runs true to size. It has a quick-to-adjust lacing system which permits customization of fit.

Outsole

The outsole of the Newport Eco is a non-marking rubber outsole (infused with upcycled rice husk). It has multidirectional lugs and is razor-siped. This design enhances the sole’s grip on most types of ground surfaces.

Midsole

To facilitate a cushioned ride and promote a cozy feel, this hiking sandal from KEEN wears a compression-molded EVA midsole. Atop this element is a metatomical footbed which is also made of molded EVA. The development of odor is prevented thanks to the incorporation of Cleansport NXT.

Upper

The Newport Eco from KEEN uses a polyester webbing made of recycled P.E.T. It has a quick-dry lining which delivers comfort on the trails, whether wet or dry. Its side panels are made of durable leather which is salt resistant.

Facilitating an easy on and off are its secure fit lace capture system and pull tabs at the heel and tongue. The former includes a single elastic cord with a plastic lock.
