KEEN’s Latest Newport H2 Sandals Are Designed Entirely by You
by Mike Richard | October, 2013
We’ve been digging KEEN’s entire lineup of sandals since … well since the idea of Vagabondish.com was barely a hopeful glimmer in my eye. My Newport H2 watershoes are often the only pair that I pack (including on extended trips to Alaska and Africa). They’re versatile, durable, packable and the rugged design screams “I’M AN ADVENTURE TRAVELER!”
Naturally the only way KEEN saw to one-up themselves was to allow customers to design their own kicks. And so it is with their latest custom sandal builder where you can craft your own one-of-a-kind sandals and have them on your doorstep in about three weeks.
Product details and tech specs remain the same:
… the razor sipped outsole and 3mm lugs provide excellent traction. This KEEN has washable polyester webbing upper and patented toe protection to let you follow any path, whether on rivers or trails.
- Compression molded EVA midsole
- Hydrophobic mesh lining
- Metatomical EVA footbed
- Multi directional lug pattern for increased traction
- Non-marking rubber outsole with razor siping
- Patented toe protection
- Secure fit lace capture system
… the only thing that’s changed is the ability to customize. It’s been barely a week but Mrs. Vagabondish is loving her own personal pair (complete with Punky Brewster-inspired style):
Pricing + Availability
Available now in a TON of colors and styles (more than 80 colors and 65 million possible color combinations to be exact) for $130 USD directly from KEEN Footwear.
