We all wish we could live at the beach sometimes, and KEEN sandals are designed for that life. Whether you’re lounging at a resort, hiking through lava fields, or going sea kayaking, KEEN beach shoes help keep your feet cool, comfortable, and protected from the elements — and they’ll hold up trip after trip.
KEEN Beach Hiking Sandals
If your idea of hanging out at the beach involves scrambling over rocks, checking out tide pools, and finding the best vistas, then the Newport sandal is built for you. The waterproof open webbing upper drains water with ease, while the supportive, grippy outsole performs more like a hiking shoe. Simply cinch down the bungee closure and you’re ready to explore everything the beach has to offer.
Specialized variations on the classic Newport sandal include the Hydro, which features a quick-drying water-repellent webbing for water-intensive trips, and the H2, which offers a lighter-weight fit and a razor-siped sole for grip on wet surfaces. Women seeking a more lightweight version should check out the Whisper – it is a streamlined Newport that can handle a variety of terrain with a more feminine silhouette.
KEEN Slip-on Beach Sandals
If your idea of the beach includes a lounge chair, an umbrella, and a refreshing drink from the resort, then a laid-back slip-on beach shoe might be more your speed. KEEN offers a variety of slip-on sandals with our signature supportive sole and durable materials.
The men’s Waimea and women’s Bali offer the toe protection of a shoe with the look of a flip-flop, with quick-drying webbing uppers designed to be flattering and secure. The lightweight sole is grippy and flexible, offering sporty performance in a casual package. The women’s Bali Strap adds security without sacrificing style by adding an ankle strap, perfect for dressing up for a night out, or down for a day at the beach.
The men’s and women’s Kona Flip sandals are our take on technical flip-flops, with a supremely comfortable lightweight molded sole and great traction. Wear these for your whole beach trip or slip them on after a long day on the trail, they’re a treat for your feet whenever you wear them.
For a beach shoe that breaks the mold with street style, look no further than the KEEN UNEEK sandal. Designed with our lightweight supportive sole and two cords, the UNEEK sandal adjusts to your foot as you walk for a truly custom fit. Wear it anywhere you want a secure fit and great ventilation; it’s perfect for exploring the beach, going into town, or any time you want to turn heads.
