I love this sandal. I own several pairs of Keens including Newports (which are good for hiking through numerous water crossing but will rub my little toe to a blister). The Venice H2 are my all around favorites. The style is more feminine so they look good with hiking shorts or even a dress. Super comfy and secure if you are doing a good bit of walking. Dry quickly and the strap angle is much more friendly to my foot than my Newports, I never get a blister! I just wish they would bring back the fun colors especially the multi-stripe ones as I am ready for a new pair!!
