The old-school design of the Newport has stood the test of time—not just for the kiddos, but for moms and dads too. The rubberized toe box is a genius idea for protecting your kids’ piggies from stubbing on rocks and logs on all their water-filled adventures, and the webbing uppers allow for quick-drying breathability. After years of using these shoes in our family, I can only come up with one complaint: They sure do stink after a while. Luckily, the entire shoe is machine-washable.
