Look for Vibram

I am guessing you need traction over the dreaded northern black lichen. Its like walking on vaseline when wet.
I have Keen Newports and they are marginal on lichen. I switched to Merrell watershoes. I have older Maipos that have Vibram soles.
The same thing that allows hikers to adhere to slippery granite shelves when wet ought to work for you.
Merrell does have a Vibram soled Keen Newport style sandal.
