I bought these shoes for my husband as work shoes. He works in an industrial bakery (12 hour shifts). He definitely needs a durable, comfortable shoe and he puts this one to the test every shift. I ordered him a full size up. He's a 13 and I got him a 14. He has no complaints about the size or fit at all. He's had no problems with blisters and hasn't had to put in extra inserts like with the other shoes he's tried. They are comfortable at the end of his shift and he doesn't complain about his knees bothering him anymore. They are non-slip, which is a plus. He's had them since December and they have held up very well. I highly recommend them. They were well worth the money we spent. Zappos service is excellent as usual!

My husband and I both have 7 pairs of Keens between the 2 of us, and this pair of Utility Keens were the first Utility pair he tried. He doesn't like them, and says they're very stiff and the soles feel too hard. It's too bad because they look really nice, but comfort is key. We'll be returning them for regular non-utility Keens.

Love my comfy Keen shoes and I love Zappos fast shipping and easy returns. These shoes help my feet and back survive the workday on my feet.

Hands down the best shoes I have ever purchased for work. Those who work in the restaurant biz know that shoes are very important. Slip resistant and hugs my feet. Comfortable from the very first day. Won't wear anything else from now on and am considering another pair of Keens for outside of work, too.

This is by far the most comfortable work shoe I have ever owned. I am on my feet 6-10 hours per day and my feet stay comfortable all day long wearing my new Keen shoes. Thank you Keen.

Great shoe for food service! Firm, crisp strike with all day cushion. Definitely order from Euro size chart. Will be a little wide in toe box, but that gives nice stability in tight turning areas. I wear this with both shorts and pants and pound doubles in comfort. Also my left arch/fasciitis has improved since wearing this Keen. I'm picky about footwear and love this shoe.

Very comfortable, great arch support. Upper is easy to clean. Rubber toe offers good protection. Dirt & grime does get stuck easily in the no-slip tread.

Pretty good shoe! One of the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn to work. I work on a delivery truck, and deliver an average of 150 stops a day. The shoes were very comfortable right out of the box. They seem to be very durable also. It rained the first day I wore them and my feet stayed dry. Not real crazy about the large toe though.

These are a high quality, sturdy shoe. Support is good but I expected more cushioning consider they list a memory foam footbed. They feel more like wearing a work boot than kitchen shoes. I won't buy another pair.

These are a beautifully made shoe. I wanted something better built than the SFC I've been wearing, but with a non-slip sole. However, these shoes will beat your feet up! They are super supportive, but have no cushioning. I live in my Targhee II, but even after extra gel sole inserts they are still too hard!

I stand a lot for work and thought that this would be a good shoe. The toe box is quite roomy if you like that sort of thing. I returned it because the insole had a wierd ridge on the heel that created a pressure point. Not good for a shoe supposedly designed for comfort.

These are geat all day shoes. I work in production. I have some days that are 14, 16, 20 hours long. Bought these shoes a few months ago. They are night and day versus other shoes that I have tried. Especially if you are on concrete all day. I do not usually write reviews, but I have tried a number of shoes in the past. The Adidas original Sambas are what I wear usually, with an added Dr Sholls insert. I love those shoes, but these are better for over 12 hour days.

My husband loves these shoes and this is probably his 3rd or 4th pair. He is on his feet most of the day but needs a polished looking shoe. Although they aren't overly dressy, they work well for his needs.

I love Keen shoes, However, this pair out of the 6 I have was made very poorly. I like that the bottom is non slip. But the inside of the shoe is falling apart. All of the interior seams have a lot of every fabric making the shoes uncomfortable.

The shoes are great! They are not pretty, but when you are looking for something to wear when you are on your feet on a concrete floor all day, pretty is near the bottom of the list of needed features. And the delivery - I ordered on Sunday evening and had my shoes on Tuesday! That was amazing! Good service, guys!

These are great shoes. I buy a new pair for work every year. They are the only shoes that I will buy for work because they are perfect. I love the box toe. I do, however buy separate insoles for them, but I have never bought a shoe that did not need an insole.

Both of my sons have jobs at fast paced restaurants as servers and they need good, sturdy shoes that are slip resistant when they enter into the kitchen to pick up food orders. These shoes are excellent! I purchased a pair for one of them 2 1/2 years ago and I'm just now replacing them along with buying another pair for my other son. After the first night back to work with his new shoes, my son said the back pain he'd been having was gone! These shoes are excellent for all day, on your feet work...great support and would definitely recommend them! Also, Zappos, you are amazing! I ordered these late on a Friday night and my boys had them to work for Monday night shifts!

I have always had a hard time finding shoes that fit my feet. My feet are wide and the PTC Oxfords fit perfectly. These shoes hardly need any time to wear in, they're very comfortable right out of the box. I like the non-slip tread because these are used at work. My first pair of these lasted about a year before they gave up, so I tossed them out and bought a second pair. I highly recommend these shoes, and I equally recommend Zappos. Their customer service is top notch.

These shoes are great. Comfortable. Durable. They have the wide form factor of the old Austins, but with better insole and tread...I'm on my feet nearly all day and they are happy in these shoes without getting fatigued. 5 stars (note: if you have wide feet, try 1/2 size up).

Absolutely a great shoe. I wear an orthotic. After removing the insert that comes with the shoe, the orthotic fits in perfectly. Expansive toe box. Smart look, inobtrusive, but enough detail to not be plain. Love them.

Great shoe that I purchased to work as a server in a restaurant (non-slip, black leather). This is my 4th pair of Keen's, their shoes fit my foot well. I had another pair of utility shoe/boot for a tree service I used to own, where other 'high-end" boots lasted 1 year, the keens lasted 3 years. Looking forward to a long relationship with this pair. Soles last the longest.
