These are a very nice looking shoe, but they are wide. My husband consistantly wears a size 12, which is what we ordered and they just didn't fit. He felt the length was fine, but not the width so a smaller size wouldn't work. We returned them.

Fantastic shoe, I work long hours and have steel toe boots, but after 8 hours they become heavy. With these I don't notice the strain. Very comfortable. Love them!

Comfortable, durable and they protect your feet during work very well. This is my 6th pair of Keens and I have been very happy every time.

Great shoes, and comfortable. They are a little heavier than I prefer, but not too bad. They are waterproof so they don't breathe very well, and cause my feet to sweat. So I am now looking for a antimicrobial foot bed liner to try to cut the smell.

My kids call this daddy's "heavy shoes". They are a bit heavier than my sneakers but I use these everyday. They are the most comfortable shoes I've owned. I feel that they've molded to my feet and can't wear anything else. The inner side of the "wedge" of the outsole (I had to look it up) is starting to fray which is weird but it seems to be holding up. I guess it's time to get another pair.

I have been wearing these shoes for a couple months now and have had no issues with my feet toes being numb or in pain. I say that because I got these shoes for work to replace my old work boots that killed my feet. I stand, walk a minimum of 10 hours a day on concrete. I work in an indoor farm, and I can say that these shoes are water proof. They also provide good slip resistance on wet concrete. The safety toe is great and the shoes are light weight. It should also be noted that I did switch out the inserts with a Dr. Scholl's insert for more arch and ball of foot support. The inserts that the shoes come with are not bad; they just didn't fit my needs.

I have unique feet. They are 2E wide, with high arches and a big instep. Sometimes, it's a challenge to find shoes that fit well. Much to my delight, these shoes fit well right out of the box. They are very sturdy, and the steel toes are very tough and provide good protection for working at my job. They have plenty of grip on the smooth floor at work, as well as on the trail when walking my dog. I like the extra protection layer of the toe also, because I use my feet to move stuff around at work. These shoes are so tough, I feel like I could kick my way out of a bank vault if I was trapped inside. I am extremely happy with them, however they are somewhat heavy. This does not bother me at all, although some people might notice the extra weight. Worth the price to me, I wouldn't mind having another pair.

I purchased these shoes for my 23 year old son. He purchased shoes from WalMart and his feet hurt within the first week of employment. I brought these shoes for him and he said the feel great. He likes the insoles/cushioning best. He felt poor cushioning was the problem with the other shoes. With these shoes he has no arch support issues, he is flat footed so this is a really good commentary about arch support. He says the Left shoe feels tight around his 5th toe when he's been standing all day. He believes this is an individual nuance. I purchased a 13 D width. My son shared that they felt like a large/wide size 13, which equals comfortable.

These shoes are the most comfortable steel toe work shoes I have ever owned. Myself and co- worker Roy would both buy another pair. Zappos service was awesome also!

I just ordered these shoes and the first thing I realized is that these are seriously heavy-duty shoes unlike all the others I have bought in stores. They feel much more solid and tough and they were very comfortable right out of the box. I have a wide foot so I ordered EE and they are perfect. These have steel toes and you can really feel how rigid the ends are. I sure wouldn't want to get kicked by one! On top of it they really are styling and I feel this is one of the wisest decisions I have made in awhile.

Sizes are accurate. I wear size 14 and usually EE-wide, the shoe fits right in and the steel toe front does not hit the toes, so if you have a large foot order it extra wide for extra room inside. I highly recommend them.

I am a hard fit for any safety shoe, always complaining about toe space or width. The Keen Utility Detroit Low is the most comfortable and sturdy shoe I've bought. The solid form and tread, contour to hold foot in place, support during 12 hours of wear and great fit with work socks and true comfort for my toes. In addition, Zappos made it easy to find and quick delivery. They provide the reliable service and pay for delivery. Now my wife orders her footwear and if also very pleased. Its a pleasure doing business because they treat me like their #1 customer.

Brands I'd also recommend: Carhartt-bought one of these too!

My husband loves these shoes! He has to wear steel toed shoes at work and stands on his feet for 12 hours at a time. He says they are the lightest, most comfortable steel toed shoes he has ever worn! He will buy these again when they finally wear out! Thanks for making such a great work shoe, Keen!

I purchased these shoes for my handyman boyfriend who blows through his work boots and sneakers like crazy...his shoes were all spattered with paint and flimsy! He desperately needed some strong toe shoes for the summer time that were lighter weight. He also power washes a lot and had ruined all his sneakers. He loved these shoes! He says he doesn't slip at all if he's working in water and the toe box is keeping its shape nicely. They also go with all his work clothes and they're lightweight enough to wear in our hot Texas summers.

Awesome shoe! They fit about a size large so if you wear a 14 order a 13. I've had 'em for about 3 weeks here in Afghanistan, and they are super comfy. Not sure how waterproof they are just yet, but the composite toe really brings it home!

I bought these shoes almost 2 years ago and overall they are a great shoe. Which is why I'll be purchasing them again. I wore them only for work where I put in 10hr days on boats, docks and random construction projects. They are comfortable and supportive even to this day as my heal and anckles usually let me know promptly when a shoe's support is failing. The only fault I've had is the laces have chaffed through the lace loops. Drilling a hole in the leather fixed this for now but they are nearing the end of their life. The steel toe is great, protected me on a number of occasions. Again, great shoe for the money. I will be buying them again.

I bought these for my husband. He is on his feet walking on concrete all day, these shoes are perfect. His pain in his feet are gone and he loves them. There is no breaking in, he wore them right out of the box.

Excellent shoe! Very comfortable right out of the box. I like the heavy duty toe. Not overly heavy for a safety shoe. The tongue is just a bit short, only thing I can say bad.

I work long hours in a warehouse and my feet are usually in pain at the end of each day. I got these shoes and I have been extremely pleased with the fit, look and comfort of these shoes, as well as the toe protection they offer. They have a water-resitant outer lining and this is nice for shoveling snow and things like that. I don't have to worry about where I am wearing these shoes because they are durable and easy to keep clean.

Very comfortable and stylish for a steel toe work shoe. Virtually no break in time, and great for wide feet. Took them immediately to work on my feet all day with no discomfort. Very pleased.

My feet seemed like I was always walking barefoot, no matter what the shoe. Went to a podiatrist, and he said I've got two problems, flat wide feet and a bunion. His solution in the short term was to get wider, longer shoes to accommodate my issues. I was skeptical of Keen, never heard of them. Bought at a local store, and I've had no foot or arch pain since. Going to buy my second pair of these from Zappos.
