I have been trying to find a comfortable pair of rugged boots for years now. I am the manager of the warehouse for a company that makes bomb suits. All concrete floors, 10 to 12 hour days. These boots are the best I have found to date.

Got these boots in the middle of last winter and they already have tears where they bend for the toes. I usually factor about $100 per winter but these didn't make the cut. And they run a little large.

Great! My order came in several days, boots fit perfect and very comfortable, I'm not one for steel toe boots but these are made extremely well and with the toe guard will insure there will not be any blowouts in the toe area like others I have purchased from another main brand boot manufacturer (Timberland) will most definitely buy a keen boot again no doubt! Excellent product!

Amazing boots. Felt great right from the first time they were put on. I was worried because one of the reviews said they did not break in very good. No worries now. They feel great and don't even need a break-in period. Very comfortable and sturdy. Great for people with wide feet.

I am very happy with my Tacoma's. Many fellow workers commented on the look of the boot. So many in fact, I am considering becoming a dealer. The toe guard is the main reason I purchased the boots. Most other brands show excessive toe wear in just six months. I am hoping the toe guard will protect the boot for at least one year.

A sturdy and incredibly comfortable pair of boots. Everybody on the job asked me where I got them. I was pleased to tell them about the great service I got from Zappos (as usual).

I love these boots. They have held up very well so far. I live in Seattle and waterproof boots are a must and these keep my feet very dry. I use them in a variety of places (i.e. on roofs, under houses) and there are no wear marks on them. I recommend these to anyone that is hard on their boots and needs a set for the workplace.

I received the boots and they are awesome! They are extremely well made and very durable. I go to a lot of heavy construction sites and these boots can take a beating. They are a little heavy at first but you get used to the weight very quickly. They were broken-in after the first day and are a top notch boot for sure. They are very comfortable and give a great amount of support. I would buy these boots again.

Nice boots. I usually wear 10.5 EE shoes, and these felt right on the money. They feel a bit narrow but i think they will ease up a bit. No break in time needed, they fit perfectly right away. I had some pressure points on the upper tongue (insole) but it went away after repositioning the tongue and laces a bit. Very comfortable and rugged, i can spend a whole day in them...no stress for the feet. The boot is warm and it does not breathe much and that is my biggest problem. After more vigorous work, my feet feel too warm... Cleats are narrow so laces don't move too much as you walk. Heel collar is a bit soft but it is no a big problem. The boot feels solid, comfortable (it is a bit warm) but i would definitely recommend it.

The fit great, they provide good support, they took a long time to break in but now they are great. The only thing I would change is the laces they come with, as they always come untied or work loose.

Shoe is tight at its broadest point, loose at the heel. Speed lacers are too tight and when I tied them for fourth time I wore them, the pot metal speed lacer broke off. They look nice though.

Best pair of work boots I've ever owned. I've done 2 weeks of straight digging and they've held up wonderfully. As for comfort I couldn't ask for more. Great wicking ability. Had no discoloration or damage when I spilled diesel fuel on one of them. after 10 hour days digging holes, my feet thank these boots! I'm glad I spent the time to research this site and find these boots. Now you don't have to, buy them!

I have been buying Wolverine Harrison boots from Zappos for years. They've been great. It was time to buy a new pair of work boots and these Wolverines were no longer offered on Zappos.com. I decided to try these Keen Tacomas. These boots are listed as waterproof. The pair that I received leaked the first time I wore them in wet weather (snow). My feet were soaked and freezing all night at work. Perhaps I just received a defective pair, but I am not happy with this product. I am returning these. The customer service representative I spoke with was fantastic. He set me up with a return without any hassle. He even went so far as to direct me to another place I could purchase the Wolverines that I had been purchasing in the past. Excellent customer service. Thank you Zappos.

First and foremost Awesome boots, however the second eye loop down will make your ankles hurt. To solve this problem I put the dr sholls work gels in to raise my foot in the boot and now I don't want to take the boots off. They are a little bit heavier then other brands because they use better materials and you can feel it. The toe box is very wide so if you order wide shoes I would try the regular width first. Unbelievable boots when these wear down I will be getting another pair. I don't think that I would even try another make or model of boot again as long as they keep makin these.

These boots look good and are comfortable. I bought them in wide and they feel real good. Only problem is a little heavy due to steel toe. Other Keens that have composite are lighter however it'll save my foot if they are ever run over by a forklift!

I work long hours standing on cement floors, so I was looking for a comfortable work boot with plenty of support. I found what I needed with the Keen Utility Tacoma 6". These boots have been comfortable since the first time I put them on. There was no break in period, just like any other Keen boot that I've purchased before. There is plenty of toe room, and they seem to breath pretty well. They are also a nice looking boot, and I have received several compliments from coworkers on how nice the boots look. I have only worn these boots for a month, but I would recommend them them highly.

These boots are fantastic. Did not have to break them in as they are super comfortable from the first wear. A heavy duty boot! My feet feel safe and sound in them. They are also really nice looking. I have gotten compliments on them. The cool black weave is like nothing I have seen before...style and utility. Keen has done it again.

Excellent boot. I own several pairs of "high dollar" boots, some for show, some for hunting...this is by far the most comfortable pair I own. Several reviews stated they're warm...well, all true work boots are warm, they have to be tough, and this comes with a price...they inherently will be warm...but out of all work boots I've worn (and worn out!), these actually breathe! These, like all work boots, felt heavy in-hand, but securing them to Mike-n-Ike then walking in them, all I can say is "Wow"! They're not near as heavy-feeling as all the others I've had. I had full intention on buying Timberland PRO Storm Force, but these boots had better reviews. I'm a Timberland Fan, and will continue to be, but Keen may have my attention for work boots...time in the Gulf of Mexico Oilfield in these boots will tell, and will make-or-break Keen (for/with me), but so far, Koowee I'm impressed!
