Great boots! Comfortable to wear all day right out of the box! No "break-in" period needed. Only one minor thing though. Keen needs to widen the upper lace cleat openings. Thick laces are a little tough to get in. Otherwise, these boots are excellent in every way.

This is a great boot for working out in the weather. They are extremely comfortable and required zero breaking-in time at all. I wore them to work the same day I got them and had no problems at all. They kept my feet dry and comfortable all night out in the rain. I really like that the first quick lace eyelets really get a good grip on the laces and won't let them slip as you finish lacing them up. These are great boot and worth the money.

These are great boots, Keen gets it! The only problem is Keen tends to discontinue various lines so I ordered a second pair just to be safe, the only reason I gave it a three in comfort is inner side fold on the tongue irritated my foot for the first month of daily wear but that has subsided.

These boots are comfortable, waterproof, warm - a little too warm. The temperature just got above 70 and I don't think I'll be able to wear them when it gets hotter? I bought them because of an NPR radio interview and all I heard was this guy was starting a shoe manufacturing company and making shoes in Portland Oregon, so I ordered a pair. These boots are made in China. I was mad, also the soles are really wide they kind of feel awkward.

These boots are amazing!!!! Feels like you're wearing slippers and hanging out at home. I've worn them for 10+ hours working at various job sites (residential & commercial) and they are by far hands down the best work boot I've ever worn. I would highly recommend this boot to anyone who is looking for a sturdy but very comfortable boot that keeps your feet warm, dry, and very well protected. The quality is A+++++.

These boots felt great right out of the box, they are a little bit looser than expected. Overall they are very comfortable, and appear to be very durable.

The best work boots I've ever had. Keens fit my feet very well, so I was excited to find this boot. I should go ahead and buy another pair since they probably won't be made when I need a new pair.

I love these boots. My kids call them my Bob the Builder boots. There is lots of space in the toe box so my toes aren't squished but they are secure on my foot and ankle. Even though they don't have a steel toe they still protected my foot from my horse stepping on it and are comfortable after 12 hours of running around outside.

So far so. Awesome. I work in landscape trades and I haven't thought about my feet since I put these boots on, and that's a very good thing. Can't speak to their durability but I would guess one full year of outdoor hard labor; much longer if your gentler or work inside.

My husband is a painter and can not wear steel toe boots. He has probably tried all the brands we can find locally. I was interested when I saw these and decided he should give them a try. He is very happy with them. The soft toes allow him to climb ladders without discomfort. They're really nice looking too.

It's all about the roomy toe. After enjoying the comfort of a pair of leather Keen shoes I decided to see if they made work boots. These were on sale and I ordered them immediately. They are great. No break-in period. Solid feeling. Great support. Best boots ever. They haven't been wet yet, but I'm confident that they won't ever pinch my toes like other boots after getting wet and drying.

Great, heavy-duty, very comfortable boot. The sole is perfect for working outside because it has traction, but not so much that too much mud and dirt sticks to the bottom. This boot is very comfortable. If you live in hot climates, it might be too warm in the summer months, but it's perfect for the northwest due to it being waterproof. I had to order a 1/2 size smaller than my other Keen shoes.

Keen Utility Tacoma 6" Soft Toe boots are especially comfortable because the toe part of the boot feels wider then most other boots. It is also comfortable because the boot is flexible so wearing it doesn't tire the wearer out.

Being on my feet for 16 to 18 hours a day these really keep up! My wife wears keens for hiking and casual wear and seems to love them so she suggested me getting a pair for work and I'm thankful I decided to give them a try! I normally would wear CAT, Timberland, or Red Wings which were my last pair and there really is no comparison. These boots are comfortable right out of the box and were the only things that kept me dry last week when I got soaked. They are extremely durable and by the end of the night my feet are still in good shape not like before where I would have swamp foot or they ached like crazy. My only complaint is they are on the roomy side but that could also be because my last pair of Red Wings were so narrow and tight. Thank you for offering such a rugged boot that keeps my feet comfortable and dry.

These boots are very comfortable. I have found that I need to order 1/2 size larger than I normally wear. The Toe Box area is very roomy, not at all confining, making these great if you like to wear thicker socks, however thicker socks are not required for these boots to feel right. Having had foot surgery, I can't wear very tight boots. These were perfect!

This replaced a worn out pair of 6" work boots and a pair of steel toe work shoes. Not missing my steel toes that were very heavy and narrow, and with the rubber toe cap these seem adequately protective. Very roomy toe that makes them feel wide, although the heel fits snugly. Only the top two hooks need to be undone to enter and exit the boot, although getting out like that is easier than getting in. No quality issues. Seem pretty comfortable so far, although I haven't walked any great distance in them yet. Maybe because its still summer, but the boots seem a little warm. I expect that with a pair of decent socks I'll use them all winter.

Shipping time was great! I don't know how, but I actually received these boots the day after I ordered them. When I took them out of the box I found them to be a great looking boot, good materials and well-made. Unfortunately when I tried them on I found them to be undersized. I normally wear 11 1/2 wide, but a coworker told me that these boots stretch out and you don't need to order the wide widths. So I ordered the 11 1/2 medium. When I tried them on they were very tight fitting. I wore them around the house for a couple of hours and they weren't unbearably tight, but it was not a comfortable fit. I wore them to work for couple of days hoping they would stretch out but they didn't seem too. I ended up selling them to a friend. I do intend to buy another pair in 11 1/2 wide.

At first, I had some discomfort in the toe area which has worn in in about 3 weeks. I notice the bottom of the shoe wears somewhat quickly on the floor because it is soft, probably due to the anti slip feature.

The only real bad thing I have to say about this boot is the insole is awful, I had to put in a cushier insole to be able to wear these all day.

Great boot, very comfortable. They are a bit bulky, but I do not typically wear work boots, so that is likely the issue. My only complaint is that I don't care for the speed laces at the top. 3 high is too many and I'd prefer just 1 or maybe 2.

My initial impression was that the sole wore out quickly. I noticed it falling apart withing 2 weeks of wearing it. Now, 4 months later, it is almost all gone and I have to buy new boots. The sole is far to soft and even though it does give good slip resistance, the sole falls apart and once its gone, the slip resistance is gone. The slip resistance factor is completely gone on my pair now and the shoe laces lasted longer than the boot...

I have had these boots for 6 months. I wear them almost every day. I totally agree with the comments about the awesome comfort they offer right off the bat. I had purchased them after trying their winter hiking boots last January and now have purchased 2 more pair for my wife. My only complaint, and this may affect future work boot purchases, is that the soles are already wearing out, cracking and even getting sliced. I also find that the boots are more slippery than other boots I have owned. I work on a farm and find myself on a wide variety of surfaces, so these issues are important. I kind of thought the soles were not that deep or aggressive when they first arrived, but having been so pleased with my other Keens and how comfortable these boots are, I let it go.
