Great low-cut steel toe. Roomy toe box, quality arch support. Be sure to wear socks that will cover your Achilles; mine "eat" my low socks, which can leave that area exposed for a potential blister. Only reason they only get 4 stars from me in comfort is that frankly, no steel toe can stand up to the hours per day I work in them on concrete. These are the closest I've found to being successful at it.

I tried these on and wore them for all of one minute before I put them back in the box and returned them to Zappos. I don't know if the steel toe goes back really far or what, but when I would step, something hard dug into the top of my foot and it was not comfortable.

I tried both the Keen Utility Atlanta Cool ESD (this shoe) and the Keen Utility Detroit Low. I have very wide feet and this shoe seemed to run narrow, even though it was a Wide. The Keen Utility Detroit Low fit perfectly.

I had to return a pair of work shoes I wanted to try the wide. I returned them and got my normal size. I was very pleased with the exchange it was very timely. I have ordered other shoes and have always been happy.

These are very comfortable. A bit heavy, but that's expected with safety toe shoes. I went down a half size, because these run a bit large.

Loved these shoes right out of the box! I bought them for my trip to Ireland for hiking and what not. They are just a hair narrower then I had hoped they would be and I will need to put my own insoles in the shoes. Thankfully the ones in the shoe come out very nicely so I can replace them. On the whole though I would recommend these to anyone. I do love them.

Since I have discovered that Keen makes Steel toe boots & shoes, Keen is now my Steel toe. For me, there was no need to 'break' these in. I am on my feet from 10-14 hours on average. This time I opted for the 'shoe' style and not the boot. Oh, and the quick draw-string to tie your laces...love it. I order this on Friday night, and I received the on Monday. Fast delivery! Definitely will order again when the time comes.

Brands I'd also recommend: any....Keens :)

These shoes are great! I'm 58 years old work, 12 hours a day, been working in steel toe shoes for 16 years and these are the best I've ever had. My feet do not hurt after 12 hours. Only shoe I've found that is comfortable as these and my company pays for my shoes if I get them at the store where they pay. I bought mine for the last 2 years; will keep doing so.

Brands I'd also recommend: none

Love these shoes. Didn't take much at all to break them in/get them comfortable. True to size, but maybe go a half size up if you like your hikers a little roomier in the mid-foot area. Feet feel great after hours of stomping through woods and creeks and mud!

Loved these, but an experienced hiker convinced me I need ankle high boot instead. They were very comfortable and I may regret returning them. Roomy but not too big for my size 7.5 W foot.

These are very heavy but I have worn these shoes basically every day for over three years. They are perfect. I wore them while working in a clinic, at school, in laboratories, and outside on a farm. I work with animals in the veterinary industry, and these are great shoes for a technician. They are not the warmest shoes, and they do have mesh so your feet can get very wet if you are trudging through water, but they breathe wonderfully in the hot muggy southeast summers. Also, they are very non-slip and provide good foot support. I have only had one comfort issue - wearing them for over 20 hours straight while constantly walking gave me a blister on each heel.

I like the shoe very much but I should have gotten a wider width however they fit my daughter better and she likes them. The toe area was too tight but I have problem feet.

Super comfy! High quality materials. I was worried about the steel toe adding too much weight or being uncomfortable. But no worries! These shoes are great. I'm on my feet anywhere from eight to fourteen hours a day. Love these shoes!

I bought these because I have another pair of Keens for work, which are waterproof and not as breathable. These are a great replacement for summertime on construction sites and outside! No more sweaty feet! Although based on reviews I thought they would be lighter, given the steel toe, they are still lightweight enough to wear all day. I was walking well over 10,000 steps a day in these shoes for 3 days straight - I had no blisters, but like any shoe you walk in all day, I was ready to take them off at the end of each day. They didn't hurt to put back on the next morning and keep going though! They are slightly smaller (mostly noticed in the toebox) than my other Keens, which are the same size, but I kept them and they haven't been an issue.

Keen is my shoe of choice for walking. This is my second pair in several years. Slightly roomier, this one takes a thicker sock, or not if you'd rather have a cooler foot. Footbed supportive and well balanced. Excellent new feature is the pull tie that eliminates messy laces.

I did not realize they had steel toes, but that is fine. I do not know how much weight that adds to the boots, but I easily became accustomed to it. They have been very good so far my feeling secure on slushy bumpy sidewalks in Michigan. I have a large foam orthotic which fits very well - so I ordered half a size larger to accommodate it.

Fantastic! My new favorites for work, walking, and just wearing all day. These are very comfortable, and the steel toes protect my feet. They are roomy with a large toe box but I don't feel like I needed to order a smaller size than usual.

Bought these because I need steel-toe shoes for work, but didn't want them to look like work boots. VERY comfortable. Not too girly, but not afraid to get them dirty on construction sites. Also ordered the Ariat clogs, which looked dressier, but didn't have the arch support. Warning, though: the toe inserts make these heavy.

I was surprised at how light these shoes were for having steel toes. They do seem kind of bulky but no more than bulky hiking shoes. They run big so if you're unsure of your size, err on the smaller side.

These shoes have proven themselves at work and in the woods. Very comfy to stand and walk in for long days at the office (toe protection and ESD-safe are a definite plus where I work!). I took them camping over the weekend in a couple inches of slushy snow and they kept my feet warm, cozy, and dry. Only thing to note: these shoes, along with most Keens, have a very wide, boxy toe box. This makes them look a bit bulky, and might feel a bit different at first. I would recommend this shoe though. Wear them for a day and you'll see why!

Great lightweight and cool construction work shoe. The only problem is the air vents let in water when stepping through puddles.... so just walk around the puddles, not through them.

I walk 7 of 8 hours during my regular job duty and the shoes lose their fit after about 5 hours and I cannot get them to feel correct and they move too much due to the steel toe. This shoe would be great without a steel toe.

I loved these shoes. I work outside and I am on my feet all day rain or shine; the first four months they were the perfect shoes. I purchased them at the beginning of May and I have had them for five months. The lace broke on one shoe last month; broke down fast, they are not as comfortable as they were a few months ago. For me I do not think that I would get another pair of these they just do not hold up for the wear and tear.
