Very happy with this product! Exceeded expectations! I have large feet (15) and am in construction. These shoes were true to size and they are very comfortable.

This is my second pair of Keen work boots and I will buy them again. The durability and comfort of the boot is well worth the money. Zappos processed my order quickly and I received my boots sooner than expected.

Love these boots. Comfortable, light (for size) and very tough. I am tough on my boots. Long time Timberland Pro wearer. Switched on recommendation of a salesmen. Keen are more comfortable and so far, much more durable. Fantastic toe and forefoot protection. This is my second pair of Keen's. Would still be wearing the others if I hadn't cut them open with an axe. Of note, I had to drop a half size from my last pair (Keen Pittsburgh).

These boots are plenty spacious inside, maybe a little too spacious. However, I wear an insole and with that they fit very well. The sole tends to pick up rocks/gravel because of the deep treads. They are taking a little longer to break in than the Flint mid but are nice boots so far.

A little bulky. But the comfort is great. The looks are good. My 2nd pair of keens. My first was the Wellington pull ons. The insides started sagging and it felt like a Chinese finger trap getting my feet out, so I decided to go with the lace ups because I like the comfort of keen.

I really liked the rugged look and feel of these Keens they are very heavy which would not have been a problem if the fit and feel were beter. Ultimately I'm sending this pair back. The Arch support feels a bit too far forward and the boot is a bit too wide. Could be that I need half size smaller and a narrow but the Thorogoods I got at the same time are keepers.

Brands I'd also recommend: Wolverine, Thorogood

These boots lasted about two months before they started to fall apart. The first thing to go was the seam between the padded ankle cuff and the leather. Next about four months into me wearing them the leather began to separate from the rubber sole of the boot. I have had two pairs of Keen Utility boots prior to these and have been happy with them. These boots fell apart way faster then the other two. I wear my boots for work five or six days a week for ten hours a day, so they do get used. But for the price I would expect at least a years worth of wear and tear out of them.

They are comfortable but seem to lack durability. The first pair I got developed a tear at the seam along the back of the ankle. Zappos sent me a replacement pair which I thought was very cool of them. The third day of wearing the new pair it rained and neither foot stayed dry. I had a leak in the toe of one boot and in the seam between the upper and sole of the other boot.

Let me first start off with, I absolutely love Keen shoes and I hate writing negative reviews. I bought a pair of Keen shoes over two years ago and the footbed of the slip on shoe is amazing. I am on my feet all day so I do not hesitate to spend money on good footwear. I purchased these to try something different with my work boots. With so many positive reviews I bought these. These boots are extremely uncomfortable. The insert is paper thin and gives no cushion between your foot and the hard sole (which is excellent for work). The energy transfer when you step is felt directly on your foot since there is no cushion. It literally feels like you are walking on concrete with bare feet. It did not take long for my foot to throb with only wearing for a few hours. I will not directly plug their competitor but I usually wear boots with Anti-Fatigue Technology. Keen, please look into investing money for developing a superior insole for your boot. It is crazy to buy such expensive boots and then have to buy an insole. I would not even care if they were more expensive but I did not have to buy an insole. The boots should be comfortable when you buy them. I will continue to buy Keen shoes since they are amazing but not for work.

Disappointed! After 3 weeks of normal wear, these boots are coming apart! Both boots have large tears/holes where the leather and fabric meet at the achilles. I see other reviewers have had the same issue. Keen should be recalling these boots. For the cost, I expected these to last at least 6 months- we got less than 1 month out of them. Lame. Zappos is awesome enough to help us out with this issue, but I hope Keen will be held responsible for the poor quality of these boots.
