These are very comfortable work boots right out of the box. I wasn't able to wear them much around town before going to my jobsite, so I was worried that my feet would pay the price. Amazingly, these boots broke in almost immediately and didn't cause any hot spots on my feet. The leather is very supple. The collar is soft and flexes with your ankle. The toe box is nice and roomy, and the steel toes didn't rub on my foot at all. In the heel, there is a patch of what feels like moleskin. This really does a good job of holding your heel down and preventing slippage and blisters. Overall, a great boot so far after one week of use. If I had one negative comment, it would be that the boot seems a little wider than marked. I ordered the medium width boot and I have pretty wide feet. Even so, I have to crank the laces down pretty tight to get a snug fit. I'm a little concerned that I may have trouble getting the boots to stay snug if the leather stretches over time. Bottom line: A very comfortable boot right out of the box; width/fit over time may become an issue.

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.

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.

Comfortable from the beginning. No break in period. Have been wearing them everyday to work since I got them. As of now wont buy another pair of work boots that aren't Keen's.

I work as a carpenter doing residential remodeling. When looking for a new pair of work boots I went to the local store and tried on boots from all the major brands. When I tried on these Keens they were by far the most comfortable. They feel very tough and durable yet have a tennis shoe type feel on the foot. When I brought them to work I loved them. They are incredibly comfortable, and had hardly any break in period to speak of. With that being said, I was very disappointed to notice that after only two weeks of everyday use, the Black ankle padding (around the achilles part of the ankle) is tearing away from the leather above the heel. I am not looking forward to the task of finding another boot that fits as well as these.

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.

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

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.

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.

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).
