Great, comfortable waterproof boot! My son was looking for a boot that came in larger widths, but still very comfortable for work and slip resistant. He wears a true 9 1/2 wide and has a difficult time finding comfortable boots. These are perfect! A bit on the pricier side, but worth it. Nice looking boot!

Good roomy work boots for my big feet. After a few weeks of use, they seem well built, without being terribly heavy. Who came up with "slate gray" as the color name? The rubber sole and toe cap are black/gray, but the leather looks just like the picture...I'd call it chocolate brown.

I like the boots. It is my 2nd pair. I wore out the soles of the first pair walking/hiking daily over the past year. The boots are "work" boots but they are my favorite for hiking. I like the sturdy construction and the weight of the boots give me a sturdy base. I have a wide foot but the regular width suits me. I use orthotics so the removable footbed is a plus. Zappos is a great site to shop. Delivery is quick. Returns have been processed with no complaints in the past.

Possibly the best pair of boots I've ever bought. Exceeded my expectations in terms looks and fit. They look and feel tough. If they're like previous Keen boots I've owned, they'll be pretty much indestructible. I have wide feet and these fit with just enough room for thicker, cold weather socks. Solid and substantial without being ungainly, these boots have a nice sturdy sole. Love these boots!

Brands I'd also recommend: Timberland, Ecco, Caterpillar

My husband loves this boot. He is on his second pair. The first pair lasted him a year and he is an electrical contractor. He has a wide toe box but the medium width fit him just fine. It's nice and roomy and squishy and comfortable. The second pair took a little longer to break in though and I'm not sure why.

Finally a real pair of boots,that fit big wide feet. I'm a HVAC service tech, and constantly on the move. They take all the punishment I give them and always feel great. They are actually very roomy in the toe box, actually probably the widest boot you can find. I have to say Zappos really stands behind great service 24/7.

I have an extremely difficult time with finding boots that fit due to a foot injury years ago. These boots, quite honestly fit right out of the box! I was so impressed I immediately ordered another pair. Also have to mention my experience as a first-time buyer with Zappo's was exceptional. Will definitely be coming back!

I was worried about buying shoes online without having tried them on first, but these boots are great. They are very comfortable and sturdy, and are very good when on ladders or gaffing a utility pole. I highly recommend these boots.

Seem to be a nice sturdy boot. I ordered a wide width to begin with but the regular d width was large enough. Lots of toe room!

Great boot! Been wearing them for about a month here in Afghanistan in the cold, and snow. I wear 2 pairs of sock for the cold, but stay nice and dry! Sizing is correct, and Zappos is the bees knees!

Love, love, love these boots! Unfortunately though, they felt too wide, almost like my feet were swimming in them. I normally wear an 11-D, but even the slightly smaller 10.5-D just felt too big. Walking around trying to wear them in, kind of felt like they were coming off of my foot. I have to say though, these are amazingly well constructed boots that would easily hold up to anything on a work site.

A decent boot. A little heavy but seems well built. This boot is not waterproof. I got the wide one and has plenty of room. Overall I'd get it again if it were waterproof.

I love Zappos! Great service, fast and friendly - they go above and beyond for their customers. I have had these boots for a month now and so far so good. I am really picky with boots but these boots feel great and feel durable. I would definitely recommend these boots for people with wide feet.

So far a good boot. The only thing I don't care for is that it looks like you have a huge big toe. Definitely look like Keens.

In size 11.5 Wide (my usual size) these are unusually roomy - plenty of space for my big orthotics AND my toes. They offer excellent support and stability for standing, but are pretty harsh for hiking and such - very emphatic heel-strike. They're also really, really heavy. Construction appears to be bomb-proof and if you like the Keen look they're fien looking, too.

These boots were the most comfortable boots I have put on, coming straight out of the box. They seem to be pretty sturdy so far. I shoe horses so they get a work out. I have found them to be a bit heavy. Other than that, I like this boot.

Bought these Milwaukee Work boots in June of 2015. Following an accident kayaking, I was unable to pick them up in the US until October, 2015. Fit is good, there is a funny hole on the R hand side of the L shoe, where the piping does not go under the rubber toe. Poor quality control? I have also noted that the grommets on the inside of the boot are rusting! I live out of the US and wear them daily. After about 1 month, I noticed the lace on the R boot was fraying. I had seen this before on Keen Tacomas. The outer casing of the lace just snapped one day while putting them on. After 3 months! The Tacomas frayed but never did break. When I contacted Keen for assistance, the sent an eMail saying "there were no laces available for the Milwaukee Work Boot, and that they do not ship internationally" Recommending I order from a shoe lace vendor online! Doubt I will ever order their products again. The boot is rugged and comfortable, but who puts grommets inside a work boot that is rusting? Also, can't make laces available for a defective product! Sticking with My Red Wing, 899's no rust, and normal laces work without funky lace eating cleats!
