Shoes evidently were a return, which is fine--they were a size 9.5 in a box marked size 10. However, they were too short, and the left shoe just didn't fit well. I think they may have been comfortable, if both shoes had fit the same. My first try with Keen--not sure if I will try the larger size.

I buy these for my father every year as a gift. They are his favorite work boots because they are very comfortable and require no break in period. However they last him 1 year on the dot until they are completely falling apart- he is not doing crazy daily labor in these so I'm a bit disappointed in their very short lifespan.

These replace a pair of Tucson’s I had for construction work that I was able to get about 2 years of everyday use out of. The San Antonio doesn’t feel quite as solid as the Tucson, though, it is designed more like a running shoe and it isn’t a surprise that it Doesn’t have the same kind of support. That said, the shoe is lighter and breathes better, which will be welcome in the summer, and has all the safety benefits of the beefier Tucson. Took about a day of wear to break them in. All in all, very happy with the shoe.

I wanted these to work for me. I needed a got, strong work boot for doing outdoor country work. But sadly, I choose the other work boot ordered at the same time, and must return these. The reinforced toe area felt too narrow. The rest of the shoe was wide enough, but the toe area was where they cut into the side of my foot. I thought I could return for a double wide, but this shoe doesn't come in any other wider size other than W. I decided to choose New Balance again. They seem to be my number one go-to brand when it comes to feeling good on my feet. And working outdoors is hard work, no reason to deal with aching feet too! Thank you Zappos for excellent customer service. Quick ordering, quick shipping, and easy to return or exchange.

Very comfy boot. At my job at a dry fertilizer plant I walk stairs all day on grating. The sole of these boots holds up far better in this environment than more outdoor rugged tread type boots. They are waterproof as long as you keep the leather oiled which I did not. They lasted about nine months with zero maintenance performed being soaked in fertilizer water. Then they developed cracks and a hole where the leather creases from walking. As someone who wears barefoot style shoes these are as Close to that kind of fit as I can find in a steel toe if you Just get wide size. They have minimal heel to toe drop compared to your average boots. Not much of an insole inside but I found it adequate. Compared to my wolverines my feet were far less sore at the end of a day. I don't think there is a better safety toe shoe out there.

This is the third pair of the Keen Detroit XTs that my husband has ordered from Zappos in the past five years. He is very rough on his boots and has been very pleased with the durability, water-proof feature, comfort and fit. He thinks that these are the best steel toed work boots available. His only complaint has been the shoe laces coming untied. However, this latest pair has an improved lacing system and he has yet to have the laces on this new pair come untied on him. So now he thinks that they are PERFECT!

I love the style, sturdiness, and protection of the boot. It feels a little larger (mostly wider) than other shoes of the same stated size, but it's not too much. The shoes were very stiff to begin with and took a lot of time to break in. They made me walk kinda funny for a while! They're still a little stiff after 3 months of use, but not uncomfortable. The only significant negative about these boots is in regards to the laces. They began fray after just 4 weeks of almost daily wear. By six weeks in, they needed to be replaced. If Keen ever sees this review, I highly recommend they replace their standard laces with steel-tipped paracord laces. I bought some, and now I'm confident they'll last the lifetime of the otherwise very high-quality boot.

Strong shoe for me being in the service industry. Good for about a year and half then time for a new pair fabric on inside heel just breaks down. Only down side.

I ordered these for work and wear them 5 days a week. This is my second pair of Keen work boots and was very happy with them. The new pair fit very similar to the last and are very comfortable. The only complaint might be that they are a little warm during the summer months, but they are boots. I would like to see them add the option for an Aluminum toe in these boots. All in all I am very pleased with the boot and style.

Very strange fit! It's as if the arch is in the wrong place. It puts a lot of pressure on my heel and front of the foot and the arch has less than no support- it's hard on the foot. Tried two sizes and gave up. I'm very sad because they look good in concept.

I recently went looking for shoes that are good for plantar fasciitis, and this was one that stood out. I have historically worn Keen river shoes, and found them to be good in that capacity, so decided to give these a shot. I have been extremely pleased with them, perhaps even more than the river shoes because these are enclosed with material so do not get pebbles in them constantly. They are extremely comfortable, specifically with the metatomical footbed that supports the arch and foot pads. I have high hopes my plantar fasciitis will respond well to these shoes. The Keen Utility comes in a variety of iterations, and the Atlanta Cool is an excellent choice any time the ambient temperature is above 65 degrees. They are basically sandals with fabric mesh between the webbing, they run very cool. They are also steel-toed, which seems odd given that it is as much sandal as shoe, but they don't look like steel toes so I guess it's just an added plus. I rated the shoes three stars for style, pretty much just because I think they look a little silly, but I got these for function not cool factor. I've only ever worn basic black shoes, so maybe it's just me.

The sizing was as expected and fit to my standards, I always buy keen boots because they are usually the most affordable safety toe boots that have the asymmetrical toe that fits each foot better.

For years, my husband has worn high ankle, police-style combat boots, yet always complained about how badly his feet hurt. After retiring from police work, I FINALLY got him to try a pair of the Keen Utility Braddock Mid AL. The instant he put his feet into these I could see the relief in his face. His ahhhh moment. I have worn Keen for years and always loved them. He figured out that his feet changed as he aged and that he'd been wearing the wrong size & width. Now he feels great!

I had worn these shoes for 15 years & was ready for a new pair; forget it! They have changed dramatically & even ordering a whole size bigger I was in pain after 1 night at work. Why did they have to change such s previously great shoe? Don’t buy these!!!!
