I'm not sure what it is about Keens but I've never understood the hype after trying multiple models over the years. They have always felt clunky to my or have rubbed in odd places. These had such good reviews so I figured one more try for a special purpose work toe in a unique package. Nope. These have got to be the absolute heaviest shoes I've ever handled. I mean they have mesh yet are heavier than my leather boots! There is close to zero arch support which means anyone with a normal foot will probably feel fatigue quickly... However you may never realize this since they have concrete for inserts with no cushion whatsoever. Oh, and as other reviewers have mentioned they put a lot of pressure on your achilles so expect rubbing and/or blisters (as many others mentioned) If Keens work for you in general maybe these will be fine, but I can wear just about anything from any brand and these fail in just about every way... short of the work toe which did actually have room to wiggle in.

I like the boots, they aren’t as comfortable as I had hoped, but they are breaking in and good for work and the snow. I do find the laces have started to wear immediately and will need to get a replacement set after only 30 days or so on wearing.

I would like to provide a full review, but I couldn’t fit the size 14 on my foot. I typically wear a 14 but these wouldn’t budge past half way. I put 3 stars on each, but only because I had to put something.

They run small, so I exchanged for a half-size larger. It fit just fine, but it felt like the shoe had no arch support. The heel felt too high or something odd. Too bad, because they are cute.

As a Marine veteran, I have bad feet from years of abuse. My job now requires me to wear steel toe shoes over 40 hours a week. As advertised, these shoes have been the only ones I have found to provide the comfort and quality that they talk about in the description. I buy a new pair every year and the durability and quality is great.

I usually order 1/2 size up on the Keen Whispers. I have very narrow feet with a AAA heel size 7, ordered a 7-1/2 and these still felt tight. Usually I have a hard time finding narrow shoes. I'm returning them instead of ordering a larger size.

These are great shoes. Needed a comfortable shoe with steel toe for everyday wear (standing on concrete). Good looking shoe, as well. This is a re-order. Bought this exact same pair of shoes over two years ago and would re-order again.

Again, another great fit right out of the box. Very comfortable out of box as well. Still, they need a little bit of break in time for best fit and feel. Do like the bottom tread design. Reminds me of a tennis shoe. Very happy with purchase.

This was the one. Lightweight and comfortable right out of the box. After reading the other reviews I was still pleasantly surprised at how soft this boot was out of the box. Keen always has a generous toe box which is great with my wider feet. Did not need to order the EE as the D fit perfectly. The lightweight sole and comfortable foot bed have made the first couple days of wear enjoyable. Will keep an eye on the durability but so far very pleased.

I've probably purchased more than 15 pairs of Keen shoes and boots over the years. I know what size to order. They run about a half size small. The toe box is wider than most which is another reason I like them. These boots were very comfortable from the first day I wore them. They have great support and they look great. I change out the laces to one that stays tied. That's my only complaint. I love these boots.

My husband loved these boots and ordered them in his usual Keen size. Sadly they were too big. Nice style and they were going to be used for working in sloppy snowy outdoor conditions. Love the Keen brand

Love these for work shoes!!. I've worn through several pairs over the past few years. One pair of these will last me an entire whole year. They are comfortable, durable, breathable, and easy to get on and off. Can't say enough how impressed I am with the quality and functioning of these shoes.

The leather feels like plastic...Are they actually leather? Nothing on shoe or box says leather. Also they squeak pretty loudly when you walk. I called Zappos about the squeaking and they had a new pair at my doorstep the next day!! Unfortunately, the second pair also squeaks..It would be nice if they carried a 10 1/2 in the womens in the Keen PTC Oxfords. Zappos is a wonderful company and they ALWAYS make sure the customer is happy...

I am so disappointed in these shoes. I always wear a size 8 in Keens. I own over 75 pair. I’m a bit of a fan. I couldn’t even get my foot into these. They were cold when they arrived, I live in NH, I let them warm up and it didn’t make any difference. Unfortunately they will be going back, luckily, Zappos has the best customer service on the planet!

I have been a big fan of Keen for the last six year and gone through a few of their work boots. I wanted to get something durable but lighter for work and hiking. The reviews all recommended going up a half size but I had to return and go up a full size. The width was fine, EE. Hope this helps.
