There is a weird amount of loose fabric inside the shoe over the toe that bunches up and is uncomfortable. This was in both shoes, so likely a design flaw not a manufacturing defect. They had to go back unfortunately.

I have been wearing keens for years, they are always comfy and reliable, very good material, and they look nice. I work in a shop so steel toes are necessary this is my second pair of steel toes. This pair seemed to fit a little narrow but I give them a benifit of a doubt because today is day one.

Wears large and toe is too wide, going to send back for 12’s and see if that works better. Would like much more arch support but I’ll use inserts I guess...

DId not know this shoe was a steel toe until it was delivered. It needs to be marked more clearly without reading the description.

I wanted to replace my Keen hiking shoes and tried these, not knowing what a "work shoe" was (item description wasn't clear on that, not on Keen's site either). Turns out that the sole is super stiff. Great for factory floors, but not so much for hiking trails with pitch- returning. LOVED the fit/toebox shape of the wide width though....! Wishing for more wide Keen COLORFUL hiking shoes (instead of everything grey, dark grey, and brown).

They were more narrow than a New Balance EE width. Otherwise the fit was great. I had to return as they were too narrow for me.

For a hiking shoe, I guess the shoe doesn't have to be that attractive. And its not. The front of the shoe was comfortable, the arch area of the shoe was comfortable. But the heel area...too wide. My heel was coming out of it when I walked across the room, no matter how tightly I laced them. For this style, Keen must think.... if you have a wider front of the foot, you must also have a thicker ankle area. So, if you're looking to buy this shoe and you don't also have a thick ankle, its a no go.

My Husband loved all the what came with it oil and slip resistant, soft toe, as well as the color. His shoe size is 13 wide but it felt like a 13.5. When he put on the shoe and started walking it looked like he was walking out the shoes. It's a half size larger. I tried to exchange them for 12.5 but his size was not available. Due to father's day weekend they barely and big sizes. I hated to return them and hope they have the 12.5 in the near future. So if you're trying to order your true size you might want to consider ordering a half size smaller. #1sadcustomerwishyouhavea12.5.............

Bummed. I’ve owned (and recommend) a number of Keen work boots over many years, but these let me down. As much as I hate to give Keen a bad review, these boots are poorly designed. They look great (although mine were a little darker than the image) and the footbed is very comfortable, but the lack of padding above the heel up creates a problem. There is a stiff seem holding in the heel padding which digs into my ankles. For this reason alone they are going back. They might be okay if you primarily do a lot of standing, but I’m in construction and am constantly moving around. In just the 2 minutes of trying them out inside the house I could feel that the rubbing would become a big issue. Also, I am a solid 8.5 in Keen boots and these felt quite big (and I don’t think a smaller size would fix the rubbing issue). The only reason I didn’t give these one star is that I know everyone is different, these might not rub right on the balls of your ankles, but beware its a possibility.

These felt true to size, but were much to heavy and looked incredibly large when I looked down at my feet. I ended up going with a pair of Timberland Pro 's for work that are composite and much more comfy for 9 hours on concrete.

Tried these shoes on previously at a shoe store in Centerra Mall off I-25 N. Liked the way they contoured my foot. Also the way my foot felt the short time I tried them on.

These boots felt and looked great upon first wear. However, they did not stand up to the rigorous demands of the work that I do. Within two months of wear, pieces of the sole were flaking and falling off. Also, when the bottoms are wet, I can hear and feel air escaping the sole with each step. I still love Keen boots. I am returning these and have chosen a pair of Flint II soft toe boots. Hopefully those will hold up much better.

First, I did not buy these from Zappos. Just giving my opinion on these shoes. I don’t like this new style, if that is what has happened to this shoe. For 10 years I have been getting the same style Keen and I have had no complaints. These seemed fine at first, but then your foot rides up tight into the toe box all shift. They are higher than the old style, I compared. And feel unsteady walking in them. They seem lower around the ankle as well. Seems like my ankle wants to roll. I’m going to have to try the men’s style, my hips and back are killing me in these.

I purchase these in Feb of 2016. The fit and size are great. I like the light-weight steel toe. My biggest complaint is that the tread gave away in several spots after a year and a half. I've had to glue it back on a number of times.

I got these for heavy yard work, but am thinking of getting a second pair for general wear because they are cute. They are a great pull-on boot so far. The leather may be a little soft for a work boot. They are very comfy and have a wide toe box and a narrower heel (foot shape!). Zero arch support. The ankle opening is perfect for me. If you are tired of huge ankle openings in larger size boots, you will love these. The alum. toe version does NOT have a slim ankle opening BTW. Very pleased! Took a star off comfort for arch support issue, but otherwise super comfy. They have a low heel, which is hard to find in a "work" boot.

I got these and the black ones (not aluminum toe) to use as yard work boots. They both have good room in the toe box, like a foot shape shoe. No arch support. Otherwise very comfy. I decided to keep the black ones instead because the black ones had a much smaller ankle opening. This one was too large for me.

I usually wear an 8 in Keens. I was so excited to finally have an option for tall boots. These felt much smaller than my others. I wanted to return and try a 9, but they aren't available. Unfortunately, back they go
