These appear to be just the way they are described for size and width. I would probably go with a wide next time as they feel a little snug. Otherwise I love the styling. I wear them outside of work too.

Fit fine - have always been a a Keen fan with hiking boots and 2 steel toe shoes - but these don’t breath - and are very uncomfortable have began reeking - may try drilling holes for ventilation

Larger than I expected, but perhaps I wasn't wearing right sox. I'm an 11 or 11 1/2 in most other brands. These boots are plenty warm without making my feet sweat (I work on Cape Cod in the winter). I changed out the inner-sole for a custom because I need to protect a surgically repaired knee and the included inner sole wasn't going to cut it. Super comfy for standing around in, can be a little to rigid for walking. Perhaps that will get better with time. No blisters or excessive foot soreness after wearing them for nine hours right out of the box. Would by again.

First time purchaser, coming from Asics GT-1000 6 size 13. These in size 13 were at least one size too large. Will return for size 12.

These shoes were a perfect length and width for my feet however, the footbed was not shaped like the bottom of my foot. The only way I can describe it is "lumpy". All the support points were very firm but in the wrong place to the point where my legs and back suffered after only a few minutes of wear. I gave these shoes a couple days at work hoping they just needed a break-in period but good god did my legs and feet suffer! Never again, Keens. Never. Again!

Manufacturer Defect; not covered under warranty. The sole on my boots split(see photo) with about 8 months of very light use. Keen refused to honor their 1 year warranty. There are multiple reviews online stating the same issue. Pretty obvious its a manufacturer defect. The boots look good, and are comfortable enough. The do not breathe well at all, thus resulting in heat being trapped in the boot. If you're looking for a high quality, durable boot - this is not it, and don't count on Keen to cover any defects.

Really great work boot for my husband who is a farmer. He likes how comfortable they are and we love Keen! This boot however was falling apart two weeks into wearing them. He has had them a year now and they are trashed. These have not held up nearly as well as some of the Keen shoes we have had in the past.

I have always worn the keen Pittsburg boot for work. Last year I decided a taller boot would give me more ankle support after a broken ankle injury. I can’t say enough good thinks about the MtVernon. In keen style the fit perfect right out of the box with very little breakin time. I had no experiences with leaking. Just purchased my second pair as I was in a motorcycle accident and if it were not for the steel toe in these boots I would have lost my big toe. Way to go keen. I am a lifetime wearer of keen products!!

These are absolutely as comfortable a pair of boots that I have ever owned! And I have hard feet to fit. I wear a size 12 - 4E in the New Balance sneaker (New Balance Fresh Foam works the Best for me)... and in boots, I have always worn the Keen Pittsburgh Utility boot with the soft toe. I wear a size 11-EE in the Pittsburgh Utility boot and that boot has been consistent in their sizing for years. There is a huge swing in sizes for me from the sneakers to the boots, But once I found my size and style of sneaker or boot I liked, I could always count on the size being the same with each product - no guesswork! The Best value using Zappos is their customer service - They have consistently been friendly and always going out of their way to get you what you want and when you want it. Kudos to Customer Service! I have worn these boots now for 3 years and still going strong!!! (altho I need some new laces)

Slightly larger than expected. I wasn’t crazy about the fit of the issue. I also didn’t care for the quality of the leather. It feels more like a reign shoe than a shoe I would want to walk in all day. Not dressy enough for wearing to the office.

Really impressed with this boot. Comfortable out of the box. I love the style on my feet even more than in the pictures. The brown is a little lighter than shown. My work is forklift mechanic. All indoors, all concrete warehouse floors. They get dusty, greasy, lots of squatting and on my knees. I've sworn off Red Wings, wasn't overly happy with my Danners, these though, love them. Will definitely shop Keen first when I'm ready for the next pair. Will update if durability is an issue.

Furious at Keen for "updating" this boot!! I was a devotee of the previous version, having purchased at least 10 pair in the last five years. This version is heavier, narrower in the upper and has a wider sole. I wore them for a week in denial of the pain in my feet, ankles, legs and hips --thought I could break them in. Thanks to Zappos being awesome, I was able to return them even with a week of miles. https://www.zappos.com/p/asin/B004LE81N4

This is my second pair of Keen Utility boots so I expected them to be as good or better than my last pair. Boy what a let down. They are worse than worthless, they can hurt you. The lace design will not under any circumstances keep the tongue inside the upper part of the boot. This results in zero ankle support. These "boots" are nothing more than heavy shoes. I have twisted my ankle twice, once to the point of needing ice. Don't bother with these if you need a good fit with ankle support.

This is the first pair of Keen's I've owned. I usually wear Sketcher's Workforce and generally have been pretty happy with them. Keen (at least this style) was a whole new experience. These shoes are awesome! They were unusually, very comfortable from day one. No break in period either, which was a nice change from my Sketchers. I've wore them daily for about a week now and have ZERO complaints. Just for reference, I'm on my feet, on tiled concrete for at least eight hours a day at work. If that describes your work situation...you'll be happy with these shoes.

These shoes were a bit too short. Not any room for heavy winter socks. Otherwise it seems that it would keep you warm and dry.

These run wide and just aren’t very comfortable. Bought some superfeet insoles to help improve the support. Within 2 months they already had a hole just below where the safety toe ends. Just not impressed with the quality of this shoe.
