I just bought a pair of Keen Steel Toe work boots. I had some reservations about the steel toes because if something really heavy crushes your steel toe is can be even worse when they try to extract your feet from the clamped steel. But I also dropped a keg on my toe recently and that hurt!
They are really comfortable. So much so that when I got home I walked the dogs in them. Great support for standing on concrete all day. The water proofing on them are excellent and the non skid is pretty good, though seems that this could be the area of improvement. Regardless, for sheer comfort highly recommended.
If anyone is in the market for a great pair of all around work boots I can't recommend these boots highly enough. They are called the Keen Detroit Mid and they are fantastic. All day comfort, no need to replace the inserts, water proof and did I mention comfortable? I'm considering getting a second pair without the steel toe for hiking. Cost is reasonable too - $124.
Take it back, they fell apart. damn!
Wow, I have Keen sandals, shoes. The sandals are many years old and still in good shape. What was the failure mode? Do you think chimicals in the brewhouse were responsible?
