Keen Men's Davenport Mid AL Waterproof Composite Toe Boot

Keen Utility Davenport Mid AL Waterproof Composite Toe Boot

Like every other tradesman on Earth, I’m on my feet all day. And it’s not as if I’m walking around on soft carpet or rubberized floors, either. No, I’m on concrete, asphalt, up and down ladder rungs, squatting, bending, and kneeling – not what anyone would consider easy on the feet or any other body […]

Keen Utility Tacoma Work Boots

If your work involves being on your feet, then you have to protect them. That’s Keen Utility’s business and the Keen Utility Tacoma Work Boots series was designed to do just that.

Keen Atlanta Cool ESD Soft Toe

Keen Utility Atlanta Cool ESD Soft Toe Work Shoe

Finding the right balance of work shoe comfort and ruggedness isn’t easy. As Family Construction Coordinators for the self-help non-profit Florida Home Partnership, my colleague Gaspar and I find ourselves replacing our footwear often after a few weeks’ or months’ wear and tear. From sneakers to Wellington-style boots and everything in between, we’re always on the lookout for the […]

Keen Omaha Work Boot - Men's Mid

Keen Omaha Work Boots Review

OMAHA! Seeeeeeet, hike! Okay, I couldn’t help myself. Omaha brings with it (for me) visions of a Peyton Manning Super Bowl. I first set eyes on the Keen Omaha Work Boots at a World of Concrete event. While they don’t really have anything to do with football, they are light enough to wear for a […]

2016 World of Concrete show

2016 World of Concrete Trade Show Coverage

The 2016 World of Concrete trade show was once again held in Las Vegas—only this year it decided to freeze out attendees with gusts of wind and chilly temperatures that hung in the 30s. Even with the weather, attendance was high, giving testimony to the fact that both home and commercial construction is up, and manufacturers […]

Keen Utility Braddock boots crouch

Keen Utility Braddock Boots Review

The first time I walked around on a jobsite without good quality work boots I lifted up my foot only to find a small piece of nail-embedded wood attached. Fortunately, the nail had penetrated the sole only to the point of touching my foot. It didn’t break the skin—but it got my attention. Wearing work […]

Keen Manufacturing and Factory Tour Experience

It isn’t often that I get to take an inside look at a company as uniquely infused by its principles and hometown as Keen Footwear. Recently, I had the opportunity to attend Keen Utility’s inaugural media event at its headquarters in Portland, Oregon. I experienced how their commitment to quality, innovation, stewardship, and philanthropy permeate […]
