  • Style #1011242
  • Fit Guide
Please choose a size!

This steel-toe work boot boasts out-of-the-box comfort, with a spacious toe box and added cushioning at the heel. Waterproofing makes it an all-weather option, designed for medium to heavy-duty jobs.

  • American Built with materials from around the world.
  • Integrated PU heel cushion
  • KEEN.Dry waterproof breathable membrane
  • Left and right asymmetrical steel toe
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM F1677-96 Mark II non-slip testing standards

We've carefully selected leather uppers designed to last. Then again, if you're wearing your KEENs daily, they won't always be scuff and dirt-free. To treat day to day wear and tear, especially on lighter color leathers, we recommend using a leather cleaner and conditioner, found at most footwear dealers and/or shoe repair shops.

    My Town buys boots for us every year. We get to go to a local store and pick a pair out of a handful of options. A few years back I got a competitors pair and loved them...until my foot kept going numb. It got so bad I had to go to a podiatrist. I found out I am a supinator and the roll of my foot was damaging a nerve in my pinky toe. I was told to watch what I wear for footwear and don't go barefoot. I immediately stopped wearing my boots. I wore sneakers in the office and put boots on only when I went in the field and I suffered when I did.

    Well, this year was a pleasant surprise. Every year the choices did not fit what was suggested for boots for me. A good foot bed. Supportive. Flexible without a steel shaft. And meeting the Town requirements of slip resistant, steel toe, and waterproof. This year, your Braddock Mid WP was offered and because of the shaft with a little give in it I thought I would give it a chance. Hooray!

    I've been wearing the boots all day, every day. Even with my standing desk, my feet feel great!. The boots are extremely comfortable and so far appear to be durable. My feet are warm and dry in the swamps searching for stormwater pipe ends. My feet are happy walking around the DPW hallways and offices too. And Made in America is VERY important to me, I am so happy for this fact. I hope they offer these boots next year too, if they do I will be getting them, if they don't I will be asking them to substitute!

    My feet thank you Keen!

    I work in turf management where being exposed to inclement weather, and wet grass is a regular occurrence. Unfortunately, these boots are far from waterproof. Any substantial wetness for more than brief period, and my feet are soaked. For the money I spent for these I'd expect them to work as advertised. I'm not sure what is happening with Keen products but the quality, comfort, and fit has really gone down hill. You used to get an extra set of laces with their products but that is no longer the case. After contacting costumer service for a spare matching set for these boots, I was told they would ship them to me leaving me with a glimmer of hope. I never received the laces and it's been over 2 months. Speaking of the laces, they don't stay tied, even when I tie a double knot. Absolutely unacceptable quality for the price. Disappointing, but unfortunately in this day and age of clueless corporate mentalities not unexpected. You've lost a very loyal customer.

      Comfort is good and I was happy to find a "built" in the USA product. However after about a year the side split out right where the leather meets the sole. I have had other Keen shoes and was disappointed in this defect as I have not had problems with their other shoes or any other name brand boots for that matter and I am by no mean's hard on footwear.

      I have been wearing Keen boots for 5 years now, several different styles, and without fail they are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. Grew up on a farm, worked construction, Navy, Merchant Marine, and back to construction I have been wearing work boots for 40 years and the last 5 have been the best. i really like this particular style.

      and the customer service is also top notch.

      now if we could just get them to make a hunting boot........
