Men's DETROIT 8" Waterproof (Soft Toe)

$160.00 - $175.00

  • Style #1017816
  • Fit Guide
Please choose a size!

The Detroit 8” (Soft Toe) is a high collared work horse work boot. Made from waterproof nubuck leather with a KEEN.Dry waterproof breathable membrane, this construction boot will keep you dry out in the field or at a rain drenched work site.

  • Contoured heel lock
  • KEEN.Dry™ waterproof breathable membrane
  • Left and right asymmetrical steel toe
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM F2412-11 and F2413-11 I/75 C/75 EH standards
  • Reflective webbing for additional safety
  • Torsional Stability Shank (TSS)
  • CLEANSPORT NXT™ for natural odor protection

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.

  • KEEN.Dry
    A proprietary waterproof, breathable membrane that lets vapor out without letting water in.
  • Metatomical Footbed Design
    This internal support mechanism is anatomically engineered to provide excellent arch support and cradle the natural contours of the foot.
  • KEEN.Protect
    Can a sandal protect your toes? The answer is yes. The reason is KEEN Patented Toe Protection where the shoe outsoles wrap up and over the toes for ultimate protection.
  • Left and Right Asymmetrical Safety Toe
    Uniquely anatomically correct steel, aluminum, & composite toe designs provide a roomier toe box and maximum comfort. Meets ASTM F2412-11 and F2413-11 I/75 and C/75 Standards.

    Comments about KEEN Men's DETROIT 8" Waterproof (Soft Toe):

    Have not bought this boot yet but love the looks. Wondering if anything has been done to help with the foot bed odor of the keen line. I have a pair of hikers that I store in the garage do to the smell. None of ,my other boots or shoes do so I know it's not me.
