Men's Detroit Mid (Soft Toe)

$145.00

  • Style #1007009
  • Fit Tip: Most customers find this style is true to size! Fit Guide
Please choose a size!

When work means being on the move, here's a soft-toe safety boot that keeps up. It's supportive and stable, with a slip-resistant sole. Dual-density cushioning adds comfort that never quits.

  • Contoured heel lock
  • KEEN.Dry waterproof breathable membrane
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM F2892-11 EH Standards
  • Reflective webbing for additional safety
  • Torsional Stability Shank (TSS)
  • Waterproof nubuck leather upper

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.

Flexible comfort in a waterproof work boot.

  • When work means being on the move, here's a soft-toe safety boot that keeps up. It's supportive and stable, with a slip-resistant sole. Dual-density cushioning adds comfort that never quits.
  • 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.

    Great shoe. Myself and a couple of partners bought them in the black just before they stopped making them. Contacted customer service and they told me they were really pushing for a black service boot but couldn't get any commitment. They have several that are close but just off enough to not work. Not sure why they can't just make the black Detroit. Seems like the demand is there. Maybe Keen doesn't want their boots associated as a service boot. Does not make sense unless they are afraid a public safety application (cops) might create a stigma. Too bad. Like the shoes, wear them all the time, but time to move on. Several other companies make comfortable, quality boots for service use.

    Pros

    • Comfortable​
    • Tough

    Cons

    • HARD​ to find​

    Best Uses

    • Law Enforcement​

    When I saw Keen was making a duty boots in black for law enforcement I was super excited as I already owned a pair of their hiking boots. I searched everywhere for them with no luck. Uniform places couldn't get them and keen dealers couldn't get them. I finally gave up. After about a year I was able to get a pair of Detroit in night (black). I love them. Going on 2 years now. Please bring them back for law enforcement!!! We need them in black!!!
