San Jose Wedge Work Boots
You’re on your feet moving across hard surfaces all day long. Whether you’re in a warehouse, on a construction site, or in a manufacturing facility, the last thing you need is sore, tired feet to distract you from the job at hand. Ideal for working day-in and day-out on concrete slabs, wood subfloors, and compacted dirt, the San Jose work boots combine a lightweight sneaker feel with a stable wedge sole and the cushioning you need to get you through long days in stride.
Every job is a little different, so the KEEN San Jose work boots are available with a variety of features. You can choose between a traditional soft toe boot, our lightweight aluminum safety toe, and between a waterproof or traditional leather upper. Regardless of your preference, all KEEN San Jose boots feature the all-day support of an air-infused KEEN Luftcell midsole and the stability of a wedge work boot. Their lightweight feel and rugged durability make them a favorite of carpenters, electricians, plumbers, warehouse workers, and landscapers.
Why Choose a Wedge Sole?
In a word, wedge work boots are about stability. Their flat sole distributes your weight evenly across the whole outsole and makes for a smooth stride and confident footing. Ready for light- to medium-duty work environments and overtime hours, our San Jose work boot series for men and women offer the lightweight feel of sneakers with the performance of and stability of wedge work boots. One of the lightest work boots we make, they pair a wedge sole with a nylon shank for midfoot support and our KEEN Luftcell midsole cushioning for reduced fatigue over long hours going up and down stairs or standing on concrete. A durable leather upper and clean appearance make them a popular choice for weekend wear too.
Aluminum Safety Toes Add Protection with Minimal Weight
Prefer a safety toe? The men’s and women’s San Jose wedge sole work boots are available with our asymmetrical aluminum safety toes. The low-profile aluminum toes weigh 30% less than on our steel toe models, and the asymmetrical shape creates a roomy toe box designed to match the shape of your foot. Combined with an overall lightweight, cushioned feel and slip-resistant rubber outsole, the San Jose boots are an excellent choice for residential construction, landscape jobs, and light-duty manufacturing work.
Not every job requires a full 6” work boot. When you need the functionality of a safety toe, but prefer the lightweight feel of a shoe, the San Jose Oxford shoes for men bridge the gap. They combine the everyday feel of a low-cut shoe with the stability of a wedge sole and the protection of an aluminum safety toe that lets you move from office to factory floor without changing your shoes.

“The absolute best pair of ladies work boots I’ve ever purchased. Didn’t need any time to break them in. They were comfy from the moment I put them on. Great quality too!” — Kristin
“They are the most comfortable work boots I’ve ever had. I am an electrician in the solar industry. So, I’m rough on my boots and I need a sneaker feel for working on the roof. These boots feel sturdy and light at the same time. Best balance I’ve found between boot and sneaker. They also are very sticky, so walking on glass or slippery surfaces, I feel very stable.” — Levi
A Waterproof Upper Keeps Your Feet Dry
When your work has you outside no matter the weather, KEEN San Jose boots are available in a waterproof version that’s ready for wet jobsites and unpredictable forecasts. The KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane keeps water out while a siped outsole quickly disperses liquids for increased traction on slick surfaces.

“I've had these boots for 13 months now. I work in a warehouse that's half inside and half outside. I take about 20,000 steps a day. No complaints from me at all. Fit is great. Not too narrow. Feet are not sore and hurting. Never get wet. Safety toe has been more than helpful. I would buy again. They are holding up very well so far. Tread on bottom still good. Laces good. Good quality product in my opinion. Thanks for a great pair of boots! — Mike M.
“My new favorite boots. I do landscaping, and I get my boots soaking wet inside and out. I have had no problems with them in over a year. I will buy another pair when needed.” — Darryl
