This is the 3rd pair of Keen work boots I have owned, the last 2 pair were the Oshawa mid steel toe. I love Keen products, with that said these boots are just ok. I dont mind the color as I get mistaken for a guy all the time on my work sites. I find them to be lacking in the waterproofing, when I get the slightest moisture on them it seems to work its way through quickly. I like the thread/grip much better on this style, but they are very slippery, maybe the next style you could incorporate vibram or some other kind of grip material. I also find the leather very stiff, it took many months to break them in. I do love the aluminum toe, makes for a much lighter boot, please keep making them with the composite material. Overall these boots are a good product, just need a couple small changes. I also agree with the other review on this site, we need more options for women's safety boots. Keep making great products and we will keep buying them.
