Loading pallets, repairing factory machinery, or assembling pre-fab electrical panels; not all jobs require bulky, high-top work boots. Designed for the demands of light industrial work, our collection of women’s KEEN Utility work shoes have the protection and reliability required to get jobs done, but with the fit and support of sneakers.
Hard-working tradeswomen deal with slick floors, uneven ground, and wet surfaces daily. That’s why our women’s work shoes come standard with an oil- and slip-resistant, EH-rated rubber outsole that’s Mark II and SATRA-certified. To keep your feet protected and feeling good on the job, KEEN Utility work shoes have asymmetrical toe protection engineered specifically for your left and right foot. Whether you go with a KEEN.PROTECT soft toe to safeguard against minor impact or a steel, aluminum, or carbon-fiber safety toe for protection against heavy impact, it’s easy to find the right level of safety for your jobsite.
Built for a woman's foot
Designed to support the biomechanics and unique foot structure of women’s feet, all of our women’s work shoes have a snugger heel and a more spacious toe box. To ensure our footwear is meeting and exceeding the rigors of hard work, it’s wear-tested by women across multiple trades and backgrounds. When you see our Tradeswomen Tested logo, you’re seeing a stamp of approval from hard-working women just like you.
