Men's AUSTIN Waterproof Mid

$140.00 $89.99

  • Style #1017412
  • Fit Guide
Please choose a size!

This long-time favorite gets a new look as a lace-up boot. But it's still as comfortable as ever, with a rich leather lining and cushioned, compression-molded midsole. Tongue gussets help keep debris at bay.

  • Seam-sealed waterproof protection for dry comfort
  • Tongue gussets help repel outside elements
  • Rich leather footbed cover for premium comfort
  • Cleansport NXT™ for natural odor control

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.

    Comments about KEEN Men's AUSTIN Waterproof Mid:

    I've been wearing Keen shoes, boots and sandals since about 2004. So few of the recent products have what I consider to be the "traditional" Keen fit, with a wide toe box that lets my toes spread out. This fit is the reason that I have been such a loyal customer over the years.

    The Austin shoe is my go-to casual, everyday shoe for almost any activity. The Austin Mid is even better, and the fact that it's waterproof makes it an easy choice for Portland, Oregon winters. I love the comfortable fit and easy styling. Most of your other boot offerings are too technical looking for me to want to wear them off the hiking trail.

    I bought a pair in October and loved them so much that I wanted to pick up a second pair. Unfortunately, it looks like you've already discontinued this style and have nothing left in black. Please don't take these out of your lineup. I would love to see more colors too, maybe a grey or dark green.

    Comments about KEEN Men's AUSTIN Waterproof Mid:

    These are my third pair of Keen Mid high shoes. and my second pair of the Austin. the first pair I love, so I did it, just ordered another pair! haven't even opened the yellow package wrapper yet. Probably should to to make sure what is inside is correct. These I believe were advertised as somewhat of a throw back design or at least newly designed to resemble a past model. I never wore the past model, these are nice all leather with the special insole, kinda smooth. works great for me. Ordered the same size as the other two models, 9.5 Mens. I really like wearing all my Keens. But truthfully, I should Un-Subscribe from the Keen Up-date emails. Fortunately my middle name initial is E. So when my closet fills full of Keens I can change my name to Emelda. I'm sure Imelda would never wear a pair of Keens....or would she?

    I love them, very comfortable since the beginning.
    Very good quality pair of shoes.
    The only problem was the leashes, not long enough I'm going to have to buy a pair.
    Should be a 5 stars but details matters.

    Comments about Men's AUSTIN Waterproof Mid:

    I love how Keen's are broke in as soon as you put them on. I've owned these about a month and they are very comfortable. My only concern is the crease in the leather right behind the toe box but so far no cracking. I have not tested the waterproof but if they are like all my other waterproof shoes from Keen they should be just fine.

    Comments about Men's AUSTIN Waterproof Mid:

    Breaking these in slowly for a vacation walk about. So far very comfortable. A little more formal than my last pair of Keens which I found quite stylish but which my wife sometimes referred to as my "clown shoes". As noted in another review there is no heel loop for pull up. I'll get used to that.

    Comments about KEEN Men's AUSTIN Waterproof Mid:

    I'm on my feet all day so need a comfortable shoe. I've worn the Austin shoes for years with absolutely no issues. Unfortunately when I went to order a new pair they didn't have my size in black. These were on sale for the same price as the shoe. They are stiff out of box. The laces are ridiculously short where I can't even do the top hook eyes. Very comfortable, even without breaking them in. The down side for someone who wears a uniform, is that the shoe is a non polishing black, similar to suede. Also the side of the sole is two toned black/grey. A completely black, polishing leather would be an awesome option. They are very slippery on ice and if you're coming in from the rain going to a tiled surface.
