Please choose a size! Please choose an inseam!

The Detroit 8” (Soft Toe) is a high collared work horse work boot. Made from waterproof nubuck leather with a KEEN.Dry waterproof breathable membrane, this construction boot will keep you dry out in the field or at a rain drenched work site.

  • Contoured heel lock
  • KEEN.Dry waterproof breathable membrane
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM F2412-11 and F2413-11 I/75 C/75 EH standards
  • Reflective webbing for additional safety
  • Torsional Stability Shank (TSS)
  • 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.

  • I would buy again and again

    I purchased these boots for working on farm. They are very supportive, comfortable and roomy, size 13 D. Keen footwear is rhe best in my book and I now have happy feet.

    I've bought worse boots at higher prices

    I wear them everyday as an agronomist walking through crop fields that are either dry, dusty, dirt or wet, muddy, slop. They keep my feet dry through the dewy mornings and the 8" tall tops keep me from rolling my ankles on the uneven fields. When the crop is out and fall is here I where them through the grass fields for hunting and to the lake to fish. They really are the best all year, all purpose boot for anything outdoors. I've spent more money on other boots and have not been this satisfied with the quality and mostly comfort. There is virtually no break in period and last longer than any other boot I've purchased. Great product.

    Bought these just for hiking and the ankle support they provide. All I can say is "AWESOME"!!! These are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned! Have now hiked nineteen miles and can't wait to go some more.

    Not sure

    I bought these works boots mostly because they are made here in the USA. I've worn the same brand work boot for 8 yrs until now. Unfortunately, since i've had these my legs have been killing me. I hope it's just taking some time for my legs to adjust to a new boot, it's only been a couple of weeks, i just dunno.

    I bought the first version of these boots almost 5 years ago (2013ish) and have used/abused them. They're great for back packing, extended hikes, and I know most people won't like me saying this, but for hunting as well. I have friends who spend multiple hundreds of dollars on fancy brand hunting/mountain boots and I have outhiked them all in these bad boys. Just coming back for pair 2.0!

    I would buy these boots again

    Its light, and comfortable right out of the box. My feet are wide, I aim for 4e or extra extra wide. As wide as I can find. These boots just have regular, and wide. A Keen Wide fits a 4e carolina, or redwing. It's only been 2 weeks since I purchased them, but these are a fantastic pair of boots.

    Walked through some water this week, in the woods cutting firewood, feet stayed dry. Very comfortable. Breaking them in for Bear hunting this fall.
