Men's DETROIT 8" Waterproof (Soft Toe)

$160.00

  • Style #1017816
  • Fit Guide
Please choose a size!

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 work in excavation and earth moving heavey equipment. These boots have have been covered in mud, water, and ice. After several months of use these boots are still dry and comfortable. True to fit/size. I would highly recommend this boot. Light weight and tuff.

    Comments about KEEN Men's DETROIT 8" Waterproof (Soft Toe):

    I am on my feet 6 days a week 10 hours a day and no issues at all. Comfortable and warm all day from beginning to end. I am a keen customer for life now. Was skeptic at first if they would be comfortable but no issues at all. I recommend anyone to buy these boots and feel the difference

    Work in a shop, and out in the field. I really like your products and this most recent pair of boots were actually fully warrantied from a previous set. Which I really appreciate!
    One thing I might would tweak is the protective toe. Where it adheres to the leather causes a lip that snags and trips me up in my line of work. Ideally if that could be more seamless it would be awesome for me.
    Great boots, I've owned 4 pair.

    Transitioning from traditional style boots

    Comments about KEEN Men's DETROIT 8" Waterproof (Soft Toe):

    It's early on but I purchased Keens after an Achilles tendon injury at work. I deliver packages for a living and I'm always on my feet. I'm transitioning from a traditional style boot to these. Much much lighter and more flexible than I have ever worn. Also seems to support my Arch and entire foot better. I will test them out as hard as anyone this year in every condition imaginable. We shall see if they hold up.
