This work boot offers steel-toe protection, stability and a slip-resistant sole, so you can focus on your work. It's comfortable and durable, and the height is ideal for demanding jobs that need more coverage.

  • Contoured heel lock
  • KEEN.Dry waterproof breathable membrane
  • Left and right asymmetrical steel toe
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM F2412-11 and F2413-11 I/75 C/75 EH standards

    Great Boot, but....

    By 

    from Yakima, WA

    Comments about Men's Detroit 8" (Steel Toe):

    Overall this is a great boot. Except a few things. The sole started to seperate slightly, but I was more disappointed that the laces did not last 6 months and the "eyelet" broke on one lacing point. Now a almost a year I cannot find my receipt to look into replacement.

    However, I have no problem buying these boots again. They are literally the most comfortable boot ever.

    My favorite work boot hands down

    By

    Comments about Men's Detroit 8" (Steel Toe):

    I call on a home improvement retailer on a daily basis. This means I am on concrete flooring for over ten hours a day. These provide ample support and shock absorption which is key if you work on concrete floors. I would definitely recommend these in this type of environment.

    Impressed so far

    Comments about KEEN Men's Detroit 8" (Steel Toe):

    I had never heard of Keen boots, but I have been looking for a boot that lasts more then 6 months. I am a truck driver and for some reason every boot I have bought in the last 13 years has not fared well. I am very impressed with the Detroit so far, there is no break in period; like others have said. Hopefully in a year, I can give a good update.

    Good boots!

    Comments about KEEN Men's Detroit 8" (Steel Toe):

    Love my KEEN boots, they are warm, fit well, rugged. My only gripe is the tongue does not come up high enough and the laces tend to cut into my shin. If the tongue were about an inch longer/taller, I would rate these 5 stars!

    Habitat Maintenance Work

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about KEEN Men's Detroit 8" (Steel Toe):

    I like the form of these boots. I can put them on without having to hold the tongue open because the shape holds itself. However, this shaped design can also cause sore spots on my foot because it doesn't have the give of some of my other safety-toe work boots. I find the heel piece and the toe piece sometimes cause blisters even with thick wool socks. I am happy with the weight and the waterproofing. I love the height. I work in habitat maintenance where I have to hike over rough terrain while carrying equipment and dragging brush. Walking thorough water and working in the rain are not uncomfortable in these boots. I love the way the laces of these boots stay put in their hooks. Even if the laces come untied, the boots do not loosen.

    I work in the Pulp and Pa

    Comments about KEEN Men's Detroit 8" (Steel Toe):

    I work in the Pulp and Paper Industry. I'm an electrical/instrumentation tech. I work inside/outside all year long. These boots are the best I've ever had. They are comfortable from the first time I put them on. No break in period. Right before I bought these, I purchased a pair of Redwings and wore them maybe two weeks. They are still sitting in the closet. That's been over a year ago now. They aren't as comfortable as the Keens and they weigh a ton. The keens feel like tennis shoes in weight and comfort. Getting ready to buy a pair of Minot insulated boots for the winter. These boots are holding up well. I've worn Timberlands, Wolverines, Redwings, Lacrosse, and Rockys. The Lacrosse boots would be my second choice.
