Moving mulch. Framing up an addition. Logging miles between deliveries. Breathable boots are essential for cool, dry feet when your job keeps you working outdoors on hot summer days. Our KEEN Utility Roswell work boot collection combines breathable canvas construction with a unique fold-over collar that lets you adapt to changing jobsite conditions and workday demands.
Built on our KEEN.ReGEN cushioning with a multipurpose lugged outsole, the Roswell canvas work boot lets you walk confidently across mixed surfaces and uneven ground. It’s a solid choice for landscaping, carpentry, roofing, trucking, or any time you need light- to medium-duty work boots for warm-weather work.
KEEN Utility safety features like lightweight, asymmetrical carbon-fiber safety toes and an electrical hazard (EH)-rated outsole make them a good choice for construction site work.
“The canvas construction and air vents provide a cooler feeling than all-leather construction … I found the collar comfortable both up and folded over.” —Jeff
Hardworking and Adaptable
When the day starts off cool but is sure to heat up, the Roswell’s fold-down cuff lets you adapt to changing conditions. Lace it up for full ankle support on ladders, uneven ground, or for carrying heavy loads. Fold it down to beat the heat and enjoy more flexibility for lighter-duty work. Combined with the breathable canvas upper, the fold-over design gives your feet extra room to breathe and vent. The result is cool, dry feet, all day long. Add our probiotic-based footbed technology that uses enzyme-producing microbes to break down odors, and the Roswell canvas work boot is the logical choice for daily wear in warm weather.
50% More Energy Return with Every Step
Constant motion comes with the job. So does moving heavy loads. The Roswell boots are made with KEEN.ReGEN cushioning, which delivers 50% more energy return with every step than a traditional EVA foam midsole. That means each step you take fuels the next one, which conserves your energy during long days. KEEN.ReGEN also resists compression over time, so the boots offer that same great energized feel every time you put them on.
Safety for the Jobsite
Handling power tools, moving heavy materials, and using power equipment can be dangerous work, so the Roswell boot features multiple KEEN Utility safety features, including carbon-fiber safety toes, a 90-degree heel, and an electrical hazard (EH)-rated outsole.
The carbon-fiber safety toes feature a non-metallic, reinforced build and an asymmetrical design with a left- and right-specific shape that creates a better fit than a traditional safety-toe construction. The carbon-fiber toes are also 15% lighter than steel toes, which means every step takes a little less energy. Combined with the canvas upper and KEEN.ReGEN cushioning, energized and light on your feet from clock-in to clock-out.
The electrical hazard (EH)-rating is well-suited to carpentry work and jobs where you’re working with multiple extension cords and are around exposed wiring. It provides a secondary source of protection and reduces the potential for electrical shock should the outsole come in contact with a live electrical circuit.
Support When You Need It
Some days are all about moving supplies and climbing up and down ladders. The Roswell’s fold-over design lets you dial in the fit to match your work. When you need the extra support of an 8-inch cuff, lace up the Roswell’s collar for the traditional ankle support of a full-height work boot. Combined with an oil- and slip-resistant lugged outsole, the Roswell provides confident footing on newly excavated ground, plywood subfloors, ladders, and warehouse concrete alike.
Adaptability for Light- and Medium-Duty Work
When it comes to adapting to varied jobsite demands and changing temperatures, the Roswell is one of our most versatile KEEN Utility boots. Lace it up or fold it down to match the conditions and task at hand. It’s the breathable canvas work boot with a fold-over cuff that you can wear all summer long.
