Keen Work Boots for Men – Comfort of Hiking Boots


Did you know that Keen is famous for hiking boots and shoes? But this is not all, they build them for work too, so here you have them, Keen Work Boots for Men, their bestsellers.

They write on their site that they make footwear to make a difference, and also that they want to leave the world as a better place then it was before them. By this, they try to reduce the impact on nature. This implies many things, like ensuring that the materials used are safe for users, and for the environment. They claim that currently, they are over 95% PFC-free. If you did not know, the PFC means Perfluorinated Chemicals, and these are used by some manufacturers to repel water in footwear.

Keen uses environmentally preferred leather, so according to their statement, over 95% of the leather they use comes from tanneries that are certified by the Leather Working Group that audits tanneries for environmental performance in the areas like chemical and waste management, energy use, air emissions, water treatment, etc.

They use Cleansport NXT stuff which is based on probiotic-based technology that produces enzymes that break down odor in sweat. So this is a natural alternative without heavy metals, hazardous chemical, and volatile organic compounds.

So knowing this, you might look at these bestselling Keen work boots for men below from a different perspective.


Why buying Keen

The Keen utility boots are made to grip in a variety of terrains and, as they claim, their outsoles meet or exceed ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) F1677-96 MARK II non-slip testing standards.

You might want to know that some of their work boots also meet or exceed ASTM F2412-11 & F2413-11/75 C/75 Electrical Hazard standards.

They write that they bring the comfort and fit of a hiking boot into their work boots. I would take this as granted, I do use their hiking boots and they are among the best.

So here are the types and features of work boots which Keen makes:

  • Steel Toe Safety Boots.
  • Electric Hazard Boots.
  • Non-Slip & Oil-Resistant Boots.
  • Waterproof/Weatherproof Boots.
  • Puncture-Plated Outsole Boots.
  • Metatarsal-Guard Boots.
