Every worker has the same goal when it comes to work wear. Find something that protects your feet, but it has to be comfortable for all day wear. Well let me introduce you to KEEN Utility footwear. Now before they contacted us, I had never heard of this company and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from them. I ended up getting the Braddock Low workbook and Dan got the Flint Low work boot. Both are low shoes and both have a steel toe.
When Dan first gave me the shoes, I thought they were a little heavy and knew right away I wouldn’t like them. However he insisted I put them on and wear them around. After all, he was wearing his for about a week and was raving about them. I have to say that these shoes are great. While I thought they would be heavy and I would feel that after a couple of hours of use, they turned out to be nice and not heavy. For a full day I was walking around on concrete, well doing a lot of standing. Normally my feet will kill at the end of the day after being on concrete. With these shoes, my feet, my knees, my hips and my back were all feeling good. Now I know I am raving about these shoes, so I want to let you know we didn’t get paid by Keen, I just love these shoes. It’s a company I had never heard of before and my only regret is we didn’t discover them earlier.
I am not going to go into all the features because Keen offers a wide variety of work boots like oil resistant, steel toe and more. However I do want to tell you that next to my Columbia work boots, these are the most comfortable boots I have worn and I have been through a lot of different brands over the years.
