A Work Boot Like You’ve Never Seen Before

Written by:

Whilst durability is a key component of any shoe worth wearing, it is paramount for the tradesperson who is on the tools daily.

In the making of the Men’s Detroit Mid-Steel Toe Work Boot, Keen set out to reinvent the humble work boot. A union of the thoughtful craftsmanship often associated with outdoor and adventure gear, and the toughness and practicality of workwear design principle, the Detroit Boot is a work boot like you’ve never seen before.

Boasting an oil and slip-resistant non-marking rubber outsole, the Detroit Boot is geared to ensure safety on site in the event of spillage or when faced with wet working conditions.

For further resistance against the elements, both natural and work-related, the Detroit Boot features a waterproof NUBUCK leather upper for total comfort and dryness. Coupled with the renown Keen.Dry waterproof breathable membrane, this boot ensures a dry foot and prevents undue sweating.

Avoiding a twisted or broken ankle when things go wrong is crucial. Be it a slip-up on the roof or an unsteady scaffold, the Detroit Boot’s durable contoured heel lock will support and protect. Coupled with asymmetrical steel toes to minimise the harm done by falling objects or sudden compression, the Detroit Boot is just as important as your toolbox.


Capped off by a dual density compression moulded EVA midsole for better support of the arch and torsional stability ESS shank for further reduced fatigue in your calf and foot, the Keen Men’s Detroit Mid-Steel Toe Work Boot is unlike anything you’ve seen before on-site or in the shop.
