Soft Toe Work Boots and Shoes
A busy shift or extra overtime hours shouldn’t mean uncomfortable feet at the end of the day. From warehouse floors to backcountry research sites, our KEEN Utility soft toe work boots and shoes are built for long-lasting wearability and on-the-job safety.
Our men’s and women’s soft toe work boots and shoes are built to keep feet protected against minor impacts with left and right asymmetrical KEEN.PROTECT soft toes. They come standard with an electrical hazard (EH)-rated, oil- and slip-resistant outsole for surefootedness on slick metal decking, rocky pathways, and everything in between. And since every job is a little different, we offer a range of durable footwear to tackle all of them.
Fit to work hard
KEEN Utility shoes and boots have a fit made specifically for the work environment. We adapted our popular hiker fit (a spacious toe box, a contoured arch, and a snug heel cup) to create pro-grade work boots with a long-lasting supportive feel. The snug heel cup keeps your heel secure as you move. The roomy toe box gives toes room to spread out and flex naturally.
Our women’s boots are Tradeswomen Tested
Over the years we’ve heard from lots of hard-working tradeswomen that wearing men’s boots on the job is uncomfortable and feels unsafe. Since safety is key to a reliable work boot, our women's-specific footwear has a fit that supports the unique foot structure and biomechanics of women’s feet. Wherever you see our Tradeswomen Tested Series logo, you know hard-working women wear-tested the product and approved it for the rigors of their work.
