Keen Utility continues its approach to providing safety work boots that also appeal to outdoor enthusiasts with an active lifestyle with the Braddock work boot, part of Keen’s new fall line.

Assembled in the company’s Portland, Oregon factory, the Braddock has a hybrid design that combines an hiking boot-inspired look with the safety features and construction of a tough work boot.

The boot has a direct-attach outsole with a PU-injected midsole that will not compact over time, providing long-term cushioning. The boot’s full-grain waterproof leather upper has a KEEN.Dry waterproof breathable membrane as well as hydrophobic, hydrophilic 2-Zone Comfort technology, which provides breathability and helps to keep feet dry.

The boot also provides ASTM-rated protection via KEEN.Utility asymmetrical steel toes, but with a streamlined, lightweight toe cap. The Braddock is available in mid and low styles.
