Keen Detroit Mid Waterproof Soft Toe Boot

The Keen Detroit Mid Waterproof Boot has a medium profile and lots of extras that make it comfortable all day, every day. A Nubuck leather upper teamed with the KEEN.DRY™ waterproof breathable membrane keeps feet dry while the oil/slip resistant outsole provides traction and is non-marking. This boot also features a contoured heel lock, Dry-lex footwear lining with hydrophobic/hydrophilic 2-zone comfort technology, dual density compression molded EVA midsole and torsion stability ESS shank. Keen also added reflective webbing for additional safety on and off the job. When work means being on the move – here’s the boot that keeps up. The flexible soft toe construction is great for ladder climbers, landscapers and manufacturing. Supportive and stable, these Detroits aren't afraid of overtime.

Keen employs a variety of original tech ideas to bring us a shoe that lasts. Here are some key terms you should be familiar with.


A proprietary waterproof, breathable membrane that lets vapor out without letting water in.

This internal support mechanism is anatomically engineered to provide excellent arch support and cradle the natural contours of the foot.

Can a sandal protect your toes? The answer is yes. The reason is KEEN Patented Toe Protection where the shoe outsoles wrap up and over the toes for ultimate protection.

Our oil and slip resistant outsoles meet or exceed ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) F1677-96 MARK II non-slip testing standards.

Uniquely anatomically correct steel, aluminum, & composite toe designs provide a roomier toe box and maximum comfort. Meets ASTM F2412-11 and F2413-11 I/75 and C/75 Standards.

Care for Waterproof Leather
KEEN has carefully selected leather uppers designed to last. Then again, if you're wearing your KEENS daily, they won't always be scuff and dirt-free. To treat day to day wear and tear, especially on lighter color leathers, we recommend using a leather cleaner and conditioner, both of which we stock. Try Obenauf’s Heavy Duty Leather Preservative, Leather Oil, and Water Shield.
