    5.11 ATAC STORM 8" (lace up with side zip)

    These make a great summer boot. Light weight. Waterproof.

    Most comfortable boots I've owned.

    Those are the Detroit Mid, needless to say I've contacted KEEN and the ball is in their court.
    Currently looking into some new footwear for work. God I HATE shopping for work shoes!

    That's odd. My Kleen soles seam to hold up well for 1.5 years usually.

    It's not just the soles, the side of the shoes blew out you can see it in the first 2 pics.

    My Keen boots are a year and a half old and just are starting to wear like that on the bottom. And they're exposed to all kinds of chemicals due to the work environment I am in everyday. So many i cannot list them all, but the major one being sodium hypocholrite. Or in other words, the real bleach lol

    Before we work on artificial intelligence why don't we do something about natural stupidity?

    I know that I'm pretty rough on shoes, but those Keens didn't see any chemicals other than water.
    Keen told me to fill out the warranty claim form so they can process the warranty.
    I do like their shoes and will probably get another pair or 2 in the future.

    I only expect a year out of a pair of boots, no matter what I paid for them the ear prior. If they last me more than a year.... then I had a light year

    First off I hate buying boots. Sometimes it could be a half day affair. Just ask my wife. I look for steel toe and waterproof. Insulated in winter. I could never buy a pair of boots on line because I am so picky on how they fit. When I buy boots I usually walk around store for a half hour to make sure they do not hurt. Found a pair of Keens at Dicks Sporting Goods and walk for a while. Bought them on the recommendation from this site. First pair I ever seen. My first day wearing them my feet hurt so bad I had to go bootless in work. They were waterproof so the tongue joint was rubbing into my ankle and caused bruises on both feet. I had to put insulation in both boots to stop it. Still have and wear them. Not sure they will be my next purchase.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    I posted in this thread back in February that most of my younger guys were going to Keens and that they all liked them. After 7 months, most of them are complaining about the boots falling apart at the seams. I almost bought a pair this summer as it was time to replace my Red Wing 608's, but when I got to the store, I decided to just go with another pair of Red Wings. Now I am glad. I have a summer pair of 608 uninsulated and a winter pair of 1412 insulated. I usually get two years out of each pair, alternating buying a pair every other year.

    They are expensive, but they last longer than anything else, they are made in the US, and they fit my feet. Glad I didn't decide to change.

    I'd still also recommend keen to anyone. Most comfortable reliable work shoe I've ever owned.
