New American built Work Boot from KEEN Utility offers revolutionary abrasion resistance
Assembled in KEEN’s Portland, Oregon manufacturing facility using responsibly sourced materials from around the world, KEEN Utility’s Dearborn is a standout introduction that can handle the same tasks as a leather boot and then some. The medium-duty boot features KEEN.FLEXARMOR, an innovative upper material that is a lightweight, ultrastrong seamless woven textile with more abrasion resistance than leather.
Combined with a KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane and an air-injected Luftcell midsole, the Dearborn provides lasting comfort without sacrificing safety. In addition to a heat-resistant rubber outsole, a KonnectFit heel-capture system provides a locked-in feel, while non-metallic and asymmetrical carbon-fiber safety toes provide a roomier, unobtrusive fit, 15% lighter than steel. Built for both indoor and outdoor terrain, the Dearborn is EH-rated with an oil- and slip-resistant non-marking rubber outsole. KEEN Utility’s Dearborn will be available online and in select retailers.
