Built upon the popular KEEN Targhee last, the KEEN Portland Puncture Resistant 6" work boot is in it for the long haul. This rugged men's ankle boot takes on the likes of heavy-duty construction or waste-management jobsites with a waterproof full grain leather upper and waterproof KEEN.DRYTM membrane; a dual-zone Dri-Lex lining helps maintain a healthy foot environment by pulling moisture away from the foot. A puncture-resistant midsole plate, lightweight aluminum toe and rated electrical hazard protection keep you safe, while a dual-density midsole and removable footbed support your foot in comfort for hours on end. The KEEN Portland PR 6" boot is finished with a siped, slip-resistant rubber outsole for secure footing and reflective piping for after-dark visibility.
From beaches to mountains to city streets, Keen believes the outdoors is anyplace without a ceiling. Keen believes in living a HybridLife, which means being part of a greater community that is full of people who create possibilities, play in the outdoors and care for the world around them.

I do have to say though, that these are the most comfortable boots I've owned. The last high top pair of Keen workboots were also great, but were a little hot for summer, so I bought these. The other Keen boots had a stitched outsole which was different construction and seemed to hold up much better than these.
As owner of a construction company, I need these for work, but even on days where i'm in the dirt it's a minimum compared to how hard some other guys use their boots. I have a feeling if I was a full time laborer who depended on my boots for 8-10 hour days, these wouldn't fit the bill. I would be surprised if mine are even still waterproof at the end of this winter at this rate. I wouldn't gripe about any of this for a 90-100 dollar boot, but for almost 200 bucks? They're not a good deal.
The funniest part about this is I've had a pair of Keen "Newport" Leather Sandals that I have worn religiously (every night after work, most of the summers, hiking, and yes, even on dry winter days) for 2.5 years now and show barely any sort of wear. I would buy them 100 times over, but for workboots? I guess my next pair may be Chippewas again.
Update: November 24, 2015 I just bought a new pair of Keens because these have finally worn out enough to warrant a new pair. The only thing that ever broke on these shoes was the laces but like I said that is easily fixed. I wore these shoes right down the the bottom of the tread and I belive they were the best shoes I have ever had. Keep up the good work Keen!
I am a job site supervisor, and I cannot see how the soles would hold up to daily wear on rocky terrain or around a job site, especially if you more of a tradesman.
Keen, if you read this. I loved that they are made in USA and I would be happy to purchase again if you can tell me that with confidence the soles would hold up.
These boots were so poorly made, the eyelets and lace hooks separated from the leather within two weeks. I literally could not lace these boots comfortably past midfoot. After reading the issues everyone else has had with separating soles, I'm convinced that Keen has turned a blind eye to the quality control. The really sad comparison is that I truly believe the Keens I've bought that were made overseas, were much better built.
I like the aluminum toe - doesn't add a lot of weight to the boot.
I'd just like to add that one boot, including laces, weighs 27.5 oz. This is for the size 7M. Maybe this helps others in their shopping, but like I said, the boot feels pretty light to me.
