For Tools of the Trade, David Frane visited the headquarters of footwear maker Keen whose claim to fame was making sports sandals. Now, the company has expanded into making work boots. Frane went behind-the-scenes to the work boot factory to see how they design, assemble, and test Keen’s Industrial Line.
The new work boots offer puncture-resistant soles, metatarsal guards, slip-resistant tread, and steel, composite, or aluminum toes. Take a peek into how these work boots go from mere concept to a reality with a slideshow you can click through below.
