KEEN Utility™ Footwear Expands Fall 2016 Collection with Warren Series

Portland, Ore., (May 18, 2016) – Joining a collection of innovative safety styles for Fall 2016, KEEN Utility™ introduces the Warren collection, a series of medium-duty safety boots well-suited for the unique challenges of the railroad industry as well as other environments where a durable, stable boot is often the first tool needed on the job site.

“The Warren boot offers great all-around protection, comfort and fit for Fall ’16,” said Mark Reilly, senior director product development for KEEN Utility. “It answers a demand we were hearing from railroad workers while still delivering a versatile and hardworking safety boot well-suited for a number of working environments.”

Leading the charge, the Warren WP features supple, Nubuck waterproof leather in a classic, six-inch lace-up silhouette with padded collar for comfort. The Warren features a 90-degree, 5/8” heel which maximizes support and stability and together with its six-inch all-leather silhouette, satisfies the unique safety requirements of the railroad industry. This defined angle creates more room underfoot, offering a better grip on curved or uneven surfaces such as ladders, poles and rough terrain and is well-suited not only to railroad workers but also linemen, loggers and a variety of other hard-working industries. As a second line of defense against slips, trips and falls, the boot also features a KEEN.Grip® oil- and slip-resistant non-marking rubber outsole, which satisfies ASTM Mark II non-slip testing standards.

A new feature for Fall ’16, the Warren features a Cleansport NXT™ lining that employs natural microbes bonded to fabric to produce enzymes that break down odor on contact, offering natural odor control for the life of the boot. A TPU shank offers lightweight yet rigid support for the midfoot, while a removable metatomical dual density EVA footbed provides comfort that contours to every inch of the foot. Left and right asymmetrical steel toes reinforce this style for ASTM-rated crush and impact protection.

The Warren is also available in an electro-static dissipative (ESD) version as well as a soft-toe option.
