When you need a stout working boot that doesn’t look clunky after hours, the Keen Men's Brixen Mid Work Boots take on the tough snow, ice and frozen turf conditions of a work day, hiking sojourn on a weekend, and social commitments in-between. Its waterproof leather and mesh upper features a KEEN.DRY waterproof breathable membrane to keep snow and slush out while managing excess foot moisture on the inside. Lined with super comfy wool felt, this work footwear surrounds the foot in KEEN.WARM insulation with an added thermal heat shield footbed for a cozy environment – whether you're standing on steel or rock. Its TPU shank gives you support and stability to reduce foot fatigue over long distances and uneven surfaces, while the KEEN.DCR outsole provides aggressive rubber lugs for burly traction on packed snow. Whether you’re up early and working on a single-digit morning or enjoying a quiet snowshoe through the backwoods, the Keen Brixen Mid Work Boots for Men give you unbeatable performance in winter conditions.

Brixen Mid
December 29, 2011

This Brixen Mid boot fits like a glove. I took a chance and skipped the break in period and walked all day without a problem. This is a very solid boot with balance. Nice and comfortable with no detectable seam on the inside. Keen seem to be made for my feet. Thank you Keen....

Best winter work boot
January 07, 2012

A friend had recommended these boots to me so I purchased them and they have been exceptional from the grip on snow and ice to the 400 grams thinsulate keeping my feet warm at minus temperatures.They are light and very comfortable(even within hours out of the box). Would highly recommend.

Keen boots
March 30, 2012

The boot has one main issue, the rim/collar is so stiff that it hurts your calf other then that it fits really nice and the soles are very heavy duty I had to return one pair due to an issue with the insole but the other pair insole was great, still an issue with the collar but I can work with it.

Pros: Great value, Cons: fit issue

worth the money

Nice boots, their pretty comfortable. They look good with boot cut jeans. I like them, they're cut small so get a half size bigger. Also, their really warm when worn in the snow as well as great grip for soft or packed snow. Provides great ankle support , also light on your feet. Overall great buy!

Great boots. We get snow from October to May and these held up really well. Plus they're something I can wear to work. I use them with snow shoes and without. The boots are light weight and completely waterproof. Very breathable too.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Jury still out
January 20, 2012

I just received these boots and although I am in Germany they came in less than a week; so big plus for Altrec. I wore these the day after they arrived and it's like havig snow tires on your feet, big thick tread, comfortable to walk in and they look like you mean business. The down side is the tops of the boots are not soft enough or forgiving and they tear into the backs of your shins - so much that I think I will have to send them back, as much as I like them otherwise. I am going to wait until the soreness goes away and try again, possibly I tied them too tight or have to wear a thicker sock? I wouldn't say they're ready to go right out of the box, but they do appear to be good quality. If i send them back it will be for something else from Altrec.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Cons: Bad design, stiff
