Reviewed by Yehuda the electrician from Israel on Sunday, November 2, 2014all well, except that: 1) from the start collapsing sole, 2) calm water passes through the skin
Reviewed by Joshua from Kentucky on Saturday, November 1, 2014These boots are really comfortable, and have good traction on wet or oily surfaces, however the soles did not hold up well. Not sure if it was oil or heat (sometimes they were exposed to probably ~150*F temps) but the lugs on the sides started flaking off in chunks. I meant to return them, but at the time STP was pretty much out of anything that would work for me, and I still had to wear steel toes everyday. I still use them occasionally as a spare, or to wear in snow and ice.
Reviewed by Joshua from Kentucky on Monday, September 29, 2014I purchased these when I was working as a process engineer in an injection molding facility. I'm not sure if it was occasional exposure to heat or hydraulic oil, but the soles start chunking off after a couple months. The boots were very comfortable and had very good traction in previously mentioned oil.
Reviewed by finicky shopper from great northwest on Friday, September 19, 2014I am a woman in search of boots that will handle my many foot issues and allow me to hike. I've recently switched to trying men's boots, as they tend to be a little wider in the toes, where I need it. Typically, I love keen shoes because of the round wide toe box. So I've been comparing the Portland and Cleveland work boots. Both have little to no heel height compared to the bed of the shoe, which is great for me.
**Helpful hint for the hard - to-fit foot: I suggest ordering more than one pair of the same style and size. My experience with Keens, and most Asian made shoes, is that there is a lot of variability in size/shape, and little details. So don't give up if one pair seems like a second - try another pair. So it might be possible to find a pair of boots without the cons listed below.
Portland Pros: -Nice firm composite toe
- Nice leather
- Generally cushier inside, especially around the calves
Cons: -the gusset on the tongue did not protect from the shoelace hook near the ankle - this could really hurt over time.
-(for me) the boot is rather narrow and long, so it didn't work for my tender toes. Too bad.
Cleveland Pros: Nice big round toe box
Con: The gusset on the tongue is made of some stiff material that makes it less effective as a cushion under the laces. Also, it varies from shoe to shoe how well the gusset lays. Some of them were kind of bunchy.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bruce from Ma. on Thursday, June 5, 2014I usually have good luck with Keen's. But had to send the first pair back due to the sole coming apart just after 1 month.
