We are welcoming a new style to our collection of American made and built footwear. Meet the Dover 8". It is waterproof with 600 grams of insulation, and from one of our top brands, KEEN Utility. KEEN has made space in its Oregon footprint for American assembly, and because American-made is something our customers care about, we like to put shoes like the Dover front and center. The Dover 8" is priced moderately, so one can enjoy a high performing, American built work boot at a much lower price than a more expensive, US-made Red Wing.

Let us kick things off by starting with the top portion of the Dover 8' WP 600G. This is eight inches of height with the promise of waterproof protection and the warmth of 600 grams of insulation. The waterproof upper is backed by a moisture wicking textile lining and the KEEN.DRY waterproof (and breathable) membrane, so tromp in the snow to your heart's delight. Nothing wet is getting in these. With any shoe, the more features added like waterproof and insulation, the heavier the shoe. KEEN Utility offsets this with the asymmetrical toe design, specifically catered to left and right feet, and the non-metallic carbon fiber safety toe caps. Carbon fiber is just as protective for impact and compression ratings mandated by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM), and these are 15% lighter than their steel cap counterparts. Meaning, you will not feel like you are carting around 5 pounds of tools on your feet. For a standard size 10 foot, your pair of Dovers will weigh 3.5 pounds.

Let us look inside the Dover 8" WP 600G. Keen Utility rates this boot as a medium duty work boot, and they start with security and stability. KEEN's Konnect.Fit heel-capture creates a contoured space for the heel and ankle, so feet have a locked-in, snug feel. That means no slippage if you are wearing the right size boot for your feet. Stability is also present in the TPU shank that provides midfoot support with each step. For some of its work boots, KEEN Utility has added a 90-degree heel, which means these styles, and the Dover, have a 5/8" inch heel lift. This feature stabilizes the heel and provides proper pressure to the front of the foot. For address comfort, the Dover 8" has a removable (and replaceable) metatomical PU footbed as well as KEEN's LuftCell PU midsole, which is air-infused and gives the sensation of weightless comfort. As with most of its work boots, KEEN Utility added a non-marking rubber sole to the Dover 8" that is oil- and slip-resistant.

The Dover. Between the locked-in security for your feet, the comfy air-infused lift of the Luftcell technology, and the waterproof upper, this is a winter work boot guaranteed to please.
