The Davenport Boot is a medium-duty work boot with a remarkably lightweight design. The Davenport is 100 percent non-metallic by design offering asymmetrical composite safety toes which provide a roomier toe box for toes’ natural flexion and nylon hardware making this fully capable and sporty industrial hiker a must-have for every tradesmen’s work arsenal.  

“The demand for more versatile, lightweight and non-metallic safety footwear styles is a growing trend in the work boot industry,” said Chris Heffernan, general manager at KEEN Utility. “The Davenport industrial hiker answers this call in a silhouette that pays homage to KEEN’s outdoor heritage. Incredibly durable design combined with innovative performance and technology features have positioned this style to be one of our most in-demand of the season.” 

Completely metal-free, the Davenport industrial hiker features nylon eyelets and hardware together with roomy, asymmetrical composite safety toes that satisfy ASTM crush, impact and EH safety standards. The wider toe-box delivers unparalleled comfort and fit for the wearer, allowing for increased movement and flexion in the toes while reducing common safety footwear complaints, such as pinched feet or too-tight of boots.  

Crafted with waterproof Nubuck leather and PU coated waterproof split suede, the six-inch Davenport industrial hiker also features a KEEN.Dry® waterproof, breathable membrane that allows moisture out but never in, and a KEEN.Grip oil- and slip-resistant non-marking rubber outsole, which meets ASTM Mark II non-slip testing standards supporting traction and performance in slippery or wet conditions. A Cleansport NXT™1 lining provides natural odor protection for the life of the boot while a PU midsole and dual-density EVA footbed provides lasting comfort and support for the longest days on the job.  

The Davenport industrial hiker is available in an all-leather version and two unique mesh/leather colorways. It can be found at select KEEN Utility retailers.
