KEEN Utility is releasing its new Kansas City work sneaker, lightweight footwear loaded with features and can seamlessly transition between indoor and outdoor work.

The Kansas City is an athletic work sneaker that is overbuilt to outperform and showcase a unique combination of performance and comfort features from KEEN Utility. This includes a KEEN.ReGEN performance cushioning midsole that returns 50% more energy than standard EVA foam, KEEN.BELLOWS Flex technology, to offer multidirectional flexion making bending, squatting, kneeling and knee-down work up to three times easier, and KONNECTFIT heel-capture system to lock the heel down for sure-footed stability.

The Kansas City does not sacrifice on safety, offering carbon fiber toes that are 15% lighter than steel, an oil- and slip-resistant, non-marking lugged outsole tread design for optimal traction, and an EH rated protection underfoot from live electrical circuits. An athletic work sneaker built for medium-duty work, the Kansas City is designed for both indoor and outdoor work environments, and ideal for industries such as carpentry, plumbing, HVAC, and construction trades where both flexibility and safety are essential.

The Kansas City is available in low, mid-height and mid-height waterproof styles and will be released this fall. Visit for more information.
