   Portland, Ore. (May 28, 2021) – This summer, KEEN Utility brings innovation and American ingenuity to the forefront with the introduction of the Troy work boot. Featuring KEEN.BELLOWS FLEX technology, the ergonomically engineered system designed to offer multidirectional flexion where you need it most, the Troy makes bending, crawling, squatting, kneeling and other knee-down work up to three times easier.

Part of the brand’s American Built collection of boots and shoes, this six-inch boot is assembled with pride in KEEN’s Portland, Oregon manufacturing facility using the finest materials from around the world. The Troy features a lightweight LuftCell air-infused PU midsole for weightless comfort and all-day support as well as a LuftCore air-injected heel for enhanced cushioning and shock absorption that helps reduce the impact on the body with every heel strike.

Combining quality with performance and comfort, the Troy features a KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane which allows water vapor out without letting water in and an antimicrobial lining to help keep the boots odor-free. The Troy meets ASTM EH standards along with MARK II non-slip standards and features an oil- and slip-resistant rubber outsole. The boot offers ASTM-rated toe protection with left and right asymmetrical carbon-fiber safety toes that are non-metallic, 15% lighter than steel and feature a roomier, more unobtrusive fit.

“We are excited to introduce the Troy and its innovative, lightweight KEEN.BELLOWS FLEX technology,” says Robin Skillings, Senior Director of Marketing at KEEN Utility. “This is game-changing technology. Not only is it designed to more easily bend with your foot, but it also solves the issue of the typical drying and cracking seen with an all-leather upper in the high flexion part of a work boot. It works with you, never against you.”

This medium-duty work boot is designed for both indoor and outdoor work environments including industries such as carpentry, plumbing, HVAC, electrician, and other construction trades where both work below the knee and safety are key. Available in two colorways, the Troy will be available at retailers nationwide beginning in June 2021 and can be found online at
