With the KEEN Utility® Sparta ESD, you get a safety work shoe with excellent cushion and slip-resistance that is ideal for light industrial work on the factory floor.
An aluminum toe meets ASTM standards for impact and compression, keeping toes safe from dropped objects and rollover. The Sparta also meets ASTM standards for static dissipative hazard. This construction allows static build-up to safely discharge through your shoes to the floor.
A black textile upper with a reinforced toe reduces the weight of this work shoe and gives it a sporty appearance. The KEEN.REBOUND molded PU midsole provides instant cushion yet resists compression with each footfall. A Keen Grip rubber wedge outsole not only is durable, but also earns high marks for slip and oil resistance with Mark II testing.
The breathable interior lining with removable comfort insole makes the Sparta comfortable to wear, making the Sparta ESD men's shoes an ideal choice for warehouse work. Pick up your pair today.
Impact testing determines the amount of protection to the toe under various foot pounds of force. Compression testing determines the amount of static pressure a steel/composite toe cap can withstand. Our boots are I75/C75
Footwear is constructed of materials that, when in contact with properly grounded floor surfaces, will safely discharge static build-up through the shoe to the floor. Our testing experience contributed to the SD standard established in Section 6 of the ANSI Z41 and carried over to ASTM F2413-05.
Built with an outsole design and materials that help provide slip-resistance and traction on various surfaces.

runs larger than expectedNine months of use and they are holding up well. My 8.5 (US) medium feels more like a 9 wide. I probably should have taken the time to return them. On the positive side, I haven't had to untie my shoelaces all year long.

Very ComfortableThese are very comfortable compared to the Redwings Worx ESD safety shoe that I used to wear. I've had these for several months now and have had no problems getting them to pass daily ESD safety test. I'm on my feet 8-10 hours a day and these are extremely comfortable. I have narrow feet and normally wear a 10.5, but I ordered an 11 based on my experience with a non ESD pair I had that seemed to run small because of the safety toe.
My only criticism thus far is the shoelaces. I'd rather they have the same type typically found on Keen hiking shoes instead of the cheap-o ones that seem to like to turn into knots on their own and don't like to stay tied.
Aside from that, if they hold up to normal indoor manufacturing/boardroom use over the next year, I will likely be purchasing these again.
