The CSA Pittsburgh Energy from KEEN Utility combines a proven athletic-hiker fit with a nimble, easy-wearing work experience. The medium-duty boot offers cushioning and flexibility with comfort enhancements that include a KEEN.ReGEN midsole designed to returns 50 per cent more energy than standard EVA foam; a KEEN.DRY waterproof, breathable membrane; and a TPU shank for midfoot support.

While offering comfort, the Pittsburgh Energy does not sacrifice on safety features to do so. The boots are engineered with asymmetrical carbon-fibre toes that are 15 per cent lighter than steel, an oil- and slip-resistant outsole, and an EH rating to serve as a secondary source of protection from live circuits. The CSA-approved Pittsburgh Energy is available in men’s sizes.
