Landscapers, golf course maintenance staff and other outdoor workers can move with ease throughout the workday with the athletic version of KEEN Utility’s CSA Flint II series of safety footwear.

Featuring carbon-fibre safety toes that are 15 per cent lighter than steel and KEEN.ReGEN midsole cushioning, the shoes feature an unobtrusive fit. KEEN.ReGEN is a lightweight, compression-resisting midsole that provides 50 per cent more energy return than standard EVA foam. KEEN.ReGEN was introduced in early 2019 as a proprietary lightweight, performance midsole technology. Now, even lighter than the original Flint, the reinvented Flint II gets the added benefit of the KEEN.ReGEN’s all-day comfort and extreme underfoot cushioning, support and shock absorption along with a superior compression-resistance that “bounces” back.

The shoe also features a puncture-resistant midsole plate and left and right asymmetrical toes. The Flint II Sport’s 100 per cent non-metallic construction allows for easy pass-through in highly-secured areas where metal detectors otherwise would stop boots with metal eyelets, toe caps and lace hooks.

The Sport variant is also built with the KEEN KonnectFit heel-capture system, giving the wearer a locked-in feel throughout the day. Other performance and safety features include an oil- and slip-resistant non-marking, an anti-microbial lining, providing natural odor protection free of chemicals and perfumes, and reflective webbing for additional safety and visibility. The shoes are also electric shock resistant (ESR), providing a secondary source of protection in case of accidental contact with live electrical circuits.

Other features include an outsole that disperses liquids quickly for increased traction, an external stability shank (ESS) for midfoot support, mesh and moisture-wicking material and a removable metatomical PU footbed.
