These boots are made for Pittsburgh

Written by Mila Sanina on .

 There are not that many things named after Pittsburgh. But Keen, the American shoe manufacturer, offers boots named after our glorious Steel City.

Pittsburgh is among Rust Belt Cities that now has its own line of boots.

This is how Keen describes 'Pittsburgh Boots' -- "Steel, toughness, and a willingness to tackle a hard day's work. What describes the city of Pittsburgh is also fitting of our new work boot of the same name. More than just footwear, this is a tool to get the job done right. With a long list of technology and features, this boot fends off fatigue and preserves your energy so you've got something left in the tank even after your shift is through."

Sounds about right. 

And despite the friendly rivalry between Portland -- where Keen is based -- and Pittsburgh, we can't help but notice that Keen made the Pittsburgh boots waaaaay better-looking. Right?
