Cool website. Be sure to click the Weather filter to find waterproof items.

Someone mentioned REI. Gander Mtn? Cabellas? Are they even going to carry the steel toed versions? I have rolled over my feet with my mower wheels enough to know that steel/hard toe is important to me.
You live about an hour away from my hometown Red Wing, MN. I would think that their downtown store will have enough options to make your mind spin. Also downstairs they have a discount area and you can always ask if they have seconds to sell.

When I buy work boots usually they are only a month or sold old from being on the mfg line. Support your local business.
Looking for blown Kawi 29HP DFI engine's fd791d, whole thing, intake, throttle body, and electronic's. PM me if you have something you would like to sell.

I wear keens too! Thinking about getting a pair of those lawn grips though. I like the waterproof feature.
