Heavy Duty Leather
Flame-resistant and waterproof leather for durable performance. Specially softened tumbled leather in high flex areas to move with you.
Enhanced ePTFE Barrier Bootie
A full-height bootie liner made from a package of Cambrelle®, 300g insulation, and enhanced ePTE barrier to provide liquid and chemical protection.
3M SCOTCHLITE™ Reflective Material
Flame-resistant reflection material for added visibility.
HEELPORT™ Internal Fit System
Anatomical HEELPORT™ foam insert holds your heel securly so it won't slipe while cushioning your ankle.
Molded Heel Counter
A rugged heel counter is individually molded to fit each size perfectly.
LENZI® Puncture Protection
High-performance composite penetration-resistant insole is made from multiple layers of HT ceramic material - like ballistic armor for your feet. Far more flexible than a steel plate and doesn't trasmit heat or cold. Exceeds NFPA standards for safety.
Lighter than steel, doesn't transmit heat or cold and springs back to shape better.
Vibram® Contoured Cup Outsole
Molded outsole wraps onto the leather upper for athletic shoe performance. Flame, abrasion, oil, acid, and slip resistant compound engineered for high-traction and durability even during prolonged exposure to the extremes of heat and cold.
Siping lines cut into flat areas open up when flexed to provide additional traction on water and ice. Self-cleaning lugs and omni-direction tread pattern designed for superior performance in all terrains and when working on ladders.
Pull-straps are internally reinforced for added strength and to keep them upright. Straps are securely box and cross-stiched to keep them on for good.
NOMEX®/KEVLAR® Protective Shield
Two layers of NOMEX®/KEVLAR® fiber batting protects the CROSSTECH® moisture barrier, provides cut resistance, and adds the extra thermal protection required for proximity firefighting.
Aluminized PBI™ Fabric
An added layer between the leather shell and the KEVLAR® fiber batting provides additional radiant and conductive heat protection to meet the higher thermal requirements for proximity firefighting.
3D Molded Shin Guard
Molded and padded shin guard provides extra protection when you are working on a ladder.
Composite Safety Toe Cap
Lighter than steel, doesn't transmit heat or cold, and exceeds NFPA standards for safety.
Made fromthe same rugged compound as the outside for abrasion resistance when crawling. Cemented and 2-needle stitched to the vamp.
3D Molded Footbed
Removable footbed is contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your foot and to provide arch support. Moisture wicking and anti-microbial fabric top layer.
Custom Fit System
A second removable footbed is provided with every pair for a custom fit. Use the thicker footbed for a snugger fit or when wearing with lighter socks.
3D Composite Lasting Board
Boot uppers are lasted to a molded and contoured lasting board with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot and a torsionally stable heel. Works together with the 3D molded footbed to conform to the shape of your foot.
Athletic Footwear Construction
Contoured outsoles are bonded to the bottom and sides of the upper using a 2-part cross-linking adhesive that forms a bond stronger than the materials it attaches. Without stiff welts and ribbed mid-soles, this attachment process is far more flexible.

Boots may be resoled at the factory with new outsoles. Please contact Globe Customer Service at 1-800-232-8323 for details.
