PROXIMITY 14'' Pull-On
MADE IN THE USA
Say goodbye to heavy, stiff, rubber boots forever. Globe PROXIMITY (patent pending) is the world's first leather proximity boot. It's remarkably flexible with the same cushioned and contoured sole, athletic footwear construction, and custom fit system as our original SUPREME™ structural boots. Meeting the radiant heat requirements of Proximity as well as the Structural requirements of NFPA 1971, PROXIMITY can be the one boot you wear for all your calls.

Specially softened tumbled leather in high flex areas to move with you.

Individually molded to fit each size perfectly.
6. Composite Shank
Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, springs back to shape better.
7. Composite Puncture Protection
Far more flexible than a steel plate and doesn’t transmit heat or cold. Exceeds NFPA standards for safety.
8. 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 extremes of heat and cold.
9. Slip Resistant Tread
Siping – thin slits cut into flat areas across the sole – 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.
Flexible NOMEX® webbing pull-straps reinforced with leather slide easily under turnout pants and are kind to your legs.
11. NOMEX®/KEVLAR® Protective Shield
Protects the CROSSTECH® moisture barrier, provides cut resistance, and adds thermal protection.
12. 3D Molded, padded Shin Guard
Provides extra protection when you are working on a ladder.
13. Aluminized PBI® Fabric
An added layer between the leather shell and the NOMEX®/KEVLAR® fiber batting provides additional radiant and conductive heat protection to meet the higher thermal requirements for proximity firefighting.
14. Composite Safety Toe Cap
Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, and exceeds NFPA standards for safety.
15. Vibram® Pro Tania Toe Bumper
For abrasion resistance when crawling. Cemented and 2-needle stitched to the vamp.
16. 3D Molded Removable Footbed
Contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your foot and to provide arch support. Moisture wicking and anti-microbial fabric top layer.
17. 3D Composite Lasting Board
Lasted to boot uppers with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot and a torsionally stable heel. Works together with the footbed to conform to your foot’s shape.
18. Athletic Footwear Construction
2-part cross-linking adhesive bonds outsoles and the upper. Without stiff welts and ribbed mid-soles, this attachment process is far more flexible.
Custom Fit System
A second, thicker removable footbed is provided for a snugger fit or when wearing with lighter socks.
