The most comfortable boots you will ever wear.
MADE IN THE USA FROM THE BEST COMPONENTS IN THE WORLD. Technology comes to the rescue when you wear Globe Technical FootGear. Built with our unique athletic footwear construction for remarkable flexibility, TECHNICAL is quad-certified to be the perfect complement to your Structural Boots. And the exclusive PORON® XRD™ metatarsal guard provides impact protection that you will hardley even feel as your wear your boots. Meets or exceeds the following ANSI standards (part of the NFPA 1951 standard): ANSI Z41.1, ASTM F2412, ASTM F2413.
- Men's: 5-12.5 (full and half sizes), 13-15 (full sizes only) in Medium, Wide, and X-Wide widths.
NFPA 1951 (Technical Rescue), NFPA 1977 (Wildland), NFPA 1992 (Liquid Splash), and NFPA 1999 (Emergency Medical) compliant.
Heavy Duty FIRESTORM™ Leather
Flame-resistant and waterproof leather for durable performance. Leather has added reflective material at the heel for added nighttime visibility. Specially softened tumbled leather in high flex areas to move with you.
CROSSTECH® Footwear Fabric
A full-height bootie liner made from a package of Cambrelle®, 300g insulation, and CROSSTECH® moisture barrier provides protection unmatched by any other waterproof, breathable barrier.
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.
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.
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 transmit heat or cold. Exceeds NFPA standards for safety.
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.
Lighter than steel, doesn't transmit heat or cold, and springs back to shape better.
Composite Safety Toe Cap
Lighter than steel, doesn't transmit heat or cold, and exceeds NFPA standards for safety.
Additional protection for the metatarsus (the bones extending back from your toes over the instep) is provided by a flexible, molded PORON® XRD™ impact-resistant foam for impact protection that you will hardly even feel as you wear your boot.
Molded Heel Counter
A rugged heel counter is individually molded to fit each size perfectly.
Made from the same rugged compound as the outsole 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.
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.
Custom Fit System
A second removable footbed is provided with every pair for a custom fit. Use this thicker footbed for a snugger fit or when wearing with lighter socks.
Combines the advantages of a lace-up for a custom fit and the convenience and speed of a zipper.
Pull-straps are internally reinforced for added strength and to keep them upright. Straps are securely box- and cross-stitched to keep them on for good.
All Globe Boots include Snug Fit Inserts to customize your comfort level. Use this thicker insert for a snugger fit or when wearing with lighter socks.
Top Ten Reasons Why Globe FootGear Boots are Better
1. Cushioned and Contoured Platform
Globe FootGear is built on an entirely new platform with every layer of the system being cushioned and contoured. The outsole is a cushioned and contoured cup sole like athletic shoes, the midsole is a 3D contoured dual-density lasting board with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot, and 3D molded removable footbed insoles are contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your feet. Compared to stiff, Goodyear welt construction boots with their flat rubber outsole, flat midsole, and stiff ribbed insole, Globe FootGear is instantly more supportive and comfortable.
2. Remarkably Flexible
Globe FootGear is made with an athletic footwear construction, a lasting board with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot, and a flexible LENZI® puncture resistant composite insole (like body armor for your feet) so that they are remarkably flexible and feel broken in right out of the box. Traditional Goodyear welt construction boots use a stiff, ribbed lasting board and typically a steel puncture resistant plate so that they don’t flex normally with your foot.
3. Better Fit
Globe Structural 14” Pull-On boots use an internal fit system including an anatomical HEELPORT™ foam insert that wraps around the top and sides of your heal with an opening to park and hold the back of heel securely. The cushioned flex joint at the instep holds your foot back and down into the HEELPORT™, the HEELPORT™ locks your heel in place, and because the boot is remarkably flexible there is no need for your heel to slip. Every pair of Globe FootGear also comes with two sets of removable contoured and cushioned footbeds so that you can get a custom fit. Use the thicker footbed for a snugger fit and the regular footbed for a more generous fit.
4. Better Grip
Globe FootGear is made from a molded outsole that wraps onto the upper for athletic shoe performance using a flame, abrasion, oil, acid, and slip resistant compound engineered for high-traction and durability. Siping lines cut into flat areas open up when flexed to provide additional traction on water and ice. Self-cleaning lugs and an aggressive, omni-directional tread pattern are designed for superior performance in all terrains and when working on ladders. And because Globe boots are remarkably flexible, you get more tread on the surface for a better grip every time. An independent testing lab has confirmed that among all Structural fire boots tested, Globe is far and away the most slip resistant in dry, wet, and ice conditions.
5. Advance Composites Replace Metal Components
Globe FootGear is made with advanced composite materials that are lighter than steel and don’t transmit heat or cold. Composite safety toe caps and shanks meet the highest standards of safety. And the LENZI® penetration protection is made from multiple layers of HT ceramic material like ballistic armor for your feet for superior performance and flexibility while testing 35% more penetration resistant than steel.
6. CROSSTECH® Fabric Bootie
Globe FootGear is made with an inner full-height bootie using CROSSTECH® footwear fabric for performance unmatched by any other waterproof, breathable barrier. In the factory, each and every bootie is individually water-tested to insure that every pair we produce meets the highest standards of liquid-resistant integrity.
7. Extra Thermal Insulation
Although the CROSSTECH® package that we use to make the inner bootie of our Structural boots will meet the requirements of NFPA 1971 for thermal resistance by itself, on this series we add an additional KEVLAR® Protective Shield to protect the moisture barrier, provide additional cut resistance, and to substantially increase thermal resistance.
8. Heavy-Duty Leather
We use the best heavyweight, fire-resistant, and liquid-resistant leather in the world for our Structural boots. We use a specially softened tumbled leather in the instep and heel flex areas and the boot collar to move with you. Although fabric panel boots can reduce some weight, these materials need to be built up with backing fabric and glue to keep them standing up which cuts down on breathability. And nothing beats the long-term durability of premium leather in this application.
9. Wide Range of Sizes
We offer boots in Women’s sizes 5 – 10 (full and half sizes) and Men’s sizes 5 – 12.5 (full and half sizes), 13 – 15 (full sizes only) and in our Structural 14” boots we also offer 16 – 17 (full sizes only). With our Custom Fit System and Medium, Wide, and XWide widths, we can comfortably fit those with feet from C – EEEE widths. That’s enough sizes to fit 192 length and width feet combinations to fit virtually everyone.
