The most comfortable boots you will ever wear.
Globe knows physiology. You know comfort. This is where they meet.
Anyone who’s ever had to scale a 40 ft. ladder, ventilate a roof, or climb through a narrow window in full turnout gear knows flexibility is key to doing your job effectively. Wearing stiff boots can only hinder performance. Adequate protection is a requirement—comfort isn’t. But if your “protective” boots make your feet ache, let your ankles turn, or simply slow you down, you're not going to be able to perform at your peak.
Feet are meant to bend; so Globe designed their exceptional Structural Series Fire Boots to bend along with you as they provide the most advanced protection and support possible. Quite simply, they’re designed to help you do your job easier. From pulling them on in a big hurry with the Shadow’s soft heavy-duty Nomex® webbing pull straps, to carrying you safely and comfortably through the dangers and hard work you encounter on the fire scene, to taking them off when the job is done.
Globe’s unique design features advanced materials, the latest ergonomic engineering, and uncompromising construction—to make these exceptional new boots a very comfortable extension of you.

10. VIBRAM® Toe Bumper

11. Dual-Density Enhanced 3D Molded Footbed System
Removable dual-density footbeds are contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your feet and to provide arch support. Urethane foam bottom layer provides durable cushioning while a micro-cellular open-cell foam top layer delivers cool, all-day comfort. Moisture-wicking and anti-microbial fabric top pull moisture away from your feet. An additional set of polymer inserts are provided to install under the footbeds when a snugger fit is desired.
12. 3D Composite Lasting Board
Molded, contoured, and lasted to boot uppers 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.

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.
16. Athletic Footwear Construction
2-part cross-linking adhesive bonds outsoles to the upper. Without stiff welts and ribbed mid-soles, this attachment process is far more flexible.
17. Slip-Resistant Tread
Siping – thin slits cut into flat areas across the sole – opens 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. Optional VIBRAM® ARCTIC GRIP PRO outsoles are available for even better slip-resistance on wet ice.
18. Extended Size Range
How do you know if you require “Wide Calf” 14” Globe Boots?
The circumference of the regular calf boot (pull-on) is 17.5” and for the wide calf is 20.5”. Measure the area around the thickest part of your calf to see which boot style is suited best for you.
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.
