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.

Lighter than steel, doesn't transmit heat or cold, and springs back to shape better.
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. 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

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.
Contoured outsoles are cement 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.
