Caution! May cause extreme comfort!

Lion Technical Footwear - Comfort that won't quit.

We’ve talked about the benefits of leather vs. rubber firefighting boots in this previous Lion Connects post. Now, we’re ready to tell you why our brand new line of structural firefighting boots, Lion Technical Footwear, is going to provide you with the most durable, safe and comfortable set of boots you can wear, run after run.

We’ll be officially launching Lion Technical Footwear at this year’s FDIC in Indianapolis April 22-25. And we really want you to come try them on. Here are 10 reasons why you should come by Booth 1612 and try on a pair of our brand new firefighting boots.

1. All Lion Technical Footwear is union-made in North America of top-quality materials and workmanship.

2. The patented Lock-Fit Ankle Support System will hold your foot and ankle in place like no other boot can, reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls (a leading cause of fireground injuries) while drastically improving comfort.

3. Leather boots are lighter weight, more comfortable, and better fitting than rubber boots.

4. Other boots may look flashy, but are they built to last? And are they built for firefighters? The design and construction of Lion Technical Footwear is driven by firefighting ergonomics to enhance comfort and reduce foot injury. (Your feet can thank us later).

5. Lion Technical Footwear is constructed with the most durable materials, including Goodyear® Storm Welt, Lenzi® puncture-resistant midsole, breathable CROSSTECH® fabric, a Vibram® Fire & Ice sole and premium, top-grade US-tanned FR leather.

6. Risks of puncture from sharp objects along with impact of falling objects are also of concern during firefighting operations. Lion Technical Footwear also delivers superior puncture and impact resistance.

7. Lion knows moisture management; and whether you’re talking about turnout gear or footwear, dry is better. With Lion Technical Footwear, the boots’ Cambrelle® lining transports perspiration while the breathable CROSSTECH® footwear moisture barrier membrane allows moisture vapor to escape. Your feet stay dry and comfortable.

8. The wide-fitting tempered-steel “wide-flange” toe cap with rubber lip has been tested to withstand an impact up to 92.2 foot pounds. It exceeds NFPA, CSA and ASTM standards.

9. Run after run, Lion Technical Footwear is built to last. You can put these boots through hell, but your feet won’t suffer.

10. Everyone who tries on a pair of boots in our booth at FDIC is entered into a drawing to win a free pair!
