Leather fire boots: What’s important to you?

A lot of firefighting boots look flashy. But are they built for working comfort, and are they built to last? The design and construction of the Marshall and Commander leather structural fire boots from Lion Technical Footwear is driven by firefighting ergonomics to enhance comfort and reduce injuries.

Do you ever feel like your feet are on fire after an hour or two in your boots? When your feet hurt, you lose mobility and stamina. That’s why the back of Lion Technical Footwear is designed to match the anatomical shape of your heel, and the Lock-Fit ankle support system provides a comfortable, athletic fit, run after run.

If you’re thinking about buying leather firefighting boots, here are just a few things to consider when evaluating your options:

  • All leather or leather-and-fabric composition
  • Steel or composite toe construction
  • Kevlar or polyfelt insulation
  • Removable insoles
  • Ankle guard/lock fit ankle protection
  • Goodyear welt, cement or direct attached construction
  • Soft or rigid shin guards
