Try it out: What firefighters are saying about Lion Technical Footwear

As part of Lion’s Try it Out program, we’ve put our brand new leather firefighting boots on the feet of some of our Lion Connects fans who’ve signed up to try out our latest products.

We’ve asked firefighters to put our new structural firefighting boots to the test while on duty and provide us with honest feedback on how the boots feel and how they are performing in the line of duty.

“Right out of the box, I put them on and fell in love,” said Lt. Michael Swiman of the Wake Forest Fire Department in North Carolina. “I felt like they were made for me.”

A key feature for Lt. Swiman is the Lock-Fit Ankle Support System™ that is unique to Lion Technical Footwear.

“I like the ankle support in the Lion boots the best,” Swiman said. “I shattered my ankle about 12 years ago, and that extra support makes a big difference.”

Working comfort is also a critical factor for another tester, Vinnie Catennaci of the Wyocena Bureau of Fire in Wisconsin.

“These are awesome boots,” said Catennaci. “I have a pair of the Commander zip/lace boots. They are very comfortable and offer great support.”

We’re also looking for some firefighters to try out products from our line of Lion StationWear. Want to be considered? Fill out the Try it Out form, and you may be reading about yourself here soon.
