Description:

FEATURES: 1. Cushioned and Contoured Platform Globe footwear is built on an entirely new platform with every layer of the system being cushioned and contoured. The outsole is a cushioned and contoured cup sole like athletic shoes, the midsole is a 3D contoured dual-density lasting board with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot, and dual-density removable insoles are contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your feet. Compared to stiff Goodyear welt construction boots with their flat rubber outsole, flat midsole, and stiff ribbed insole, Globe footwear is instantly more supportive and comfortable. 2. Remarkably Flexible Globe footwear is made with a cement construction like athletic shoes, a lasting board with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot, and a flexible LENZI® puncture resistant composite (like body armor for your feet) so that they are remarkably flexible and feel broken in right out of the box. Goodyear welt construction uses a stiff ribbed lasting board and typically a steel puncture resistant plate so that the boot doesn’t flex with your foot. 3. Better Fit Globe Structural 14” Pull-On boots us an internal fit system including an anatomical HEELPORT™ foam insert that wraps around the top and sides of your heal with an opening to park and hold the back of heel securely. The cushioned instep holds your foot back and down into the HEELPORT™, the HEELPORT™ locks your heel in place, and because the boot is remarkably flexible there is no need for your heel to slip. Every pair of Globe footwear also comes with two sets of removable contoured and cushioned footbeds so that you can get a custom fit. Use the thicker footbed for a snugger fit and the regular footbed for a more generous fit. 4. Better Grip Globe footwear is made from a molded outsole that wraps onto the upper for athletic shoe performance using a flame, abrasion, oil, acid, and slip resistant compound engineered for high-traction and durability. Siping lines cut into flat areas open up when flexed to provide additional traction on water and ice. Self-cleaning lugs and an aggressive, omni-directional tread pattern are designed for superior performance in all terrains and when working on ladders. And because Globe boots are remarkably flexible, you get more tread on the surface for a better grip every time. 5. Advance Composites Replace Metal Components Globe footwear is made with advanced composite materials that are lighter than steel and don’t transmit heat or cold. Composite safety toe caps and shanks meet the highest standards of safety. And the LENZI® penetration protection is made from multiple layers of HT ceramic material like ballistic armor for your feet for superior performance and flexibility. 6. CROSSTECH® Fabric Bootie Globe footwear is made with an inner full-height bootie using CROSSTECH® footwear fabric for performance unmatched by any other waterproof, breathable barrier. In the factory, each and every bootie is individually water-tested to insure that every pair we produce meets the highest standards of liquid-resistant integrity. 7. Extra Thermal Insulation

    7. Extra Thermal Insulation
    Although the CROSSTECH® package that we use to make the inner bootie of our Structural boots will meet the requirements of NFPA 1971 for thermal resistance by itself, we add an additional KEVLAR®/NOMEX® Protective Shield to protect the moisture barrier, provide additional cut resistance, and to substantially increase thermal resistance.

    8. FIRESTORM™ Leather
    We use the best heavyweight, fire-resistant, and liquid-resistant leather in the world for our Structural boots – FIRESTORM™ leather from Prime Tanning. We add reflective material to the leather at the heel for nighttime visibility and a specially softened tumbled leather in the instep flex area and the collar to move with you. Although fabric panel boots can reduce some weight, these materials need to be built up with backing fabric and glue to keep them standing up which cuts down on breathability. And nothing beats the long-term durability of premium leather in this application.

    9. Wide Range of Sizes
    We offer boots in Women’s sizes 5 – 10 and Men’s 5 – 15 and soon 16 and 17. With our Custom Fit System and Medium, Wide, and XWide widths, we can comfortably fit those with feet from C – EEEE widths. That’s enough sizes to fit 192 length and width combinations of feet to fit virtually everyone.

    10. Made in USA
    Our boots are proudly made in the USA from the best components in the world.

    These seem to have it all! I've e-mailed the manufacturer for info on chemical resistance and whether metatarsal protection is available. They also make Technical and Emergency boots. No idea on price; maybe someone else has an idea. And they look pretty cool, too!

    The comfort these boots have to offer is unmatched. Also, the protection from the heat is unmatched.
