In today™s economy, Fire Departments have to constantly watch the bottom line, and this boot is the perfect choice for tight budgets. Built with the same attention to quality that HAIX is known for, the Fire Hunter USA is a solid choice at an economical price. The lower 11" profile allows more freedom of movement for wider calves, while still fulfilling the requirements of a structural firefighting boot. From the profiled rubber toe cap to the large pull on boot straps you have a boot specifically with your safety and comfort in mind. The HAIX® Sun Reflect leather reduces the heating effect of direct sunlight, keeping the leather and your feet cooler. With a lot of water getting splashed around you'll appreciate the waterproof/breathable CROSSTECH® feature that also offers chemical and bloodborne pathogen protection. Combined with the never duplicated Secura Liner®, you are ensured a liner that will never pull out or wrinkle over time. The rubber nitrile sole is oil and fuel resistant, self cleaning, and high voltage resistant to 14 KV. You never know what is underfoot from broken glass to nails, but with the stainless steel built into the sole, you have ultimate puncture protection. All threads and laces are flame resistant Nomex.
