Boots that meet the Popularity-Factor

Investing in a new pair of boots can be nerve wracking. Will they fit right? Will they feel right? Will
they get the job done? One of the best things you can do is take a hint from others in the field who do what you do. If they love and rave about the boots? If they're gaining popularity? It's probably for good reason! 

The Globe Supreme 14" Pull-On boots are high on the popularity radar and loved by those who wear them. So take the hint and slip those feet into comfort and protection you deserve.
Let's learn more about them.

Globe claims these are the most comfortable boots you will ever wear. They compare them to feeling just like an athletic sneaker, which high flexibility material that can endure up to 1 million flexes with no compromise in performance!

It's got a multi-layer composite puncture protection insole, and a 3D molded shin guard that helps protect you when you're on a ladder. To add to the comfort factor, the boots include a removable Snug Fit Insert the helps you customize your comfort level, too.

Anyone who's ever had to scale a 40 foot ladder, ventilate a roof, or climb through a narrow window in full turnout gear knows that flexibility is key to doing your job effectively. Wearing stiff boots isn't an option! Thankfully, the Globe 14" Pull-On boots won't hinder a thing. They give you amazing protection, comfort and flexibility to get the job done.

What our wearers say about these boots:

"I have had these Boots for 4 years and they are still comfortable."

" like the fact that you can customize the fit because I have one foot a little bigger then the other. Light weight, flexible worth the money"

"I'm in school 5 days a week for my Fire Technology Associates Degree so I can be a career Firefighter, plus I'm a Volunteer Firefighter and EMT. I am in these boots almost every day and they are the most comfortable and durable footware I own! I like to look my best in and out of the uniform and gear and I really like the way these boots look, as well as perform. I am a firefighter in North Dakota/Minnesota and these boots have kept my feet comfortable, even when the temperature on scene and training was zero or below. If you're female like me, know your size in men's. I'm glad these boots come in smaller sizes for people like me with tiny feet. I would recommend these to anyone looking for boots. However, be warned! Once you upgrade to leather boots, you'll never be able to go back to rubber boots again!"
