SUPRAFLEX 14" Boots
Continuous Segmented Flex Panels
Throughout the front of the shaft and top of the foot to provide unprecedented flexibility to make these boots feel like your favorite pair of athletic shoes.
Recessed Side Pull-On Handles
Integral pull-on handles are inset on the sides and hidden when not needed.
Rear Carry Loops
Flexible NOMEX® webbing loops allow easy carrying when installed in turnout pants.
Fabric panels in shaft and flex joints are made from DRAGONHIDE® — a highly abrasion, cut, flame, and water-resistant fabric so tough that it is used to reinforce turnout gear.
Flame-Resistant, Water-Resistant Leather
Pebble grain leather with tumbled leather collar.
GORE® CROSSTECH® Footwear Fabric
A full-height bootie liner made from a package of Omaha lining fabric, 300g insulation, and GORE® CROSSTECH® moisture barrier provides protection unmatched by any other waterproof, breathable barrier.
KEVLAR® Blend Protective Shield
Protects the GORE® CROSSTECH® moisture barrier, provides cut resistance, and adds thermal protection.
Padded Shin Guard
Provides cushioning when you are working on a ladder.
HEELPORT™ Internal Fit System
Holds your heel securely so it won't slip while cushioning your ankle.
Composite Heel Counter
Individually molded to fit each size perfectly.
Composite Safety Toe Cap
Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, and exceeds NFPA standards for safety.
VIBRAM® Toe Bumper
Made from the same rugged compound as the outsole for abrasion resistance when crawling.
3D Removable Footbed System
Removable footbeds are contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your feet and to provide arch support. Urethane foam bottom layer provides durable cushioning while a micro-cellular open-cell foam top layer delivers cool, all-day comfort. Moisture-wicking and anti-microbial fabric top pulls moisture away from your feet. A second, thicker removable footbed is provided for a snugger fit or when wearing lighter socks.
3D Composite Lasting Board
Molded, contoured, and lasted to boot uppers with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot and a torsionally stable heel. Works together with the 3D molded footbed to conform to the shape of your foot.
Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, springs back to shape better.
Composite Puncture Protection
Far more flexible than a steel plate and doesn’t transmit heat or cold. Exceeds NFPA standards.
VIBRAM® Contoured Cup Outsole
Molded outsole wraps onto the leather upper for athletic shoe performance. Flame, abrasion, oil, acid, and slip-resistant compound engineered for high traction and durability even during prolonged exposure to extremes of heat and cold.
Athletic Footwear Construction
2-part cross-linking adhesive bonds outsoles to the upper. Without stiff welts and ribbed mid-soles, this attachment process is far more flexible.
Siping – thin slits cut into flat areas across the sole – opens up when flexed to provide additional traction on water and ice. Self-cleaning lugs and omnidirectional tread pattern designed for superior performance in all terrains and when working on ladders. Optional VIBRAM® ARCTIC GRIP PRO outsoles are available for even better slip resistance on wet ice.
