Black Diamond X2 Leather Structural Firefighter Boot
Tougher, more protective, and better fitting, Black Diamond's 14" Leather Fusion Structural X2 Boots are worthy to be called "Battle Ready."
More secure fit from heel to toe: A unique three-point heel locking system has a rubber molded heel lock that cradles the foot to keep the heel positioned correctly, and held securely in place. The system effectively ends slippage, preventing dangerous ankle roll and uncomfortable abrasion-problems that can reduce a firefighter's effectiveness, or worse, over a long, active day. And because it adds to the life expectancy of the boot, it helps make this boot a better investment than boots that may cost less initially...but simply don't last.
More comfort underfoot: The unique Ortholite© Tri-density, multi-fit, removable comfort footbed has a breathable, anti-fungal rubber compound for odor prevention and a TPU heel cradle for shock absorption and all-around comfort. But the X2 does even more to make your feet feel welcome. The Ortholite footbed is also "Multi-Fit." It includes two extra "filler layers" that can be removed or replaced to internally "change" the width-from Medium to Wide, or even Extra-Wide. All with the same boot. No matter which width you normally wear, this boot simply fits. Even if your feet naturally swell during a long day in the heat, or from one day to the next. Or if a change of socks makes a change you can feel, these exceptional boots can be adjusted for the most comfortable fit.
|More speed: Integrated pull straps are built right into the sides of the heavy leather collar. They provide a quick sure grip for fast donning. There are no sewn-on leather or nylon web pull straps to eventually pull out or break...and nothing to flop around, get dirty, or become uncomfortably bunched up in the top of your boot. These boots are flexible where they need to be, but the construction of the durable leather and fusion shaft and built-in shin guards is designed to keep them standing upright for more support when you're in them, and easier donning when you're not-but need to be, fast. Plus they have a unique built-in boot jack that makes doffing almost laughably easy, even when wet.
