    Default Black Diamond x boot?

    Does any one have any more info on this boot than what is on their website? How do they compare to other manufacturers in fit and finish? From everything i have gathered (from what little is out there) they are a nice comfortable boot. I need a new set and i have not been too happy with my warrington pro's.

    While their models are no where as attractive, you might want to look at a new pair of the Globe Boots. We purchased the whole dept. a pair last year and so far everyone loves them.

    I have a set, best boots i have ever owned. And i had Warrington Pro's before these.

    I wore them EVERY DAY last winter in the northeast for anywhere from 12 -16 hours a day. I used them for my full time railroad job and now department use. They fit like sneakers, my feet were never cold and never got sore. I made a whole thread about them.

    I have nothing but praise for them.

    My brother has a pair of the Black Diamonds and loves them, but I am not a fan.

    I love the Globe boots and plan on buying some soon.

    Also....since someone brought it up .....here are the Black Diamond models at FDIC.....

    Like I said Black Diamonds Boot has some good looking models If those girls had shown up when we were looking to purchase boots we would have bought 35 pairs even if they killed everyone's feet. I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with Black Diamonds Boots but having beautiful ladies hawk your gear does not hurt. Well anyway I still glad that we purchased the Globe boots. They're the best boots out there at this time.

    Does anyone know of a Canadian distributor for Globe structural boots? I have been looking for a while without success.

    Thanks.
