Why on earth would you want those?

Because I used a friends of mine the other day and they are very comfortable! Besides the standard round sole are starting to hurt my feet!!

well, in that case....try the web directory here, or check back in the buyers guide issues of the fire service magazines. Also, contact any local fire equipment dealers that you know of and see if they sell em. Not that it matters, but im not a black diamond fan. I have a pair of leather pull up Lehigh boots, they are like wearing sneakers almost.

Hey, just wanted to give you a heads up. My fire department went out and bought 350 pairs of those black diamond boots. WELL, it was the biggest mistake we have made so far. There is a real big problem with the lining inside the boots tearing. The integrity of the boot is not good at all and we have sent back all of them. Just wanted to give you a heads up so you don't waste your money.

I use Warrington Pro the 10 or 11 inch which ever they com in. Most of the guys in my department use black diamond. But i like the fact that WP's have a wider sole. WP's are also more flat footed than BD's. Also I would have to say that the bunker style is more efficient. I use mine as a station boot also but we have bell bottom PBI pants that zip up so you can step through them with boots on but the fact of having bunker boots already in them is easier. my next pair will be bunker style and i will use my 11 inch ones as station boots. they are very comfortable though... see ya good luck.

My Department just recently purchased me a pair of Warrington Pro bunker boots. If you go with any boot, go with these. These are the most comfortable boots there are. A lot of people don't like the look of them, but I like them.

I have a pair of the Black Diamond boots. Whenever I pull my feet out the lining of the boots comes out with it.
