I've a pair of Warrington FF boots which have had VERY LITTLE wear and NO hazmat exposure. Now BOTH soles of the boots are detaching and even the steel midsole is sliding out. It appears that these can be repaired, however has anyone else experienced this type of failure with little wear? In fact, theyve never been used in an actual fire, simply extrication. Let me hear from you.

I'd take them back to your dealer. Our local guy has always been very good with getting problems solved. We had very few Warrington issues but the ones we have were resolved and he even can get older ones repaired or refurbished as needed.

We have never had an issue with Warrington. Other manufactures boots that our department uses have had to be replaced due to inner-linings coming out when the member removes their foot from the boot.
All-in-all the Warrington never has been a problem. I would talk to the vendor and have them replace the defective boots. I would also ask the vendor to send them back to the manufacture so they can determine the problem. Also ask for a result of their findings of this problem.K-9 hunt, the ultimate challange.

What model of boot are you having a problem with? I think early on there were some issues with the 5000s that were immediately addressed, and I think it involved some sort of separation issue. I honestly think Warrington will take care of you if you contact them through either your dealer or directly.

Nope had mine for a few years and the only problem was the toe cap was wearing through but I sent them off and had the cap replaced at no cost. Used for extrication???? Have you ever got gasoline on them?? Even a small amount????I.A.C.O.J IRISH TATTOOED-HOOLIGAN

Had mine for 4 years, threads that hold the trim along the top are chafing from where they contact my bunkers but no real complaints.______________________________ __________________

I had 2 sets of Warrington's do the same thing as BFDLT32 stated.
(Mind you I got these about 10 years ago)
The sole inside by the heel started pull out when I tried to remove them.
Was quite a funny show to watch Me fighting to get the boots off beside the truck. Praying the tone didnt hit as I fought with them.
Was actually quite common, several others had the same problem.
We all got our boots around the same time. They were an early style of the boot. They were very slippery in cold weather. The manufacturer ( soon after we got them) paid for us to send our boots out to be resoled with a softer sole.
We were told that the old sole had to be ground off, that may have been the problem.
I havent heard of any problems with the newer Warringtons
