Leather or Rubber Structural Firefighting Boots?
I am a firefighter in Memphis, TN and am looking for some feedback concerning turnout boots. I am wondering what type of boots are being worn in different departments and areas in the country. Do you wear leather or rubber boots? What type of boots does your department supply? Which type of boot do you feel is more comfortable, durable and safer? Do you feel that leather boots are worth the added expense? If anyone can help me by answering these questions, it would greatly be appreciated. Please, feel free to add any tales or experiences to your remarks. Thanks to everyone who responds.
