    Default Has anyone tried the new Globe Magnum 14" Boots?

    I am interested to find out if anyone has tried the new Globe Magnum 14" structural firefighting boots? They look comfortable, but I don't know anyone in my area who has tried them yet. I checked on the price and they are $305.00.

    Blessings,

    I have the 14 inch pull on boots right now, and love them. They fit like sneakers, and are much more comfortable then the old firewalkers I was in. They've held up good, and the only problems I've had, is that the opening in the top, is a little wider than a normal boot, and i have trouble getting them in my bunker pants after washing my gear, and rolling the pants back down around the boot after a call.

    Our hole dept. got them and everyone likes them. Same comments as the previous replies. Very comfortable. I agree with Jerry4184, they are to wide at the top.

    Default Were can I bought them?

    HI?, can you tell me were can I bought them?, at that price, because they are selling them to me at a bigger price (the double plus tax) I think my dealer it's kind of a thief, so I would like to see if I can find them a little cheaper.

    Thanks...

    My email is: asterix_law@hotmail.com

    Expecting to hear from you.
    Also how do you know what measure of feet do you have? there is a universal measurement for long and wide?

    Size them just like you would a sneaker... These are the only fire boot I'll say this about.

    Around my area, look up Continental Fire & Safety. They've been selling them for $270. I'm sure they'll ship them where ever you need them.

    They have been the best pull on fire boot I've worn yet, and I wear them a lot.

    As far as the station boots, I like the pull on style boots, the Redbacks or Thorogoods seem to hold up much better.

    love them, love them, love them!! Globe hit a home run with these boots. When you do get them change out the standard cushion for the more securing cushion and they do feel like a slipper.

    As for sizing we got ours a 1/2 size bigger to faciliate easier foot insertion.

    I agree, except I have found that everyone here seems to get a 1/2 size smaller for a better fit. But... to each his own! We pay $285 a pair.

    I've tried them on and that's where it ended... I didn't care for the heel locking deal. I like my Warringtons, but would like to try the next version of the Globe Magnums. I use the Globe Magnums for my duty boots... my fav.
