  • Structural Boots

    Anyone have suggestions on new structural boots? We have been wearing Lacrosse, best boots we could find, but they no longer make structural boots. We need to find a new brand, and don't want to waste a lot of time trying ALL of the different manufactures out there, so looking for your opinions of what everyone on here likes or dislikes. Pros and cons would be great! Thanks

        I used to wear Pro Warringtons and never had any complaints about them, they were very comfortable and lasted me a long time. Now that I've tried and worn Globe boots, I won't go back if I can help it. The Globe boots are the most comfortable I've worn, feel like tennis shoes.

            Spend the little bit extra for the Globe boots. I had rubber Rangers back in the day, Warringtons until a few months ago (good boots, not uncomfortable, but not great in my opinion). The Globe boots are awesome, I've been VERY happy with mine. The Haix are really nice too, I've never had a pair in service, but I've demo'd them, I would rate them about the same as the Globe. If your department is buying them, get the Globes. If you are buying them yourself, get the Haix off the factory seconds site, they will run you $150-$200

              Another vote for the Globes. I have a pair at work, a pair at the vollie house, and a pair of their tech rescue boots. Like was said earlier, they feel like you are wearing tennis shoes.

                  I wear Black Diamond X boots and love them, but my next pair of boots will be the Globe's.

                    If you can afford them, get the Globes. I have a pair and love them. I also love my Lacrosses but as you said they are no longer made.

                        If you want disposable boots at a very high price.

                        Glued soles (see your tennis shoes). When sole (heel or toe edge) gets worn you going throw your $300 boots away or keep wearing even though unsafe?

                        Get traditional sewn on sole. It isn't going to hurt little footsies that much to break them in. You'll live.

                        I like Thorogood. Very good boot for the $.

                          Ive always had good luck with Thorogood boots. I have a pair of Pro Warrington 3006's on the way to try them out and see if I like the zip-up boot.

                            The globe structural boots are Made in Lewiston Maine by an American company employing American workers Many of them are third generation American boot makers.
