    Pro Warrington!!

    I have two pairs of Pro-Warringtons, and I love them. I wouldn't trade them for anything.

    Good Luck in your search.

      I'm with Patrick631 on this one, I love my pro-warringtons and would never wear anything else. I have the 10" w/zippers, but i never use the zippers. I'm looking into getting the new 14" model. But i would definitely go with PRO-WARRINGTONS

        I prefer the ranger firewalker.I have tried both the 8" zippered and now i have the 14" pull up leather boots. I like the 14" better.

          I am on my second pair of 14" warringtons,had my new pair for about 3 years now. My first pair lasted almost 9 years (not much leather left on the toes though. Also wear 8" zippered pair for fire investigation. Have found nothing warmer or more comfortable.

            I wore a pair of 8" Black Diamond Zip-Up's for years. Decided I would rather go back to a full bunker style boot. Bought me a pair of PW 5000's and haven't looked back

              2 questions....

              How do you deal with the zip ups? like a regular bunker boot stays in the bunker when not in use, what about the zip ups, seeings how ther're smaller


              and also, about you new pw5000's, where, and how much?

                Try Tradition Footwear. They are even in your area. www.fireboot.com

                They make a great leather pull on and zipper boot as well as wildland boots and station footwear.

                In my opinion far superior to other on the market.

                  I have 2 pair of Black Diamond boots and I wouldn't trade them for anything. I tried a few other brands and found these to be lightweight and more comfortable than the others. Any type of leather boot will run circles around the traditional rubber boots.

                      PRO Warrington is by far the best I've used.

                      I currently use the PRO zip-up style. They're set up just like if I was using regular bunker boots. Only real difference is that once I'm finished pushing my bunker pants down, I don't have 6 or 7 inches of boot top sticking out.

                        I kept mine in the gear bag w/ my Turn Outs - pulled on the pants - then stepped into the boot's and zipped em up. Was O.K. unless I had to dress out in the rain. Hard to take off shoes - pull on pants - step into boots w/o stepping on wet ground


                        ... about you new pw5000's, where, and how much?
                        www.thefirestore.com and I don't remember - ordered them in Dec (as a late Christman present to myself) but they were the lowest price on pw5000 I could find at the time.

                            I would like to comment:

                            In today's fire service one pair of boots just can't do it all. Why should you wear a structural entry boot to medical aid calls? The trend, from a risk management stand point is wear a station boot, something that is comfortable, steel toed and easy on & off. When responding to a stucture call, wear the appropriate turnout or bunker boots. In our section of the country we require a wildland boot for the urban interface incidents.

                            I have been very happy with my Redback station boots, for the 95% time I'm not in turnouts. As for turnout boots, I have to recommend the HAIX leather boot. Try this combination, your back will be healthier.

                              station boots

                              Yea I already have a pair of station boots they get the job done great for first responders etc. I have to say if youre looking for a station boot,I would recommend ROCKY as a brand. Comfortable, easy in and out and (zip up).
