Thorogood debuts FireStalker Elite Wildland boot
The boot, which withstands 500 degree temperatures for up to 5 minutes, gives firefighters comfort and protection
Thorogood released its first NFPA 1977-certified wildland hiking boot that lets firefighters wear a boot that withstands 500 degree temperatures for up to 5 minutes.
FireStalker Elite features a new Vibram FIRE All-Terrain Sole (ATS) that allows the tread to wrap up the sides of the boot to provide multi-angle traction and stability on uneven surfaces, the company said.
An ankle lock system keeps the foot supported and secure and the leather is resistant to both flames and cuts.
Furthermore, a moisture-wicking removable foot bed cradles and cushions the foot for long-term comfort.
