Black Diamond Fire Boots Receive the Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association

The First and Only Fire Boot to Receive the Coveted APMA Seal

Woburn, MA - Black Diamond is pleased to announce it is the first fire boot company to be awarded the coveted Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). The APMA Seal of Acceptance was created to inform podiatric physicians and consumers about products whose quality, safety, and effectiveness promote good foot health.

In order to qualify for the Seal products must pass a grueling scientific evaluation by a panel of APMA members and rigorous testing at a recognized laboratory. The results are then evaluated by a committee of doctors of podiatric medicine who decide to grant or deny the use of the Seal.

"We are proud to be the first fire boots to be recognized and awarded the APMA Seal of Acceptance," said Black Diamond President, Rob Mills. "The APMA's efforts to promote better foot health are consistent with our efforts to build boots that will support the brave men and women in the fire service as they provide world-class support and protection to our communities."

Black Diamond is the leader in performance protective footwear and its boots are tested in the harshest conditions on a daily basis at fire departments around the world in countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Thailand, China, Taiwan, Canada and the United States of America. Utilizing proprietary footwear constructions and "best in class" components and materials such as CROSSTECH® and Ortholite®, Black Diamond builds a better boot for workers who demand all-day comfort, support and protection.
