If you are one of the many brave men and women that perform the duties of a firefighter, then you know how vital it is that every article of clothing you put on keeps you protected. While this of course includes your helmet, coat, facemask, and gloves, one of the most important pieces of equipment is your firefighter boots.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is the gold standard for protective gear worn by firefighters in extreme conditions. NFPA certification is strict. A manufacturer’s products, such as leather firefighter boots, need to be rigorously tested under specific conditions before they receive NFPA certification.
