The new SHADOW™ XF 14" boots have a remarkably flexible platform for a better fit, a cushioned and contoured sole for a better grip, and an advanced fit system that makes them feel broken in right out of the box. The embedded HEELPORT system holds your heel securely while cushioning your ankle.


Flame-Resistant, Water-Resistant Heavy Duty Leather

Pebble grain leather with tumbled leather collar.

GORE® CROSSTECH® Footwear Fabric
A full-height bootie liner made from a package of Omaha lining fabric, 300g insulation, and GORE® CROSSTECH® moisture barrier provides protection unmatched by any other waterproof, breathable barrier.

KEVLAR® Protective Shield
Protects the GORE® CROSSTECH® moisture barrier, provides cut resistance, and adds thermal protection.

Pull Straps
Flexible NOMEX® webbing pull straps slide easily under turnout pants and are kind to your legs.

Padded Composite Shin Guard
Provides extra protection when you are working on a ladder.

HEELPORT™ Internal Fit System
Holds your heel securely so it won’t slip while cushioning your ankle.

Composite Heel Counter
Individually molded to fit each size perfectly.

VIBRAM® Heel Bumper
For wear resistance caused by toe-to-heel boot removal.

Composite Safety Toe Cap
Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, and exceeds NFPA standards for safety.

VIBRAM® Toe Bumper
Made from same rugged compound as the outsole for abrasion resistance when crawling.

Dual-Density Enhanced 3D Molded Footbed System
Removable dual-density footbeds are contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your feet and to provide arch support. Urethane foam bottom layer provides durable cushioning while a micro-cellular open-cell foam top layer delivers cool, all-day comfort. Moisture-wicking and anti-microbial fabric top pulls moisture away from your feet. An additional set of polymer inserts are provided to install under the footbeds when a snugger fit is desired.

3D Composite Lasting Board
Lasted to boot uppers with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot and a torsionally stable heel. Works together with the footbed to conform to your foot’s shape.

Composite Shank
Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, springs back to shape better.

Composite Puncture Protection
Far more flexible than a steel plate and doesn’t transmit heat or cold. Exceeds NFPA standards.

VIBRAM® Contoured Cup Outsole
Molded outsole wraps onto the leather upper for athletic shoe performance. Flame, abrasion, oil, acid and slip-resistant compound engineered for high-traction and durability even during prolonged exposure to extremes of heat and cold.

Athletic Footwear Construction
Two-part crosslinking adhesive bonds outsoles and the upper. Without stiff welts and ribbed mid-soles, this attachment process is far more flexible.

Slip-Resistant Tread
Siping – thin slits cut into flat areas across the sole – opens up when flexed to provide additional traction on water and ice. Self-cleaning lugs and omnidirectional tread pattern designed for superior performance in all terrains and when working on ladders. Optional VIBRAM® ARCTIC GRIP PRO Outsoles are available for even better slip resistance on wet ice.

Extended Size Range
Men’s: Full Sizes 5-18 and Half Sizes 5 1/2-15 1/2 in Narrow, Medium, Wide, and X-Wide widths. Wide calf model available in all sizes.
Women’s: Full Sizes 5-12 and Half Sizes 5 1/2-11 1/2 in Narrow, Medium, Wide, and X-Wide widths. Wide calf model available in all sizes.
