Protecting your feet during firefighting and rescue operations is an important part of a personal protective equipment (PPE) ensemble. For years, rescue boots have been made with steel shanks to save your feet from punctures and skin guards for lower-leg protection. Now, the Ulti-Met Boot from Thorogood offers a new layer of protection to the top of your foot that uses an I-MET metatarsal protection to guard your feet from heavy objects. The NFPA-approved boot contains a waterproof barrier and is compliant with bloodborne pathogen requirements.
