Our CommitmentTo You

You can finally say farewell to heavy, stiff, rubber boots once and for all. Globe PROXIMITY is the world's first leather proximity boot. It's remarkably flexible with the same cushioned and contoured sole, athletic footwear construction, and custom fit system as our original SUPREME™ structural boots. Meeting the radiant heat requirements of Proximity as well as the Structural requirements of NFPA 1971, PROXIMITY can be the one boot you wear for all your calls. Made in the U.S.A.

Flame Resistant, Water-Resistant Heavy Duty Leather

  • Specially softened tumbled leather in high flex areas to move with you.

Enhanced ePTFE Barrier Bootie

  • A full-height bootie liner made from a package of Omaha lining fabric, 300g insulation, and enhanced ePTFE barrier to provide liquid and chemical protection.

KEVLAR® Blend Protective Shield

  • Protects the CROSSTECH® moisture barrier, provides cut resistance, and adds thermal protection.

Aluminized PBI® Fabric

  • An added layer between the leather shell and the KEVLAR® blend fiber batting provides additional radiant and conductive heat protection to meet the higher thermal requirements for Proximity Fire Fighting.


3M SCOTCHLITE™ Reflective Material

  • For added visibility.


Pull Straps

  • Flexible NOMEX® webbing pull-straps reinforced with leather slide easily under turnout pants and are kind to your legs.

3D Molded and Padded 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.

Composite Safety Toe Cap

  • Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, and exceeds NFPA standards for safety.

VIBRAM® Toe Bumper

  • Made from the same rugged compound as the outsole for abrasion resistance when crawling.


3D Molded Removable Footbeds

  • Contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your foot and to provide arch support. Moisture-wicking and anti-microbial fabric top layer. A second, thicker removable footbed is provided for a snugger fit or when wearing lighter socks.

3D Composite Lasting Board

  • Molded, contoured, and 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 the shape of your foot.

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

  • 2-part cross-linking adhesive bonds outsoles to 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 omni-direction tread pattern designed for superior performance in all terrains and when working on ladders.

Extended Size Range

  • Men's: 5-16 (full and half sizes) and 17 (full size only) in Narrow, Medium, Wide, and X-Wide widths. Wide calf model available in all sizes.
  • Women's: 5-12 (full and half sizes) in Narrow, Medium, Wide, and X-Wide widths. Wide calf model available in all sizes.
