And these are my FAVORITE boots. I got them at Dicks Sporting Goods. They are "men's" however a simple sizing can determine what size a woman would need. These things never hurt my feet or pinch. And there wasn't any "break in" time either. They were comfortable from the first time I put them on. And they provide EXCELLENT ankle support while being flexible for bending. I have had mine for three years now so they are also long lasting. My only complaint is the laces seem short for a taller boot. However, they do zip on the sides which is nice for those times when you need them on NOW for a call.
Sorry it took so very long to get back with you. You had posted on my page many months ago about clothing issues that I to had encountered in this field. These are the ones that I've managed to find. The top link is my personal favorite because of the many pockets. However they do come close to the belly button. But if you want something lower the second link isn't bad.
Hello back to you! Hope you are well. At some point, I will have to discuss with you the differences between Canadian and European firefighting standards and experiences. I think it will be interesting to hear how you do things with your department, and how they compare with mine. Stay safe!
I wish they would make gear specifically for women I have yet to find gloves or pants that fit properly I've been in for 6 yrs n still haven't found much of anything for female firefighters other than firefighters wife n stuff like that
