This search and rescue boot from Matterhorn boots is the perfect choice of safety footwear for first responders, military personnel, outdoor enthusiasts and others who need maximum foot protection. Its combination of solid construction and high quality materials gives it the ability to withstand stress while keeping the wearer as comfortable as possible.
Matterhorn boots is a major manufacturer of combat boots and its products are among the best-designed protective footwear on the market. Everything about this rugged boot is designed with heat, water and stress in mind. The breathable waterproof bootie provides protection when the wearer has to walk through standing liquid, while the absorbent inner lining wicks sweat away from the skin. The removable cushioned insert also helps combat moisture buildup and absorbs shock. If you're looking for a pair of combat boots that will stand a lot of tough use under any conditions you'll ever have to face, this is certainly it.
To deliver the utmost in thermal protection, this boot uses Nomex fabric with the additional strength of Kevlar. Nomex is a synthetic material valued for its low heat conductivity and fire resistance, often used in military boots, fire gear and so forth. Kevlar also has these properties, and the combination of the two provides a level of heat and fire protection that is appropriate for fire fighters and other first responders. Unlike some other products, the fire resistance of these materials is inherent in the substances themselves, and does not result from a chemical coating. Because of this, the fire resistance will not wear off with age.
Matterhorn boots are always built for real structural strength, and this one is no exception. There is a bottom plate of stainless steel and a safety toe to guard against toe-crushing blows. If something heavy drops on one of these boots, there's a good chance that the wearer will be able to walk away. The combination of full grain leather and Kevlar stitching is resistant to cutting and ripping.
Realizing that the wearers of these boots will be spending a lot of their time on ladders, the manufacturers have provided the boots with a zinc-coated ladder shank. The fire-resistant outsole completes the boot's thermal protection.
As a leading manufacturer of combat boots, the Matterhorn company has developed technologies and structural features for their footwear that have been proven to extend the lifetime of boots, so their products will not only perform well now, but will also continue to do so for many years. These durable boots are a good investment for the future, always important in situations where budgetary constraints are an issue.
This boot is appropriate for all search and rescue personnel, particularly fire fighters. Matterhorn has cut no corners in the development and manufacture of these boots, and their long life and permanent resistance to heat and fire makes them unmatched by any other brand of tactical or military boots. In those fields where safety and dependability are the only concerns, these boots will deliver both.

Tips for the Perfect Boot Fit
Military boots are built off measurements recorded on the Brannock Device. The Brannock Device is the silver foot measuring tool found in nearly every shoe store. An accurate measurement on that device should give you a good idea of what size military boots to purchase.We have created a Printable Brannock Size Chart that you can use to measure your feet for boots. Make sure that the chart prints at 100% and is not scaled. One inch on the chart must equal one inch on a ruler to accurately measure your feet using this chart.
