Smoke jumpers and other wildland firefighters depend on their boots to perform in the most dangerous and demanding conditions. That's why the improved, better-fitting Flashpoint II is built with fire retardant, triple-stitched leather, Nomex fire resistant stitching and a reinforced fire an abrasion resistant rubber heel and toe to stand up to the challenge. Danner wanted to give wildland firefighters and smokejumpers the toughest, safest boot that human hands could build. To make it happen, they used Vibram Fire Logger outsoles, special Nomex stitching, and fire-retardant leather. And here's the best part: Danner built all these features into a boot that's remarkably comfortable to wear.
