YDS/Goliath and PAC FIRE AUSTRALIA are releasing three new fire boots. The “all new” Hades Crosstech lined structural boot, the new Ignis non-Crosstech structural/wildland boot and the new Apollo wildfire/rescue boot. All the new boots are certified to the relevant Australian fire standards and EN footwear requirements, and are made to the high YDS quality standards to meet Australian operational fire requirements.
All are made on a new wider last and feature sizes three to 15 and new dual-density injected rubber soles have moulded scuff caps to cover the front of the boots with no stitching or joins to come away from the boot. Other features include, “Tex” nail-proof protective midsoles, comfort inner foot pads, padded ankle protection and rugged construction to survive the toughest operational situations.
The Apollo features a new easy-to-operate fast lace extraction system, Tencate waterproof fire retardant cloth inserts to assist in cooling the interior of the boot. The Apollo is made on the same wide last as the Ignis and Hades featuring the moulded scuff cap. This boot is extremely lightweight but constructed to meet the demands of the Australian rural fire operations.
The new Ignis boot features a S3 waterproof, hydrophobic fire retardant breathable upper leather outer and conforms to EN15090:2012. A Coolmax quick drying liner assists in sweat management. The Hades and Ignis feature a special cut resistant strip running along 35mm line to protect from punctures and lacerations. This is in addition to the textile mid sole.
