Station Boots
Model FFB 105 (non-steel)

These USA-made boots are 8 inches high, and are similar to the Chippewa Firefighter (Ruttman, model 27422) that I have long sung praises about. These boots are made from a softer, less shiny, leather. In 2022, I bought a pair of FFB100 boots that are almost identical to the Chippewa Ruttman since that boot is no longer made.

These boots are made of 5-5-1/2 oz high shine corrected grain leather. The boot has a padded cushion collar and cushioned ankle pads for support and comfort. Unlike the Chippewa model, the tongue area is cushioned with 1/4" poly-foam for extra comfort. The boot interior is lined with double-ply Cambrelle.

The boot is Goodyear welted and has a full storm welt, so they are water-resistant. The boot has a triple-ribbed steel shank and extra-strength heel counters. The sole is a Vibram 100F non-marking oil-resistant lug sole.

The central boot zipper is made from non-corrosive metal. Different from the Chippewa, this boot has longer laces which makes it incredibly easier to lace in the boot zipper and provide room for the ankle and foot to fit.

Overall, these boots are a little softer and slightly less heavy than their Chippewa Firefighter cousins. I purposely bought them without a steel toe. They are very comfortable and for the money, a strong competitor to the Chippewa Ruttman.
