All American 400
Firefighter Boots

These boots are made by the All American Boot Mfg, Inc., located in Sun Valley, California, USA. The boot is model number 400.

The boots are OSHA compliant, heat-resistant, and have a Vibram 100F (fire-resistant) lug sole. They are 9" tall and have a padded ankle collar and built-in cushion insole. The toe style is called "oblique." It is a box-style toe instead of rounded.

The difference between this boot and its brother, the All American Firefighter Boot model 401 is that these boots have an oil-tanned, dull appearance, while the 401s are very shiny. Otherwise, they are the same boot.

The boots are built in the station-boot style, meaning that they have a boot zipper down the middle that is laced in on both sides to adjust to the wearer's foot. (Instructions on how to lace a zipper into station boots is here on the Boots Wiki.

I choose to wear boots like this (and my Chippewa Firefighter Boots) when riding my Harley in hot weather. The boots are comfortable and do not get hot, so they are a great choice as tactical boots with good traction required for heavyweight motorcycle operation. I bought these boots from Buds Work Boots of San Diego, California.

This video gives a demonstration about how to lace this style of boot with a boot zipper.
