2012 Chippewa
Firefighter Boots
Lor, Model 20242

I received these Chippewa Firefighter Boots (Model 20242) from Fire Department when I was made a Life Member in 2012. I received that honor for working with them on local fire safety home improvement projects since 1997.

The boots are completely leather lined, have an EPS steel toe, ANSI 75 steel bottom plate, and Kush-N-Kollar. They are about 9 inches tall. These boots have a Vibram 700 (Chevron, flat, yellow plug) sole. My other Chip Firefighter boots have a Vibram 100 big lug sole.

These boots are the most comfortable, durable, and well-constructed boots I have worn when I ride my Harley. Despite the leather lining, they don't get hot. I have worn them for very long days when riding my bike and my feet never hurt. This is why they are highly recommended on my Complete Guide to Motorcycle Boots.

The boots are designed in Station Boot style. The unique design feature of these boots is the center zipper in the front, which makes them easy to pull on and take off. The zipper insert has two side laces that when adjusted once, don't need to be fooled with again.

Information and photos illustrating how to lace these boots is below and on the Boots Wiki, here.


I own seven pairs of these Chippewa station boots.

For a different appearance, I tried using red laces in these boots.
Note, red laces do not mean anything. These are not "skinhead" boots

After a while, I returned to using black laces in these boots. I did not like how red laces made these boots look so different.
