I've been wearing Converse side-zip boots and love them. They are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn, and they hold up pretty well

Original S.W.A.T sidezip, non-steel toe.

Polishable, cool, and under $150


I get them from "911 supply" in Calgary Ab.

I suggest any military style and quality "Combat" boot., as they give good ankle support. You might have some BBP issues, as FDNY EMS is going through, as what they have now, but will soon go away from, a forest wildfire type boot so damnably large, members are tripping over their own feet, sometimes when negotiating staircases. One member nearly lost his feet to diabetic conditions acerbated by these things.
I'd suggest any boots with ankle support, which are impervious to oil (spilled by car crashes) or blood, and can maintain a decent shine, so you look good while "doing the deed". I do NOT recommend boot purchase based on low prices, as, you get what you pay for. Let the buyer beware!

Im not endorcing a product here or being paid in any way...

5.11 ATAC Boot!!

I have booth the 8" side zip and the 6" station version

I wear the 8" as a duty boot and the 6" is my daily everyday wear.

VERY comfortable. They are oil and BBP resistant, anti slip, have a composite toe (not steel, carbon fiber), can take a shine if needed, water resistant (I never say proof unless its a yellow rain boot LOL) and comfortable.
