Forefront


From the streets to the site, from the tower to the ditch, The Forefront is the first on scene and the last one out. Sometimes misinterpreted as the "foreman", the forefront is paired with a white Vibram christy wedge sole, it allows for all day comfort, support, and careful contact in dangerous conditions, like walking on beams.

Best option: Try on boots In-store is the best option and the most recommended option because it has the highest rate of success. You can get your feet into a pair of boots, know exactly what to expect, and be confident about your sizing. We have multiple locations where you can visit a JK Boots specialist and get sized correctly.


Next Best option: Try on boots Out-of-store via our mailed try on service requires a fitsheet, $50.00, and is the next best option. You will get a chance to try on boots and be sure about your sizing. You can choose to either tell us which size to send to you, or, we can suggest a size for you according to the exact measurements you send. 

(NOTE: We will use the exact measurements you provide to suggest a size for you.) There is an extra charge which covers shipping to and from. We will include a return label inside the box. Make sure you do not wear the boots outside, or, apply any oil to them. Them must remain in brand new condition. 


Measurements option: Build to measure means you will not be trying on any boots. This requires that you send fitsheets to us. This is a great option. Know that we will build exactly according to the measurements you provide. If you select this option, trust that we will build the boots exactly according to your measurements. Remember, If for any reason they are not what you expect, unfortunately they are non refundable because they are custom sized for your feet only.
