Hey fellow NYer! Greenblatts in Hauppauge prolly has them - although I wouldn't know, I just wear dark sneakers.

Try Firestore.com

If you know your size, of course. I highly reccommend Rocky Eliminators...They are quiet, waterproof, warm and have a cambrelle lining. Also Warrington makes a kicka$$ station boot that is waterproof too.

I see it this way. I don't get paid for this. I'm not paying for fancy shoes out of my pocket, even if it's tax deductible. That's just a pain in the butt. Then I'd have to save receipts. If they want me to wear special shoes, the Corps or FD will need to provide them to me. So what I do, is I run my sneakers to the point where I can't work out in them anymore, but they're still usable, they become EMS sneakers. Highly disposable, comfy, and best of all, not expensive since I've already gotten my use out of them.

I get mine at Payless Shoes.

Basically black workboots.


But you want specialty shoes in Nassau County

There's a uniform store on Westbury Ave. in Carle Place ( forget the name I think it's Economy )

Or try the Buff Shop on Wantagh Ave. in Wantagh

Or the Cop Shop on North Broadway in Massapequa

There's a uniform store in Great Neck also, not sure exactly where though.

mine are original s.w.a.t.'s(classic 9's for anybody that cares)

wicked comfortable, side zip for easy on/off, light as a feather, although dissapointingly not waterproof(it is available on these boots, i juts didnt buy it).

for ugly weather, my matterhorns do the trick, although i wouldnt wear them everyday(at a price tag of $250, these WONT get puked on!)

Dont go to Galls, theyre overpriced, usually low quality, most likely will screw up yer order and will definetly offer crap customer service, they used to be a great company but are now just peddling crap under a once trusted name.


I got my boots from skechers.com, shechers are awesome shoes so i went with them for work boots and was very happy. Youll pay 60- 90 for a good pair of boots from them, but its worth the dough, I have a three year old pair of shoes from them, and my usual shoe lifespan is under a year.
