...for the Military

UK Gear’s training shoes were originally designed in association with the Royal Army Physical Training Corps (RAPTC). These elite fitness professionals were closely involved in the development and tested our products in some of the most inhospitable conditions on Earth. Only when approved by the Military do we consider our products... Built to survive.

Attention! PT-03 reporting for duty! This high performance running shoe (£79) produced by UK Gear in association with the British Army is the first of its kind.

It's been tested by fitness instructors from the Army Physical Training Corps, who advised on the design and tested the shoe on track, trail and road conditions over a six-month period.

They liked it so much that 450 APTC instructors all over the world now wear it. The Army haven't sold out. Colonel Robin Clifford, head of the Army's Commercial Branch, says it's a pioneering initiative which shows the force's expertise in a positive way.

It's worked so well that there's a gym shoe for indoor use currently in progress. Our tester wore the PT-03 over a two-month period and reports back that it is a tremendously supportive, comfortable wear-all-day type of breathable shoe.
