Army on the run in 'super trainers'

>>16 September 2004

A new training shoe designed by the Army was launched yesterday.

The PT-03 is the first commercial product to be developed in association with the Army - and has its crossed swords logo under the shoe's tongue. Fitness instructors from the elite Army Physical Training Corps advised trainer manufacturer UK Gear on the design.

The shoes were then put through six months of rigorous tests, which involved instructors running on roads, tracks and up hills. David Hinde, managing director of Warwickshire-based UK Gear, said: "The PT-03 is a high performance running shoe.

"It was created with the help of some of the fittest people on the planet - the Army's own fitness instructors - which means it will stand up to the demands of any runner.!

The PT-03 will be available from specialist running shops, priced £79.

They will also be worn by the APTC's 450 instructors worldwide.
