...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.

PT-1000 Road & Trail Running Shoe

NikkiFitness_web.jpg$130.00 Designed for the US Military. World’s first running shoe built to survive 1,000 miles. I have been wearing these shoes for just a month but already I feel their “structured cushioning” version are stable enough for my fallen arches and work well during my Cardio Sculpt classes, weight training workouts, sprint intervals and long-​​distance runs. I’m not surprised because UK Gear develops and designs performance footwear in association with the Royal Army Physical Training Corps (RAPTC) and only when the shoes have been rigorously tested and approved by the RAPTC, are they given the right to bear the Army’s crossed swords insignia. UK Gear’s products are the first in the world given the right to do this! Their PT-​​03 model is standard wardrobe for all British recruits and the new ultra-​​durable PT-​​1000 is worn by all PTI’s. This year, UK Gear have been given approval from the US Army Running Shoe Program to supply footwear to the US Military. UK Gear shoes mean business and are built to go that extra mile (or thousand miles). I will be wearing my the PT-1000’s and will update you months from now about how they are holding up. I am thinking they will last longer than my knees will!
