...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.

The search for a spectacular athletic shoe is over.

The UK Gear PT-1000 athletic shoe is an incredible product that today's Warrior-Athlete needs in performance and durability.

A Soldier depends on shoes that are comfortable, successfully perform in varying conditions, and withstand daily strenuous use. Over the last few months I have punished my PT-1000 shoes on hard surface roads, fitness trails in the dense woods, and in the crowded gym. I am extremely satisfied with how the shoe has survived.

The shoe fits well and I had no problems with comfort. The toe box is large enough to accommodate the foot as it expands during physical activity and still maintains its fit and comfort. The shoe has a great mesh design that allows for breathability with heat, and aids during foot expansion. The lacing kept the shoes snug, but not to the point that my feet hurt on the top. The cushioning was awesome throughout the whole sole, and did not seem to breakdown to the point where I could feel every rock on the trail. The shoe was not clumsy with its weight, and I did not feel sluggish while walking or running. All of these great benefits resulted in a painless experience while wearing the shoes.

An athletic lifestyle tends to break shoes down fast. UK Gear has taken the toughest materials and produced a well designed shoe that meets the tough demand. The extreme durability of the shoe means that I did not have to go to the store and purchase new shoes every three months. I get the most bang for my buck. Soldiers always want to invest in a strong product that will survive the test of time. The PT-1000 achieves that end.

The UK Gear PT-1000 athletic shoe is fantastic innovation. Built to Survive, so the Warrior Athlete can Persevere.
