Stew Smith, former US Navy Seal Trainer: Completes the 1,000 mile challenge wearing UK Gear's PT-1000's!

>>01 August 2011

Hi UK Gear,

For the past 12 months, I have been using the UK Gear PT-1000 for military training and testing the claim that they are built to survive 1,000 miles.

I have now ran more that 1200 miles in my one pair and can confidently report that they have indeed surpassed the test and lasted the journey. There have not been any HOT SPOTS to report when running, the fit is perfect and I have received no injuries during the 1000 mile test! In fact, the out-sole and tread are still very much in tact and I am still able to wear the shoes for casual day-to-day activities.

A great shoe UK Gear!
