PT-1000 - Sgt Sammie Davison, British Army

>>05 September 2011

Hi UK Gear,Sgt Sammie Davison

Well I am truly converted to UK Gear trainers! After 13-years in the British Army, finally a trainer that is specific to females and so ergonomic it almost feels like you are wearing nothing on your feet!

The PT-1000 (SC) shoe is stable yet light, supportive yet flexible enough to cope with any track or trail I can throw at it; when it is raining or there is a river in the way the shoe responds in every positive way it could.

I have ran a few races in the shoe, including the New Forest 10 event and I will be using my PT-1000's in next month's Bupa Great South Run. The shoes have never let me down, never caused a blister or even a hot spot right from the word go.

There was no required period of 'breaking in' with the PT-1000. So I will leave you with the knowledge that that this shoe has made my running so much more enjoyable and comfortable.

Thank you UK Gear!
