Review from Sgt Tanner, Fort Benning

UK Gear, XC-09

Bought a pair of your XC-09 cross countries in August after weak-sauce Nike's fell apart. Found them at the Fort Benning PX. All I can say is they are hands down the must rugged, high-speed pair of shoes I've ever owned! Tough as s**t and hell of some traction. Tread is so damn deep, I'm fairly sure if I was inclined to dig a two-man foxhole with grenade sumps, I could do it using the XC-09. Shoe is badass!

Since this August I have ran my pair thru saturating Georgia humidity and the egg-frying Oklahoma sun. Shoe has held up remarkably thru all the nasty s**t I could find. Sand, gravel, hard ball, Oklahoma red clay, up hill, down hill, hot, cold, ruck-runs and rain, these shoes have performed flawlessly. If I could find some lava to run on I'm confident they'd hold up.

Currently I'm serving out some voluntold time as recruiter for the U.S. Army. I recommend no other shoe to Future Soldiers waiting to ship to Basic Training.

Damn fine work UK Gear!

p.s. Starting in January, a few of the guys in my recruiting station are gonna start training for a 50k run. If you need some test subjects to punish your 1,000 mile shoe, we would be honored to do it.
