Original SWAT

Original SWAT

Over the last few months, I have been wearing Original SWAT boots as my patrol boots in my various tactical environments. I’ve worn Original SWATs before, many years ago, but it has been a while since I've had their gear guarding my feet. First off, both the tans (tactical boots) and blacks (patrol) are extremely comfortable. They have been great for ankle support and, to this day, still have yet to let me down in terms of durability. The tan tactical pair that I've been wearing have done Physical training in way of running and CrossFit style workouts. I have also done some rucksack training while wearing the boots as well. To say I love them would be an understatement.

I have worn some boots that, at the end of your shift, leave your feet feeling beat up and wanting to do all but work. This is simply not the case with either pair of the Original SWATs that I received. Both are sturdy, but also have that comfortable tennis shoe feel that I enjoy.

There is no question that I absolutely love the direction that Original SWAT is going in. Their customer service, public relations, and marketing are second to none because they truly stand behind their product! I have been following them for some time via social media and have come to know that they have a great marketing and social media strategy.

They are also strong supporters of law-enforcement and first responders! If you have never looked at Original SWAT or it has been a long time since you've seen Original SWAT, it is time to check them out! You will not be disappointed; they are a first class product!
