You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for performance with these German-engineered boots – find out for yourself! Law enforcement is an equipment-dependent profession. We spend quite a bit of time researching our firearms, holsters, vehicles, flashlights, et al. We invest this time in the pursuit of equipment which will help us stay safe and injury free. Do we make the same investment of time in researching our duty boots? Probably not. We should probably start paying a little more attention to some of the most health-critical pieces of equipment we use every day. I recall, a few decades ago, a department in which administration required officers to wear a duty boot with slick outsoles (the part that touches the ground). They wanted to ensure that officers weren’t dragging mud into the building at the end of their shift. Not coincidentally, the department was struggling with how to address an epidemic of fall-related injuries to their officers. Thankfully, times have changed. A duty-grade set of boots should not only protect us from falls, but also against long-term injuries to our feet, hips and back. Budget boots do neither of those things.
