The uppers are made with uniform-code leather and 1000 denier nylon, to satisfy the rigid standards of law enforcement footwear. The flexible leather and breathable nylon panels keep feet moving freely and comfortably. Padded ankle collars create a cushioned fit. There’s even a rear heel kick plate on the back, so you won’t scuff your boots when you kick them off. Rust-proof lacing hardware finishes off the weather-resistant design.
Inside, fabric lining wicks sweat and moisture away from feet. Your skin stays dryer and healthier as a result. Two layers of softness absorb shock to leave feet feeling more comfortable. The orthotic footbeds are designed to fit the shape of your feet, so no part of any step will go uncushioned. They’re also removable for easy cleaning and maintenance. Under this, a layer of lightweight EVA foam has been compression-molded into the midsole to double your comfort.
Tough riveted steel shanks support arches, preventing muscle strain and pain. Original S.W.A.T. 1010 Black WinX2 Tactical Boots are tough, soft and made for the hardest jobs — but, it’s nothing your feet can’t handle.
