UK Gear running shoes approved by US Army

UK Gear has won approval to supply advanced specification training shoes to the US Army.

Commenting on the agreement with the US Army, David Hinde, UK Gear’s founder and chief executive, said: “This highly prized approval is the successful culmination of three years’ intensive work, and I am delighted that the PT-03 running shoe, born from our unique relationship with the British Army Physical Training Corps, has been chosen by the US Army.”

He added: “It has given us particular pleasure that a training shoe worn by the British Army should be adopted by the US military. It is, at the same time, a giant step for UK Gear on the way to meeting our ambition of being the training shoe of choice for military personnel worldwide.”

During 2010 the PT-03 will be distributed across the US Army’s reception centres and is expected to be worth in excess of $10million in export sales.
