UK Gear training shoes

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone have any experience with the UK Gear shoes? Are they well made, comfortable, long-lasting, value for money, etc?
     
  2. Reccomended by ASPT :wink:
     
  3. They're not - they're being trialled by the ASPT. Crucial difference.

    They'll be the dogs balls when they work the kinks out of them; they've taken the best bits from Asics, Saucony & NB shoes.
     
  4. Nah the PT03 is the finished product mate.
     
  5. They are still being trialled tho. I'd imagine a PT04 will be in the pipeline.
     
  6. I think they are very comfortable, as long as you double fasten the laces! :D
     
  7. Thanks. Never heard of Saucony but I do appreciate the quality of Asics and NB, so I shall go and purchase a pair soon.
     
  8. I bought mine from the ABF website - think they get a cut?
     
  9. Well in to your sports then!
     
  10. For running shoe purposes, there are 3 main types of feet:

    pronators - flat feet, the foot rolls in;

    normal - as the name suggests;

    supinators - high arches, the foot rolls out (i.e.the opposite of flat feet).

    Before buying a pair of these trainers, find out what type of feet they're made for, and what type of feet you've got.
     
  11. Never heard of these training shoes. Why does the MoD bother with these training shoes? And trials, how, what do they do other than put them on their feet?!!! Beyond basic everyone seems to buy their own anyway.
