UK Gear

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

We have been looking at the UK Gear brand for some time but this new video series from US Cav prompted us to put some information out.

UK Gear footwear is developed in conjunction with the British Army Physical Training Corps who are involved in every stage of the development of their products and test them in some of the harshest conditions on earth. Only when approved by the Army, does UK Gear consider their products…Built To Survive. But don’t let the name fool you. UK Gear was chosen last year to supply the US Military Academy at West Point with the GT-02 Multisport training shoe.

UK Gear is available from US Cavalry.
