At SHOT Show this week, Original S.W.A.T. touted what it says is the next generation of law enforcement duty boots.

The Stockton, Calif.-based company’s new H.A.W.K. (High Agility Weight Kinetics) boots feature a new support system called Flex-Lite. Original S.W.A.T. sales rep Jason Riepert says Flex-Lite is a multi-layered support system that’s not based on an athletic shoe last like many contemporary boots.

The H.A.W.K. version of Flex-Lite consists of five elements: an outsole that offers excellent traction and slip resistance, a shock-absorbing EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate heel, a lightweight molded EVA midsole that is contoured to match the shape of a human foot for comfort on long shifts, an airport friendly molded stability board with corrugated ridges that provide torsional support through the heel and arch, and a TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) cuff that protects the heel during dynamic foot movement.

H.A.W.K. boots are available in 9-inch side-zip versions with optional waterproofing. List price is $139.99 for the waterproof model and $119.99 for the standard.
