"With prices steadily increasing over the last few years, it was time to deliver the next great value-minded performance first tactical boot in the market, and the Force boots certainly meet the need," said Brett Weitl, Original S.W.A.T. Marketing Director. "These boots are absolutely built to perform and offer the out-of-the-box comfort that Original S.W.A.T. is known for. We developed a new outsole for this collection and were blown away with its performance on the James test (industry standard). These things tested off the charts, making them some of the most slip-resistant boots on the market, and with MSRP at only $89.99 for the waterproof boot and $79.99 for the side-zip, they are also the most valuable to a very broad audience of uniform boot end users."
