Original SWAT specializes in one thing: tactical footwear. While other companies make an assortment of tactical gear and clothing in addition to their footwear, Original SWAT started in 1999 building high-quality tactical boots made in the U.S. and it continues to focus solely on this mission. The company crafts boots for people standing for long hours, pounding the pavement or on the battlefield. Hard work requires serious footwear and Original SWAT dedicates itself to creating the most advanced footwear for law enforcement professionals, military personnel, EMTs and industrial workers. The company uses a last made with computer-aided design technology to better match the shape and weight of the modern foot, while many other companies have been using the same last for 50 years. Original SWAT also utilizes lightweight materials to boost performance, endurance and comfort.
