In creating the Original SWAT brand, comfort and performance were the objectives. To squeeze as much out of each area without compromise is the boot maker's art.
The quality of materials and components makes a difference in performance & durability. High performance linings are important as they have to wick significant amounts of moisture away from the feet. The heat formed heel counter is the most important component, ensuring the stability of the foot and preventing slippage laterally and lengthwise. Lack of stability is the major cause of fatigue and injury.
Shock absorbing materials play a big part in preventing fatigue and injury. Compression Molded EVA is an inch of closed cell foam-injected under pressure and is, by far, the most durable and effective material used for shock absorption. It does not hold memory and gives the wearer total foot support.
Additional support comes from a riveted sandwich lasting board that contains a steel shank, providing both torsional and arch support, which are important where foot strike angles are uneven and extra weight is being carried. A removable contour molded innersole complete the support process, ensuring that the smaller muscles of the foot do no have to work excessively under extreme performance conditions.
