Original S.W.A.T.

Original S.W.A.T. Logo
In 1999 the first Original S.W.A.T.® boot was designed. The goal was to make footwear that was specifically designed for elite S.W.A.T. teams.

The challenge facing the industry was how to make a boot that could meet the demands of the different environments that law officers face - while being comfortable enough to support a double shift.

The answer was to re-evaluate the way that boots had been made for 60 years - no more “make your foot fit the boot.” But now Original S.W.A.T. was making boots that fit your feet.

The revolution was in using lasts that were influenced by an athletic structure; fitting the foot in the right places while offering the support of a boot, thus forming their legendary NO BREAK-IN PERIOD.

In a 2006 interview, founder Terry Mackness predicted that the tactical industry would continue to feed off of the advances in athletic footwear. In 2019, Original S.W.A.T. released the Alpha Series - their most athletic boot to date.

I wanted to like these boots but the zipper side dug into my ankle. The soles and heel are very thin,so the wear could be compromised. There is no support in the inserts. Otherwise they are good looking, but not for me.

Definitely runs small, and not a situation of the shoe would loosen up after a few time of "breaking them in." Could not get my foot inside without scrunching up my toes. Not able to straighten my foot out flat to try and walk. Had to return.

Fit was perfect the easy off zipper created a fold if bunched and is uncomfortable but a finger slide to reposition it no problem overall great shoes thinking they will outlast all previous I’ve tried , and they are easy on a fused spine

I love them. I bought these for work but they are really so comfortable I wear them with everything. I wear on a daily basis for work and on the weekend. I did add insoles with arch and heel support for my flat feet. I work 10 hour shifts on my feet all day and they hold up well. They match with my jeans just as well with my dresses. Gotten so many compliments.
