How one tactical boot solved the comfort and durability problem
Choosing the wrong footwear does more than impact comfort; it can play havoc on an officer’s biomechanics. Poorly fitting footwear can lead to pain in the heels, ankles, knees, hips and lower back—as well as missed workdays. A poll conducted by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) recently found that 55 percent of Americans missed a day of work because of foot problems.
That’s why it is important police have the right footwear, said Sean Thompson, a sales manager at ALTAI. The Minnesota-based and locally-owned company makes boots for cops and outdoor enthusiast, including the ALTAI MF Tactical Tall/Short Black version that promises the comfort and the durability cops need.
