Bates® Footwear and the Police Unity Tour Joined Forces to Develop the Inaugural Limited Edition Police Unity Tour Bike Shoe
Rockford, MI – Bates, a leading law enforcement footwear brand and corporate supporter of the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), and the Police Unity Tour, the largest financial donor in NLEOMF history, have joined forces to develop the inaugural limited edition Police Unity Tour bike shoe.
The shoe, tested and approved by the Police Unity Tour, features the Unity Tour logo and is dated May 12, 2010.
Galls, our nation’s leading law enforcement retailer and solutions provider, is the exclusive reseller of the Unity Tour bike shoe.
The Police Unity Tour’s main purpose is to raise awareness of Law Enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty with their second goal being to raise funds for National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum. The Police Unity Tour has grown from 18 members to over 1200 nationwide. Because of their efforts and your generosity, over 7 million dollars has been donated to the Memorial, making the Police Unity Tour the single largest supporter of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
