Choosing The Right Police Boots

Whether you have 20 minutes or 20 years of experience in the police force you will know that your Police Boots are probably the most important piece of gear any officer will have to buy. So choosing the right style of boot is an important decision.

In today’s post I will compare the different style of police boots and compare pricing, aiding you in what will prove to be the right decision for you. Using the website http://www.patrolstore.com/ as my pricing source I will try to find you the best value for the product you are looking for. I am using this website as they guarantee the cheapest price on the market, however if you are able to find a better deal elsewhere, they promise to match it.

I'm going to start with the Magnum Range of Police Boots that are fastly becoming the most popular boots on the market. They offer a wide range of police boots so if Magnum are the brand for you then be sure to check out their full catalogue as I will only cover a few in my blog.

Offering competitive prices on their high quality police boots factors their growth over the last couple of years. The most popular Police Boot that Magnum offer is the Magnum Classic CEN Boots offering stability and comfort. This particular boot is popular amongst doormen tagging them as breathable, reliable and comfortable. You can pick up a pair of these for £52.50

Magnums current best seller is the Magnum Panther 8.0 Side Zip and there is a good reason for this. Hugely popular amongst police officers on patrol with the boot being labelled as very comfortable with a long life expectancy. The zip makes putting the boots on easy and quicker as you do not have to lace up every time. In all; they offer good all round protection for the foot and when tied right and tightly enough provide protection for the ankle. You can get your hands on a pair of these for £47.98

For the lucky ones with a bit more disposable income that really want to buy a high quality pair of police boots then 5.11 XPRT Tactical Boots would be a good choice. These tactical boots are the tactical boots of choice for urban tactical operators. The full-grain leather and nylon upper material is comfortable and durable providing longevity. For full specs check out the link as it would take me all day to do it any justice. You can buy these for around £110.

I will finish with my personal favourite although again you will need to fork out more money to get your hands on a pair of these. I am talking about the Lowa Boots Mountain GTX that seem to tick all of the boxes. General feedback from these police boots has been fantastic. Completely waterproof these boots also vent out sweat within the boots keeping your feet completely dry from first to last. Lowas Mountain GTX boots are a truly top-class model suitable for even the most difficult terrains and testing weather conditions. To get your hands on a great pair of boots like these it will set you back around £128.

I hope this has been helpful to some extent in your quest for new police boots. Always make sure you get as much information on the product as you can before you make a purchase and always ask about a warranty.
