The robust and extremely light shoe is ideal for police officers whose working day consists of long strenuous hours on their feet. The innovatively designed shoe is equipped with 2-layer PU midsole, with shock absorption eliminating any pressure on the joints and spine.

The high specification shoe is also designed with fabric technology with a strong sole resistant to oil or petrol, GORE-TEX® technology and material isolated against the heat or cold.

Features of the Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 black GTX also includes a special lacing system which moulds the shoe to the foot to avoid any pressure points or slipping and weatherproof properties which make these shoes effortlessly suitable for all weather.

The fire safety boot, designed with low light reflective strips, has excellent wear-resistance and anti-slip properties effectively reducing user wear and tear, as well as maximising overall safety. Safety is further amplified through the steel puncture resistant midsoles which prevents nails or sharp objects penetrating the boot at the scene of the incident.

The Fire Eagle Vario boot is also equipped with GORE CROSSTECH® 4-layer technology for watertight protection eliminating the risk of user infection.
