UK Gear's training shoes were originally designed in association with the Royal Army Physical Training Corps (RAPTC). These elite fitness professionals were closely involved in the development and tested our products in some of the most inhospitable conditions on Earth. Only when approved by the Military do we consider our products... Built to survive.
PT-1000 Road & Trail Running Shoe - Structured Cushioning
The world’s first running shoe built to survive 1,000 miles!
The proprietary technology built into the PT-1000 took over 8 years to develop with the Royal Army Physical Training Corps, culminating in 40 of these physically demanding instructors running thousands of miles in final prototypes. This, combined with an extensive durability test programme at SATRA laboratories, means that UK Gear can confidently claim to have developed the world’s first running shoe built to survive 1,000 miles.
The PT-1000 is a 1,000 mile, ultra-durable road & trail running shoe.
It makes no compromise on biomechanical performance or comfort as it features UK Gear's Force Dynamic System (FDS) – classified technology built on a foundation of proprietary compounds and materials.
The PT-1000 is the product of an on going research & development programme with the British military and has been awarded the right to bear the British Army's famous crossed swords insignia.
This Structured Cushioning (SC) shoe is supportive and long lasting with an excellent level of cushioning. Well suited for runners with an average running gait and mild to moderate stability needs.
Lightweight and comfortable
- Tested and used by the UK & German military
- On average twice as long-lasting as average running shoes.
"I won the event, and must credit the shoes for enabling me to run for consecutive days over varied terrain."
- Jon, winner of the Severn Challenge 2013
