SWAT Boots History & Development
SWAT (acronym for Special Weapons And Tactics) is a commonly used proper name for police and law enforcement units, which use military-style light weapons and specialized tactics in high-risk operations that fall outside of the capabilities of regular, uniformed police.
‘SWAT’ is commonly used internationally, as a colloquial, generic term for these specialised police units.
Their duties include: confronting heavily armed criminals; performing hostage rescue and counter-terrorism operations; high risk arrests; and entering armoured or barricaded buildings.
Such units are often equipped with specialized firearms including submachine guns, assault rifles, breaching shotguns, sniper rifles, riot control agents, and stun grenades.
They have specialised equipment including heavy body armour, ballistic shields, entry tools, armoured vehicles, advanced night vision optics, and motion detectors for covertly determining the positions of hostages or hostage takers, inside enclosed structures.
They also wear some of the finest boots known, hence the rise in popularity of SWAT boots both in and outside the traditional police, military and security forces groups.

The Haix Ranger Gsg9 – SWAT Boot was developed with Special Operation Commandos and SWAT teams. These boots really can be described as tactical Swat boots and can be seen worn by specialist units around the World.
This has led to the boots having amazing features which make them ideal for all police and specialist unit applications. This includes the Haix Climate system keeping feet dry and comfortable.
• Leather uppers
• Gore CROSSTECH (Crosstech by Gore is resistant to penetration from blood and body fluids, as well as being waterproof and breathable. Increased chemical protection)
• Sun Reflect (reduces the heating effect of the upper leather by direct sunlight. Sunlight is reflected by the leather, keeping the leather and feet cooler)
• Energy absorbing heel
• Anti static and anti slip resistant sole
• Haix Climate System (uses the pumping movement which permits air circulation with every step – moist air is released and fresh air comes in through the vents at the top of the boot)
• Kevlar protective sole – resistant to puncture from sharp objects

Another popular style of SWAT boots are the Lowa Boots Patrol from the Task Force collection.
Lowa boots can be seen in use by members of all branches of the Armed Forces, specialist Police teams and those dedicated to the pursuit of an outdoor life anywhere.

With no breaking in time you can literally hit the ground running. The Lowa Patrol is a tough boot that will take whatever you can throw at it.
Whilst the Patrol boot doesn’t have the Gore-Tex lining of the Lowa Mountain or Combat, what this means in practice is that you have a more versatile pair of lowa boots that will dry out quicker if your feet have been fully submersed and will provide maximum breathability and heat management in warmer climates.
