When Original S.W.A.T. was founded in 1999, they set out to make a better boot for Law Enforcement, Military, EMT and others who work hard for a living. They focus on tactical footwear for people who depend on their boots everyday. They understand that their customers do not work in an office, but in the deserts of Afghanistan, the border near Nogales, back alleys, correctional institutions, etc.

They test their boots in the lab and in the field, listen to their customer's feedback and analyze any returned boots. Everyday they are engaged in a continuous improvement cycle, constantly learning how to make tactical footwear last longer and perform better.
