PORTLAND, Ore. – Danner today announced the availability of the new Kinetic™, a lightweight, fast and flexible boot made specifically with law enforcement in mind. Kinetic is made to go the distance and outlast the rigors and exposure that police officers, correctional officers and S.W.A.T. officers may be exposed to.
With Ultralon footbeds for all all-day comfort, polyurethane midsoles for added support and ballistic rip stop nylon, the Danner Kinetic is lightweight, fast and ready for anything. The Kinetic is made with durable, quick-to-polish full-grain leather, and comes with either 100% waterproof GORE-TEX® lining, or a highly breathable, moisture-wicking lining for warm weather comfort. It also features a multidirectional low lug outsole for superior surface contact, as well as a reinforced heel and metatarsal construction for added protection.
“We listened to the needs of active law enforcement officers closely when designing the Kinetic,” says Drew Linth, Senior Product Development Manager for Danner. “With function as our primary objective we were able to build a very athletic boot that is lightweight, comfortable and durable. All of the details in this boot, from the soft collar for comfort while sitting in a vehicle to the broad flat lug design of the outsole for increased surface contact and durability, went into creating a boot that officers could feel comfortable and confident in every day.”
The Danner Kinetic comes in a 6″ or 8″ profile with hot weather or GORE-TEX linings available, and runs in men’s sizes 4-16D with half sizes to 12, and 7-14EE with half sizes to 12. The suggested retail price for the Kinetic ranges from $119.95 MSRP for the 6″ hot weather style, to $139.95 for the 8″ GORE-TEX style. Danner also now offers a Kinetic boot specifically made for the Army, and meets all AR 670-1 requirements for optional wear.
