The first commercial product ever to be produced in association with the British Army is the UK Gear PT-03 running shoe and bears the Army’s crossed-swords logo inside the tongue as a symbol of its endorsement. The PT-03 was developed by UK Gear over a period of 18 months, part of which instructors from the British Army’s APTC (Army Physical Training Corps) advised on its design and tested it.
