Good boots turn into übersneakers when good and broken in. I could play basketball comfortably in mine. Few cops should ever be so lucky as to experience this level of comfort.
Chase someone? Ha,Ha, Half the cops I see these days are Fat A$$ed Women,who couldn't catch a doughnut,if it was rolled right at them.
Shouldn't they be in good shape too, then?
athletic shoes aren't actually that comfortable if you're going to be on your feet for long periods of time. The small advantage they offer in the event of a foot chase is far outweighed by the disadvantage of sore feet.
Actually the shoes they wear do offer better support than sneakers, and are lightweight enough to allow them to run quite easily.
My son in law wears good comfortable shoes that are easy to run in just for that reason
no, they should wear sneakers so that they can sneakier criminals.
they do in my city.... black ones of course
no because after they catch the bandit they have to kick his *** hard to do in sneakers
I've been saying that for years, but nobody listens.
It sure would have helped.
They should wear cleats.
