Police boots are a kind of boots especially designed for people that are in the police, as the name suggests. Commonly misunderstood as combat boots or army jungle boots, police boots are actually a bit different than combat boots in terms of a few technical things. Combat boot are actually designed for military personnel. That means that the boots are designed for environments that are tough and rugged to say the least. Combat boots have a kind of strong sole that helps the wearer traverse all kinds of lands whether it is rocky, muddy or any other rough kind of land.
Here is a list of the Best Police Boots
On the other hand, police boots are designed in a way that their sole is the basic thing that differentiates them from combat boots. Since police boots are worn by policemen in areas where the land is more or less level and there are little or no complications when it comes to traversing the land, the main idea behind designing police boots is comfort, durability and providing a nice grip for the feet. In opposition to the combat boots, the police/duty boots have a sole that is slightly similar to the sole of joggers and not necessarily boots.

The fashion industry today has evolved to an extent where each style incorporates certain elements of actual things worn in uniform.
