Shoe usage by Army personnel is very different as compared to normal users. They use the shoe with extra load [all the combat gear, ammunition, their ration that can go up to 30 Kilos]. They run in all kinds of terrains – which at times can be rocky and muddy.
To summarize their requirements:
Powerful grip to handle wet rocky terrain
Flexible shoe to allow cross country long distance runs
Superlight to reduce the fatigue
Powerful ventilation to keep the feet dry and stink free
Design elements to reduce stress on knees and ankles
Shoes that survive years of usage
Shoes that are affordable to all and not just high officials.
Hulk project was about 18 months of hard work – including iterations to deliver the final version, which is the next generation of shoes for Armed Personnel.
The sole uses thick layer of Phylon mid-sole which strengthens its shock absorbing capabilities
The outsole is made of rubber which gives it powerful grip and also gives it extra life
The boots are made with water repellant German fabric combined with Genuine Leather giving it extra years of life
The tapered memory foam cushioning has years of life and is designed to reduce stress on knees and ankle
The shoe weighs about 1.2Kgs which is 75% lighter than official DMS boots
The upper is stitched to the sole both in front and at the back to add to its life
The shoe lining is a specially made woven lining which is designed to accelerate the ventilation
The insole is made of harness leather which means it will survive years of usage.
Hulk comes in multiple versions
it starts with Canvas Centric Jungle boots and continues till Apache which is a tactical military boot made of leather.
The HULK series is still evolving where constant upgrades are part of the process as more usage data comes out. A new HULK is being tested which can handle the impact of Landmine Blast.
