Attendees of the Expo will be able to look, feel and even try on many different products that are designed to protect them and perhaps make their jobs just a little bit easier.  This event is a great way to facilitate strong connection between law enforcement members in the area with companies that make products that are specifically designed to enhance their day-to-day experience such as ALTAI™ tactical footwear.  We all know that law enforcement has one of the most difficult jobs in our society.  Getting high quality gear that protects and serves them well is extremely important.

ALTAI™ Tactical Boots Featured At April Expo, St. Cloud MN

One special product featured at the Chief of Police Association Expo are our ALTAI™ tactical boots.  They have been used for years by law enforcement, EMTs, firefighters, first responders, and other public safety officials for highly protective and effective foot protection.  These boots are water resistant, keeping your feet warm and dry in the elements, and they allow you to move around easily.  They also have strong tread that provides excellent traction on all types of terrain.  The speed lacing system on all ALTAI™ tactical boots makes getting in and out of the boots easy and fast.

These specialized boots are made from the highest quality materials that will take you where you need to go, for years. The upper, extends past the ankle for support and is made of SuberFabric®, a fabric material that is coupled with state of the art armor technology which gives the user protection, flexibility, breath-ability, stain and water resistance, all while keeping you light on your feet.  The ALTAI™ tactical boot also features a Vibram® outsole, which stands up to liquid without absorbing it.

MN Police and Fire SoftballIt was still dark when I picked up Don. It was 5 a.m. and we were heading north on our second trip to Duluth within 5 weeks. Last month we were invited to have a booth at the MN Police and Fire Softball Tournament by Duluth Police Officer Matt McShane. Matt organizes the annual tournament, which started in the Twin Cities in 1993, moved to Duluth around 2001, and Matt has run it the past nine years.

Don was pretty chipper, which considering he’s not an early-morning guy, was welcomed because now I could chat with him during the trip. My 12 year-old daughter (Olivia) was tagging along in the backseat. She’d begged me to let her come, and had convinced me to repack the truck to make room for her.

Thick fog socked in I35 for the last 45 minutes of the drive, creating a pinkish-orange haze as the sun rose. I’ve visited Duluth many times. My dad was raised in Duluth and I still have family there.   And yet as we rounded the corner on the outskirts of town and began our descent I was struck again by the beauty of the town and lake below. Despite its industrial appearance when you’re in the city, from high above the city manages to look both majestic and quaint at the same time.

We arrived at Wheeler Fields at 7:45 a.m. and set up our tent and display. I’d ordered a new 10x15 tent from EZ-UP with our ALTAI™ graphic and slogan (“Born to Outperform”) and it arrived the day before the tournament. Our old tent was a borrowed 10x10 shelter from a local recreational soccer team. The faded green canopy had holes here-and-there, it was difficult to set up and space was cramped. Though it kept us shaded it wasn’t the most professional looking shelter.

We assembled the new tent and got a look at it for the first time. I was impressed with the quality of the frame, fabric and graphics. Really easy to set up and the larger size allowed us to spread out, so we weren’t competing for shade later in the day.   We also learned our shelter is softball-proof later in the day, as it was occasionally pelted with a foul or over-thrown ball.

The tournament hosts sixteen teams from all over including Canada, and has competitive and recreational divisions. To be eligible to compete players must be full or part-time police officers, military, dispatchers, reserves, community service officers, fire-fighters, paramedics, jailers, prison guards, prison employees or any spouse of anyone in those occupations.

“Lake Superior Law Men” softball teamAlthough the first game wasn’t scheduled to start until 9 a.m., players were arriving early to set up their gear and warm up in the field. I was already sweating through my shirt from the heat, which became near-oppressive by mid-afternoon. Once the games began I saw teams from Minneapolis PD, St. Louis Park PD, Carlton County, Duluth PD, Eden Prairie PD, Brooklyn Park PD, Maple Grove PD, Thunder Bay and Plymouth PD. Other teams had jerseys which lacked a geographic indicator, and simply had names such as “The Fuzz” or “Metro’s Finest” printed on them. The players were good-natured and focused on their game. No arguing over plays and they delivered solid performances. The event was a class-act all the way.

During the day several players stopped by the tent to chat, buy boots or sign up for the free drawing; although most players jetted off to find air conditioning between games - and I really couldn’t blame them. At least I had shade while these guys were baking in the field.

The Competitive winner was Metro’s Finest and the Recreational winners were Maple Grove PD. Eden Prairie Police Officer Dan P. won the drawing for a free pair of ALTAI™ boots. He’d purchased a pair of tall black tactical boots during the tournament, and selected a pair of short black boots for summer-wear as his prize.

We packed it in at 5 p.m., and I’d brought along some shorts and sandals to change into before driving home. I’d worn a t-shirt, jeans and brown ALTAI™ boots all day and had sweat through my shirt and waistband. Now here’s a shock – and call it a “plug” if you want – but when I took off my socks they were DRY despite wearing boots since 5 a.m. and through the heat of the day. A true testament to the breathability of ALTAI™ boots – and not a claim I can make with any other boot I’ve worn in 21 years of corrections and law enforcement.

Benefit for Sgt. Jesse GarciaThe fundraising event for Sgt. Jesse Garcia raised $4,000, and Minneapolis Police Officer Richard Walker won the ALTAI™ boots in the silent auction. My wife and I met ALTAI™ Outreach Director Don White and his wife in the Yarusso’s parking lot, where the event was staged with tents and tables. There were about 50 motorcycle riders present from the bike run earlier that day; many of them representing police chapters of various bike clubs. Silent auction items and bid sheets were assembled on tables near the entrance, and we bid on some of the items before going through the buffet and sitting down to eat. The dinner was terrific, which is no surprise since Yarusso’s has been a St. Paul fixture since 1933.

A few days later Officer Walker came to the ALTAI™ showroom in Oakdale and selected a pair of short black boots as his prize. Officer Walker told me he works with Sgt. Garcia, and while he was happy to win the auction we both felt the gravity of Sgt. Garcia’s condition - our hearts were with Sgt. Garcia and his family. Thank you Officer Walker for your loyalty and support to your brother-in-blue.

Postscript: Sgt. Jesse Garcia passed away the morning of June 30th, 2015. Thank you Sgt. Garcia for your dedicated service; rest in peace brother.

Gear West Store Long Lake MNWaffles with greek yogurt and fresh berries were disappearing quickly at Gear West (, located in Long Lake, MN. Every Saturday morning Gear West sponsors a run/hike and provides breakfast for the participants. Don and I were there to represent ALTAI on July 18 and co-sponsor the event. Long Lake Gear West RunsParticipant numbers were down slightly due to folks cleaning up their yards after storms swept in particularly hard the previous night, with a local tornado and strong winds knocking out power for thousands and downing trees. This morning Mother Nature was equally hard to deny - showing her sunny side and keeping spirits light for a fine run. We enjoyed the meal along with the runners returning from their weekly morning jaunt. A big “thank you” to Corey for inviting us to the event – next time we’ll rent a paddleboard for some fun on nearby Long Lake!

Get out any Saturday for some fresh air while the weather is still nice, you might even see us there!

esse Garcia III Bike Run & Benefit MNAt ALTAI, we’re constantly blown away by the sacrifices that the men and women that choose to wear our boots make for our great country. Whether it’s by serving overseas or serving in local public service, these brave individuals work hard each and everyday to protect our country, often without any recognition, and sometimes with a bit of ridicule from those who don’t appreciate their service.

Recently we heard about a Minneapolis Police Sergeant Jesse Garcia III, who is a 24-year veteran of the Minneapolis Police Department and was unfortunately recently diagnosed with stage-4 stomach cancer. Jesse is a 1985 graduate of St. Paul Johnson High School and joined the local police force in 1990 and hasn’t left since. Jesse is a family man and has kids that light up his world. He’s been an active contributor to the Minneapolis/St. Paul communities for decades and was even the media spokesperson for the Minneapolis Police Department for many years. Jesse is currently undergoing treatment, but the community has responded in droves to try and support Jesse and his loving family.

ALTAI™, a professional shoe company that creates long lasting tactical boots designed specifically for this field will be one of the vendors in attendance.

ALTAI™ Boots and Law Enforcement

Law enforcement officers are out on their feet on a daily basis working long hours. Over time this can take a big wear on your feet. Stop purchasing the cheap boots that are not comfortable and only last a few months. Instead, commit to providing support and comfort to your feet by investing in ALTAI™ tactical boots. Don’t let tired feet be the reason you were not able to succeed on the job. What is great about the ALTAI™ tactical boots is that they provide officers with added protection over the ankles while feeling like you are wearing tennis shoes. Additionally, the SuberFabric® used in our boots is fabric made from armored plates. With our breathable, waterproof and long lasting tactical boots, you will wish you took the plunge with ALTAI™ years ago!

ALTAI™ Team at the 2015 ETI

Make it a priority to come join the ALTAI™ team at some point during your stay at the 2015 Executive Training Institute. We will have boots available for you to try on and will have specialists available to go into further detail about the benefits behind the ALTAI™ tactical boots for law enforcement. This is one of the largest events of the year, so we know you have a lot of spots to stop and see during your stay. Making a stop to see ALTAI™ will be a decision that you will not regret.

Book those tickets to the 2015 Executive Training Institute in St. Cloud, MN soon. This wonderful event is quickly approaching and you don’t want to be the one that misses it.
