Boots

MLA’s police boots are designed and manufactured to the highest standard. The latest boots, the Typhoon Plus and the Typhoon Met, both meet the updated BSI standard: BS 7971-5:2016.

The MLA Typhoon boot to EC standards & BS 7971-5:2004 is still available.

The revised standard is intended to reduce the risk of injury to the user, who might be faced with threats such as impact, heat, flame and the effects of certain liquids, which in some circumstances may be burning liquids. The improvements have enabled the introduction of new technologies such as including an integral metatarsal protection using D30, which has removed the requirement for an external metatarsal guard.

MLA offer 2 different boot options at this standard:

Defender Typhoon Plus - improvements include:
• Lace fixings changed from eyelets to D-rings. This prevents chemicals getting under the eyelet facing flap and bottom of the tongue
• New fire retardant lace
The tongue and collar are now manufactured from leather to pass additional burning behaviour test.

Defender Typhoon - with Metatarsal Guard

This is the same boot with a internal metatarsal guard made from D30 technology - reducing the need to purchase an over-the-boot guard, providing built in extra protection.
